So CCP changed the corp jumping mechanics to allow people to leave corps and not deem it an exploit.

But what about people forcing a war dec that lets them shoot without the 24 hour notice period??

Notification 1

AAA Destruction Declares War Against BBB
From: CONCORD
Sent: 2012.01.04 23:43

AAA has declared war on BBB.
Fighting can legally occur between those involved.


Notification 2

AAA Retracts War Against BBB
From: CONCORD
Sent: 2012.01.04 23:43

The war between AAA and BBB is coming to an end.AAA has retracted the war against BBB. The war will be declared as being over after approximately 24 hours.

Corp management tab shows

Started 2012.01.01 00:00:05
Issued By AAA
Against BBB
Finished 2012.01.04 23:43:00
Can Fight Yes
Retracted 2012.01.04 23:43:00
Mutual No

So explain to me, how a dec can made, immediately pulled, and they get 24 hours to shoot someone???

This was is on an alt, but the same thing happened to this corp a few months back. I thought it was noobs being silly initially, but now I realised that a number of corps are doing this to get legal pew in high sec without their targets realising they have started a war and don't have the 24 hours grace period.

Oh, there is also a typo in the retraction notification - no space between the period and the name of the deccer

coming to an end.[war deccer] has retracted

(Only thing I could think up that worked with BBB...What?)

Edit: Big Breasted Bandits is better.

They decced us - no idea if they have found anyone yet and tried to shoot them...

The issue is that they can shoot without the 24 hour notice occuring

^^^^ This.

OP, are you really expecting EVE to have correct documentation on how Anything works? If so, you must be really new here.

Can Fight = Yes

Or is the game so broken that this flag says that they can fight, when it actual fact they can't??? Roll

Probably, yeah. Plenty of stuff in the game that says one thing, but acts differently.

Anything except joining a corp within space is allowed according to the big wardec thread.

CCP doesn't give a rat's ass about highsec war dec mechanics anymore, so if the problem that you say exists actually exists don't expect some kind of solution.

I could be nice and say "I hope they fix it" but it's been 6 years since the mechanics were adjusted so I'm not holding my breath.

A corporation/alliance will always have to wait for 24 hours before aggressions can begin at the start of a war, there is no way to bypass this timer, war retraction shenanigans will not actually achieve this.

A corporation will however continue to be involved in a war for 24 hours after leaving a warring alliance. Notifications such as the ones in this thread are sent out in such an event, but they are sadly not very descriptive at all so it is quite easy to mistake them for an exploit while everything is actually in order.


In this particular instance, AAA (corporation) was a member of CCC (alliance), an alliance which was at war with BBB (alliance). AAA left CCC at 2012.01.04 23:43 (the time at which the notifications were sent) and will therefore continue to be at war with any entities CCC was at war with for a period of 24 hours. Note that AAA was already at war with these entities before through their membership of CCC.

Finally, if any of CCC's wars had started less than 24 hours ago, it would mean that AAA would not be at war with them until that stasis period ends. For example, if CCC had declared war on DDD at 2012.01.04 23:00, both CCC and AAA wouldn't be able to fire upon DDD targets until 2012.01.05 23:43. AAA would in other words only be at war for 43 minutes before their involvement ends as they left the CCC alliance the day before.

So GM and CCP posts also notify you, I guess.

What about the target of a wardec joining an alliance after the war is active? That causes an instant war between the agressors and the alliance the target joined:

  1. Corp A declares war on Corp B.
  2. Corp B applies to alliance C.
  3. 24 hours pass while the alliance application is processed.
  4. Corp A is at war with Alliance C the instant the notifications arrive.

The Alliance can see Corp B's incoming wardec, IIRC.

Only by explicitly searching for wars (no automated notification). And Corp A has no warning at all.

Why haven't you given peaceful corporations the option of blocking war declarations? I want to hear the reasoning from CCP on this and not just gankers who want things to stay the same so they can get easy industrial kills in high sec.
