Yes, but at least it'll be cheap!

Empire PVP is awful anyways, it's got all the problems of lowsec and then on top of that a million neuts and RR exploits and blah blah blah. In 0.0 you avoid this BS, fight like men, AND it's not like people stay in EVE-Uni for their entire career. More targets for me when they get big fish small pond syndrone and form an alliance like CVA.

And what I find interesting about this thread.

That EVE university has to have a war dec shield.
And the number of people in NPC corps because of war dec's.
Something is wrong with this picture.

This policy change allows every highsec corporation to do just that, avoid all non-consensual highsec PvP except the suicide gank.

And EVE University is not a corp filled with newbs. The majority of their members are a year old or older. It is a carebear corporation.


If you only play Eve to grief, this policy may make you asshurt enough to quit over it.

And if you only play Eve to grief and you've been doing it a while you've made people quit.

If you only play Eve to carebear and have been harassed by griefers this policy would likely make you wish to stay/rejoin.

Furthermore, griefing is in fact against the eula, but it is rarely enforced.

CCP could choose to leave the rules intact and simply ban the griefers, but this course of action would result in a loss in income. CCP chose to change one rule so that they wouldn't have to enforce 2 rules. Its funny how people only cry about the one that effects then negatively. i.e. you are harassing Caldari Citzen10917 in game, he corp jumps, you cry. You would cry a lot harder if CCP banned your ass for harassment, which they have explicitly reserved the right to do.

And of course, this is so they can work on important stuff like FiS instead of mediate.

So, basically killing anyone in highsec (without a wardec), you would call griefing and/or harassment?

That's the GM job. To mediate. They don't code. They don't work on FiS. They are the customer service reps.

The problem is that this won't affect griefers in any way.

It probably won't affect the nuisance deccers all that much either, since they'll just switch methods to get their killmails, but it does affect proper warfare something immensely.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know how much such a decshield costs on a weekly basis? Seems to me that would be a pretty big ISK sink.

FWIW the only non-consensual PvP I worry about in high-sec is suiciding or aggression mechanics. If my corp gets war-deced and I don't want to deal with it, I would simply drop corp and come back when the nuisance is gone.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the Uni (and Tippia in a month) have essentially created NPC corps for a weekly fee. Where's the problem here, tax rate or something? The Uni already has a pretty stiff tax rate IIRC.

Leaves only the fresh scent of pine.

Awwww......ONE alliance in the whole of Eve that you can't war dec and you want to cry....

Boo hoo, maybe you'll have to war dec someone that will actually fight back this time...

Yeah, I've read that several times while you were making a fool out of yourself. What's the issue? Also, Kelduum has repeatedly stated that he has never petitioned or asked CCP for special treatment, regardless of what was actually on his list. I have no reason to believe you over him, especially since he could just be trolling the village idiot Stanziel.

Making a list of how E-Uni's existence in EVE could be improved and then handing that list to CCP ... that's not asking for special treatment? How would you describe that then?

So, even if he did, I don't see any special treatment being handed out. Tippia is about to use the same mechanic to (hopefully) turn a profit. Please explain to me where all the fuss is.

If there's something wrong with this picture we should all start thinking what's the cause of it.

It's not the new "shield" or the NPC corps. It's how player corps run, the time play requirements in those, the notion of KB stats where you get warnings because you've got ganked 5 times this month and only made 2 poor kils, Ring bell CTA's.

Those you mentioned mean some freedom, everything else doesn't. That's the problem when the game notion becomes a second job.

I contend that this wardec policy change was to benefit the Uni ... that it actually affects all highsec corporations just gives it the appearance that no favouritism was involved.

Even if it was done to benefit a carebear learning institute, who ******* cares? Anyone can use the mechanic.

Making yourself immune to wardecs should be available to nobody.

There should be some sort of system in place (bidding system?) where some wardecs will get through and some won't ... depending on how much you want to pay to initiate or avoid.

If you absolutely have to go with a decshield, it depends on how high you want the cost for the enemy to be. The wiki provides us with the formula:

B * (N +1) * (W + 1), where B = Base Price (2M for a corp, 50M for an alliance), N = number of wars you currently have (1 for your shielddeccing corp), W = number of wars currently against the target corporation (which is the number you're aiming to inflate with the shield).

For a single corp, though, joining and leaving a decshedding alliance will probably be cheaper (only 2M a month in upkeep fee per corp, which the alliance will probably want to recoup as a fee), and will also have more effect (since you get rid of the wardec entirely, instead of just making it more expensive).

The problem is that this makes wardecs in highsec pointless. If I want to save my POSes from someone who wants “my” moon, then I can just evade the wardec that is needed to get rid of it, and no-one will ever be able to disrupt my S&I activities there.

Neither is EVE University. You've been misled. Only 15% of their total membership are characters less than three months old.


Can you back this up?

Poetic never lets things like facts or proof get in the way of his obsession with the uni.

So quite a bit. CCP might just be thinking "rather than deal with all these petitions that are kind of hard to prove, we just let them have the ISK sink."

I gathered that much, and that is really the only problem I see. Here is where I see petitioning working to alleviate the problem, until and if high-sec warfare gets a facelift (which apparently it needs?)
