2009.06.11 00:50
The options are: 1 us 100 million and we shut the war immediately and you are free.
2 points or 1 month and meanwhile some ships which will burst at the end we like the double back 100 million

Just move. If the mafia explodes your italian deli twice, you don't build a new one in the still smoking heap of the last one, you prevent it from turning out the same way again, then build a new.

Not really. You still have the same options.
1. pay
2. move
3. get killed while fighting back
4. keep gettin killed without fighting back
5. join another corp

That's a) highsec and b) minmatar space (very important fact, since I try to avoid it, it got.. minmatarian dude and dudettes there, wtf). Their corp has 4 members, 50% taxrate and their CEO is 6 months old.. with a longer corp history than mine.

I think it's safe to say they're no threat to anyone. Tbh, let them start the wardec and then stay logged on in station when you sleep, eat, shower, whatever. Even if they do kill you, you'll grief them more than they grief you.

Either case, I think you're a troll, but you're just so cute I can't help myself but answering. ..prolly need a drink. Neutral

Depends on how long it takes for them to get bored. If it lasts past the end of the first week I would be surprised. (Actually, if they dec you I would be surprised)

What the hell are they going to do. It's high sec, you're a brand new player. There's two scenarios:
* Either you are new and can't pay the 100mil. Then you will either get killed (and drop nothing of value), or run away (they waste their money).
* Or you are an alt of an older player, and then you'll just laugh at them anyway.

I'd feel more sympathetic except that you seem to be under the impression that the agressing corp is being "lame" (I think they're lame too but for different reasons). It's completely legit for people to threaten wardecs against your corp, no matter how new you are. If you can't defend/provide defense for your corp, you've got no business having a corp.

Either join a corp that can defend its members instead of starting your own, or, if you really feel the need to be in control of something, stay in your NPC corp, make a chat channel and invite people to it.

That comment just got so much more fun, considering the corp name of the aggressors.

Ignore him. Empty threats is all he's throwing at you.

If he really is legit in trying to get you, he's wasting his time. Since you're still flying frigates, you've got barely anything to lose. Remaking isk for lost frigates is super easy.

Not exactly easy to do in the noob ship though....I remember making my first steps in EVE and getting into my Retriever...then losing it (later getting it reimbursed). As a new player, seeing your ship explode just shows how harsh EVE is.

Good luck and welcome to EVE. Cool

Starting your own corp straight off does risk this kind of thing.

Though personally I'd be rather embarrassed to have people think that harrassing a bunch of new players was worth my time.

Evemail me, as it might be a fun little war for my corp.

7. Learn how to fight and then use their wardec to get a few free highsec kills. (No, I'm not offering to train. I suck at PvP myself.)

Had the same issues when i started the game.

Just ignore them and they will go away or move to a new part of eve.

It hard going in the world of eve spec for the first few weeks while everything is overwhelming.

You will have a couple million ISK in your wallet when i login as a gift as i know how hard it is to make isk when you first start and having a bit in your wallet in those early times can make the game so much more fun.

Or you can sit back and watch as all these corps war dec them. That does seem to be the direction it's going in.
