At this point wardecs are complelty controlled by the agressor. The attacked Corp has absolutely no say in how long the war will last (unless they want to turn into the agressor and extend it). For those that don't want to be be a target, the only option is to join an NPC corp.

I'd like to see a mechanic where "PVP Co" decs "Indy Co". During the 24 hour waiting period Indy Co can bid for Peace. They can pay Concord an amount of isk of their choice(with a minimum of maybe 10m, or possibly matching the dec ammount). From the time of that payment, PVP Co then has 24 hours to match the amount in the Bid for Peace. If they match, war begins as normal. If they choose not to match the bid, war can't be declared again for a week.

I played with the idea of having the bids go back and forth, but I think just having one bid cycle might be better.

This provides corps that have no intrest in waring a possible (if costly) method of avoiding one. While at the same time forcing attacking corps to make a cost\risk analysis to determine if its worth it to attack right now, or to wait a week.

In addition to those who just want to try to avoid war, it allows coporations that want to delay a week to prepare more a chance to do that.

After a week of war, the re-newing cost would be the same as current unless a method can be devised for the bid to happen again.

Supported in principle. War declarations need some kind of overhaul.

One of the more reasonable proposals. As long as 'not fighting' carries some kind of cost for the defender, it's better than the usual "lolz, I no PvP" proposals.

Problem is you'll start bidding wars....that intentionally force you to shell out tons of cash.

Even greifer corps have tons of ISK backing them.

They are ALL carebears... all they need to do is make sure they have more than you do...and force you to go bankrupt by making you pay through the nose... they can keep rotating corps until you pay up.

Line up some 1 man griefing tool.

In short.... not supporting.

Like the idea, but not the implementation. Don't want to make it a "winner goes to the richest" game.
Use the money in your proposal to pay a corp to wardec your aggressors instead, or protect you. Problem solved.

Wardec mechanic overhaul is one of the crowd source topics. If you think perpetual wardec'ing coward corps are a pain, vote for that topic to be brought up in the next CSM.

Terrible idea. The agressor should choose the amount that the agressed has to pay. They can pay it or not its up to them. A negotiable system that goes through concord is fine,

What does need fixing is the ability for members and corps to up sticks and leave and alliance to avoid the war.

I support the idea of people not being able to leave a war as long as they have the option of not being able to be wardeced in a non NPC corp.

Some people do like to play EVE as a game and not have to worry about some 30 yr old wardecing them all the time because his parents molested him when he was younger and now he is taking his aggression out on them.

Sure as long as no one can be agressed unless at war, already flashy red, or kill rights.
