So me a few friends are taking a break from 0.0 life and we get war dec by a 1 man corp. The CEO is 3 months old toon with no standings with anyone. Obviously this is some alt for someone else and was expecting the corp to start growing in size. So far no new members to this corp so I am guessing he knows a way to work the game mechanics to allow outsides War Rights.

It has been a long time since having to deal with high sec war so can anyone shed some light on current tricks with it? Is there something with the gang mechanics this guy is taking advantage of? I seem to remember there was one where peeps joining a gang that was at war become members of that war.

He'll either have a ton of neutral RR or he wants you to think he has a ton of neutral RR so get scared/annoyed/bored enough to pay him to drop the wardec.

Neutral RR or he saw you guys in indy/hulks and wants some targets.

Or he is a ballsy pilot and will try to single you guys out.

The WarDec does not bother me, I am just wonder what his angle is. The CEO is an alt of someone else and I guessing he knows a way to get war rights without being in the corp.

I have an alt corp that dec'd a corp for the labs. The tower wasn't on-line but as soon as I put the dec in they fueled it and on-lined it. I had forgotten about it and think the war is paid automatically so chances are that the war is still active and the guys are probably paranoid wondering wtf is going on.

The wardec has probably been made by an alt in a holding corp to reduce your ability to gather intel prior to commencement of hostilities as a counter-intelligence method.

Once the wardec goes live (or thereabouts, and if they wish to continue with the war) you'll probably only then have the combatant characters joining the hostile corp.

This way, if they decide to do nothing you are still in the dark; if they do something, then you have less time to prepare (by reviewing getting character histories, preferred ships, killboard info, etc).

If he has spotted an expensive mission ship he'll keep the dec live for months or until you've forgotten you're at war, whichever comes first. Then he joins the corp with a pew pew char, and kills something expensive before hopping to another alt corp to repeat.
