I have a Corp with just me in it.
Some buttmuch has dec's war on me and not only do I not know why, I have no desire to PvP.
Is there any way other than begging this person to stop dec'ing war on me?
I read through the forums and all i can find is that both me and the other person (who i s also the only on in that Corp) have to be in the same station at the same time and agree to end the war.

Well... you do have a few options...

- you can jump corp and just hang around in an NPC corp for awhile. Those can't be war decced but you have to pay an 11% tax on your market activities (you gains some, you lose some).
- you can talk to the people deccing you corp and see what they want.
- hop into a T1 frigate and buzz toward them like the mad mosquito you are (oh wait...)
- join a larger, more beefy corp/alliance that can defend itself and you.

As for your lack of desire to PvP... remember that you are playing an MMO and at any time in any place in EvE you may be subject to "non-consensual" player vs. player interaction. "Being left alone" just isn't a [completely] viable play style in this game. Confused

OP, hai...

Your best bet is to stop begging anything from these people. Thats exactly the sort of tears they are doing this for. Remember that what they are doing is well within the rules and game mechanics of EVE, so calling them buttmunches etc will only bring more hurt upon you.

The reasons why they wardecced you could be one of many:
1 - Doing it for the lulz and tears. Nuff said.
2 - Doing it because you are a one man corp and therefore an easy target.
3 - Doing it for vengeance. If you mouthed off at them at some point, or annoyed them in any other way, they will want your blood and tears. Mainly tears.
4 - Doing it for a living. Nuff said.

Your best bet is to simply leave your corp if you have no desire or ability to fight back, nor enough isk to pay for mercenaries. They cannot hurt you if you are in an NPC corp ( other than suiciding you ).

Or you can dock up and wait untill they leave you alone. But then you wont be doing much of anything, so just quit your corp.

Getting wardecced is an inevitability in EVE if you are in a corp, most especially if its a one man corp. Its part of the game mechanics, and everything is working exactly as intended.

You have to adapt, or you will die.

This is EVE.

Make an alt and pass the corp to him. Have your main leave the corp and wait until the war is called off or expires. It costs money for them to do this. Point and laugh at them.

Rinse and repeat.

This probably isn't even anything to worry about.

The first time you get wardecced can be a bit scary and worrying, but you need to relax and accept that it's the way of things in Eve and may be a quite casual thing for the other party.

Add him to your address book/watchlist and you can then see when he is online. Chances are he'll not often even be online when you are.

Deccing a one-man corp is really boring actually, I'd be surprised if he has the persistence to come after you much.

Thanks for all the help folks.
Just for the record.. I hadn't resorting to "begging". I did send an Eve-mail asking (politely) what was up and explaining my position.
I did add them to watch list and lowered there standing with me to "terrible" so I can keep an eye on them.
And tbh, I do like PvP, just now with someone who has been playing since conception of Eve vs. my limited time.

Thanks again everyone and fly safe :)

Let me clarify something (which might make you breath a bit easier)...

The age of a character is [almost] meaningless.


Allow me to elaborate...

A player can start his/her character's journey in the game hoping to become a miner (a very common story that even applies to me I might add). After a few million SP (and a month or three) have been spent on training up to be a "decent" miner, that player may have a change of heart and want to something different... like learn how to PvP.
So here is a character, with several months and SP under their belt. On the surface, they may SEEM to have an advantage over you just based on their age. However their combat based skills may not be much better than a week old nubbin's.
Another scenario (again, an often repeated one that I am also guilty of) is training too many different skills and spreading one's skill points "thin"... again, leaving one in a position where they are not much better than a relatively new player.
Yet another scenario is where a player quickly trains up his/her toon to use... say... a T2 ship... and never bothers to also train up the necessary support skills to use said ship properly. So again, you have a player who, on the surface, looks like he/she can mop the floor with you but is really quite "squishy."

Another thing to bear in mind is that REGARDLESS of how long a person has played or how many skills they have trained up... only a LIMITED number of those skills will be used based on the ship that said player chooses to fly.
This is further compounded by the fact that ALL skills cap out at level 5.
Which is again compounded by the fact that getting some of those skills to level 5 is often not worthwhile in the short-run (many will simply train a skill to level 4 and then move on the next skill unless they MUST have level 5 to fulfill a prerequisite for another skill).

So lets say you alter your training schedule to master... say... frigate combat.

- Get you Navagation skills (specifically the ones governing ABs, MWDs, and warp drive) to level 4. Shouldn't take more than a week and a half... maybe 2.
- Get the skill Propulsion Jamming to level 4. Another 3 or 4 days.
- Get your frigate ship skill of choice to level 4. That's 2 days. A week if you wish to go up to level 5.
- Get your Gunnery or Missile support skills up... level 3 at least. That takes about a week or two.
- Get you turret or launcher of choice up to level 5. That's a week.

Congrats. That's 2 to 2.5 months and you are now flying at about 60 to 70% effectiveness to a "veteran" player in a similar frigate.
If you spend another month or so working on getting your support skills like Weapon Upgrades, Advanced Weapon Upgrades, Electronics, Engineering, Mechanic, and Hull Upgrades to level 4... you're flying at 80% effectiveness to a "veteran." Get some of those to 5 and the gap keeps closing.

When you close the so-called "power gap" then ship fittings and ship use become more important than plain old SP (note: you still won't win in a 1v1 brawl, but you can employ more "creative" tactics and fits to throw them off and give you an edge).

Or you could go like me, 'm in a 2008 character but I only got 5-8 months of sp under my belt. Been playing on and off but it still says 08Cool usefull at times though.

If I read this correctly then there is only one person in the corp deccing you as well? Then I have to assume you play in the same TZ or are we crying before the attack? Move to another part of space, if you are a miner find some other belts if you are a mission runner get a new agent, yes he can use a locator agent to find you but he'll have to pay for it over and over agin as you keep moving, and he will have to pay to keep the war dec up as well. Set up Eve to warn you when he logs in and keep an eye on local where ever you are. If he shows up dock or leave. Deny him combat long enough and he'll get bored with it and let the dec drop.

I had the same situation when i first started my corp. I was the only guy and within a week i had a war dec from a single man corp.

I guessed he was in the same TZ as me as he was always on, but i got myslef a Wreath fitted out and just ran courier missions, when delivered i just grabbed whatever courier agent i could find in that station/system. Each night i made a few hundred jumps across dozens of regions.

He was chasing me down, and I saw him a few times in local just as I was either docking or warping out. I even ran into Old Man Star a few times and he didnt have the bottle to come in after me. I made a few friends down there as well who let me fly around in there for a bit.

Eventually he started smacktalking me in local and getting quite ****ty with me, i think this was made even worse when he spotted me a few times in a crappy T1 hauler.

This went on into the second week and on the twelth day he withdrew his dec.

I had made quite a bit of isk (well, it seemed like quite a lot at the time)
But best of all I reckon I had won without firing a shot.
