never thought this would happen but someone who has allot of isk war decd our corp with an alt corp of theirs. it's been going on for over a month and we have not seen a single war target. would this be considered an abuse of an eve mechanic if the corp who is war decing you is never active and only logs on to pay the war bill?

Nope. You just angered someone, and they are too lazy/wimpy to fight.

No, that's not abuse. Just set that corp to red and dock up if he comes in system with you. If he's never online, he can't do anything to you.

Not at all, since he's not actually doing anything to you if he's not attacking your corp members, he's just keeping a wardec open.

Also, he may just be testing your response before decing you with a real corp.

I do this all the time, what will really bother you is when you don't notice him join his alt corp and kick your asses unexpectedly.

One man wars happen all the time because they are griefers. It's their isk.

Careful,

The practice of insta-joining/leaving warring corporations for the purpose of surprising war targets, or getting them in trouble with CONCORD, is considered an exploit from here on. Reports of this will be investigated on a case by case basis and warnings will be issued at the discretion of the GM. Repeated incidents may result in bans on accounts involved.

Edit: maybe not
