Basically he sees it as a defense against miner bumping, especially considering most of those miner bumpers happen to be in NPC corporations. Unless you want to get CONCORDed, there's not a whole lot you can do to discourage them.
Obviously, if this can be used against miner bumpers, it can be used against miners. But that's not necessarily a bad thing if the system is designed correctly.
Since Aiden was so short on details, other than comparing it directly to wardecs (a 1v1 wardec system), I figure I'll toss out a few of my own preliminary ideas.
- Can only be declared against an individual.
- Can only be placed on a member of an NPC corporation.
- Three hour ramp up time.
- Six hours in length.
- Three hour ramp down time.
- No automatic renewals. If someone wishes to manually renew a killdec, they will have to wait for the ramp down timer to end.
- Cost: perhaps in the 5M-10M ISK range.
The NPC corporation-only restriction is important. It ensures NPC corps are no longer safe havens. If a player isn't in an NPC corp, it means someone is going to have to go after the entire corporation/alliance via the usual wardec system, they can't single a specific person out.
