One of the other pirate corps wardeced us. We fly with them and we shoot at them and they at us all of the time. It seems that the relationship has always been a level thing. So, when the war dec came in I wondered what had happened.
It seems that they are unhappy that when they pewpew with us they have to deal with gate/station guns since they are all flashy red. We stay yellow because being flashy red is inconvenient. Therefor, the wardec is to level the playing field, per them.
I was going to comment how we are not technically 'pirates' or 'outlaws' because we stay above flashy red. However, this kind of defines it for me. We're a low sec PvP corp. We are called pirates.
Hmmm. At first I had a rush of 'oh shit'. Then I realized I didn't care. I'm cautious of them anyway and never hang around them. A day ago, they asked us to come probe out the carrier that I didn't get on the kill mail for. I dunno, it makes me roll my eyes. I was worried for my high sec shenanigans but then I realized that they don't do high sec.
I'm not dropping corp and running. Low sec is still just as dangerous as it was before. I didn't trust the group then and I am glad that I didn't get warm, fuzzy feelings for them as I have another corp we run with. This corp even says that they are not blue to anyone or anyone blue to them.
This is why I am here. Sure, there is the newbie thrill of it all. At first I had a 'should I stay in station and play my alts?' moment. Then I realized that no, nothing has changed. The funny part is that I go out of town for 10 days next week. I will still play, but my login will be from England. They may or may not get tired of it. It is their isk to spend. I am sure that there will be others in the future.
