Currently, remote repping a suspect or a war target shot by a wardeccer results in being concorded. (If there is a megathread that’s alive for this let me know)
This doesn’t make sense for lore, for one.
The rationale for this is it’s “frustrating” to only be able to shoot neutral logi ships after they rep. Here’s the thing, shooting war targets and suspects should never be risk free. You shouldn’t know what you’re engaging, ever. You could go to a FFA, then the one of the 4 people there are alts of one person. You can go in a plex with a lone T1 cruiser, then get hotdropped by 10 phantasms. You can shoot a lone AFK guy at a gate, who would stop being AFK and scram you as well as use a huge buffer tank to kill you with gateguns.
But if I see a highsec suspect, I get a ship slightly bigger than his, then I shoot him. Hell dawn shoots a war target, confident because that war target’s corpmates aren’t in local. I know a corp called the New Eden Police Force, who could only save gank targets not war targets with their remote reps. This doesn’t give any possibility for escalations.
