The war cost is then multiplied by the number of non-mututal active wars the Corporation or Alliance has declared on them. Example: If a corporation you are declaring war on already has 3 wars declared on it, your war will cost 4 x 2 million pr. week.
  • Billing and cancellation for wars that have not been paid for are now handled correctly.
  • War System now performs closer checks on all conflicts that a corporation or alliance may be involved in. This will prevent cancellation of conflicts between 2 corporations or alliances with overlapping recipients (Corp1 is at war with Corp2 and Corp3, Corp2 is at war with Corp1 and Corp4.
