A War Declaration Shield (DecShield or Dec Shield), is a game mechanic that the University uses to discourage casual War Declarations by making them more expensive to the potential aggressor.

Basics

The cost to the declaring corporation or alliance is based both on the number of wars that they currently have in process and the number of wars the target corporation or alliance have, as this equation from the Evelopedia shows:

cost = B * (N+1) * (W+1)

Where B is the base price, N is the number of wars the agressor entity has, and W is the number of wars the target entity has. As you can see, these are multiplicitive factors. As the target entity, you cannot influence B or N, but you can increase W by having 'friendly' corporations declare wars on you.

This is done by creating a series of 'shell corporations' with alts, then having them declare war against you, thereby upping the cost. Note that it is very likely an exploit and/or breach of the EULA to use trial accounts for this purpose, and as such E-UNI utilizes alts on active accounts of members and alumni, which are checked daily for their status.
