IVY Defense Status
Ivy League uses the 'Defence Condition' system of readiness. Standard definitions are:
This is the condition used to designate normal peace-time operations for the alliance.
Intel suggests a high probability of war. Prepare PvP ships and move jump-clones as appropriate.
War Preparations or Active Faildec
War has been declared and is in the 24 hour warm-up period or an active war has been deemed a Faildec. For new wars, final preparations should be made, missions completed or declined, jump-clones and PvP ships prepared. Wartime Standard Operating Procedures do not apply, but caution should be used.
Non-Significant War in Progress
One or more wars from small groups are in progress. Significant military actions by the hostile forces are unlikely, however you can be fired upon anywhere in space, so caution is strongly suggested at all times, especially around HQ and trade hubs. Wartime Standard Operating Procedures are in effect.
Significant War in Progress
A significant War is live and in-progress, which is likely to involve military action anywhere in EVE. You can be fired upon anywhere in space. Wartime Standard Operating Procedures are in effect.
