...By which I mean, of course, an opportunity for them to ask other people to wardec me.
...Or to make empty threats about wardeccing me in the future.
...Or to make empty threats about hiring others to wardec me in the future.
Finally, Experimental Fun Times Corp received its first wardec. The offending corporation, serpintine security, belongs to one brichardi. You might recall some weeks earlier brichardi attempted to engage me in a 1v1 duel, but after she invoked the Test of Wisdom, she failed (on the Amazon River question).
After spending 50 million isk to declare war, brichardi began smack-talking in local. After war is declared, there is a 24-hour period before fighting may legally begin.
I took a few minutes to educate brichardi about the dangers of wardeccing the Saviour of Highsec, but to no avail. She also refused my offer of accepting her surrender.
I had no choice but to teach brichardi a lesson by winning the war. I returned to station to launch "Operation Green Killboard".
Within moments, and for a price of just under 1.6 million isk, Experimental Fun Times Corp dissolved and immediately rose like a phoenix from its ashes. Everything was the same, except there was no more wardec.
With the war having been concluded, I again offered brichardi the chance to surrender.
brichardi was not amused. She posted the automatic EVEmail sent out when a wardecced corp dissolves, in which Concord sarcastically suggested that Experimental Fun Times Corp had surrendered. (Plainly not the case, since I was still in Experimental Fun Times Corp!)
Those unfamiliar with game mechanics may wonder why these kinds of corporate shenanigans are allowed, since they render wardecs useless. Once upon a time, they were not allowed. But the highsec miners complained that wardecs were making highsec less safe. The GMs changed to rules to accommodate the miners. This includes dissolving and reforming the exact same corporation:
GM Homonoia:Thus, brichardi spent 50 million isk on a wardec that was reversed by a 1.6 million isk corp reformation. Wars against corps used to cost 2 million isk, but again, highsec miners complained about wardecs making highsec less safe, and CCP accommodated them. Just as with Concord protection in the highsec ice fields, the New Order has turned the carebears' own weapons against them!
"Corp hopping: This is never an exploit with one exception; you are not allowed to join a corporation that is at war while you are in space and in the same system as a war target of that corporation."
"....Not an exploit. Dis banding and reforming a corp takes quite a bit of effort (if it is not a lot of effort then I suggest you wardec corporations that are worth it)."
Now that Experimental Fun Times Corp has won its first war, it's time for an official war report:
May the New Order continue to march from victory to victory!
