I nearly doubled my net worth from that haul, and invested most of it in new warships for my hangar - a stealth bomber, a bumping Machariel, a Falcon. Then I went looking for another target.
This fast growing mining corporation located 2 jumps from Jita seemed like a likely target. I had Spy Alt put in an application and she was accepted, once again, no questions asked.
Once in, I made a quick assessment, and found that there wasn’t really anything laying around that I could steal. The alliance did have a wormhole system, so I put a covops alt in there, then dropped a wardec on them. At about the same time, they were also wardecced, coincidentally, by my friends in CODE.
Under wardec, all of the older, more experienced members of the corporation, including the CEO, absconded to their wormhole system, leaving the newbies to fend for themselves in the heart of CODE. territory, without so much as a word of advice.
So, keeping an eye on their wormhole with my covops alt, I began my harvest of noobs.
The first to die was Ben Dankz in his Venture. Pilot YIN DRAGON, hearing in corp chat that I was in system, eagerly began traveling back, from wherever he was, to face me. So I waited around for him. Sadly, for him, his Navy Crucifier was no match for my Daredevil. The fight was short, the outcome predictable. Then I killed a Prospect and left system.
An hour later, the same guy with the Prospect announced that he had found a wormhole and was mining in it. Spy Alt used corp bookmarks to show the location of the hole to Syeed, who jumped in and killed the guy in his Mackinaw - my first kill in a stealth bomber.
The next day I killed a Rifter, and a Venture, then noticed the Venture guy talking smack in corp chat about how he was going to kill me with his Naga.

So I hunted him down and found him in another Venture. Rather than immediately kill him, I pretended to chase him around, hoping he'd go get his Naga.

I ended up followed him to Jita, where he reshipped to a Moa. I engaged him on the Perimeter/Jita gate with my Daredevil and killed him again. A Drake joined the fight and I killed that too.

At this point, I felt like I had put enough of a hurting on the newbies, so I hopped in a Stratios and quietly moved into their wormhole. Meanwhile CODE. continued to ravage their highsec players and structures.
The action slowed down a great deal in the hole. All the ROOKIE guys spent most of their time docked up in their citadels. Occasionally they would warp back and forth between citadels - god knows what they were doing - but that was about all.
I did kill a random Gnosis and a random Venture, that had wandered into the hole, but that was about it. At some point they apparently put two and two together and booted Spy Alt.
Then finally, after days of waiting, ROOKIE CEO safira jomita finally undocked in a Tayra and warped to a POCO. I found her there and made the kill. I was content. I let the war end.
Planning for the future
At this point, December was fast approaching. And in December, it was being said, CCP planned to roll out another nerf to wardecs. One which would require that I have an anchored structure in space in order to declare war on someone.
Wardecs were a powerful tool in my arsenal and I did not intend to give that up. However, the old wallet was still pretty empty, and buying an upwell structure would have taken most of my remaining isk.
So I got to thinking. What if I just steal one? Would that be possible?
