2021-08-30

Week 60 was down after week 59’s still busy action. INN tracked 25 hostile actions, a more normal week in line with previous months. Delve was largely home to the action, but nearly all of the action was structure bashes across the Imperium home regions, as they continued to scour their space of hostile citadels.

[Editor’s Note: As the war has reached its anniversary, INN’s tracker is now split between the July 2020 to June 2021 events and July 2021 onwards. The first year’s data remains broken, but the author is tentatively hopeful the Year 2 data will calculate moving forward.]

There was one fight in week 60 that exceeded 20 billion ISK in cumulative losses, a brawl in Vale of the Silent between Snuffed Out and Fraternity with a cameo appearance by Imperium forces in Kikimoras.

The three major theaters are the North (Fountain and the border with Aridia and Cloud Ring as well as western Delve), the South (the rest of Delve, Querious, and Period Basis), and the East (Paragon Soul, Catch, Stain, Immensea, and Esoteria).

THE NORTHERN THEATER

The North saw the Initiative burn down their own Y-2ANO Fortizar and Horde lost their Fortizar in the Sakht system of Aridia.

THE EASTERN THEATER

The East was relatively quiet, although Brave eventually lost their PZMA-E Keepstar in Impass.

THE SOUTHERN THEATER

Sunday, anti-Imperium forces lost two Azbels and then three Fortizars. Monday, Brave and TEST each lost a Fortizar. Tuesday, Warped Intentions lost three Fortizars in Period Basis; TEST lost a Keepstar; Warped Intentions lost a Tatara, and Goons lost a Hel. Wednesday, Brave lost an Athanor and Warped Intentions lost a pair of Fortizars. Thursday, TEST lost a Fortizar. Saturday, the Imperium killed a hostile supercarrier.

ELSEWHERE IN NEW EDEN

Severance lost a Hel while Fraternity lost a Hel and a Nyx. Earlier in the week, Snuffed Out continued to brawl with Fraternity in Vale of the Silent. Fraternity ended up dropping titans on the Snuffed Out dreadnoughts. The Imperium appeared with a Kikimora fleet that ended up welping, the final battle report showed that the attackers lost 258.5 billion ISK (with the Imperium losing another 12.9 billion ISK) while killing 125.9 billion ISK.

    So can anyone understand the logic behind burning your own Citadel instead of simply unanchoring and moving it.

      Wondering that myself.

      I believe the usual reason is that you have an indication your enemies plan to kill it and thus deny them the pleasure of doing so while giving your own people the content instead in the form of fleets and a killmail.

        Sounds understandable enough though maybe they just did it being like “Ahh fuck it, we’ve got a order for half a dozen new ones and its getting rusty might as well purge it”

      You control the time of death, you usually get to strip all the fittings and usually get to loot the wreck.

      It looked suspicious

      If you’re referring to “our” citadel in Y-2 – it was purchased from FEDUP for a fraction of its value because we knew it had been used as a staging citadel by quite a few alliances.
      Over 200B ISK of ships and other loot dropped, so that’ll pay for quite a few athanors, thanks (BRAVE already generously donated the cores back in March)

    I see you’re just listing random super losses now. Safe to say the war is over. If you’re going to include FRAT vs Snuff in the war then at least list the Sunff / NC ally nyx loss

      When your enemy losses shit it doesn’t matter who they lose it too, it’s lost either way, and our losses were mentioned in the form of the the kiki fleet.
