Week 34 of World War Bee was about the same as week 33, with 25 fights and 50 hostile actions. Delve, Catch, and Immensea largely dominated the action.
The link for INN’s cumulative New Eden campaign report is here. Since July 1, the ISK split is 53.64% in favor of the Imperium versus 46.36% for the PAPI coalition, a modest improvement since the beginning of February for the attackers. After hand-calculating the values, all belligerents have lost 136.1 trillion ISK, an increase of 10.2 trillion since the first week of February. Roughly 816,500 ships have been destroyed, an increase of 68,000 since the start of the month. The average ships lost cost 166.7 million ISK. The real world cost of the war is no less than 2,119,000 USD/1,589,000 GBP/1,780,000 EUR.
There were six fights in week 34 that exceeded 20 billion ISK in total losses, excluding the border skirmish battle report of 1DQ1-A/T5ZI-S and the M2-XFE hellcamp. Five fights were strategic victories for the Imperium while one was a strategic victory for PAPI forces.
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
Week 34 kicked off in the North with a fight in Fountain as the Imperium’s Frenchswarm SIG formed to defend a citadel, ultimately chasing off a combined Legacy and LowSechnaya Sholupen gang, killing 23.78 billion ISK for 145.85 million in losses. The M2-XFE hellcamp on Sunday saw the Imperium kill 7.6 billion ISK for just under 1 billion in losses. Monday’s hellcamp had the Imperium lose a Fortizar, representing the bulk of its 22.1 billion ISK in losses for 4 billion in kills. Tuesday, Goons lost an Azbel and a pair of Sotiyos in Western Delve, while the hellcamp saw a draw as each side lost 2.9 billion ISK. Wednesday was shockingly quiet with neither side’s hellcamp losses exceeding 400 million ISK. Thursday, Goons lost a Tatara while the hellcamp killed 2.6 billion ISK for 237.6 million in losses. Friday’s hellcamp saw PAPI forces form up hard with supercarriers to kill an expensive Sotiyo, with the Imperium ultimately losing 187.7 billion ISK for 25 billion in kills. Saturday, the hellcamp killed 38.2 billion ISK for 103.8 million as a Pandemic Horde Nyx paid the iron price for its freedom.
THE EASTERN THEATER
Action in the East began Monday with The Initiative losing a supercarrier while attacking a Sotiyo in Catch, ultimately losing 29 billion ISK for nearly 300 million in kills. Tuesday, Legacy forces lost a pair of Fortizars in Immensea.

THE SOUTHERN THEATER
The week began Sunday in the South with a big scrap in the Imperium’s home 1DQ1-A constellation, with Goons ultimately taking the worst of the fight, losing 17.9 billion ISK for 13.3 billion in kills.

Monday, Goon forces killed an Azbel that PAPI forces deposited in the Imperium home constellation. The fight was pretty rough as the Imperium killed 34.4 billion ISK for 28 billion in losses. Goons later caught a massively expensive jump freighter taking the regional gate into Period Basis, killing 32.3 billion ISK. The border skirmish battle report had the Imperium lose 28.6 billion ISK for 10.2 billion in kills, the bulk of Goon losses down to a jump freighter getting caught on the gate.
