Week 35 of World War Bee was busier than week 34, with 20 fights and 69 hostile actions. Delve and the East largely dominated the headlines for the week.

There were three battles in week 35 that exceeded 20 billion ISK in total losses, excluding the M2-XFE Hellcamp of PAPI supercapitals and the 1DQ1-A/T5ZI-S border skirmish battle report. Two battles were strategic wins for the Imperium, while one was a 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
The week began in the North with the hell camp, where the Imperium killed 2.3 billion ISK for 772 million in losses. Monday, PAPI killed an Imperium Fortizar in western Delve, while the hellcamp lost a small citadel for 3.9 billion in Imperium losses despite killing 1.9 billion ISK. Tuesday, the hellcamp heated up a bit again as the Imperium killed 4.2 billion ISK for 3.3 billion in losses. Wednesday, the Imperium lost a pair of Sotiyos, while the hellcamp popped off in a big way, with the Imperium losing 276.6 billion ISK (largely represented by two Vendettas) for 162.1 billion in kills.
Thursday, total losses were under 1.4 billion ISK – a quiet day after the previous day’s capital slugfest. Friday, the Imperium lost a Sotiyo while the hellcamp showed the Imperium losing 3.6 billion ISK for 159.1 million in kills. Saturday, Goons lost another Sotiyo while the hellcamp had a Nyx get picked off, ultimately losing 40.8 billion ISK for 4.2 billion in kills. One of the largest pieces of news for the week was the Imperium ending their nine week hellcamp in M2-XFE as PAPI forces were finally able to lock down the iHub for long enough to online some system-wide cyno jammers.
THE EASTERN THEATER
The week began in the East with Brave losing a Fortizar in Catch. Monday, The Initiative ganked some TEST capitals moving around in Catch, killing 12.3 billion ISK while TEST lost a pair of Fortizars and PAPI lost a narrow fight in Brave’s capital staging system of GE-8JV, losing 16.4 billion ISK for 15.4 billion in kills. Tuesday, Brave lost an Athanor in Catch while Legacy lost a Fortizar in Immensea. Wednesday, Legacy lost a Tatara in Catch as well as a faction Fortizar in Catch. Thursday, Brave lost a Ragnarok in Esoteria. Friday, Legacy lost a pair of Tataras, an Azbel, a faction Fortizar, and a Sotiyo while TEST lost a Fortizar and Pandemic Horde lost a Nyx. Saturday, to close out the week, TEST lost a Fortizar in Catch.
THE SOUTHERN THEATER
Sunday in the South, the week began with Imperium forces ganking some capitals gating into Period Basis, killing 9.5 billion ISK for less than 900 million in losses. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 35.8 billion ISK for 27.4 billion in losses. Monday, Imperium irregulars in Southeastern Delve killed 10.5 billion ISK for 8.7 billion in losses; while their compadres in Southern Delve fought to a standstill, losing 3.4 billion ISK for 3.6 billion in kills.

Tuesday, the PAPI structure bashes kicked off in earnest for the week, as they killed a faction Fortizar, a Fortizar, two Tataras, and two Sotiyos. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium lost 23.1 billion ISK for 10.8 billion in kills.
Wednesday, the Imperium lost three separate Tataras, an Azbel, a Fortizar, and a Sotiyo, while TEST lost an Azbel.
