Week 38 of World War Bee was chock full of structure bashes, much busier than week 37, with nine or so reported fights and 95 total hostile actions, the highest single week in INN records of the war. The South and the East were far and away the busiest regions of the war, as structure bashes traded back and forth.
[Editor’s Note: The link for INN’s cumulative battle tracker is here. INN has now hit database issues with Fleetcom.space’s tracker and will attempt to report monthly on total losses.]
There was one reported battle that exceeded 20 billion ISK in cumulative losses, excluding the 1DQ1-A/T5ZI-S border skirmish battle report; the battle was a strategic win for PAPI forces. The Imperium lost five Keepstars this week in Delve. Of additional note, Fraternity forces got together to sacrifice a Ragnarok titan in commemoration of a beloved alliance member and Brave lost their final iHub in Catch.
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)
