World War Bee: Week 39

2021-04-05

Week 39 of World War Bee was a much more sedate period, after the frenzy of week 38, with 12 reported fights and 62 total hostile actions. Delve and other parts of New Eden were the major newsmakers.

There were four battles in week 39 that exceeded 20 billion ISK in total losses, excluding the 1DQ1-A/T5ZI-S border skirmish battle report; three of which were strategic victories for the Imperium and one was a strategic draw. The Imperium also lost 6 Keepstars over the course of the week.

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 was relatively quiet during week 39, with Northern Coalition losing a Nyx in central Fountain and Goons losing a Fortizar.

THE EASTERN THEATER

The Eastern theater was also quite sedate versus the last few weeks. Sunday, Legacy lost a Sotiyo. Monday, Brave lost a Sotiyo. Tuesday, Legacy lost an X-Large SMA. Wednesday, Brave lost a Sotiyo. Thursday, Legacy forces got hot dropped in a small move op, with Imperium-aligned forces destroying 80.6 billion ISK for 8.6 billion in losses. Friday, Brave lost another Sotiyo. Saturday, Brave lost a Tatara.

      Who in PAPI can be trusted to keep their word? Already there is a trail of broken promises from this war alone. Others will also fall as and when they are no longer convenient to maintain.

      Then of course there is the matter of The Imperium having spent 5 years building after The Casino War knowing that PAPI/BoB would come again. The Imperium did not spend all this time doing nothing and The Mittani has made it very clear that we are more than happy to put it all on the board in 1DQ.
