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).
