World War Bee: Week 46

2021-05-24

Week 46 of World War Bee was on par with the sedate Week 45, with 20 total hostile actions reported. Delve and its environs were home to most of the action, although new areas of the Galaxy began to see action from the war.

[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 were four battles in week 46 that exceeded 20 billion ISK in cumulative, outside of the 1DQ1-A/T5ZI-S border skirmish battle report. All four were strategic victories for the Imperium, despite two of the fights being relatively costly for the defenders.

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

As in some previous weeks, the Northern theater was relatively quiet.

THE EASTERN THEATER

In the East, the Initiative lost a Fortizar and Brave lost a Sotiyo.

THE SOUTHERN THEATER

Sunday, Goons lost a Fortizar, while the border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 21.7 billion ISK for 15.5 billion in losses. Monday’s border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 6.8 billion ISK for 8.8 billion in losses. Tuesday, the Imperium saw a pair of major attempts in 3-DMQT, the first costing the Imperium a super and some FAXes, with the Imperium killing 144.4 billion ISK for 274.1 billion in losses. The second fight cost the Imperium 124.6 billion ISK for 47.7 billion in kills, while the border skirmish battle report was a draw at 10.3 billion ISK each. Wednesday, the border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 14.1 billion ISK for 8.4 billion in losses. Thursday’s skirmish showed the Imperium killed 22.2 billion ISK for 20.7 billion in losses. Friday, Goons lost a pair of Fortizars, while the border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 9.5 billion ISK for 32 billion in losses. Saturday, the Imperium beat back another attempt at 3-DMQT, killing 139.8 billion ISK for 179.1 billion in losses covered on INN elsewhere. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 29.6 billion ISK for 20.5 billion in losses.

ELSEWHERE IN NEW EDEN

The week got kicked off elsewhere with Russian Imperium forces fighting Horde in the Kalevala Expanse, killing 25.3 billion ISK for 1.4 billion in losses. PAPI-aligned forces lost a Tatara in Feythabolis. Later in the week, PAPI forces lost a Hel, Red Alliance lost an Azbel, and Horde lost a Vendetta.

    Just a little note to mention that Winter Coalition have made a move against VOLTA and Toilet Paper people in Pure Blind. Peak donut is almost upon us.

    This is also the 5th week of “the siege” and the sov map looks remarkably similar now to when “the siege” started. The TAPI townhall was conducted by Progodlegend and was gripping as ever. Progodlegend was very clear in stating the intention of PAPI to follow The Imperium where ever they go. He was also very confident about winning. You have to listen to the whole thing to believe it to be honest.

      Let me guess: “We’re going to… um… ehrm… eh… hypothetically… kick Goons out of… uh… eh… what’s-it-called… Delve… if we can, that is, and… uhm… uh… uh…”

      All mumbled with nervous angst while tugging on his stringy beard and staring off into the corner of the room rather than into the webcam.

      Is that about right?

        I would hate to lie so I would urge anyone interested in the truth to listen for themselves. Of course PAPI members have been told repeatedly not to read INN so they will just have to trust what their leaders say.

      So I guess it’s FRT vs. Freemen of the North 2: Electric Boogaloo. FRT won’t be happy until they basically conquer and own all of the north if people there aren’t paying rent to them from the looks of it.

        I think that this is still a developing situation. But the posture taken by Frat is one of them wanting to deal with what they consider a problem. Now how Frat approach this is probably going to be dependent on how annoying VOLTA/TP et al are. This may just be Frat signalling that they “can” if provoked enough. I wonder if the justification for this action by Frat is as strong as the one for World War Bee?

          Volta are tough as nails though. They punch well above their weight. I remember back when I was in Fountain Core we fought a major battle with them and even though we won, they were well skilled and flew very expensive and powerful ships and the average pilot’s skill level was very high. I dunno so much about toilet paper. But Volta are up there with some of the better skilled pilots in Eve at pvp. In contrast, FRT’s average line members are about as bad as it gets when we face them down in Delve’s battles. Nextorian is one of the worst FC’s in the game.

          Volta will wipe the floor with FRT and might only really be defeated if WinterCo batphone all their mates.

            Does seem like VOLTA are the “elite PvP’ers” there. Considering how Toilet Paper and friends of the Freemen of the North were doing guerilla attacks against FRT and having some success with it despite being massively blobbed, they at the very least earned FRT’s respect before they had to concede defeat.

            I really don’t put much stock in whatever “skill” FRT does have, they have a reputation for being a botting alliance first and foremost and that reputation is stuck with me now. So it’s no surprise they gotta batpone for PanFam’s help if even their blobbing actions don’t scare off their opposition.

            Yeah, We Form Volta are one of those scary Russian groups who previously spent a lot of their time in Thera, ready to dunk the universe with their Strategic Cruiser fleets. WinterCo have the numbers of course, but Volta’s FC’s are some of the better ones in the game and previously have had a good relationship with Tuskers, who are often regarded as galaxy champions in the Alliance Tournaments.

            I don’t think FRT realise quite what they’re in for and have already welped multiple fleets against Volta.
