World War Bee: Week 47

2021-05-31

Week 47 of World War Bee was on par with the sedate Week 46, with 18 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.

There were four battles in week 47 that exceeded 20 billion ISK in cumulative, outside of the 1DQ1-A/T5ZI-S border skirmish battle report. Three were strategic victories for the Imperium, despite one of the fights being relatively costly for the defenders and the fourth being a third-party fight with Fraternity.

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 Northern theater was relatively sedate for another week, with only low-grade brush battles.

THE EASTERN THEATER

Sunday began the week in the East with The Initiative and others getting into a brawl with Army of Mangoes in Esoteria, ultimately killing 29.9 billion ISK for 8.8 billion in losses. Init later lost a staging Azbel in Curse while AOM lost a Fortizar in Esoteria.

THE SOUTHERN THEATER

Sunday in the South, Goons lost a pair of Fortizars, while the border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 13 billion ISK for 9 billion in losses. Monday, the border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 12.2 billion ISK for 24.4 billion in losses. Tuesday, the Imperium saw off a pair of attempts on 3-DMQT, the first had them killing 52.6 billion ISK for 54.7 billion in losses. The second fight was far more brutal as PAPI forces fed a fleet of battleships into Imperium fighters while their blaster Harpies (or Blarpies) were also shredded by Imperium space superiority fighters. The final battle report showed the Imperium killed 113.3 billion ISK for 30 billion in losses. TEST forces also lost a Hel in Querious. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 11.2 billion ISK for 15.9 billion in losses. Wednesday, the border skirmish showed the Imperium killed 18.7 billion ISK for 7 billion in losses. Thursday, Goons bombed PAPI forces on their way home from sieging some structures in the East, ultimately destroying 12.1 billion ISK. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 13.4 billion ISK for 6.9 billion in losses. Friday, the battle report had the Imperium killing 16 billion ISK for 9.1 billion in losses. Saturday, the week closed with the Imperium killing 14.8 billion ISK for 12.5 billion in losses.

ELSEWHERE IN NEW EDEN

Across New Eden, PAPI forces lost a Nyx in Insmother and Fraternity got into a brawl with Brotherhood of Spacers in Branch, the two sides trading body blows with the 3rd party group winning the BR despite being outnumbered. Total losses exceeded 112 billion ISK.

    I can’t wait to hear the total losses in isk at the end of this war. Cause we gotta be up to at least 50 trillion isk destroyed at this point in ships alone right?

      Whatever the butcher’s bill will be at the end, it’s going to be huge. I wonder if it’ll hit over a hundred trillion ISK.

        “I wonder if it’ll hit over a hundred trillion ISK.”

    Doesn’t really matters how much the cost would be, this war has changed Eve so significant which is equal to when BoB was fallen down.

      There are echoes of it hitting EE already. if those echoes are anything to go by one of 2 outcomes will occur. Papi will fall to complete chaos allowing many small coalitions to take chunks, or Imperium holds on to rally against a blue donut. Neither outcome is ideal because the first one can lead to extreme leaders who shouldn’t be in charge, like Likander from EE, and the second can end with a massive burnout the likes that has never been seen before.

    A little note to add that the Brave Interim SotA was put out by Dunk Dinkle. In it he repeats that the reason for the war is that The Imperium was too powerful. This ignores the fact that The Imperium were asked by Legacy to attack PanFam. Classy?

    Meanwhile in the north Frat are now making moves on Pure Blind. They have said that this is only to deal with the Volta/TP problem that they have. In the east we have FIRE trying to clear out former valued ally IGC.

    This is now the 6th week of the “siege” by PAPI and “technically” no progress has been made on the final constellation owned by The Imperium. It is becoming more and more apparent that despite a year of the self proclaimed best FC team in the game ever there is still no plan for attacking 1DQ other than hope.

      They are trying to pivot the war goal to just being diminishing the Imperium.

    This war is like being wardecced by a firm of accountants. PAPI is soo fukking boring. In the UK we had a prime Minister John Major who literally ran away from a circus family to become an accountant. It feels like he’s in charge on the PAPI side. In RTS games about a decade and a half ago they decided turtling every game was booring as fukk and they tried to change the game design to avoid turtling being the optimal strategy. Someone should pass this on to CCP. What the fuck is the point of a 3 to 1 advantage if you can’t gloriously massacre the enemy? I think PAPI’s strategy is to wait for everyone to fall asleep then debate about striking? Council of Wardens? Council of Nytol more like.
