Week 49 of World War Bee picked up again from the sluggish week 48, with 28 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 five battles in week 49 that exceeded 20 billion ISK in cumulative losses, outside of the 1DQ1-A/T5ZI-S border skirmish battle report. All six strategic victories for the Imperium, with one being a third-party dread bomb of a Fraternity Komodo.
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
While the North is generally slow, Horde did lose a Hel in Fountain this past week.
THE EASTERN THEATER
THE SOUTHERN THEATER
Sunday in the South saw PAPI forces make another attempt at 3-DMQT, turned back after the Imperium killed 9.7 billion ISK for 2.6 billion in losses. The border skirmish battle report between 1DQ1-A and T5ZI-S showed the Imperium killed 18 billion ISK for 19.8 billion in losses. Monday, a group of PAPI caps managed to die to diamond rats in Querious, ultimately losing 18.9 billion ISK to the NPCs. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 16.4 billion ISK for 21 billion in losses. Tuesday, PAPI forces made several attempts at 3-DMQT and elsewhere, the first time, they lost 43.3 billion ISK for 3.8 billion in kills. A few hours later, they lost 30.2 billion ISK for 18.1 billion in kills. PAPI closed out the day losing 6.5 billion ISK for 2.6 billion in kills in 3-DMQT again. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 11.6 billion ISK for 6.3 billion in losses.
Wednesday, the Imperium claimed victory in a couple of brief Delve skirmishes, the total battle report showed the Imperium killed 32 billion ISK for 17.3 billion in losses. Later in the day, Brave lost a Hel in Querious and TEST lost an Azbel in Period Basis. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 7.5 billion ISK for 14.1 billion in losses. Thursday, PAPI forces tried again for 3-DMQT with a more even battle report, each side losing about 4 billion ISK. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 5 billion ISK for 6.1 billion in losses. Friday, PAPI forces were turned back in 3-DMQT again, losing 10.4 billion ISK for 5.9 billion in kills. Goons and TEST each lost a Fortizar. The border skirmish battle report saw the Imperium killed 11.1 billion ISK for 10.4 billion in losses. Saturday, the Imperium caught some Legacy capitals in the open, ratting in Querious, killing 20.9 billion ISK for 6.4 billion in losses. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 6.8 billion ISK for 8.5 billion in losses.
ELSEWHERE IN NEW EDEN
Elsewhere in New Eden, Bastion lost a Fortizar in Feythabolis, Brave lost a Hel, and Panfam forces lost a Nyx. Of particular note was a dreadbomb largely executed by Snuffed Out who caught a Fraternity Komodo in Vale of the Silent, gladly trading some dreadnoughts for the faction titan killmail. In all, both sides lost 331.4 billion ISK, overwhelmingly due to the ultra-rare titan.
