Week 54 of World War Bee was up slightly from week 53, with 15 total hostile actions reported, putting the week just above some of the absolute lows. Delve and its environs were home to most of the action.
[Editor’s Note: As the war has reached its anniversary, INN’s tracker is now split between the July 2020 to June 2021 events and July 2021 onwards. The first year’s data remains broken, but the author is tentatively hopeful the Year 2 data will calculate moving forward.]
There was one battle in week 54 that exceeded 20 billion ISK in cumulative losses, outside of the 1DQ1-A/T5ZI-S border skirmish battle report. It was a brawl in Fountain between a mess of alliances, both PAPI-aligned and third-party.
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
Sunday in the North was interesting, as Legacy lost a pair of Hels, one in Fountain, the other in Aridia. The biggest fight of the week was Wednesday in J5A-IX, as nearly a thousand players united to fight over the border system between Cloud Ring and Fountain headlined by third-party alliances assailing a mostly-PAPI force. All told, the parties involved lost 159.2 billion ISK.
THE EASTERN THEATER
The East was once again relatively quiet, with modest ganks of battleships, capitals, and Rorquals.
THE SOUTHERN THEATER
Sunday, the border skirmish battle report between 1DQ1-A and T5ZI-S showed that the Imperium killed 8.1 billion ISK for 7.4 billion in losses. Monday, the border skirmish battle report had the Imperium killing 3.4 billion ISK for 5.5 billion in losses. Tuesday’s border skirmish battle report was meatier, as the Imperium killed 16.6 billion ISK for 11.4 billion in losses. Wednesday extended the expensive day for PAPI (given the fight in the North) with the border skirmish battle report showing the Imperium killed 21.9 billion ISK for 17.4 billion in losses. Thursday, Imperium forces beat up a Legacy Cerberus gang with Feroxes, killing 10.1 billion ISK for 234 million in losses. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 9.5 billion ISK for 11.5 billion in losses. Friday’s border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 12.6 billion ISK for 7.7 billion in losses. Saturday, the Imperium blunted another attempt in 3-DMQT, killing 6.7 billion ISK for 3.7 billion in losses. The week-ending border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 9 billion ISK for 10.4 billion in losses.
