41 Weeks of World War Bee

The war, at least from my vantage point, has changed up a bit.  Yes, PAPI is still slowly grinding down structures outside of the O-EIMK constellation, racking up some more Keepstar Kills in the last week.

Three Keepstars Down in the old Helms Deep Pocket

But Legacy Coalition, which has pretty much given up on their old space at this point, has decided to start living and working in Delve, Querious, and Period Basis.  They want to rat and mine and manufacture and do all the things you move out to null sec to do in order to build and sustain an empire.  They’ve mostly left 1DQ1-A and the O-EIMK constellation alone.  So the Imperium has begun to spin up some old organizations like Black Ops and the NGSA which specialized in scouting out and dropping on capsuleers going about their space business.

Killing ratters and miners is a thing now and pings for bombers now fill up my scroll back.

Delve Front

As noted above, Delve has been most devoid of large clashes.  Hot drops and scouting are the theme of the week, at least on the Imperium side.  That left the map looking mostly the same.

The metaliminal storm stayed in the O-EIMK constellation, though it moved to the Fake Quireous end of it.  That was still close enough to give most of the constellation a no-cloaking cover, leaking over into T5ZI-S, the PAPI staging system.

Other Theaters

Feythabolis remains under attack by Imperium forces, bent on burning down any of the Legacy Coalition territory they ca.

There is still work to be done there, but the western end of the region has been cleared.

Esoteria remains a battleground, still between The Bastion and its allies and Army of Mango and Evictus.  Evictus may also come under pressure in Feythabolis.

There is also another incursion in the region just to spice things up for both sides.

And then there is Fountain, which honestly I haven’t heard anybody mention… not that I have time to listen to every podcast and stream… where Federation Uprising continues to claim more ihubs.

As long as the region keeps changing hands I’ll keep posting maps, but I am not sure who is really in there for keeps.

My Participation

I have to admit that I didn’t do anything really related to the war this past week.  I logged in and collected my planetary interaction materials… as noted, PAPI isn’t really spending much time in 1DQ1-A or its constellation… and put them up on the market to generate a bit of ISK.

Epithal out for a pickup run

Otherwise I was a complete slacker.  As such my losses for the war remain as follows:

  • Ares interceptor – 17
  • Malediction interceptor – 7
  • Crusader interceptor – 5
  • Atron entosis frigate – 6
  • Rokh battleship – 5
  • Scimitar logi – 4
  • Ferox battle cruiser – 4
  • Drake battle cruiser – 4
  • Purifier stealth bomber – 3
  • Guardian logi – 2
  • Scalpel logi frigate – 2
  • Raven battleship – 1
  • Crucifier ECM frigate – 1
  • Gnosis battlecruiser – 1
  • Bifrost command destroyer – 1
  • Cormorant destroyer – 1
  • Hurricane battle cruiser – 1
  • Sigil entosis industrial – 1
  • Mobile Small Warp Disruptor I – 1

Other Items

CCP began its industry rework plan by seeding blueprints and formulae for new reactions as part of the first April patch on Tuesday.  The industrial chaos era is coming.  In a bit of an ironic twist, CCP released a video about how important industrialists are to the New Eden ecosystem even as they were planning to make every industrialist miserable.

CCP also announced the plans for the CSM16 election with dates and requirements for those looking to run.

And on the player count, the peak concurrent was down a bit this week.  No doubt slack time in the war and the end of the recent in-game event contributed to that… well, that and maybe the nice warm weather some place are getting.  So the weekly peak concurrent run look like this:
