YZ9-F6, Delve – After 4 previous attempts to anchor Keepstars in NPC Delve have failed, the PAPI coalition has onlined their new staging Keepstar in YZ9-F6 with little to no contest from the Imperium. TEST anchored a sphere of bubbles around the Keepstar, 149 to be specific. This is important to note because once that number reaches 150, CCP has been known to nuke the anchorables on the grid.
The Imperium formed up five different fleets from Ravens to Feroxs and headed into the system. According to reports from the Imperium, the pilots were having difficulty loading the grid and quite a few of them were deceased before even getting on-field. However, PAPI forces also had to warp into the grid and reportedly experienced no issues.
This Keepstar anchoring brings a close to this chapter of World War Bee 2 and also brings with it a final tally of how much was actually lost on both sides of the conflict. This campaign battle report shows only the last 2ish weeks of Keepstar fights and is quite the wild ride. Some notable statistics here are:
- 968 Dreadnaughts
- 5,240 Battleships
- 16 Titans*
- 32 Supercarriers*
- 2,820 Combat Battlecruisers
- 7,858 Capsules
- Total loss of 8.4 TRILLION ISK
(A fair amount of these losses came from fights outside of the Keepstar timers but are included for consistency of numbers of lost ships)
- 4 Keepstars (worth about 800 billion total)
- 235 Dreadnaughts
- 305 Battleships
- 0 Titans
- 2 Supercarriers
- 896 Combat Battlecruisers
- 9,351 Capsules
- Total loss of 2.9 TRILLION ISK
* These losses were not incurred during Keepstar fights.
Please forgive the fact that this article is not as in-depth as previous articles. Regrettably, nothing except for the Keepstar onlining really happened today. Now, PAPI will stage from the new Keepstar, appropriately named “Bubblon 5” as they press further into Delve to attack the region. Now, no one can say that the invasion hasn’t begun.
