War is serious business

June 5th, 2014

Nothing is better for the economy and industry in Eve Online rather then big and driving conflicts. CCP Foxfour released couple days ago the new war CREST API Endpoint which lets you extract all the juicy war details outside of eve. After various initial attemps and bugfixing I’m done with the whopping pile of 366k wars which took me around 20 hours.

Since I also found a bug in CCP’s owner cleanup process (yes it’s bug reported already) I thought the numbers are quite impressive and worth sharing

Basic Numbers

  • 366,320 total wars
  • 3,741 active wars
    • 1,949 mutual wars
    • 2,600 wars with less then 50 pilots ¬†involved (counting aggressor, defender, allies)
    • 480 wars with more then 500 pilots involved (combined)
    • 1,806 wars declared more then a year ago
  • 773 active wars with at least one side has closed it’s business (corp closed, but war still active, yes that’s the reported bug)
  • Kills (only available since mid-2011)
    • 853,049 Kills
    • 38,309,752,911,445.19 ISK destroyed (38 trillions)
  • first war declared at¬†2003-05-16 09:38:00

Most Deadly Wars (ship kills combined)

Times Aggressor Defender Kills
2013-02-21 > Open RvB – RED Federation RvB – BLUE Republic 173,104
2012-06-06 > 2012-12-01 RvB – BLUE Republic RvB – RED Federation 101,213
2011-05-03 > 2012-06-05 RvB – BLUE Republic RvB – RED Federation 53,667
2012-12-08 > 2013-02-06 RvB – RED Federation RvB – BLUE Republic 46,633
2012-12-01 > 2012-12-05 RvB – BLUE Republic Red Federation 8,273
2013-12-05 > 2014-03-07 The Marmite Collective Brave Collective 6,250
2013-02-06 > Open Red Federation RvB – BLUE Republic 4,775
2013-04-08 > 2013-10-08 The Marmite Collective Test Alliance Please Ignore 3,875
2013-11-26 > Open The Marmite Collective Goonswarm Federation 3,360
2013-05-17 > 2013-05-24 RvB – RED Federation Brave Collective 2,835

 

I guess RvB can be happy to take 7 out of the top 10 slots in this ranking. Especially the number of kills is impressive. But CCP Foxfor told this already on the API / 3rd party presentation on Fanfest 2014

I’ve now started tracking all active wars, continuously filling my database and making my thoughts on the integration into the sites. I guess you can expect a “Wars” tab within the Alliance/Corp section, war history for each alliance and corporation and integration in the live ticker (rss feed)

    Its a shame that it doesent inclue wars before 2011 since it was then the big factionwars also were declerede between big corporations and alliances and also were mutual.
