This image was posted on Twitter by @CCPQuant on the 16th of Feb. (Ignore the S/M/L – the sizing labelling is wrong.)
It shows a count of the Hull-Reinforced Structures in the game. Can you guess when Upwell 2.0 was released?
There was a level of humour from @CCP_Fozzie and amongst the various comments on Twitter and Reddit, so the destruction is pleasing some.
I assume most of these are Offline structures, which have suddenly become much easier to destroy now. An interesting reflection of the huge impact CCP’s tweaks and balancing can have as they change the ground rules. I wonder what it will mean in the long run for structures in game – particularly for casual players.
You can watch roughly how this is unfolding on zkillboard:
Citadel Group stats
Citadel Group Losses
(Last year average monthly losses – 269. Lost so far this month 404.)
Engineering Complex Group Stats
Engineering Complex Group Losses
(Last year average monthly losses – 227. Lost so far this month 305.)
Refinery Group Stats
Refinery Group Losses
(Last three months average monthly losses – 166. Lost so far this month 132.)
I will try to remember to revisit these after the month has finished.
