Technical issues with a particular research database caused a delay with the publishing of the MERs from November and December 2021. The problem was recently resolved however and we’re pleased we can finally bring you these much anticipated reports. Thank you for your patience!
As always, the raw data can be downloaded by clicking on this link.
Some ppl have such huge stockpiles of materials to burn through, that maybe they can afford to take a mining break. Perhaps some were tired from overwork leading up to / anticipating the mining changes.
Good evening capsuleers! As a few of you have pointed out, there are potentially some inaccuracies with the “Mining value by region” data for the December MER. We’ll look to rectify this ASAP and publish any updated values.
This is true, I know 3 people who already stopped playing and have given me their stuff. I hate Eve has gone this way, after all that I have invested in real life money in this game. I hate to start looking for something else to play.
Swift, just remember that inaccuracies are present on every MER. Days missing. Whole regions missing. And that’s without getting into the lack of any numbers presented from Anoikis or Poch.
You guys literally have all of the data. The data is, after all, completely generated within your computer systems. I’m sure you know plenty of people who’ve built analytic tools for 3rd-party use. Please ask CCP to throw them some real-world cash and get them to build a full suite of analytics that doesn’t just capture everything, but runs automatically at DT on the first of every month, and produces reports that are clear, informative, and useful. You know it can be done. If you want people to have any faith in, or use for, the MER, please get us one we can rely on.
Would you be able to provide data/graphs specific to the faction/pirate ships (frigates to battleships) to see how many of them were built from BPC before and after the industry change?
And versus how many of them are bought pre-built directly from the LP stores, before and after the industry change.
I feel like your changes killed the BPCs value as it generaly cost way more to build them than to buy them built on the market. Meaning, if I was to buy a BPC in contracts, I would actually need to ask the seller to give me money in order to build the ships at reasonable price. What is the point of ratting for the Mordu in low-sec now?
