Monthly Economic Report - October 2018


(CCP Falcon) #1

The Monthly Economic Report for October 2018 is now ready!

The raw data, including the killmail dump, can be found here (26.4MB)

For deeper understanding of the indices used in the report, please have a look at the following explanations.

Mineral Price Index (MPI)
The Mineral Price Index (MPI) shows the price changes in all eight minerals used to produce ships and other items in EVE. The weight of each mineral in the index changes each month is based on the relative trade values of the previous month.

Primary Producer Price Index (PPPI)
The Primary Producer Price Index consists of manufacturing items used for the production of other manufacturing items at the secondary stage. Manufacturing items used for the production of final consumer goods are excluded. The index includes such item groups as ore, moon materials, planetary commodities, sleeper relics, and items used in invention.

Secondary Producer Price Index (SPPI)
The Secondary Producer Price Index contains production materials and other production items that are used in the manufacturing of consumer goods, i.e. goods included in the Consumer Price Index.

Consumer Price Index (CPI)
The Consumer Price Index measures the overall price changes of consumer products. This is not limited to consumables such as fuel, ammunition or PLEX, but also includes assets such as ships, modules, implants and starbase structures. In summary, anything that is not primarily used to produce other goods is included in the index, which contains over 4000 individual items.

What’s going on? The graphs for September and October are identical.

So, Delve has increased its overall % total of income from NPC bounties and Mining from:

15% (15.7T/105T)

16% (18.4T/114.6T)

21% (24.9T/120.9T)

22% (32.2T/146.3T) in October

It is almost like we have a plan we have been executing on for 2 1/2 years.

(Zander Exvirus) #5

Anokis when?

(Arrendis) #6

Soooo… Fade doesn’t exist in October?

(Wilhelm Arcturus) #7

The “3Y Economic Indices” chart is the one from August. Or it stops at the end or August, rather than at the end of October as one might expect.

Which BBQ? :slight_smile:

Congratulations are due, it is a not a mean feat! - whether it is good for the game itself is another matter.

And by that, I don’t mean to criticise the occupants of delve, but rather question the ability for one region of space to produce 22% of all income - maybe that IS something that needs to be looked at - although that’ll have to come from CCP as the CSM is not exactly likely to do anything against its own interests (also congratulations for taking over the CSM)

Cache also went missing in October. Why wasn’t “We’re removing two regions” in the Onslaught patch notes?

Less surprised that nobody in-game noticed that those two regions went missing.

God, this is disgusting. At least destruction in Delve is up by 200B. :joy:

Everything is working as intended.

(Arrendis) #11

Yeah, clearly, when people in one part of nullsec are willing to do the PvE that most of the rest of nullsec’s been actively dumping on for ten years, it’s a problem when they reap the benefits of doing that work.

Or, you know, everyone else could put on their big boy pants and do some mining of their own.

Whoosh :wind_face:

(Ethan02) #13

New highs for everything…


(Balos Tritapo) #14

50% alphas at BEST…

Those shiny statistics begin to fade away knowing that…

(Arrendis) #15

Alphas don’t fly Rorquals.

(Balos Tritapo) #16

This proves exactly what?

This is a global statistic

It even includes bots…

(Arrendis) #17

Looked like you were responding to the post right above yours: ‘Regional Stats for ‘Delve’’.

(Balos Tritapo) #18

alphas are everywhere :stuck_out_tongue:

(Arrendis) #19

But the Delve numbers are Rorquals and supercarriers.

And Alphas don’t fly them.


Them Goonies are literally busy bee’s.
