Ship Destruction Stats

Ship Destruction Stats -

A short time ago, CCP began paying closer attention to the number of ships that have been destroyed in EVE Online, and in their latest dev blog they reveal their data in graph form and break down the numbers.

It was November of 2004, and CCP had just released the brand new Exodus expansion a couple of days beforehand. With extreme confidence, I dock up in Yulai X - DED Assembly Plant and purchased for myself one of the newly released ships, a Catalyst class destroyer. I then proceeded to spend over ten million ISK fitting the newest tech two modules to it.

I went forth, in search of war targets of my corporation at the time, and at the second gate I came to, I found an enemy interceptor. Still feeling confident - a destroyer is meant for killing smaller targets after all, I locked on, warp scrambled him and started firing. Certain of victory, with all eight blasters ablaze, I watched the shields and armor of my opponent rapidly fall. Not paying enough attention to the status of my own ship, I didn't notice the dire straits I was in until it was too late. I saw my ship explode, and realized just how essential fitting a stasis webifier when fighting interceptor class frigates really is. But that was ok, I didn't want that ship anyway. Or so I told myself, as I logged out in a fit of nerd rage, but not before a decent bout of local smacktalk though.
