How about at the macro-economic scale? CCP Sreegs' operation would become the fourth largest isk sink in the game following skillbooks, blueprints and fees/taxes. If he is right about the effectiveness of his team they will remove the equivalent of 34% of all isk made by players running incursions. If everything stays the same the seizure of botters assets will reduce the growth of New Eden's money supply by 11%.
But everything is not staying the same. As both Jester and Kirith Kodachi have noted, CCP plans to not only remove alloy drops from rogue drones but are removing meta 0 drops as well. With this shift of obtaining minerals to miners, CCP Sreegs will face pressure as the incentive to run mining bots grows. I wonder if this possibility is factored into CCP Sreegs' calculations on how many assets he expects to seize.
