Today is the end of August and I am finally writing about EVE Online's Monthly Economic Report (MER) for July 2020. Examining the July MER interests me for two reasons. First is the beginning of what may turn into one of the large conflicts involving tens of thousands of players that EVE is known for. The second is July is the one year anniversary of the beginning of Blackout, or as I like to call the event, Hurricane Hilmar. In today's post, I'll examine both the month over month changes wrought by the current political climate in null security space as well as comparing the year over year performance of the first month of the Blackout.
First, a look at the money supply in New Eden. The amount of ISK in the economy is still a major concern for CCP. Also, the Active ISK Delta is an indicator of players either leaving or returning to the game. A positive or slightly negative Active ISK Delta usually indicates a big event drawing players back to the game.
