After the popularity of the statistics that I’ve been posting to twitter, I decided to take a look at 2011 as a whole. Some of the numbers are pretty staggering! Many stats, broken down into categories.

Planetary Interaction

There was an average of 64,840 planetary export transactions per day, or 2,701 per hour. Of that, 26,693 were in high sec, 6,936 in low sec, 15,844 in null sec and 15,366 in wormhole space. An average of 64,627 characters exported goods from a planet each month, with the annual total being 195,449 different characters.

The top five systems in empire space for planetary interaction and the average number of export transactions per day were:

Sobaseki

448.77

Perimeter

259.68

Maurasi

193.09

Muvolailen

156.79

Elonaya

153.17

Barren class planets were unsurprisingly the most utilised. Average number of export transactions per day per planet type:

Barren

20,386.70

Gas

11,441.06

Lava

11,072.17

Storm

Ice

Oceanic

Production

A lot was built! Just under 62 billion missiles. That’s an average of 7.08 million an hour. I’m pretty certain that’s more missiles than the Persians had arrows. 13.2 million ships, too - an hourly average of 1,506.

The Market

To finish this blog off - If there’s one big thing in EVE, it would have to be the market. In total in 2011, 348,483,735 market transactions were performed with a total combined trade value of 2,692,367,631,609,430 ISK. That’s a lot. To break that down, 2011 on average:


  Day Hour Minute Second
ISK 7,376,322,278,382 307,346,761,599 5,122,446,027 85,374,100
Transactions 954,750 39,781 663 11

Here's hoping for an even more productive and explosive 2012! If stats like these interest you, don’t forget to follow my twitter account and the comments thread of this blog. I’ll try to answer as many of the questions that come up as I can.
