    With the ninth alliance tournament drawing to a close this weekend, we in research wanted to take a look at the last four and see exactly how much of what has been blown up over the years. With over 2,400 people taking part in the last four tournaments and over 4,500 kill reports registered with CONCORD, there's quite a lot to dig into!

    So, without further ado...

    Ships destroyed by ship group for tournaments 5 through 9.

    Cruisers were by far the favourite damage dealing component of tournament groups in tournaments five and six, but with changes to the points system this swapped over to both battlecruisers and battleships for seven and eight. Frigates have consistently been very popular "filler" ships to use up any remaining points and ensure each team has as many pilots as they can field. The substantial spike in tournament seven could be attributed to the rule changes implemented in that tournament, such as the restriction of only allowing a maximum of two of the same ship type in each fight. This made creating strategies much more complex, helping create some additional carnage.

    Top ten ship types destroyed throughout the tournaments.

    ECM ships have been popular through these tournaments, as can be seen from the Griffin, Rook and Kitsune all being in the top ten. These ships are known for their very powerful ECM bonuses. Which makes sense; if an enemy can't target you their options for inflicting damage become rather restricted.

    Ships destroyed by tech level.

    There has been a very clear move over time towards higher tech level ships, which can be put down both to rule changes regarding the points required for various ships and the increased sums of ISK people seem to be willing to invest into the tournament

    Pandemic Legion, the winners of tournaments six, seven and eight are clearly the highest on the list with just under double the number of kills than Dead Terrorists at number two.

    Current value of ships lost in the last four tournaments. All values are based on the May 2011 market price of those ships.

    Each of the last four tournaments has seen an increase in the average value of the ships destroyed, with losses in tournament eight being over two and a half times the average value of losses in tournament five when the ships are valued at their May 2011 market price and for the purposes of this, "unique" ships (such as the Freki) and capsules are considered to have no value.

    The ISK value of each of the ship groups destroyed.

    Again, these prices are calculated from the average market price of those ships as of May 2011. This gives a better way of measuring the relative value between tournaments but is not a perfect measurement for the value each year. However, CPI has not changed drastically since then having been relatively stable since 2008. The bulk of the money lost in the tournaments has been spent on the battleship class vessels; almost 120 billion ISK.

    Lastly, our congratulations to the two players who have lost the most ships in these tournaments. Koronos came at the top of the scoreboard with 10 losses and NTRabbit a close second with 9.

    Don't forget to follow the action this weekend as tournament nine is wrapped up, all broadcast live on EVE TV!
