A million-dollar Space Battle is Happening in EVE Online Video Game

A million-dollar Space Battle is Happening in EVE Online Video Game

EVE Online is a vast, community-driven space MMO where players can play for free, choosing their own path. The new Arms Race release gives players even more for free now, including access to all ships up to Battleship class, across any faction. Get even more involved in immense PvP battles, as well as PvE combat, exploration, mining, industry and a thriving player economy in an ever-expanding sandbox.

The players of EVE Online are currently in the middle of an intense battle which involves several thousand people and over $,000,000 of war machines; the latter of which could be totally wiped out by this tomorrow.

Essentially, two player factions are facing off in the same system. Over 6,000 players are currently logged in, more than any in a single system before. The Imperium is attacking a massive ship owned by the Pandemic Horde … and if you don’t know what those words mean, it’d take a slideshow and a thesis to explain. Short version: It’s a culmination of a long-standing grievance between two parties, to be settled on a larger scale than has ever been attempted in this 15-year-old game.

EVE players take their money very seriously, too — if you’ve never played, you’d be astonished to discover the amount of capital that’s moved around. The reason this battle is being designated as a “million dollar battle” is because over $1,000,000 of in-game items on which players have spent their money could be destroyed.

If you happen to catch one of the Twitch streams currently showing the fight, you might not have even an inkling of a notion what they’re up to. According to PC Gamer, developer CCP Games is using Time Dilation — slowing down time, essentially — to handle the burden of so many players at once, so the battles look positively glacial. Be assured you’re not missing anything of great import: the fun comes after the dust settles and we get to see how much the players wrecked.
