"All Nukes on the Leviathan"

By Norman Chan

This is why EVE Online scares me.

You may have heard by now about the massive 3,100 player battle that took place over the weekend in the game EVE Online. What you may not know is that the battle (definitely not the biggest EVE fight to ever occur) started when the pilot of a Titan-class ship (worth about $3,000 in real-world dollars) accidentally warped into enemy territory without supporting troops. Estimates peg the losses at around 600 million ISK (in game currency), which translates to around $17,000 dollars. This video of the battle is remarkable, especially just to listen to the voice coms in the first five minutes of battle.
