Siege of M-0EE8 - Largest battle in gaming history

Post by Novatek » Sun Dec 11, 2016 11:53 am

From 1600 EVE time on Saturday until 0200 this morning, a total of 513.68 billion ISKÔÇÖs worth of ships and structures were recorded as destroyed in the system, with 300 billion of that being the Keepstar itself. To put that number into another context, 513.68 billion ISK would currently buy around 485 PLEX on the open market, which is enough to subscribe an account for over 40 years of game time and would cost between $7,275 and $9,675 US to buy with cash.

EVEÔÇÿs previous record-holding battles were 2014ÔÇÖs infamous Bloodbath of B-R5RB in which 11 trillion ISK went up in smoke and a world record holding fight in 6VDT-H in 2013 that had 4,070 players at its peak. YesterdayÔÇÖs battle didnÔÇÖt come anywhere near the level of financial destruction in B-R5RB, but it absolutely smashed 6VDT-HÔÇÖs record for concurrent players with over 5,300 in the system at one point. This makes the siege of M-0EE8 Keepstar the new world record holder for the single largest PvP battle in gaming history, which makes you wonder how much larger it could have been if the defenders had shown up in force.

Those eve fights get crazy. Wish i had patience to to player
You either get bitter or get better. You either take what has been dealt to you and allow it to make you a better person, or you allow it to tear you down. The choice does not belong to fate, it belongs to you.

Sounds awesome to watch, better than a lot of movies. Mixed feelings about actually participating in it; a nameless face in a sea of thousands where you aren't even sure anything you're doing even matters. If I ever am inclined to PVP I much rather be someone who's recognized, maybe in a battle of 50v50 or 100v100 where you can feel that your actions have a direct outcome in your sides victory (or loss). From above, you could be big and bad enough that single handed you wipe out a hundred people, which literally could have no impact on the outcome...

That is so awesome. I've always wanted to get in Eve and experience some of what it has to offer. Maybe one day...
