The Bloodbath of B-R5RB

With over 7,500 players from around the world participating (2,670 in the system at once time), the scale becomes nearly unimaginable, the story more intriguing, and the visuals even more beautiful. So moved were we that we simply had to start work on an in-game monument created to commemorate it called “Titanomachy”.

11 Trillion ISK in damages, equating approximately $300k-$330k USD of estimated value. 75 of the game’s largest ships were destroyed.

The official recap of the battle is full of pictures, videos, graphs, contextualization and even some primary sources from the fleet commanders themselves.

Go check it out here if you are at all interested in Science fiction, MMOs or online gaming. As was said earlier this month, “EVE is the game science fiction warned us about.” For over 21 straight hours this past Monday that couldn’t be more true.

Coincidentally, we just deployed EVE Online: Rubicon 1.1 to the servers immediately following the battle.
