EVE Online: The recent player run pvp contest comes to a close on January 14, 2010. This is the second installment of Helicity Boson's declaration of open season on miners in EVE Online. Quotes of the damage and casualties taken directly from the Hulkageddon II website.

 


 

And that, as they say is that! After countless forum whines, hatemails, exploding people and ships, we have finally come to the end of the road for this iteration of Hulkageddon.

And I can safely say, it’s been a resounding success beyond my highest expectations!

The Damage:

After our week of preying on the defenseless, the stupid, or the plain braindead, we come to the following:

1220 Exhumers

332 Barges

12 Orcas

240 capsules

(and one Carrier, which is a bit silly, but I’m leaving it cos it’s cool)

According to the Griefwatch killboard, which undervalues exhumers significantly, this brings the damage inflicted to:

278,865,104,560 ISK

Needless to say, that is a poo-poo load of damage inflicted.

Now I’m going to spend a lot of time sorting out who won what, you can help by evemailing Hulkageddon Jackpot if you think you (or someone else) has completed an achievement. I’ll be handing out the prizes early next week!

Thank you all for joining, and making this event such a blast and a success!

 278 Billion Isk to go up in smoke and the chaps that now how to replace a ship worth over 1 billion isk. And in doing a little bit of simple math that works out to be $19,000 in USD worth of PLEX's that can be sold for cold hard cash.

Is your cash supply endless? I wish mine was.

The good thing is that EVE Online is on of the only games that can support this type of creativity and PvP element in an MMO. 

Keep an eye on this blog for the winners to be announced soon.

Until then...

Play safe.
