Basically, someone misclicked and jumped their great big ship into a pile of hostiles. Enemies pounced on it so he called back up... then the enemies called back up... and so on, and so on.

Eve is pretty awesome from where I'm sitting. Which is not playing. Are all of these guys masochists?

 

Anyway, I watched vid and...nevermind.  Read the story; someone explain "bridged". I get everything that happened except that part: he meant to "bridge" not jump.

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

a titan class ship can create a jump-bridge to a beacon that ships can travel through. basicaly somebody in lowsec lighted the beacon, the titan pilot instead of creating the bridge (so other ships can jump) initiated a jump to that beacon with his ship.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Personally I thought it looked rather boring but then again I don't care much for PvP nor do I care about scifi.  To each their own I suppose.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

830 billion ISK in ships gone, wow. That must be in the region of $20000 in PLEX.

Here's a link to a Reddit discussion on it, which includes some pretty interesting* overview from Kiresays:

*Azzamasin, don't click it. It's about PVP and sci-fi. You won't find it interesting.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

The stats are pretty epic but that video is kinda boring... I am sure it was fun if you were there though.

The lag there must have been insane, but as always, something from EVE is epic.

I find most PVP videos are far, far less interesting than the actual PVP experience itself. A video of a Shadowbane city siege or Lineage 2 castle siege video would bore me to tears, but they were some of the most amazing battles I've ever been in.

Oh yeah, for sure. Tbh watching other people play has never been my thing, which is part of the reason the whole streaming/ esports thing leaves me cold. It's a cool story tho.

I never cared for watching video of the fights either.  Being a combatant though is a blast.

I bet people didn't bother clicking through :-) I saw the post when it came out on reddit. Very nice pics.
