Epic battle kicking off in Eve Online

Space MMO Eve Online is renowned for its player factions and epic naval battles, where ships with substantial real-world values can be destroyed out en-masse. Forces are massing right now for what's reported as one the biggest yet, reports Ellis Hamburger at The Verge—perhaps even more brutal than the legendary Battle of Asakai, which wiped out a $20,000 fleet.

A player is livestreaming the face-off here: "The reason it's zoomed out is because with all these ships, my computer will die."
