While i dislike EVE's visuals during a battle (Purple squares vs Orange Squares) this video captures that appeal that i love so much, hope SC can live up to this scale, it would be a truly awesome site in FP
Groza Dallocort (2 days ago)
Thats just so people can get an overview of the battlefield intel is key after all. Sure it dosent look good but then capitals dosent really move that much
Merchant Ivory (3 days ago)
Please read comment again, i said "Visuals" of which eve has 1/10, 1 for squares...visuals EVE's combat is the most lack lust combat of any space game, that said its still great, just not for me, i have to see the battles.

Are there several people that controls a Titan or just one person?
Groza Dallocort (3 days ago)
K Hitch only one person, there are homever crew onboard as well acording to the lore but they dont do anything to gameplay

Never played the game. Well, I'm installing it now, but this. This got me into the game. The fact that a huge battle could take place on a computer. This isn't League. This isn't Clash of Clans. This isn't Total War. This. Is. Eve.

Eve is way more fun to read about than it is to play. And that's not a bad thing. In the same way I'd rather play battlefield 1 than actually be on the western front.

The coolest part of the battle is that fact that both sides received massive reinforcement when the sun rose over the North American continent. Truly an awesome concept for all gamers to behold, even if we don't play the game. I kind of wish they would record automatically once a large battle begins. Say when TiDi begins the area with the most traffic starts saving the battle into secondary storage so once it is complete people can view the battle in real time. As if the battle is kind of the rendering stage. You can go back and view these battles on your game as a spectator.

Never played Eve Online but the story of this battle spread throughout online games i was playing but i still ignored it. Then i was shocked when i heard about it again but this time on the news. Now i'm at a point where i'm considering sinking time into this game. Hopefully another colossal battle takes place in where i take part.

To play the game. Get the month free trial. Join a Corp that specialises in resource and trade management or Mining Industries. Mine a lot of ISK and buy better mining/transport ships to pack a larger,spacious cargo hold. Use that in game currency to buy membership cause it is possible.
BargainBin (11 months ago)
Why this is considered a way more intense topic?! It's because of the amount of players that had partaken in the battle,cost it amounted for every ship lost,server didn't crash and the fact that everyone money invested here can be lost in an instant.

I remember logging on while the battle raging,& everyone was talking about it in game all trying to get real time news on who was winning.I remember there so many people, who weren't part of either Corp coalition, just trying to get into the system to watch it first hand only to die or lag out. Jita was going fucking crazy during those first few hours. Once word got out of how large the battle was becoming alot of the market people were trying to determine when it best to sell or buy as the battle was raging. They were trying to take full advantage of the outcome of the battle to their advantage. I also heard after the battle that some corps had mobilized their own fleets just in case something were too happen and they had to get involved. The whole sandbox theory about EVE definitely held true that day.

wait so you're telling me that if I created a profile, and went to this area, the wreckage would still be there, I heard about this game about 10 min ago and I have been watching game play... now this... fill me in??!!!
brt john (1 year ago)
Its true, some of the wrecks of those titans destroyed in the battle are still there for people to see it, together with a Memorial monument created as a tribute for those who spent 23+ hours fighting in that system that day.

Why would they fight each other just for a sovereignty bill? Did the fight worth the $300,000 that was lost due to the conflict?
Oxymoron (1 year ago)
Thanks, that was a really great explanation of things ^^. Even a layman like myself who knows absolutely nothing about the game (other than it is apparantly ruled by sociopaths) understood that. :)

On the N3 side: The solar system in question was the staging system for one of the alliances fighting on the side of N3, losing it like that was out of the question. N3 tried to make a stand, but they weren't expecting the CFC to use their supecapital fleet. This video is somewhat misleading, it claims that the CFC super fleet was on grid before N3, that's not actually what happened, N3 super fleet arrived in the field before the CFC. The N3 wasn't expecting and was not prepared for the CFC to jump their supers and titans into the battle, and the rest is history. and just to clarify the last point, when you commit your supers and titans into a battle you are pretty much fucked. Those things don't move very fast, so once you jump your super capital into a hostile field, you will stay until you can clear tackle of your supers/titans or until the enemy is dead, in this case, the N3 was fucked from the start, they jumped their supers into a hostile fleet, and they had no control over the grid, which means that they could not clear tackle of their supers and titans, so when the CFC jumped in, it was pretty much a "Fight until downtime" mentality. and for reference downtime is the daily maintenance for the servers, the servers are shut down and everybody gets disconnected from the game. For CFC it was way more simple, capturing the system would mean the potential removal of an enemy alliance (Pandemic Legion) out of the war in a single day, it was just too tempting of a target to not go for it. And keep in mind that the war wasn't going well for the CFC / Russian coalition, they were being pushed back by the N3 coalition and the Russians were on the brink of collapse, removing a major player in the enemy side is a fantastic way of turning things around for the war. Also nobody lost money, the "money lost" is just a representation of how much real value was destroyed (if you could actually exchange ingame items for real money) and you can't do that. It was a big loss in terms of ingame assets for those alliances, so much so that the N3 had to retreat and PL was removed from the war because of it, however it only took them a few months to get things back together, in fact it a day after the departure of the CFC coalition from the war, the Russians collapsed very quickly and the N3 not only managed to recover all of their space, but they also conquered all of the space the russians had before the war broke out.

Wish they could make money a different way than having to use subscriptions. Reason why I don't want to pay for it is because you already have to spend hours on it to get somewhere. Other than that, this looks so amazing and I just keep wishing ;_;

What's the best Titan?
The Mistocles (8 months ago)
I think the Caldari Leviathan titan is the best. Based on what I know.
Ziya Bahchegy (1 year ago)
in my opinion best titan is probably Ragnarok because it has decent tank and DPS balance.
Ziya Bahchegy (1 year ago)
honestly as a player that is involved with supercapitals, vanquisher isnt the best titan because its very expensive to make and it's BPCs are rare to find.
Ziya Bahchegy (1 year ago)
leviathan gets most tank
arctictoothpaste (1 year ago)
It is, the vanquisher titan was released a few months ago, its a pirate faction titan, it requires the skills needed pilot both a ragnarok and an erebus.

Ima Crank Ya nope, your really going to want to pay subscription, there are ships that are locked to only trial mode (free)
Jerichow (1 year ago)
You're going to get a limited F2P version of the game. Honestly I like the concept in a way. It gives people a no-risk shot at getting into the game, establishing themselves, and deciding if it's for them or not before they begin their subscription. In the end, I expect this to actually increase the number of paid subscriptions in the long run, because let's be honest... a 21 day trial of this game was never enough.

Jerichow (1 year ago)
Who knows. I remember being part of a corp in N3 at the time, and it wasn't uncommon for people to be asked to wake up hours before normal or stay up hours longer than normal to defend systems. I remember once, people in the US central time zone were being asked to wake up at like 3 in the morning to defend a system, it was ridiculous, but that was all part of the opposing force's plan to try and limit the number of people actually logging on to defend. But people set their alarms, showed up, and defended the system, so I guess if the reason has enough meaning, people will make it happen.

iv been in goonswarm for 6 years and this was probably the most memorable battle iv had i was in a dreadnought the entire battle and somehow survived iv been in cap fights before but not on that kind of fight. it wasnt until a month or two after that battle i realized how crazy and historical in the games history it was and i decided to retire that same moros i had, it was my first capital ship and it fought in a really historic battle and because of that i keep that ship locked away in some station never to be used battle again iv since lost like 3 dreads since lol

Tyber Septim (1 year ago)
A sovereignty bill is a bill that you have to pay in order to own your own system of space in Eve. If not payed, it can be stolen. Even when it is payed, you still have to defend it.
Dart Mada (1 year ago)
I'm in the process of building a brand-new computer; I want it for photography (I'm a professional freelancer) but also for gaming. once I get it up and running (in about 3 more months; I can only afford to buy one part at a time) I'm going to get this game. I've played it off and on over the years but I've never had a computer of my own before that's good enough to play it (in terms of system requirements.) it's a lot of fun. I think it's cool that they programmed in a kind of monument to that battle right in the game itself. but are the ships that in the monument really look like the ships that players used in the battle? and how big is it exactly? the monument I mean. just curious. I would have loved to have been in that.
as far as i know, no. the wreck were replaced at the daily maintenance time, and were put beautifully along with the statue for us to rape the screenshot button.
Dart Mada (1 year ago)
actually I meant are the ships in the monument the ACTUAL ships that were destroyed in the battle?
Anodyne Melody (2 years ago)
Are there any corporations or private individuals salvaging parts from the destroyed hulls floating silently in the dark, unforgiving isolation of SPACE??

Joshua Fogg (1 year ago)
Anodyne Melody You can, but it's *extremely* risky. I've heard the CFC-RUS have set up regular patrols AND have hired Mercs to take out anyone even remotely suspected of salvaging.
Anodyne Melody *gets smart bombed*
jordan secrist (1 year ago)
yeah, especially cause it would take you forever to even get close to doing any damage to all those ships. lol
