Over 3,000 Players Join EVE's Battle of Asakai

Posted Tue, Jan 29, 2013 by Martuk

When it comes to massive player engagement battles, few games do them as well as EVE Online. This weekend one EVE pilot, through a simple misclick, ended up sparking a massive battle that ended up drawing more than 270 alliances and over 3,000 EVE pilots into the conflict referred to as the Battle of Asakai. CCP has posted a blog recapping the event and Alizabeth over at TheMittani.com has a pretty solid recap of the battle. In retrospect, it's one of mistakes that could happen to anyone. But in EVE, a simple mistake can quickly escalate into a major conflict.

If you’re curious to see just how insane the battle managed to get, check out the video embed courtesy of Bobamelius’ YouTube channel below. It's another testament to why life in the EVE universe is both interesting and entertaining.
