Default Does anybody play Eve online?

Just curious what the hell is going on. They are saying $2,000 a minute is being lost in this war. I would never play the game, but it intrigues me. Seems as silly as bitcoin.


$250,000 in "titans" lost already. haha. wtf.

It took 455 people to engage and destroy just ONE of those super ships. Using an ISK (the currency in the game) to USD converter that maintains a constant connection to the Eve servers to maintain accuracy... The death of the The Kan cost it's owner $4,475.75 in real world money.

And that is just ONE ship that was destroyed in this war.

I beta tested the game about 12 years ago. Never spent any cash during testing. There can be some massive space battles when large clans go to war.

3 kids keep me from any gaming now.

I played it for years as most of the people running around in titans have as well and over time you accumulate more and more in game currency. With being able to relate real world money into in game money you can calculate the equivalent of how much is being lost.

Now the people who are losing the big ships did not go out and spend 5 grand on a ship then lose it, you can equate the loss to the real currency.

However, there have been people who have spent several thousands of real dollars to purchase in game time cards only to undock and get blown up. These people are literally losing all that cash that they just used to buy time cards.

Eve is an excellent game with real consequences for doing stupid stuff and getting yourself killed. It's also been around for 10 years and it has steadily been growing year over year. How many other games can say that and are subscription based?
