I speak 3 languages but not the above one and this is an english based website so what the hell is wrong in asking someone to speak in english?

Athonline  +   419d ago
And the video of the player watching his ship being destroyed...
MWong  +   419d ago
@ Athonline

Now that would have been too cruel. The player was probably doing the rage dance or screaming "No, No, oh GOD this can't be happening ... no no NOOOOOOOOOO!!!" as it happened. Especially since it's 1 of 3 ever had in the game.

malokevi  +   420d ago
I've never played the game, nor seen it played. So I watched the video of the event, and was like "uhhhhh......"

Looks cool. But is that far-off perspective the only way to play the game?
HammadTheBeast  +   420d ago
No in those massive battles most PC's have to go into that view so their graphics cards don't melt. But you can completely zoom in and the game looks amazing.
malokevi  +   420d ago
Thats awesome. I wish they could bring that sort of quality to the console universe. I can't even fathom that type of experience, as it stands.
ATi_Elite  +   420d ago
You can Zoom in but you will not be as efficient as a Zoomed out player who is taking in more data.

Zoomed in has great graphics and detail but Zoomed out has the benefit of more information and view distances.

Loosing $9k is a lot of hard work and time. His faction is to blame as that ship should have been better protected.
Software_Lover  +   420d ago
I have no idea WTF was going on in that video.
andibandit  +   420d ago | Funny
From looking at the video it seems that a X-wing and the Millenium Falcon, flew to the center of the ship and destroyed the power core.

OrangePowerz  +   420d ago
Poor guy, I hope he had it insured. I have seen people stop playing after loosing less valuable ships because they put all their efforts and time into getting the ships.
Iltapalanyymi  +   420d ago
lol what a waste. i would never put any money in any item in any online game.
OrangePowerz  +   420d ago
It doesn't mean he did, but thats the rough conversion of what those ships are worth if you decide to spend real money.
dumahim  +   420d ago
Yeah. I seem to recall years ago they compared the economy of Eve and some other MMORPGs to the economy of some small countries. Doesn't mean people were spending real money, but it does have a real world value.
OrangePowerz  +   420d ago
It does and some people would actually spend that amount of real life money on it. I'm a miner so I dont go after super awesome ships, but I would be very pissed if I would lose my mining ship. I have seen some very valuable ships destroyed from my corp while they protected us mining.
SIRHC13  +   420d ago
9,000$... $9,000

Come on, now
PurpHerbison  +   420d ago
Even in what is supposed to be a hype moment in EVE, it still fails to grab me.
Squall5005  +   420d ago
In my opinion, that $9000 was already lost when he purchased the ship. $9000 on a game? Get a life.
OrangePowerz  +   420d ago
It doesnt mean he spent that amount on it, just that it would cost roughly that amount if you spend real life money on the ressources to build it.
raiden-49  +   420d ago
yea he could have bought $9000 worth of games.
The_Troll_Whisperer  +   420d ago
LOL ''get a life''

You probably think he spent $9000 in real life to buy the ship XD.

280-380 Billion ISK(EVE Online currency) = 8-9 thousand dollars
AbortMission  +   420d ago
Eve is the PC social reject game Lol it's effing insane how anyone would spend so much money in a game (I know that he didn't actually spend money)
RedHawkX  +   420d ago
what do you get for destroying the thing? could you have stolen the ship or hijacked it or something?
admiralvic  +   420d ago
The satisfaction of ruining someones day, week, month, year, whole experience on the game? You lose something like that and you're bound to be sad.
mmj  +   420d ago
Feel bad for the guy but perhaps now he can move onto something more worthwhile, it's not worth playing if the reward for your work can be taken from you that easily.

You must be dumb as a brick to pay so much for something thats not really there!,seriously...I would rather build myself a monster rig or buy 3 3D screens,hahaha I guess he is going to think tqice before buying pixels for that much!
Angeljuice  +   420d ago
You must be as dumb as a brick if you cant understand it isn't real money.
admiralvic  +   419d ago
The person did not pay $9,000 dollars per se, they just so happened to have an item worth $9,000 dollars. This is because the in game currency has a real world equivalency value. With that being said, it's entirely possible that their loss might have been far greater, since they lost a LOT of time invested.

Either or, losing a ship worth $9,000 dollars sounds better than "Player loses one of the rarest ships in the game"

Well, It seems like he didn't pay $9000. So I guess it's not that bad.

Didn't people on EVE online pay $30,000+ before? Thought people used to spend alot more money on that game.

Saying that, $9000 isn't too much. My friend used to sell MMO characters/avatars for $1000.
papashango  +   420d ago
understandable. The whole shtick about MMO's is that you are to spend countless hours grinding for an endgame social life.

It translates to roughly $5/hr to people that have put hundreds of hours into their character and sell it for $1k. It's even worse for the seller if it was their main they've put years into. It's actually a better deal for the buyer.
hkgamer  +   420d ago
well, some people have alot of fun playing these games.

However, my friend was able to quickly grind these characters out by using help from his alternate characters.

Some games are pretty quick to level up, also doesn't take much effort since you could leave it alone on the side whilst you watch tv or play another game.

not saying its worth its time, but is not as much effort as other people would think.
lgn15  +   420d ago
These kind of people are so strange. Like my little bro spending hundreds of dollars on Maplestory cash... Hundreds of dollars on pixels, intangible pixels.
sherimae2413  +   419d ago
but the happiness your brother gets is priceless ^_^
i also done that in playing Lineage 2 and Ragnarok online i bought top up cards and ingame currencies for real life currency
lgn15  +   419d ago
Well dude, I'm not gunna criticize you because you can do anything with your money. In the end, yes, it is just a purchase like any other. I just feel like it could be better spent on a game console, pc, ect.
zippycup  +   420d ago
i don't now what is worse the lose of the ship or the people who did not read the storie and actually thought he spend $9k on the ship

eve has an economy that is comparable to real world the money he used was made in game playing and if it was traded over to real world currency it would be worth $9k
TuxedoMoon  +   420d ago
Sucks to be that guy. I'm not too into MMOS to the point where my characters or stuff is worth any real money. Trading Real money for fake money? No thanks.
frankiebeans  +   420d ago
good thing it wasn't over 9000....
erick21093  +   419d ago
I was struggling to understand what was going on in the video until I read the person's explanation to someone else who felt the same way.

It must have sucked big for that guy to lose that amount of ISK all in that short time period after all he had done to get it. I will say, game looks interesting but a tad bit too much going on.

My life would be in shambles if I played that game for extended periods of time lol
aLiEnViSiToR  +   419d ago
I am sorry but 9000$ http://blogs.miaminewtimes....
lex-1020  +   419d ago
He didn't actually lose any money. It was just the value of it all.

" annihilation of the ship has done to his owner lost about 280-380 billion ISK (the currency of EVE Online), which is equivalent to about 8-9 thousand dollars."
