Largest Space Battle in EVE Online History

The dust is currently settling over the largest battle in EVE Online history, but who was fighting and more importantly, who won?EVE Online witnessed it's largest ever battle last night as over 4000 pilots took to the skies to fight for their corporation. The warring corps in question were The TEST Alliance and CFC, the two largest corps in the EVE-verse, who battled it out in 6VDT, a system in the Fountain region. (EVE Online, PC)

"EVE Online's developers, CCP Games, slowed in game time down to just 10% of normal speed to help it's servers cope with the mass of calculations it had to perform as the two giants duked it out."

The battle raged on for several hours..."

"Real world losses are estimated to be at least $20,000 for TEST, worked out by calculating the in game worth of ships lost and then converting to the real world cost of buying that much in-game currency."

Jesus...

it's worth noting that it went on for about 5 hours, but that is at 10% speed so in reality it was much less than that.

Still crazy though, especially the real world cash stuff.

I know, right? You wake up one day, get online to play a video game, and lose hundreds or thousands of dollars (I'm talking individually here) by the end of the day.

Talk about a heck of a day.

I don't even play EVE (or dust514) but I love reading stories about it. Always seems so epic.

Hell yeah reading the major ongoings EVE OR DUST 514 is pretty interesting because these guys are hardcore passionate about this stuff.
