Another Battle in the news

Post by Balthelion » Wed Jan 29, 2014 2:50 pm

The war -- dubbed "The Battle of System B-R5RB" -- saw the destruction of 75 Titan megaships and involved roughly 2,200 players.

And it all started because someone neglected to pay a bill.

Having read the official dev blog on the battle, I find it hilarious that to-date in 10 and a half years of EVE, only 12 Titans have ever been destroyed (granted: I figure Titans haven't been around since launch, but you get the point - it's very VERY rare)

In this battle, 75 Titans were destroyed :P

I can't link the article while at work but it should be easy enough to find. (I think i found it linked at the top of one of the dev blogs currently showing in the launcher)

bal, I am pretty sure thats 12 titans in an Entire fight, there have been many titans destroyed but this was the most in one go

"Easily the most telling fact is that no more than 12 Titans, ships that "take thousands of man-hours to produce, take months to train to fly, and are capable of fitting massive doomsday weapons that obliterate lesser ships with a single volley," had ever previously been destroyed in a single battle; at B-R5RB, a total of 75 were lost.

Titans have been around for 5-6 years now

So around half the history of EVE, the first few attempts to kill one when it was tackled always resulted in node deaths, as soooooooooooo many people where trying to get in on the kill.

I was 2 systems out when the first one was killed enforcing a blockade stopping anyone else (even friendly) getting into the system to stop yet another node crash.

So our orders was kill everything trying to run the blockade even if it was FRIENDLY unless it was in a HIC

Now I have a Titan on Sisi if you want to have a look close up and try bridging some point

I need to read up on this if most of those 75 where PL titans its bad news as PL despite being as big aholes as Goons where the main thing keeping goons In check, if it was Razor / Goons who won this fight decisivley then N3 are now in serious trouble and CFC could ride rough shod over the whole SE corner of EVE :(

From an interview with the 2 primary FCs :lol: :lol: :lol:

Laz: Next week we will lose all of our supercaps because of the hubris of us knowing that we won a fight with them.

Xander: Just don’t give Boat, just don’t let Boat FC supers. Just don’t do it. Under any circumstance.

Well either way, it's a colossal amount of Titan losses alone in that battle, and will no doubt alter the balance of power between the mega alliances substantially for the immediate future.
