Crazy Players in EVE Online
Most people in Singapore would probably have never heard of the online game EVE Online. It’s a space online game where players pilot spaceships for trade and to control territories. Gamers in Singapore probably have heard of the online game before but most of them, like me, are probably not playing the game.
After hearing the latest piece of news from the game, most would probably never will. They, like me, will probably be too scared to do so.
In what’s called the biggest, largest and longest PvP battle ever recorded, over 3,000 players from Russia and Europe engaged in a battle for control of a territory in the game called LXQ2-T. As you can see from the screenshots above, this is no joke (all the small dots you see at the background are all players). Yes, over 3,000 players at one battle.
I can only ask this, “Are you people insane?”
I know of some games that don’t have that many players that login at any time of the day, and there are that many players at just ONE battle. What’s even more amazing is that the server didn’t crash. Although there are reports of players being crippled by 10 minutes lag, the server did manage to stay up. Now that’s amazing!
