EVE Online battle with 2,800 players, in pictures
We're not sure how to feel about this gigantic, 2,800-player space battle that took place in EVE Online this weekend. As a potential method of predicting humanity's interstellar future, this fight in particular was polarizing. For one, it was beautiful – the screenshots, compiled in an album here, are gorgeous renders of spiderweb lasers and stardust surrounding powerful feats of man. For another, the pictures show an absolute warzone beyond any chaos we know. But seriously, it was pretty.

The fight was in Asakai and involved a Caldari Factional Warfare alliance, the Drunk 'n' Disorderly alliance, and a few gravity wells that pulled in more ships throughout the night. Redditor Admiral_Dovolski described the scene, concluding with the following words of insight: "Shit went down."
