Watch 3,000 Eve Online ships swarm a Nyx Supercarrier

New, 14 comments

CCP's massively multiplayer online game Eve Online reached its decade anniversary this year, and to celebrate more than 3,000 players took to space to engage in all-out combat.

The player-planned event, Flight of a Thousand Rifters III, challenged participants to kill one of the game's biggest enemy ships, a Nyx Supercarrier, with the game's smallest, Frigates. You can view the all-out chaos that resulted in the 17-minute video above.

Eve Online players are no strangers to massive conflicts. Earlier this year, more than 2,800 players joined a humongous battle sparked by a lone ship accidentally jumping into enemy territory. In an effort to bring Eve Online's player-driven world to life, CCP is developing a TV show and comic book series based on true, player-submitted stories.
