In Eve Online, there is a massive Battle ongoing in the System of M2-XFE.

For now it’s not the Battle with most Players involved (about 5400, biggest was 6500 earlier 2020), but it’s on the way to become the most expensive one.

At this early point of the Battle (about 2h30 after Titans went active) there are already 60 killed Titans and even some faction Titans (4x expensive)

The start of M2-XFE

Around midnight EVE Server Time (GMT) the biggest (and apart from very special and limited ships the most expensive ones) Ships – Titans   – started triggering their Doomsday Weapons.

Objective of the Fight

The Objective of the Fight was about a Keepstar – Largest available Structure in the Game – from Goonswarm Federation. Fights to kill Structures usually happen in three “Timers” – Shield, Armor and Structure. This was the Armor timer. While those Structures are expensive to build, the massive losses of  Titans on both sides dwarfs the value of one single Keepstar.

About massive Fights in Eve Online

Massive fights in EVE Online are fought in “Time Dilation”. This means, in the Star System where the fight happens, time is dialed down to 10%, meaning one real hour are 6 minutes in the game, slowing everything down to give the Servers a chance to calculate and interpret the actions of all the players involved.

With such high player and ship numbers, even the biggest and best fitted ships can be volleyed off the field by beeing targeted by 100+ characters at once.

Besides the “Big Toys” like Titans shooting their counterparts, there are Fleets of up to 256 Pilots even down to the smallest of ships securing strategic positions and structures to give their side an edge in the big Battle.
