This is Whacked; Watch £14,000 of virtual spaceships get destroyed in Eve Online


"A huge battle in the sci-fi universe of EVE Online has seen a group of players lose spaceships worth £14,000 of real money.

EVE's in-game groups of players are called "corporations", and a corporation called Deklien had teamed up with another called the Northern Coalition in a war against a third -- Ev0ke, with the aim of pushing Ev0ke out of their sector of space, known as Cloud Ring.

Ev0ke had three massive Titan-class battleships under construction in a system called TN-T7T, and Deklien needed to neutralise the threat before the ships could be completed and added to Ev0ke's armada. So the corporation assembled a huge fleet of capital ships to assault the outpost."
