The Mittani had a write up - both for non-eve players and eve players.

I think so, Larry, and um, Brain, but how can we get seven dwarves to shave their legs?

Due to the Plex conversion of US Dollars to ISK, estimates put the cost of the battle at $300,000 to $330,000.

This blew my mind.

In the EVE universe, they'll put up a memorial onsite.

Personally, I'd expect prices to go up for construction materials steadily followed by another drop 3 to 6 months later. I'd also think that CFC/RUS will start to push their weight around in Nullsec space.

In the gaming sphere, having 4000 players in a single battle is pretty impressive.

Additionally, CFC and PL made a deal regarding the contents of the station they fought over. PL was able to pull at least some of their assets out of the station and has withdrawn to the 'north', meaning they've basically pulled out of the region.

So someone is putting a book together of the history of the politics, alliances, etc. of the first decade of Eve Online as a kickstarter.

"My favorite little nugget of history concerns an alliance from way back in 2003-2005 called Stain Alliance," Groen told me.

"They were sort of the pioneers of using psychological tactics in major wars. They didn't invent these ideas, but they were the first to implement them on a massive scale. And I was talking to Atli Mar Sveinsson aka CCP Praetorian who was one of the leaders of that alliance, and he told me that they literally stayed silent to the outside world for about a year. 

"The idea behind the silence being that while their enemies would warp into a fight and would instantly start talking shit...Stain Alliance would be completely silent. Stoic. And they'd actually shoot down their own ships if they broke the silence. So you can imagine being an enemy soldier...it's kind of terrifying to fight an enemy that refuses to say even a word. 

"But one day CCP Praetorian decided to break the long silence after winning a large battle, saying only, 'Collect your dead.' To which he says the reply came back, 'Are... are you real?'"


Yeah, what I think is...

Groen did some great coverage of both Eve Online and eSports stuff for PAR. I expect he'll do real well with this.
