The Battle of Asakai

Penny Arcade’s piece Planning for war: how the EVE Online servers deal with a 3,000 person battle climbed to the front page of Hacker News early this afternoon, at which point I came across the article and, curious, opened it. Althoug I spent roughly the next hour reading PC Gamer and The Mittani’s coverage of the incident and watching a number of videos taken during the battle, I still can’t quite wrap my head around a fight consisting of more than 3,000 individuals. Amazing.
