a long invasion of our goon homelands is culminating in a battle thats happening right now. this should be one of those things that gets its own wikipedia entry, and not like EVE wiki the real one. we are defending one of our Keepstar bases, not even the important one

all those ships you can see are Titans, the largest ships in EVE Online. they are nerd chariots of the highest order and are basically Star Citizen ships but in a real game. each one costs about $1,300 of real world money if you wanted to just buy it. 6 were destroyed in the screenshot i posted

the beams of light are doomsday devices, they are like the deathstar beam and if you use enough of them you can destroy a titan in one shot. we are destroying many many titans right now

we're the largest alliance in the game, but we are currently being invaded by a coalition of the three alliances below us in numbers. they have been losing. if this battle goes to plan the war will be over

there really isn't much "going on". large eve battles are insanely laggy. its not like a super strategic star wars battle, its basically two fat guys doing tug-of-war in a pit full of frozen maple syrup

One time some goons made fun of a worse goon's rallying EVE speech and said goon who made the speech tried invoking copyright as a reason to stop being made fun of and the very same goon got permabanned and all mention of EVE was verboten for a while afterward https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=2500357

we are trading ships pretty steadily on each side, goons are pulling ahead. but just the fact that this battle is happening means we win; our alliance is extreamly rich we have more titans than we do titan pilots. this is not even our main HQ, or the emergency backup HQ.

that means if we trade ships 1:1 their invasion is over and we are still a major power

i have currently successfully jammed over 1500 titans since the fight began across just my alts, i have a couple other guys with me too

note: it takes over 2 minutes in this kind of tidi to even begin to start locking, let alone locking and activating guns/modules (another 2 minutes or more!)
