One of EVE Online’s most powerful alliances dealt a heavy blow to an opposing group yesterday, luring their opponents into a very costly trap that destroyed nearly $17,000 worth of virtual ships. Five Titan Class ships, the largest and most expensive ships in the game, were destroyed in just a few minutes, with the…
EVE Online is about to get its biggest, most expensive warship ever: the Molok. A version of the game’s giant Titan spaceship that’s aligned with the Blood Raider pirate faction, it’s going to cost three to five times the price of an Avatar-class Titan. But all that cash outlay comes with serious benefits, like the…
This month, EVE Online publisher CCP announced some major changes to the way that the spacefaring MMO’s currency systems work. In a game where a spaceship can have a real-world value of over $2,000, that’s naturally caused some high-level players to freak out a little, and not without reason. Here’s a breakdown of…

Today’s a big day for the ever-churning vat of intergalactic intrigue that is EVE Online. It just went free-to-play, which means a big influx of players to disrupt the universe’s precarious balance of power.
