The largest war in EVE Online history is brewing, and you don’t need to understand what’s going on to appreciate the gorgeous spectacle.

The conflict is so exciting that it’s drawn EVE Online YouTuber Rooksandkings back into the fray, crafting a short video that’s one part documentary, one part recruitment propaganda. If I were versed enough in CCP’s long-running science fiction MMO well enough to think I’d survive for more than a few seconds in one of these battles I’d join back up in a heartbeat.

Rooksandkings does an excellent job of describing what we’re seeing in this roiling mass of light and polygons.
