EVE Online: record-breaking battle in progress, watch live

Monday, 29 July 2013 01:13 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The largest battle in EVE Online’s history has drawn over 4,000 warriors to the front lines.

According to the latest update from CCP staff, 4,070 pilots are involved.

The new conflict has more than 1,000 more participants than the last record-setting confrontation.

The higher numbers aren’t unexpected; unlike the last mass battle, which broke out organically, this one was planned in advance.

CCP is supporting the event by slowing game time to help servers cope with the unusual load.

Check out a livestream below; The Verge is running updates on the battle for those of us unable to parse.
