HBC vs CFC lowsec Superbrawl EVE Jan 27
This was not the main brawl, just a small batch of us hunting down one of the 27 Titans that were in system.
Just getting back into eve after building a new rig. Got jabber set up and saw a ping for all hands on dicks. Hopped in a rifter and burned to Asakai (super cap brawl in Low Sec? Dafuq?). After waiting over an hour on Traffic Control to sex it up in the back of my ship and nut numbingly slow grid-loads I realized my overview was fucked (just installed the game on the new rig, nothing was configured), I followed my fleet to a small brawl elsewhere in-system.
10% TiDi and thousands in local in the ass end of low sec in a shit fit rifter with a fresh install, unconfigured EVE client. Yeah, That's how I fly.
EDIT: How the hell. This made it to Kotaku so I feel I should clarify. This is only a small portion of the full 2800 in Asakai that night. I warped in to the blob (after literally 1.5 hours of lagging my way across what should have only taken a minute at most), and long story short, in a sea of Titans and Supercapitals thousands of times as large and powerful as my dinghy, somewhere in the deep depth of lag hell and Frames taking full seconds to render, I heard my FC inform me that they found an Avatar that had dc'd (Yay for melting servers!) and warped out to a safepoint. So we got him pointed, and this ensued. This is only a few hundred people, multiply this by about 10, and replace a lot of the smaller ships with bigger ships, and you end up with this, teh main blob elsewhere in the same system (at roughly the same time): https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Or2i0s44WCU#!
TEST is BEST.
