LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The most expensive battle in the 10-year history of the online sci-fi video game "EVE Online" is over after 21 hours of virtual warfare.
"EVE" developer CCP Games says the CFC and Russian forces won the encounter that ended up causing about 11 trillion dollars' worth of damage in "EVE" currency, which equals about $300,000 to $330,000 in real-world money.
"EVE" simulates a universe of more than 7,500 stars. It features more than 500,000 players piloting starships and engaging in a virtual economy linked to real-world money.
CCP Games says the skirmish erupted after a coalition member missed a bill payment that would've ensured security.
During the encounter, 75 Titan vessels were destroyed. The megaships take months for gamers to build and are worth about $3,000 each.
