[VIDEO] Entire EVE online Raiden 0P9Z-I fight: How to make a thousand wrecks

I recorded one of the best battles I've been a part of a few days ago..

I did some very quick editing with no text or anything.. Pretty much just a raw speeded up version of the entire fight in 0P9Z-I that happend feb 10th.

Vid is recorded from a Drakes perspective. We were under heavy time dialation so vid is going mostly at 8x speed except when I follow the music.

As mentioned, no edit except speed, music and blocking chat channels so don't expect any history stuff.. You're thrown in from the start.

Great many thanks to all alliances involved. This was god damn epic to be part of. This is why we game :)

Vid can be downloaded here:

Wow, that's a really cool video, plus a nice soundtrack. I really enjoyed the variety of ships, the bubbles, the special effects, plus the killer ending with the Titans. Who knew space battles could be so pretty! I reckon that even if I lost a bunch of ships in a great fight like that, I wouldn't care just because I was there and because it was big!

It's great that huge battles are still happening in Eve, I had been wondering about that. Like I said, I really enjoyed the arrival of the Titans ~ afterall what's the point in having a hammer if you never use it? I had thought that most Titans were in hibernation these days.

I'm holding thumbs for more battle videos where the various sides decide to pull out their biggest ships. It was exciting, I wonder how many players had heart attacks when they rocked up.

Thanks for the video, it gave me chills. Cool I hope the opponents are game for more fights. Who'll be the winner next time? With Titans in play, I'm wondering what tactics would be used in future encounters.

much appreciated Pixxie :)

Our alliance forum is kinda swamped with vids of what I call "an overview vid" of all our fights. I wanted to show people the inside view as I like to 'use the camera' when in a fight.
This one came out really good tho.. Most vids I have I end up dieing and I gotta say that timedialation is a photographers best friend. It's easy to predict where there's an oportunity to get some nice footage. If only I could do that when on a shoot IRL haha

Really enjoyed this video and, like a previous poster mentioned, the soundtrack is great!

Any chance of a list of the songs?

Cheers =)

Wow. Shocked
I'm not interested in sov warfare and have no stake in it, but that was seriously impressive to have been simulated and captured, enough so to be a damned good piece of official advertisement for this game imho. You even had individuals making a difference (HERO BUBBLER!) as well as multiple hundreds of people having several simultaneous battles on the same field.

Side note: I wonder how much easier it would be on the system if missiles who's target is no longer on the same patch of grid didn't persist flying off until max range as calculated per each firer's skills.

You can easily speed it up either in youtube or in VLC if you download the vid :)

I did start editing with the vid much more speeded up, but I move the camera quite a lot so it gets confusing. The vid was really to show people how it was to be there :)

edit: Oh well.. I thought you could speed it up in youtube.. hmm

I liked this vid for the pure reason it showed that CCP have actually managed to get the time-dilation working well. I haven't had a chance to experience it so thanks for uploading this vid bud.

Initially I thought the same, and it's nice to see eve running the way it did 4 years ago, but I've watched it a couple times now and it seem to be a bit of everything. So many bubbles and missiles. Somewhat hypnotic.

It's raw meaning you can clearly see what's happening - so many people add effects for the sake of it rather than because there needed. It's also nice that no one shot the cameraman :p

*cough*blues above low standing/outlaw in your overview*cough*

Tedium and difficulty are not the same thing, if you don't realize this then STFU about game design.

My overview pretty much need a total re-do, yea Big smile The overview taps don't work at all haha
It's been in bad shape for a while, but as you see in the vid, I am in no rush fixing it as we have some pretty good broadcast ladies in our fleets.

Absolutely awesome! There are some truly fantastic shots in there and I thank you for taking (having) the time to move the camera around a bit.
My only wish would have been that you had removed brackets (I realized they are needed some time but still) and perhaps turned on the turret effects instead, your HW seemed to be able to handle it.

And god help me, Drake's may be an annoyance but I cant stop loving a good missile spam, there is something truly mesmerizing about it!
One of the favorite shots is about 7minutes in where two "balls" of red's warps in shortly after each other and the missiles just grows out of them like a cloud of death.

Also kudos for Juno Reactor. We like him.
