...do some people have too much time on their hands?

The Battle of B-R5RB was the largest and bloodiest in the history of warfare. More than 20 million soldiers were killed and more than 600 warships—some of them kilometers long and capable of destroying lesser vessels with a single shot—destroyed in a battle that raged for 22 hours.

At issue was a distant space station, a small but vital staging area that may be a turning point in a war that has since October pitted two massive alliances in a fight for galactic supremacy.

This battle occurred within the virtual world of the popular roleplaying game Eve Online, yet it required the careful planning, ruthless determination and good fortune of, say, the invasion of Normandy.

I spend my "game" time with Spider Solitaire... and Doom, of course (playing levels I created which make Doom and all the other variant levels look like kindergarten).

Great for kids, used to love gaming as a wee lad. I made sure to go outside too though.

I'd read about this and was thinking the same. These mmporg games tend to be "buy to win" or invest a lot of your time getting to where you'd like to be. Can't say I'm inclined to invest the time.

Used to love Frontier Elite back in the day though and will probably buy the download when it's released.
