"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.
