It basically details the robbery and destruction of properties worth over 30 BILLION ISK (the ingame currency) as part of a paid 'contract'.
The target corporation was infiltrated five months ago in a carefully considered operation.
Just to give an idea of the scale of this 1 million ISK = approx 50p on Ebay...
Therefore 30 billions ISK = approx. £15,000 of real life cash (if capitalised on)
The battleship which was destroyed as part of this operation is a pretty unique item that requires over TWO MONTHS of intensive missioning/work to obtain. It alone is worth several billions.
So is this the biggest in game robbery in history?
And is this part of the game or just griefing?
Either way a pretty interesting story I think...
