Titanomachy: Graveyard of Giants

Roll up, roll up. Come one, come all. Witness one of the true wonders of the EVE Universe.


On the 27th January 2014 a missed sovereignty bill in system B-R5RB set in motion events that would ultimately culminate in the most epic battle in online history. Used as a staging system by Pandemic Legion fleets during the Halloween War, the loss of sovereignty provided a unique opportunity for combined CFC/Russian forces to take the system, capture the station and trap hundreds of PL capital and sub capital ships and remove them from the ongoing war effort.

Due to the surprise nature of the loss of sovereignty PL/N3 fielded a much smaller supercap presence than usual. CFC/Rus forces used this opportunity to deploy the full might of their own capital fleet and soon the system was filled with hundreds of Titans and Supercarriers with a full supporting cast of Dreadnaughts, Carriers and sub-capitals.


After 12 hours of fighting and astounding losses PL conceded the field with both sides stunned by the sheer devastation they had inflicted upon each other.

Totals destroyed:

  • Titans – 75 (N3/PL lost 59 titans and CFC/DTF lost 16 titans)
  • Supercarriers – 13
  • Dreadnaughts – 370
  • Carriers – 123
  • And lots more smaller ships


In comparison, the previous record for largest single battle Titan losses was a tie between battles in “O2O” and “Uemon”, with 12 total Titans destroyed in each.


Estimated Value

  • 11 TRILLION ISK.
  • estimated approximately $300,000-$330,000 USD


Following the battle CCP decided a permanent memorial to this incredible event was needed and installed the ‘Titanomachy’ monument around the seventh planet in the B-R5RB system. Consisting of non-salvagable capital wrecks created using brand new Titan wreck models introduced with EVE Online: Rubicon’s 1.1release, the site allows players who are brave enough to make the journey, to visit the battlefield and marvel at the awesome scope of the destruction.
