Quality content, regardless the medium, should be celebrated. Too often, hard work is overlooked for no other reason than the information overload that the internet provides. That’s where FW’s Video Spotlight comes in. Every Thursday, we’ll post a “video of the week” that was produced by the intrepid capsuleers plowing the space lanes of New Eden. See an awesome propaganda video? A crazy recap of fleet action? A tutorial for those just breaking in to factional warfare? Something else EVE-related?

By now, everyone has heard about the epic fight that took place in B-R5RB, both inside the game and out. The fight took place between N3/PL and the CFC/RUS coalitions and amounted to a staggering 11 trillion isk worth of damage, roughly equivalent to $300,000-$330,000 USD in PLEX value. The fight was so catastrophic and monumental that CCP created a permanent memorial to the battle in the system. The following video is a player made video showcasing the “floating necropolis of decaying space hulks.” While not faction warfare related, this incident was so huge in the EVE universe that I feel it deserves a spotlight here for people to see. It truly makes faction warfare feel small in comparison. You can also see an impressive infographic below the video as well, created by Elena Melkan.
