EVE Online is a massive multi-player online role playing game. In other words, it's a game where there are no rules, just a galaxy where you build space ships, form alliances and go to war. And the war stories of EVE players are remarkable, like the Bloodbath of B-R5RB, where over $350,000 worth of digital spaceships were destroyed in a single day. So why do people invest so much time and money into EVE, to the point where they're living a double life in a virtual galaxy?
