Spaceships in EVE Online can be bought by using in-game currency which is sold for real money. One missed bill payment has led to an estimated loss of $300,000.

One member of EVE Online’s team missed a payment needed to protect an area of the virtual world. The result was devastating with more than 100 Titan ships being destroyed. Being in alliance is important, and paying bills on time is crucial for keeping the alliance alive. The member in question is in the N3 coalition. Due to his missed bill payment, other alliances could attempt a complete takeover of a staging ground.
This was the biggest battle ever since EVE Online launched 10 years ago. More than 400,000 players were involved in the epic battle and numerous others were watching the live action. It is one of the most popular space simulation titles of the decade. At least until Star Citizen becomes available, as many agree that it would draw EVE’s players away.
As players rushed in to join the EVE’s battle, game servers started to struggle. There was still enough stability to cause massive destruction. "I'd be lying if I said our servers weren't sweating a bit,'' said EVE Online spokesman Ned Coker. "Allowing players free movement wherever they want in a game with over half a million players means for some pretty tricky technological requirements.''
In-game currency can also be gained by doing tasks so the $300,000 loss can be recovered without spending real money. Although it would take a long time this way. The epic battle got heated and losses were taken on both sides. You would think that this game encourages violence, though there are other aspects such as space trading which make EVE fun to play.
EVE Online is the most complete space simulation game where you pilot your ship through thousands of star system, seeking resources, chat with friends and battle for virtual land.
