It looks as though another war is brewing for the space sandbox, as last week saw a “brawl of biblical proportions” at UALX-3, where around 4,000 players engaged in high-stakes combat. The fight threw Goonswarm and the Imperium against the Pandemic Legion and allies, turning this battle into a grudge match that came out of 2016’s World War Bee player event.
The battle at UALX-3 didn’t go well for Pandemic Legion, which found itself trapped and unable to retreat for a while. It took several days before players could evacuate their capital ships from the blockade that the Imperium set up.
Polygon posits that this battle is the start (or continuation) of a war that will grow even larger considering the sheer size of the organizations involved.
