The Eve Online 0.0 Experiment - Post 061 - Titanic (Part 2)
I was still attempting to recover from the incredible excitement of the events that had transpired earlier that day. My brain was struggling to process the amazing sights that I had witnessed.
I can honestly say that it was such a vision of true beauty, that in the entire history of art, poetry, music and all things sweet and romantic, nothing in the long-reaching span of humanity had ever come close to the perfection that I had witnessed.
It was truly beautiful:
The titan wasn't too bad either...
Later that evening I attended a secret location somewhere mysterious in ASCN space, and was to be part of an incredible event that was to be the icing on the very cake of my crazy adventure:
A tremendous and overwhelming sense of excitement built up inside of me, as the realisation dawned on me that I was to become one of the first people in EVE ever to be brutally murdered by a titan. I suddenly felt like I was a young child once more, filling with wonder and glee at the prospect of the monumental event that was just minutes away...
I took a moment to thank CYVOK for the earlier events:
The next 120 seconds seemed like an eternity, almost as if the strands of time themselves had deliberately elongated, in an agonising stretching of temporal perception.
A million emotions flooded through my nervous system, as tiny electrical impulses of delight stimulated areas of my mind that brought forth senses of unsurpassed elation and joy.
The moment had arrived
A loud sound filled the "air" and my entire screen suddenly went pure brilliant white, completely blinding me with its sheer dazzling starkness.
The whiting effect must have lasted for at least 5-10 seconds, during which I sat stunned, in total awe, and unable to speak for the duration.
As the light faded into the nothingness of space, I looked around me to see the remnants of most of the ships in the area being simultaneously destroyed with a loud POP:
Suddenly, it was all over....
For a long while, there was a stunned silence amongst the very small group of people who were present in Local at this secret test-base, and after managing to regain my composure I then learned how CYVOK had brought about the construction of this truly incredible ship:
After being somewhat surprised by this revelation, I decided to change the subject and quickly enquired about the training involved in becoming the sole pilot of the most incredible vessel in EVE:
It was most definitely an expensive and arduous labour of love, and it had certainly had gone down in history as being the most incredible achievement to date.
I then noticed that my EVEMAIL was flashing, and I nervously and excitedly opened it to discover the official confirmation that I had not just spent the past 15 minutes in a dream:
*Location deleted to respect confidentiality:
It was now official. I had truly become one of the first ever players in EVE to have been mercilessly and bitterly ravaged at the hands of the most gargantuan brute in existence. I could not believe my eyes.
I had not been number one, although seventh was more than good enough for me. It had been a true honour and a great privilege to be present at this event and the entire experience had completely made my day.
The wonders of this EVE universe never cease to astonish me, and I can only begin to dream of what yet awaits me, as I continue my flights of fancy into this alluring and enchanting world of wonder.
