The Video shows the computergame Battle of "B-R5RB", an Space Battle fought in The Massively multiplayer online role-playing game "Eve Online". The in-game costs of the losses totalled an real-world value of $300,000. The Computer components to show the video are placed opened on a wheeled stretcher-like a "sick patient". To keep the video going the computer components are in need to be cooled by try ice- otherwise the video stops and a blue screen is shown. This is about how such virtual world battles are "kept alive" and the values which can be reached in money costs as in energy consumption through them.
