B-R: The FC Perspective


A full transcription of this audio is available here

Everyone in Eve Online right now is talking about the largest fight in the game’s history that occurred on the 28th and 29th of January in B-R. The two key FCs involved in the fight were Lazarus Telraven from Goonswarm and Manfred Sideous of Pandemic Legion.

I grabbed them both for a chat so we could talk through the events leading up and during the fight together then break down how this changes 0.0 warfare and politics going forward.

About the author

Xander Phoena

The good looking, funny, intelligent member of the team, Xander set up Crossing Zebras with Jeg in April 2012 mainly because he was talking too much about Eve on his other podcast. Playing the game for almost five years, Xander still has absolutely zero clue about how to actually play Eve but somehow still manages to talk a good game.

  • Petya G

    Great Interview…

  • Poetic Stanziel

    Not really the largest fight. The most expensive fight, certainly, though.

    • Homophobic John

      Definitely the longest. Probably ranking for largest if you count in all the factors (other systems).

    • hurfdurf

      While B-R never came close to the numbers of 6VDT or HED, partially due to the fact it was entirely unplanned and happened during a weekday (and with less load on purpose by the FCs to lower lag this time), I’d hazard a guess that once you factor in the rotation of fleet members of all TZ’s throughout the close to 20 hours the fight lasted + the adjacent ops in closeby systems, it could probably give them a run.

  • MACTEP sends his regards

    Holy shit this interview is awesome. Kudos to the FCs and kudos to you guys running this awesome site, keep doing your stuff.

  • Bla

    Was in Laz his fleet. He is a hero ๐Ÿ™‚

  • HVAC Repairman

    Laz owns. He doesn’t get the same attention from the community as Vee and Boat do, but the dude is baller. I’ve never seen an FC at the top of their game like he was yesterday, and that shit is even more impressive once you factor in the stakes. Also props to Manny for also being baller.

  • LV_dicedealer

    The FCs and Military Directors from all parties involved in this incredible display of power and strategy deserve a big ‘Thank You’ from the rest of EvE!

    As an aside: CCP, get these guys on stage at FanFest and let them run through a presentation along with a QnA! That should knock out about 4 hours on one day ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Powersv2

    It’ll take them 2 weeks to replace the titans.

  • DubbaYooArr

    great interview, props to CFC/RUS and N3PL o7 o7

    nice interview thanks. its so fun to watch the rank and file tear each other apart, but just like here on earth….the leadership on both sides share friendship and camaraderie

  • Zakn

    Great Episode Xander, really outdid yourself with this one. Thanks Manny and Laz for being honest and not trollish.

  • Brilliant listen. Manny & laz both come off really well in it. Hearing from the folks behind events like this is always a joy.

  • Red Orchestra

    This is god damn good. Hearing those who stood behind this event is amazing.

  • arpzz

    Brilliant interview, good guys on both sides. Nice one ๐Ÿ˜‰
