Crossing Zebras Episode 25

 

The NUMBER ONE PODCAST IN ALL OF EVE ONLINE AS CERTIFIED BY CCP is back! Xander managed to get off the oil rig and spend a couple of hours chatting about all that is happening in the universe that is New Eden. After a series of episodes which have all run long featuring luminaries from Eve politcs, media and CCP themselves, we’re taking the chance to strip things back again to just Jeg and Xander, shooting the shit on stuff that is interesting to us.

There’s a heap of stuff to get through this episode including some very sad news about Lost in Eve, some interesting gossip doing the rounds regarding Jade’s other project, Li3 Federation, we pull apart what has been going on down in Thunderdome Delve, spend a wee bit of time on the ever-evolving metagame in Dust 514 and round things off with a wee mention of the upcoming expansion, Odyssey.

Introductions

Lost In Eve – The sad news has been announced by Jade that Lost In Eve has finally come to an end after many years of being a key community touchstone. We discuss just how important to the community LiE was and the legacy it leaves behind.

Li3 Federation – …and part of the reason LiE had to come to an end is because of Jade’s involvement with Li3. Some interesting gossip is doing the rounds about how Li3 is changing their financial infrastructure. We discuss whether this is another slip-up in the short but dramatic history of Li3.

Thunderdome Delve – For time immemorial, Delve has been the one place in nullsec where you had a good shot at getting a fight. That is never more true than now as TEST attempt to hold back the combined invading forces of NCdot, GSF and PL continue to bang on the door of 1-SMEB without gaining entry.

The Evolution of Dust 514 – Dust is now out of beta and with some of the changes to the rules including how Planetary Conquests actually work in practise, the world of Eve Online creeps every more darkly down to the planet surfaces. And Dust players don’t appear to be too happy about this…

Odyssey – People have asked us to cover Odyssey at length but it’s been done to death elsewhere by people far more qualified than us. Nevertheless, if you want all the hard facts on the latest Eve Online expansion, I highly recommend you check out this here URL – http://neural-boost.com/odyssey

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.
