Crossing Zebras Episode 27

 

Jeg is having to deal with real life at the moment leaving Xander having to rustle up a couple of guest presenters. Who better than the awesome community double-header of the beautiful Sindel Pellion and the awesome Roc Wieler! Plenty to talk about this week as we talk about the current discussion on porn linking which appears to have spread like wildfire through the blogs and podcasts, we discuss what makes the Eve community so special and finally, we dissect the ongoing war in Fountain between TEST and the CFC with some very interesting new updates. On top of that, we have a very exciting new Crossing Zebras announcement!

Introductions

Pornfleet – The community has been rife recently with discussion about linking porn in fleet chat and whether this is serious issue that needs to be dealt with or just some bored mindless fun. Roc, Xander and Sindel pull apart this interesting debate to try and get to the bottom of the matter

(30:02)

What’s special about the Eve community? – It’s all well and good us telling you that the Eve community is this magnificent beast. It’s another thing to break down the constituent components to explain exactly why. With two pillars of the community in Roc and Sindel, we attempt to do exactly that

(1:03:05)

The War in Fountain – Since Xander has been offshore, the release of Odyssey and the subsequent moon distribution has caused war to spring forth in Fountain with CFC staking a claim to TEST space. The fights have been fast and furious. With some huge updates hours before we recorded, we discuss how this one could potentially end up

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.

    Regarding pornfleets, CCP could easily curb it with literally no more resource expenditure, if they thought it was a big issue; make it a 1-month ban instead of 72 hours. Obviously extreme, but I’d bet it would slow it down a bit.

    Beyond that, I agreed with both guests’ opinions. I think it’s an unacceptable culture. Frankly, I was surprised to learn that it even happened in EVE, because it certainly didn’t in World of Warcraft… or LoL or TF2 or any other game I’ve played.

  • Reticenti

    I was at fanfest, and I agree, everybody in RL was really fun and great to spend time with! I wish I could have met you all while I was there.

    Any commends about CCP trolling everybody by having everybody see each other naked at the blue lagoon??

  • Reticenti

    I do have to say, I did run across one group of players at fanfest, at a bar, that I just had to walk away from because they were so offensive in general. For the first time ever, I want to start a fight at the bar. Other than that, everybody was really fantastic! 🙂 I actually feel bad admitting that because the city, local people, gamers, and CCP staff were really all fantastic people

    You bastard! I had to pause the episode and go listen to Rock DJ on youtube! I will have my revenge!
