Crossing Zebras Episode 28


Another episode and I’m afraid, still no Jeg. He moved house this weekend and doesn’t have his new internet setup. This left me in somewhat of a quandary. In the comments of the interview I did with PL, Protoshell asked that we cover lowsec in an upcoming episode. Well there’s no time like the present! Joining me in the virtual booth for CZ28 are none other than two of lowsec’s brightest stars. First up we have legendary blogger, infamous pirate and the CEO of the latest craze in lowsec, Rixx Javix. Secondly, we have Senior Editor over at and another scourge of the skies, Marc Scaurus.

We discuss all things lowsec including why you should try it out, how it could be improved and how recent wars in 0.0 have affected it as well as plenty of talk on a very exciting Alliance Tournament XI.

Why lowsec? – Why should a pilot consider pointing a toon at lowsec to eke out a new career?

What can a pilot actually ‘do’ in lowsec in terms of a career or playstyle?

What can/should be done (if anything) to make lowsec more relevant?


Is lowsec working as intended?

How have recent wars in 0.0 affected life in lowsec?

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.

    very interesting episode, but who was breathing into the mic the whole time? 🙂 very annoying!

    • Scan

      Agreed. Great episode. But breathing into mic? Come on.

      • xanderphoena

        Apologies for the mic breathing! It wasn’t me as I was miles away from my mic so guessing it was Rixx or Marc. I didn’t hear it that badly in the edit but there we go. Hope you both enjoyed the episode anyway!

    My favourite thing is to put Zebras or Declarations and work out in the living room. Can;t beat that.

    • ProtoShell

      AYE! Workout in the living room! 😉

    Thanks Xander for making this episode. I was really interested in listening to the big guys of LowSec. Great show and professionally done, as always. I’m looking forward to the upcoming episodes!

    “faction warfare was better last year as it is now” bullshit. your whole argument that rats helped in the plex since you had to killed them is wrong since you didn’t have to kill them. Remember the gunless vigils orbiting plexes without shooting anything? That was last year. Today, you can actually plex with pvp ships if you WANT. Last year? good luck with that

    This really just reaffirms my opinion that lowsec is little more than pointless elitepvp dick waving.

    Re changes to low sec.

    I think there is a general lack of trust in the development team when it comes to low sec. It is… better… now, the beatings are only weekly, not daily, but people both have few (thought out) ideas on how to improve low sec, as well as there is little agreement on what would make low sec better. It is easy to envision lots of ways low sec could be made worse, but very few where it would end up better.

    So I think it is understandable most people would just rather CCP stay away from messing with low sec for now.

  • Niden

    Amazing episode, there are so many of us who live, fight and die in low sec and it’s much appriciated that we get some of the spotlight. Just as an example: during the hight of the Fountain war, the regions I live in (Black Rise/Placid, FW space), still had more kills. I’d like to see a special episode on FW! 🙂
    Probably the best EVE podcast out there, keep it up!
