Crossing Zebras Episode 33


Another day, another episode of the Eve Online podcast you all love and adore featuring none other than famous capsuleers, Xander Phoena and Jeg Elsker, you lucky, lucky people you. We have a very special guest this week, the awesome Reza Najafi who joins us to talk about Eve Bet and being the CEO of PL training wing, Sniggwaffe. Don’t worry, 33 is a wee bit shorter than the behemoth that was 32 but we still find time to talk about CCP’s PLEX for Good campaign, the Stratios Emergency Responder, Fanfest 2014, Rubicon first thoughts, some cool shoutouts and the winner of the competition from the last episode (phew)!

Eve Bet – We sit down with one of the guys behind Eve Bet, Reza Najafi, to discuss what the site is about, where it could go in the future, how they are supporting the community and his thoughts on the recent RMT issue that has shook the community.


PLEX for Good – In the light of recent events in the Philippines, CCP has started a PLEX for Good campaign to allow players to donate to the international appeal. We highly recommend you contract any spare PLEX to the in-game character CCP PLEX for Good. Some players are speculating that there may be a Stratios Emergency Responder in it for you…

Fanfest 2014 – Tickets for Fanfest 2014 are now on sale! We sit down to discuss why you pretty much have to go because it is the best thing ever. Even though Xander isn’t. And Reza is 🙁

Rubicon First Thoughts – Rubicon is now live on TQ. We’ve had a chance to play with the new changes and ships so talk about how the new expansion translates into raw gameplay.


What We Are Up To In Game


Congrats to our competition winner Primus Fortune! You can see his glorious artwork above and he will be receiving one PLEX in reward for his sterling efforts. – At last you can get your own Crossing Zebras merchandise! The guys over at have done some amazing custom artwork t-shirts for us so I highly recommend going and checking them out and get yourself kitted out in the coolest clobber in all of Eve Online!

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.
