Crossing Zebras Episode 34


Time for a HUGE episode of Crossing Zebras in which Xander and Jeg announce a brave new future for the site. Strap yourself in because it is going to get a little bumpy… As well as a couple of massive announcements for the site (not going to spoil them here – listen in!), we also talk World of Darkness layoffs, the CSM Summer Summit minutes (I know, right?), the New Eden Open II, CCP’s Advent Calendar and the recent Gentleman’s Agreement deployment.

CZ Announcement Part One – Not going to spoil this one here but it’s a biggie and we want to hear all your feedback on it once you have listened in!


CZ Announcement Part Two – And while Part One may be a little contentious, I’d imagine you are all going to be VERY excited about this announcement. I know Jeg and I are…

World of Darkness layoffs – CCP has announced some layoffs from the World of Darkness team based out of Atlanta. Here’s some conjecture about what that could mean for the future of the game


CSM8 Summer Summit minutes – We recorded on 13th December and the Summer Summit minutes still aren’t in the players’ hands. We have some very choice words to say about this situation

New Eden Open II – CCP has officially announced the second New Eden Open. We discuss some of the changes to the format and rules for the event in March

CCP Advent Calendar – CCP are getting into the spirit of Christmas by giving players lots of free stuff! You can get yours here

Gentleman’s Agreement deployment ends – Gents deployment to the Kalevala Expanse to fight with EMP has now come to an end. We discuss what went right and what went wrong

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.
