Crossing Zebras Episode 35


Hope you are all having a thoroughly awesome holiday season! Jeg had a particularly awesome work Christmas night out and was unable to make the record last night so joining Xander instead is legendary mercenary, CSM alumni and host of the delicious Declarations of War podcast, Alekseyev Karrde. Bit of a shorter this week but we manage to talk a little on CSM8 and the current minutes situation, Insidious Empire’s deployment to Vale, a nice bit of community trolling by DBRB and the largest wormhole fight in Eve Online industry. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!

CSM8 Half-term Scorecard / Minutes – We haven’t discussed CSM8 for a while on the ‘proper’ episodes of CZ. With a member of CSM7 hosting and CSM8 now halfway through their term, it feels like perfect timing to discuss how they are doing at this point. And, you know, the minutes

EMP deploy to Vale – Insidious Empire have confirmed that after an ongoing front against Gentleman’s Agreement in Kalevala, they are staying away from tidi in Curse and deploying to Gents’ home region, Vale


Boat Sunk? – Turns out DBRB is pretty good at trolling a huge percentage of the Eve Online community pretty successfully…

Largest WH fight in Eve history – For those of you who think you can’t have fun in WHs… This 120b ISK battle report may change your mind Shoutouts – You guys are reaping the rewards of our awesome news sponsors with some amazing weekly columns. Show your support by pointing your browser to Eve Bet and having a wee flutter! – 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!

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.
