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!

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.

    Holy shit, so close to a full house in CZ bingo; minutes, somer, Sindell – so close.

  • Heraklion

    Hearing Xander and AC co-hosting was good. I listen to DoW too but hearing both opinions worked really well. Good episode. Maybe you could get other guest podcasters on in future. Nothing against Jeg, obviously….

  • Fuck iTunes

    Why can’t I download on my Android anymore? Your going to lose listeners if we are forced to use iTunes!

  • hellyan

    I gotta say something serious, you will probably not believe me, but it is the truth:

    My favourite thing while working out is listening to your podcast. I must have lost more than 20kg the last 6 or 7 months that way. First thing before warm up is to look for a new episode, if there’s nothing new the workout is shit.

    Trust me, nothing beats doing push ups or bench presses while listening to you guys.


    I tried other podcasts, but nothing works. Tried voices, tried declarations, tried all the new ones that popped up lately, nothing. It’s not the same. You really must be the best podcast “certified by CCP”, of course.

    It may sound like a joke, but I am 100% serious.
