Crossing Zebras Episode 47

 
Well due to Xander being on an oil rig for three weeks, it has been nigh on a month since the last episode of the Number One Podcast In Eve Online History CCP Certified. We make up for that with a bumper episode this time round with not one, not two but THREE epic guests. No Jeg but instead we have ATXI winner, ATXII podium placer and CZ writer/financier extraordinaire, Forlorn Wongraven, ATXII commentator Apothne and some dude by the name of HVAC Repairman. Plenty to get through this week including the entire Somer situation from a couple of weeks back and how CCP handled it, ATXII from the perspective of a pilot from the favourite team to win and a commentator and some general chit-chat about Crius, Oceanus and the future of Eve development including the thorny issue of 0.0. Crossing Zebras Episode 47.mp3 The-Big-Four   (0:32) Introductions Somer 2.0 – Somer had a wee go at RMTing again and within four days, a shitstorm kicked off and then was dealt with swiftly and decisively by CCP. We talk about what happened, why it happened, how it was fixed and what it could mean for similar scenarios in the future as well as the potential consequences for their dealings with third party sites in the future (28:51) ATXII – The 12th Alliance Tournament is now confined to the annals of history and what an AT it was. Who better to discuss it with than Forlorn from the PL team who had a very interesting month and Apothne who was plucked from obscurity to commentate for the event and was in Iceland the final two weekends. (59:03) Crius / Oceanus / 0.0 / Eve development – Bit of a catchall subject this one but we spend some time discussing CCP’s development strategy for Eve, the continuing discussion about the future of 0.0 and the health of Eve the game and CCP the company as a whole. What We Are Up To In Game Shoutouts Eve Nottingham Meet – As I mentioned in the show, the Eve Nottingham meet is this coming Saturday and myself, Jeg, Mangala and Apothne are all going to be there!

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.

    Great pod, bang on form chaps. Wish I could go along to the Nottingham meet, but the missuses birthday trumps Eve/Booze 🙁

  • Rondee

    About time, you lazy bastards! Just kidding, I love you and I missed you. <3

  • Dunk Dinkle

    Good to hear you all again. A little bit too much bittervet lately. Apothne is right, there is cool stuff going on every night. You need a little more non-bittervet POV.

    Lastly, there was no mention of Weed Galactus, logi pilots, or the minutes from the Summer CSM Summit. WTF?

    • Forlorn Wongraven

      Be a man and don’t have killmails for flying logis.

      • Dunk Dinkle

        Personally, I don’t want logi killmails. A waste in many ways, IMHO. My goal was to reflect the community ideas.

        I want things like ship type in broadcast, ability to drag from the overview to watchlist, and 100% on structures should mean no damage.
