Crossing Zebras Episode 49

 
So in CZ48, we made some educated guesses as to what may be in the CSM9 Summer Summit Minutes. In CZ49 Xander is joined by Bam Stoker from Eve Down Under and Eve Bet, Dirk Action from Pandemic Legion and, of course, HVAC Repairman to discuss a certain dev blog that confirms some of the stuff CSM discussed during the Summit. This is pretty much the most exciting time to be involved in 0.0 for years so it makes good sense to discuss it at length. We also spend some time discussion some of the huge player events that are happening at the moment as well as the winner of the three PLEX we had to give away from last week!

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.

    Good show, but too many “fucking” tossed around. Sounded like you just learned to swear and couldn’t stop themselves. Out of place in an otherwise good show. Sorry if that seems negative.

    Bram (aussie) was pretty good. I liked his honesty – unusual.

    Hopefully host will set a better tone nest time. – GL

    My only comment about the rage is that it feels like the Nerf first that it is an attempt to vastly change null without the secondary changes that shake up the structure grind.

    I am also very concerned because it is a giant bundle of changes in a world where they could easily phase it in. For example the cooldown could be a first change and be gentle at first. This would let us dip our toe and make more sense about the effects.

    I will be honest and say that I am mostly looking for the rest of the changes. This change doesn’t thrill me, and I hope the other changes will create more change in the Nullsec metagame.

    PSA: I was never against these changes. What i did not like was:

    (a) The CSM was not involved in this as good as it could, which was confirmed pretty much right away. It took about an hour for people to find these example what all is wrong in the math and logic behind some of these changes, literally 101 mistakes.

    (b) For smaller entities this changes will make their live miserably harder at least for a cpl months while PL adapts. There is no reason to push people out of the empty null or push them large groups.

    Also fucking Dirk, I play EVE every day. I just don’t call being undocked in Amamake on the Ossogur gate or in a BLOPS on station fun entertainment, so I don’t do that.
