Crossing Zebras Episode 53

 
After a break of around a month, Xander, Jeg and HVAC are back with another episode of the very best podcast in Eve Online history, CCP certified! And this time round the three of them are joined by a couple of very special guests. First up we have Endie from Goonswarm, one of the very best bloggers in the community, a Scotsman and a candidate for the CSMX elections. Joining him is none other than one of the most legendary FCs and theory crafters in the meta, and someone also standing for election in CSMX, Manfred Sideous of Pandemic Legion. And there is plenty to get through as well starting with the evolution of 0.0 since the Phoebe jump drive changes and how it may evolve with the new sov system we know is coming. We discuss how CSM9 has done over the past year as well as both Endie and Manny’s CSMX campaigns. Finally, Jeg goes over the second Eve Nottingham event that took part earlier in February. Sit back and enjoy!

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.

    Really enjoyed this one. I hope whatever they do with sov they end up making it not scale to the point that owning half of null sec isn’t worth it.

    • Endie

      I agree with that: what I’ve suggested elsewhere is that they look at the sort of mechanic that Civ uses where increasing the size of your empire ramps exponentially in cost but only geometrically in benefit, while allowing denser population. People say “but alt alliances!” but they said the same thing about the five-pos-per-system-per-day and almost nobody abused it. It will all be about implementation, and that is where the designers come in, but I would suggest that it scales even *worse* with tiny populations holding large areas to avoid alt-alliances.
