Crossing Zebras Episode 61

We’re back! Xander is joined by regular hosts Jeg, HVAC and Taka for another episode of the premiere Eve Online podcast – CCP Certified! We mix things up a little from the usual ‘latest patch / 0.0 news’ episode with some discussion on our favourite hulls in Eve and why pilots gravitate to certain ships. In part two we get around the the latest going-ons in Fozziesov and the level of communication between CCP and the playerbase these days. Oh and some Justin Timberlake of course… Crossing Zebras Episode 61.mp3 DREKAR_TCU (0:32) Introductions Why We Fly What We Fly… – Why do pilots have favourite hulls? What are the CZ favourite hulls and why? (27:03) Fozziesov – There’s a new dev blog out listing some changes to the original new sov rollout.

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.

  • Xander you had some potentially entertaining questions for the panel at the start of the podcast, but unfortunately you have to actually ask those questions of someone who is actively playing the game. Maybe try again when you have Niden or some other panelists who play Eve. As for the second half of the podcast – well, I guess I should know by now to just stop listening once the bittervets get all salty.

      Shots fired 😀

    • Longdrinks

      Getting this worked up over skins lol

    • Saint Michael’s Soul

      I agree. Xander’s enthusiasm was falling on salted ground; Good questions were being batted back by a wave of bitterness. It’s a shame, as I miss the pre CSM days of CZ where relentless excitement was the order of the day.

      It seemed forced in many ways, like you had to made a deadline and didn’t care about which warm bodies you collected to talk to. Hard to have a good conversation on ongoing changes with two people who don’t log into the game and a bitter vet who likes to exhale in smug satisfaction every time he makes a point good or otherwise.

      Take some advice from the bitter vet though. Don’t cling to old favorites just because you started with them, they are tools to be used. It’s up to you to pick out the best tools for the job.

      Bring back Jeg when he’s back playing, the other two…

    Sorry Xander but your normally interesting podcast fell flat on it’s arse this time.

    Perhaps it’s about time you considered hosting en Eve podcast with people who actually play Eve? Jeg and HVAC are a complete waste of time and clearly couldn’t give a shit about any of the questions you asked them

    • Fat Elvis

      took the words out of my mouth

  • GrouchyOldGamer

    Swift action taken it seems

    I was thouroughly disapointed with this podcast and had to turn it off 3/4 through. Xander did an excellent job as host…that being said, may I suggest you find guests that won’t shit on your show and actually give a fuck about answering some of your quetions. Either that or fuck having guests on at all if this is the kind of crap content they provide your podcast with. If the questions were not outright ignored, they were shutdown with insults about your show. Very disapointed…
