Crossing Zebras Episode 65


Been too long since we sat down to do this. Real life has kinda got in the way which meant it couldn’t happen. But recent events meant we couldn’t wait any longer. While visiting down in Aberdeen, Xander sat down in Jeg’s kitchen to record another episode of the premiere Eve Online podcast in a callback to the very early shows almost four years ago.

As you can imagine, with a nine week break since the previous episode, there’s plenty to get through.

From here the conversation meanders throughout a bunch of topics including:

Why people stop playing Eve and what can CCP do to stop it?

Why did TMC’s kickstarter go wrong?

Are the allegations of RMT unfounded and if not, what does this mean for CCP’s involvement?


As always, huge shout out to our amazing sponsors at Eve Bet who continue to support everything we are doing here at Crossing Zebras.

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.

      This is why they voted to stay sucking on the English teat, without us they are confused and lost.

    Xander, you need to let the man speak after asking a question. Other than that, good job.

  • Great to hear you guys again, particularly Jeg who normally just seems to get talked over when the more vocal guests are around. Good, thoughtful coverage of these issues and good to hear from you guys as the CZ founders. I wish more people thought through things like Jeg does here without rushing in for the meme-bite of the day. When I heard where you were going I nearly hit the fast-forward, but I’m glad that I listened through it.

    I couldn’t tell if you were trolling about Jeffs show or not, but you seemed bitter fam.

  • Saint Michael’s Soul

    Yay, missed you guys. Will download for commute home.
