Crossing Zebras Episode 16


Another episode hits the airwaves and once again, as tradition dictates, we are massively late! Honestly, what with Xander now working offshore, look for CZ to happen more like once every three to four weeks going forward – fortnightly is a little optimistic. However, the gap since last episode has left us with plenty to discuss including the launch of Retribution, the CSM Winter Summit, CCP’s festive gifts to the player base, the finish of the first Eve cash tournament, the New Eden Open and the launch of FanFest 2013 proper with tickets now on sale.

Retribution begins – The long-awaited winter launch has been deployed. We discuss exactly how smooth the roll-out was and the potential long-term ramifications


CSM Winter Summit – CSM7 took the opportunity to host a round table to allow the player-base to ask them some questions before they headed off to Iceland for the Winter Summit. We discuss some of the key questions asked

CCP Christmas Gifts – It’s that time of year when CCP shower us all in bountiful pressies. Can you guess what they are this year?


New Eden Open – The first ever Eve cash tournament has now been consigned to the history books. Was it a success or not?

FanFest 2013 – Tickets are now on sale and Jeg and Xander already have theirs!


What are we up to in game?

PLEX Competition – Congrats to Serith Ellecon who got closest to the correct total of items in Tardisbox’s bag (59) with a guess of 42. Honourable mention goes to Nocture Prime who also guessed 42 but after Serith. Jeg will be contacting you in game to contract you a PLEX Serith! The picture is below for reference all you non-believers!
