Crossing Zebras Episode 13


Jeg’s back! Unshackled from the ties that bound him to a sun lounger on some beautiful foreign isle, he rejoins Xander to discuss a suite of different topics.

The first and foremost of which is the untimely and incredibly sad passing of Sean ‘Vile Rat’ Smith. We both ask that if you have a little so spare, you point your browser to the YouCaring page which has been set up. All proceeds from this will go to Sean’s family to help them through this incredibly difficult time and every little helps.

Other than this, the usual gauntlet of discussion points follow including an exciting null-sec war front in the north, a not-so-exciting one in the south, defections & political manoeuvrings and off-grid boosting.

RIP Sean ‘Vile Rate’ Smith


T2 Destroyer Renders – Unofficial renders have been made available from the test server. We have a quick look at them and try to work out what they could tell us about the final ship specs

War in the North and South – War continues apace in null-sec with CFC fighting NCDot and Black Legion in the north and HBC taking on SoCo in the south. We take a look at the situation in both fronts currently and how the two differ


Defections – Some key parties have made some rather big moves from SoCo to HBC this week. We discuss who has moved, what their potential motivations were and what this could mean in the long term

Off-Grid Boosting – Every man, dog and blogger in Eve has been discussing this in the last few days. Seems only right that we should throw in our two cents
