This week on Talking in Stations we talk about an integral part of the life of an alliance in Eve Online; what do you do when someone kicks over your sandcastle. Whether it is oppressive neighbors or an internal culture meltdown, we look at three alliances that have gone through these processes and what they did to bounce back. We are joined with Sebastien Saintfrusquin from Circle of Two, Dunk Dinkle from Brave Newbies Inc, Sapporo Jones and Dran Arcana, alliance executor and head diplomat of Test Alliance Please Ignore, respectively. We also review what’s been going on in the...

This week on Talking in Stations we talk with three fleet commanders, Vily from TEST, Killah Bee from Northern Coalition. and InSTiiNK Loutte from Circle of Two as we look at a part of the war that isn’t glamorous and rarely makes the news. The grind of an attacker into settled space – the war of attrition – cloaking camping, hot dropping on rorquals and the battles for key parts of sovereignty infrastructure. Also we talk with Noisy Gamer on the latest security development out by CCP on RMT’ers.
This week on Talking in Stations, the Eve universe had an exciting week of GM shenanigans, the most talked about by far was the teleporting of botting super capitals to highsec space to be publicly executed by hordes of blood thirsty pilots. We also talked with Safoi of Templis Calsf and Corvus Onzo of The Mjolnr Bloc as these two pillars of Caldari Militia leave for other spaces. Finally, we talk with Apothne about the exciting conclusion of the Alliance Tournament and its future.
Here at Talking In Stations, we examine EVE Online from the perspective of a veteran player that has been active and influential for many years. Our goal is to break down the knowledge veterans have for newer players. Every so often we pull back and look at EVE from an outsiders view. In doing so, we gain perspective on EVE, meta-EVE, and virtual worlds in general.
This week on Talking in Stations we go to the south-east and look at the split of Red Menace Coalition as Dream Fleet gets reset by their head FC losing all their SOV in Cache in 48 hours. Red Alliance follows Imperium by setting standings with Legacy Coalition leaving DREAM FLEET fighting to hold onto what little space they have left. We look at EBOLA and their attempt to extort smaller groups in an eviction move but get a surprise fight when Unspoken join former Great Wildlands Conservation members to hold them off.
This week on Talking in Stations we sit down with Killah Bee, Asher Elias, Harvey Skywarker and Jay Amazingness looking at the conflict surrounding the destruction of the NC. Keepstar in X47L-Q.
Summary: This week on Talking in Stations we look at the cataclysmic precursor to the final timer on the NC Keepstar in X47L-Q. Three hundred and thirty Goonswarm titans including the first Molok to be lost jumped into the system against 300 Northerner titans with estimations of over 10 trillion isk lost on the field.
Artimus Albosa is joined by Dirk MacGirk and new panelist Bardghost Isu, guests Harvey Skywarker and Apple Pear to talk about ‘The Great Escape’ of Pandemic Legion and Holy Meteorite Coalitions supercapital force from their bubble camp in UALX-3 and all the controversy surrounding the metagaming of reddit opinion as to the true condition of those Supercapitals. We also pivot to the north and look to how the second front is shaping up and the significance of 2 dead Keepstars at the hands of The Imperium.
Events in this war are moving so fast; meme artists have trouble pinning a name on it. Last week we saw the Imperium move North and establish a Forward Operating Base. This week the war shifted South as Legacy Coalition tried to do the same. TEST anchored a Keepstar in UALX-3 and Pandemic Legion, with allies, responded with a massive show of force. Legacy escalated their call to arms and matched with an enormous navy of their own. The result was one of EVE’s most significant, most unpredictable battles – a battle that left PL trapped in the system.
