The Talking in Stations Show - Conversations about EVE Online
This week on Talking in Stations, we look at the end of the roadmap for stations and outposts as they have finished their final transition into faction fortizars. We will look at the winners of the station grab and where years of loot will be sent via asset-safety. Our newest host, Artimus Albosa from Mercenary Coalition tells of the joint push of Northern Coalition and Mercenary Coalition into Querious and how they had hoped to affect the war in the North. Finally, Suitonia and Mistwarden bring us their guides to running the new abyssal space and what the new Triglavian...
This Memorial Weekend show invites two groups – Best of Us and Broadcast for Reps – one to provide support for veterans across the world through play Eve and providing support for those suffering from depression and just needing someone to talk to. Garst Tyrell talks to us about Triumvirate – after a massive play for the XIX evacuation super fleet, killed the DRF staging keepstar in 88A – and what the future holds for them. Finally, we look at the longtime whale hunting group of Eve, Bomber’s Bar, with guest Nova Valentis.
The news roundup was interrupted by the battle of C-LTXS one hour into the show. We switched to live coverage of the massive fight. Before that switch, we covered a lot of ground, including the fresh news that Sort Dragon’s Avatar had been picked off. The trap was set by Kun’mi (aka Odell) from Goonswarm. He talked us through what happened. Apothne, Jin’taan and Killah Bee discussed Providence and the DRF situation but expanded on the larger themes of alliances and their struggles.
On the Mother’s Day show, entitled “Fight for Providence Stations,” we heard from Fleet Commanders from both sides of a coming conflict in Providence region. Representing the defending side, Pandemic Legion (PL), was Elise Randolph, CEO of Habitual Euthanasia and Harvey Skywarker of Higher Than Everest. Elise is the nominal leader of PL, and Harvey is the former leader the closed alliance “The Culture.” On the opposing side, the invaders, Test Alliance Please Ignore (TEST) were represented by co-campaign commander Progodlegend. Progod is a storied FC from a group that initially grew out of Providence. This conflict is interesting because...
This “Mothers Day” show focuses on the dueling campaigns over the fate of Providence and the 74 stations contained in the region. Elise coins the name “Asher Boys,” Progodlegend calls Fraternity’s new leader a Trumpian, and Harvey Skywarker (the self-proclaimed “murderer”) tells us all about “Lumio en Tilavine.” We also meet real-life politician Brisc Rubal who’s commercial for CSM went viral. Mawderator talks ships and CSM too, and we meet a rising star in the FC world, Goonswarm’s WhisperQuetly who found himself commanding 150 pilots after only 6 months in EVE. Apothne steps in for Matterall as host.
We talk with Andie “Seagull” Nordgren, Exec Producer of EVE Online weeks before her departure from EVE. Over the last four years, Seagull has provided EVE with vision and the development pathway. She explains “Design for Participation” principals to how living in Iceland has affected her. Andie will be missed. Also, we ask Asher Elias to review the events in Deklein, Pure Blind, Fade regions.
We take a closer look at Into the Abyss expansion that will arrive on May 29th. Elise Randalph returns to discuss recent events in sovereign space and the surrounding areas. Ashterothi and Bardghost Isu take us into the Abyssal space gameplay where they describe the real world experience. Are they fast and fun? We’ll find out. Faction War makes an appearance as Caldari gain momentum against the Gallente. On the show: Matterall Ashterothi (Fed Up, Gallente faction war, broadcaster, EVE analyst) Carneros (Bastion) Guests: Elise Randalph (Pandemic Legion) Bardghost Isu (Bastion) Show Notes: News CCP Seagull Departure from EVE Online...
It has been a week of heavy development in and around EVE Online. Alliances in the north are faltering under attacks from the Goonswarm from the south. In the east, pressure on Drone Region Federation pushed them to retreat to just two regions Insmother and Cache. Opner Dresden from Mercenary Coalition fills us in on recent events. We catch up to Elise Randalph after his wonderful presentation on the history and lineage of Fleet Commanders in EVE. NoizyGamer talks about being backstage at Fanfest.
