News and Fanfest Review

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.
