Episode 18 – Fraternity leader Noraus asses the situation as enemies gather at his walls. TEST and the new, yet unnamed, Russian block are held back by a nonaggression pact that ends in 3 weeks.

This week on Talking in Stations, we look down South – in the region of Immensea – where there have been some strategic alliance movements. We will talk with Vily from TEST and Garst Tyrell from Triumvirate. Are these activities the opening shots to something much bigger? In our second half, we look at the diversity of CSM 2018 and what it means for the soul of Eve. Is Eve missing out on opportunities for player engagement and interaction because most of the CSM candidates are very homogeneous in their thinking?
The election results are in for CSM13. The council of stellar management, CSM for short, has concluded with a live-streamed broadcast of the winners. Voting tallies were released a day later. This is the 13th time in 10 years that players of EVE online have elected a select group of representatives to be their voice at the table with CCP, the makers of EVE online, plan new features for the game. Thirty thousand votes were cast for 48 candidates. Ten of those candidates become full CSM members. Seven of the 10 were incumbent CSM members. Of the three new arrivals,...
This week on Talking in Stations we will be talking with ProGodLegend with Test Alliance Please Ignore as the clear winner of the conquest for stations. We will be looking back at the takeover of Pandemic Legion sovereignty in Providence with TEST FC Farmstink and the tale of Lumio Tilavine – the ‘hero’ of Providence. The legendary corp Ushra’Khan receives a permanent monument in space in their ancestral home of 9UY and Harvey Skywalker comes on to discuss his article ‘The Sack of Providence’ and what’s next for Pandemic Legion.
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 meet Wind Spirits, a Chinese leader of Fraternity and the Winter Coalition – a coalition of Asian corporations. Jinn’Taan joins us as we explore the fascinating differences in culture between east and west. Eastern players are paid real money to be fleet commanders and approach the game as athletes, while the western players rely heavily on the meta (out of game advantages) to win wars. Two very different approaches to EVE Online.
