This week on Talking in Stations marks the countdown to Eve Vegas, we are joined with longtime volunteer coordinator and this year’s player speaker Greygal and our very own Elise Randolph to give a rundown on what to expect during the Eve Vegas weekend. Also, Matterall speaks with Fraternity alliance executor, Noraus, on the culture of Chinese players in Eve Online as well as his plans for rebuilding after Winter Coalition’s exodus from the South.
On this busy news week, a full panel of guests including Brisc Rubal, NoisyGamer, RonUSMC, and Exonfang join Matterall and Elise Randolph to discuss the news buzzing around the cluster. Topics covered include the September Security and Economic Reports, comments on Ranger Regiment’s “acquisition” by Miss Rabbit, the unprecedented agreement between Amarr and Minmatar militia forces, Rote Kapelle’s ruse cruise on reddit, and retrospective on the Southern War between Legacy and Winter coalitions.
On this special episode, CCP Dopamine and CCP Goodfella join Matterall and Carneros to discuss the recent CSM Summit. The week long CSM summit, which occurs twice annually at CCP’s headquarters in Reykjavik, Iceland, is an opportunity for the player-elected Council of Stellar Management to meet with CCP and provide input and feedback on the ongoing development of Eve Online.
On this week’s show, the TIS Crew process what they heard last week from CCP Hellmar, CCP Falcon, and CCP Goodfella. They review July 2019 stats and compare them to July 2015-2018 stats. Squizz Caphinator joins to talk about the new experimental 2-hour delay to automatically-processed kills on zKillboard.com. Brisc Rubal joins the team for a full episode of discussions.

CCP Fozzie and a bunch of expert moon surveyors gather round to review how the moon material redistribution worked. Fozzie says high-sec and wormhole moon mining was higher than expected. We also talk about war-dec mechanics, the new launcher and the February patch – could this be the end of disconnects?
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.
