Today we dive into the weird world of Abyssal space, guided by game developer, CCP Rise. We talk about the space, some of the design principals that went into it and the new ships and rewards. We also get slight hints on what CCP is up to, especially when it comes to a booster for skill injectors. We also review Initiatives attack on Hard Knocks – Fort Knocks. Best of all Elise Randolph joins the ranks of TIS regulars. We’ll see more of him! You might notice some sounds and music in the background – sound good? Let us know....

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?
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.
Killah Bee (NC.) and Tuzy (GSF) join the TIS crew to talk about Pandemic Horde’s move to Geminate and Triumverate’s withdrawal from Insmother. Structures 2.0 leads to the mass destruction of citadels in wormhole-space, while players from all security sectors try the Guardian’s Gala event. Find out who CCP T0rfifrans was and why he left CCP after 19 years. Finally, TIS introduces their official website.
