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.
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.
