Hey Guys,

Just finished listening to ep 9 and wanted to say great job.

I’m an ’09 player who recently returned after nearly 2yrs off and your podcast was one of the first I stumbled across upon my return.  It’s great see the enthusiasm of people such as yourselves contributing to the great community that is the EVE player base.

As someone who missed a lot of stuff in the last couple of years, your podcast and website has been invaluable in helping me blow out the cobwebs, and get my head around all the changes.  I also find your love for the game infectious and it has helped me reinvigorate my approach to the game.Keep up the great work.

iTunes 5 Star Reviews:

Suzuki Uta – Kira and the lonely truck driver are awesome. Best Eve podcast ever! As soon as I listen to an episode, I can’t until the next one. Keep up the great work Proto, Kira, and everyone at The Neocom.

Cap’n Nail – I’ve only been playing Eve about 2 weeks, and I’ve become obsessed. This podcast gets me through the downtime between logins when real life calls. I love the newbro orientation and how much you all care about the community and helping people like me get started in Eve. Also, much love to Otto, Cyrillian, and Roedyn. I feel like they don’t get enough praise for how funny they are. I enjoy the rapport between The Neocom crew and it keeps me coming back. Keep up the great work!

  • EVE Online has a contentious and nasty environment not just because of the mechanics that encourage self-serving competition but also because the studio behind the game actively encourages players to be cutthroat and rewards members of the community who do so. The punishments given to offending players tell players what the designers want the game to be, so it falls on the side of the studio to determine what sort of environment they ultimately want to encourage.”



Special Segment: Lanctharus and the AIEU Diplo School

To allow the line members who usually are not even aware of the various mechanisms, cultures, relationships and agreements that the guys on top make that affects their game play and allow them to cast a critical eye on these actions so that they can analyze and synthesize for themselves and not solely rely on a SotA, Sotc, rare leaked audio recordings or allegedly biased EVE new sites for all their information.
