coverage fire

Yesterday was of course a significant day in the history of New Eden, with Band of Brothers being very cleverly – and literally – dismembered by GoonSwarm over the course of just a few short hours. I won’t be adding to the facts, or the conjecture, suffice to say that for what has been a rather anti-climactic end (or rebirth) for EVE’s arguably most successful alliance, is also an event utterly gripping to witness from the sidelines.

The reason for this post is to put a shout out to EVE Radio and their coverage yesterday, which was thoroughly professional in virtually every aspect of its execution. It was wonderful that they managed to scoop comments from The Mittani and Dianabolic, even better that they had the two alliance cheeses sparring live on air a little later on. With correspondents flying into Delve it added immeasurably to the drama, and while it was at times understandably chaotic, veteran DJ FunkyBacon  held it all together wonderfully.

Sorry if this sounds crawly, but I was genuinely glued to my speakers throughout the evening, mostly because of events, but also because of the quality of the coverage. Great stuff. I shall be tuning into the Baconator more often from now on, you can be sure of that.

The download of the show in question can be found here.

  1. Gripping it is.

    Would you be in favor of CCP changing the mechanism the Goons used to disband the alliance in favor of it taking multiple people to do it?

  2. It was surprising that they were so quick to get people on both sides of the issue on the show, and I agree, it was done very professionally.
