HD 86: EVE Is Dying, Amirite?

EVE Is Dying Amirite
Hey High Drag Listeners!!

We’re back with a long awaited episode 86! We’ve actually starting farming for some help in the bullpen to keep these podcasts running even when (yours truly) isn’t available to be on. With that in mind, we’ve brought OpusMagnum into the fold and together with Ash, Kyle and myself, discuss some of the interesting newest bestest things that have been announced by CCP over the past couple weeks. Drone Swarm, the October Balance Pass and the modification of the harassment policy are just a couple of things we settle into for this episode! Yep, EVE is dying. Long live EVE!!

Man, it feels good to be doing this again!!

HD 85: Hero Logistics

Hero Logistics
Heya High Drag Listeners!!

Wow, not sure what was going on with my voice, but I was stoked when this recording took place. Coming off the first weekend of the Alliance Tournament and taking part in the A Band Apart team’s first two wins was amazing! Don’t take just MY word for it, even the announcers were happy with our performance! I had to do an episode with, what was undeniably, the heroes of the ABA run on Sunday. Our Logistics pilots! Watson couldn’t make it but Leonard sat down with Ash, myself and guests Dirk MacGirk and Rixx Javix to discuss the (supposed) war and more importantly, AT. No Yin of Fin this time so no ship fit for ya, but we did get some great conversation! Hope you enjoy.

HD 84: The Prodigal Son Returns


The Prodigal Son Returns

Heya High Drag Listeners!
Well, despite floods and broken hearts and scheduling, we managed to bring the boys in to record an episode that was way too long in the making. I wont spoil the episode but the CCP layoffs after Vegas 2017 unsettled me greatly to the point where I had to consider whether I wanted to continue playing. Bring on January 2018 and my house gets flooded, sending me into hotel exile for 3 months. During which, I didn’t have enough wifi to play. Now, I’m recovering from knee surgery back at home and I turn to my “mistress”, Eve.

A lot of this episode’s content is, quite honestly, old news. But it’s been on my mind since Vegas and I felt I really needed to get it off my chest. Ashterothi, Fintarue and The Judge join me for a walk down the layoffs and how they effected us. We also talk some positive with the Abyssal sites and how those bite sized bits of content could be just what the game needs. Felt good being able to do this. Hope you enjoy!!

HD 79: Eve Vegas Megasode

Eve Vegas Megasode
Hey there High Drag listeners! We have returned from Eve Vegas and drop this behemoth of an episode on you!! Ok ok, it’s more like a puffed up version but we had a full house this time around. Our discussion centers on the Eve Vegas experience and what we pulled away from it, in the event that you haven’t watched or listened to ANYTHING about it since. I will say that I really enjoyed this Vegas. I liked the Linq hotel more than Planet Hollywood. I loved Drai’s nightclub over the Parisian. And, I loved that this Vegas it felt like they gave us something rather than just repeating the dev blogs. Now, if anyone happens to find my voice, would you be so kind as to send it to me, please? Be sure to listen to the very end to hear Rahne and Kyle’s “bailing early” shout outs!!

Hope you enjoy!!

HD 78: Lifeblood Judgement

Lifeblood Judgement

Hey there, High Drag Listeners!

Gotta say, I had the best intentions of having this out a while ago. Down side was, I had this little accident. For those who follow me on Twitter, you say pics of my beloved 4 Runner after having been tail ended at freeway speed when I was stopped in traffic. Spent a few hours in the emergency room and have been dealing with a fair amount of discomfort but I’m doing much better. However, being down a vehicle has made my life a bit more complicated. However, I have a replacement. I am doing pretty well. Next stop, Vegas!

We recorded this after that little CO2 coup performed by the Judge. He was meant to come on the show (and we’d still love to have you on, mate!) but Aussie time zones being what they are, he wasn’t able to make it. Fin is also noticeably absent as well. So, with skeleton crew, Ash, Fishbone and I muddle through the plasma and platelets of Lifeblood, the October expansion! We touch upon Resource Wars, CCP Karkur’s Little things and finally do a brief discussion of the coup of CO2. Goonswarm making things greener in EVE…(by cutting CO2)!

Hope you enjoy!

HD 77: From The Ash

From The Ash

Hey Listeners!

Episode 77 brings a fair bit of discussion lead by Ashterothi! We discuss the Agency, the state of Factional Warfare, the Yokai corporation and alliance tournament and we’re joined by a few great voices. Apothne joins us as he wraps up his commentating from EVE-NT, Greygal jumps in with an update from the Yokai situation and some of us regular grunts. Fin shows charity with an alpha in the Yin with a Tormentor fit that helps out one of his poor victims.

Hope you enjoy!

HD 76 Well, Back In My Day

Well, Back In My Day

Hey High Drag listeners! Episode 76 was an excellent discussion! We were Ash-less this time around but at the last minute, we were joined by Elise Randolph and Jin’taan to compare and contrast the original Summer of Rage (Post Incarna) and the current Summer of Mild Discontent. Honestly, it started feeling alike a room full of old guys chatting about the “good ol days”. It was so much fun! In the second segment, we discuss another topic that’s near and dear to my heart, Alliance Tournament. With Elise and Jin’taan doing commentating the upcoming tourney, I felt that tapping their unique perspective would make for AT enlightenment. Fin’s Yin covers the low sec non-bubbling flycatcher.

And I think the audio turned out much better on this episode.

Hold all the hate mail. 😉
