233: Solitude Summit

Our Solitude contract went better than expected

-Alek is joined by alliance leadership types Martin Lockheart of Hardly Competent, blogger Xuixien of Solar Wind Security Solutions, and Henrick Suzaku of the Caldari Militia’s SPD

-Contract Update: Solitude turns on a dime after a pair of pitched battles breaks defender morale, leading to the near-collapse of Greater Solitude Commonwealth, a political realignment of the region, and an early job well done for Noir.

-A follow up to our carrier buff poll

-CCP ignites a community firestorm by offering magic Retrievers for cash; we cover the controversy, CCP’s response, and the continuing player backlash

Talking in Stations celebrates 6 years and founder/host Matterall retires from the show. Unfortunately Craigbot eats most of our discussion about it 🙁
