Intro:

Four years ago, CCP released the Apocrypha expansion. This massive update to the EVE universe saw the introduction of wormholes, sleepers, an entirely new tech tree, and other features that cumulatively restored a sense of grandeur and mystique that had been missing. By all accounts, Apocrypha was a massive success. Subscription rates increased dramatically and held steady as new players eager to explore the unknown dove into wormhole space and older players resubscribed to try their hand in colonizing the harshest of eve environments.

Four years later, the grandeur and mystique of Apocrypha has greatly diminished. Only a small percentage of the EVE population resides in wormhole space. I want that feeling of adventure and exploration to return and amaze players new and old.

Hello all!

I am here to announce my candidacy for CSM8
You can vote now at: https://community.eveonline.com/community/csm/vote

About me as a player:

I am Chitsa Jason and I am a diplomat and mercenary contractor for Exhale alliance. Given the unique circumstances of EVE wormhole space, my official capacity has allowed me to become proficient in both the skills necessary for diplomacy as well as the minutia necessary for victory in PVP.

I started playing EvE as a miner and after entering wormholes to mine expensive ores, I eventually banded with several other corporations to create the alliance known as Narwhals ate my Duck. After experiencing the glories and pitfalls of managing such a large alliance, we revived and nurtured Exhale into its current form as a successful mercenary wormhole alliance.

My real name is Kasparas Jasiukenas. I am 29 and I live in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius. My hobbies include chasing beautiful girls, playing table football and drinking beer, not necessarily in that order. I have worked in a variety of jobs, including photography, event organization, computer repair, and website design.

My achievements in EvE

I am a leading pioneer in the field of mercenary wormhole contracts, and have been involved in the organization of many major wormhole events. I have also become one of the administrators of the wspace diplomatic channel, and have been able to help forge controversial alliance coalitions.

Me as CSM:

As a longtime Eve player and diplomat, I have had extensive experience in managing Eve organizations and even coalitions of wormhole alliances. But I have not forgotten my mining roots and thus have experience in the whole spectrum of EvE activities ranging from political scheming to industry.

What I want to accomplish:

Well it is quite simple. I will try to do my best to continue what Two Step (current CSM member) did. I did not always agree on his approach but I think he did hell of a job being CSM. It takes me some balls to acknowledge that as our alliances are quite the rivals.

I will press CCP to finish fixing player owned starbases and all their entailing glitches and bugs such as being unable to assemble strategic cruisers, being unable to repackage items, as well as larger issues such as enhancing and simplifying corporate security. I will also work to make sure that CCP pays attention to other wormhole related issues such as the addition of content into wormhole space, tech 3 ship re-balancing, the addition of new static wormholes into certain systems, the addition of alliance bookmarks, the usefulness of the Black Hole system modifier, the naming of Signature IDs, and many other issues.

Another avenue that I would like CCP to explore more is the formalization of mercenary contracts, including in-game tools to simplify the process. I would also love to bring more new players into EvE and wormholes and I am working on a few projects which will encourage just that. Even though these two themes are explored in two sentences here it would be my personal crusade to make merc and newbro life easier.

My door is open to any kind of discussions so please post your questions here, convo me, invite me to your TS or just visit the in-game channel Chitsa4CSM. Vote Chitsa!

Chitsa Jason will help to "bring more new players into EvE and wormholes."

Chitsa Jason has said that "SD in POSes, multiple statics in some of the wormholes, alliance bookmarks, T3 ship balancing, Black Hole usefulness, additional content in wspace, T3 ship refitting in POSes, Capital SMAs in wspace, Signature ID naming and many others are on my list."

Chitsa Jason "will be concentrated on CSM and communication bridge between players and CCP."

Chitsa Jason, an experienced player continuing to lead a community.

It doesn't look good when four out of the first five commenters are from your alliance. Just sayin'.



In the context of the battle of Asakai and recent tensions between Goonswarm and TEST, how well would you say nullsec is performing at the moment?

What's your stance on the 'carebear creep', to use Poetic's phrase? Do you feel that some players should be able to play in highsec with no danger at all?

Can you be specific on the issues/approaches of mine that you disagree with?

Do you feel that the increasing sizes of wormhole coalitions is a problem? If so, what can be done to discourage it?

I have disagreed on how was the force-field issue with new POSes handled. I wanted you to stress it more than it was.

I would also think really hard before introducing random triggers into wormhole space. I think having them would add boredom to the game. There is currently one C5 site with random triggers. Everyone does that site last as it the slowest and most unfun. I know you are supporter of more randomness in wspace. I think random triggers introduced to current wspace sites will add more boredom as sites which are boring already will have to be done slower.

There are other but they are mostly minor ones. If you wish we could talk about them.

As far as the coalitions go I think it is and issue which steals fun from the game. It usually means longer form up timers. less battles in general and cold war of w-space where noone wants to poke each other in a stronger manner.
So yes I do think that it is a problem. I don't think that currently the coalition sizes are increasing though. I think we see people understanding that coalitions are not solving the problems. TALUN/TLOST are reset so that's one of the largest of wspace coalitions gone. My alliance Exhale. has removed most of the blues recently as well. We see more and more alliances deciding to go neutral to each other.
It is very hard to solve coalition size issue mechanics wise. I think the main way to do it is to just discourage it as much as possible publicly and personally to each other.

About 8 months ago I was listening to CSM Alekseyev Karrde's Declarations of War Podcast. He was interviewing Chitsa on that particular episode about Exhale., wormhole merc contracts, and in general how awesome they were. I had wanted to go into wormholes for quiet some time, and hearing Chitsa's enthusiasm, vast knowledge, and general desire to shoot everything, and I knew that's where I wanted to be. It took me a while to meet the skill requirements, but I got in and I've had the best time in eve since.Chitsa is one of my favorite people in Eve, I wish the best of luck to you and I know you would make an awesome CSM.

In response to your questions,

1) As far as the nullsec performance overall, I'd be inclined to say that is for the overall members of that community to decide if they are enjoying the current content from the tensions between the major blocs, however from my perspective, I have many members who have enjoyed going and having shootouts with the nullsec community. I intend to study proposals and listen to constituents regarding their concerns with each community, and make, what I would feel, the best overall decision to support and better that community.

2) Eve Online is a sandbox. As much as I understand the reason some players would like to be able to build their sandcastles in peace, I believe that this game is unique because of the player driven content, drama, and interactions. I am not a proponent of allowing stipulations that would prevent players from interacting how they would enjoy. Highsec already limits PVP via Concordokken, and I feel that should be considered by the players insisting on removing particular interactions.

As a member of the CSM, my ambition is to help better this community. I intend to listen to players, communicate with CCP, and see that the game is better for it. We may not always agree on the direction of a proposal, but I will do my my best to be available to hear your ideas, concerns, and questions and provide feedback and results.

Again, thank you for your questions.

I very much support this.. Having spoken with him on several occasions I think he would be an ideal candidate to represent the W-Space dwellers.

Thanks for your answers.

On another note, might it be worth asking your alliance mates to stop spamming the thread now? Surely they could express their well-wishes in private, rather than filling up the thread with fairly useless comments, as well as causing a lot of notification spam.

Thank you for your opinion. I however think it is great that my alliance mates are supportive of me. If they wish to show their support in this thread I can not force them to stop.
