For those of you who do not know who I am, I am a High/Null Sec residing incursion runner. I hope to represent High sec during this campaign and would like to address some of the issues plaguing High sec.

Incursions are a wonderful way for Carebears to make money, while also being involved in a community. I do however believe that there are some design flaws with them in their current state. A quick list things that I believe should be adjusted are as follows:

  • Quicker monetary penalty for stacking the grid with extra players over the maximum payout amount
  • The ability to defend the Mothership before the Withdraw timer should be introduced
  • The TPPH site type needs a little work to bring it in line with the other Headquarter site types

Freighter Ganking/Super Dunking

Despite being a carebear I do not believe that this form of "content creation" as gankers would like to call it should be nerfed or removed. However I do believe that the freighter should be given at least some form of self defense. When was the last time you saw a trucker without a License to Carry. And to help combat Super Dunking, Freighters should at least be able to lock.

This may lose me a few votes, but I believe that CCP was a little hasty in the way they tried to solve the issues that IS boxer was creating. And despite all the predictions in the forum post for it, I have yet to see a significant drop in plex price, or a better profit margin on industry. I have however noticed an decline in user online activity in the recent months, and a decrease in the value of deadspace modules which affects the income of High and Null alike. I believe that CCP should re-address this issue to come up with a solution that better addresses the problems at hand.

As a candidate I would also like to state that I do not know everything about every aspect of High-Sec gameplay, however as a representative of highsec I will make it my duty to hear your voices and present your arguments to CCP in the best available fashion. The CSM should be FOR the people BY the people. The above touched on topics are not all of my opinions about the changes needed in the game, however they are the issues that I have the most experience with and first hand knowledge of. If there is anything you as a High-sec dweller would like to be addressed please mention it in the In-game channel "Aeon CSMX"

Have you submitted your paperwork to appear on the ballot?

My understanding is that due to the wardec mechanic, incursion runners do not form into large corporations. Instead they form one man corporations that can be quickly dissolved and reestablished. Are you satisfied that CCP provides enough tools outside the corp/alliance UI to allow incursion communities to adequately function?

The CSM is described by those who have served on it as a 20-40 hour a week commitment. Would you be able to put that much time into your CSM duties for a full year?

If you could pick only one other candidate to serve with you, who would that be?

Rosewalker yes I have submitted my paperwork to appear on the ballot.

And yes you are correct that most incursion runners stay in small 1 man corps. I feel that maybe ccp could possibly invest in an Isk sink that would allow corporations to pay to be unwardeccable. But this mechanic would need lots of investigation to not be abused by major corps and alliances. for the mean time I am happy with the tools that ccp has provided to allow communities of non-Corp members to develop and be maintained.

I am well aware of the strains that serving on the csm will put on me, and I am fully dedicated to investing the time needed to ensure that the voice of highsec is heard as loud as possible.

If I could pick only one I would have to say Mike. He is a really swell guy who put a lot of time in trying to help highsec over the last couple years.
