I feel like those are in better shape than the more obvious ones that are struggling more. I mostly just put down my preliminary thoughts here, I'm sure those 2 could also probably use some Polish somewhere, but I'd have to look deeper into it.

When you think about all of those things that are "not working well with ships" according to you, do you keep in mind PVE usage of those ships ?

How do you want to fix ECM?

The idea that an action that is essentially not considered offensive should have perhaps the hardest and most binary counter in the game is ridiculous. There are many ways to make it much less game breaking.

My vote is dependent on how big deal this is for you, and how you want to change it.

Also, what is your view on the balance of logistics and how it affects small gang/solo?

Hi ViolentDesire. I think that everyone in the game (and CCP themselves, especially since CCP Rise has made jokes about when he joined CCP he was going to fix ECM) knows that ECM is a terrible mechanic with horrible game design. I'm not sure how to completely redesign and change ECM to a different mechanic, it would take a lot of work, words and probably be a jesus level feature from CCP since it's deeply ingrained into the game, and would require the rebalance of 8 Caldari Ships on top of everything else.

Some ideas that I would like to push for ECM that don't fundamentally change the ways in which ECM works requiring a complete redesign are as follows;

ECM Drones - Change them to lockbreaker drones. I hate ECM drones I feel like they are by far the biggest offenders for the frustration offered up by getting jammed. I would like them to be changed into lockbreaker drones instead of ECM drones, so that way, they can help you run away from a fight or an encounter, but they wouldn't be "lol I rolled a 6, I just won this fight" that they are now for 1v1 and some small gang engagements. They have such a huge randomness delta for such little cost.

Although this would kill the Griffin Navy Issue and ECM solo PvP (lol) I feel that making ECM non chance based and absolute would also go a long way to improving the gameplay surrounding ECM. I really like this idea from a long time ago, where instead of being jammed 50% of the time, you would just lose 50% of your locks etc. This would improve small gang fights involving ECM a lot.
https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=1006419#post1006419

Another idea I like is make ECM limit max targets to 1 instead of 0. This way it isn't as good as a Anti-Solo weapon, and remove the 'anti-entosis' use but still is good at disrupting logistics and target swapping in fights, and buff ECM ships with new combat abilities (Make the Blackbird like an Arbitrator with a new drone bonus and 50m3 bay for example).

Note that although I feel like ECM has garbage game design, I think in the bigger picture it is balanced. A lot of recent changes have curbed the power of ECM (Ganglink Reworks making info links non niche and buffing sensor integrity link, Tiericide on ships sensor buffs in general, Sensor Booster/ECCM merge, Tiericide on ECM modules making old meta 4 no longer as good as T2, and thus causing ECM ships to have to use more CPU/Cap fitting the T2 mods for old range/jam strength).

I think that Logistics is pretty powerful (Maybe too powerful) right now. But I'm unsure how to proceed with changing it or adjusting it, The new Command Destroyers have added an interesting counter to non-FAX logistic balls recently.

I feel like PVP use is of the most importance to me, I personally feel like a lot of PVE content should be rehashed and redesigned to be more engaging, fun and PVP like. I must admit that I often do not consider PVE uses when I talk about ships, mostly because I do not engage in much PVE myself and my knowledge is much more limited on that front, but if anyone has any concerns with PVE usage of ships I definitely will consider those concerns into proposals and bring them up with CCP.

Hey Suitonia, long time fan of your work but why of all the alliances would you join goons in NPC space instead of PL or NC.?

You do know that bigger isn't always better.

Eve Minions is recruiting.

This is the law of ship progression!

Yup that's my concern, you're just another "pvp centric" CSM candidate who might not be able to add some value concerning feedback about the pve fitting/ship meta. I'm worried that most balance on ship in the game is focus on how ship could be usefull in pvp (industrial excepted) without considering how those change goes on the pve side of the ship.

Suitonia is a legendary eve player and as such would make a great CSM as he has fingers in many pies, contacts, friends, and knows the community inside out. My favorite thing about him, and the reason I believe he would be great is that he is someone who has achieved much status without being overtly political or having a trace of ego, a really hard thing to do in this game. He has friends with all factions within eve (he does take sides, but has never indicated to me that he holds any grudges), and not many people can say that.

I have also worked with him a lot on multiple eveSports projects and he has always been reliable and given consistently top-notch analysis of PVP mechanics - he is the best technical analyst I have worked with and has an incredible capacity to remember all of the abilities of subcapital ships and modules in the game, and how they interact with each other. This is another fantastic reason he would make a great CSM.

+1 from me and all my alts.

I'm more than willing to listen to feedback from PvE players, my passion is not PvE and I don't presume to speak for them. If a change to a ship would cause serious concerns for PvE then I would argue for them.

GoonSwarm is a well organised alliance and I'm having fun flying with them. I'm a pretty prolific corp hopper though and I've been in PL, TEST, CVA before too! I don't want to be in the "best" elite PvP alliance for the sake of being in the "best" alliance. I'm more of a solo guy with my own friends in a bunch of different alliances and I don't pick sides or hold grudges.

Thanks for all the kind words so far friends.

With the departure of both myself and Gorski at the end of CSM 11, the critical role of a balance and small gang/solo council member will go vacant and will require a successor. It is for this reason that I support and endorse Suitonia's candidacy for CSM 12, and encourage any and all who supported Gorski or myself to back Suitonia in this election. Although I proposed and supported the reduction of the total number of CSM members from 14 to 10, I completely understand that it makes it harder for 'non-bloc' focused candidates to get the necessary votes to secure a seat. This is why it is critical that if mechanics, balance, and small gang/solo PVP are important issues to you, that you place Suitonia at the top of your ballot this year to ensure these issues have an experienced voice representing them at the table.

Despite Suitonia's reputation as a pilot of the detestable frigate class space vessels, I can assure you that in all seriousness that he is one of only a handful of people in the game with the necessary experience, depth of understanding, and ability to articulate feedback to fill this important balance-focused role. This is demonstrated by his: (1) years of PVP experience in the game;(2)numerous articles and writeups analysing balance problems, and (3) dozens of videos showcasing his understanding of fitting, piloting, and mechanics. His existing relationship with CCP Devs will only be strengthened by securing a seat on the CSM, and I trust him to objectively address the topics I care about most and continue the work done by CSM 11 in this regard. I encourage all solo/balance focused voters to back Suitonia in this election. Good luck on your campaign and may the holy Battleships flourish in your care.

So fed up with those "Elect me, I'm Famous" candidates...


Could you link the guides you've written? Anything selfless at all?

I've watched lots of his streams and read his Kestrel guide enough to try it for myself and honestly no matter what sort of NPE CCP comes up with, the best quality NPE is going to be players showing how they play, by example; and honestly suitonia is much, much less of an attention hoe compared to others in the genre of Twitch/youtubers.

We need lots more of this guy and others to step up in Eve Online.


Well hopefully there will be a frigate focus group and he will be usefull.
Good luck to him for the election btw.

We'll probably need a BS solo pvp expert too, can't wait Zarvox to apply.



Wow... You're not pathetic at all. you must be the cool, edgy rebel of the internet. I totally wish I had daddy issues like you so I can project my insecurity onto others.. Sucks because I can't be as much of a bitter douche bag as you.

I'm new and was just browsing around and came across this. I have no idea what EVE needs or anything remotely of the likes of that. However, It doesn't take an expert in any game to notice that you clearly have issues to get so upset over a single person (that, from this perspective, has merely listed credentials to establish their experience within EVE) and shows you are capable of nothing other than condescending down to others. Maybe, if you are capable, you can type something a little more 'constructive' and less "I'm triggered over something so trivial, I have to be a hateful whiny little b*tch about it".

I for one hope you don't run for whatever the hell this election is for. No one will probably need a BS internet edgelord expert.

Some players have voiced concerns over the 40km scram range scripted hictors being oppressive to solo/small gang pvp.
Do you agree? How big of an issue is it? How would you fix it, if needed?
