The current CSM wants to nerf NPC 0.0 without opposition from the candidates I supported in the previous election. Because of this I will be running for CSM7 on a small gang/NPC 0.0 platform. I believe that the extremes of Eve's gang sizes (solo and 100+) are well represented, with no one left for that middle ground.

Who am in game?

I started playing Eve in mid 2007, being thrown into Sov warfare with various now-dead entities. I moved onto lowsec after a year, where I relearned PvP in Amamake with Heretic army, and eventually moved on to Dark Star Cartel, a member corp of Molotov Coalition. In late 2009 Molotov coalition folded, and I joined Stimulus for the smug, ~elitepvp~ environment.

I've been a member of Stimulus for the past 2 years, who is the executor corporation of Rote Kapelle. Rote are a PvP alliance based in Syndicate. For the unaware, Syndicate is the most active region in Eve for PvP kills, year after year. All we do as an alliance is PvP, usually in gangs between 5-30 people. I dabble in industry on alts, mostly producing boosters.



Why would I be an asset to the CSM? Because People who live in NPC 0.0 are massively underrepresented. Here's a few things that I agree with/would push for if elected.

  • Viable small gang objectives
  • Not Nerfing NPC 0.0 Regions.
  • Making LowSec a Higher Priority.
  • EWAR Balance
  • Boosters
  • Jump Clone Timers, Clone Upgrade Costs


These are a few of my views on topics that are a high priority to me. There are lots of things in Eve that still need work, but I think that the members are mostly unified in the direction CCP needs to continue taking. The next expansion is supposed to be focused on Sov warfare, and I'd like to ensure the rest of the universe isn't left out.

I encourage anyone to ask me questions, especially if its about a topic I haven't discussed above. I can be contacted through the replies or an in game evemail.

Yeah sure ok. Whatever dilutes the ballot more. I mean represents more valid interests that ought to be represented on the CSM. Not the other thing I said, because that would be immortal. Immoral. Mittani is definitely not an immortal CSM chairman who will never be defeated.

Serious question: What has the current CSM done to nerf NPC nullsec?

There was the proposal to make it possible to disable NPC nullsec stations, keeping the very high EHP and making them automatically regenerate at a set rate. The intention behind this being that it would be possible to disable NPC nullsec staging systems (which often can be used to stage an attack on Sov 0.0) but not just knocking out station services "for the lulz". It there more?

I mean that IS a nerf, but from my perspective it seems like a weak ground to claim "the current CSM wants to nerf NPC 0.0 without opposition", especially since I know there is at least one non-sovholding PVP-focused alliance representative in the current CSM.

Using NPC nullsec to stage from while attacking sov 0.0 is a specific case of people dying to pandemic legion and wanting to nerf them. Their power comes directly from their supercap fleet, which doesn't use stations anyways. Supercapital staging POSs for these alliances already exist, yet no one shoots them. Even with very high EHP, there is nothing to prevent supercapitals from doing the job efficiently, for the lulz.

I don't think the actions of one alliance and sov holder's inability to deal with them should hurt the rest of the players who chose to live in NPC 0.0. A distinction chould be made between NPC regions, and player regions with NPC systems (FDZ in geminate, NPC delve/fountain)


I'm not too concerned with diluting the pool of candidates, I wouldnt vote for anyone who's currently running anyways. As for there being non-sovholding representatives on the CSM, their opposition to these ideas are absent from the most recent minutes, so they might as well have no opposition at all.

I may have been a little to subtle as to the identity of two of the non-sovholding representatives I was speaking of. You're claiming that a CSM council with a member and an alternate in pandemic legion are proposing a change to NPC 0.0 solely to nerf...pandemic legion? Well, okay.

I'm not sure why it would at all be worthwhile to take out a staging PoS when your enemy can easily put up another one for people undocking from the station to form up in, unless you could...say...knock out that station's fitting service.

And you're still using ideas in the plural when as far as I've known there's only one.

Anyways, you have my like in the interest of ~star democracy~

Also, wasn't there some bullshit about shooting the local rats reducing your standing with the NPC station owners to the point you'd not be able to use their services? I'm probably mistaken, but iirc that was an Actual Thing that was being considered*. :wtc:

Leboe on CSM would be great. He 'gets' NPC 0.0.


* maybe I'll read some actual CSM minutes someday, idk!
