Hi everyone,

As promised, CSM8 would like to announce that we will be holding the third of a planned six CSM Town Halls during our term.

CSM8 Town Hall #3 will take place Saturday November 16, at 1900 EVE time.

Following in the footsteps of CSM7 and after being used successfully in our first two Town Halls, we will be continuing to use a dual format for our Town Halls, with them publicly broadcast on EVE Radio during the DJ Wiggles show. This town hall will be 90 minutes in length; we recognize that a lot of you are probably going to want to talk about the various events affecting the community just now. We continue to evolve our Q&A process. This time, we're going to devote half the time to questions submitted in advance, followed by the second half where we will take live questions on the EVE University Mumbel server, which will be open to the public during the Town Hall. I'd like to express the CSM's sincere gratitude to the staffs of both of these organizations for their continued assistance with this important event, notably DJ Wiggles and Neville Smit of E-UNI.

Neville posted on the EVE University website the instructions for accessing their public Mumble server, and I recommend you take some time to go ahead and read those instructions.

As always with these events, we will take questions from any EVE player (past, present, future) that wishes to participate and we'll do our very best to answer within the constraints of the time of the event and of course the ever-present NDA.

The focus of this particular Town Hall will be the upcoming Rubicon expansion, the Summer Summit minutes, the recent controversies surrounding SOMERblink, and of course, general questions from EVE players on any topic they desire. For this meeting, in addition to live questions from those of you on the EVE University Mumble, please submit your advance questions to CSM member Ali Aras.

Barring unforseen accident or emergency, additional CSM Town Hall sessions are planned for:
* early January? (tentative; before the winter summit meeting);
* late February (tentative; after the winter summit meeting); and,
* mid April (before the CSM9 elections).

Precise dates and times for these planned Town Halls will be announced by the CSM at a later date.

More detail will be added to this thread (including the in-game channel name) as we get closer to Town Hall #3. Hope to see you there!


Edit: Un-stickied at the request of the OP. ISD Ezwal.

(reserved for frequently asked questions or important updates)

If you have questions for the CSM that you would like aired but cannot attend the Town Hall yourself, please feel free to send them to Ali Aras and she will ask them in your name ("We received an advance question from XXX, who asks...").

I'll also pick up advance questions out of this thread-- the purpose of asking for questions in advance is so we can screen for questions where we can give you actual quality answers. Sometimes people ask things where the best answer is "try F&I forum, tia"; you don't need to spend five minutes listening to each of us say that at least once.

I only have one question atm

Is Rubicon the patch with the least features we have ever gotten in EvE? Personally I cannot remember one with so little in it.

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

People seem to say that for every expansion.

Either we are on a successively reductive pattern ... or people just like to hear themselves complain.

So on the question side: How can we get these minutes faster?

The only end-game content in EVE Online is the crap that makes you rage quit.

It was a serious question as I cannot remember an expansion with so little in it.

It is almost a large stealth patch, not an expansion.

1) With so many leadership positions still open at http://www.ccpgames.com/en/jobs
is CCP missing the right stuff to prevent future controversies like Somerset ?

Do we need more former EA staff or is a strategic partnership with e.g. Valve better.

2) With new spaceship games coming out soon, like X-Rebirth, Limit Theory, Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen,
will CCPgames do a PvE re-balance (including missions) to compete better against these new games ?

And will we see more and new storyline missions, the current 5 storyline missions are very good to play.

3) With Eve Vegas 2013 I got the impression Dust514 will be released on other platforms soon, this true ?

4) With Plex prices rising so high, is this a sign of a market bubble about to burst or out of control inflation, what does Dr Enyo think ?

5) ETA on CREST plz.

Edit:

6) what is CCP doing to combat TiDi and will we see anything worthwhile before the end of the year ?

Eve online is :

A) mining simulator B) glorified chatroom C) spreadsheets online

D) CCP Games Pay to Win at skill leveling, with instant gratification

Concerning PvE and specifically missions: what are the guidelines CCP is working on? Do they plan to add new original content, or just will overwrite the old one?

That is, should we expect more content like "ghost sites" or more changes like "anti-drone AI"?

So about those summer minutes??? Did they get taken to the shredder due to someone menctioning POS's?

Regarding population and demographics, and specifically how many unique users haves each security space:

a), has CCP Seagull implemented the human-counting methods they were talking with CSM 7?
b), if those methods already exist, do they have useful data?
c), if the data exist and are useful, will they be shared publicly?
d), is the Hallelujah Plan a fruit of guiding game development according to those data?

Just wait until November 20th. They're busy adding big "you can skip this part" signs on 90% of them... P

Just a tip as a followup to this: If your question can be distilled down to "Please tell us CCP's long term design plans with respect to (insert topic)", you're not going to get an answer to it.

Incidentally, just about the only question in this thread that doesn't match that criteria is Frying Doom's, and that one's just a whine question anyway.

You call it a whine question

I call it please explain how CCP has a 50% increase in its development budget and we get the smallest expansion ever.

Good to see real concerns are classed by the CSM as a whine.

Even if we accept that it is a valid question and not a whine, it still falls under that sort of "Please tell us about CCP's high level business decisions and practices" thing that wouldn't get an answer, that you should know better than to think we'd be allowed to answer.

It's not a "real concern"; it's a 'fact' you invented.

So answer it as a player and not as a CCP stooge.

We have the smallest expansion ever and CCP has increased its development budget by 50%. Isn't that something the CSM should be complaining about publicly and privately?

Maybe you should read up on things before you speak. Now I am not saying the CSM is not a joke but you really help drive home the point that it is.

I'm struggling to find questions that don't imply what you say and yet are worth asking.

You're just a bunch of players and the only thing special with you is the information you have on CCP. If that is out of question, then what's the purpose of asking you anything?
