Hello friends

I am Gorski Car. I have been playing eve since 2003 on multiple characters. I was recently added to the current CSM after some dropouts and I am now running for reelection and I really hope we get all the votes this time.

Most of the time in game I spend doing solo pvp/small gang pvp in every part of new eden. I have been doing lowsec, fw, 0.0 and recently I joined RvB to pvp in highsec. I have participated in two alliance tournament teams and the new eden open. I also try to show up for most ingame events.

Most people know me from my postings in the channel "Bringing solo back" and for my stream at http://www.twitch.tv/hkarn where I mostly stream solo pvp.


Feel free to ask me anything!

Having PvP experience in lowsec and highsec, I am curious on your views on the current game design philosophy of risk vs. reward and the relative profitability of the various spaces.

Decisions by CCP over the years have lead to the strange situation that while many people enjoy PvP in low/WH/null space, they return to highsec to make the ISK to support these habits. This is because the reward of operating in highsec is far too high for the almost complete absence of risk, forcing people who may prefer to live and generate ISK in the more risky spaces to return to highsec to make an income as it is more efficient and thus the only rational choice. Counter-productively, this depopulates these non-highsec spaces and reduces the chances of meaningful PvP.

Comments from members of the current CSM imply that they, and perhaps CCP, are fine with this design. Do you agree that highsec should be where the majority of PvE and other income-generating activities takes place? If not, do you have any concrete suggestions on what could be done to encourage players to spend more time earning ISK outside of highsec? Do you think the better approach would be to reduce highsec rewards, or to increase highsec risk?

I think there is a risk vs reward problem for almost all PvE content in eve. They are currently designed in such ways that the best ship to do them in will have next to zero chance in pvp.

Every part of eve should have the things needed to support people living there in my opinion. I don't think that Sov 0.0 people going back to highsec incursions between call to arms is a good idea. I think the better approach would be to encourage people to try more PvE outside Highsec by changing rewards and the entire way you do the missions. Ideally you would have equal PvE payouts in all types of space.

There is also the problem where you can't force someone to fight and people tend to be very risk averse when the fastest way to run a mission is a 2b tengu and no one is going to bring their 15b Incursion Vindicator to lowsec for a tiny bit more isk.

I used to farm incursions in deep hostile 0.0 and lowsec when they were first released and the payouts they had back then with increased payouts + blitzing was actually kinda good for lowsec and you certainly had risk and my group even lost a couple of Machariels but we did all the sites with full pvp fits so it wasn't a slaughter when some fleet showed up. I think this was a awesome example of how people who normally do pvp could do a pve activity in hostile space and still be able to fight back if someone tries to pull a jackmove on you.

I agree that every part of Eve should be able to support the people living there in some way.

However, I am a little confused with the rest. You think PvE should be equally rewarding in all types of space, by "changing rewards and the entire way you do the missions". If that was the case, why would anyone leave the safest region of space (highsec) if they are only going to get the same reward if they moved to a more dangerous space?

Shouldn't more risky space have more rewarding PvE payouts? Otherwise, why would I risk my ships there for PvE?

I meant that there should be greater rewards for more dangerous space. You should always reward the brave. There are less people out there doing PvE and they should be able to at least compete income wise with someone who only runs missions solo and never really interact with other people in a mmo.

Joke question: will you be stealing CSM ships to sell to anti-CSM teams during a tournament? If so, can I get a good deal on said ships?

Serious questions:

As you were, sadly, not in the initial 14 delegates properly elected and came into your current CSM 9 seat due to CSM 9 members stepping down, what do you feel are the best examples of the work you've done during your, currently, brief time as a delegate?

What do you feel CSM 9 has failed at as a group in serving their role this past year?

What do you feel was your biggest failure as a CSM 9 delegate during your time on council?

Can you please link CCP members this song in the CSM 9 channel? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05-c-iy-WnY

As for the first question: I was kicked from PL because Shamis thought I wasn't safe enough to have around the alliance tournament team and therefore not safe to have in PL. The reason Penif didn't protect me was because I never really flew with PL at all. I only joined because I know Lelob and I only stayed because I liked the community (that I still have access to). And for real who needs spies to beat dual tanked vagabonds and beam zealots...

When I came on the CSM halfway through many of the major things in Rhea and Phoebe was already decided so I had nothing to contribute to that. What I did suggest was the removal of anchorable bubbles in Thera. I also supported the removal of clones fully because I think its a mechanic that currently offers no actual gameplay. Nobody ever chooses not to update their clone and the game itself flashes the cloning thing when you die to make sure you remember. It is just an arbitrary fee attached to pvp.

I have not been involved with the csm for the full term so they probably made some failures during the start of the term. There might have been some failures of communication etc that I missed. But for the part where I have been on the csm it has been really great. There are ofc people who are going to work way harder or way less then others but as a group I think we really manage to give good feedback on the things ccp shares with us.

My biggest failure in the CSM so far is that I wont link that song in the csm skype channel ;p For real though I think my biggest failure is that I have missed some meeting because of my real life work schedule. It is a good thing they are recorded.

Just kidding about the bro-status thing. Gorski knows his PVP and understands how mechanics being introduced can affect that aspect of the game.

What is your view on competitive pvp in eve? (AT, Neo, some kind of dojo)
Where do you see Eve in a year, regarding competitive gameplay.

As a pilot who has flown in a couple of alliance tournaments, both NEOs and SCLs I have to say that I am a big fan of competitive eve. I think that CCP should continue running these events. I think that events like these is a good way to get people into eve because it looks exciting. Competitive eve is also very different from normal eve pvp and it does a good work of bringing bitter vets and people wanting to try something new back to eve pvp. I know personally that I was kinda numb from dumpstering scrubs in lowsec but when I went into my first Alliance tournament was when I got the shakes back that I liked so much from my first moments as a pvper.

Large 2k vs 2k battles in 0.0 battles also do this well but I feel the smaller scale pvp with commentators is a bit faster and more exciting to watch.

In a year I really want ccp to still be doing the tournaments. I think they should keep alliance tournament as the big tournament every year that people look forward to and the one with the biggest reward. I think ccp should be looking into maybe doing some smaller tournaments where people can qualify for neo/AT or win some cheaper prizes.

But I also think that players should take some more responsibility creating these events. Currently these events are kinda hard to arrange for players but the dojo while kinda unrefined is a good start towards making this easier for people to handle.

Thank you for your earlier response.

What is your position on fighter assignment? For example a Nyx assigns fighters from the edge of a POS to a T1 frigate which is somewhere else in the system.

with kind regards
