Thanks voters! Corebloodbrothers CSM 10

My name is corebloodbrothers, I was elected as a member of the ninth Council of Stellar Management (CSM), in order to represent you, the players of EVE Online. I am also one of the leaders of The Volition Cult Alliance, a Providence sovereignty holder and member of the Providence Bloc, which I function as one of their main Fleet Commanders. Little did I know of what was ahead.

I am 42 years of age, Dutch (bad English spelling), father of 4 daughters, and I freaking love EVE. CSM 9 election was my first seat. I ran before, But for 9 I focused on just my own list, my friends, Providence and other entities I have come to know over the years, such as RNK for example, who voted for me. I stayed away from all the backroom dealing that went on with the previous CSM elections. So I had no crossvoting on my list, nor did I appear on other lists. And didnt need those either, I got voted in big.

Being honest and loyal to the people I fly with against. Independent voters do exist, in fact, and I have had a lot of chats and EVE mails with various people since I ran for CSM, many of which I have never met before. Also running fleets daily with friends on fixed hours and shared coms help, i a, a csm who plays the game daily, while giving respect to the new players and the casual PvPers, for 3 years now in the Providence Bloc. Being a part of building the current Providence, a region which sees medium sized skirmishes on a daily basis. Upholding NRDS, and turning The Volition Cult from 400 into ite current 1500 + size

Have no mistake, here in Providence, we see ourselves as the last bastion of the “Not Red Don’t Shoot” (NRDS) policy in Null, as well as a truly neutral zone. So for me, and my voters, this election alone was unique for provi. As the year progressed, so did we, under attack by HERO we dominated the news even, which was scary for the state of null actually. And we saw CCP change, and EVE with it. I like too think that if the whole null sec was divided into 20 groups, with 10 border wars, Null sec would be saved.

So, just elected, and I didn’t even have time to let it sink in as the work just piles up: Twitter account, Google DocsDrive, Skype, hundreds of Emails, not to mention the Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA)…It is a bit overwhelming, even if Was on cloud nine, as my wife even kind of congratulated me (Since this will have impact on my real life) and my kids think I am the greatest, even telling everyone at school. A CSM team where most are red to me ingame is funny to begin with.

Communication is key, so I set up twitter: @corebloodbro. Which I use frequently, I am active on forums and other means of communication. Within my regio through open sessions on mumble, Eve email explodes sometimes, internal CSM forums, all highly addictive for a eve junky with a RL and a job.

In my evesterdam speech i announced alot of things that kept me busy in the CSM, and events like blink, freighter changes, null sec, leaving of several CSM members, that impacted our term and your future. I quickly came too the realization that the meetings with CCP where often during my work. At the start I sneaked hem in at work, but that didn’t feel right. Often there where recordings available. And CCP Leeloo always announced when they where crucial and asked for us all. Sometimes that makes u feel guilty, but in the end I balance that with forums, and other stuff, like a speech, interviews, twitter, and the fact i actually play eve alot.

I was very happy with PI acces too null for everyone, which is a big in provi. The nerf on power projection and the upcoming occupancy get from me a standing ovation. We felt with isboxer we where talking too a wall, but CCP came around bigtime. I hate isboxer bomberwings. With Blink we saw a CCP struggling , investing time and make clear who is in control of EVE. The whole 3 days they stayed very much in touch with us, the CSM. So much to list, sometimes you stand aside, sometimes you don’t agree, but I am extremely proud of the course EVE and CCP is moving with the CSM. The release cycle based on sprints is giving us more content and features then you have ever had in EVE. Crest, occupancy, wormhole, so much more too come!

CSM10.. when I started CSM was something I always wanted, much like owning a titan, building a station, owning sov, kill supers. It turned into much more, a way to express love for EVE, respect for the people that build it, and a way to make a voice heard that wants to help EVE into the next decade. I never thought I would like to run again, but I will if providence region keeps appreciating me as their representive also for next year. Ofcourse it’s not just your alliance and friends. I have gotten so much votes from frends, reds, people who believe null sec is more than 2 blocks nailing each other too the wall. Small scale PVP, localized conflicts, occupancy based sov, and income, build local, sell local. Close communities and the this is eve feeling expressed in the awesome new video. Winter summit and fanfest 2015!, and i have offered the opportunity too attend them both, which is epic. I met more people this year than in a entire eve life,of all sorts and sizes and met unexpected friends and enemies. So make sure you vote for CSM 10! , last year my election was a surprise too many, this year lets show this wasn’t a one time event. I will be running again for a null sec outside the major blocks, for a daily skirmisch based game play where you don’t just login when you get a jabberping. Where 1 big war is replaced by 10-15 localised ones. Where fatique matters and adds a tactical layer.
Eve is a niche game, cut throat, insanely caring, and one hell of a rush, call me a eve addict! fanfest2015 , eversterdam 2015, provi kopenhagen cant wait!

I will be voting for Core again this year. :)

BoBwins Law: As a discussion/war between two large nullsec entities grows longer, the probability of one comparing the other to BoB aproaches near certainty.

Hehe , i ll post a bigger post soon, for now wintersummit yet even to come. On the jb i guess i was vocal as i felt that interregional jb use versus intraregional makes a big diff, where as the one is used to travel the null sec powrr projection highway, and the other is used for your day to day null sec operations. Having said that i know wh, low sec and npc null never had the luxury at all of having them. The question if fatique and cooldown are where we want them as a evaluation i did send in indeed for the summit which i been invited too in jan

Hahaha xxx holes, for those that missed it. A isboxer placed 5 billion bounty on my head cause i was very vocal that i aplaud at the new input rules, and pushed for them during the year. Its almost beautiful too see a isboxing bomberwing launch, and turn and warp off in perfect synchronie. But at the same time its pretty devastating on the receiving end. 7 pilots is 7 times more change of **** ups verses 1

I actually campaign against the CSM existing but if we must have it then you are the devil I know. So you will have my vote.

We should have the option to vote for someone or vote against them. I think Mittani would never have been CSM then.

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.
