Hi.

My name is Klapen.

I am running for CSM 10.

I thought there was a bright light, a star, a guiding star for New Eden….but it’s become apparent that star no longer shines. This video outlines everything:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bmku6-tHko

I am the Conflagbusinessman, always trying to provide cheap access to pvp via turrets. I sell at a loss every day to ensure these old ways never die.


My Experiences in game (Both past and present):

I play everyday (way tooooo much)
Highsec PVP (+RVB)
Highsec PvE
Nullsec PvE
Null Sec PvP (ew, Ishtars)
Lowsec PvP
Producing/Selling T2 Crystals
Producing/Selling T2 Cruisers
Solo/Small Gang PvP


I have a website: www.klapen.com

There is a shoutout section, if you would like to be on it just evemail me/convo me )))

Having many experiences across eve with both my main and alts I’ve gained a perspective on different aspects of the game.

More about me:

I am a lvl 10 khajiiti archer in Skyrim.
I have a beard in RL.
I like the cold side of the pillow when you flip it.
Never look into the Eve Avatar Camera.
I once gave Hippowhisperer isk and he lost it all in Cerbs.
One of my CEO’s tricked me into buying him a Titan.
I once countered Doomchinchilla’s Ishtar fleet with market pvp.


I am for solo/small-gang/medium-gang pvp.


What the Conflagbusinessman stands for:

ArrowOffline POS Towers (after 30 days) should have their shields dropped.
ArrowMORE BURNER MISSIONS (and more frequent)
ArrowVINDICATORS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BLACK
ArrowI would like there to be t2 frig logi to go along with t2 assault frigs/interceptors/ewar/interdictors
ArrowBRING OLD RMLs BACK
ArrowISHTARS WTF 2 STRONK
ArrowNew Corp Logo Choices (keep the old ones, just simply add more design/background choices)
ArrowMORE CLOTHES
Arrowconsidering caps back in higsec to shoot structures (no supers/titans/maybe no carriers)
ArrowPHOEBE IS A LITTLE 2 STRONK MAYBE


More to come on my stances in game and updates.

I am one of those EVE IS LYFE guys so I have a heavy stake in this game and only want to see it improve in content/game mechanics.


Post on the thread any questions.
Please mail or convo me if you want to talk.
OR THE MORE FUN OPTION: join my channel “The Luv Klub :3”

Offline POS Towers:

Offline POS towers have been annoying for awhile, they can sit there, hold the moon, until someone is willing to bash through it. Depending on the numbers you have (if you are alone or have some friends) it can still take a long time to kill even if its just a small (mediums and larges are even worse). I want there to be a change. I want to balance it, giving people a better option to remove the offline tower while not making it "too easy." This is Eve, there needs to be a challenge.

Idea 1) If the POS Tower is offline for 30 days or more, the shields go down (i.e. the offline tower no longer has any shield hitpoints) While there would still be bashing involved, we would be talking a fraction of the time required due to how much shield these offline towers have, leaving only the armor/hull to go through.

Idea 2) making the POS Tower (thats been offline for 30 days or more) hackable, just like in the PVE sites. This adds both an element that requires effort on part of the pilot to hack through the Tower’s systems, while adding content for any player that can hack.

I am open to more ideas if you have any.

Vindicators:

Vindis are supposed to be jet black. They look cool that way and thats why I loved to fly them, now I don’t fly Vindis because of the changes. The Icon makes it look like a glossy Megathron Navy Issue and the ship just doesn't do anything for me anymore. I am not alone in these feelings, many others have expressed their views on this in a past Reddit post dedicated to “Vindis are supposed to be black.”

Burner Missions:

When they first came out I was really excited to try them, I had gone through multiple guides and was ready for adventure. Fitting up different frigs to fly (each used for a different mission) I went around and fought each burner pirate at least three times. I really enjoyed doing them, almost lost my frig in one of the missions, and even got some faction loot in the very last one I did. I think these should be more available than they are now, not just a random pop up mission that you have to wait for to come. I am ready to hear ideas and concepts from people on how they would like these to be introduced more, I think they could be an incredibly fun “career” option for both new and older players if more missions were introduced, new levels of missions (more difficulty, etc). I want to take this fun new style of mission and expand it more.

Tech 2 Frig Logistics:

Just like there are Onis, Bassies, Scimmies, etc. I think there should be T2 versions of the T1 frig logistics frigates. These T2 Frig Logis would go along with T2 frig comps such as Assault Frigs, Electronic Attack Frigs, Interceptors, etc. I have always enjoyed PVP involving ships under the size of destroyers and I think having these ships could make it more fun. I would love to hear what you all think about this.


New Corp Logo’s:

I’ve thought this for many years, however, never have I been vocal about this until now: there needs to be more corp logo options. I like the options there are now, I am not proposing to get rid of them, but to simply add more options in terms of symbols, backgrounds and colors. If it could be a combination of CCP artwork and player submitted artwork for symbols to be added, I think this would be a nice update to increase the option for diversity in corporate logos. I would like to hear what you all think about this.

Capitals in Highsec:

I have thought a lot about bringing capitals back into highsec for the sake of structure shooting, some people say only let dreads in, others say both carriers and dreads, I am open to both. I think this could add a dynamic to high sec that could add some fun. I also understand the concerns people would have (i.e. 16 triage archons on jita 4-4) so I want to hear everyone out on this to get their input.

Clothes:

I WANTS HATS. If you do not want the option to wear cool space hats then there must be something wrong with you. I want space hats, more options for clothing for both genders in terms of shirts, coats, pants, shoes, etc. I think this is an opportunity for collaboration between CCP and the player base.


Ishtars:

There are so many things about Ishtars that I am afraid to start going on about them because I may never stop. I want to hear what people have to say about balancing Ishtars: reducing their speed, reducing their tank, changing ship bonuses, etc I want to hear what you have to say. Fighting Ishtars is just about the most annoying thing to fight and they need to be balanced. The most common phrase, with the proper tone “oh…..they are in Ishtars.”


Phoebe:


I think, if at the least, its comical that at certain CCP employee worked on making the new jump changes in Eve, left CCP to join another group and tried to introduce a type of fatigue in their game. This issue is polarized, some people love it, others hate it. I want to temper it, I don’t see Phoebe going away, but I think we can balance it better. I would like to hear what people have to say on this. I feel reducing timers and/or slightly increasing ranges for capitals would be appropriate.


Bring Old Rapid Light Missile Launchers Back:

That pretty much says it. I am not fond of the 60 second reload timer. When its you in a solo caracal fighting a fleet of inties tackling you, and your launcher needs to sit dead in the water for 60 seconds you can end up dead in the water. Me no like that. I would like to hear your thoughts on that.

Yes to everything except:

Jump fatigue/ranges are great. We went from a completely polarized nullsec to the current situation that has us with several groups all competing for dominance. Even the lowsec groups are more bold with sub caps now that they don't have to worry about being dropped on with supers every time.

Mixed feeling on the Rapid Lights. Their DPS is great as is their damage application. I like their niche set up.


No to caps in highsec. Highsec should be kept unique no?

Lastly, we need more sun glasses.

If we can agree on more space sun glasses I am pretty sure we can work through anything )))

I was promised a shrine on your website for committing my support to this thread and you have yet to deliver. If you cannot produce a simple shrine how can you possibly be trusted on crucial issues like making vindicators black again?

Living in lowsec my whole EVE career and I couldn't disagree more with you. (the bolded part)

I should clarify. Lowsec groups are more bold because 0.0 powers don't drop caps on them left and right. But lowsec groups themselves are using caps more often now.

And like I said before. I disagree. The same amount of capital kills are happening as pre-pheobe. 0.0 entities were the smaller groups "batphone" or "bail out" rite 911 call. Now they (the smaller lowsec groups) can do nothing to use caps to combat the big lowsec entities now such as TISHU, OE, SNUFF, SC ect... Where as in the past they could have called someone to help balance the field out.

Something needs change. Most groups wont use capitals in our area because "RNEST might drop us". Which if they had the ability to counter us (wider jump range / bringing friends) they might actually field something.

You said you would be pushing for more clothes, but didn't specify what sort of styles. Currently I feel that, especially in terms of colours, the vast majority of clothing options lack extravagance, as someone who expresses themselves through their clothes this makes me very sad indeed.

What are your thoughts on introducing clothes that vary greatly in both style and colour? We're all immortal space gods, surely we should be able to wear neon-rainbow polka-dot bell-bottoms, for example.

Thats right.

I think there should be more color and levels of flair. I think it should not only be CCP coming up with new clothing options, but the player base should be able to share their own art concepts, etc.

I want there to be more options in the current clothing + clothing/accessories thats not already available (ex more glasses, hats, etc etc)


We should be able to dress like immortal space gods.

Not only that, but there is a podcast commercial to his very own brand of performance enhancer.

Not sure where I heard it.

Best of luck, Klapen!!
