I like the direction of your ideas around exploration and deployables. Also giving hackers a job in fleets would be a nice thing.

I'm my own NPC alt.

I was sharing some ideas about the future of Eve/Legion/Valkyrie on Reddit but thought they might have some value here! The pasting/formatting is rough but you should be able to follow the basic idea there.

Just a couple of questions.

If elected to be on the CSM how much influence do you expect to have on the future development of EVE?

Does your channel function as publicity for your campaign to get on the CSM or does a position on the CSM function as publicity for your channel?

I'm an optimist, but I understand that my influence as a CSM member would be limited to that of a (very vocal) communicator. I don't have illusions that I will be doing more than bridging the wishes of the community to the strategy of CCP, and vice versa. I also understand I would have only one voice among many CSM members, but that's why being a good listener and taking a diplomatic air have value.

Realistically speaking, my channel functions as publicity for literally everything I do in the videogaming world. But it should be obvious the channel is not a tool for the purposes of winning a CSM race, or even for the purposes of EVE specifically. I have been making YouTube videos since 2008 because gaming strategy and humor fascinate me.

I don't see the CSM helping my channel particularly. Most people who'd be aware of me or my corporation already know about my channel!

Oh my glob! Yes! Take my vote Mister Ravinne!

He is pretty spot on with the changes that need to happen with the NPE, and how to make Exploration better for everyone. Now this is a candidate relevant to my interests!

Ok my questions:

What is your opinion on the status of high sec? Ganking? War Dec dodging?

Is there a AFK cloaker problem? Why or why not?

What changes to the game do you like so far?
What do you think needs to be fixed?

I'm sure I will have more.

You are entertaining for sure and people like your vids. Your vids that to date have covered one tiny aspect of this huge universe.

So while I like you and what you've brought to the game, I can't vote for someone with as little knowledge of the big picture as you have. But you have a good attitude and I look forward to seeing what you bring to the table for next years election.

Keep up the good work. You are a fine cheerleader, but not ready for a position on the CSM yet.

These things fall somewhat outside my platform, but here are my thoughts:

HISEC IN GENERAL

In general, I really like hisec. I know that may sound strange, but for me it is the only area of EVE that always feels like an MMO. It feels vibrant and alive, with people who will respond to you in local instead of fretting over opsec. You can see interesting ships pass by and not **** your pants worrying they will yellowbox you.

WARDECS AND GANKING

I don't have a problem with ganking, bumping, or wardecking in concept. These are all things allowed in the sandbox. However, I think the options available to the victims of these acts are poor, especially with wardecs. There is something wrong with a system when the best solution to an entity wardecking you is to quit playing the game or dissolving and reforming your corporation. Primarily there is no fiscal incentive for most "victim" corps to fight out a war, so giving up is usually the least fiscally damaging option.

As far as suicide ganking, the best suggestion I've heard (not mine obviously) was to change how security status affects you. That dropping negative will very quickly give you a suspect timer, because yes, ganking people constantly is suspicious! This makes it so that ganking is still just as possible as it is now, but one cannot cruise around with impunity until the millisecond before turning on his modules.

CLOAKY CAMPING

I rely hugely on cloaky camping for my activities, so I have a lot of experience there.

On the one hand, I think 90% of players overreact to having a single neutral in system. They imagine the "worst" and are paralyzed with fear. Heavens forbid they lose a single Ishtar! On the other hand, there should be some kind of counter to long-term cloaking. What about a deployable structure that disables cloaking within "X' AU around it, but requires active anchoring (i.e. you must sit at it to anchor it)? Something like this could force the cloaky's hand, especially within a set area and time frame. But it also requires the launcher to correctly guess the camper's intentions (and also limits their own option to cloak).

Ultimately, I think cloaky camping should be addressed, but I don't believe it is a game-ruining problem that should be prioritized over other, more important matters.

EVE CHANGES

As far as "changes to the game so far" what time frame do you mean? Because there is a big difference between changes in the last six months versus all-time changes to EVE!

A deployable wouldn't work. If you were to deal with perma cloakies, it would have to be a ship or a module on a ship. Give the players the ability to Hunt cloaked people. While that would benefit the nullsec camp, it would mess up a good hunk of wormhole space. Heck we'll have people inside a enemy hole for MONTHS watching their movements, trying to capitalize on what they do.

Giving them a defensive module that would destroy the scouts ability to scout...

What effects one area of space, effects all area's of space, some with benefit, some with negatives. Just be careful with what you may ask for, because it may wreck a different area of gameplay.

FYI, good email to the corp last week. :-)

Keep up the good work. We need actual happy players out there.

Yaay!!!!

But Chance, how can you honestly say that changes like the addition of the Jump Fatigue mechanic have had no effect on EVE gameplay? While it may have little effect on highsec denizens and players without the need or skill to use capitals, it certainly does affect basically all of nullsec, especially the blocs.

Sorry not sure where you thought I said anything like that...? You quoted me asking which changes someone wanted me to comment on. Indubitably jump changes have affected Eve, I think only a fool would dispute that.

I somehow misread what you'd written. I blame it on the cold medicine. Disregard.


I still support Chance for CSM X.

You have my vote. The failed high sec antimatter delivery was hilarious.

I'm also surprised to see my sec status suggestion mentioned on your platform. \o/
