This guy inspires, create content, and he does it with humor, smiles and a bit of sarcasm.

But better yet ... not corrupted by *bittervetness* and negativity !!
People actually LIKE being blown to pieces by this man - because he has passion!

We need new eyes, new blood, new strength in CSM ! ... its a new dawn, a new age, a new expansion cycle !
I do not believe you need to know every aspect of EVE, thats why there is more than 1 CSM!
You need passion and an open creative mind, more than playing years ....

My vote is going towards the innovative positive progress of EVE ! - Chance Ravinne Shocked

Chance is a big part of what got me rolling solo bomber PVP and helping to restore SergalJerk to its glory as the best small gang covert ops corp in the game. He's inspiring, he's charismatic, and he seems to have an attitude that suggests he really wants to improve the marketing of this game and get more players in.

More players = more targets = more deliveries = yes.

Chance, your opinions on hisec are quite valid, but bumping and hyperdunk setups having no consequence is something many players find toxic. Do you think it's a good idea for suspicious activity that leads to setting up a gank to generate a suspect flag, which offers the opportunity for counterganking to become a playstyle?

Example: I'm flying a Bowhead, hauling thirty quadrillion isk worth of ...idunno, compressed marauders. Some hoser slams a Machariel into me, and knocks me off my alignment. I attempt to re-align, and he bumps me a second time. At this point the Machariel goes suspect, giving him a choice: risk being fired on or risk me warping off. Suicide ganking right now is too formulaic, and player skill has almost completely left it at this point - everything's solved. Adding this element of risk and counterplay would put a LOT of fun back into it.

Sure I might ship my bumper down to a Stabber, but it would definitely not reduce the number of players suicide ganking. Heck, it might become a good way to get fights in hisec, too, through escalation and bait-bumping. I get a couple bumps on with my Mach, and his Stratios buddy uncloaks to try to countergank. Now we've got a fight on our hands, and it has turned suicide ganking into a form of bidirectional PvP. It would also open up the game to more new players that don't understand or like the concept of bumping having no consequence to the bumper (which is absolutely stupid from the perspective of both law AND physics).

By the way, I love your idea of a cloaking inhibitor. This would create a very interesting shift in playstyle - but there's one problem. Gate camps - and cloaking being one of the few ways to escape certain styles of bubble camps. Just keep that in mind if the design goes forward.

Another question: what do you think about faction warfare plex farming? Personally I think there is a large part of the community that has a problem with it, and I had an interesting thought about how to solve it. What do you think about interdictors being able to launch warp disruption probes, but only inside a faction warfare complex that an interdictor could normally enter? It's definitely not a hard counter to them warping away (they can MWD out of the bubble unless you land a proper tackle) but it certainly adds an element of risk to a playstyle that is currently (much like suicide ganking) very solved and very stagnant.

I am concerned the EVE codebase doesn't provide enough support for bump triggers -- plus there are so many interactions naturally at gates and stations that innocent players could get flagged without having done anything wrong.

CCP's attempt to address this with their latest Higgs Anchoring Rigs is a step in the right direction: providing modules that give players ways to avoid bump-griefers (but still requires planning and trade-offs by capsuleers). I'd also like to see changes to the security standings system, though it's a very sensitive area and should be treated carefully.

This is a very good point and not something I had considered. Perhaps a more balanced structure would simply cause all cloaks to slowly draw more and more capacitor the longer someone is cloaked in system. So a transport passing through for a minute wouldn't really be affected, but an AFK player would be caught with his (stylish grimdark) pants down.

I literally know nothing about FW balance, so I can't really comment intelligently here! It sounds good in theory but it's also counterintuitive. I'd rather see CCP make changes to the way rewards are determined than to upend the meta entirely with a singular exception to longstanding rules about empire space.

This is a severe handicap when it comes to making deliveries in low/nullsec. Sad

Just a note everyone, I've updated my campaign post with some links, including a link to my recent interview with CapStable which includes a lot more detail about my thoughts, goals, and ideas.

If you have a chance, check it out!

Chance:

Just wanted to mention that I think you hit it out of the park during your Cap Stable interview. The interview is what garnered my vote. I thought it was the best done of the last several. Your energy is undeniable, yet you present yourself quite well. I look very forward to seeing what you might be able to do.

Thanks!

Your stance on Wardecs in General is what would be the decided factor for my vote on you. Although I agree the system needs to change, there are a few things I would like to have addressed.

For the most part you seem to under the belief that the 'Victims" Of a wardec are just that Victims.

From my experience, rarely are defending corps often have several things in there advantage. The First and Foremost being numbers. Common decced entities like Brave Newbies, and the such, out number every Wardec Alliance corp out there.

They lose massesively because focus is not applied to the Aggressors. But when they do put focus they end up kill a neat amount of ships. (Lookin at you Drop Bears)


Other smaller corps often have the advantage of having the Aggressors having to come to them, in their home systems. Home system were the targets are have the ability to have a counter ready to undock.

For the most part from what I've seen, The Victims of Wardecs are only Victims because they allow themselves to be the victim. There are exceptions. But if you create or corp made of sub 4 month players your bound to get hurt, Is that a problem with EvE in your eyes? EvE was built on the idea of actions should have reactions.


With that, I ask, Do you feel that Wardecs are a problem due to Older players picking on younger Players? You use of Victims seems to make me seem so, Personally at least. Or do you believe it is underlying layer that belongs with the NPE and the tutorials not properly explaining things with detail?


If you had free reign to change the Wardeccing system, How would do so?

War dec Dodging, a corp closing once it is decced, and reforming with the same name, Do you feel this is an issue as it basically defeats the wardec feature as a whole? Or do you feel that Wardecs are unbalanced in the favor of the Deccer that it is a necessary need until the system can be reworked?

Thanks for the response o/

The wardec system is unintuitve because it allows someone to bribe CONCORD to look the other way, but doesn't (for some reason) allow the defenders to counter bribe CONCORD to protect them. Because of this, wars can be extended indefinitely even if the defending group has a gigantic fiscal advantage.

Yes people can defend themselves, but they also have to humor troll wars that are declared by organizations with no intent of having a war against them in any military or financial sense. WINGSPAN could wardec 100 corps tomorrow then sit in w space, showing the pointlessness of this backward system.

I see many of u are questioning his experience as a pro.. or vet in the game...

I dont think he is a good pvper or a pro.. but he creates content inspires fun.. as a solo pilot with 1600 kills.. i couldnt care less if he knows how the hit the right mod or has spent time in null with the power blocs or knows much about highsec wardeccing noob merc corps.

All i care about is at the end of the day EVE is a game that when played should be fun and entertaining.. and a lot of vets have forgotten that. eve is a game for fun NOT A JOB or has a specific agenda to push for CSM... when i see his vids and what he is all about.. he is only person i believe that doesn't have a specific agenda and isnt a puppet for one of the factions. but a representative of just having a good time in a video game.. which is what eve should be about.

That is why he 's got my vote.

While you clearly aren't what some would describe a "bittervet" I think that's a very good change from the traditional CSM layout. It's great to finally see a marketing guy step up to the mark and I'll certainly be considering you as my vote.

Just a few questions.

Considering that it has been deeply ingrained in people's minds that Eve is a "space sociopath spreadsheet simulator". How do you plan to go about dispelling the bad press that surrounds eve online?

Do you intend to push for more traditional television advertisements or focus primarily on an internet audience?

If you had to pick one thing to be emphasized more/at all in the tutorial what would it be and why?

and finally

Considering all those unclaimed PLEX's sitting in your account have you ever thought about making it space rain on unsuspecting newbros?

I would agree that it has problems but you haven't answered my questions, although changing an entier wardec system is a big one to answer, I will admit but, I'll shorten it down.


Do you feel that Corp rolling should be allowed?

Do you feel that the Wardec systems harms NPE? If so, How do you propose you fix it?

Also,

You are a younger player, I consider myself one as well, we both have one thing in common. You've explored for your entire time in EVE, I've been in the Merc/Wardec business my entire time in EVE. I know next to nothing about Sov Space, Lowsec, Indy, Mining and the such. I assume that it is about that same way for you.

How do you feel competent enough to handled these topics as a CSM?

Chance is high up on my ballot with this current platform. As someone who went though the NPE as a solo player, I think the only thing stopping me quitting was my extreme stubbornness. Any improvements to the NPE and tutorial will be positive for the game, and combined with improved marketing (This is Eve II! Big smile) could improve the player numbers by a significant factor. One thing I would like to put out there is that all the marketing in the world won't work until there is a better NPE. 10 million people trying the game and quitting does nothing but put strain on the servers. But, if Chance sticks to this platform, he should absolutely be in your CSM shortlist.
