Hello everyone.

My name is Noobman. I am the director of operations for the C5 wormhole corporation Hard Knocks Inc.

In this post I am announcing my candidacy for the 11th CSM!

2012
The year in which I started playing EVE. I started out as a miner but after four months I left that life behind me and found my way into faction warfare and other forms of lowsec PVP. To make some ISK I started running incursions, mostly with the goal to buy a pilot with more SP. After a couple of months of grinding I bought Noobman and that is where my EVE story actually starts.

After buying Noobman I joined Hard Knocks Inc as I was very drawn to way of life in wormhole space.

In the years after that I climbed the ladder. Starting out as a PvE FC, then FC'ing the smaller armor fights with continued success I became HK’s preferred FC, which began my career into WH corp administration. In May 2014 I was promoted to “Director of Operations”.

Now
Currently I am still a director in Hard Knocks Inc, in my day to day I deal with logistics, PVP, and diplomatic related things. I also write a monthly post on the state of wormholes on reddit.

I’ve manage POSes, dealt with Recruitment and handled our Finances. I’ve led small single corp invasions to massive multi-alliance invasions and defenses. Some I’ve been successful in, such as Nova and some I’ve failed such as Polaris. I know the ins and outs of w-space, I know the HK trade secrets, and what keeps us competitive in the Meta.

Hard Knocks Inc has been a force in wormhole space that has grown to be a well-known and stable entity for the past few years and I'd like to feel that I have contributed to that success.

Platform
I have extensive knowledge of the wormhole space Meta and the day to day life all wormhole corps deal with. This makes me a good candidate to represent other wormholers and myself in the CSM. Especially with regards to other changes and how they will affect wormhole space (null sec spawns, dread changes, citadels, to name a few recent or upcoming changes).

I'd like for CCP to have a serious look again at the spawning of K-space wormholes, most notably nullsecs, in high class space. The recent changes to the numbers need to be looked at in depth to make sure that high class space is not being starved of content in the form of null sec.

A second look at the possibility of more dual static wormhole classes to make wormhole space more interconnected. This has been something the wormhole community has been talking about for a long time and I'd like to bring it to the table at the CSM.

I want to have a voice in the eventual revamp of capital escalations. You might be surprised but I do think the current method is a bit lucrative. CCP needs someone in their corner that has been doing it for years to get it just right.

I want to always bring to the table “Hey that is going to affect wormholers and here is why”. For instance I want Capitals to always have a balanced place in combat and PvE. Broad changes to Eve needs to always have someone double checking the repercussions for W-space.

Personal life
Outside of EVE people call me Sean, I am 25 years old and I am a Computer Science Major. I am competitive and like to have fun. This year I got to go to EVE Vegas and met up with a load of friends and EVE devs. My plane tickets for Fanfest 2016 are booked and I hope to see many of you there (and of course the Hard Knocks Inc Amarr tournament team: wooo!).

FAQ
Aren't you the cancer that is killing w-space with your rental empire?
No. We don't have a rental empire, if you believed that you have been had.

Aren't you in PL as well?
Yes. I have characters in PL to fly with friends and to use my bigger space toys on a regular basis. If you're still skeptical then you should realize that I would have nothing in Eve if it were not for wormholes. No wealth, no friendships, no success without W-space. W-space will always be where my heart is.

WIll I quit leading fleets and and stop playing Eve for this paper pusher job?
Not a chance.


TL;DR

I'm a self-made, dedicated wormholer. If you know me, regardless of love/hate me, we've probably had a friendly conversation, or shot each other at some point. I've got the time and the knowledge to represent W-space in CSM XI.

Feel free to contact me via in-game chat or evemail or tweetfleet slack!

So what would you do to liven up c6 space, that is claimed to be rented out by one major alliance and defended/expanded by that alliance and their frenemies who, although not blue, shoot each other less often than they work together?

Is this a game balance issue, is there something that ccp could do to break this up, or is it just a result of the massive value in c6 space and the fact that most pvp groups prefer c5 space and its better connections, leaving any potential opposition to this supposed rental empire disinclined to do anything about it. And if so should ccp do something to make c6 space more desirable to pvp groups?

As someone that regularly flew with noobman in Wspace as well as now in Kspace i can tell you the man knows his stuff as well as how negative or positive changes can effect Wspace (Kspace too). Being pretty much the figurehead of almost anything HK has done noobman is a great leader with a wealth of knowledge about the game.

I do have one question : Will you advocate for changes even if it may severly impact your own playstyle in a negative way if for the whole of Wspace/Kspace it ends up being a largely positive change?

Joined W-Space expecting to find that HK + Noobman were assholes.

Was somewhat disappointed when they weren't.

Fastest way to have WH space turned into Dominion SOV nullsec would be to vote for this man. All i can hope for is that the WH CFC coalition has lost enough Merritt by now so there wont be a Horde effect.

HK would not be the corp we are today without Noobman, I can say with absolute certainty that his dedication and ability to inspire is one of the main reasons we've become who we are today, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Also, I can see that K162 hasn't fully collapsed yet and is shitting up your post, go back to being irrevenant.

Ah yes an ex-NOHO salt post, why am I not surprised. I forgot about the amazing CSM that your alliance gave us (corbexx) who went to goons straight away and told everyone he had "alts in wormhole corps" like that was meant to make it completely ok.

Time for someone who is actually active in wormholes to give it a go I think.

I'd like to know more about your feelings on capital escalations. You say they are "a bit lucrative", and I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not. What sorts of changes would you like to see?

I'd also love to hear more about your feelings on capital ships, given the announced plans.
