Utari Onzo for CSM XI

Hi folks,

I am Utari Onzo and I am asking for your votes to join the 11th CSM.

Who Am I - Eve

As the title says, I'm Utari Onzo, member of Pentag Blade and the CVA Alliance. I've been playing Eve since April of 2013, so just around 2 1/2 years. In that time I've done a lot, and learned plenty about the game and community. I've mined and missioned in hisec, got into PVP after my first experiance of wardec, and been in wormholes, faction warfare lowsec and nullsec. I've flown for the CFC/Imperium and Provi-Bloc, various smaller outfits in wormholes and for the Amarr Militia, and have experianced a wide range of both PVP and PVE content Eve has to offer.

Alongside my game antics, I am also an active roleplayer, with ties to the Amarr bloc. I have a passion for the lore of this game, and have partaken in both CCP sponsored, and player run, live events. I was also present for the Amarr Unity event in which we got ambushed by Drifters, and flew as a retainer to Laerise for the Amarr Championship.

My primary interests in the game are mid to large combat fleets, Logistics and Carriers. I've extensive experiance Logi anchoring for the corps/alliances I join, as well as a stint for a couple of NPSI fleets run by Sleeper Social Club while I was in 13. I also have plenty of triage experiance, and is one of the thrills I get out of 0.0/W-Space fights.

Who Am I - Real Life

I'm David Thurlow. I work as a Lead Scaffolder, which means I do a dirty and physical job, so Eve is my release. I don't do corporate meetings, or wear a suit, but my job certainly gives me experiance in dealing with people, especially under pressure. I think my work makes me a "to the point person" but at the same time I know how to do it politely. Work in the Construction Industry in London is not the "lazy" stereotype builder, so it's given me a solid work ethic.

Why I think you should vote for me

I'm not space famous, but I think that's an asset. I'm not busy leading a coalition, or trying to provide guys with content on a plate every time I log in, so I can spend more time focusing on CSM activites. My main ambition is to campaign on behalf of, and be the sounding board for, underdog/smaller groups, and promote asymetrical gameplay that allows a handful of people to bloody the nose of bigger dogs.

To that end my platform will mainly focus on:

Arrow Assistance for NRDS/NPSI playstyles
Arrow Capital Balance, especially in regards to Force Auxillaries and Carrier gameplay 2.0
Arrow Faction Warfare, and possible changes
Arrow W-Space. I'm not a wormholer currently, but I do want to be a supportive voice for those that do live there.
Arrow Any further balance passes on Logistics/Ewar
Arrow Promotion of Live Events and Lore, possible outsourcing of more stuff to Player Communities (akin to the Amarr Unity event.)
Arrow Rebuilding/improving the CCP <> CSM <> Eve Player bonds

Outside of this, I will attempt to put input where I have sufficient knowledge. I can't fix things with a magic wand, but I can be someone who passes ideas/complaints along, as well as give an honest opinion. If I see something CCP presents as not ideal. I won't be afraid to straight up say so, and explain why. If given the chance, I would like to be your sounding board.

Thanks for reading this wall of text, and good luck to all the fellow candidates.

I have already answered some questions over in Backstage, so those interested in following that thread please click here.

As an aside, for those into roleplaying, or even just curious about it or the lore of eve, Backstage is a great forum for discussions and content generation. I also happen to be a moderator over there /shamelessplug.

Not a big fan of Backstage, but I am a big fan of Utari Onzo.

Very pleasant surprise to see you running, you'll be on my ballot for certain. Smile

Best of luck ♥

There's really only three areas of EVE that interest me; Wormholes/Wormhole PVP, roleplay and avatars.

Your stance and ambitions in regard to wormholes and roleplay you've made pretty clear. I'm interested also to hear your thoughts on avatar development; I'm not talking about "WiS" or anything like that, more just in terms of encouraging CCP to introduce more items for our characters and spend a little effort on further development surrounding avatars in general. Though perhaps with an ultimate long-term vision of some form of ingame avatar social interaction or pvp gameplay.

Thank you, and to all the +1ers so far.

In regards to Avatars, the single biggest thing on my wish list is hats. Seriously. It's one of those "little things" (though likely not little at all for CCP to make) that would add to avatars positively, and would be something I'd be ok with being vanity items.

My other ambition is for a wider cross selection on hair styles and tattoos. Right now you're 'race locked' in terms of certain hair styles are only available to certain races. Once you're a capsuleer, you'd naturally be exposed to different cultures and styles across the cluster, so why not be that bold Caldari Civire that decides to get dreadlocks, or a Gallente who gets Tribal marks because they look cool. This one I think should be easier to implement.

Finally, I hope, after we've been in "fixing" mode for Eve for some time now, that CCP will find the courage to dedicate some time and resources back into WiS. We've already seen a basic trip to the bar in action, and honestly that's all it needs to start off with, a few places to visit then expand from there. This one is likely to be on hold till after player stargates and any "new space" comes out, but I would love to see that old door in my quarters get opened, even just a little.

Much more indepth (and awesome) answer than I expected!

Thanks Mr Onzo. Smile

Indeed. This is something that's been suggested for a very long time.

Commissar Kate has/had a long-standing thread suggesting pretty much this. It got a ton of support, even from Devs she'd spoken to apparently, yet was never implemented. You might find some useful discussion there if you haven't seen the thread before.

I agree totally.

I'm even of the mind I'd pay extra for such features, even a double-subscription (1 month pilots license, + 1 month 'station pass') for example. I hope one day we see a feature like this advanced a little. Despite the cultural resistance I'm confident there's a huge segment of the playerbase that would get behind it and pay to use it.

In anycase, I love your stance on wormholes, RP/lore and even avatars. +15 from me. Smile

Utari does well to note his real life job.

Professional is what he has been and "professional" is the best descriptor I have for how I would expect him to handle the responsibilities of being a CSM member. Responsibilities being both to the CSM and to those who elected him.

I have worked (in EVE) with Utari as both his Commanding Officer in PIE, and as another retainer for Senior Captain Laerise in the Amarr Championships.

Charles Surge hit the nail on the head when he emphasized "professional".

Both as a a junior FC for our alliance and as a team mate during the Champiionships, Utari often had very different ideas than I did. He always made his opinion clear, and always made sure his reasoning was sound. Definitely passionate (I wanted to say zealous, but people other than me usually see that as a negative) about his goals, but always capable of seeing other ways to achieve that goal.

I do call bulls*** on not serving content on a aplate for people though. As while he might not be under duress to create the content, I never saw him log in and take a back seat waiting for content. He always jumped in and got the ball rolling without being asked.
Utari, I suppose your point was that you wont have to split commitments, so I'd have to agree there.
