Hello everyone,

I am Vince Draken, Northern Coalition. Alliance Leader and illustrious Fleet Commander. I am here to announce my candidacy for CSM XII.

Who is Vince Draken?

My subscription to EVE Online began during the open beta in August 2003, actively participating in EVE Online’s achievement over the many years. I am very well known among my nullsec peers for my particular leadership styles, combat record and newsworthy content creation. I have been the leader of NC. for the past 7 years, a well rounded alliance in the aspects of capital and subcapital pvp in null security space. I have the experience and knowledge to bring valuable information, ideas, and opinions to the development team. My alliance has built a foundation of experience, knowledge and expertise within membership, pushing the boundaries and striving to succeed we have come up with new and innovating ways to experience EVE Online.

I have a robust alliance history, being an influential factor in each of their developments:

  • Triumvirate (The Original TRI)
  • The Five [ATUK]
  • Band of Brothers [BOB]
  • Lokta Voltera [LK]
  • Northern Coalition. [NC.]

What can I do for the people of EVE Online?

The CSM needs someone who has the experience, ambition and knowledge that I have. Someone who has been part of and witnessed the progression of EVE Online. As an outlet of communication to the devs; I have the perspective of the highs and lows of this game, past to present, and what kind of direction it needs to remain engaging and fun and challenging.

I would like to work with my fellow veterans of EVE Online, the people who have been there since the get go. To develop the nullsec community with people who desire change to the old, embrace the new, and challenge the ideas of what this game should be.

What things need to be looked at?

  • Citadels
  • Faction Battleships
  • Small and Large Goals of EVE Online
  • Sov fights and the implications of TiDi
  • POS Mechanics (Once and for all)

What I can offer to CCP:

  • 13 Years of Experience and Knowledge playing EVE Online
  • Have been part of the Sandbox that is EVE Online, including being at the core of the major sovereignty wars
  • Strong understanding of the metagame of EVE Online, and nullsec mechanics
  • Ambitious ideas and opinions
  • A strong understanding of what changes were good, great and bad
  • Ability to identify what is broken, and priority levels of fixes

Thank you for taking the time to read my CSM Candidacy post! I look forward to the many conversations, evemails, discord chats, interviews you all may have. I will actively be following this post, so please post questions and I’ll be happy to answer!

+1 for Vince

Vince has a great understanding of null sec game mechanics that is agnostic of space politicking in my experience. He also brings solid problem solving skills to the table. After most engagements in eve regardless of whether they involve his alliance he is able to objectively see what worked and what didn't work in an engagement and with a critical eye often find things that could be changed for the better from CCPs side.

Definitely a guy with a good headspace to be doing the CSM job in my opinion.

What changes to the sov. system would you propose if any? Moons aren't really worth fighting over anymore, any ideas for something new that would spark a conflict?

+1 with his history in eve, politics aside, his insight on what works and what doesn't work as conflict drivers and the mechanics that influence fleet compositions would be an invaluable resource in improving eve gameplay

Also +1 because all kidding aside I enjoy Vince and think he could offer a lot to the community as a whole.

He should win based on the quality of his soundboards alone.
