Suitonia for CSM XII

Greetings Friends;

I am throwing my hat into the ring for CSM Candidacy

About Me: Currently I'm most known for the videos I produce on youtube on the eveiseasy youtube channel. My best work by far I feel is the content that I produce aimed at lower SP pilots using cheap fits, such as this video here. I also stream eve online PVP regulary on my twitch.tv channel here. I mostly take part in Solo PVP using Frigate and Destroyer hulls, and feel like I come close to perfectly understanding the solo and small gang PVP meta and scene. I also commentate and help with some behind the scenes things for some eve Esports events, notably, EVE-NT. And have a deep interest in eve tournament play and the eve esports scene in general, My Area of Expertise is most certainly everything that is small-gang PVP in this game.

My Killboard. I'm not linking this to prove I'm elite or to brag, I'm linking this to prove that I'm someone who undocks almost on a daily basis. As of right now I'm the top killer and top solo killer for January 2017 in a 6000 person alliance. I'm not some guy who exists just to write a lot of words on a forum, I'm someone who experiences eve daily, both its greatest and worst moments.

I'm currently in GoonSwarm to learn more about the game from a sov holding perspective, learn daily life in a nullsec alliance and take part in PVP with bigger numbers to increase my knowledge. I Consider myself to be politically neutral, and despite the [CONDI] ticker I hope you'll vote for me in other nullsec alliances. I've been in Pandemic Horde, Dreddit and Sniggerdly the past year, as well as shooting GoonSwarm almost the entirety of my eve career. I'm not a puppet for GoonSwarm, and I'm definitely an advocate for the 'little guy' as almost the entirety of my playstyle revolves around solo or small group play.

While PVP may be my main focus and passion ingame, I've played eve for the past 10 years, I've experienced almost everything eve has to offer and go back to try things now and again. I've farmed and blitzed level 4 missions in highsec, I've ran combat sites of all classes, I've ran anomalies, I've mined, I've hauled, I have done exploration etc. By the nature of my content focusing on alpha clones and 'self-found solo PVP' I've experienced both PVP and PVE from a new player and alpha perspective, at the same time, I'm a grunt and low level FC in the biggest alliance in eve. All your issues are important to me, I'm not just here to advocate my special snowflake ideas that only a mom in Kentucky knows about that doctors hate for this one weird trick.

Why does that qualify me as a good CSM candidate?

I feel like I'm really good at communicating ideas in a presentable way to CCP, focusing on the problems with sensible solutions. A few examples of changes I've driven and influenced were the T3D balance changes last autumn, I was a member of the T3D group, CCP Fozzie even gave me a shoutout in the thread! You can read some articles I wrote here and here. I also feel like the current command bursts and OGB removal were heavily influenced by the blog I wrote on them here.


I can take your problems and present them in a way that will get them noticed by CCP.

How do you contact me?

What is your view on the Kestrel? Does it need a buff or a nerf or is it fine as it is?

Do you think you can put your talent with EVE pickup lines in good use as a CSM member?

Suitonia has the best understanding of game mechanics of anyone I've ever seen and is an excellent pilot to boot. He's got my vote this year.

Check out the positive changes I've made with my blogs, content and being on the T3D focus group. I'm not running for fame or to make myself feel more important, I'm running to increase my capacity of helping the eve community and making eve into a better game for all of us, that I have a proven track record of improving.

I think that is more a player content thing rather than something CCP can expressly help with. If you want to get into PVP in nullsec I'd recommend giving my Kestrel Guide a once over (From page 20 I have almost everything listed there that you would want to engage and how you should engage). My youtube channel has a bunch of cool stuff that you might like (The old Kestrel video that I have has a lot of stuff I go over).

There are also many other great content creators on youtube and twitch that can help you out. Some people who are new player focused, and are good at explaining their thought process that you might want to watch are;

Fintarue - This guy does alpha clone PVP and PVP in lowsec.
Channel ******* Zarvox - Dungeon Tier -3/10 PVPer but easy to see him roam and his thought process.
TheBloodRaids merlin guide on youtube
Iddoeve also has some great stuff!

I do believe CCP could help by signal boosting these content creators, and putting out some kind of content themselves around solo PVP to generate more interest and support for players like you.

The Kestrel is great, and I can't wait to add the CSM tag to a cringy pickup line :D

Could you link the guides you've written? Anything selfless at all?

I've watched lots of his streams and read his Kestrel guide enough to try it for myself and honestly no matter what sort of NPE CCP comes up with, the best quality NPE is going to be players showing how they play, by example; and honestly suitonia is much, much less of an attention hoe compared to others in the genre of Twitch/youtubers.

We need lots more of this guy and others to step up in Eve Online.

Well hopefully there will be a frigate focus group and he will be usefull.
Good luck to him for the election btw.

We'll probably need a BS solo pvp expert too, can't wait Zarvox to apply.

Suitonia is probably the only popular twitch streamer without that attitude, and should be an example to all future streamers that would like to be successful without the use of breasts.

If you think Suitonia has only contributed through videos, you'd be well and truly wrong.

He has helped both the community and the devs with his knowledge, acknowledged by CCP Fozzie here:

https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=496981

He's shared his views with the community, not only in videos, but in several articles, like this one:

https://suitonia.wordpress.com/2015/12/17/why-are-the-svipul-and-confessor-so-much-more-overpowered-than-the-hecate-and-jackdaw/

As well as written several articles aImed at helping others, through CZ:

https://crossingzebras.com/author/suitonia/

You might not like a frigate focus, or wherever. That's fine. I don't think Suitonia claims knowledge of all aspects of the game. That's why the CSM has other representatives too.

But if you are going to criticise him, at least be informed and reasonable about it. He clearly cares for the game and puts in a lot of time to understand topics, think about them and shares his knowledge and experience back again. Seems like perfect qualities for the CSM to me.

Edit: plus, Mr Hyde is already there to fight the frigate menace.

Thecla asked what my thoughts on battleships are on Twitter.

I think that there is a problem with the superfluous amounts of Pirate Battleships there are on the market, from boosts to anomaly ratting escalation chance and burner missions, driving down the value to the point where they are cheaper than the Navy alternatives (Making Navy BS unseen outside of eve tournaments or highsec missions). This also strains T1 Battleships somewhat too, as for less than a 100m extra you gain a huge power increase, which being 1/3rd of what your normally pay for a decent fit T1 BS, is usually a no brainer. StarFleetCommander, a Volta/Triumvirate FC mused with me on Teamspeak about, how, 3 years ago, Triumvirate were running Machariel fleets in the DR. And they lost a 200 man Mach Fleet, and then another a week after. This cleaned out the entirety of Jita of Machariels and resupplying their Machariel fleet became a huge issue. He said he recently checked Zkillboard, and 4x the amount of machs they lost are being lost on a monthly basis with no effect on Jita.

I think escalations are a good thing however, since they encourage people who usually stay in one system ratting, to venture out and run an escalation in another system. Mixing up gameplay for them, and perhaps, creating content for someone else who manages to catch them outside their usual safezone. I'm not sure how to reduce pirate BS proliferation, perhaps pirate ship BPCs could be removed from escalation sites.

I think Navy Battleships need to go through a balance pass, notably; Here are some of my preliminary thoughts on the ones that most stand out to me.
Navy Dominix - It performs worse than the regular Dominix in some situations due the lack of the tracking speed and range bonus. It got the hybrid damage bonus as a harken back to the old Dominix. It exists to make EFT generals who haven't undocked in the past 2 years to salivate over 2k DPS fits, there are better Vindicator fits for this for less ISK. Personally I'd just add the Dominix bonuses and keep the hybrid bonus.
Navy Armageddon - Just like the N.Dominix, it exists for people to remember the days of the old Armageddon. The Navy Apoc is a better laser damage platform because having tracking+optimal, with way better fitting, and secondary stats like speed and targeting is better than 15% DPS, utility high and a bigger drone bay. I'd change this to the current Armageddon with the extra stats from navy, +1 low, and slightly bigger drone bay.
Navy Megathron - The Vindicator is cheaper, does more DPS, has a 90% web with the same tracking bonus, and the extra HP on the Vindi almost makes up for the 8th low. I think if the Mega got a 50% Large Hybrid role bonus, with 5% damage per level, and -2 Turrets. It could be an interesting ship, 2 utility highs on a Gallente Blaster Battleship would be a nice niche that seperates it a bit more from the Hyperion and Vindicator.
Typhoon Fleet - The turret bonus should be swapped for something more useful
Tempest Fleet - Give it the same damage as normal Tempest 5% rof to 7.5%


As for Battleships in general, I think they could use a lot better targeting stats (Sensor Strength, Scan Res, Targeting Range). I wrote this a long time ago https://docs.google.com/document/d/1WeoQNrzcbohR_0nfMVCLIneCTFJF7YQN7dBhxaUhra4/edit . Most BS can't even lock a target past 100km naturally, which hurts MJD offensive plays, I also feel like for the cost of bringing a BS to the field for small gang (The warp speed/mobility), they are far too easy to control through ewar like ECM/Damps, with recent tiericide passes, there are many cruiser hulls with better targeting stats than them. It would be nice if the Sensor Strength and Lock Range got buffed to help deal with these ewar types, also, I feel that scan res can be adjusted upwards a tad.
