White 0rchid for CSM XII

Hi everyone, I'm White 0rchid and I'm happy to announce I will be running for CSM.

Who am I?

I've played EVE on and off since 2008. In the latest 'on' period, I've been subbed for just over 2 years.

A brief timeline and run down of my experiences in EVE:


  • 2008: Omen Incorporated (part of Brutally Clever Alliance) - Living in sovnull pre Aegis (Fountain). These guys helped me get off my feet when I first started and without them I'd most likely have quit soon after subbing.

  • 2009 - 2013: Subbed on and off, mostly running missions/DED sites.

  • 2015: Eve University - Incursions, low class (C1-C3) PvP, C5 WR cap escalations, station trading, small to medium gang low/null PvP. They do a fantastic job at helping new/returning players. I am still a mentor there for players who show interest in PvP. I spent a while on the recruiting team. I also spent some time with Bomber's Bar and now run some of their out of game services.

  • 2016/2017: WAFFLES. Solo/Small gang to large fleet PvP. Logistics/JFs. We are a nomadic group who deploy where the content is. I've recently been appointed a director.


Most of my time spent playing EVE is focused on PvP. In any one week the situations I find myself in can range from solo T1 destroyer roaming to 200+ fleet fights with caps on field (you can check this on my zkill, I am a regular player and not AFK by any means).

I've also written various third party webapps that make use of CCP's apis (I'm a consultant/software developer in the real world and enjoy a problem).

Why run for CSM?

Feedback between players and devs is critical to the game's successful evolution. I believe I am the type of person who would do well in such a role.

While I don't think having a single agenda is ideal, one aspect I'd like to tackle is lowsec, more so I feel it should have reward equal to its risk. At the time of preparing this, each of the top 10 most active (PvP) lowsec systems (24hr) have either higher or equal PvP activity to their nullsec counterpart. Taking into consideration there are 4 times as many null systems as there are low, that's a lot of activity packed into a small area of space, which makes it dangerous. The rewards for living there however, are not particularly fantastic.

There are several other issues that I believe also need attention from CCP, if they are not already looking at them. Session change timers & jump clone irks, certain aspects of citadels (courier contracts, broken tethers, set and forget mentality - space is getting crowded), customer support for hacked accounts, to name a few.

Due to my varied history and diverse experience in game, I feel I would be able to contribute to almost any discussions that arise and need input.

Tldr; I want to get things done because I love this game and the people in it, I'm not in it for the space fame.

We are happy to announce that White 0rchid is SniggWaffe [WAFFLES] official CSM XII candidate. He is smart, open-minded and ready to listen to anyone who has a good idea. His experience as a HR officer and later director in SniggWaffe, one of the most active corps in game will surely help him in his Gods work as CSM representing the voice of the lowsec people who seems to be forgotten by CCP.

A vote for White 0rchid is a vote for Making Low Sec Great Again!

Super excited you chose to run White!

Since I joined Waffles a couple months, White has been a constant aid and source of knowledge when it comes to lowsec. He is always easy to reach and happy to answer any questions. #MLSGA

Check your station.



Edit: He's actually a chill, reasonable guy. He's a dirty Ewwuro, but he's a good man. What I actually enjoy are candidates that are capable and willing to learn more about eve. When you recognize that you don't know everything, you spend less time chest beating and more time learning from others and how to effectively solve problems or present new ideas. Coupled with the fact that he actually has solid knowledge and experience in EVE, I think he'd do a solid job to MEGA.

I am happy White 0rchid is running for CSM. He is a good man with enormous knowledge about lowsec and game in general. I know he is going to do proper job in CSM.

Two lowsec candidates, one pirate and one from faction warfare? Is this real life?

White 0rchid, what are some ways you think you can connect the non-faction warfare lowsec players (PvPers and PvErs) with CCP? What do you feel the major obstacles are towards (again, not faction warfare) lowsec and what is, memes aside, the best way to "make lowsec great again"? Meaning, what has been overlooked by CCP that you feel needs another look or at least brought to CCP's attention?

If you want an idea, you can peruse my thread. Smile

Hello,

My question - what is your viewpoint regarding Faction standings and as a CSM member, what changes would you propose to CCP pertaining to game mechanics for Faction standings ?

Good luck to you in the upcoming CSM election.

Hi there, can you clarify the question? Do you mean in relation to getting a bad faction standing and then having to repair it again?
