Dovinian for CSM7

I'm Dovinian, or Tyler Lehfeldt as my mother knows me. I'm 23 (24 soon!), I live in Washington State and work in the printing industry, specifically the pre-press side of things. I'm married to a wonderful woman but we don't have any kids yet. In Eve, I'm in Dreddit, the corporation from Reddit, which is the founding corporation for Test Alliance Please Ignore. You've probably heard of us, we're terrible at this game. I've been playing EVE seriously for 2 years and have accomplished a lot in that short time. I originally tried the game in 2005 and 2007 but the New Player Experience was terrible and I wasn't able to stick with it. Dreddit, being very newbie friendly, helped helped me learn about parts of the game that have no documentation and are confusing and since then I've been having a great time.

I'm running so that I can help the CSM keep CCP focused on the type of improvements that made Crucible such a fantastic expansion. I'm hoping that it was just the beginning of even more great things headed our way. As the paying players who make EVE possible, we deserve the best experience that CCP can provide for us. I was very relieved to see that CCP was able to swallow their pride and change focus back to EVE and actual spaceships. This shows, to me, a sincere change and new found focus from CCP which is something we desperately needed.

It's hard for a CSM candidate to promise specific changes, and I don't want to make promises I can't fulfill. I'm going to work my best to bring my ideas (and those of my constituetes, the players) to the relevant and interested developers so they can be best improved and worked on.

I fully support the continued efforts to improve a few major areas of the game; the POS management system still need improvements, corporation and alliance management interfaces and mechanics need an overhaul, and I support the implementation of an alliance-based roles system. I know the CSM does not specifically add or remove features to the game, but these are a few of the major areas that I would like to work with CCP to improve and refine.

Ship balancing is an aspect of EVE that needs constant attention and tweaks. Many small changes over time are better than large reactionary changes that might be "too much" and break things even further.

A vote for me is a vote to continue relevant and necessary changes to build on the success of the Crucible expansion. We still have a long ways to go, but on the CSM I will work my hardest to get us as close as I can.

Reserved, for what I'm not entirely sure yet. But it's what the cool kids do.

Could you explain why we should vote for you and not Xenuria of the Marcabian 5th Invasion Fleet?

Because Xenuria's already locked up that one-website-whom-we-can't-explicitly-mention's vote.

My name is Xystance and I endorse Dovinian for CSM.


Edit: Also I believe there was a comment about why my previous post was deleted when I was, as an internet spaceship celebrity swinger highsec wrangler noob trainer roller derby pilot, simply endorsing a candidate. Moderation with a hammer is bad mkay?

I support Dovi because he stands for what we believe in. Mostly beep and beep beep.

Phantom beeping in.

Please understand that posts like "beep" are considered spam as they bury legit question to the candidate, they also rob the candidate the chance to reply to these questions.

Phantom beeping out.

Where did all the posts that had "BEEP BEEP" as well as content go? Did you dudes just do ctrl+f beep and delete all of them?

The Beep beep posts are the sound the dovi bus makes (dovinians titan) and it is something we are very fond of. And it shows our unnerving support for dovinian.

Then delete the spam posts, don't lock threads that are entirely legitimate even if some of the responses aren't.

Thank you CCP Phantom for unlocking the thread.

I guess I should ask a question to legitimize this post. For ship balancing, do you have plans to bring up Titans tracking better than Battleships?

A brave man stepped up to challenge the establishment. He was tired of the sick popularity contests, he wanted to make a difference. He stood tall, looked The Man squarely in the eye, and told him 'Beep beep'.
