That seemed to be quite the consideration though, if I read the minutes correctly. Highseccers are tired of getting screwed with.

What they need to do is buckle down, and make nullsec better so people WANT to go out there and socialize and play with others.

This whole miner bumping thing the past several months has just been one players massive ego trip.


If some highsec players are tired of being screwed with, maybe they should get off their collective backsides and do something about it, they have the exact same tools as everybody else, they should use them. I'm a highsec player myself, doing mainly PvE and industry stuff as well as a bit of wormhole spelunking and I have no problems with the game as it is.

Highsec is too safe.

Fixed that for you Smile.

Remove standings and insurance.

At least I can spell entitled, like a good and proper forum alt.

I'm not throwing tantrums. I am only putting all my efforts towards the theme-parking of Eve so it appeals to more types of players.

Once again, James 315 will be democratically elected, but this time, as the Supreme Protector of the CSM.

Will buying New Order shares now be used to fund James315's glorious rise to the true savior of highsec?

And if so, how will my potential investment be used?

Revenue from the purchase of shares is currently used for the reimbursement of any ganking catalysts that Knights of the New Order expend in their crusade against the bot-aspirants.

Like Kainotomiu Ronuken said, the shareholder capital is used to reimburse ganking costs. The Knights send a Termination Notice to every miner that gets ganked (copies of and responses to which can be seen on Minerbumping's official fanmail thread here).

So every shareholder ISK goes towards saving high sec and spreading the cheer.

At the expense of the type of player that allowed eve to thrive and live for ten years, while dozens, if not hundreds, of other MMOs that cater to your themepark types have suffered and died within a few months.

You know you're an EVE celebrity when you don't even need a campaign to have a CSM spot assured. Roll

This ought to be interesting...

So james shows his true face as a CCP pet...

I would of thought he'd oppose this CSM crap.

Oh well, there will always be some other FIGHT THE MACHINE personality to be interested inTwisted

Because Far-que... That's why.

Everybody wins if James 315 is on the CSM. We've all heard the common complaint about "nullsec dominated" CSM positions, and a lack of highsec representation... well here's your chance, hi-dwellers! James is 100% dedicated to the betterment of highsec, so get your votes ready!

I don't think I'll be voting for James. His New Order movement aside, I cannot bring myself to support a player that screencaps "miner tears" and posts them on a blog for all to see. I want someone with a bit more class to go to Iceland.

Problem is, James, you are not a game designer. You can only suggest as a CSM member. Remember, the CSM is primarily a PR stunt and unpaid PR/ Development feedback minion.

CSM candidates: all we want is the promise to give us prompt information, be active and visible, be approachable if we have problems, and shout in CCP's face in a professional way if they start to do something obviously ********. Not push any agenda.

That sounds like the job description of a professional forum-warrior rather than a leader. =P

You are right that CSM has no powers at all, only small privileges like their access to inside information and CCPs ear. Based on those qualities alone it doesn't matter one bit to me who gets those positions.

However, since who gets these positions is decided democratically, it is also a popularity contest in a way, and when people amass a following based on their support of certain player philosophies, the CSM election is essentially a battle of ideas. If James 315 wins, its a win for our great sandbox, and the infinite possibilities, both good and bad, that come from it. If people like Jester win, then it's a win for themeparking, stability, monotony, grinding a known path inside a safe friendly cocoon.

The CSM election won't directly do much, but it will settle which of these competing player philosophies is more popular and more accepted in EVE. Such wide barometer of public opinion will surely influence game development in the future.

I suggest you read his latest blog and I quote


"Highsec mining will be nerfed into oblivion. We'll have one or possibly two different types of ore available, just so new players can learn how to distinguish between them on the overview"

"Highsec missioning will be nerfed into oblivion. Nothing higher than Level 2 missions will be available. All the rest goes into lowsec."

"People need to be rewarded for their risks. Highsec carries little risk, while low/null carry great risk. That means lowsec and nullsec PvE should be much more rewarding."

There is a lot more, read it if you want a good laugh.

So James does not want a high sec or a carebear in Eve. I know there are many that don't "do" carebears but who do you think mines the trit for your ships. Carebears that's who.

So there is too much ISK in Empire. Who has the best minerals, the best moons, the best rats. Well it aint empire.

James is just another goon who wants to destroy Eve, he does not want to better high sec he wants to destroy it.

Vote for "anyone but James"

Get him an interview, as well.

James has proposed a slightly different purpose for HighSec. It wouldn't flat out destroy HighSec, because it includes it as part of the risk/reward system. Right now, many of us have no real drive to push into LowSec, because we can do what we need entirely within HighSec. We can progress well entirely within HighSec. We can accumulate vast quantities of ISK in HighSec.

Part of his proposal is increasing the value of LowSec. As it stands right now, LowSec is kinda the red headed step child that few really bother with. Increasing the reward for venturing into LowSec creates new opportunities for many things. A mining op to LowSec with some security might be worth it, for the right reward. And when a mining op into LowSec isn't just fish in a barrel, maybe targeting mining ops in Low Sec becomes less palatable. From there, LowSec becomes a bit safer for housing some industrial types, while still maintaining a degree of risk, while still being less risky than trying to ninja into someone's 0.0 sov and steal their minerals.

This opens the door for new types of interactions. Right now, holing up in HighSec is a mostly viable method for avoiding interaction. When interaction is forced, people cry. We need them to be less worried about playing with themselves in public, and get out there and play with others. If that means that miners can't AFK mine ice or trit 23/7, I'm not sure that's a huge loss. After initial upheaval, the market normalizes.

As these interactions work with each other, the net effect is that LowSec becomes a safer place, HighSec isn't as desirable, the market improves for Industrialists, combat ships remain in demand, and people spend more time playing the game instead of watching Netflix while their ore holds fill themselves.

This type of approach endorses the idea of sandboxing, because it attacks the idea that your pillow fort really will keep the monsters outside.
