Tora U will have my vote. I used to fly with u guys a while back as P42ALPHA. You have a very good understanding of the game, when I have spoke with you in TS-Even when I would do some things to really set you off(break the rules I agreed to when I joined Marmite) You were very level headed and talked it out. And as a leader of a alliance like the one you have, you were very personable, and from what I could see you enjoyed and took in everyones opinion equally. Was refreshing coming from 0.0, learned a lot about Eve leadership from you. TY



I hope the best for You. If you do get elected to the CSM, I feel you will be a great benefit to EVE online. Tell Blades I say hello, another good dude in Marmite!

Though as small as we are, and all ex-Marmite players our corp will be voting for u. But we will still be WD'ing u guys FOR-EVER-er:)

07 Tora!!

Stay on topic. If it's attention you seek, let me know and I will send you a postcard.
It would seem that in your campaign thread, someone explaining why in their opinion your aren't a good candidate for the CSM would seem to be remarkably on topic.


The more you write, the more people laugh at you. At you, not with you. It's important that you're able to recognize the difference if you expect to be taken seriously. This is as true for Saeger1737 as it is for you, Lucas.

Perhaps try to restrict your comments to topics where individuals who haven't hurt you are posting? That way you'll be less inclined to post emotionally and hopefully your words will deserve consideration as opposed to derision.

Dear Tora,

I have to say I agree with and like a lot of things here. I believe your ideas on ganking are somewhat scewed. Simply increasing punishment on the ganker does not help the person who just lost possibly everything to their name. I understand being able to gank is better than nothing but how about changes to help the newbro. Essentially increasing the time between ganks doesnt help the dead. Killing an empty pod a station spit out wouldnt remove the taste of loss from my mouth.


Increasing war dec prices may lower the ammount of wars but this may also hurt that highsec group wanting to fight their rivals or fresh merc groups and so on.


You have been my alliance leader a few times now and a reliable friend, you are a smart man. I agree with your goals but addressing them in a balanced way is the hard part.

If anything I wrote is outdated I apologise. I went over your campaign a few days ago.
Any Don Purple idea is good, you should run for CSM Blink I have no problems with my ideas not being the best around and am always willing to listen to better ideas. In the end we all want a better Eve. Which way we get there is up to all players in Eve, not just a small group.

Yes yes yes yes

I think when you pod someone you should have a chance to get 25%-30% of there implants drop into there corpse.

Brain farts indeed... read lovingly crafted suggestions. The second one is a pure quality of life feature... we all know what multiboxers do, so why make their existence such an unnecessary clickfest? If you are in a station with stuff that belongs to any of your accounts/alts it should be in the same hangar.

Tora all the way. Some think he's a character... some think he has character. I'm in the second group.

1) Yes if there is a balancing pass made so implant prices don't collapse. If that happened the salvaging of implants will become kinda pointless.

2) No, I don't think multiboxing needs a buff.

Hello,

Thank you for having the same passion that many of us share playing this game.

I do not agree with you revised ganking procedure, EVE is not a safe place, not even "high security" systems, ganking should not be revised. i suggest inserting a new item, Secure passworded containers, items that only capital ships can carry that have an encryption level based on a skill, also a decryption skill would be needed in order for them to be opened and it would take say 15 days for a lv 5 decryptor to hack a lv 5 encrypted container.

People should not be more baby treated, they should organize themselves when transporting valuables in high sec and not afk freight 15 billions of stuff, simple as that.

Plus the "stations will spit you out" if you gank is just pointless. Stations have always been and always should be the only safe place for pods and ships (maybe not characters?).

i do not agree on a afk timer for cloackers but we need a system to counter macro/botting, this should be not done through change in ingame mechanics but should be adressed by ccp internally with some monitor program.

The mining boredom is a problem, i would make it more profitable but more challenging, changing the mining ships in a way that requires them to be dynamically managed, adding content, making mining belts casinos

People that want to avoid wardecks can stay in npc corp, the current system ensures only the best business models survive, generating stronger more coordinated and cohese entities. The current wardeck system works just fine.

People should not be forced in leaving npc corp, it is a good aggregator and many people use them for various purposes.

The industry changes i approve of

Empire POSes should simply have a limitation on defences that are possible to fit

Sorry but you do not have my vote, especially because of the changes you propose to high sec.

The Marmite name makes everyone look for the hidden agenda.

I won't vote for Tora simply because of his stance against afk cloaking. AFK cloakers are an annoyance but the only thing I think of is me being trapped in a dead-end system unable to jump out because there is a gatecamp and unable to log off because hostiles have probes out.

And then I have to set an alarm clock every 20 minutes to prevent losing my ship and implants?

I will accept an end to afk cloaking if they will introduce a way to log off safely without getting killed.

I knew I took a risk here, as Marmites isnt the most loved alliance in game. But people who know me well, also know that I can set aside my personal issues and go for the bigger picture.

I don't see why you can't log off after you timer has run out ?

I'm not posting positionally. You leaping in to launch personal attacks at me in defense of your beloved Tora would seem to be an emotional response here. Tora claiming that someone pointing out reasons he would make a bad CSM representative is "off topic" is an emotional response. Tora has never hurt me. A useless person sitting around in highsec running a corporation which is amounts to "griefing new players and supporting Gevlon Goblin" is hardly going to have an effect on a high level trader and industrialist operating primarily out of nullsec.

I post in this thread because I oppose the campaign and will voice my opinions wherever I wish. If you don't like that, tough. Go cry to someone else about it. Or don't, who really cares.

The fact that you're in marmite is neither here nor there. The fact that your campaign here is terrible and anyone having read posts by you or your alter ego General Lemming knows that what spills out of your head is pure unfiltered garbage is what will put most people off of voting for you.

I think you're confusing multiboxing to having more then one character active (which can happen on the same account)

...

Either you log off cloaked, ewarp, and your ship sits in space uncloaked and probable for--I can't remember, 30 seconds or a minute? when I was in w-space I always safe logged--or you safe log off, which involves deactivating all modules, including your cloak, and sitting there while the timer runs down.

In the former case, active hunters with probes out can likely pin you and blow up your ship once you've left the game. In the latter case, you're basically spamming d-scan hoping that you don't see 4 or more combat probes before your timer ticks down--it's 30 seconds, so any good prober in system, with probes out, is going to catch you--and cloaking up and bouncing safes if you do see probes, in which case you have to start over again at 30 seconds.

Or you can just cloak up and wait.

My support of any CSM candidate is tied to some specific things....

1) Remove the wardec-dodge exploit.

After an aggressor has paid good ISK for a war, a defender can just drop corp and reform under a new corp for negligible comparative costs, effectively ending the war and making wars consensual only. This exploit must be closed, period.

One remedy is to have wars follow individuals if they leave corp. Another is to increase corp creation costs to 50m ISK+

2) Incentivize war defense.

Put all aggressor wardec fees into a bucket claimable by the defender or his allies, based on aggressor assets killed.

3) Incentivize corp membership (dis-incentivize NPC corp membership)

Increase NPC corp taxes to 60% for players older than 30 days. If you want to be safe from wardecs and hide out in an NPC corp forever, fine, but its going to COST you for that privilege.

Further, I do not think wardec fees should be increased as a priority, until the above issues are addressed first.

I do not think ganking mechanics changes are a priority, ganking has already been nerfed (as wars have), and there are guides on how to avoid it.

For my support (for what its worth), I would also invite Sabriz to comment on the above.

I think ganking is a part of Eve and I want it to stay, but not as we have it now. Right now it’s to easy to warp out of a station, gank something, warp your pod back to station and wait till the timer runs out. This needs to be balanced more. I would like to see people still able to gank, but only when you aren’t in an NPC corp and when you do, you will not be able to dock / logoff for at least 30 minutes. If you get podded and wake up in station, the station auto kicks you out till the 30m timer runs out. I also want the ganked ship, not to drop more then 25% of the loot. This way the ‘good’ guys at least have some way to get revenge and ganking for profit is reduced.


The net effect of this change would be that less people would gank with implants (whatever) while you have more people getting complacent and hauling even more loot. It won't reduce ganking for profit and podkills are essentially meaningless without implants being destroyed.

Having met Tora at Evesterdam, flown in Marmite Collective on an alt, and being heavily involved with hisec pvp for a reasonable amount of time before my current stint in OE I will unequivocally denounce any sort of run by Tora Bushido for the CSM.


While we may agree on a number of issues facing the game I cannot endorse Tora as a worthwhile representative of any player in EVE, especially those he claims to represent the most. He has absolutely no ability to effectively communicate or conduct himself with any sort of respect for his audience or peers. In other words, he is self-involved, selfish, and short sighted. I base this conclusion based upon his behavior during Evesterdam presentations (talking, joking with neighbors, generally not giving the presenter their due respect), and my experience with him as an alliance leader (not encouraging content creativity, a supportive environment to try new things in hisec).

TLDR, while his ideas may be appealing I would not want this person representing hisec pvpers to CCP or representing CCP's ideas to the players

I'll also say most of his outline in the OP is ill-formed garbage but I'm intentionally avoiding that to focus on the real issue i'm trying to point out.

Less loot anywhere in fighting sucks.

People afk cloak in systems to prevent ISBoxer people from 1 button warping 25 mining ships into a area and again 1 button pressing all the locking and mining.
Furthermore, the broken mechanic of being able to see everyone in local in null sec reinforces this.

Funny though, your from null sec and NOT ONE mention of it? Really?
What you have to offer is little to nothing.

You might have different views on things in Eve and real life and that's ok. The biggest difference between you and me is, I tell people that right away, straight in the face and not on the forums when it suites me. But you're right, making jokes at a great thing as Evesterdam is terribad. And laughing with the entire group about good presentations is also very bad. Having fun with you at the bar, when you accept our beers..... Ahh, well, I think you get the point by now. Very disrespectful to use an event as Evesterdam for your own personal issues. You're probably the last to lecture me about respect. Blink
