Gevlon Goblin for CSM XI

The CSM is in horrible state.

  • Members leak
  • They represent big null powerblocks who game the election with spy candidates (Ali Aras, Corbexx...)
  • They openly feud to the point where Endie called another member a Nazi war criminal
  • They lost the trust of CCP
  • Players barely vote since it's clear the CSM isn't representing them
  • The final straw was member Sion suggesting them to get control over which player can talk to CCP by special forums where CSM decides who can post to CCP and what


The ultimate problem: EVE is a competitive (PvP) game, where groups of players fight each other. Each player is biased for his playstyle and make suggestions that are directly conflicting with the interests of other player groups: for example miners want harder ganking while gankers want easier. Being well-informed and experienced in the game makes no one a good advisor to CCP, it makes him a dangerous snake who will influence devs to cater to his group at the expense of other groups. My thoughts are about helping highsec groups and groups like MoA while directly hurting Goons. For me as player, that's completely fair. For me as CSM member, that's a clear abuse of my position as I must serve the whole playerbase which include Goons. The only way for me to be unbiased is to keep my mouth shut. Same for everyone else.

So I call all players to boycott the CSMXI election! This obviously means not to vote for me either! My candidacy is only to be able to speak in CSM election forums, participate in CSM candidate interviews and such. If enough trolls vote for me to be elected, I solemnly swear to be completely inactive on the CSMXI until removed and will never offer my biased crap to CCP.

My idea is that if enough people take my advice and vote for nobody, CSM will be shut down and CCP will only listen to devs. While they will have their shortcomings and mistakes (who doesn't), at least they will be unbiased and genuinely interested in the long-term survival of the game.

AttentionVote for the end of CSM! Vote for nobody!Attention

Political candidate campaigning on the platform of the system is corrupt and needs to die in a fire... what could possibly go wrong.

The CSM may have it's faults but it's certainly better to have it than to not. Either way, this is not the right venue for you to voice your hate, this is for people who are actually interested in campaigning and becoming a CSM member which it is obvious you are not.

Are you worried that being on the CSM will mean you'll have less time for blogging?

How do your potential voters know that you will not be like the politicians who say "We are for reducing/removing the EU parliament", then pitch up and enjoy all the freebies once elected?

I disagree and I believe I'm not alone. Let the people decide on this topic. If the voter turnout increases from last year, they decided against me. If it decreases, they with me. If they vote me in, they are with me and they are trolls.

They don't have to trust me. I'm not asking anyone to vote for me, I asked them to not vote. I explicitly called those who vote for me "trolls".

I fully support this.

I support Gevlon's message. To do your part for a goon-free CSM, vote gevlon or don't vote at all.

Thank you dear sir! You were my inspiration to run for CSM, as the hard work of you and your good friend and alliance mate Endie made my campaign necessary. If CSM members were like Sugar Kyle, I wouldn't have a chance.

I'm looking forward to work with both of you and with Xenuria. I'm sure we'll have wonderful time together drinking the beers that CCP Falcon will invite us for.

Having gotten a feel for Gevlon over the past few years of reading his blog, if this were the case he is a master of deception the Mittani could only hope and dream to be. However, I doubt that. Gevlon has been pretty open and strightforward, so I doubt he would be your typical politician.

Edit: that said: I think I might pitch into this as well.

Cloaking is the closest thing to a "Pause Game" button one can get while in space.

they could always vote for me, I don't know -insert word- about the game. in fact, I would always ask CCP for 1.4 quintillion isk, or something equivalent to 3^1.7trillion isk.
