Dear noobman. Can you shed some light on what your experience in wspace beyond c5 and cap escalations is? Is there a reason anyone who doesnt live in c5 space should vote for you?

I have a similar question.
Do you have any idea on how to repopulate WH-space?
Besides farming corps and two hand full of seriouse PvP entities there is mostly dead space.

What is your imagination of Citadels and Capitals in WH-space?


Even though you might be A big name in WH-space, you should tell us some more before you get my vote. Blink
It's not only about knowledge, it's also about your vision on the future of WH-space

Every CSM election is the same, people think that the person running will be able to get their "vision" implemented. It just isn't how it works at all, CCP don't come to the CSM and say "ok what do you want us to do to fix wh space give us your list and lets work on it". They will be asked their opinion on problems and the solutions CCP is working on at the moment.

Sure ask them what they like and dislike about WH space but when you want them to have specific plans to fix issues then stop thinking their solutions will ever be made into a reality.

I prefer to vote for the person, their history they have had in WH space, the time i know they put into the game, the amount of time/effort i have seen them put into debating WH issues in public with others. Noobman meets that criteria 100% that's why i vote for him because i probably will disagree with a few of his specific plans anyway, but when i do i know we would be able to go to him and explain why and get a rational response from him as to why he would go for an idea we don't like if that makes sense.

Noobman, good to hear your running for CSM.

I have a question for you what do you think the next big thing to effect wormhole space after the Citadels expansion.

Active player in multiple areas of the game, FC and content creator - this is the kind of CSM candidates we need.

We may not have agreed on everything during our time in wormhole space, but I trust you'll work for the greater good for everyone Smile

You misunderstand my questions, if your reply was directed at me in some manner. I wish to know if he is willing to sit down an evening with a c1 industrial corp and discuss the aspects of PI and industry in wormholespace, or how citadels will affect small groups in a c3 who only pve. Or how changes to rorqual will affect a mining corp living in a c2. I wish to know if he has a desire and willingness to represent and understand all of wormholespace or just the niche he has experience from. Or if he will be like former FC csm's who think they know everything and are always right.

I have no issue with promoting his candidacy if he wish to represent the broad group of pilots in wspace. But if he doesnt have a desire to look beyond his limited experience then I am more unsure. These are important questions about his attitude that matters for a lot of people so I hope he takes the time to answer them.

The truth is I've only ever lived in c5 and c6 space. As far as C4 and below, months ago when I decided I wanted to run for CSM and I talked about it with a few WH'lers, they asked me the same exact questions "I wish to know if he has a desire and willingness to represent and understand all of wormholespace or just the niche he has experience from".

I've made a point to learn more about life in C4 in below since then. I read WH'ler blogs, I listen to podcast, I read over everything said in the diplo channels. Unfortunately there is not as much media coverage that I've found for the lower class holes in terms of wars. AAR style battle reports, fleet fighting videos ect to learn from. So if you have a site or youtube channel I'm missing I would love to educate myself more.

But from perception I've noticed over the past months C4's love thier dual statics (something I asked for in the wormhole eveo forums), Lower class residents still love thier Pos bashes with subcaps. They love the added nullsec data/relics. Quite a few corps joined the safety of an Alliance spread across multiple holes eventually ballooning to like 700-800 members. That alliance shattered because of cultural disagreements? As far as population, in my opinion there are more growing corps in C4 and below than in c5-c6. Probably do to not having roaming russian dread gangs evicting people every week.

I'm really curious if lower class residents are going to want to try c5-c6 space when they can live out of medium Citadels and have 3 hour per week vulnerability windows, something they can set so that its not in Russian time zones. I'm extremely excited to see the population of W-space in all classes increase with Citadels being available.

As far as the hermits that live in W-space that do not enjoy PvP and only enjoy mining and data/relic sites and exploration, if they have feedback that they want me to convey to CCP I encourage them to open a chat with me. Good ideas can come from anywhere, I'm not going to discount someone's feedback just because I spend my personal time in W-space a different way.

That's an actual serious question, not a dig in any way...


I can't speak for Noob but as an HK member I think we're all confident in our ability to adapt to changes, and most anything that brings more people to wspace for PvP would be welcomed by us.

Noobman is a good person who has helped explain the intricacies of W-Space stuff to relative newbies. He's a good choice.

Well, as far as I can tell evictions in c1-c4 aint that much different than in c5-c6, instead of dreads you use in example domis/ishtars, it takes hours to take down a pos and it's boring (like REALLY boring), however I think what we need is something between c1-c4 and c5-c6, you either have the full capital warfare or "none", I could name 2 corps who would like to try out capitals in wspace, but are too scared due to reputation of big groups like HK, LZHX, SSC, Hole Control and so on (too lazy to name them all, I am sorry), I know and agree on "wspace is dangerous and you need to be able to defend your wormhole", but there's a lot of loss-averse people who prefer to avoid beeing seeded and killed by a superior Capitalfleet, this has an impact on c5-c6 population growth though (and I doubt that my idea of allowing Caps to jump from low-class into high class would fix it, however it's at least an approach), even SM.RB was influenced by that (can't deny facts).
So what do you think you could do to fix/solve that issue?!

Also for C5-C6 content, why not add for C5s 1-2 frignullsecs as statics and for C6, as allready mentioned from others, shattered static?! I'd rather have Frigstatics for C5s into 00 than the usual 3b wormhole for balancingreasons, however it would have a huge impact on evictions with intresting consequences....

For Capital escalations, you said that you hope more traffic if Sites despawn after 24h and can't be farmed for 4 days (as it is right now), I doubt that people would then farm their static more frequently, I think that instead the amount of pve-deserts/"bearholes"/"krabholes" would increase.

Noobman you should poke Sanders Schmittlaub (CEO of NJED) if you'd like some insights from a smaller C2-Corp, NJED is living in a C2 -> C3/HS and does everything from industrial to staticfarming to pvp in lower classes and they're also a great example of why people prefer C2s over C5s (especially keeping solo activity in mind if you're "small").


What is your plan to drag some more loss-averse and risk-averse people into c5-c6?!

There really isn't anyone better suited to run for CSM. He spends a lot of time in game and is almost always available out of game. I talked to him before and after he decided to run. I expressed my concern over my impression of his experiences being exclusive mostly to high class wormholes and nullsec and of the greater good, despite its impact on HDKNX. He's got a bizarre knack for making you feel heard. It's also sometimes annoying how magnanimous he can be.

I don't think he's running for these reasons everyone fears. Contrary to their actions against C6 space (removing PvE corps or alliances riding on their legacy [you know who you were]), I genuinely think Noobman wants to look after the health and vitality of w-space from a more influential and official position where he can make the most change with a bigger voice and wider audience.

I'm very optimistic that Noobman, as CSM, will do what's best for w-space from C1 to C6, PvX.

There's literally no one running who'd be a better candidate.

Don't know him personally but I've only heard bad things about the group of pompous baboons that he is leading. They worship him like a god and rightfully so as they wouldn't be anywhere without him.

How could you ever expect someone like that to try to achieve anything that is not beneficial to his corp? Plus he plays way too much Eve to be a balanced person.
