Most you of should have never heard of me. This is intentional as I prefer to remain behind the curtain. I am perhaps the most Xenophobic of all the Goonswarm Directorate and this has manifested itself in essentially a shadow broker persona. When it comes to EVE I have mostly done everything there is to do with a handful of exceptions. WHs are not for me for example. But hey, that is what minions are for right.

My focus is the meta, game mechanics, economics, and empire building. I am a soothsayer, cartel leader, mass manipulator, and the transmission of our war machine.

My platform can be summed up very simply as this:
Anything that promotes discreet mechanics that build upon each other to form a complex player ran empire, or even small businesses, I am going to promote. Anything that is siloed or has little relation to other systems I will lobby against.

I see EVE as a large organism that benefits from complex interactions. As far as I am concerned, the future of EVE is about territory, space meta, Doomsdays glittering across space, sandcastles burning off the gates of EC-.

Every story needs a villain.

I am pretty qualified for that.

Honestly, it won't really matter if anyone outside our organization votes for this guy or not. This thread is now a Forex appreciation thread.

This post was crafted by the wormhole expert of the Goonswarm Economic Warfare Cabal, the foremost authority on Eve: Online economics and gameplay.

you can lie and say your not, but it is common knowledge that you are a paid employee and shareholder in tmc. you should be blocked from running like sion.

i have nothing against goons. but if the rule applies to one it should apply to all.

Since there are probably dumb enough people out there who believe that.
Let just go on record shall we.

I am not a TMC shareholder.
I am not a TMC employee or contractor.
I have never signed a TMC NDA.

I am however an axis of Evil. He got that part right.

After listening to his interview on CSM Watch Aryth is by far one of the best IF not THE best candidate so far that I see running for CSM.

In my professional life I deal with the final say on hiring individuals on a regional basis and you learn to spot certain traits in an interview. There are a few things that stand out with Aryth that puts him miles ahead of any other candidate.

1. An understanding of what the job entails.
2. A realistic view of what the CSM is and has evolved into.
3. Knowledge about the game as a whole and the simple/complex devices that fit in the game.
4. Thought out and realistic goals of how to keep EVE alive and growing instead of stagnating.

Whatever your opinions of goons are, there is one fact that cannot be disputed. They have knowledgeable players and know how to get work done when it comes to the game we all love.

Put aside all of the political bias and vote with your head instead of your emotions. Vote Aryth

Obviously you and I must be listening to different interviews, Mental Incapacity, because we've reached entirely opposite conclusions.

Aryth is, I'm sure, a skilled and knowledgeable player. He certainly talked with a lot of self-assurance on the matter of the 'jewbal' and his previous exploits.

However, despite his personal relationships with Sion, The Mittani and Mynnna, he is deeply out of touch with the realities of the CSM. Multiple CSM members have come out over the last few weeks to talk about how the biggest trouble with CCP is getting them to even acknowledge you. In the interview, Aryth glossed over this fact by insisting that his communication attitudes of 'blunt truth' and 'no filter' will get his message through to the (supposed) right people.

Here's my question: No-one at CCP has to listen to you and no-one at CCP, barring the summit, has to be in the same room as you.

How are you going to get heard, Aryth?

What strikes me about your attitude is that you're running on all the same points Sion and The Mittani did. What exactly, apart from that fact that it's you doing it, makes you and your campaign any different from theirs?

That is the thing. I am not going in with the expectation to "get heard". I can just use the media to be heard if I want. You know, like Sion had to and then things changed.

Dear Mr. Aryth,

If you're elected to the prestigious position of CSM Person, will you use the position to advocate for a wall being built around Deklein to keep the pubbies out?

If I could characterise your opinion of the CSM, I'd say you believe it's a regulatory body. How can you act as such if no-one will speak with you? How will you provide value to CCP, if you're only a public voice of disagreement?

Are you going to be a bull-horn CSM then? Should I write about your planned boycott of the CSM XI summits now, or do you wish to keep us on ice until CCP does something you consider outrageous? /s

What's the point in voting for you if you can only communicate via tweet or article, and not provide the value the CSM is meant to? In fact, let's make this easier.

If CCP continues to suffer problems with the CSM, what exactly can you do to alleviate those problems personally?
