I d-scanned a Rifter in a belt in lowsec, and warped to that belt at range. I aligned for the planet, and after allowing time for the pilot to see where I was going, I warped there. The other Rifter followed and we fought.

Given the circumstances, we both wanted to fight.

One of us took a GCC and lost security status. Eventually that pilot will have to start shooting little red crosses or suffer the consequences of 'going pirate'. On this occasion, it was me. Perhaps tomorrow it will be him.

Why are we punished for seeking combat?

Is this working as intended or something you feel needs fixing?

Oh man... I SUPER HATE THIS. It's a total LIFE IN JAIL thing. Evil

So, like, I am never going to rat to recover sec status. I cannot stand it. A long long long time ago, sec status recovered back up to 0.0 at a rate of +.1 a day I believe. Then that was removed and the only option since has been killing NPC's to prove to CONCORD that you are a reformed murderer.

Why has this not changed? Why can't I bribe someone? What about if I kill another -10.0 dude that I get a sec status boost?

I guess I'm still emo because Sel's sec status got wrecked back when I was being a bad pirate. I was hunting down an EVE Marshall Dominix in a belt in Sosala. He launched drones at me and my buddy in our torp launching Blackbirds (yes, I'm going back in time a bit!). The torps hit the drones (this was back when people could launch 10-15 drones) and detonated and the splash damage caused all the other drones to explode. The amazigly accurate sec status penality system (or whatever it's called) then treated every drone I'd popped as an entire ship kill. Then I killed and podded the guy for having the gall to defend himself.

To sum up:

EVE Marshalls corp
Blackbirds with Torps
Torp splash damage
Drones being damaged / hit by missiles
Wrecking sec status due to bad code

...... RAGE!

Anyway, in all the years since, I've not been able to force myself to fix my sec status by shooting NPCs. I want to be a better person, but there has to be a better solution to this.

I've brought this up on the CSM forums previously and it had a fair bit of discussion. It is defiantly something I intend to keep pushing on.

Also posting support for Seleene.

Love him, or hate him -- you have to admit the man has been there, done that and knows not only the game mechanics, but also can appriciate the difficulties in balancing corporate pressures and tight game release schedules.

I think that gives him a unique position to speak as a peer, not only a customer, when it comes to important game wide issues. Having been involved in designing much loved game features such as Wormholes -- I think the man speaks the truth when it comes to the need for iterations.

While Elise is my man for my Combat votes -- my other account will vote for Seleene for the wider game issues.

Before I pledge my support what do you think of The $99.00 thing CCP wants 3rd party developers to pay? What have you done to express your views on this subject to CCP? Also goodluck ill be watching your , Hanz and Elise's campaign with great interest to decide who I should pledge my vote too.

I for one will be pledging all my votes to Sel just as I did for CSM 6. Sel I go back to the old days of MC and brought CONIN into the MC. He even drove up to visit and bring me my BDCI pin.Shocked We got to talk about Eve and other RL stuff too. I say this to say that he has more passion about this game than anyone that works for CCP! If your on the fence about who to put your vote torwards, I would not hesitate to put a vote torwards Sel!

We are all passionate about certain issues within this imaginary space ship game, but Sel takes on all the issues, I have been waiting on someone that would actually speak there mind and he doesn't have to hold back when he is a member CSM!

I recommend everyone go read his blog

As far the guy who says Sel doesn't communicate...... really...... this guy over communicates sometimes......Pirate

When this first came up last year, it was right in the middle of CCP's completely befuddled efforts to talk to the community about much of anything. I actually wrote about this specific issue in my blog when it happened in an attempt to make sense of the thought processes behind it:

The $99 feedback loop

I can't really paste much of what I said on the internal CSM forums or in the joint Skype chat but there was a lot of emo going on. It didn't help that this was right in the middle of all the other drama. As a result of this and all the player rage, if you recall, CCP Zulu appeared on the EVE Online Alliance Tournament and another blog came out on the subject where he talked about the fee not being $99 but a 'token payment'. I didn't waste any time in making my thoughts known what this token payment should be:

LINKAGE to old forums

I think it's safe to say that any attempt by CCP to repeat this nonsense will be met by me with all the subtlety of a small nuke. Smile

Do you support the nerfing of titans to a level were they cant touch subcaps?


I don't think it should be ~impossible~, but I think it could be adjusted to where it's not very effective. I think most people would agree that there's no silver bullet for titans / supercarriers. The problem is bigger than 'titan guns'.

That being said, I don't think that a single titan ATM is overpowered because a lone titan is pretty much dog food against a support fleet. Over and over, the issue doesn't seem to be one of A TITAN doing anything bad; it's the scale of the problem when you have multiples of the same ship class, be they Titans or Battleships or whatever, all shooting at the same target - one of them is going to get a glancing blow of some kind and BLAP, that's it.

This stuff goes back to when 50 battleships were blapping frigates too. Once you get XX number of big ships in a blob, ONE of them is going to score. That is where the main problem lies, IMO, and where we should be looking to START to curb things, quickly and smartly.


First of all I'd like to say I voted for you last time and you'll get my vote this time, you seem to be a stand up guy who says what he believes and you have a welfare of the playerbase uppermost in your mind. You got a +1 from me!

However I believe titans are a problem as they are in groups AND on their own.

Very few people who've experienced titans as they are at the moment would disagree they're overpowered as far as their guns go. You're never going to be able to stop people blobbing with ships as it's just something that is part of human nature. PL are a good example of this, a titan pilot within PL knows he's a good chance of using his ship on a regular basis and getting some kills with a very low chance of losing it. The only way to fix it is to make it so titans NEED a backup fleet in order to function at their most effective.

The problem of titans guns being overpowered was excellently demonstrated to me about a week ago I was up in the drone regions and we got a PL Erebus tackled. What did he do? Popped our interdictors with his blasters.

Sorry, no, that should not be happening. Titans should need a subcap fleet to help then fight off what they can't, and right now they don't need that as they can pretty much fight off anything on their own, from the lowly interdcitor to doomsdaying a carrier.

I personally would make it so their guns (even if loaded with tracking computers) are marginally effective against battleships and totally useless at killing anything smaller.



Anyway good luck in the election, never thought I'd vote for a PL guy in anything! ;) *grits teeth*

If CSM was a stunt, that would have been one of the first things to go during the cost cutting exercise last year. CCP as a company are damned lucky they had the sense to create the CSM well BEFORE things got so bad the bears were rioting in Jita...trying to do that after the fact would be seen as gasping for air an have no credibility whatsoever.

Yet, even with this "stunt" I see you still pay to play/play to pay, etc...maybe you should un-sub in protest?

There definitely needs to be some system to allow consensual pvp on a scale smaller than 'war decs'

Hey Seleene,

could you comment on THIS post in the Darius III campaign thread?
Vile Rat and Two Step claim that Darius did pretty much nothing while he was in the CSM. D3 then argues that they just say that because they are in love with Mittens.

Since there are no official records of what each member of the CSM did during their time in office, it would be helpful to hear the opinions of some of the other CSM members.

Vile isn't even running and, Goon or not, is one if the most stand up guys I've ever dealt with in or out of game. Two Step's work on the CSM was exemplary. Take them at thier word and add mine to theirs.

I was going to post to your reddit thread, but the topic is fairly slow moving and it didn't seem like the ideal place to continue the discussion.

In your thread you got asked about titans/supercaps and not only your part in the adjustments that made them into the basis for the 'supercaps online' situation nullsec is in, but you really didn't answer the questions posed. You keep pointing at your blog, where you generally give the same non-answers. What I wanted to ask about specifically was mentioned in another reddit thread by FMERCURY, here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Eve/comments/pktfz/state_of_eve_discussion_titans_as_the_new_fleet/

I'll quote it for reference:

Quote:
Nothing new under the sun. In 2005 it was SUAS asking "'ow many battleships we got?", now it's shadoo or elise going "titans t up in SC legion"
It comes down to: should big engagements be decided by numbers, money, or strategy?
I think two of those are very boring and dumb, and one makes the game worth playing.
Introducing supercaps, and especially titans, was a fundamentally bad idea that forever soured the game. There is nothing you can do short of making them utterly useless that maintains the balance of the game, which pre-supercaps was:
Dreads kill structures and carriers, but are killed by subcaps
Carriers kill subcaps, but are killed by dreads and useless against structures
Subcaps kill dreads, but fairly useless against structures or carriers.
Titans kill all three with "pleasing alacrity". From a min/max perspective, there is no reason to be in any other ship than a titan. This is quite clearly ******* ********.

Remove supercaps from the game, focus on making a fun and dynamic subcap/cap and subcap/subcap interactions. Make it so that the groups who employ the best strategies are able to beat those who rely on brute force. Viola, the metagame of fleet pvp is fun once again.


The point I wanted to raise has been bolded. One guy's opinion is just that, but the underlined portion goes directly against your assertation that 'One titan is fine. Fifty are the problem."

How do you respond to this?
