Greene Lee for CSM7

CSM delegate’s job is to forcefully, clearly and reasonably articulate aspects of the game requiring CCP’s attention. I believe that CSM is here both to protect the rights of all capsuleers and to help CCP shape the game into a successful business. We must recognize that CCP runs a business and we must appreciate their right to make changes necessary to make Eve a successful business venture. I believe it is this spirit of cooperation and mutual benefit that both CSM and CCP must embrace and execute on. Recent changes in Eve were great from the player-base perspective but have been hardly the bonanza of new subscribers. These long-awaiting fixes and obvious improvements that were sometimes years overdue are the product of years of neglect. The turnaround will not be easy, nor obvious and we as CSM must be there to protect the existing player base interests. With the new focus on Eve this CSM like no other before it has the opportunity to reshape the game into both a successful business venture and an enjoyable experience for all capsuleers.
Considering the views that CCP takes in regards to the advancement of the game, I plan to concentrate my campaign on three subjects:
1. New content, more content, better content for all –Eve is an extraordinarily old game and the dissonance between new players and old has grown out of control. This is a key element for growth that we must as CSM, understand and shape.
2. Global, massive mechanics changes: 0.0 sov, moon rebalancing, super-cap rebalancing, fleet sizes and lag concerns.
3. Customer Support – Eve needs vastly improved customer support department. Better support in all time zones and in more languages. As CSM we must show CCP why and how this is critical to their own success.

What do you feel should be done to turret titans to bring them into balance?

Mittens,

I actually told Shadoo what to do a few weeks back. He did not even protest too much :).

Titans tracking must stay as is - as it is not an issue at all. What makes them
invulnerable is the ability to receive nearly infinite armor repping WHILE owning
face with guns. 50 super-carrier logistics ships make that possible.

Our suggestion would be to remove ability of ALL super capital ships to receive
remote armor repairs. They are already invulnerable to all forms of remote attack.

This tact makes too much sense both in terms of mechanics and in terms of RP.

This would make deploying high number of titans a delicate business as one
can exchange 500 maels for a titan kill and it would bring the world into balance
without jeopardizing titan pilot's ability to have fun.

titan's guns fire randomly, pilot has no control who the ship targets

Expanding the 'immunity to remote assistance' that was bought in recently to include reps would be pretty entertaining

That's what we are thinking too :).

It is an obvious solution that serves the interests of both parties the "haves" and the "have nots".

I'd hate to see titan nerfed to uselessness as it kills the goal of owning one for many people but the remote assistance should balance that out nicely as more of them will either collect dust or die when deployed.

This way someone with 50 titans would have to weigh their deployment vs the cost of having 1 killed for the objective.
No more "turkey shoots with no consequences".

Allow Titans to permanently anchor themselves as outposts a la Mike Mulligan And His Steam Shovel. I don't really know if it's a good idea, I just liked that book a lot when I was a kid.

That's actually a pretty interesting suggestion, I should consider it.

Your dude can actually speak english fluently, right? I expected Greene to reply, not you. (if he can't, you should run as the awagon guy)

I agree and would go further
1. Better content is a key so many things left unfinished - low sec needs a complete overhaul moons need to be replaced by decent content that requires skilled player interaction to gain whilst having risk involved. Unused modules and ships need to be improved or changed. No feature left behind.

2. Sov in 0.0 and low sec needs to be overhauled and made content driven requiring players to maintain the empire they build be it a pirate cartel or a 0.0 empire which can be profited in, or pillaged and taken away at the same time. Supers need to lose EW 100% immunity and just gain very high warp, electronic strength etc. Titans need to siege to gain full damage bonus meaning tracking is nerfed as is lock speed and remote repping during the seige cycle. Siege is a brilliant balancing and fight making mechanic which is now mostly nerfed even with recent changes.

3. Customer support, EVE needs to be more transparent and support needs to be more reactive. Botting needs to be prevented by all means possible. The events team needs to be expanded upon and used more to create epic storylines in game people can interact with on a regular basis, so they can 'live the EVE videos' they bought into when they signed up.

We were standing together with some GS members. I was the one who asked you who you are to which you nonchalantly turned over your pass. Lol Was on second level, in front of main presentation room.
