As an aside - how would you, personally prefer the handling of outpost destruction be handled with regards to the loss of assets?


It depends on how the destruction of the outpost is handled. If it leaves a wreck, then you simply leave all personal assets (not corp) intact and all station services inside the 'wrecked' station are disabled except undocking (no trading allowed either). Grab what you can stuff into the biggest ship you have, undock and good luck.

If the entire outpost goes kaboom, you could do a few things

1.) A fire-sale takes place that auto-magically gives you the current average market cost of each of your destroyed items.

2.) All of your **** gets auto-magically moved to the last empire location you undocked from.

3.) **** you, all your **** is as dead as fried chicken.

These are the three most common arguments I've heard, both at CCP and on the CSM. Perhaps surprisingly, I'm not in favor over any one over the others as, over the years, I've heard strong arguments for each. I'm pretty much cool with any of them, so long as we can blow the hell out of some goddamn outposts and it's done in a logical and well-balanced manner.

Seleene is one of the few guys to ever be able to say " Conquered a region with the use of his NYX and then mined the very same belts with the same NYX".


You are confusing me with Loxy and his Wyvern, but I'll take full credit for having a salvager in my Nyx's high slot before anyone else.

I voted for you last term and certain to vote for you again; simply because you understand the game as both a designer and a player.

I'll ask the obvious PvE questions:

1) Missions; re-vamp required?
More missions?
Better missions?
Closer to a PvP type experiance?
Removal of '2 strikes'? (ie, 2 declines = no more missions from agent)
Removal / improvement of faction missions?
2) Small group PvE content that isn't incursions?
3) Your thoughts on improving the PvE experiance?
4) How important is the PvE aspect of the game for you and how likely are you to encourage iteration in the PvE elements of the game?

Thanks - good luck!



1.) I will freely admit to being one of the worst people to ask about ~missions~ as I've never really done that many of them. It's one of my weak areas. That being said, I did play through the 'epic arc' stuff and found it to be pretty interesting. I've never been able to do repetitive, non PVP, activities in any game. The only way it works for me is if there is a solid story element behind it to keep my interest.

2.) Yes, I would love to fight a Jovian invasion as well. Or Sleepers taking a peek into low-sec. Hell, I think it would even be cool if you were sent off on some big, week-long quest to that takes all over so you could find the ancient artifacts that allow you to build a custom purple smartbomb / Manticore / T3 Railgun. ARCHEOLOGY / Indiana Jones ****.

3.) I have to feel like I'm actually accomplishing something. It needs to be interesting and no the same old **** that someone can post a guide for and I can do the exact same way every time. If it can get someone like ME to give it a shot and actually enjoy it a bit, then that means it's good. Lol

4.) I've asked on more than one occasion why PVE couldn't be more interactive and immersive. I love single player games like Fallout and the old D&D games like Baldur's Gate. When I worked at CCP and heard the first whispers about DUST, I was pretty fired up about it because I initially thought it was going to be something similar to Fallout. If I knew that I could do something like I described above in #2 and #3? I would be much more inclined to push for more resources being used for it.

Seleene, i been reading alot, and in my perspective, you seem the most qualified and most active CSM member in CSM6.

Before i decide on who to place my humble vote, i would like to fire couple questions:

1) What is your view on Jump clones? Currently there's a 24hrs delay between using a JC, what's your stance on implementing a skill to lower the time?

2) Mining: I think that mining needs some rework, what's your proposal regarding this ?

3) LowSec: How can lowsec become more appealing and attractive?

4) Moongoo: Altho i have no contact with moongoo, i do invention, and i feel closely the fluctuations that the 0.0 power blocks make on market when there's wars over the tec moons. What is your ideas on how to fix the extreme in balance that is currently ingame?


1.) I'm fine with it but I think it would be maxed by pretty much everyone ASAP, thus making it almost meaningless. I don't really have an issue with the 24 hours limit. It's a simple rule / limitation and I'm not really aware of a big push to have it changed. Have I missed a riot about this somewhere? Smile

2.) Did you seem the post I made here? If you have more questions beyond that, let me know. :)

3.) The best place to see my current thoughts on low-sec is here where I did a bit of Q&A on it. You can also check out some of the other candidate's answers as well.

4.) Pasting in something I said earlier: Tech and all moon goo needs to be nerfed and re-done completely. There should be finite resources available of these materials as well (see my thoughts on mining a few posts back). I'd like to see different regions of space have unique things about them that make them valuable. Some regions should still be 'worth more' than others to help drive conflict, but the current imbalance right now is just stupid.

You know what Sel, I wouldn´t vote for you even if you were the only guy running.
Someone who shifts his loyalties as fast and as drastically as you cannot be trusted to stay the course in any matter.

I hope I didn't miss these elsewhere in the thread, but I have three questions for you:

1) How do you feel about time dilation and the potential impact it has on CCP in regards to demotivating them in upgrading server hardware?

2) PLEX/GTC prices are too damn high. How will you leverage your influence on the CSM to bring down the price of game time paid with isk?

3) How should CCP reward veterans for their longevity in playing this game instead of punishing them via "end-game" nerfs?

Also, just wanted to say I appreciate all the hard work you did on CSM 6. It didn't go unnoticed. As I evaluate these early candidates, you are my favorite. Keep up the good work!

Either a candidate with experience and ideas that can make difficult decisions in the interests of others (and take the associated criticism)?

Or vote for a bloc vote candidate with no ideas at all.

Let's keep this thread about ideas to improve the game, regardless of alliance or affiliation.Cool

You're weak on the issues and have very little to say about anything. I have no doubt that you have down syndrome, and that you are by far the most ******** person to ever run for CSM.



On topic, Sel has shown time and again with his ingame actions that he will serve his interests alone and nothing else.
Promises or past loyalties mean nothing as he will turn 180° on any matter with out hesitation if it suits him.
That and he is partly responsible for Dominion sov mechanics even though he will try to blame Zulu or whoever was there for it.

Considering how the other Russian bloc candidate is replying in his thread, I'd say not replying at all might be a better strategy.

edit: Now that there's more than two, I should probably clarify that I was referring to Fon Revedhort and not UAxDeath who by all accounts is a pretty good guy.

Then point out what is so **** about my post man, was it calling Sel a self serving turncoat for his ingame actions or me saying Dominion sov mechanics are crap and that Sel is partly responsible for it.
