In late 2006, I was hired as a Game Designer at CCP, a job I held until February of 2010 when I resigned to return to work in the Defense industry. I am now a small business owner in the United States with real estate interests in Germany.

Can't vote for a grown man who plays a female in an online space game sorry :(



Child, only people confident of their masculinity can gift the world with avatars as beautiful as these.

So I'm curious as to who you will vote for then. Do you think that you would vote for say .... someone who cant think of a cool sounding original name and decides to be a US president instead for example ?

Trolling aside, your argument makes no sense. You aren't a dead president. We're all forum alts. Eve is a game and the avatars we wear are irrelevant. What's important to us as real people who play a game, is that the game works, doesn't have moronic design flaws and bugs that don't get fixed for years, and is fun for all of us.

Either vote for someone who can get that point of view across or STFU man.

i don't know, at least in the matrix online when i created a female character I got to watch her bum wiggle across the screen for days on end. When you are perpetually trapped in a capsule whats the motivation to do it, hmmm?

I like your thoughts on industry. I've always considered industry and trade among the most fascinating aspects of EVE, in principle, yet extremely frustrating to get involved in. All areas of industry, from PI to mining to invention and manufacture, seem to have been designed to make the experience as dull, sterile and miserable as possible.

Take PI, for example. It's fairly easy for newbies to get into, so it's a shame the entire PI system is in such a sorry state that it'll leave most new players disappointed. PI sucks, both content-wise and from a bells-and-whistles standpoint. It has no depth to speak of, it has an irritating UI, and the circles-and-lines graphics aren't very attractive either. It's bizarre to think that any professional game designer could have come up with a system so completely devoid of any kind of fun.

PI could easily be an entertaining little minigame with complexity (note to CCP: "complexity" is not the same as "more hoops to jump") and meaningful choices, something some players might enjoy tinkering with for hours, something that looks and feels like managing a planetary colony. In other words, something akin to what was advertised before PI was released. Yet right now the only redeeming quality of PI is that you can get a decent profit out of it without spending too much time on it. Fixing issues like these, making the industry and economy aspects of the sandbox more accessible and fun, would benefit the game, and I hope you keep pushing for iteration in this area once you've been re-elected.

Awesome blog on industry this week.

I would really advocate anything that gave miners a home in 0.0 that isn't necessarily a rental agreement.

I’ve heard many space friends and colleagues point to Apocrypha as an example of a great expansion. Right now, with the amount of resources that have been refocused on EVE, there is the potential for an 'Apocrypha' nearly every three months.


Then, please, a new Apocrypha first within the next three months. After that, if it must be, iterate over old content. EVE needs an injection of fresh blood. Personally I am tired of "little things" and iterations.

And putting the best candidate back to first page.

He still looks at improving the game as a total, not just certain parts of the sandbox.

Hey seleene! good luck with the voting btw! ur rock solid CSM member and CSMs without you would be a travesty indeed!

was wondering bout getting your ear on a proposal ive been deep in though about for a long while and recently posted it on F&I section, as you've worked on Sov mechanics b4 management pulled the rug from underneath ur team, would be very interested in what you think about it, and maybe (even if the entire proposal is a tad imbalanced for whatever reason) it'd give you some unusual and interesting new ideas of approaching Sov!

anyways heres the link

thanks for your time! and good luck! my votes for you btw!

I guess I'll vote for Seleene again - the only candidate who has consistently stood for the one thing EVE desperately needs: iteration.
