Yup. Can't CSM if your meat bag starves to death. Can't think and focus if one of the meat bags very similar to your own is struggling, et cetera.

To a mining-oriented nullsec sov holder, the present system says "We don't care that you'd rather be mining. You need to drop that and rat." This isn't good. Let players choose *how* they use their space and reward them for using it, don't tell them they have to focus on 50% ratting 50% mining..[/i]
Ummm ... miners in Null clump together as deep as they can into pockets and pipes for safety.
There is no shortage of ratters.

The question that needs thinking about is, "How do I give miners an ability to stand and fight so they feel safe enough to spread out in Null?"

Fingers crossed for Sab.

Joffy Aulx-Gao for CSM. Fix links and OGB. Ban stabs from plexes. Fulfill karmic justice.

Despite having 2 gewns and 1 codegewn, the community have managed to protect itself from the truly worst candidates.

Speaking on behalf of all the people who have read you candidacy nonsense I wish to express the following thought: get rekt, son.

Being teh freightergankbear automatically puts you below missionbear and minerbear in carebear hierarchy.

If you're about to make "this will make eve un-eve" argument, odds are you are defending some utterly horrible mechanics against a good change.

I didn't expect to be elected but was always serious about the campaign. This was the result I expected from day 1, if not the result I hoped for.

If time permits I will recontest next year, and hopefully I will be under less RL stress than I have been the past eight months. If I don't contest, I will definitely have - and share - opinions on where EVE should go and opinions on who should make CSM.


Two final things that I hope the elected reps take on.

1) In a competitive game environment with the degree of market PVP of EVE, creating wealth for one subset of players reduces the competitiveness of everyone else.

This applies both to blatant cheating (e.g. T20 at the extreme, bot mining or bot ratting at a less extreme example) but also to game balance changes. To take a hypothetical extreme case, if C3 wormhole sites were buffed to the point that they made you 800 million ISK per pilot per hour, this would have a devastating impact on the rest of the game.

Highsec incursions aren't at that extreme, but they need correction. Null ratting and highsec L4s need looking at too.



2) Be aware that anything posed as a quality of life change always hides a balance change behind it. The changes in Phoebe that allowed invention jobs to be multi-queued were pitched as a quality of life change, yet I would argue they were the biggest balance change in tech 2 production all year.

Assess every proposed change - even the most mundane - for its impact on game balance. Be honest as to what you think that impact will be - then make an informed decision.

Sometimes that will be "Yes, this is good for both QoL and game balance".
Sometimes, "This is good for QoL but so bad for game balance that it should be stopped"
Sometimes "This is good for QoL, bad for game balance, but the good outweighs the bad."
Seldom will it be "This is good for QoL but has no game balance impacts that I can forsee". If you think it is the latter, double and triple check, and ask "Does this affect game balance, but in a way that improves my position in game so I am ignoring it?".

CODE has forgotten about us miners to be a goon pet for like half a year now.

1) bawwwww my easymode PvF (player vs freighter) gameplay generates no ISK, please nerf ISK generation so all the free stuff we get with my easymode PvF (player vs freighter) gameplay is worth more.

2) If the main barrier in said activity was based on amount of clicks you have to make and alarm clocks you have to set, when it gets fixed with a QoL change and it revolutionizes it, then either the change is a great boon, or the design was bad in the first place. I wonder if people like you would've argued against 24 hours skill queue thingy back when it was introduced, because it "makes being online less rewarding and thus bad for balance". Screw balance. Your so-called stance was for conflict, and balance is the opposite of that, so why so much bother about balance?

You are a hypocrite in everything except being almost open-stanced "nerf everyone but me candidate" among your gewn masters. You put out the word "conflict" and your final word is crying for balance. You put out the word "role-play" and the only role-play you do is master-slave relationship with gewns. I am not satisfied with CSM election results, but at the same time, extremely proud to be a part of the community which culls candidates like you and Tora.

No point responding to a troll. But hey, I'll be indulgent.

I actually thought you were a Mike Azariah supporter (without his skills in smooth talking and diplomacy) until I saw you posted largely the opposite viewpoint in his thread but with the same degree of hostility.

Balance is the opposite of conflict? I've heard it all now. And you should ask people that actually build things what they think of the Phoebe changes. Steve Ronuken believes there's issues with them in hindsight, it's not just me.

That didn't make sense tipsy and I know it won't make sense sober.

Not intending to get drunk tonight, so a reply might be a while off.

I am not a Goon and I make no secret that I often build things to sell to their rivals in wars. I'm neutral with respect to sov null conflicts. However, even I think that Goonswarm Federation deserves an apology for the accusation of being affiliated with Mike Azariah.

It is no secret that the code of CODE openly states being the pets of gewns.
You are in the CODE, you have the link to the code of CODE in your sig. What else?
Being a gewn hisec pet is not about null sov, of course, it's doing what master orders. CODE is trying hard at that, and that includes you.

Mike is not in "affiliation", he just has been considered harmless and allowed to not be culled for being spineless teethless nobody of a CSM.

I have removed a trollish/disrespectful post and those quoting it. Please be respectful if you want to participate on the forums.

Quote:
2. Be respectful toward others at all times.

The purpose of the EVE Online forums is to provide a platform for exchange of ideas, and a venue for the discussion of EVE Online. Occasionally there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions. Forum users are expected to be courteous when disagreeing with others.

5. Trolling is prohibited.

Trolling is a defined as a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting other players in an attempt to incite retaliation or an emotional response. Posts of this nature are disruptive, often abusive, and do not contribute to the sense of community that CCP promote.
