Hello Friends,

My name is Bobmon, You might know me from being the CEO of I started playing Eve Online actively in 2010. I got into the game through a couple of friends at the time who ran their own (dutch) corp. This corp was a member of a highsec alliance which at the time had an active wardec going on. I had no chance fighting, and so I got into spying and I'm proud to say that my first official task in EVE was to spy upon my enemies!!

Between these beginning days and now I did many things such as:
- WH's (normal player mode; c3/c4)
- 0.0 (C0NVICTED member; Delve War - Morsus Mihi Invades)
- BLACK-MARK (FC position around the time CFC took over White Noice Space)
- Red. Overlord (FC for my Corp - Fighting alliance such as 250+ Tribal band with 30 dudes and one pos)
- Unclaimed. (Second In Command / Head Diplomat - Focus was to work with HBC)
- Northern Coalition. (Line member that died fishing (RIP NYX)
- Homemade Napalm (Project but failed)
- EN24 Chief Editor and CEO
- Help organise Evesterdam
- Currently I'm a member of Habitual Euthanasia, Pandemic Legion.

I think the most important job of being a CSM member is to be a bridge between CCP and players as most as possible. Players are the one playing, and their issues are the ones that need to be solved. If I would have to list them it would probably come down to

- Nullsec / lowsec
- Fix Cyno ''turn pos shield on'' exploitAttentionAttentionAttentionAttentionAttention
- Alliance Warfare and how changes affect this
- Space Usages / coverage
- Ships and their use
- Make sure changes happen to is needed and not the ''let's add a shiny ship'' tactic
- Make sure Creators (dev) understands players problems
- Effect changes on small alliances
- Fleet fights (Think about 50 high sp chars vs. 250 newbies)
- Communication between player and dev
- Increase support for Events

Of course these are just some of my personal topics that I want to address but I am open to whatever comes at me to discuss.

Why do you wanna become a CSM member
Over this past year, I have had a ton of eve-related discussions with Devs, CSM members and players, and it made me realise that we as a community have a lot of great Ideas. I would love to focus these great ideas into actual small pieces for devs to take into account when working on projects. I have also worked together with a lot of different types of players making me able to understand differences in how groups respond to ''ideas'', Also I want to make sure that the player doesnt get forgotten in the whole development of EVE. change is foccused from top to button but through this mentality you forgot who actually play this game, The players. I want to make sure I represent those, The players and nobody else!

THE BELLOW CONCEPTS ARE JUST IDEA's Based on either CCP Idea's or Player feedback!

  • #1 ''Hardcore Player Mode''
  • CCP Rise talked about this a few weeks back and it got me interested. I did some thinking, and I liked the idea to have a ''special alt'' who is badass at doing pvp related stuff.

    Hardcore player mode in my opinion should be based on the pirate faction lines, This would work because it would back up the fact that your char can always be shot, even in highsec by all other players. This char is special because once you ''unlock'' it you get a certain amount of SP that you can use on ALMOST ALL PVP RELATED SKILLS.. With ''almost all'' I mean that I want to exclude every skill that doesn't require you to actually pvp in your ship such as:
    - no cloak and cloak related ships (bombers, probers)
    - no station skills
    - no poss related skills (only anchor maybe)

    These pirate faction chars would only have the capability to fly their own pirate race ships (maybe all pirate ships, haven't decided yet) because they created these themselves to fight off their enemies. The effect of them self designing their ships might result in a small extra bonus but again, not sure on this yet.

    Pirate Chars won't have access to WH space because their focus is to fight their true enemy, The big four factions.

    Fleet wise I want these chars to basically be solo ''roaming'' ácross new Eden but I do think that they should be able to group up with other pirates of their faction but this might result in them getting some drawbacks at forming fleets or whatever. Pirate Chars should basically force a player to be on top of their game or they get killed

    Pirates can maybe even make isk through killing people that do militia related stuff, and I would love them to be these little pricks who cause a lot of chaos everywhere their go.

    Let me know what you guys think!

    Arrow#2 Fix Cyno ''turn pos shield on'' Exploit
    This is a exploit so lets thread it as one. Fix would be easy by simply adding cyno rules to anchored and onlining posses
    (cyno rules can be found here

    Arrow#3 Lowsec
    Make lowsec better for new alliances and Players to get into pvp so that they have a place to grow (more on this in this you can find here)

    Arrow#4 Jump Fatigue
    Jump fatigue had increadable effects but it ruins a lot of fun for the individual pilot. I hate this, I find it very strange that me as a individual pilot im forced to basicly not use a certain ship because it will stop me later on in joining up fleets. I think the future would be much better if we created a so called: Jump Button. This would work as followed:

    Right click modle -> Select system (current menu) -> click system, jump -> Wait certain time (10mins) and continue.

    Arrow#5 Capitals
    Capitals are really not as OP as some groups say they are. their problem is just that they are good at a little bit of everything. I think we should look into the roles of each capital and make it more focused. in order to achieve this more focused role you could for instance split up the carriers into a DPS variant and a Logi variant.

    I think Jump fatigue has a lot of bad effects, and I would like to see it adjusted to a minimal scale. If I look back at the discussion then I think Elise Randolph sums it up the best and I 100% Agree with what says about it (link to the forum thread)

    Arrow#6 Space Usages / Coverage
    Space should be used and so I suggest making ''bad'' system better so that an alliance has to own less space. Also I believe that Jump bridges should stay as they were for inner region movements.

    Arrow#7 Make the CSM more public

    Arrow#8 Posses
    Get the whole pos problem smoothend out because that has been a problem for a long time

    Arrow#9 Dreads in highsec
    Allow dreads to enter highsec to increase pos fights (only allowed on large onces)

    Arrow#10 Ships and balance
    Some current ships are way out of balance! Bombers still dictate battlefields making them way to overpowerd. Their role is amazing just their damage output is way to high. Tech 3's are out of balance too. They are pretty good at whatever they want to do and therefor it hurts other ships, like the Heavy Assault ships. as last I think that we should look at missles. Missles are not used for combat at the moment, which I find very sad because you eliminate a ton of ships from being used.

    Arrow#11 Drugs in contracts

    Arrow#12 Logistics
    T2 Logi frigs for frigate fleets
    T2 Logi BS for BS
    and split up the carrier to be a logi carrier and a dps carrier. This way, Logistics become more of a specialised job, just like flying dps ships is.

    Arrow#13 SBU's
    Make them single use, so once you drop them, they are dropped. This would remove the defensive SBU tactic cause you would basically make your own system vulnerable. This would stimulate multiple things such as: more objective based fights, sbu market will go up, PI market will go up.

    This means more fights, more isk for pilots!

    Responses to some good questions:
    -Policies and my plans for Lowsec
    -New players, My main concern
    -Individuals are being hurt in having fun
    -The Join in a frigate option

    I work for EN24 and am not especially loyal to any organization so take this as you will. I noticed Bobmon has a lot of energy when it comes to EVE. He's LOVES this game of ours. I think he is secretly in love with CCP Guard but I'm not sure. Blink

    Don't fire me but -
    one day we noticed TheMittani site was not updating news often enough and someone said it was because Mittani had fired a lot of staff for, i don't know, for not towing the line or something embarrassing like that (not saying it is true, I don't know). Some of the guys suggested we write about that and on EN24 because it is a real story. BOBmon refused. It was a non-starter to him. That showed a lot of character and integrity.

    The work environment at EN24 is really good. there is no pressure to choose a side or tow a line. No hints dropped, no performance pressure at all. It's pretty cool. He pays well and on time.

    he obviously loves EVE
    lots of energy towards the community
    good relationships with CCP
    is a pretty cool boss

    Hell, anyone crazy enough to let me write for his site is clearly just the sort of lunatic we should have helping run this mad house. I have been impressed with Bob's sense of honor is managing EN24 and I believe that would carry over to the CSM.

    I have started a fund raising event to help out the cause.

    ... hey Bob, it's still free drinks at the inauguration party, right?
