My intent to run for CSM X

First, I'm a little bit drunk.

Second, I think you were "in office" while I was just starting my eve career and I just want to know if it is true that you started a war over comments made at Fan Fest. If so, do you think it was a good idea and do you regret doing. I am just asking because I think honesty and openness is a big part of being a successful CSM. I don't care one way or the other because I just want to hear it from the horse's mouth to turn a phrase.

Third, I am a solo "carebear" player that likes to mine roids and explore highsec and lowsec. Do you think that making mining anoms non-scannable has hurt carebear mining?

Furthermore, would you agree that switching WH anoms and mining anoms would help. For example, making WH anoms show up like mining anoms do now and changing mining anoms to a thing that has to be scanned down. I feel, yes I used the word feel, that right now mining anoms enables gankers and un-enables people whom might want to explore WH? Changing WH anoms to an open warp to mechanic could give WH more action, do you believe that changing them would help or hurt the game?

Lastly, I think that the jump fatigue is a good thing and even though I have never fought in a large battle or been a part of a fleet that jumped across the galaxy to fight in a "news worthy" fight that JF is good for the whole of the game. Again, I just want to hear a response from a person whom has done these things and is running to represent me. There is no wrong answer.

Y'know what the great thing about re-running for CSM is?


You can make claims about what you did or did not do on your term. Since it's all under NDA anyway, you don't have to prove it... and no one else can present evidence to the contrary~

Cool
Unless someone else also on the CSM calls you out. I'd take that at as evidence.

Sorry for my lack of answering, I had monday, tuesday as my weekend with the wife!

The war I wanted never started due to my own self making comments at fanfest that in itself helped to bring down the coalition I was at that time at the helm of.

Do I regret it, nope not at all. Some of the things I said at fanfest I am disappointed in myself for saying some of the things I did. I generally do not like to talk eve when I meet people in real life. And even though my wife told me on numerous occasions to shut my mouth I did not. I have never hid anything regarding that time just that their is 2 sides to every story and my side I should have been more vocal or in some cases less vocal.

Regarding your last point, in some ways fatigue has helped the game a lot but in other ways it has really hindered it. I never agreed with the mass power projection of the old days but I find myself leading an alliance of newer, older and mid level players and with this I find that people are ending up knee deep in fatigue that they should not have simply because the system that could have been quite easily adapted to be a whole lot simpler. The unfortunate thing is that ccp is never known for doing things the simpler way they always over extend then nerf back towards what they want. I had hoped that if they made some jump changes it would not end up in some pilots with 30 days without being able to jump and the only way to combat that being log out for 30 days or fly the whole time in a frig.

In summary as I may have gotten a bit off topic with your last question I do believe the idea behind the concept of fatigue was good but the implementation like we see with ccp every time was poor and not completely thought out.

Well honestly Sort, the major reason with fatigue, particularly your coalition is that you're trying to fight on two fronts to defend a fairly vast empire. So yes you have members that get 30 day jump fatigue but what do you expect when you fight both in Delve/Fountain and the south?

See that is not true. Most of my guys who have 30 days fatigue come from basic travel around Delve, we rarely take titans or jump bridges far out of delve. We probe wormholes which we have in abundance and then use them. It would be nice to have a fatigue bonus inside of your own sov to help with defence, outside of that I do believe it should be effected for sure.

But please tell me more about how much alliance has fatigue from 2 fronts. :)

So just using titan bridges and jump bridges within Delve? If so...

Have you suggested to people that they use gates for daily travel?

Indeed I have, unfortunatly people are harder to teach and the fatigue system is not the easiest to understand.

Well with all due respect to you as a major alliance leader holding 0.0 sov, but I feel as the issue isn't the jump fatigue but rather people's gameplay habits. Jump fatigue is what is keeping 0.0 much more divided and conflict driven. Why would you want to limit that? What is "too harsh" in your mind?

In my mind over a days fatigue is too much. Most fights aside from maybe 1-2 in the past 2 years are over in under 24 hours stacking the most fatigue at 1 day is more than enough, why stop people from wanting to login due to not being able to join any fleet in your alliance for 30 days because you made a mistake and find it hard after that mistake not to wait over and up to a week or more.

That sort of fatigue limitation, to be quite blunt, is what stops the CFC for example from moving all their supers south of Fountain one day, and moving it all back up to Venal the next day. On the broad meta aspect of the game, this is exactly what is going to make nullsec a much more diverse multi-faction animal as opposed to the boring polarized version we had come to know for the past year +.

If we could have 6-8 CFCs or N3s or RUS coalitions out there, the game would be better, and thankfully we're heading toward that direction. Your position on the matter not only works 0.0 on a broad level, but against your very own coalition very directly.

What are your thoughts on account shared supers. Should it be allowed, and if a account shared super or titan is lost by the person borrowing it( like say for a drive by doomsday with out a out cyno) should ccp do anything about it, or was it just a risk of account charing and nothing more.

I did quite a bit of blogging about CSM 8's elections, tenure and actions. At the end of the year I posted my personal perception of CSM 8 Grades I would have given. While I can't claim to be an insider or know what happened in individual sessions, I did do a lot of analysis of what did become public.

TLDR: I gave Sort a C-. The only reason it wasn't lower is because he did in fact participate in summits.

Only Kesper North got a lower grade (F) for not appearing at all.

In my book, #13 of 14 does not merit another shot.
