Cagali not only knows newbies and how to teach them... he knows how to get OTHERS excited about newbies and how to teach them - as evidenced by players like myself who devote their playtime to teaching newbies as well.

The New Player Experience is, easily, the single area of Eve with the most potential for growth and improvement. In all my travels, I've never met a man more suited to this monumental task than Cagali. He taught me, he taught me to teach others, and I'm confident that on the CSM he'll be able to teach CCP a thing or two... thousand.

So cagali how are you going to differentiate from Matias as a guy with a lot of stuff other than eve going on who gets elected and then doesn't do anything on the csm? Because right now I can't justify voting for you.


Trying to tar others of an organisations because someone else from that organisation was not able to fulfill their obligations is kind of stupid. +1 Cag

+1 the fresh blood of the game is easily overwhelmed, BRAVE have done an excellent job of showing new players the ropes and encouraging them to help each other out. There are still a lot of things to consider about how new players are treated however.

Newbros need all the help they can get. Big +1 from me.

That being said, can you highlight specific topics pertaining to the NPE and actions you would like to take to address them? Are there any particular changes you are confident to implement with the empowerment of a CSM member?

+1 from me


When I joined GRRKA who belongs to NAGA and therefor to BNI I got thrown into the meatgrinder of F9E(?) with several hundreds of BNI newbros in Maulus´s and the most impressive part outside of all the PL supercaps was the morale of BNI fleets. Welped by the hundreds I felt like a lemming but the morale of these newbros were unbreakable. Several big fleets later it was still the same. I occasionally join the Dojo mumble channel and listen in just for personal enjoyment and while one might argue with fittings, doctrines or other stuff you can´t deny the amount of enthusiasm that is put into the Dojo and the impact it has on the newbros. I often heard that BNI is used a stepstone to get into null and from there into some other coorp and some people don´t like it but I think as long as the majority of the Dojo trainees take the BNI spirit with them everything is fine. We need a steady flow of new players into EvE and supporting this is worth my vote for sure.

A god amongst men. #1 on my voting list.

The only reason not to vote for him is that he will not be able to dedicate as much time helping the new bros who want to brave Null Sec.

Not bad bloke for a aussie, which is also a big plus Cool

Hi there,

Some questions because it's campaign now :
1- What would be your word in CSM X for WIS ?
2- For Project Legion as an important element for Eve Online ?
3- For Valkyrie so that it could be linked with Eve Online ?

You want to be the voice of newbies.
Which one ? English speaking only ? How would you represent other language community and how do you do this each day in Brave Collective ?

Sorry for this inquiry.
Your application is interesting. So, we want to know a little more about you before voting.

Thanks and best regards.

Gday Mate, Sorry it's taken me 2 weeks to reply to this.

As far as the NPE experience goes: There is a Massive problem with the way Newbies are dumped into the game and left to fend for themselves. The Tutorials are horrible, despite their apparent revamp a little while ago. They're clunky, far too wordy, and teach the new player to PVE.

CCP's stats show that if PVE is all you ever do in the game, you're going to leave very shortly. That needs to change - Players need to be engaging with the Community in Eve - which is the real drawcard anyway.

I'm confident that, should I get elected, there will be one guy sitting at that table saying: "How's that going to get more players to subscribe past their trial? Have you thought about how difficult that will be to explain to a new player through a tutorial window? How are you going to offset the pain that someone like me is going to suffer trying to get newbies to do that?"

I'm keen to get new players into this game, and keen to have them stick around. I'm confident that I will be able to assist in that occurring.

I hope you mean Walking In Stations by WIS, otherwise my reply here is going to look pretty dumb.

I am personally a fan of Walking around. It's a welcome change to Ship spinning as I sit around, reading mails and (hopefully) CSM stuff. I am disappointed that we don't have hats, and I'd like to see some fat characters around.

I've played Dust. I have a couple million Skillpoints on my Brave Bunnies toon, and I'm interested to see if Legion can improve on Dust's strengths while avoiding it's shortcomings. I have a hope that one day, I'll be able to storm onto a Supercarrier, kick the Capsule apart, and tear the pilot apart with my bare hands. Or use a land based battery to annihilate a fleet in orbit. Or use shaped charges to blow up those irritating PI colonies that are right in the middle of the juiciest resource band!

I'm excited about Valkyrie. I'd want to play it before I decide whether or not I'd like to have people with that level of control on the battlefield.

I'm a fan of More. More is great. More things to do, more ways to have fun. More ways to engage and interact. I'd love it if we could harness all those people playing Dust/Legion and the hordes that will likely try Valkyrie, and bring them into our magnificent community.

EDIT: Sorry , I missd half your question.

There's no language barrier. There's always someone who can translate for me, if my horrible French and worse Japanese isn't up to the task. We have some fantastic Language-Specific corps and alliances in Eve, and their Newbies are as lost as the English Speakers.

As far as the Brave Language experience goes? A little while ago I introduced a translation program for various things. I wanted to harness newbies of all stripes, regardless of their ability in English. I called it the Hon'Yaku Sha Program, and I had about a hundred volunteers for the gig. Some of them did some great work translating various mails and resources into their home languages, and for a little while we had a channel for Non-English-Speakers to jump into.

It was utterly unused.

Having said that, we have people who are able to translate and interpret for us, and we can pretty well guarantee that we'll have someone able to speak with you or your newbies!

THanks again,

Thanks, Cagali, for this answer.

We like your enthusiasm and open-mindedness.
And are OK on your vision of things.

It's a very serious diplomatic position in CSM.
So, we will first wait and see other candidate's campaign.
And we will after ask to our organization agents to endorse some good candidates.
We must confess we like two candidates at this moment.
And you are one of them.

Best regards.

My negative post on Cagali's application was deleted by an ISD because for some reason we can't post in-game correspondence.

Basically the tl;dr is that he kicked my alt from Brave Newbies after my main left before I had a chance to evac my stuff.

The reason? I referred to making money as 'jewing' and he called me a 'stupid f**king idiot'.

I posted the same logs on a reddit post recently and everyone agreed that he is not the kind of person we want on our CSM.

To ISDs, if you're going to snip out correspondence, ONLY snip out the correspondence and don't EVER edit my post to look like positive praise for a player that is clearly an a**hat.

You deleted the correspondence and half my post to try to look clever.

The new bro agenda is a high priority for me this year and will strongly influence who gets my vote in the CSMX election. You'll have a slot on my slate but assuming BRAVE rallies on your behalf, I reckon you shouldn't have any problems getting a seat. Big smile

I can envision the many ways you might bring your experience with new bros to bear on CSM discussions. Since it seems we can expect CSMX to be involved in lots of discussion about sov changes this year, what do you hope to bring to that discussion?

What are your thoughts about the Opportunities dev blog released today?

I may not always agree with Cagali's quest to make everyone feel at home in BRAVE, but without his amazing work with all the fantastic newbies we have EVE would be a lot less welcoming to new players. If there's anyone who's gonna really help especially new players and make sure they get the voice they deserve.

Vote Cagali Cagali for CSM!

Hi Brood!

Thanks for your post here and on Reddit. I read both. You're incorrect in a few areas, however, which I feel I should correct, just a little bit.

You weren't only kicked for your language as described above. You were kicked because of your repeated and persistent use of racial, homophobic and anti-semitic slurs. Sure I lost my temper - I'd personally warned you a number of times about it. I don't like people inflicting their prejudices on the rest of us.

Good luck out there mate,
