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?

Thanks for the reply, Mynxee. That such a distinguished former CSM member would say so make me very happy, and I hope I can be worthy of your kind words.

Brave Lives in Null. We moved here, and we're planning on staying for a bit - at least until we move into Thera when the Drifters take over the universe. What can I bring to that discussion? The Point of view of a huge alliance full of new players who are trying to get to grips with the mechanics of Null and the stagnant nature of the place - something we feel deeply, even in the most content rich region in 0.0 space.

I don't want Sov to be the domain of a handful of mega rich and supremely powerful players, I want it to be vibrant, and alive, and I want to hear the pitter-patter of tiny newbie spaceships rattling around the joint. I want to see Malcanis' Law used to the betterment of the New Player Experience - which I think is easily possible.

The Opportunities Dev blog is exciting. I'm yet to play through them all, but they look very promising. However, one of the biggest criticisms of the tutorials were that they trained a new player for a life of Solo PVE, which is categorically unsuccessful in retaining new players, and utterly fails in introducing people to our awesome community.

I don't see that this is much of an improvement in that regard.

I think it could be. Opportunities like "Enter a Wormhole", "Mine Arkanor in NullSec", and "Harvest Gas in a Wormhole" encourage newbros to explore NullSec and W-Space earlier on. Further opportunities like "Fight Another Player in NullSec" or "Fight Another Player in a Wormhole" will inevitably get the newbro blown up, which is often Step 1 of the Recruitment Process.

How many more newbros & new factions plant their flag in NullSec depends on how easy it is to steal an empty system in the new sov rules. Even HERO has quite a few empty systems I could imagine new alliances planting their flags in.

You say you understand new players. New players or the lack thereof are going to decide if EVE continues to thrive or wilts away slowly in the coming years.

I do think Brave has clearly done many things right. When I would visit Barleguet in 2014 I would often be impressed at the numbers undocking to pvp, mine, probe, gatecamp, and so on.

However I have never played in Brave and have not had the pleasure to create any Brave spy characters (exactly what a spy would say) so I have not had the pleasure to read your corp chat, forums or hear your Teamspeak. What is it that Brave does to engage so well with new players and capture their imagination?

What do you think it is that we the players and they the devs can do to reveal the Fing awesome aspects of EVE when they are 3 months in and already feeling the drudgery of running some missions in hi-sec?

You have my vote because being in BNI , I am able to see the work that you and all the others players are doing for us ,the newbies. If it wouldn t be the Brave Newbie community , I m sure I wasn t playing this game anymore. So, If you will represent newbies in CSM, as you do in our corporation , than you should be there for us!!!
Also I wanna thank you now with this opportunity for everything that you are making for us. Or maybe I should send a corporation mail with thanks? Nahh, I don t wanna dye before my time! :)))
Good luck!!

The Law Organization agents made the best so you could be elected again.
