It is known you spent hundreds of billions fighting Goons. While it's possible that you'll change overnight, the risk of that happening is low enough (for a serious space ship game) to take it.

I strongly suggest you to not vote at all! CCP sees which players who were busy voters in the previous years stopped voting.

One of the crucial problems of CSM is the total inaccountability of representatives, members can even do what Corbexx did with no consequences. You don't know me. You don't know what I'd do in the council, especially if I get a high vote. Maybe I'm a narcissistic little **** who just enjoys being important. Or maybe I can be "convinced" to participate, just like Blawrf was convinced by The Mittani to reconsider his position. It's easy to judge Corbexx, but you don't know what happened to him and how you'd act in his place.

You can trust in devs, since their employer would stand behind them in the case of a doxxing/cyberbullying/defaming attack but would destroy their career or even press charges if they'd take bribe. The company has money, lawyers and a very strong reason to not let EVE be destroyed. You can trust in this institutional system, you can trust capitalism and the legal system. You definitely can't trust a random nerd who use to rant about EVE.

Don't vote for me, vote for nobody!


I think you'd be surprised how many votes you'll get at a none of the above candidate.

You seem to be unaware of why the CSM was formed.

Corbexx changed political parties after being elected. This is a terrible thing to have happened, and he should have had serious consequences or something.

He swapped from Noho to Goons.

If it had been the other way round, Gevlon might view it differently.

Likely true, hence I shouldn't be a real candidate. Goons are players too and shouldn't be cheated out of their votes any more than WH-ers.

Lovely to see this from someone who never contributed to anything in his countless CSM terms.

Corbexx was the wormholers CSM candidate that they voted in to represent them. So he took their votes, took his seat then moved/defected to Goons, basically taking his CSM seat with him and giving the goons an additional CSM member. This was seen as a betrayal by many. Drame ensued and much pop corn was consumed.

This makes so much sense now. That is why he was so defensive about the Mittani and Digi.

I don't always agree with Gevlon (Actually I almost never agree with Gevlon), but I truly believe that he is the CSM candidate that we deserve & this man will have a high place on my ballot list. With Gevlon on board we can finally work to end the real threat to EVE Online: The posting of Lucas Kell.

Now for a question: If elected, will you build a wall around Lucas Kell so we can make EVE great again?

You're mad! Getting rid of me would mean there's no way for everyone to relate. Right now crying whenever I post unifies even the bitterest f enemies. Without that there would be chaos.

You are to late, DJ Yumene from eve-radio.com will get my 1st vote.

You do understand that if everyone else boycott's the voting, the Goons will vote and run the entire CSM, if ANY.

I agree, and that's my goal, because I believe an player impact is bad for the game, as players want advantage for themselves against other players.

User input is never bad for any game, or any other product what so ever.

CCP Greyscale: As to starbases, we agree it's pretty terrible, but we don't want to delay the entire release just for this one factor.

As I said, we must trust the devs. They also solved this crucial problem, hence the forums are still working. You can left click his name, and a menu comes up, containing "hide posts". Click it for averting the end of your sanity.

You are forgetting the following CSM members:

Sugar Kyle
Mike Azariah
Steve Ronunken
Chance Ravinne
Jayne Fillon

and not even Gorski Car is a Goon (alt) as far as I know.

Lol, interesting idea. Keep in mind though, CCP can defang it somewhat (at least for the fence sitters or the general ignoramus) through bribes like unique collectibles or whatever.
They did that starting from CSM9-10ish, iirc (sorry, cba to dig up links), there isn't any reason not to continue. A simple but effective age old tactic.

Bottomline, there's probably a cost/return threshold somewhere for CCP to maintain the CSM structure as EVE moves along in maintenance mode. The initial CSM works were decent during its earlier years (peaking around Mynxee time, imo) but as time moved on, the whole platform turned into a lobby group, similar to certain countries' political model. Nothing to admire there, same old thing rules. Btw, regardless of NDA, leaks will continue to happen - through convenient errors/accidents, covertly, unoficially or through oral whispers. That's a given.

The CSM needs a systemic overhaul.

Edit: Response to the question whether Goons will control the entire CSM where no one votes, it doesn't matter.
Break the system. Let the whole CSM XI be full of Goons.
