It's my firm belief that the most serious problem affecting EvE is not one specific feature, nor one specific issue. It's the lack of proper iteration on player facing changes that are made to the game. Ideally, balance or feature changes should have a clear and pointed direction, and be reviewed to see what impact they actually had after the meta has had time to settle to determine whether they have been effective or not in achieving their goals.

I believe that this isn't just something CCP should be working towards however, it's something the CSM is uniquely well suited to help with, being (ideally) active and well connected players who can catch the pulse of the community, and the inevitable work-arounds that any change causes to pop up. Presenting an 'on the ground' report to CCP would really go a long way to helping them adjust changes in the direction they want to go, at least in my personal opinion


This is actually a very good point, hope you make it up to iceland so you can at least get this across to them.

Thanks for the question Apex. I'm open to any and all, and do enjoy putting my thoughts into writing, no matter how hypothetical a scenario is required for those thoughts to become realised.

I've been getting a few private mails asking about how I thought the small battlecruiser rebalance went, so I decided to answer in a slightly different format, and published an article on the what I felt a battlecruisers role was within eve, and how these changes affected them.

I'll probably write out answers to a few more questions in this long form if there are ones that I can really go deep on in terms of analysing them.

Jin'taan is an excellent FC with very good knowledge of the game.
I like his agenda for this CSM,so it's a +1 from me.

So, you think you should be on the CSM because you are "used to attending meetings, and utilizing critical thinking within them to help stop one viewpoint from being drowned out"

Optimism. I like that. Buzzwords and synergy speak... not so much.

The National Council for Excellence in Critical Thinking defines critical thinking as the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skilfully conceptualizing, applying, analysing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.

Buzzwords.

Now that I've got that off my chest. I have read your stuff in this thread, and have to say that a vote for you would not be a wasted vote.

Eve is the dark haired, totally hot emo gothchild of the gaming community

I'm going to ask a question that can, altough rather simple, say a lot about the candidate.

What are you training right now?

Hah, just logged in to make sure, and Caldari Offensive Systems V popped up as completed, so I won't have to mention just how I lost a Tengu and had to retrain that skill.

Right now I'm chugging through the slog that is Fleet Command V, and have been on a Will/Cha remap for related skills for some time. I don't specifically need to have Leadership skills, as most of the time I tend not to use Command Ships in a fleet situation for fear of both getting headshot, and also due to my much higher SP alliance mates being able to lend their own perfectly skilled alts/mains to the job.

I started training these skills again during one of the patches that delegating boosts actually worked reliably, as giving fleet warps and being able to use the regroup function are very useful tools available to an FC. However, right now they seem to be rather random as to whether they work, sit and cycle in the 'Changing position' limbo for eternity, or just flat out fail to function. It's probably one of the 'little things' I'd more selfishly try to bring to the attentions of the devs, though I'd want to wait until after seeing the implementation off the Anti-Off Grid booster changes which have been years in the coming, just to see if the issue would even be relevant.

From an FC's perspective I look forwards to said changes, as they will provide a little bit more strategic depth to combat, as I will have to choose between killing their boosting ship to reduce their whole fleet's effectiveness by a significant margin, or taking out more traditional early targets such as Recons or Logistics. This becomes especially interesting when it comes to talking about fleet comps with certain weaknesses exaggerated by certain links, such as long range battleship fleets which tend to require skirmish boosts to their recons to extend their web ranges into the medium ranges, where sig tanking fleets might be able to operate. Alternatively, compositions with (relative) low DPS being able to kill their opponent's siege or armor links early would help give them staying power during an attrition fight where ship for ship trades are occurring.

Anyway, to get back on track, about 30 days deep into training Fleet Command 5 because I feel it may be necessary in the future for something I very much enjoy doing in the game, FCing.

to me it looks more like he wants to be on the CSM because hes passionate about eve, knowledgeable about a major content driving area AND knows that he can contribute to a professional discussion (which being on the CSM is: you are an unpaid "game consultant")

instead of throwing things out like: hurfblurf I will change this area of the game and stop climate change while im at it.
a lot of thoose CSM campaigns try the thing RL politicians do: promise X and Y and think they are qualified because they are popular within X group of the game. which is dumb and bad and completly misses the point of the CSM.

so id rather see somebody going to iceland that is used to analysing systems, finding errors within them and fixing them because he does that for a living, instead of some memelord who thinks hes the **** because his peers say so.

My guest appearance on The Learning Cliff just went up! It was a fun little jaunt, even if we ended it up getting killed by blues!

I also updated my OP to include my appearance on the Jeffraider show was some great discussion there and I'd implore people to give it a listen.

If we must have a CSM, make sure it has good people like Jin'taan ...

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

Jin'Taan!

Some questions for you.

1. What kind of improvements to the UI would you like to see, that would help you FC large fleets better?

2. How would you handle rebalancing T3 cruisers and destroyers? (This is likely to come up during your term, if you were elected)

3. How would you balance the ISK making ability between high sec missions, high sec incursions, and nullsec anoms/DEDs?

4. What do you think about the proposed Rorq change, which puts it in the belt, but gives it a massive AOE shield for the mining fleet? Do you think people in Provi will risk their 2.5B ISK ships?

Good luck, man!

I did a lot of research on many of the candidates and Jin'taan def has my full support.
You have a second place on my ballot. Good luck!

The CSM XI Election are now open until March 25th, 2016. Consider Niko Lorenzio for CSM XI.

CSM matters, your voice matters, your vote matters!

You should definatly have him somewhere on your ballot.

I don't have any specific UI improvements as regards to large fleets, but I think the best change with regards to fleet fights that could be done is adding Logistics to killmails. Some people might like being the quiet assistants of the fleet, but many more want to wear their KB stats with pride.

Lynnae Suriyawong wrote:

Take away either 2, or all 3 rig slots from them. For the Svipul in particular, I'd buff small arty fitting and nerf the Svipuls powergrid. I think it's a way to nerf them that fits with their original intent.

Lynnae Suriyawong wrote:

3. How would you balance the ISK making ability between high sec missions, high sec incursions, and nullsec anoms/DEDs?


That's a hard question, and I'd want to discuss with a hisec representative as well, but I think the best thing that could be done would be to provide group PvE that is consistent to nullsec. Group work should always be worth more than solo work, as it encourages the social dynamic that is the best part of EvE. I feel like hisec incursions are a little out of whack, but they only need a little bit of shaving to be brought in line.

I really, really think it will be numbers dependant. I hope they provide something for the attacker to do whilst they are in their invulnerable mode, and don't leave it open to abuse. I like the idea of it providing a cyno as well, but disabling locking on all invulnerable ships, to incentive having tackle and a standing fleet to give the attackers a fight.

You bet, we couldn't stop them if we tried.

Thanks, have a good day and thanks for the questions.

I have been able to drop a super exactly once in my career (thanks Arche). I am in the process of training up a super alt, just because it's something that I'll look to do in the future, but no I have no experience flying supercarriers or titans.
