This is a question of interpretation, I joined in 2009 and I think hisec is a lot more dangerous then it was then, also there are no safe spaces in Eve, hisec is not safe, you fly a freighter with over 1bn of cargo, you fly haulers and transport ships with cargo, you fly covetors Hulks, Macs and Retreivers and Ventures and you will find out just how unsafe hisec really is.

I am also interested in running a focus group to find out why 80% of Eve's playerbase refuses to leave highsec. As I said in my first point, it is nice and safe, but I suspect there is more to it. I am not so arrogant that I claim to have all the answers, so I would like to work with alliance leaders and community figureheads from all areas of space to find ways in which we can pull people away from the newbie training ground that is high security space. It could be with nerfs, buffs, or new ideas altogether, I approach this with an open mind..


Of course there is more to it, I spent the majority of my time in 0.0, your suggestion of a focus group to discuss this is a good start, but if you fill it with HTFU players only then it is going to be a typical echo chamber of stupidity, where all you want to do is reduce reasons and rewards to be in hisec which will force people from the game rather than force them out of hisec. Also you think that these players are monolithic, well many of us, base in hisec, but also operate in wormholes and low sec and even NPC null, how do you know that they are always in hisec?

I went back to basing in hisec because AFK cloaky camping allied to massive drops bores me to death, I have proposed a fix in the features and ideas for this, with an AFK flag using an OA structure that applies after an hour of inactivity and that flag will go with any interaction on the client, also a probe that will identify the grid of a cloaked ship, so intelligent people can hunt them. The watch list removal though a good idea removed vital intel from the prey, while the arrival of skill injectors enabled players to create clean cyno alts which again does not help, all the intel used by the prey got removed so the balance is out of kilter. There are other steps that may need to be taken, but trying something that adjusts the intel balance back would be a good start.

Smaller alliances get a taste of this negative 24/24 7/7 area denial and get fed up and head back to hisec, I have seen it happen, yet many of them want to be in 0.0. You can bluster about safe spaces and carebears and all that, but why should they be forced to engage in such goddam awful play by pushing them out of hisec. I suspect you will just blame it on their attitude and suggest they go to WOW, when many of them would quite like to earn ISK and fight roaming gangs and do sov war.

When the going gets tough the Gankers get their CSM rep to change mechanics in their favour.

Thermal Damage is someone who should be on the CSM. He isn't a politician, but a player's player, and that is something the community really needs. He has a very good understanding of the community, is very active in helping others and proposing new ideas, and knows many aspects of the Eve Universe. (Even those aspects that some may or may not agree with, but are still part of what makes Eve what it is) He has already been active in proposing many new ideas to improve the gaming mechanics and would be a very good asset to the community, especially as a voice for those of us who may have become discouraged watching lowsec slowly dissolve.


Vote for Thermal Damage, and Make New Eden Great Again !!!!Lol





He has no idea about the community as a whole, due to his inability to communicate past using expletives and racist/homophobic retorts to people. Looking at his twitter account will get you that far into seeing he has little care for CCP and/or Eve online past trolling and complaining. This is not rumor milling it is verifiable there if you look, and he has been banned from twitter for said things.

As to phasing out charities I can agree to that if they are not run by CCP like Plex for Good, there is to much risk that they may be abused or misused.

High-Sec is another monster that in your own post you bring zero ideas forward as how to fix the problem. Past hoping to get with leaders to get ideas which if you dont have any of your own why should we vote for you? If you are going to run for something on platform about working with people, and yet alienating everyone around you with #heatfleet is counter to everything your post is about.

You have not posted anything about your ideas or things you are going to push for in game past making it "less safe and overly friendly".

You also attack the very people you will need to be working with in order to help change things in Eve. No matter your opinion you will have to work with them, and your campaign thread attacks them making that much less likely they will look at any ideas you or people send to you for support.

Not sure how I would feel voting a guy into a community position that purposefully and actively trolls and pokes fun at other members of the community. This is a guy who gladly and openly laughs at the idea of people attempting suicide, stating that he wishes they had done the world a favor and just killed themselves. Hardly seems like the kind of person you would want representing the player base.

Whole heartily do no endorse this candidate.

Can you specifically cite what are rumors on here?

Again you are generalizing overall comments as "rumors" you also have not answered or provided any ideas of your own to support your campaign "ideals".

This "campaign" is nothing more, but a further troll by you.

Being banned from twitter is an example of one of the rumors posted here.

I simply do not have time to cite them all.

Could you expand a bit on these statements. Which areas do you feel have become to safe? Which mechanics need to be harsher?
Which play styles could do with a bit more danger?

Everywhere and all of them. Its kind of an abstract answer but there is no mystery in space anymore, everything has become too methodical. There is a set way to do things now, min-maxed fits, optimized routes, intel-rich killboards. The main enemy to a dangerous New Eden is the API. The API doesn't allow for creativeness, only for mockery if you do not do things the 'right' way. Kill information should no longer be published and neither should the 'jumps/kills in last hour' on the ingame map.

I am also willing to entertain the idea of a delayed local in nullsec.
