You know Suitonia is in CFC right? Non-Bloc??? What are you smoking Hyde?


uh look at the sov map fam CFC is kill

The success and popularity of rhiload's meme video series 'Zkill Guides' this year is undoubtedly impressive and has at long last brought a particular style of comedy video popular in other games to EVE. However, this success should not be misinterpreted as an indicator of his knowledge or experience on the topics of balance and small gang/solo PVP, but rather just as a showing of his ability to entertain and satirise. Unfortunately for him, neither of these skills are valuable or necessary in the role of a CSM member and would actually would detract from the hard work CSM 11 did to restore productive and serious relations with CCP by trivialising important discussions on balance topics.

Despite his comparisons to me in regards to garnering a CSM candidacy backing from videomaking success, I respectfully disagree with this false equivalency. I would instead draw comparisons between rhiload and CSM 10 member WingspannTT (Chance Ravinne) who demonstrated how youtube popularity without any substance to back it up, makes for a hollow and useless CSM member. Although I certainly encourage his continued content creation which brings a smile to many-an-EVE player, I want to warn prospective voters on the dangers of letting rhiload's comedic success propel him above his station.

Having spent many hours and days over the past year working with CCP to have game balance taken as an issue seriously, I cannot in good conscious allow an EVE youtube comedian to get away with exploiting his recent popularity to masquerade as an expert on a topic he is not qualified to speak on.


*I understand that rhiload may take this as a personal insult, however, I only voice this opposition because I care about this game and these topics, and have too much respect for the CSM-CCP relationship to allow a meme candidate to detract from the serious work of the council. I do not know him personally and am sure he's a nice person and dedicated player.


Jesus... we almost made it a year without drama from the csm.. theres a right and a wrong way to do things when representing the csm. I think we can all agree this is not the right way.

Don't act like people would have voted for you without your videos. You're now not the only one with a YouTube channel running for csm. Wingspan was a ****** to want to give JFs an agro timer, but you were trying to get cargo buffs for battleships. You're irrelevant.

I read through his post multiple times and their is very little that could even vaguely be considered constructive or useful.

A. He thinks Suitonia is a better smallgang/solo pvper candidate without actually providing any evidence or arguments for it

B. Attacks his knowledge and experience of small gang/solo pvp because he doesn't like Rhiload's content format. I.E he doesn't actually say why Rhiload isn't experience or what even experience can be based upon. Other than style the Hyde's and Rhiload's videos really aren't that different. He doesn't once describe what qualifies a player as experienced at game balance.

C. Attacks Wingspan for being a useless CSM member without actually describing what a useful CSM member is.

"propel him above his station." - Hyde. Says everything you need to know about Hyde. He's an egotistical tryhard who should step off his high horse instead of talking **** about others.

Mr. Hyde i had some respect for your efforts as CSM and your vids....but now after i read your post, i must say:
This is some serious bullshit!
Your're affront people, you don't know...maybe "chance" a bit, but surely not rhiload.
If you are rly care for the game, you should spend your time with supporting people, where do you think could fit as future CSM.
But complaining about ppl you dont even know. and trying to stop their efforts...is some subhuman ****. This sounds not like a guy who had some progess this year as CSM, to make the game "better".
This sounds like a bitter-vet and cryhard!
Poor Mrs. Hyde!

Btw. I know rhiload and believe, that he's able to do good stuff as CSM.

Seriously Hyde? Useless CSM member? I think if you take a step back and consider that literally a third of CSM X quit, boycotted CSM, got removed, or were implicated in some kind of scandal, it's pretty insulting and petty to use me as an example of a useless CSM.

Why don't you spend 10 minutes thinking about how useful all the "vets" of CSM X were who literally were so bad they disappeared or got kicked before using me as an example of uselessness. Some of them straight up went AWOL and left EVE, but somehow I'm the bad guy.


  • When Citadels were going to have features that would RUIN wormhole space I pushed (along with Corbexx) for their removal.
  • When literally nobody on CSM understood how missile damage application worked I lobbied hard to try to bring Missile Guidance Comps and the associated Rigor Catalyst nerfs to a reasonable point
  • When the new probing system was being put into place I pushed back again and again and again to get every fix possible made that wormholers and explorers were asking for
  • When the camera was completely SCREWED I sat with CCP and Jayne for several hours to walk them through community feedback on solo, fleet, and videomaking issues
  • Don't even get me started on just straight up trying to be a positive productive member while dealing with pretty much the most toxic CSM environment of all time
  • That stupid bracket for your own ship was part of my UI QOL agenda...
  • Did I mention that I actively and positively contributed to CSM all friggin year?


I don't believe in calling people out by name, but there were legitimately veteran players on CSMX that didn't know how attributes affect skill point gain. Meanwhile they ranted just as loud about how injectors should work. There were veterans that responded to MAYBE 10% of the feedback posts in Confluence, even on issues they in theory knew about. When we had a branding/advertising exercise, one well-loved CSM flat out refused to participate on some unimaginable grounds. But you know, I'm the problem, right?


And you expected thanks?

You dumb choob.

The purpose of the EVE Online forums is to provide a platform for exchange of ideas, and a venue for the discussion of EVE Online. Occasionally there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions. Forum users are expected to be courteous when disagreeing with others.


So far only one action has been necessary here, and I'd like to keep our activities in here to an absolute minimum.

Disagreements, arguments and everything is fine and welcome, this is a forum after all. But please do so in a meaningful manner without making a mess of things.

I disagree with Mr Hyde.

Streaming and public exposure of pvp and tournaments is a growing aspect of Eve Online, one which I think needs more attention. So in that regard as well as having an informed opinion about small-gang balance, I think Rhiload has a lot to offer as a CSM member.

Tbh you were more of a Yoloswag CSM poster boy than anything else. And you were carried by your YouTube subs. Saying that Hyde was carried was and is ridiculous seeing has his sub count was by far lower than yours. Did people vote for him because he made videos? Probably. But I think most people voted for him because his videos showed he had a firm grasp on how EVE mechanics worked.

Same reason why somebody would vote for Big Miker.

Also saying you were a positive member while posting this salty of a post kind of make that hard to believe.


And also why not vote for Suitonia and Rhiload? Your allowed multiple votes for that reason. Suitonia seems to have a better understanding of the mechanics. Rhiload seems to have a decent, more than me at least, understand of mechanics, have both would be a positive in my books.
