Hello, quite a bit of controversy here in this thread. Don't understand why ISD didn't clean up this thread since it actually got derailed.

Anyway ..................................

My question - what is your viewpoint regarding Faction standings and as a CSM member, what changes would you propose to CCP pertaining to game mechanics for Faction standings ?

Good luck to you in the upcoming CSM election.

hello all, now that the nuclear fallout has cleared, i will be addressing people's concerns and questions in a video, hopefully to be released within the next 2 weeks, hope to see you all there :)

It's been three weeks now since you said that you would posting a video in two weeks.

Not really trying to throw a stone, but should you really be running for CSM if you can make your own deadlines?

07 Candidate!

First, thank you for your time and effort (both present and future) in representing the capsuleers of New Eden! They’re much appreciated.

I’m preparing to cast my vote in the CSM12 elections. After reading the information you submitted, though, I still have a question.

By way of background, I started in Eve as a hauler, moving freight in T1 industrials and gradually working my way up in both ships and cargo. However, I repeatedly found my progress impeded by gankers who would destroy my ship and steal my cargo. In low- and null-sec space, that’s to be expected. You place your bet and take your chances. In high-sec space, however, this is very frustrating. Why have high-sec space at all then? This frustration drove me into anti-ganking, and I’ve been a proud member of Thomas en Chasteaux's High-Sec Militia for several months now.

So, my question. Where do you stand on high-sec ganking? I’ll concede that ganking is a legitimate style of game play, as CCP has ruled. But I also feel that it should be difficult and dangerous (for the ganker) in the 30% of New Eden designated as high-sec space. In particular, I’d like to see CCP tweak the game mechanics so that the criminal flag generated by looting a ganked freighter in high-sec space follows all players who handle that loot, and otherwise make looting more realistic. (Thomas en Chasteaux's ideas, not mine.)

As a member of the CSM, would you present such an idea to CCP? Would you push for its adoption? What other game changes might you consider to make high-sec ganking more difficult and less profitable?

I'm an useless nobody but rhiload you got my vote because I like solo pvp stuff. I'm not very vocal usually but I wanted to show my support.

Good luck! o7

CSM Candidate Rhiload, what is your stance on future of infantry operations in the world of eve online? Should such thing exist in the future and should it have any impact on the game?

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.

Oh yeah, we really need EvE to be esport with que for 1v1...

What not clear for me: why somebody who lives in 0.0 alliance is relevant for lowsec, just 'couse once he played there?
