If you enlist in a player corp in EvE, I believe you should vulnerable to a war declaration. There isn't much to debate here, its always how its been, and always how it will be. I believe players that can't stomach being wardecced should have the option to choose the NPC corp of their choice (for role play reasons) though the price of security should be a noticeable tax rate (CONCORD security ain't cheap).
So you can still haul, mine and trade all you want through NPC corp alts and enjoy a significant advantage over those who don't, you just can't rat as efficiently? Although I'm glad you recognize this as a problem, I'm disappointed that for whatever reason you can't accept that the only solution with substance behind it is simply cutting the cord and doing away with NPC corps entirely (the perma-CONCORD kind, not the faction warfare casual-PvP kind).

But for the record, I do support your platform's general sentiment that CCP should stop kowtowing to the threat of losing carebear subs and actually fix the exploits that they are currently running riot with much to the detriment of the rest of the game.

You wrote a 20 page pdf with, like, 50 references to the mittani. Uh..... wow.


Has anyone on csm 6 differentiated themselves from the mittani on any low sec issue? When it comes to low sec the mittani= csm6. And when it comes to low sec mittani has been fairly straight forward in saying he had nothing to offer.

Since Mynxee was chair did anyone do anything for low sec? All of her momentum that she built for low sec and all of the work she did to try to get things going has been squandered on csm6. Hans is the person who has demonstrated he will pick up that thread and work with the low sec community just like he has with the fw community.

If anything I know about tuskers is true, then Hans should get your vote. You may not like certain particular ideas (for example I think the gcc should be 3 minutes not 10) but the overall goals like this:

Hans Jagerblitzen wrote:

-Send the message that we want more activity in lowsec, but not more blobbing!

-Send the message that we culturally disdain the drama that complicates 0.0 warfare!

-Send the message that we are not a test bed for nullsec sovereignty improvements!

-Send the message that we are not here to be “co-opted” by nullsec groups!

are hard to refute.

Hans has researched the community and found the ideas that players want. That’s what mynxee was all about too.

I mean if hans is going to be asked to go to a csm summit and the only thing dealing with low sec is FW will be crammed in with a bunch of other “little things” he will do something about it.

Mynxee and csm 5 was pretty clearly told by ccp that they weren’t going to work on low sec or fw for 18 months. CSM5 and mynxee said well I think that is a horrible idea but eventurally determined that nothing they could do at that time would change ccp. So they just put that in the minutes and basically said good luck to the game.

Many on the csm 5 saw the game was heading down a crap path so pretty much unsubbed. The players didn’t see it so clearly although there was some uproar at those minutes. However after several crap expansions what they predicted came true. Eve languished and players unsubbed.

Now Mittani claims I am a “screecher.” Yet if we are to do some “realtalk” we will see that not only was failing to listen to csm 5 bad for the players it was bad for ccp. It was not until the situation became so dire that they had to layoff 20% of their staff worldwide before they finally realized they can’t just let eve sit.

http://massively.joystiq.com/2011/10/19/ccp-layoffs-affect-20-of-worldwide-staff-company-focusing-on-e/

Now just before this time Mittani was writing articles “in defense of incarna.”

http://www.tentonhammer.com/eve/spymaster/61

Why was he defending the worst expansion ever? Politics. If he scratches ccp’s back they will play up csm and make him look good. And that happened. Look at how happy csm and ccp were with eachother early on. CSM even played damage control at the emergency summit. Look at the meetings with mittens and ccp employees on youtube trying to reassure player the game isn’t going to ****. In exchange CCP was all happy to claim csm has done all sorts of wonderful things. The circle jerk they had going on alienated allot of players from both csm and ccp.

It wasn’t until these bad decisions (that csm5 decried back in june 2010) took such a hold on ccp’s financials that no one could deny the stupidity any longer, that mittens finally admitted that ccp needs to work on EVE. When was that goonion address? Sept or October of 2011?? That’s over a year after csm 5 already called that one.

Well better late than never. But really we don’t need politicians like that. And sadly no one in csm 6 ever stepped outside of mitten’s lockstep.

We need people who like mynxee will listen to the players and if ccp chooses to ignore them will let the players know that in no uncertain terms. This is the best for the players and the best for ccp.

I’m not saying Hans has done as much for eve as mynxee has but he is a newer player, than she is, and has already demonstrated he is willing to do that sort of work – if he is given the chance.

You have my rifter.

Would just like to note, that even tho from opposing sides of the warzone, we have united together (til the battle was complete) to fight a greater enemy before. Then it was pirates, now its CSM. The combined might of faction warriors makes their women wet in anticipation and their men feel woefully inadequate.

Free Hans jobs for errybody.

Hans seems all right. +1 given. I don't mind CSM6, they've done very well, but having people familiar with different parts of the game on the CSM is ideal, and you have a good head on your shoulders. Also you have this fancypants PDF :O

You mention you don't like micro-transactions in this thread, saying few people would want to spend money on ship skins and all that, and suggesting they be bought through in-game means.

Now pay attention, because I'm about to make an assumption without knowing any of the applicable data. :D

I don't think many people are paying IRL money for vanity items at the moment? I think Player One buys a PLEX for twenty bucks because they want a few million ISK, then some Big Shot with too much ISK for his own good buys a PLEX on the market to convert to AUR. Player One gets their ISK and Big Shot gets their SW33T!1 GOGGLES with ISK they earned in-game. You may not see monocles and codpieces being sold directly through the market just because all clothing trading is being done via PLEX.

The whole PLEX thing makes EVE's microtransaction thing a lot different to any other game. I'd be interested in hearing if people are getting their AUR from USD or ISK.

Uh, I think I had a point in there somewhere, and it was related to the CSM in some way. Whatever, I'll probably be voting for you. :)

Lastly, this is an interesting link. Note the datestamp. http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Bountyhunting_Improvements_(CSM)

Correct. With the power of 100 likes you can now all officially begin taking me seriously. Roll

Thanks to everyone who helped accomplish this in less than 24 hours time, yet still ahead of all other candidates.

Just wanted to say that I am glad that you are running for CSM, Hans. Consider yourself voted.

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

Just a reminder!!

All of you who are liking what you see here with this campaign - hit me up an EvEmail if you are a corporate leader, Fleet Commander, blogger, or other community leader. I want to get you on our mailing list.

This is a true grassroots effort, I won't be able to do this without those that support me spreading the word to their corpmates and fleet members. There will be no bean-counting, vote splitting, pre-polling, or meta-gaming here. Just some old-fashioned word-of-mouth popular support.

I am not currently spamming mail constantly, don't let that be a deterrent. It's just not necessary at this point in the campaign. We can worry about that as we get closer to the poll openings.

If you'd like to be on board for when the time comes to stump out the vote, please get in contact with myself or Shalee Lianne so I can get you into our circle.

It's nice to see a candidate focused on issues of high-sec and low-sec, instead of the meta-gaming of nullsec.

One little nit-picky thing though: Removal of sentry guns at gates in lowsec will ensure a decrease in the population of lowsec. When not even frigates can travel with a modicum of safety from gate to gate, you'll inhibit mobility and make the place even more scary for high-sec residents.

If you want to encourage more population in lowsec, making travel far more dangerous is not the way to do it.

I like your determination and apparent commitment to the game. And to be honest, Mitten's encouragement of your candidacy is a plus in your favor. You don't have to like the guy's play style to respect his intellect and knowledge of both people and the game.

Anyway, to that end, what I worry about is your determination to be anti-Mittens, anti-Seleene, anti-Trebor... etc. If you're so set against their opinions and play-styles, why should I trust that you'll work as a productive member on CSM7 rather than being the thorn in their side that you keep seeming to portray yourself as? Let's face it, they've got a lot more experience with EvE than you do, and their opinions might come from more experience than you think.

Even though some of your ideas are pretty far out there, as the pro-FW, pro-lowsec guy, you'd probably have my vote. But you're trying awfully hard to distance yourself from some others that will likely be on the CSM, and I'd much rather see a group that can work together than see it devolve into a contentious mess.

So my questions are thus...

When other members of CSM7 that play the game in discord with your world views on what is the right way to pvp disagree with your ideas about changes to high sec or lowsec rules and have alternate ideas, how will you react? And when it comes time to discuss sov warfare and super-cap re-balancing, will you have any more useful input than the naive "remove supers" response?

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

On behalf of Villore Accords [GMVA] and as head diplomat of the Quantum Cats Syndicate [QCATS], I am pleased to officially announce our endorsement of Hans for CSM.

With over 200 active members GMVA is currently the largest and most active alliance in the Gallente Militia and as such, feel strongly about many issues that Hans has made a priority. We have no desire to continue seeing large segments of the Eve player base continue to go unrepresented in the CSM.

Furthermore, I urge all Faction Warfare pilots, Low Sec dwellers, as well as any and all others who wish to see a more balanced council support Hans for CSM.

it's libelous but that doesn't mean i'm going to sue, you nailed yourself up on that cross with gusto

i don't think me highlighting your lies and foolishness for all to see counts as 'frothing' either; this is like that image macro where the troll thinks the 'victim' is all aflutter rather than being casually dismissive

you pop up every election cycle posting about how your ideas matter, and it's important that we remind any newbies about your past and your tendency towards nonsense, this is p. much a public service
