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.


First of all, a disclaimer: I am terribad in PvP and I am not a FW pilot. I am an occasional solo and very small gang (2-4 ships) PvP pilot who flies small ships. But, I do have an opinion and a vote, and I want to get what I vote for.

Hans, please note the quoted "little" nitpick. After reading all 20 pages of your manifesto, this was the only thing that stood out to me as not being a good idea.

Actually, I don't mind the removal of sentries to allow frigate furballs on gates/stations - This is a good thing. It is the insta-frig-locking gang on the gate which theoretically ruins the fun for me (currently you need far more effort to nab a frig on a gate, providing a small amount of safety for a frig scout going around). I vehemently oppose any sort of mechanic where it is not possible to avoid being killed, regardless of what you do, and which (at the very least) does not come with great(er) material cost. Getting outsmarted and outpiloted is one thing, but if even a frigate scout (and no, you shouldn't have to fly a covops just to take a peek next door. If this will be the case, then what will draw new players and casual non-FW PvPers? What will become of the solo pilot?) cannot move around freely enough to let you know what is out there, then we have a problem.

So if we do away with the sentries, we need something to avoid the frig pilot getting shafted. Maybe something like having the jump cloak drop 2 seconds after we start moving? You can still catch a frig if you really want to (but it is possible to make a frig that will align faster than this, which is not necessarily bad as it does take some effort). Gatecamps still work on anything bigger and frigs can now fight on gates/stations. I see a win-win here.

So, while I like your manifesto and I am quite prepared to vote for you: Before I commit my vote to you, I would like your input on this.

Well written and I must admit that it not only caused my chest to swell but also to make me feel a little guilty ;)
Sadly my votes are all for Meissa but I wish you luck.

I like your fire Hans. As you state in your blog though: "I have no problem admitting I'm feeling pretty spent despite this being my very first blog entry. It's been nerve-wracking and taken an incredible amount of my free time and emotional energy."

If you are going to run against the likes of Mittens, and you are, as well as, should you win a seat on this CSM yet find yourself petered out already then I fear you are already a lost cause.

Succumbing to the pressure and work load, and this is just the very beginning mind you, shows that you are a premature ejaculator. If you wish to garner my three votes you need to show that you can hold out longer for more than just the first kiss.


I assure you I have plenty of stamina.

Turns out I had more time to myself to keep up with people than I thought I would. Hence, my postings.

It wasn't as much about what I can handle, I was just warning the community that if I'm slow to respond, assume that I'm away taking care of my family and job, which I don't consider "succumbing to the pressure and work load". That's just me doing what I need to do. I won't apologize for that, but I am happy to explain it at least. Cause its true.

Have faith! We've only just begun, I'm not going anywhere....

Greetings Hans Jagerblitzen,

I have spent some time reading through some of the other potential CSM 7 candidate threads and have not been convinced or impressed in any way by most of their statements (or lack of). The only thread which I considered decent was by Malcanis on his Manifesto for highsec. He has however stated that he is not running for a CSM seat.

I am edging towards perhaps voting for you, Hans. I just have one question to ask you, if you do not mind.
I know you have read Malcanis' Manifesto on Highsec.
What is your take on it, summarised in a single paragraph ?
I know, it's asking you to put it all very simplistically, it is afterall a well-defined and descriptive Manifesto.

Thank you. o/

After reading through the applications of the other serious candidates I come to the conclusion that low sec and it´s residents would be represented pretty well by You...
You got my Vote

I think another cool addition would be a bar like incursion so you know the state of the system and much is needed to be secured.

As a fairly inexperienced player, I am impressed with the issues that you have prioritised, in particular the creation of a distinction between 'weekend warriors' and 'career criminals' in order to allow for casual players who may be interested in PvP, such as myself, to engage in some fun killing of others in a space which facilitates such activities, and not have to worry so much about returning to my hi-sec home.

This is the most sober and leveled platform I've seen so far, and I would e happy to give you my vote based on what I have seen here.

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?

first of all, nice platform hans, i like it. mostly. but it has earned you my like so far and i'm inclined to give you my vote too.
its good to see someone has the will do represent "us" properly.

i can judge anything concerning fw, because i never took part in it.
but changes in the security of high and low sec got my attention. -> after some "fleshing out" definitely worth a shot.
to be honest i'd like to get my hands dirty in low sec in some fun fights, but it is quite easy to loose the permission to enter high sec again after some little "brawlings" and since im living on stuff taking place in high sec, this is kind of a barrier.
your threshold of sec standing loss (maybe put it around -1 or something?) - as long as you keep it civil, eg only shooting ships and no pods, only be "bad" while in low sec, or to some degree lower high sec - would make low sec quite appealing to me^^
though i guess will die horribly the first times...

i also welcomed your thoughts about making mining (or industry for that matter) more interessting and dynamic.
while wildly moving roids sound like fun,but it will only be fun for bigger mining fleets with a logistic support ( means at least to accounts) and make it more difficult for the solitary miner who has to rely on can mining. not every one wants to have to accounts for mining and you can not always expect to have an orca corpmate around. the have rl's too .. ^^

but adding more variety to ore yields or having barren roids mixed in, tweak mining mechanics (ice mining.... bääh) and the often asked for "real" belts, which make a full circles around planets (could be managed on a "roids per grid" base)
sure would spicing it up and encourage more moving around. (but so far no completly new ideas.. ^^)

i have one question:
whats your position to the new balancing efforts which started with crucible. do you see them finished or are you going to urge ccp to go deeper into that topic? do you see the 4 races as on par?


and, as i hope some constructive input:
i think you should communicate, that you have something to offer for the "0.0 bloc" too. (if you really do that means)
i see no reason why 0.0 and empire could not be developed in parallel and still develop individually.
Once they have the hands full maintaining and expanding their little states, they will have less time argueing empire should become like 0.0

Aren't the questions:

1) "How will CCP react to the feedback given from various members of the CSM about changes to high sec or lowsec rules."

2) "Will CCP be more receptive to proposals for changes in game play by a monolithic CSM, or by a diverse CSM that has representatives from all parts of the game?"

w.r.t. Sov Warfare . Mittani admitted in his thread that there is no consensus from the 0.0 bloc CSM on how to implement changes. Wouldn't a different perspective be helpful? Maybe not. Maybe we should rely on the same monolithic CSM to not help solve this issue again in 2012.

So basically... your entire platform is everything that doesn't involve nullsec... and the statement "I'm not The Mittani, and I'm not a goon".

Very nice PDF document, though.

No, those aren't my questions.

I have a pretty good feel for how CCP reacts to feedback. I want to know how well Hans will work out in a diverse group that he may be painting as an enemy.

I understand he has to bolster his support amongst the flock of Mittani haters that will carry him to a CSM seat. But I'm not in that group. I want to know whether casting my votes for him will be helping or hurting the CSM overall.

Let's face it, the general public elected Ankhestamapoloopy, or whatever her name was, because she made lots of good-sounding noise about rallying around her banner to save FW and lowsec and everything else empire. And she was exactly the utter failure I figured she would be.

Let's not repeat that mistake, mmm'kay? Let me ask my questions, you ask yours.

Your platform document is really quite poor.

I have read it and I don't really understand why I want you on the CSM instead of Trebor or Prom.

I know you're saying "I am the FW guy" but I read the whole thing and I mostly got "I am the macro miner guy".

After some thought, I'm gonna do with this election pretty the same i do in RL elections, and will vote the guy i don't dislike against the guy I loathe, because the guy i like hasn't got a real chance.

So Hans, you will get my vote. Good luck opposing nullsec's attempts to dictate everybody's gameplay.
