The general perception of 0.0 space, is lawless and those with the bigger guns take what they want. In most aspects you would be correct, But there are other options.

My name is Sollana, and I announce myself as a candidate for the upcoming CSM elections.

I live in Providence, and I am an Amarrian fighting for a cause greater than that of war, conquest and riches. I am Fighting for the future of our Empires.

0.0 space does not have to be war ridden and constantly changing, In the past year we have seen the fall of the Northern Coalition, We have seen the mighty powerblocks, stumble and fall. All because greed and power overcame them all.

I propose that not all 0.0 pilots think this way, as part of CVA and its allies, we aim to build something greater, something more permanent something that will live on after we have turned to dust. We build a civilisation, we build infrastructure and we build for the capsuleers who have nothing, but the will to succeed.

But Civilisation is not perfect, currently EVE does not allow us to protect our homes, unless we use ships?? Although this can produce some great fights, the old system before Dominion gave the defenders a chance, and I propose that as part of Sovereignty upgrades Station and Gate defenses should be onlined.

Concord are allowed to have station and gate guns, so why is that not possible within 0.0. This would promote a reason to SBU a system and needing to do it covertly. currently there is no risk to SBUing a system, where the only defense is to use super capitals or grind them once they have been placed.

Having armaments in position on gates and station, can be increase with upgrades in the Ihub and be based on sov level (1 battery per gate per level for instance, double that for the station). this would also add a new dynamic to gate camping reds blockading a system, as currently there is no risk in 0.0.

0.0 space does not allow for coalitions to have fully agreed charters, I propose the idea of presenting a charter. which will have many options and can be voted upon buy directors of many alliances, which will give automatic standings, standing updates (i.e if someone is turned red by 1 alliance./corp, the rest in the charter are notificed automatically of the change).

0.0 is the future of EVE, but not in the way most people see.

If you feel I can represent you, then "like" this post, and If you have questions, Please feel free to post them here.

Update: My stance is 0.0 space should have more defence against the mighty powerblocks.

Another example of my issues is Time Dialation. although this is a great Idea, why is TD taken from populated systems.

Last night a section of Providence was down to 10% TD, all because of a battle in Branch, There are issues here, especially when you can travel through delve, catch and cure aand have completely empty constellations.

I condone this idea, though having only a single reason to become CSM is a bit... well, you probably understand what I mean :)

You're going to demand everyone should shout "HUZZAH!" in local when they get a podkill, aren't you? Roll

This is my signature. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

Someday, this signature may save my life.

No, we only do that when Tolidobob gets shot by his own alliance's pos.

Like Callean said, a single reason to become CSM is a bit odd, but I do want those guns back... At least on stations...

I see the idea behind this and it may be a single item for CSM status, but in fact its a HUGE project if it gets thru. Larger than last expansion even Big smile

I fully support Sollana and his idea

I wonder what these changes would do to small gang roams, specially with the guns on gates idea.

But I do agree that "strength in numbers" and "who has the biggest guns" shouldn't be the only necessities to survive/stand a chance in 0.0.
Being able to defend what you have build by other available means then the two I mention above should be possible, and that's why I like what Sollana is saying.

I like your vision, Sollana. Unless I got you wrong, I think it can give more security for people to live in null sec almost like in high sec, where alliances have strong, long and stable sovereignty. This isn't a simple or small change. It would change an important aspect of the game and how people play it.

I've never hidden my dislike for CVA and some of its policies, so this will surprise no one when I say the idea of a CVA CSM is just frightening. Let's get a highsec carebear candidate before we let CVA impose their will on nullsec.

CVA and its NRDS allies make up a large chunk of EVE's ever growing population. It would be great if we had our voice in there somewhere. Sollana, I lova ya like a brother man, and I wish you all the best as one of my oldest friends in EVE. You have my confidence and support to represent us well.

the model is biased on a defensive stance rather than an agressive stance, that the game has now.

War and fights are indeed fun, but it has become a game of large power blocks and who can squash the little guys first.

My idea and proposal is that the little guy should have a chance.

CVA is the little guy of the 0.0 power block and we accept that, we know our place. Providence is a great place for small gang skirmish type fights, that's what people want. fun fights.

In a region with more station that most others, we feel we have the right to defend our homes. The original scope of Sov changes in Dominion did originally include the prospect of station and gate defences.

Also those wondering what would happen if you did have gate guns in 0.0, nothing same as when you gate camp in low sec.

my thoughts are this. these defences will be set via alliance standings, will require an upgrade in the ihub, and require a monthy fee as per most other upgrades.

These gate guns can be interrupted with sbus as per current mechanics.

Other points I would like to add to my manifesto.

AFK cloaking. A valid tactic or just bullying and harrassment.

I see no reason to change the reason people do this, but for 23.45 the players just sit and do nothing. probably asleep at the console.

I propose that cloaking devices require fuel to operate, for example ozone. a small amount based on ship mass required to power the device. this would make them have a vulnerability that they currently do not have.

People I have spoken too, say there should be a sov upgrade to jam cloaking devices much like a cyno jammer, thisis also a possibility.

Also there should be a method to hunt cloaky ships, we all watched war movies of destroyers hunting submarines, is this not the same. Give destroyers (space charges) that launches micro mines which travel out to a maximum distance based on skills and meta value of module. These micro mines then either explode if the contact any ship or reach maximum range. They do no actual damage but like the warp scrambler they disable the cloaking device for a complete cycle.
