yep carrier killed in honour of two steps (fair play to the pilot as tbh we'd never have killed him if he wanted to sd MUCH respect for that )

as for two step great guy works really hard (maybe to hard we dont see him nearly enough in corp now)

I have to say it loudly - Two Step is a GOOD MAN. Seriously. The dude single-handedly ensured the elimination of CSM 'alts' because of his drive and dedication. I may have created wormholes, but this man lives the dream. o7 Josh Cool

Haven't seriously tried WH pvp (living there) yet but have often thought about it. I know where the rest of my support is going Blink

EDIT: Two Step liked my post...and everyone else's. Clearly he took this mindset to heart in the form of flattery, "If I had enough ribbon I could conquer the world."

Two Step is /the/ wormhole candidate. He out-ranked most CSM6 mains in terms of effort.


ps: Get AHARM burn the Taggart Transdimensional hole to the ground, Objectivists are nauseating. If anyone can find and purge them, it's you guys.

I think I can say, Most of AQUILA INC will be voting for you.

And don't forget my damn damage window. I want that!

His avatar makes it look like he's got indigestion, but Two Step is one cool dude! He's got 'big-ups' from Mittens and Seleene, so what are you waiting for (apart from the polls to open)... get voting!

+1 from me.

PS If you live in a wormhole and DON'T vote Two Step for CSM 7, we'll come and invade you. Lol

As a WH resident you obviously already have my vote(s). But just for the sake of getting to know your views a bit better I'd like to pose some questions.

I think most (WH) people will agree that the WH mechanics as they are now are in a pretty good place, however, stagnation is death and at some point enhancements or changes will come. Besides POS improvements which we probably would all like, what do you feel would be a logical next step for wormholes in terms of new features or changes?


Secondly, W-space is interesting in that trough the C1-6 system it allows a place for any size corp to venture forth and stake their claim in the unknown without having to worry (too much) about getting their POS removed the very next day. Do you feel that this is right or that C1-3 holes are perhaps a little too safe from player interaction?

Thanks for running - I know a whole bunch of people voting for you (as am I).


I like it that smaller corps / groups get a place without cyno's, local and unpredictable travel. Never know who your going to meet in WH space!



What (if anything) could be improved in WH's?

I.E. :

When is any of the RP stuff going to be iterated on? Sansha is opening WH's everywhere. How's he doing it, and is it replicable? Anyone currently working on the "lore" of WH's?

Small corp oportunites in C1-4 (Homesteading?).

Sleeper buffs/nerfs? (I think it would be kewl to have a random % chance of jumping through a WH to find a coupel of sleeper frigates (in a C-1) guarding the WH, up to a couple BS's/Cruisers guarding Higher class wormholes). And make it random so you can't say "No sleepers here, must be someone found this already" - no free intel!

WH Generators for K-space (See Sansha Incursions).

A,B,C's in WH Space? Where and How Much? What is appropriate for each level?

Gases/Reactions/Drugs - WH's would seem to present perfect "smuggling" opportunites.

Other random questions:

Hi-Sec war-dec mechanics - This new expansion supposedly is called "WAR!" - is CCP involved in looking @ the (currently broken) war-dec mechanics?

Anti-Botting Mining - Random 'roid spawns, random event spawns, random belts?

Mining Buff: Lets face it, for new players Mining represents one "familiar" term/activity from other games. Right now it is more worthwhile to mine w/lasers (i.e. - npc's) - Is mining being looked at/iterated on?


Sorry - I'll stop here, I know your busy.

Again, thanks for running - we look forward to your next term as a full member of the CSM!

Bob is the god of Wormholes.

That's all you need to know.

We actually already did that, a few months ago. I guess it is time to find their home again... :)

The best kind of CSM favor trading is when someone ends up screaming and bleeding at the conclusion of it.

For new features, I would love to see CCP add new sites with every expansion. I would also like to see more wormhole connections. Give C4s or C5s dual statics. Our wormhole map too often is a straight line.

I would also love to see Class 7 wormholes, perhaps with interesting mechanics like no moons.

The tier 3 BCs help make C1s a little more vulnerable, but yeah, I am concerned by the relative safety of some of the lower class wormholes. I would have preferred CCP restrict POS size in lower class wormholes, as a large ECM faction POS is awfully safe in a C1 right now.

Considering voteing for you, we do need a wormhole candidate of some kind. Are you going to push for a change in the self distruct mechanic?

Not being able to s/d within a pos shield would cause alot more fights. Also i think when you self distruct it should turn off all your active mods, its incredibly anoying to watch cap ships self distruct over and over again because you cant drain them of cap and dps them down within 2 minutes.

Yes, see the Arek'Jaalan Project on the eve wiki (can't link there because this forum sucks)

Small corp oportunites in C1-4 (Homesteading?).

Is there an issue here? Small corps are already living pretty successfully in C1-C4s.

Sleeper buffs/nerfs? (I think it would be kewl to have a random % chance of jumping through a WH to find a coupel of sleeper frigates (in a C-1) guarding the WH, up to a couple BS's/Cruisers guarding Higher class wormholes). And make it random so you can't say "No sleepers here, must be someone found this already" - no free intel!

Sure, I'd love to see a little more randomness and change from the Sleepers.

WH Generators for K-space (See Sansha Incursions).

These actually already exist, there is a sov upgrade that nobody uses that generates wormholes.

A,B,C's in WH Space? Where and How Much? What is appropriate for each level?

When we saw the actual numbers for amount mined from w-space, this turned out to not be a big issue. I think in general grav sites should scale just like other sites, with better sites only found in higher class wormholes.

Gases/Reactions/Drugs - WH's would seem to present perfect "smuggling" opportunites.

AHARM makes drugs in our wormhole... :)

Hi-Sec war-dec mechanics - This new expansion supposedly is called "WAR!" - is CCP involved in looking @ the (currently broken) war-dec mechanics?

Yes.

Anti-Botting Mining - Random 'roid spawns, random event spawns, random belts?

Would be good, but first "gun mining" needs to be eliminated.

Mining Buff: Lets face it, for new players Mining represents one "familiar" term/activity from other games. Right now it is more worthwhile to mine w/lasers (i.e. - npc's) - Is mining being looked at/iterated on?

If you check the last CSM minutes, you can see that we discussed removing drone mineral drops. All of the current CSM pretty much agree that you need to remove "gun mining" before you can make mining a viable profession again.

I agree that SDing within a POS shield should not be allowed. I would love to see longer SD timers for cap ships. I have also proposed to CCP that activating SD locks all your racks on overheating, which would burn out the mods before you go down.

Two Step did an incredible amount of work and takes the CSM seriously. I absolutely endorse Two Step for CSM and strongly encourage you to give his candidacy a look.

Thanks for the kind words! If you were running again, I would encourage nullseccers of any alliance to vote for you.

My alliance feels very strongly about this as we are not only wspace residents but mercs as well. No SD in POS shields would make system invasions way more fun.
