Tech is (hopefully) due for a nerf soon. What are your thoughts on moon minerals / mining, and in what direction would you hope CCP would go to ensuring that no one area of space is more 'desirable' than others. (currently the north is where all the isk is, and the south is a ghetto).

Tech and all moon goo needs to be nerfed and re-done completely. There should be finite resources available of these materials as well (see my thoughts on mining a few posts back). I'd like to see different regions of space have unique things about them that make them valuable. Some regions should still be 'worth more' than others to help drive conflict, but the current imbalance right now is just stupid.

Finally your thoughts on outposts. Should they be destructable?

Yep. Done smartly, I see no reason why every player made object in game shouldn't be blow-up-able.

Thank you for your answers.

As an aside - how would you, personally prefer the handling of outpost destruction be handled with regards to the loss of assets?

I've had the great honor of getting to know Mark (aka Seleene) since joining BDCI about nine months ago. Seleene is a stand up guy, and he works tirelessly on CSM affairs. It's both impressive and admirable the lengths that he goes to in his ~free time~ to better this game for our enjoyment. He has a solid platform with by far the best understanding of the game mechanics and the connections to make things happen. I think Seleene really shined in CSM 6, and I hope to see him on the CSM again this year -- even if it means BDCI loses a bit of his activity as CEO.

Highly recommended. Proven character and dedication. Can't go wrong.

Seleene is one of the few guys to ever be able to say " Conquered a region with the use of his NYX and then mined the very same belts with the same NYX". He is a player that has always had diverse interest and has done pretty much everything you can do in Eve from build outpost to building frigates to building titans mining in all areas of the game over his 8 year tenure and being involved in PVP of all sizes in nearly every region of the game. Pretty knowledgeable guy and someone who after 8 years of playing and 3 years of working for CCP still has a burning passion for the game.

I voted for you last term and certain to vote for you again; simply because you understand the game as both a designer and a player.

I'll ask the obvious PvE questions:

1) Missions; re-vamp required?
More missions?
Better missions?
Closer to a PvP type experiance?
Removal of '2 strikes'? (ie, 2 declines = no more missions from agent)
Removal / improvement of faction missions?
2) Small group PvE content that isn't incursions?
3) Your thoughts on improving the PvE experiance?
4) How important is the PvE aspect of the game for you and how likely are you to encourage iteration in the PvE elements of the game?

Thanks - good luck!

I've known Saline for a long time and must say that he has firm buttocks for a man of his years whereas mine are quite flabby by comparison.

The last releases of Eve have brought me back to the game and an iterative approach is one I feel to be the right one.

Gets my vote and should get yours too.

Seleene is a terrible FPS player.

His aim is bad, he gets excited far too easily, shouts a lot, types in CAPS a lot.

Back a few years ago in MC, we used to chill between contracts by playing CoD (for some reason not BF 1942 - i don’t know what we were on...). Seleene, being CEO always got picked on (naturally), but it didn't help that he was utterly useless (a week in - he worked out how to aim down a sight).

In the end (to help him somewhat) we decided to switch the server rules to 'shotguns and c4' only.

Somehow, even this didn't help him, and a good half hour was spent with various corp-mates sneaking up behind him and attaching C4 to his back, running away then detonating it. Despite this constant humiliation - he never gave up, and always kept coming back for more, aiming to get someone back (he did shotgun me in the end, only to die to another C4 while he was gloating on TS about it).

He is persistent – I’ll give him that.Big smile

I thought Seleene was a girl when I first began hearing stories about him back when MC was around. Now I just think he's a sissy. trolololo.

One thing is certain though, he really cares for this game and puts a lot of effort into making it better for all of us.

Back in years of old I was the pilot who was going to cyno in thulsadoom for his cherry popping Doomsday. But -A- didn't engage. I was kinda bummed. I could have been someone. . .

Seleene, i been reading alot, and in my perspective, you seem the most qualified and most active CSM member in CSM6.

Before i decide on who to place my humble vote, i would like to fire couple questions:

1) What is your view on Jump clones? Currently there's a 24hrs delay between using a JC, what's your stance on implementing a skill to lower the time?

2) Mining: I think that mining needs some rework, what's your proposal regarding this ?

3) LowSec: How can lowsec become more appealing and attractive?

4) Moongoo: Altho i have no contact with moongoo, i do invention, and i feel closely the fluctuations that the 0.0 power blocks make on market when there's wars over the tec moons. What is your ideas on how to fix the extreme in balance that is currently ingame?

WIth making organized attacks against Reddit and its fine assortment of content its clear that a pro Reddit candidate should be supported. Go Seleene I mean he is a dude IRL who plays a chic in eve that looks like a young boy do I need to say more!

Seleene is the CSM most impartial in this game.

He thinks in all players of eve, and not only in his friends like others do.

So all my votes is to Seleene, and I hope you stop watching colors and check what each person had done in game to make it better.

Good JOB

Greatly enjoyed getting to know Seleene over the past few years. He's knowledgeable about a great many areas of the game and takes the everyman into consideration.

Well worth voting for!
