Corbexx for CSM 9 - Wormholes deserve better

Greetings.

I'm Corbexx and I'm announcing my intention to run for CSM 9.

The reason I'm running is that I want the game to keep on improving, and to make sure that wormhole space continues to be the great place it is. This includes keeping bad ideas like "wormhole stabilizers" from ever seeing the light of day again.

I was planning on running next year, but after listening to the wormhole CSM debate I was unimpressed with the current candidates. Since there was nobody I wanted to vote for I decided to move up my plans and run.

In real life I'm a 35 year old that lives in the UK. I enjoy martial arts, especially MMA. I have competed in several events in the US and am now helping to organise amatuer MMA events in the UK. I've been informed this might be a very useful skill, as sometimes CCP might need a little "head knocking" ;). The nature of my job also makes me very lucky in that I have a lot of free time to devote to the CSM if elected.

I started playing Eve over 4 years ago, after some real life friends moved in to a wormhole. I joined them and spent 4 months in a C3 wormhole, then we left for null sec for 10 months and became a director. I got tired of that and then moved back to highsec and spent a couple months doing level 4 missions while I finished a few skills for my first big wormhole corp CCRES. After 6 months, I moved on to AHARM and am now in Exceed, part of NOHO. I also have a successful T3 production and cap building corporation. I build at least 4 capitals and over a thousand T3 subsystems every week with 2 other people.

Some of the things I have done while in these alliances include:
Lots and lots of PVP
Running reaction pos's in nullsec
I was the diplomat for AHARM
Planning and executing invasions on other wormholes
Helping to defend wormholes
Helping organise large multi alliance wormhole fleets
Helping remove Gevlon Goblin from wormhole space. Sure Goons and RvB did most the heavily lifting but we let them back in to finish the job after a little singing
Being part of some truly great wormhole fights. Probably the most memorable was taking a armour fleet with triage support and an officer fit moros in to a pulsar, against 3 times the caps and coming out on top

I'm running mainly as a wormhole candidate as thats what I know best, though I do have a lot of industry experience as well.

While I realise the CSM isn’t a group of junior game designers, I think it is important to let you, the voter, know how I feel about a few of the more important topics under discussion by the wormhole community.

I am in favor of Alliance bookmarks.
I would like to see class 4 wormholes made more desirable and useful by for instance adding a second static
Black Holes should be viable in some manner.
Insuring that when T3's get balanced they are still useful and viable in wh's. I don't want them nerfed into the ground as the knock on effect will be to make the income in lower class wormholes even worse.
I'd like to see a slight increase in income to c1 to c4 as I feel the risk to reward ratio in them is just not balanced at the moment compared to level 4 missions or incursions.
I think grav sites within wormhole space need to be only findable with probes again. Currently, mining in wormhole space is pretty much a no go.
Making sure wormhole space isn't forgotten about when CCP is designing other systems. A good example of this happening was the ESS release this year, and the unintended effects within wormhole space.
And of course, the POS system needs to be redone.

Now I'm well aware that wormhole space is arguably the least broken space, and I want to keep it that way, so I'll be wanting to make sure changes that affect the whole of Eve will not negatively affect wormholes.

For hisec industry I'd like to see it made less clicky. A simple start to this would be to have reverse engineering, invention and production default to the pos module the blueprint is located in, not having to select that location manually every time you do a job.

Why me over other wormhole candidates.

I feel my communication skills are good and I can put forward a good and well thought out argument. I've made a lot of contacts in wormhole space among both low and high class corps and alliances. Some have even said I know just about everyone in wormhole space, it's sadly not true but I'm working on it. While I live in a high class wormhole (Polaris is a C6 with a C6 static) I'm certainly not going to forget about the lower class wormholes. I'm happy talking to anyone should they feel like contacting me.

First of all I feel my general wormhole knowledge is right at the top. I have a great understanding of how issues will affect not just C5 and C6 but all classes, something I feel a lot of people forget about. I’ve spent the last few years talking to people all over wormhole space, this isn’t something I have just started doing now for a CSM campaign. I’ve helped develop the fleets people fly nowadays in wormhole space. I also have plenty of time to dedicate to this which is something I hope to prove over the coming weeks.

I know where my #1 vote will be going this year.

While I have not had much interaction with Corbexx, I feel that wormholes need a continued strong presence on the CSM and that is why I endorsed him on my own recommended ballots earlier today.

Possibly the strongest wormhole candidate since Two Step. Is known to nearly everyone in that community, has forgotten more about wormholes and wormhole mechanics than I have ever learned and of course in what seems to be a banner year for industry he has some interesting thoughts there too. He could probably beat me in a RL fight too.

Great to see another wormhole resident step up to run for CSM9!


Options are great, and we could benefit from more representation. Good stuff :)

I'm glad you like having alliance bookmarks. What do you think about blapdreads?

Regarding T3 balance, what do you think of the current trend in nullsec that every major alliance/coalition is deploying T3 doctrines en-masse. CFC has re-rolled out Tengus, Russians have been using Tengus for a long time, and NC./PL make wide use of Proteuses/Proteoi.

In their current state, Tech3's do everything better than HACs (except for the ishtar), have much better staying power than Recons, and can provide much more reliable boosts than Command Ships.

You wish to keep T3's viable, but what is your stance on the current state where "generalized" T3's being better than "Specialized" Tech 2's at their job?

"Proteuses" would be the correct English declension, but if you wanted to get all Greek about it, then they'd probably be Proteoi.

In wormhole space I don't think they're that much of a problem. You need a support fleet to make them work, which can be countered in several ways. Nueting or jamming webbing and painting support ships is probably the easiest.

I really don't see any issues with them being used on mass.

I feel the fact they cost about twice the amount of a "Specialized" Tech 2 ship, combined with the skill point loss when you lose them justifies, them being better.

Some wormholers have expressed discontent, thinking they're overpowered. Would you address their concerns or lobby to keep them as is?

Also how do you feel about the recent tracking change nerf to dreads?
