Corbexx, CSM X

Greetings.

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

Last year was a bit of a rush for me, with me deciding to run at the last minute, This year I'm much more prepared. Being already on CSM 9 means should I get elected I can hit the ground running and hopefully accomplish even more.

I started playing Eve over 5 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.

Some of the things I have done while in these alliances include:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Representing W-space on CSM 9.


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

Some of the work I have done this year on the CSM.

  • C1 to C4 pve testing, leading to some nice buffs to W-space.
  • Loads of pos research, with over 100 questionnaires sent out and the information sorted for CCP.
  • A wormhole general little things thread, leading to loads of small upgrades (sigs ID's staying over downtime, D scan and probe scanner being split).
  • A wormhole pve little things thread.
  • Multiple wormhole townhalls,
  • Attended all Sugar Kyles eve uni chats.
  • PvE sounding board with players and some CCP Developers (which has been really constructive).
  • Managed to attend all meetings with CCP except 1 (approximately 30 or so).
  • Be incredibly available to W-space people, with over 370 people now having access to me on skype, and answering 20 to 40 eve mails a week.
  • Written up more than my fair share of summit minutes.


What will you get from me.

Some one who has very good wormhole knowedge and experience. While my main lives in a C6 wormholes I have alts in several lower class wormholes, and understand issues they have in them. I'm some one who isn't affraid of work and will happily put in HUGE hours to get stuff sorted. I have good communication skills, and will happily chat to anyone about issues. Someone who is no nonsense,be you a solo player, ceo of a huge allaince or a CCP dev, If your idea is good I'll tell you that, if its terrible, I'll tell you that as well. Experience, I have a much better understanding on how the CSM works now, and how to get the most for people I'm representing.

Fully support Corbexx and will have him on the #1 spot on my list. He goes out of his way to reach out and get feedback and opinions from every wormhole corporation out there, from all classes of systems and demographics. If you live in W-Space and you don't vote for Corbexx, you're doing it wrong and you should feel bad.

Corbexx has been doing an outstanding job on CSM 9, and I am happy to fully endorse him next time around. He has been putting a ton of work into the CSM process, far more than I ever did, and he has been getting results. If you live in w-space and don't vote for him, I will personally invade your hole and evict you.

+1. Corbexx has been excellent this year and I expect no less going forward.

Also, I am slightly afraid to *not* endorse him after he picked me (90kg) up and threw me over his shoulder like I was a sack of flour at FF a couple years ago...

Best of luck, my friend. You have my vote.

Corbexx has been an outstanding CSM rep, both in general and for wormhole space in particular. He has worked his tail off for both low-class and high-class holes. I don't have to wait for my annual endorsements post to tell you I endorse him wholeheartedly for CSM X.

He should be at the top of your ballot if you care about wormholes.

Thanks for all your hard work, Corbexx, keep it up.

I will be voting for Corbexx. The blue loot buy order increases have made it much easier to fuel my POS and still make a profit in a C2 wormhole all by myself. And that's just my favorite thing he did...

Corbexxx has been good to work with. Even if his name sounds somewhat like that of a male pron star Blink

He'll be on my recommendations.

Woo! CSM XI!

I can not speak highly enough of what having Corbexx appointed as the wormhole delegate has accomplished in terms of building understanding with CCP in regards to the wormhole communities unique needs and concerns.

We can at times as a community be a divided house of cats. It is my opinion as a pilot, as a member of the wormhole community and as the CEO of a wormhole corp that we could not ask for a better representative of our needs and culture to CCP then Corbexx.

The man has proven himself more then up to the task and is always available to discuss concerns or hear ideas on how to make our little piece of eve a better place.

You can count on Un.Bound's voting support for as long as your able to provide your time into the future, and will continue to have our gratitude for all the time and effort you've already put in for us.

TL;DR

Step 1: vote Corbexx

Step 2: Profit!

Voted for you last election and will do so again. You were the character that got me into wormholes and I haven't looked back since.

Corbexx has gone above and beyond what is required for the wormhole community during his time as a CSM member. The wh townhall meetings have been an outstanding success where we have managed to hear many different points and get ours across. His work on the income for wormholes has not gone unnoticed, neither have his efforts overall.

Corbexx is a silent (not so much) guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight. (Okay so that last bit was stolen from Batman and I am not even sorry Lol)

Quoted from Doc Fury: "Concerned citizens: Doc seldom plays EVE on the weekends during spring and summer, so you will always be on your own for a couple days a week. Doc spends that time collecting kittens for the on-going sacrifices, engaging in reckless outdoor activities, and speaking in the 3rd person."

Don’t let Corbexx’s extremely high level of competence fool you, he’s also a super fun guy and has a great sense of humor. He’s a great advocate for WH space, and has been (and is still) pushing CCP on important WH matters. If you’re at all involved with WH space, this guy should be at the top of your ballot.

He also rocks Hawaiian shirts.

Corbexx, I voted for you last year, and I greatly appreciate the work you've done for the wormhole community. The new shattered wormholes look awesome, and I'm sure you've been weighing in on their development. My primary point of concern i the fact that you sat through the meeting in which CCP announced their decision to remove high sec awoxing and said almost nothing. Could you elaborate on your feelings on this topic?

Not everything from the meeting is in the minutes, Going back and looking through them there is actually a fair bit I said in them. I remember that meeting very well as it became pretty heated. First I think you mean the corp on corp aggression not axowing as awoxing is different.

Corp mechanics are INCREDIBLY complex, very unintuitive. At the moment the optimal way to play in hisec and be safe is to be in a npc corp. Removing the corp on corp in hisec is a good thing for newbies who just don't understand the game mechanics. Yes there will be issue, yes it will affect RvB and eve uni. but on the whole I think its for the better. You can still infiltrate a corp and steala nd rob them blind, no issue there.

Every month I go to both of Sugar Kyles Eve uni chat, and this is brought up every month as a issue.

Thanks for the reply. Would you agree then that encouraging new players to join corps in high sec is more important than keeping a number of veterans in the game that use this as their primary play-style?

I realize corp theft is a major point of gameplay in wormhole space, but it in not available in most cases in high sec. Corporations in high sec don't have in space assets in general and function more like communities than cohesive entities. These groups will be virtually impervious to intra-corp aggression unless massive amounts of resources are thrown into suicide ganking their mission ship. If this change occurs there will be no reason to join corps in high sec at all for theft or aggression because a wardec or suicide gank will be required to achieve the same goal. I have a number of friends that are ready to cancel their accounts if this change goes though.

Unfortunately this has lost you my votes, you were in my top 5 last year. I do not agree that this change will be an improvement to gameplay for anyone. There are ways to protect yourself from intracorp aggression and simply removing it only helps the corporations that can't be bothered to take the proper measures. As far as I'm concerned this will do harm to Eve's position as a violent and treacherous game world without actually providing any benefits. People will still remain in NPC corps to avoid war decs.

the first part all depends on numbers which I'm affraid I just don't have.

You do realise you can still do corp on corp in nullsec, lowsec and w-space so your friends can still do what they have been doing. I'm not sure why they have to stay in hisec to do this but if there is please mail me lettering me know.

My counter statement to that would be that it means corporations who chose to remain in HS are immune to it. If I want to bring down a corp I'm going to have to infiltrate and either steal everything or convince them to give me shares, which is true in all space. But if I want to just dish out some quick justice without actually destroying the whole corp, I can now do this anywhere except HS.

Step 1 to making HS a theme park.

Stop thinking of this as a "you can pvp anywhere" thing. Let me use a real example. I had someone I wanted to target that is a high sec mission runner. My ability to suicide gank such a target is extremely limited especially since he was flying an armageddon with an extremely heavy tank. Any attempt to gank him would cost far more than the ship is worth and require many people. Wardeccing would just cause him to close corp and make a new one. This leaves three options:

1. Get him to leave high sec (ccp kindly added popups warning that you are leaving high sec. This isn't easy)
2. Trick him into a limited engagement (I was assuming he was smart enough to not fall for this)
3. Convince him on an alt to let me join his corp.

This is not a new player. He has been playing eve significantly longer than I have, so I doubt cheap tricks with lying about game mechanics will work. My only option was to gain his trust, but with the changes in the future, this will be useless.

Also, the move to low sec suggestion is insulting. I do pvp in low, but it is an extremely target poor environment unless you join an extremely large corp/alliance. Null is even worse for small groups, and is even more inaccessible from high sec, and as much as I love w-space the gameplay there is very different.

Good luck on your campaign.
