How foolish to think that face-to-face human interaction would have any effect on decision making processes.

Clearly the actions of anonymous spaceship characters at their computers is far more convincing.


Well if the face-to-face CSM meetings and skype calls are believed to be effective by "all" the council members concerned in an advisory capacity then I would say that it does have an effect.

Or that perhaps CCP do in fact place stock in these annonymous people who actually pay their wages? Or have forums to openly discuss ideas? Or that they hold Expo's? Or the reason they have marketing feedback questionairres? Or that unsubbing influences usually can have a strong infleunce of commercial MMO developers?

But of course it is easy for you to blow the Goon horn for your master in his claims that CCP actually do their buisness in bars in Iceland at the directive of a "whispering" Mittani. I do understand that business does have an element of social entertaining and I'm sure it helps with understanding people but I doubt it is as effective as you're being told to believe or as much as the Mittani wouldn't inflate the truth for his own purposes and ego of course. Roll

If what you claim is true I would like and I'm sure the playerbase would interested in CCP coroborating these claims that the interests of EvE and CCP development are solely being influenced and directed purely by the Mittani's bar bill.

If he got out of his parent's basement and made friends, he'd realize that he can disprove his own argument when he gains social skills.

CSM6 (chaired by Mittens!) is known for getting CCP to change their direction from developing designer spacejeans and Twilight Online to actually developing the core of EVE's gameplay. CSM3 is known for Larkonisgate. All the other CSM's are known for....

Exactly. Vote for Mittens.

Before I retired, I was a project manager of international multi-million pound contracts in computing so I have some capabilities in understanding how discussions and social entertainment can influence buisness. Something I don't need my mother or my freinds to confirm for me, though they have remarked how proud they are of some of my achievements. They also are the few individuals I will let call me an "idiot" if it's deserved.

You've got my vote already based on track record and ~, but I was kind of curious what you felt was the most glaring issue still needing rectumfying?

pegging joke spotted

risk/reward in nullsec: the pointlessness of actually holding sov. this includes stuff like a tech rebalance, boosts to the ihub upgrade system, general buffs to null income to bring it inline with 'spewing isk everywhere for no risk' experiences in hisec like l4 mission botting and incursions

there's a bunch of other crap that I'll continue to push for, of course - dead horse/modular pos revamp, turret titan tracking rebalancing, EAS impacting ewar immune ships, farms and fields.

this isn't anything new from what we've been doing in CSM6, it's just going down the agenda trying to get CCP to patch the sucking chest wounds as they do triage to bring Flying in Space back to where it should have been in priorities

The King of Space has my vote.

From the formless void's gaping maw, there springs an entity.  Not an entity such as any you can conceive of, nor I; an entity more primordial than the elements themselves. In its wake there will follow a storm, as the appetite of nothing expands over the world. The Prophecy is true. Grayscale has come.

There's no way I can vote for any CSM 6 member that takes credit for putting CCP on the right track. It's the thousands of pod pilots cancelling their accounts which put CCP on the right track. You're there for CCP to bounce their ideas off of you and can be commended for that, but to take credit for opening CCP's eyes and putting them on the right track is proposterous.

Would you agree with that, Mittani? I didn't read the walls of text so just trying to get clarification here as it sounds like that's the negative thing about you on some posts I've read.

Are you threatened by the up and coming Xenuria? Do you think his policies accurately represent his lack of understand of this game or were you just watching those eyebrows throughout that whole video?

Does "general buffs to null income" also mean trying to make nullsec mining better? Highsec miners can eat a thousand flaming dicks, but nullsec miners actually have to take risks.
