As a long time fan & comments contributor It would be a pleasure to send my vote your way!

As for me I would like to know where you stand on the PvE content of EVE - especially how you would like to see the missions system be used or how it could be improved to allow a wider variety of PvE style gameplay (ie. small gang PvE / missions thats not dependant on incursions, improved / different missions in low sec, PvE to better reflect PvP combat in terms of tactics & fits, exploration missions etc)

Best of luck with your election Jester!

Supported.

Jester, I would like to take this opportunity to address an item which is "not fun", and one which would be a nice add-on to EVE.

Not fun: That awful login process. Why do I need to re-enter my credentials when I want to switch to an alt on the same account. I want to return to my character screen when I log off, not to the login page.

Nice addon: A remote fitting skill + window. When I fly to a station where I have a hull I can do nothing but transit. It would be sweet if I can remotely fit my ship while in space. Perhaps a skill should be required, where there the max distance of remote fitting,and/or ship level, is increased by skill level.
For instance lvl1 is 5 jumps and frigate, lvl2 is 10 jumps and upto cruiser, lvl 3 is 15 jumps upto BC, etc.

These items might fit in your campain :-)

Regards,

Mars

ONLY THE HARD.  ONLY THE STRONG.

I'm a new player, but from my first day in EVE i started following your blog. I may not always agree with your thoughts or logic, but find your overall top-down view of EVE relatively unbiased and balanced. The most important for a CSM member is to look at the forest, not the individual leaf - and i hope you can do that.

You have my vote.

I fully support Ripard Teg for CSM 8. Many forget that there are places outside of sov null other than Jita, and people do live and frolic in them. Keeping each aspect of the game balanced and healthy is critical to the overall health of EVE. Highsec needs Nullsec to provide high end resources, and null sec relies on high sec to prove us with targets.

There are few who can address this balance better than Ripard Teg.

Ripard will make an excellent and effective CSM, and his horrific screams of existential angst when he discovers the true nature of what he's gotten himself into will be the icing on the bitter cupcake of victory.

As I said, ganking should require an equal order of magnitude risk. If you're going to gank a T1 hauler (say), then this should require either a small group of destroyers, or one to two cruisers, not a single destroyer. So, if you're going to be social about it, it's cheaper and easier. If you're going to be solo, it's more expensive and harder.

With a good pilot aboard, a Ruppy does 2400+ alpha on an 8-second cycle. A Thorax does 1400 on a 3-second cycle. For tougher targets, you break out a Tornado. A Rote ganker has very good success tanking a Tornado in Uedama long enough to get two cycles of about 11000 alpha and I don't begrudge him that in the slightest. AND he made billions in profit almost every time he went out. And he will again once he has a better chance of getting his loot out.

I want both for gankers to have to put relatively equal ISK at risk and I want them to have a better chance at getting their loot away from a successful gank. The latter keeps getting forgotten. Blink

This is a laundry list of win right here!

In general, I think missions should be more like incursions. Fewer, tougher rats, using nastier PvP-style tactics. Higher bounties. And rewards for group participation. To my mind, "Stop the Thief" (the one where you warp in directly on top of a single battleship that spawns a fleet to his location) is the closest to an ideal L4 mission. There aren't that many ships and you can do it solo... but is much easier, faster, and more rewarding if you bring a friend or two.

And as I keep saying on my blog, I think the loot table needs another looking at. It's been nerfed down too hard. Honestly, with today's ship and module prices, I don't see how anybody could make a living on missions as they are.

I wrote a post about this over the weekend. I are amused.

Pretty certain Two step and Seleene want me to win for the same reason.

Being selected for the CSM clearly makes you a sadist. Even more so than the average EVE player. Pirate

As one of the more eloquent and prolific commentators on the asylum we all visit I for one cannot wait for you to be handed the keys to your very own padded cell on the top floor.

You have my votes.

As a newer player, I'm still staring up EVE's famous learning curve, coming to grips with red tape and paranoia in corp recruitment (for example, EVE University rules run about 10 pages in MS Word) and learning to deal with what looks to be a rather tilted playing field. That's in addition to finding my place in the sandbox to begin with. Ganking in high-sec seems to get a lot of attention, but it's far from being my primary concern.

I understand that you're not running for junior game developer position. Still, given your game experience and your excellent series of blog posts on the state of the game - from "Conflict of self-interest" to "Fractal," - I would be curious to know what changes to newbie game you'd support.

Thanks, and best of luck with your CSM run; you have my vote just for being willing to ask tough questions.

Let's not get too hung up on ganking, that was just a convenient example. The same goes for running missions, mining, industry, what have you. I want to get down to the principle. What is punishment for solo play? How do you avoid it? Is it reasonable to have activities which are off-limits to solo players altogether? You seem to suggest "no" but I'm not sure if that's what you really mean.

Supported. Also hoping the CSM-playerbase communcation strategy gets revised with a flamethrower.

You got my vote, so long as you will be an activist and not an armchair quarterback Cool


1st remark) Eve Online is marketed as a persistent-world MMORPG, however I don't feel much persistence in New Eden as a capsuleer vs it's common natives, and frankly this is costing me the game's rpg feel (not the mmo feel however).

Sure as capsuleers we have eachother to play around with. But what about the rest of the galaxy:
I'm talking about our ship crews, player housing, character development (skill training and a very limited use of the reputation system is very basic), no / hardly any advanced advertisement of live events, only 5 epic arc's for questing, what faction building projects in FW, ship piloting simulation maybe Wing Commander style (test your fit out first, couple this by giving the launcher SiSi access), drug smuggling on stations.

However CCP is handling the enviroment rpg feel good, nice nebula, PI, autopilot showing you the way in space, landmarks, V3 textures, colliding asteroids and war barges for mercs soon™

2nd remark) When you will be elected and have stakeholder status as CSM member please also communicate to us openly how CCPgames as a company is doing by showing us it's Published financial statements and any notes it has attached to them.

Eve online is :

A) mining simulator B) glorified chatroom C) spreadsheets online

D) CCP Games Pay to Win at skill leveling, with instant gratification
