So I'm not going to li...

Hang on, that was last year.

Let's keep this short. One year ago I ran for CSM8, not, as with many, on a platform of any specific promises, but to take CCP up on their promise to work more closely with the CSM and better the game as a whole. Over 14,000 of you took me up on that, at least ten thousand ranked me highly enough to send me off to iceland a few times - both numbers far in excess of what I received from my bloc support. And so I went, and boy did CCP live up to their promise. Close interaction with Team 5-0 was soon followed by many of the other teams and had me working my ass off. I continue to do so as the Summer expansion comes together. Now campaign season is upon us, and once again I'm back to ask for your support.

As with last year I'm going to eschew listing off specific positions - I'd be here writing all night. And besides, I'm here asking for your support; I'd much rather answer your questions, so ask away. Beyond the forum thread, I'm on twitter as @mynnna_eve and of course can be reached by evemail - just don't forget the third 'n'.

Let's do this Cool

grr goons, you'll probably be my top vote again this year though. glad to see you're running again to be honest.
#3 - 2014-02-23 10:29:00 UTC
Grrr goons.

Seriously though, you could write a few articles in the TMC.

Objective sighted. Target locked. Lasers activated. Pew-pew-pew. Die roid..., DIE!

It is good to know that CCP might actually live up to their promises and excellence hype, like any good political party if they can achieve up to %50 of their promises without kissing babies (bloc powers :) to much, than they do their jobs we pay them for well enough I suppose.

you asked for a question: how many goons does it take to screw in a lightbulb ? Cool

for something a little more serious: wth is the nestor used for other then a pimp mobile ?

PS: to all active CSM 8 members, thank you for your contribution, reading your blogs and seeing the work done was very nice.

Eve online is :

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

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

I personally feel CSM8 did a great job and no doubt Mynnna was a huge part of that. Mynnna will be on my ballot for all his hard work over the past 10 months.

My hard drive is littered with false starts over the past several months. It winds up being alarmingly difficult to write the sort of lofty 'this is how I'd fix things' game mechanics posts without feeling like you're letting what you know from discussions with CCP color things, if not outright leak things, so I've always wound up erring on the side of caution and binning them. Oops

138, but they'll lose tackle and it'll cyno out before reinforcements arrive.

It seems to be getting a little use in lowsec but the emphasis there should definitely be on 'little.' I'd argued it needed something extra (such as a jump drive) even to just be a compelling option for its implied PvE role, but unfortunately no dice at the time. I do have hope that adding drops as an extra means to supply it will bring the cost down on all three SoE ships and encourage people to find creative ways to use them, but if not I definitely want to take Rise up on the isimplied opportunity for more change if the hull remains underused.

Thanks! And in all seriousness, we'll miss your interviews this time around. But we all know you're really running to get out of doing them anyway. Blink

That you can't lie speaks well to your quest for a seat on the council.

Speaking personally, my voting habits are strongly influenced by the writings and similar material published by candidates. You're one of the people that I'd like to hear more from.

If grand sweeping proclamations seem difficult to write from behind the NDA, don't do that. You don't necessarily need to offer packaged solutions outright; we know that you aren't in a position to directly implement your ideas. Instead, discuss things... write about your opinions and philosophy regarding how you feel things should work, explain why you have problems with those aspect of the game you find problematic, and generally explain your intentions. After all, you're obviously running for a reason... let us know what that reason is!

Mynnna is deeply knowledgable in the industrial and economic aspect of the game, and we've relied heavily on his expertise in the relevant discussions with CCP - but I was not aware that he is also fluent in medium ship combat as well. He's more than pulled his weight there.

Mynnna brings facts and analysis to the table (as one might expect, I suppose), and his data driven approach has been extremely useful for the rest of the CSM.

I said in his election thread for CSM8 that he deserved a spot to show what he could do.

He's earned a spot in CSM9 to build on what he's done.

Many will say that he doesn't need independent votes because of his in-game affiliation. Well if you want to put him a little lower down on your ballot for that reason, so be it. But do put him on there.

"Just remember later that I warned against any change to jump ranges or fatigue. You earned whats coming."

This is an excellent point. While it'd still be easy to write myself into corners, I'll have to go over some of my half finished work and see what I can do with it. Smile

How do you feel about the teleportation mechanics?

I feel that they're only part of a bigger picture and so while many, perhaps even all, likely need to be reigned in to one degree or another, considering them in isolation from that bigger picture is folly. I can probably elaborate a bit when I'm not on my lunch break, if you like.

I agree. They are all intertwined. Makes answering only a specific part difficult. How about something a bit different.

EVE is very much about building sand castles and knocking them over. The sandbox. While knocking them down is amazing, the satisfaction is limited to how impressive the sand castles can be. So can you talk a bit how you envision what can be added and improved on to allow players to make amazing sand castles in EVE?

That's basically a question with infinite answers, really, which feels like a cop-out but is true. Start thinking "small" (in that the basic mechanics are there already) and imagine giant industry yards built from networks of personal (or corp) deployables. But they're totally deployable structures and not modular pos, ok, it's an important distinction even though I can't actually delineate the difference. Or think smaller and we've got the ESS already, the first real implementation of farms & fields in awhile (or ever) - no reason we can't have itty bitty sand castles in the form of similar types of mechanics for other activities. Destructible stations, someday, maybe.

And then we can wander off into the unknown. Seagull has talked in the past about the idea of colonization and her presentation has always had strong hints (like a freakin' picture of one) of player built gates off into... who knows where. We already build stations which have lost some (most (all)) of their "ooh" factor. Why not a dyson sphere or similar mega-structure? Sure perhaps it offers no significant advantages over a normal station, but who cares it owns. Monuments, perhaps? Safe to say a shootable statue of Mittani in VFK would be a bit of a content creator, yeah? Maybe the ability to, by doing "things", name planets or even whole systems?

I'm obviously rambling a bit, and part of that's because it's late and I'm just throwing words at the screen, but as far as 'epic sandcastles' go there are so many different ways you could go with it that would appeal to so many different kinds of people that it defies any easy answer... which of course makes it a fun topic to brainstorm on.

Hi Mynnna

I'm probably going to ask all CSM8 incumbents who are running for CSM9 this, so but here it is for you...

What do you feel you brought to the CSM8 table that others did not?

What was your finest achievement ( that you can tell us about now) on CSM8?

You know that's a startlingly hard question to answer. Maybe I'm just bad at talking myself up. Malcanis' endorsement was spot on though - I'm almost inevitably the first to dive into the numbers when CCP brings something to us, whether it's ship balancing, new deployables, or, well, something else entirely.

Yes, that was the sound of that answer stopping short of smacking facefirst into the NDA. Oops

As to achievements... of things I can talk about, the ESS is the first thing that comes to mind of 'something I'm really pleased with'. Bit of a rough initial announcement, but out of that came the springboard to push for the adjustments that brought it into its final form. And for all that people still don't like it (and they're out there!) it's one of the first real implementations of the concept of 'farms & fields', and that's pretty neat.
