It is great to have you on the race Corby. I have known Corbexx for years and we often have heated talks about CSM and wspace mechanics.

Your sir will definatelly be on my ballot.

Burn the land and boil the sea You can't take the sky from me

Affirmative.

Can you give some examples? :)

Why is "Wormhole Stabilizers" a bad idea?

I would think it is a good idea!

Am I wrong for thinking that?

I think 99% of wormhole space will agree with me here it's a terrible idea.

This is maybe an extreme case. You "stabilize" the wormhole take in 50 dread's, 10 carriers and a support fleet. You can then reinforce everything really fast. You come home unstabilize the wormhole and repeat. Two days later your very likely to find a wormhole you have reinforced (atleast in C6 space) and you can then clear that system out.

Invasions are hard work, having stabilizers makes it far to easy to do this.

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?


I'd want to sit down and speak to them about it.

As a member of NOHO, I often take part in our "Bhaals Deep™" ops where we take a couple caps and a support fleet in to other wormholers home system. I think I can safely say we do this more than any other group. We've often facing 9 or more caps, with sometimes upwards of 6 dreads.

We've won some of these and lost some. The ones we have lost have never been due to dread blapping. Six month to a year ago I did think it was a issue, there is even posts on the wormhole section where I have said this. The recent tracking nerf helped and I think totally justified (especially to the Moros). But now with a decent fleet comp and fittings, people knowing what to do, I don't think its as big a issue as some think.

If your not ready for it, you can sure be in for a surprise. It's alot easier to say "hey dreads blapping is a issue" rather than "hey I just MWD'd by prot,bhaal, etc straight at that Moros and died horribly, cos I made a poor choice" I'm not saying people who have lost stuff is always due to this, but you would be surprised how many times people do that or just sit still and don't move.

So, I'd speak to them about it but I'd want to keep them how it is now. The dread tracking nerf I think was needed at the time, I don't think it needs any more now.

Hope that answers your question.

Greetings.

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

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.


I am happy to see a candidate of your caliber running, and you have my utmost respect for stepping in; I think more people should make their own options when they don't like the ones they have been given. Bravo!

What about a deployable that could extend or reduce the life of a wormhole?

If you want to reduce the life of a wormhole you can just collapse it, so I don't see a need for that module at all.
I guess to extend the life of a wormhole might be useful if you had a handy hisec wormhole you wanted left open that was end of life. But I still don't think its really needed at all. Part of wormhole space is that your routes change and you only have so much control on that.

Corbexx, in your OP you state you were unimpressed with the other canidates. What was it that didn't impress and why are you a better choice than them?

No trolling please

True, but this would give more control over that.

For reducing lifespan, for example, you would place 2 deployable structures that would kill it off faster then armor HACS.

Extending life would work the same. Obviously in reverse!

How fast do you want these things to reduce the life of a wormhole? If you know what your doing you can close wormholes really fast. Ok maybe not as fast as Shadoo saying armour hacs. But alot faster than using armour hacs.

I still really don't think there is any need for them.

Ok so guess this was going to come up sooner or later.

Proclus Pretty decent, but I worry about his past trolling putting people off.

Karen Is just to inexperienced.

Asayanami Seems to be far to concerned over videos, and I won't mention about corp bookmarks.

Why vote for me, from my OP.

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.

The only thing I see is the forum trolling bit. Sure, he has done some of that. So have I. However, it shouldn't factor into someones ability to the job at all.

Lastly, trolling or otherwise, I would prefer to have someone running who was active on the forums rather than someone who rarely ever posted until they decided to run for CSM.

No trolling please

It might not factor in to how he would relate to CCP, but would all those people he has trolled or whatever feel like they could come to him with issues they might have? If he was the only candidate running, would some of those he trolled not vote at all?

Let me clarify my post. I didn't mean that as an attack on you. I meant it towards the handful of people who think trolling is the worst thing ever in life, and no one smart trolls, etc..

No trolling please

I guess I am in a boat all alone, because I've had many people convo me about running, all while mentioning I was an a**hole for trolling. P
