Greetings Capsuleers,

My name is Tora Bushido (@blowfish70) and I am running for CSM X. My main focus will be on a new high-sec for all of New Eden’s citizens. Not just for the ‘good’ or ’bad’ guys, but a new fun high-sec for all of us! And yes, I know there are many more capsuleers outside of high-sec, who want their voice to be heard too. But I don’t want to be one of those CSM’s, who hasn't been in a certain part of space for ages and still thinks he knows everything about it. Eve changes fast and your knowledge gets outdated quickly if you don’t keep up. So, I would rather focus on the area I’ve been living in the last few years. If you want to read what I’ve done so far in Eve, read the fun written player profile by Feyd. Besides my WH background and current high-sec experience, I am also still active in null-sec on my alts.

Been active 24/7 in Eve since 2010. I know it’s just a game, but it’s also my passion. I care about the game and want to see it going on for at least another 10 years. It’s easy to complain about ‘bad’ things from the sideline, but I rather be active myself and try to find solutions for problems. Do I know it all, hell no! But I am the kind of guy who really listens to players and finds common grounds to build upon. I can analyze problems very fast and can break things down to the base of it. Simple is often the best solution.

Most of you probably know me as the alliance leader of The Marmite Collective, a group of like minded guys who just enjoy shooting things. In Marmites we don’t do politics. If you want to have a good time and you’ve got what it takes, you’re welcome. Because of this policy we’ve got good relations with a lot of alliances, corps and players all over Eve. Most of us don’t take things to personal and just enjoy the game as we see fit. If it is needed for the game, I will also accept things that might not be in the best interest of my own alliance. We’re just a small part of a greater Eve.

Each area of space has its own challenges. The ideas below are not the basis for my Campaign, but to act as a spark plug for getting to the down and dirty of these kind of issues. While this approach might turn the stomachs of many… If one can’t identify the down and dirty from the player base, then what good is the CSM. I’m here to listen and I want more of your ideas! So let’s get down to business.

Ganking in high-sec
I think ganking is a part of Eve and I want it to stay, but we need to add something new. Right now it’s to easy to warp out of a station, gank something, warp your pod back to station and wait till the timer runs out.

THE HIDEOUT – A Mobile Deployable Unit that shadows Criminal Targets from Concord. While of course Criminals will lose their ships, and they can’t undock in another ship, they could still undock in a Pod and warp to this 15km Area to hide in new ships. The Hideout will also tick down the timer twice as fast while they are in range and in a ship. What this does is provide opportunities for Anti Ganker movements to hunt Gankers who may find this unit useful to quicken their return to another gank.

AFK, while in Space, on the same grid (high-sec)
If you’re logged in and undocked, I think you should also be active behind the keyboard. Players should press a notification button every x minutes if they are still on the same grid in space. One of the reasons I think people go AFK while mining, is because it’s boring to watch the screen while doing so. I want to add a mini game for the miners. What kind, you tell me. I want this only for high-sec, as in the other parts of Eve you've got a way higher risk of dieing because of it.

War decs
The war dec system needs to change. To many new corps in high-sec are destroyed by war decs, which is bad for keeping people motivated to stay in high-sec or even in Eve itself. Once they are a bit bigger (25+), they at least have a chance fighting. High-sec isn’t for pussies, so let’s not do more then really needed or we will nerf the game to death. I would suggest, double the war dec costs for the first group (up to 50 players). and let the rest as it is. Making the costs go from 50M to 100M might not seem much, but I can tell you from experience it’s a lot when you have so many wars running as we have or when you are a small griefer corp. I would be ok if this raise is only for corps more then for example 50 players. This way the smaller, less rich, doing less damage corps, can still do their thing.

Social Corp/ NPC
You shouldn't be able to stay longer then 2-3 months in a NPC corp. Players should be able to create small social corps with max 10 players in it, which can’t be war decced (can still be ganked). But they also can’t own a pos, poco or future structure and they can’t war dec someone else. This might look bad, as they can freely do anything they want, but if you look at it more closely, they can still do the same things as they could do in an NPC corp. Only this way they have the chance to build up a corp. See it as a stage between NPC and a corp. The social corps do need to pay an X amount of tax or it will just become another tax/war avoiding corp.

Incursions
Not sure if there are current issues. If so, mail me.

Remember, changes are made by taking small steps. Don't start running before you can walk or you will drop on the floor,

Industry
Increase the agility of T2 freighters, so it’s easier to haul cargo and harder for gankers to keep them bumped. Create a multi sell option (select what you want, see the total and decide to buy or not). Create a multi contract option, so it's easier for example to contract BPC's (got 100 BPC's, select them all, create contract for public per x bpc's for price y).

The last few patches have already improved industry a lot I think.

Dont nerf Eve to death
Sometimes nerfs are needed, but let's not kill Eve with to many. If I think Eve is getting to nerfed, I will bring in more darkness. If it's to dark, shine more light. And to keep this fun for the entire community, I talk and listen to people. Even to people I personally do not like.

Dreads
I want Dreads back in high-sec for more large pos fights and it will create a better market for them.

Contacts
I want an export and import contact lists function. Or even better, make something similar as the overview. Drag contacts to link, other character clicks it and has the same contacts (standings, etc).

Graphical User Interface
I want to create a better GUI for you capsuleers. I am not happy with the new GUI colors, icons, etc. We need more import/export options and long time bugs should be fixed!

Implants from corpses
An Autopsy Skill that gives you a chance of recovering implants from corpses.

Faction Police
I wouldn’t be against removing the faction police, so we would see more players with -5 or lower in high-sec. Interaction between high-sec and any other part of Eve can only be good. It also shows players from high-sec that there is more then just high-sec (where most start in). There are enough players in high-sec to still shoot them, so I don’t really see the need for the police.

Unaccessible High-sec Stations for Pirates
Making high-sec stations unaccessible for pirates is not something I would support right now, unless someone could convince me why it’s really good idea.

Concord offices
I want a Concord office in every low-sec system. I hope this will attract more high-sec players to low-sec, as it's easier to buy your security status back this way.

Making decisions as a CSM should not be about feelings, but facts.

For people who think I will turn high-sec in to a nerfed Wow Disneyland, NEVER ! Evil


The following players I would endorse for CSM X (random order) :

* Bobmon
* Xander Phoena
* Corebloodbrothers
* Corbexx
* Sabriz
* Manfred Sideous

As you are someone that has had some stuff to do with wardecs, I'd be very interested in hearing your opinions on how War in Eve can be transformed into something that is fulfilling for all participants... especially those of us languishing in High Sec!

Tora is practically a brand name in merc business. He knows his stuff. If you care at all for war decs or general merc game-play you should vote for him.

EDIT: Unless Tora either clears up his stance on some of the things he's mentioned, or changes his tune, he's lost my support. Sorry Tora. Can't vote for you based on some of the things you've said in this thread.

Hi Tora,

A serious question that I would love to hear your perspective on:

Do you have any specific ideas you would be willing to share on how to improve the current war dec dodging method? Or perhaps, do you see it as an issue that should be addressed? If not why?

Thanks for you time!

Thanks Sabriz.

Tengu : Right now I am collecting questions on high-sec and on the user interface. As they will be my prio's. This weekend I'll start writing a long post with questions and answers. Including yours.

@All : As CSM my Engrish will stay the same. This is to support the rest of the non native English speakers. Blink

I want to find solutions for the entire high-sec community. Not just the "bad" or "Good" guys.

Hey Tora Good luck running!


A few questions I have to ask.

Will you be making a push to flush out the Wardeccing system? Such as giving defending corps more reason to fight, so on and so forth? A lot of EVE players (More so new ones) seem to think the Wardec's are imbalanced, do you agree? What are your current idea's on this topic?

Will you work on making Highsec corps, more than social club as they are for the most part now? If so how?

What are your opinions on NPE and if you could make changes what would you change?

EDIT: Another question, with the recent CSM Summit there was a scare about CCP taking about the ability to commit AWOX. How do you feel about the subject? Would you change it, Remove it, or keep it as it currently is?

Both would work. I have made myself a list with questions people have and suggestions how they think we can improve it.

@Lanctharus Onzo : That would be nice, but give me a week or so. I need top get things properly on paper first. I always think before I speak. And I listen to your podcast all the time, so I knew you were Blink

@Valkin Mordirc : I will add those questions to the post I am working on. Short version : 100% remove no, reduce and protect where needed yes.

I have removed a rule breaking post.

The Rules:
5. Trolling is prohibited.

Trolling is a defined as a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting other players in an attempt to incite retaliation or an emotional response. Posts of this nature are disruptive, often abusive and do not contribute to the sense of community that CCP promote.

My experience with Tora is probably a bit better than most here.

When he told us he was running for CSM I was abit surprised but in both a good and bad way.

The bad: Marmite would suffer when Tora is busy doing CSM stuffz. (you could consider me being abit selfish here)

The good: I couldn't think of hand on heart a better person to help change HS.

He is 100% the best man for the job.

Good luck buddy you get my vote

It seems a lot of people join corps even when it isn't in their best interest.

What is your opinion on a "social only" corp being implemented into eve(no pocos, hangers or poses, but can't be wardecced)?
