Hello fellow space-nerds,

I am the pilot formerly known as FistyMcBumBasher and I fly with TURN LEFT of The Camel Empire who are the Alliance Tournament XII winners. I would like your vote for CSM X. I am running because I love this game and would love to do my best to see it continue on the wonderful trend it has been on recently. To accomplish this goal I will talk and listen to you, the player base. I will listen and bring your concerns and ideas to ears of CCP devs whether they want to listen or not.

I feel qualified to represent you on the CSM because I have been playing on and off for a total of about 4 years now. During this time I have participated in the following aspects of Eve:


  • Small gang roaming through wormholes to every area of New Eden with Turn Left.
  • Large scale sovereignty warfare when I was in FA
  • Faction Warfare when Fweddit was still enrolled
  • PvP in 0.0 and low-sec with Agony Unleashed
  • New player training and FC'ing introductory roams with both Fweddit and Agony.
  • High-sec incursion running on an alt capable of getting into High-Security space.
  • Low-sec Piracy and tournament training with Calamitous-Intent.


I know that I do not have a fancy blog to link to, but if elected I will give CCP valuable insight into the life of a small gang player that roams in Low-Sec, 0.0, and Wormhole Space.

I fully endorse this person and/or service.

Seriously, how could anyone not vote for this handsome bearded gentleman, covered in furs and standing next to a wolf?
Great dude, and would certainly make for an excellent CSM.

Catch me in game, or pm your comms info and I can come by to chat.

Let me turn that around and ask you what you would like me to do? I am not skilled enough to be a game designer, so I won't even try that. But I can listen to what you have to say.

RLML's were nerfed a little bit too hard, HML's need either an application or range buff since they are currently pretty useless for pvp purposes.

Go Fisty! Go Fisty! Go Fisty!


The glorious Camel Empire needs to have his representative in the CSM to strengthen the influence of small gang pvp in EvE and cater to the few people worthy of the only true way of exploding ships in space.

In all seriousness tho: this guy is an awesome dude and will do a lot of good work for EvE.

First of all, how do I pronounce your new name? The English or the French way?

Secondly, what do you think is the most important issue facing the playerbase today, and how do you believe it should be addressed?

1. Pronounce my name whichever way is easiest for you.

2. That is a difficult question because each player plays the game differently, so each player has their own 'most important' issue that they want addressed. Industrialists will have much different issues than Wormhole roaming PvP'ers, who in turn play the game differently from Incursion runners.

But if I had to chose one, I would say that new player retention is the most important issue facing the playerbase today. Improving this would affect ALL aspects of New Eden for the better. Giving us more sand for this sandbox.

For one example I will take small gang pvp as an example. Over the last few weeks, I have been running a chat channel called 'pvp and piracy help' whose main goal is to get new players started down the life of a pvp'er. We talk with them, answer questions, and try to help them get a good understanding of the game mechanics. A lot of the players I talk to have very little knowledge, but are very eager to go out and learn. Many have been recruited by FW corps that do not explain the mechanics or drawbacks of participating in FW. Others are recruited by 0.0 corporations that say 'move all your stuff out to our system' without explaining the mechanics of bubbles, clones, or bookmarks. It would be nice if there was a default chat channel they could go to if interested in getting into learning the basics of PvP. There are channels for Ratting and Real Estate, but not for PvP

New player retention is indeed an issue facing Eve so to expand on that I have a few questions. The first experience of many new players is the recruitment efforts of highsec corps near the starter system. While many of these corps mean well, a large fraction of them are run by CEO's with an incomplete understanding of Eve mechanics, who let's face it, run less-than-stellar organizations that are not capable of properly supporting and teaching new players about the game. New players ending up in these lackluster corporations will have a more frustrating initial experience in the game than if they ended up in a better corporation, and might quit the game altogether.

This problem is set to become worse with the recent changes allowing the spamming of corporation invitations, and the proposed removal of intra-corp agression in highsec which will remove a major disincentive to "farm" new players for income (that is the possibility of highsec awoxing).

With that in mind, I have three questions:

1) What do you think the best approach would be to get new players into quality corporations with the real interest and capability to train new players, not just in highsec, but also in low, null and wormhole space?

2) Do you agree with the proposed removal of intra-corp aggression in highsec?

3) Do you think that a "social corp" mechanism - that is a new tier of corporation that is immune to wardecs and awoxing, but has none of the current advantages of a player corporation is a good idea to increase new player retention?

Thanks for throwing your hat in the ring.

Of late, there's been a huge push by both CCP and by player corps and alliances to respond to the huge wave of new players that have come in as a result of the "This is EVE" promotional video. As a veteran of new player friendly alliances (AGONY in particular), do you think there's a way to sustain this level of attention and helpfulness? It seems to have been able to get new players right into the heart of the game--almost immediately in the case of Brave Newbies--and that can only be good. But can it be sustained?

Improving corporations is a good start, and I am anxiously waiting to see what CCP will do with that. There will always be 'non quality' corporations that actively recruit new players, there is nothing you can or should do about that in a sandbox. But information for new players is extremely important, increasing the amount of game knowledge gained from the New Player Experience. The tutorial needs to constantly be improved and updated. I would personally LOVE to have a new pvp tutorial for new players that sends them out into Low-Sec or 0.0 to get fights.

High sec intra-corp aggression is mostly used as a griefing mechanic. If you want to **** over your corporation there are still plenty of ways to do it. If you want to practice pvp then you can duel a corp mate.

A social corp mechanism would just be abused to avoid high-sec wars. I have done incursions and the community seems to function fine even though many of the players who fly with bling are wardecced.

Yes, it most definitely can. A lot of the time in Eve, the more players that you have, the stronger you are. So it is smart play to make sure you always have a steady recruitment of fresh blood.

Hi Fisty

What is your position on fighter assignment? For example a Nyx assigns fighters from the edge of a POS to a T1 frigate which is somewhere else in the system.

with kind regards

Hi Carlos, thanks for the question

I do not view fighters assigned from off-grid as good gameplay. Why should a character be able to apply dps from the edge of a pos shield anywhere in system? Now that fighters are affected by drone damage, speed, and tracking mods, this has been abused and it's use will only increase. I am of the opinion that fighters should now function similarly to normal drones. This would force the carrier pilots to be on grid to unleash the damage of their drones.

If anyone is interested, Carlos filmed a video of a typical engagement for us with some nice commentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FC3yhKwVq8&list=PLRkxP-7p7t09UJ9y-Kb77KF5YZZlCO_vh

Is your campaign based on just small group roams and being a representative of Camel? You know that most of CSM have to pay for themselves to go to Iceland now?

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.
