Greeting capsuleers of New Eden,

I am running for the first time in the election for CSM XII.

Let me tell you a bit about myself and a bit of my history in New Eden.

I am 20 years old and I am an Air Traffic Controller in the U.S Army, I have lived in Phoenix Arizona for about 17 years. I started playing EVE a few months before I enlisted, where I had joined a small C3 Pulsar Wormhole corp and learned the basics about wormhole life. After Basic Training I really got into EVE while I was in school for my MOS (Military Occupational Specialty). During my time at school I had accumulated 4 accounts, and was part of 2 alliances (Serenity Initiatve and TEST Alliance) and I got into trading toons for ISK. Eventually I made enough ISK to get to where I am today, with 6 accounts and about 10 toons each with a different specialty. After school I had about 4 months before I deployed overseas. Which during all of our pre-deployment training; the I-10 Shooter was around and I had to drive that same route 2 times a day to get where I needed to be, luckily I never got shot :)
From that point I deployed and I pretty much sat around doing nothing 95% of the time, and I joined DARKNESS and helped in WWB, a few weeks into WWB my corp left DARKNESS and went to I N F A M O U S, and I attempted to create my own WH corp and got evicted before our Astrahus could finish it's "after anchoring repair cycle" and so I was taken in to MCAV, which is where I have been since then. Since most of my accounts have skilled miners I have left WH Space, because Ore sites are not plausible or profitable in W-Space.

First and foremost; I want to bring up some ideas for CSM.

  • I want to help make WH space great again! We all know that WH space needs a healthy population of capsuleers moving in, and I want to help make that happen.
  • Help make WH space not boring (This includes the possibility of new sites, better escalations, and a new player influx)

  • Mining in W-Space is somewhat lacking... I want to help make it better for potential WH mining corps. ( I have 4 Hulks and an Orca and can mine better in nullsec)
  • We all know C6's are pretty much dead, I am going to try my hardest to make C6 space attractive.


  • More bulletins will be added as my campaign progresses

    Help me Help you!
    Please feel free to contact me with any questions and I will be more than happy to answer them!

    A few questions:
    "I want to help make WH space great again! We all know that WH space needs a healthy population of capsuleers moving in, and I want to help make that happen.
    Help make WH space not boring (This includes the possibility of new sites, better escalations, and a new player influx)"

    These points are pretty vague and don't really entail knowledge of the issues with W-Space. Can you add some more specifics on how you would intend to interface with CCP to do stuff like this?

    "Mining in W-Space is somewhat lacking... I want to help make it better for potential WH mining corps. ( I have 4 Hulks and an Orca and can mine better in nullsec)
    We all know C6's are pretty much dead, I am going to try my hardest to make C6 space attractive."

    Same for these, actually. I would recommend expanding on your ideas otherwise you'll get these 2 questions all the time, and it saves you the trouble.


    As someone who lives in C6 space (albeit on alts), I do think that making C6 space "great again" to a W-Space player perspective is not as easy as it seems. In Tweetfleet, the number one thing people have discusses is adding dual statics to C6s. It would likely cause a mass exodus of C5 corps though. Why live in C5 with a single static, and trashed site respawn rates if everyone is in C6? I'd like your input.


    Also, you haven't addressed the issue with Z142 nullsec holes in C5 space being closed but still being visually "open". Do you plan on interfacing with CCP to try and get this bug fixed?

    This suggests you think wspace currently is not that great. Can you give a more concrete description on what you think is lacking, and what are your own thoughts on how to actually make it great again!

    Please be concrete!! We understand you'll want feedback but we need to know that you can identify problems corrently on your own as being on the CSM, you will likely have to look at issues under the NDA and cannot ask for any community feedback.

  • This makes it sound like you want to build a wall and lie to us.

    What was great in the past and is lacking now?

    I appreciate the fact you want to improve WH space, but I am curious how much time you have actually lived in one. From your post it sound like you are a NS guy who is just interested in wormholes.

    I echo the previous posters that I would like to hear more of your ideas with details.

    Sorry for the late reply; I have been extremely busy packing up to head back home and I haven't had much time to myself lately.

    I have recently left MCAV due to issues I had with Ore sites in W-Space; as well as a new capital I have acquired. Let me say first that I still have intentions to help improve W-Space; and I may someday return.

    Though, that is not the only thing that I want to focus on.

    Now, let's be honest; W-Space is not nearly what it used to be; and it will never be the same as it once used to be.

    I have 2 focus points for W-Space.

    1. Ore Sites; or the lack thereof.
    2. Bringing new players to W-Space

    I'll start with mining in W-Space

    1. Generic Ore
    2. No guarantee of an Ore site
    3. No safety (Unless you have a Rorq; see #4)
    4. Mass on a hole if using a Rorq (Or inability to use Rorq in static because the hole is not large enough)

    Nullsec

    1. Plethora of better Ore
    2. Guaranteed Ore no matter what ie Anoms or Asteroid Belts
    3. System Cyno Jam, Bubbles on Gate, Easy to use Rorq
    4. ??? Profit?

    I'd like to see better Ore in W-Space, sites should also respawn if left untouched for 1-2 Days.

    Now; I know that the CSM are not Devs, and they only bridge the gap between the player base, and CCP.
    I know these issues were brought up to a couple of CSM members during a recent townhall, and it would be nice to bring it up with CCP. I personally asked about seeing roaming NPC Miners, but unfortunately it is not possible for W-Space.

    Bringing new players, and new corporations to W-Space. I believe that making changes to the industry side of W-Space would bring in some industry based corporations.
    Keeping in mind that I have not played through the entire NPE, but as far as I know there is no part of W-Space in it. It would be great to see a "further along" part of the NPE that touches base with wormhole space and lets these new players know that living in wormholes is actually a thing.


    Bloemkoolsaus ,

    Please be concrete!! We understand you'll want feedback but we need to know that you can identify problems corrently on your own as being on the CSM, you will likely have to look at issues under the NDA and cannot ask for any community feedback."

    I am well aware of having to keep certain things secret, that is one benefits to being in the military ;)

    Timoxa Zero,

    "Also, you haven't addressed the issue with Z142 nullsec holes in C5 space being closed but still being visually "open". Do you plan on interfacing with CCP to try and get this bug fixed?"

    I have not yet replicated this issue, as I have found a few Z142 Null holes in static C5's and have not yet had any issues.
    If you encounter this problem again please submit a bug report and send me a mail to confirm that this is still happening.

    Edward Harris,

    "This makes it sound like you want to build a wall and lie to us."

    Ya got me! :)
    See above^

    Aaril,

    "I appreciate the fact you want to improve WH space, but I am curious how much time you have actually lived in one. From your post it sound like you are a NS guy who is just interested in wormholes."

    I have been in and out of wormholes since 2014 up until about half a year ago; when I joined MCAV and learned in detail a lot more about W-Space, Diplomatics, etc.

    If anyone has any more questions, please send me a mail in-game!

    Man you joined Darkness the only thing you're still doing is making yourself an embarrassment.

    Leaving a w-space corp and moving to nullsec over "ore site issues" and acquiring a "new capital" certainly sounds like someone with the experience required to sit on the CSM.

    Frankly, this is EVE. And I have the freedom to go and do whatever I please.

    If you dislike this so much maybe you should try to run for CSM.

    I had too many subbed accounts lying around being useless because they were almost fully skilled miners; To add on to that most known corps won't let you just bring 1 toon into their group that can only fly FAX and up. But then again you may not know that because HK have a lot of connections.
