Hi hello.

if you dont know me. i am rhiload, maker of the zkill guides over on youtube.

Let's be real, you are not here to read a book on what i want from the CSM and every piece of information about me, so ill keep it short to save ourselves time

My past
I joined the game in 2012, i got into pvp 1 month after playing the game and i haven't looked back since, I joined a null pirate corp for a short while then joined TURN LEFT (camel) (low-sec thera pvp) and League of unaligned master pilots (null-sec sovereignty pvp) where i now reside. if you really want the nitty gritty, please feel free to message me

Who I am
First and foremost I am a video content creator making videos for people to enjoy. (you most likely know me from the zkill guides)
I am a low-sec and null pvper, but mostly reside in low-sec (i often use JC a lot to move around)
I very occasionally stream on twitch.
I commentated EVE_NT AT stream for the first weekend
I am a commentator for EVE_NT tournament

my campaign
A voice for content creators however big or small.
from the smallest of twitch streamers, to as large as channel zarvox
i also feel i represent small gang PvP in null and low-sec and ship balance is very high on my priority list (i mean, my zkill guides are practically strengths and weaknesses of a certain ship, despite how memey they are)


TLDR
  • low-sec small gang pvper
  • content creator
  • video maker
  • wingspan/mr hyde 2.0
  • avid tournament fan and competitor

  • if you wish to contact me, please message me or my alt planet 6 :)
    alternatively you can contact me over on twitter @rhiloadJRW, tweetfleet slack or youtube

    As an outgoing member of CSM 11 who, along with Gorski, primarily focused on mechanics, balance, and small gang/solo issues, I must voice my strong opposition to the candidacy of rhiload, and urge those voters who care about these issues to instead back Suitonia, who is vastly more experienced and qualified, to fulfil this role on CSM 12. With the reduction in the number of CSM seats this year from 14 to 10, it is important that 'non-bloc' entities like the small gang/solo community further concentrate their top votes behind serious candidates that can bring a depth of understanding and experience to CCP on these topics, rather than wasting them on charlatans such as rhiload.

    The success and popularity of rhiload's meme video series 'Zkill Guides' this year is undoubtedly impressive and has at long last brought a particular style of comedy video popular in other games to EVE. However, this success should not be misinterpreted as an indicator of his knowledge or experience on the topics of balance and small gang/solo PVP, but rather just as a showing of his ability to entertain and satirise. Unfortunately for him, neither of these skills are valuable or necessary in the role of a CSM member and would actually would detract from the hard work CSM 11 did to restore productive and serious relations with CCP by trivialising important discussions on balance topics.

    Despite his comparisons to me in regards to garnering a CSM candidacy backing from videomaking success, I respectfully disagree with this false equivalency. I would instead draw comparisons between rhiload and CSM 10 member WingspannTT (Chance Ravinne) who demonstrated how youtube popularity without any substance to back it up, makes for a hollow and useless CSM member. Although I certainly encourage his continued content creation which brings a smile to many-an-EVE player, I want to warn prospective voters on the dangers of letting rhiload's comedic success propel him above his station.

    Having spent many hours and days over the past year working with CCP to have game balance taken as an issue seriously, I cannot in good conscious allow an EVE youtube comedian to get away with exploiting his recent popularity to masquerade as an expert on a topic he is not qualified to speak on.


    *I understand that rhiload may take this as a personal insult, however, I only voice this opposition because I care about this game and these topics, and have too much respect for the CSM-CCP relationship to allow a meme candidate to detract from the serious work of the council. I do not know him personally and am sure he's a nice person and dedicated player.

    So vote for a goon as a non-block entity? Did you fall on your head?

    I've flown with Rhiload in last years AT and although he might not be a master of game mechanics he still is a reasonable guy and knows his stuff (See his commentary work in AT).
    Not everyone in eve is concerned with the intricacies of the game and the main problem with the CSM seems that it is dominated by huge power blocks and often the smaller groups get lost in the crowd. I feel Rhiload being in a small gang focused group like TL he maybe in a better position to understand and listen to the feelings of smaller groups in eve right now.

    Thank you Mr. Grappler. The game is still very unbalanced. It's time for someone who cares about small ships, too. And I mean all small ships and not only the Kestrel.

    Hi hyde, congrats on the nearly 10k subs.

    I see that you feel that i am not up to the task and or feel disheartened about me running for the csm. but that's a valid concern , so let's get into shall we.

    I am no expert in game mechanics and balance issues in this game, I dont even say that in my forum post so where did you get that? I feel if both suitonia and myself was part of the CSM, both of us can bounce feedback from the devs on how/why this xyz is op/not op. there is no doubt that suitonia is a much stronger candidate than myself in terms of game balance and mechanics, but I am not fully running for that position. (i even commentated the first weekend of the AT, i dont know anything about balance or ships)

    I am running for a platform of low-security, I reside here and so its my best interest to keep this area healthy, I am not just running on balance and game design alone. you may take me for a joke, because of the videos i make, and that is a perfectly fine statement to make, in fact I want people to question this, how will people know I am taking the CSM seriously? the videos I make point out the strengths, weaknesses, piloting tactics and fitting all in one, yes, they have an incredible amount of memes in them, but it takes knowledge of the game and ship design to actually make the video in the first place. Ive helped people get into pvp, new and old, I give them fittings, tactics and other helpful suggestions for them, I commentate EVE_NT, i've commentated the first weekend for AT 14, if this is not getting involved or not taking what I do seriously, then i dont know.

    Im here to give the little guy a voice to, small gang groups such as TL and various thera groups need someone to step up, gorski is currently not running and i would be worried for said groups to not have a representative in the CSM, if there are, then more the merrier.

    You have every right to remain disgruntled and have opinion about me, in fact it's good to have opposition to a candidate, but I guarantee you, if I DO get voted on the CSM, I will prove you wrong.

    Wannabee "atsf from wows", without the torpedobeat flavor, would not vote.
    Can't even follow the basic rule: "We are not cheap captain" and don't have a monocle.

    Should retract and go back to farming the USS Missouri Tier IX premium ship.

    Seriously Hyde? Useless CSM member? I think if you take a step back and consider that literally a third of CSM X quit, boycotted CSM, got removed, or were implicated in some kind of scandal, it's pretty insulting and petty to use me as an example of a useless CSM.

    Why don't you spend 10 minutes thinking about how useful all the "vets" of CSM X were who literally were so bad they disappeared or got kicked before using me as an example of uselessness. Some of them straight up went AWOL and left EVE, but somehow I'm the bad guy.


    • When Citadels were going to have features that would RUIN wormhole space I pushed (along with Corbexx) for their removal.
    • When literally nobody on CSM understood how missile damage application worked I lobbied hard to try to bring Missile Guidance Comps and the associated Rigor Catalyst nerfs to a reasonable point
    • When the new probing system was being put into place I pushed back again and again and again to get every fix possible made that wormholers and explorers were asking for
    • When the camera was completely SCREWED I sat with CCP and Jayne for several hours to walk them through community feedback on solo, fleet, and videomaking issues
    • Don't even get me started on just straight up trying to be a positive productive member while dealing with pretty much the most toxic CSM environment of all time
    • That stupid bracket for your own ship was part of my UI QOL agenda...
    • Did I mention that I actively and positively contributed to CSM all friggin year?


    I don't believe in calling people out by name, but there were legitimately veteran players on CSMX that didn't know how attributes affect skill point gain. Meanwhile they ranted just as loud about how injectors should work. There were veterans that responded to MAYBE 10% of the feedback posts in Confluence, even on issues they in theory knew about. When we had a branding/advertising exercise, one well-loved CSM flat out refused to participate on some unimaginable grounds. But you know, I'm the problem, right?

    In fact, I would be interested in more information on what you want specifically.

    What are things you want to change? What are things you don't want to change? What possible reactions do you expect from ccp regarding these things?
