Hello all, most probably don't know me unless you're on tweetfleet slack or have joined Karina Ivonovich's recent Weebfleet slack. I'm here to throw my hat in to the CSM candidacy pot. Even though I'm not a big name, I know I can and will work hard to make sure my constituents are heard when it come to anything that may affect them. Anyways, on to my post.

WHO AM I?
I've been playing EVE solidly since May of 2013. Started as a highsec miner and one month in to the game I got my first taste of PvP venturing in to low to get some of those rocks. Never looked back. Joined E-UNI that August, stayed there for two years, then in August of 2015 I joined WAFFLES. While in E-UNI I did try out wormhole space for about 6 months, I stayed mostly entirely in lowsec. During it I've FC'd mostly small gang, my largest fleet hitting 50 people wherein we used carriers and dreads. I run a monthly "weebfleet" public fleet which is slowly gaining traction.

MY CAMPAIGN
I'm going in as a lowsec candidate. Primarily to help represent faction warfare space. Now while I've never done it myself. I am in good communication with a few people who have, one who has done it for a long time. They'll make sure I get all relevant feedback to pass on to CCP. You may be asking "Why care about FacWar if you're not part of it?" Well, the short of it is that even though I don't do it. It still has a large effect on my own gameplay. If it wasn't for the faction warfare in my area, it would be much harder to hunt targets. A healthy FacWar is a healthy lowsec.

TL;DR

  • Lowsec pilot
  • Small and Medium gang FC
  • Cares about all aspects of lowsec due to their symbiotic relationships.
  • #MakeLowsecGreatAgain

  • if you need to get ahold of me, feel free to EVEmail me, hit me up on tweetfleet slack, on Weebfleet discord, on reddit at /u/kalen_tsero, or even twitter @kalen_tsero (though I rarely get on my twitter.)

    Weebfleet proudly endorses this candidate.

    Some call me insane. If the universe is sane, then I embrace that label.

    Hello,

    My question - what is your viewpoint regarding Faction standings and as a CSM member, what changes would you propose to CCP pertaining to game mechanics for Faction standings ?

    Good luck to you in the upcoming CSM election.

    07 Candidate!

    First, thank you for your time and effort (both present and future) in representing the capsuleers of New Eden! They’re much appreciated.

    I’m preparing to cast my vote in the CSM12 elections. After reading the information you submitted, though, I still have a question.

    By way of background, I started in Eve as a hauler, moving freight in T1 industrials and gradually working my way up in both ships and cargo. However, I repeatedly found my progress impeded by gankers who would destroy my ship and steal my cargo. In low- and null-sec space, that’s to be expected. You place your bet and take your chances. In high-sec space, however, this is very frustrating. Why have high-sec space at all then? This frustration drove me into anti-ganking, and I’ve been a proud member of Thomas en Chasteaux's High-Sec Militia for several months now.

    So, my question. Where do you stand on high-sec ganking? I’ll concede that ganking is a legitimate style of game play, as CCP has ruled. But I also feel that it should be difficult and dangerous (for the ganker) in the 30% of New Eden designated as high-sec space. In particular, I’d like to see CCP tweak the game mechanics so that the criminal flag generated by looting a ganked freighter in high-sec space follows all players who handle that loot, and otherwise make looting more realistic. (Thomas en Chasteaux's ideas, not mine.)

    As a member of the CSM, would you present such an idea to CCP? Would you push for its adoption? What other game changes might you consider to make high-sec ganking more difficult and less profitable?

    Regards,
    Cochise Chiricahua.

    What do you mean my viewpoint regarding them? That's a broad topic and any way to answer it in its current form could make it appear as though I'm just fluffing something out. Could you be a big more concise?

    To be quite honest, and you're probably not going to be a fan of this. I'm actually happy where the ganking is in highsec right now. I've performed it myself both on Kalen directly and on a few alts. There is no way to alter the loot passing suspect without changing something for ALL sections of space unfortunately. As long as the hauler is in the fleet that kills a freighter, there's no risk for them.

    Also, the profitability really comes down to the freighter themselves. If they're a properly tanked obelisk with a moderate amount of items in the hold. Then it will be significantly less profitable to gank them versus the cargo expanded charon carrying like 2 incursion pirate battleships. That's where it comes down to risk versus reward on your behalf. The more you carry at once, the more risk you're taking.
