Stellan C. for CSM XII

Greetings, capsuleer!

Or as the old intro used to say dare to be bold! So here’s my being bold.

I am a member of Brotherhood of Spacers, a sov-null alliance currently holding space in Perrigen Falls. While a member of an alliance, I am not being a candidate for this alliance only, although my focus might be weighted towards 0.0 as it is the area of the game I am most familiar with.

I am a candidate for you the players: the real strength of EVE Online.

Through my years of playing this game, I have really come to realise that the primary strength of this game is the social structures that exist within the game. I’m not necessarily speaking of alliance or corps, but also of communities like the Incursion communities, groups like Bombers’ Bar, Spectre Fleet, or channels like Broadcast for Reps.

I would love for those community aspects to be strengthened even perhaps through in-games means, perhaps UI/UX-wise.

My second point is that this great game needs to remain dynamic. While groups can start a chain of events that lead to great content like the recent Tribute War, I feel that CCP could help motivate this kind of change. I will not claim that I have any ready-made answer as to how CCP could help the ball moving, but I will gladly participate with my input of whatever changes CCP might present to the CSM.

As your CSM, I will strive to be your voice. While I do not keep a blog, or host a podcast, I am an ever present part of my alliance’s online and offline presence. My alliance mates, and people beyond the confines of my blues, know that they can count on me when the need arises.

-*-*-*-*-

I have played EVE since November 2012 when I created my first character. Less than a day in the trial, I chose to subscribe as I found the scenery beautiful. After spending some time in my newbro days in a small corp, I went my own ways towards highsec missioning in my solo corp. While I didn’t take part in massive fights, I followed the EVE metagame on Twitter, Reddit, and through forums and blogs. I am an active member of #tweetfleet and will gladly partake in any discussion about the future of the game (hence my candidacy).

Following the 2014 “This is EVE” trailer, I decided to shed my HS hem and join with Brave Newbies Inc. where I learnt so much. I have forged some of my strongest friendships with the people with whom I have shared space, corp, and comms.

I am currently fulfilling some non-critical roles in my alliance. I have worked with recruitment, diplo, and some light small gang FC’ing. I think that being a CSM would not impact my current roles.

In my real life, I work for the Main Library of Copenhagen in the logistics dept. My work hours allow me to dedicate most of my free time to EVE.

-*-*-*-*-

Finally, I’m always available on Twitter @minustar or in game. I pride myself in answering every eve-mail I should receive. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

And with that,
Fly safe, dangerously, or however you like.
o7 Stellan C.

And here's an itemised list of what things I would like to see implemented by CCP together with the CSM.


  • Game mechanics should encourage dynamic PVP and PVE play styles.
  • Add an option to share character information when applying to a corp. (e.g. mails, wallet, assets, etc.)
  • Every mechanic should have a counter play.
  • System security should change depending on the activity. The more ratting is done, higher sec. More PVP, lower sec. System security band shouldn't change and should remain tied to the static base security status.
  • Third party kill boards are great, but there should be an in-game ability to search killmails one has participated in.
  • The market window should allow CamelCase and word search. "Scourge missile" should return all scourge missiles (rockets, light, heavy, assault, cruise, etc.)
  • The drone UI needs a revamp. Drone health bars should update while tethered and repairing.
  • Proper beards and long hair for male characters.
  • The New Eden system should have a memorial to lost friends.
  • Right-clicking on a corpse should have a "Show Character Info" option.
  • Contracts need to show which corpses are being contracted.
  • An ESI endpoint to collect character sheet notes.
  • Hovering over the IG clock should also display the local time according to the PC settings.
  • Communications officers should be able to send IG notification pop-ups.

In the beginning, there was pain and despair. And death. Immense tragedies and terrible catastrophies.

Having flown with this pilot before his community statement would be more accurate if it were this:

I support the community when it has the same views as myself, if someone has differing views to my own i will go out of my way to berate, speak over, down to and make personal threats against those other line members

Due to various personal threats made by this pilot i wish to state that a vote for this candidate will do nothing but further damage the public brand image of the CSM.

While Stellan is a very passionate and enthusiastic player, these types of people should not be considered for CSM members.

I recognise that there has been issues in the past, and I’ll admit my doing then. I apologise for the issues. There’s been water under the bridge since.

I'm not sure that's only for you to decide. You mention several community structures in your OP. I agree that the community is what makes this game so great. Does community and working together go so far as trying to white knight a corp or leaking APIs when you don't get your way? I recognize that these actions and many others are completely valid and acceptable forms of Eve gameplay, but they're hardly actions that would promote and encourage discussion and/or change for good wouldn't you think? How would this translate to being an effective voice within the CSM?

Please note, this is not a troll post, this is purely a clarification of facts.

You made personal threats against other players (indicating physical harm out of game).

this is not a quality trait of someone who should be considered a representative of the community and the community should be aware of this.

To give the player base insight to how Stellan is in the game as well as out I'm going to post this conversation between Stellan and "No Named Mcgee" (player that I will keep anonymous)

This isn't meant to be personal but it will be taken that way. This is being put out to make sure that anyone considering to vote for him understands that he is a bomb shell and will not result in a good candidate for CSM

No, this was a mistake on my part and have asked CCP to correct it. I apologise for the confusion. Hopefully, the error will be fixed soon.

Since this mistake led me to you....endorse the cause #QuieroEVEenEspañol ...we need a localize spanish client. +400 million people speak the second most spoken language in the world yet in New Eden it is just a whisper.

If want to have my vote and tons of EVE Players that speak spanish do this. We are growing in EVE faster than any other cultural/language base with dozens of countries all over the globe after the alpha clone patch ran. It's time for CCP to act on this….we need the support of the CSM on this.

Yes, EVE should also come en Español. I was actually surprised that CCP chose French over Spanish as their latest localisation effort when the Spanish speaking community is several times larger than the French one.

I support this initiative.

Hello,

My question - what is your viewpoint regarding Faction standings and as a CSM member, what changes will 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.

An interesting idea. There should be no "free lunch" in the game.

From my understanding beyond having to "flee" from NPC Police when in low standings, there are no real advantages to having a high standing to a Faction. Back in the day, if I remember correctly, you needed a high standing to an empire to place a POS in high-sec, alas no longer. I have unfortunately no answers ready-at-hand, but I believe that having worked a high standing should give something back (maybe a reduction in fuel costs for structures?)
