  • Vote Xenuria for CSM 12 in Council of Stellar Management

    I had to share car rides with Xenuria to and from the airport at both summits. He did not murder me.
    +1

    Edit: Also he got you pink skins.

  • Aryth for CSM 12 in Council of Stellar Management

    Behind the tough exterior, he's actually a pretty nice guy. Kind of like the cool dad figure on CSM 11. Also, he finds good beer in Iceland.

  • Monthly Meetup - DC / VA / MD Area (Saturday, 25th March 2017) in EVE Gameplay Center

    Just got poked about this event, gonna try make it and drag some other DC nerds over too.

  • Steve Ronuken for CSM XII in Council of Stellar Management

    With most people you would be right to get a little weary of someone who has been on the CSM as long as Steve has - but he really is the exception to the incumbency rule. From the moment CSM 11 stepped in, he was the font of institutional knowledge that we all relied upon to ease the transition period, and kept up that positive helpful attitude all the way through. His areas of expertise are those which very few candidates can offer insight on, making him a great representative for third party developers and market nerds alike. High Sec and Industry nerds need not look any further for their go-to candidate for CSM 12 and I hope you all will cast your support behind the man - the myth - the beard - fuzzy Steve Ronuken.

  • Jin'taan for CSM XII in Council of Stellar Management

    As a CSM 11 member who had the pleasure of meeting and working with Jin this year, I highly recommend and support his candidacy for CSM 12 and urge all prospective voters to back him this year. Jin's work as the unofficial secretary/spokesperson on CSM 11 was invaluable in keeping the community abreast of what was going on in our discussions with CCP, all while maintaining the level of discretion necessary in an NDA'd position. While many CSM members like myself preferred a more narrow, expert-oriented method of gathering feedback, Jin succeeded in the opposite and brought valuable information to CCP from a wide variety of players through forums like townhalls.

    Jin is an extremely dedicated and passionate player and CSM member, and despite his notorious inability to hold his liquor, is one of those guys that everyone appreciated having at our meetings and summits. I wish him the best of luck in his campaign this year and hope you all will consider backing him for another year representing the playerbase on CSM 12.

  • Zkill guide to Running for CSM 12 by rhiload in Council of Stellar Management

    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.

  • Suitonia for CSM XII in Council of Stellar Management

    With the departure of both myself and Gorski at the end of CSM 11, the critical role of a balance and small gang/solo council member will go vacant and will require a successor. It is for this reason that I support and endorse Suitonia's candidacy for CSM 12, and encourage any and all who supported Gorski or myself to back Suitonia in this election. Although I proposed and supported the reduction of the total number of CSM members from 14 to 10, I completely understand that it makes it harder for 'non-bloc' focused candidates to get the necessary votes to secure a seat. This is why it is critical that if mechanics, balance, and small gang/solo PVP are important issues to you, that you place Suitonia at the top of your ballot this year to ensure these issues have an experienced voice representing them at the table.

    Despite Suitonia's reputation as a pilot of the detestable frigate class space vessels, I can assure you that in all seriousness that he is one of only a handful of people in the game with the necessary experience, depth of understanding, and ability to articulate feedback to fill this important balance-focused role. This is demonstrated by his: (1) years of PVP experience in the game;(2)numerous articles and writeups analysing balance problems, and (3) dozens of videos showcasing his understanding of fitting, piloting, and mechanics. His existing relationship with CCP Devs will only be strengthened by securing a seat on the CSM, and I trust him to objectively address the topics I care about most and continue the work done by CSM 11 in this regard. I encourage all solo/balance focused voters to back Suitonia in this election. Good luck on your campaign and may the holy Battleships flourish in your care.

  • Capri Sun KraftFoods - CSM XII in Council of Stellar Management

    I wholeheartedly support Capri for CSM 12. He is a level-headed and articulate player who will be able to build upon the successes of CSM 11 had in restoring productive relations with CCP. He has two of the most important skills for any successful CSM candidate: (1) Understanding the real role of the CSM and how council members should behave; and (2) proving well-written constructive feedback on the game without letting things get hostile.

    It is easy to complain - the playerbase is very good at that. It is an entirely different thing to be able to find the root of a problem, and propose a well-thought-out solution or change that benefits the game as a whole. I am confident Capri will be a valuable addition to the CSM team, and will be able to bring his particular subject-matter expertise to bear while also supporting other areas such as game balance and small/solo pvp. Best of luck on your campaign.

    Hey folks. The summer vacation season is over, we've done enough internal planning here at CCP to get a good estimate of exactly when different things can fit into our roadmap. I've re-read all the logs from earlier in the year to make sure my memory of the earlier discussions is nice and fresh.

    So we're officially restarting the T3D focus group, with a specific goal of preparing for a comprehensive rebalance in our big November release.

    All the original focus group members have been invited to the new channel, and we may open up a search for new members depending on how many of the original members still have time to participate. CSM 11 members also have open invites to join.


    Without the hated Tactical Destroyers to suffocate us, once more shall the Frigates roam free to beat down the hated Battleship oppressors. Truly, a glorious day for our kind.


    T3Ds are part of the Frigate Menace. Soon Battleships will roam the skies again and smite your kind like the locusts you are. #MakeBattleshipsGreatAgain

  • CSM XI - Fall Summit 2016 Preperations in Council of Stellar Management

    I would also like to point out that none of these scheduled groups or town halls precludes you from individually or collectively contacting us with your ideas or opinions. We are all available throughout our term to hear from you on any topic.

    Quote:
    Hyde has been amassing what basically amounts to a full run down of pretty much every module, ship, ammo type and mechanic in the game to write down his balancing assessment of it,


    Confirming that this is my main personal project going into the summit. If you have a balance issue, It's very likely I have it down already; but if you feel strongly about an issue and want to re-iterate your perspective on it to me, please send me/link me your doc/write-up. Numbers and justifications preferred over mere opinions. Thanks.

    Just wanted to post on here that I will be in attendance as well for what it's worth. I realize that Wormholes aren't really my area of expertise but I'll be lurking and listening.

    Hi Space Friends,

    Small update to the Serpentis Capital ships stats in the OP. In general >
    • Buff to their Shield/Armor/Hull
    • Small buff to their Capacitor
    • Small buff to their Speed/Align Time
    • Small buff to their Sensor Strength / Scan Resolution


    This brings them closer in-line to the advantages of other Serpentis ships over their T1 counterparts.



    Paging Big Miker; your nano dreams just got better.

    Good stuff! I can see fitting one on my rattlesnake or golem instead of a second heavy cap booster as a new form of neut protection.
