  • Can we get rid of CSM after the recent PLEX insider trading fiasco? in EVE Communication Center

    Oh Look! It's this thread again...

    Nobody on the CSM did any kind of insider trading. If they did I would be shouting it from the highest mountain tops for all to hear.

    How do you plan to improve the new player experience? What are some flaws that you plan to address in the CSM and the new player experience?


    I have been running people through it to find sequence breaks and other problems. I have been noting when the people I run through it get stuck or have a confusion. I give this data to CCP. I am really good at finding flaws in any system. CCP seems to have a ravenous appetite for fixing these flaws when it comes to the NPE.

    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.

    FW standings are really gimicky and I know this because I participated in the capture of lad. FW can be fun but the way standings play a part is in need of a total reworking.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I was actually referring to the effect of Faction standings in all aspects of the game.

    This game was based on having a balance in 'Risk vs Reward' and 'Actions vs Consequences'. Currently the only way to repair negative Faction standings is to grind missions. It takes time for players to ruin Faction standings and as such it should also take some time to repair those standings. In the past Characters use to be accountable for their actions in-game, now most everything has been dumbed down and turned into easy mode for the instant gratification crowd. That's something I don't want to see happen to Faction standings.

    Currently the in-game aspects of Faction standings :
    Positive Faction standings are the only way to access Cosmos Agents (one time access).
    Positive Faction and Corporation standings are needed to access Research Agents.
    All other Agents only require minimal amount of Faction standing for access (-2.00 or higher standing).
    High Faction standings reduce Market Broker fees and Reprocessing fees in NPC stations.
    At -5.00 or lower Faction standing, Empire NPC's will attack when in their space.

    I created and shared the 'Faction Standing Repair Plan' with the playerbase back in 2010. In my opinion players need more options available to repair negative Faction standings then what I've listed in 'The Plan'. Most of those Event Agents can only be accessed once in the characters life. A lot of players in-game don't even read the forums so they don't know that guide is available. In fact repairing negative Faction standings is extremely tough on new players who haven't even learned the game yet. They can easily mess up their Faction standings right from the start without actually knowing it.

    I think the process of Faction standing repair should be implemented in-game to be more intuitive instead of being so obscure. All changes to Faction standings should be brought to the players attention with an on screen pop up message. Any action that would cause negative Faction standing should trigger an on screen pop up warning (with option to deactivate). All Anti-Empire missions should have a warning to alert players that accepting and completing those missions will incur negative Faction standings. An idea presented by others is to have Tags for Standings. Personally I don't really like the idea but if it's similar to Tags for Security, I guess it would be acceptable. Lastly CCP could add another group of NPC Agents to the in-game Agent Finder strictly for Faction standing repair, sorta like the proposal I have listed in my forum signature.

    Thanks again and good luck in the upcoming election.

    The easy fix would be a tag system like we have for sec status but I am pretty sure CCP wants to re-do the standing system overall at some point. There is a lot of fruity math happening that could be better too.

    Will you be endorsed by Those Bee Guys again this year or are you running as an independent candidate?


    Fair Question.
    Due to the math behind ballots and the total amount of seats being reduced to 10, I will likely only have a symbolic place on the official goon ballot. It's important for them to get their people back in so that slots on the ballot that matter are 1-3 and those slots are going to be reserved for directors and what goons call "operators". My position on the goon ballot if I am on it at all will not really contribute to my re-election because run-off is much lower with only 10 seats.

    Hi, I am Xenuria. I have arms. I also have an extensive education in psychology and behavioral analysis. While on CSM 11 I used my diverse subject matter expertise to help CCP on their NPE, branding and even some aspects of community development. I am running for re-election and would appreciate your vote.

    Last season I had some really nice endorsements from people like MinerBumping, /r/eve and several other communities. I was even placed on the Imperium Ballot.

    This season there are only 10 CSM spots up for grabs and this is going to change the math of how many votes an outsider like me needs to be elected. I won't lie to you, there is a very real chance I do not get re-elected. Many people voted for me because they were told that I was some horrible monstrous person that would end up being a cumbersome pest to CCP. I didn't end up communicating in CSM sessions through interpretive dance like reddits suggested I would and I didn't run around CCP offices naked like certain other websites proclaimed with certainty. They voted for me to troll CCP and Instead I put serious effort into a position that I care deeply about. My autism helps me see things differently, examine them without bias and motivates me to push myself. For somebody who has trouble with social interaction, I think I did a pretty good job this term.

    If you vote for me again and I am elected, I will continue my efforts to reform the CSM and advocate for a increasingly better New Player Experience. If you don't trust me or don't think you should vote for me, or vote at all; ask somebody you trust what they think. There is a surface to all this, a thin nebulous thing that obscures deeper insights. I am actually a orb.

  • ROSADA DAWN PINK SKINS for Combat ships wanted - Please X up in EVE Communication Center

    Hi, I am Xenuria.
    I have been pushing for pink skins for some time now. The best thing you can do to bring about MORE pink skins is to buy a bunch of the current ones. I have been pleading with CCP's Art team, especially their new director. No matter how many times I bring up popular genre defining sci-fi films and books that incorporate pink as a regular color in their pallet I am still met with push-back. It's as if the past century of sci-fi never happened and if it did certaintly didn't have pink in it, no sir.

    Getting more pink skins into EvE Online is not something that can be won in the way an argument or debate is won. The only way eve will get more pink skins is if the current ones sell with such insane and rapacious hunger that CCP has no choice but to stop leaving money on the table.

    I think if you made a name based on information present at the time, and that information had no expectation of changing but did anyway; you should be able to have your name changed to accommodate that.

    I would file a petition and explain the situation to a GM.
