Today I found out that @Innominate and @Merkelchen can not run for CSM this coming year. What a lost to the community this will be.
I hope that Goons put the Gooner’s Indy/Economic/Miner specialists up for CSM. We need some real economic/indy/miners to explain to the CCP developers what CCP has done to the game and to fight against CCP to not make the game worse then it is now.
I hope @Brisc_Rubal is going to run again and keep up the good fight against CCP. I really hope that Mittens runs for CSM!!
The players and the game need CSM members that will actively fight against what CCP is doing to the game. Since @Innominate and @Merkelchen can not run for CSM, the players and game need CSMs that will call out CCP BS like they have doing.
It is not cool aid to agree with what @Brisc_Rubal , @Innominate and @Merkelchen have to say about the direction the game is going. These CSMs are make valid points about what CCP is doing to the game and how it is hurting the game/players.
Yes that is him and he paid for what he said. He stepped down from CSM 6 and did not run for CSM 7. He apologized to the player and even send tons of isk to him.
What Mittens bring to the table as CSM is a wealth of information that pales what CCP understands about Eve. This man runs the largest alliances and industrial machine in all of New Eden history.
If you don’t like Goons that is fine but Goons have it figured it out and know what is going inside of New Eden.
If Mittens does not run then I really hope that Goons put up the industrial or economic Gooners to run for CSM. The players need CSMs that understand the industrial, mining and economy of Eve better then CCP does.
goon csm represent their constituent and that’s ok but don’t think for a minute they give a rat’s ass about the rest of eve .
to paraphrase (some goon honcho): we’re here to improve OUR game , not THE game …
I’m going to say what I said before I joined Goons: its pretty sad that Mittens is forever judged for something he a decade ago. Seriously, has he done anything similar to this in recent history? No. But he continues to be judged by this event.
What’s sad is the offended party accepted his apology and what Mittens offered in an attempt to make up for what he did. In short: Mittens apologized and made restitution. And he hasn’t reoffended.
You don’t have to worry about it anyways, Mittens made it pretty clear during his interview on Declarations of War that he has no interest in dealing with the CSM drama and has other people in the Imperium deal with the headache.
On related news: I think Angry Mustache is probably going to run. CCP is gonna get buried in spreadsheets and charts from him.
