I am Vily, the longest running Bloc FC in EVE. I have participated in every element of this game at usually the highest level possible.
I’m running for the CSM again because i feel that its an important role that needs to be fulfilled by the people that know this game best. By the people who have the widest breadth of experience and the people who are able to make the best decisions for the good of the game.
To give a brief intro to myself. I started the game as with the Coalition of Empires in 2005, moved to KAOS Empire shortly after COE was killed and participated in many of the big battles of Forsaken Empire during the day. Left KAOS during the eviction by Mercenary Coalition and ended up as a Roleplayer for Khanid long before they got their own bloodline. Joined Beagle corp and harassed the north small gang style, was one of the first generation dictor pilots (and how I got the name Vily vs. my original Robet Katrix) Joined MC after Beagle, became a prominent FC there. Led the corp Eternity for a while and participated in the formation and short end of Project Alice Alliance. Joined RZR and participated in all the MAX campaigns. Was one of the leaders in Exalted Alliance which was another small gang/lowsec/nullsec entrance group. Later part of MH and their high command. One of the original bomber FC’s, leading the development of tactics and strategies. Joined GSF after MH where I “worked/led/did stuff” for 5 years. Left GSF after some conflicting personalities, joined TEST. Rebuilt a lot of TEST from ground up. Arguable founder of Legacy. Proponent of shield supers for a long time.
That’s very brief. But I’ve been around for 14 years and done almost everything. I’m here to help the developers at CCP make this game better.
So let’s talk some policy.
I will utilize my experience to push for things that are best for the game. That doesn’t mean they will be the popular opinion or the most common one but they will be always for the best of the game.
I was a member of CSM14 and accomplished a lot of things.
This is a short list of items I personally pushed for or contributed on (not just items CCP requested feedback on):
Warp Speed Changes
Pirate Shipyard changes
Ansiblex/Tenebrex Citadel Ranges
Citadel Timer changes
ADM Vuln window changes
Faction Warfare changes
Diminishing Returns on FAX
Super capital EHP nerfs
Support fighter Tubes
I’m happy to comment on my record, and CCP’s record while CSM 14 was in play and the positive changes we have helped make to the game.
