I never said anyone was pulling your strings, only that you wouldn’t get elected without their vote.
Like real life, those who really control the CSM elections know if they didn’t have 1 or 2 “outsiders” elected, CCP (the governing body) would change how the elections are held. Or do the right thing and just give up on the idea of a “player representative group” which has never been representative of more than minorities within the player base.
Simply the fact 1 person with 100 alts can vote 100 times skews the chance of any realistic election results.
Sorry to say but you are nothing but a puppet in a pretend election process, whether you want to see it that way or not.
CSM elections are a farce
Why would they pay you? You serve the purpose they put you there for. You get to say you were elected by the player base because, whatever you like to tell yourself AND now you want payment for all those free votes…
Sorry but there is no “democracy” in CSM elections, the results are fixed by the mega groups and democracy should NEVER EVER be based on popularity.
Why do you think the world is so fuk’d up today - Politics is about what the elected member can get out of it, it has little to nothing to do with what they can do for the wider community.
NB; The election fixing for the CSM is quite transparent, if you know where to look…
