My EVE Story:
Started waaay back in 2009 Like many people started off doing highsec missions, trying to save up for some shiny ship that would be my baby. (The goal at the time was a Nightmare I believe). Eventually got convinced by some people I’d met in the Heimatar area (shoutout to all the OGs in Frarn and Lustrevik) to try out the nullsec bloc life. Barely remember who it was even under, but after being there for a bit I realized I just felt lost in the crowd and had no interest in that sort of play. Not knowing what else to do I headed back to HS. Ended up meeting some other people who were dicking around in some lowsec areas and became good friends, eventually deciding to try out wormholes together. We were running all sorts of bizarro jank setups for both small/microgang PvP and PvE. No idea what we were doing but having a great time doing it. This is when I realized this is what I wanted to do and this is the kind of group I wanted to fly with, and there’s been no looking back since then.
Why am I running?
Same reason anyone would be: Because I want a voice on the CSM to advocate for what I’m passionate about; what I think would make EVE a more fun place to be, and what I think would make eve more fun is to have more ways for people to affect their area of space, more objectives to fight over that are not so long and so high stakes it will consume an entire weekend; more reasons for people to be out in space, and good rewards for those who risk it, but less guaranteed safety. This extends not only WH space, but LS and NS as well. Below is a more specific list:
New anchorable structures that give smaller objectives to fight over - Things that aren’t multiday timers, things that are maybe just for fun and not even for a strategic or economic benefit. Give us aesthetic monuments we can put up. Let us wave our e-peen for no economic gain, and let me shoot at someone’s e-peen!
Finally replace POSs with FOBs - We were promised this years ago, its only reasonable we should finally get this. POS’s are a colossal pain to use or attack.
New rare WH anomalies - Give some new PvE content for the first time in a long while, and maybe something fun for people to fight over.
Find a Niche for WH Moons -As is WH moons are worthless, but giving them some ore from another parts of space just takes away from that area. Lets add something unique to those moons to give people a reason utilize them. More people out and about in wormholes is always a good thing.
Reduction of LS Gate Gun Tracking - Make it viable for frigates/destroyers to engage on gates without waiting around for criminal timer games without getting vaporized by gate guns.
Make Warp Scramblers Disable Gate or Ansiblex Jumping - If you’re scrammed, you should be in trouble. Its too easy for people to pick and choose engagements and wait out weapon timers. If you’re caught, that should mean something.
Rebalance of C1/C4 Combat sites - Very few people do these as the isk rewards vs the risk and time of the sites is not worth it.
Rebalance of T1 Battleship and Pirate Faction Ship Industry - The prices for these are excessive, especially compared to marauder prices. Blueprint material requirements need to be toned down a little bit.
What will I give to you, the people?
You’ll get a casual WH living, NS and LS roaming goblin. I’m someone who is pragmatic and flexible. I know I only have my perspective on things and am always interested in hearing other people’s arguments on why X thing I proposed is terrible (Or great, flattery WILL get you far ) or why Y should be added to the priority list. If elected I’ll hold some semi-regular VC town halls to poll what issues people feel are currently most pressing. Feel free to contact me in game whenever!
