Hello good people. I am Ezekiel Amann, some of you may know me from the main Facebook Group as Travis Joshua Wells, a Moderator.
I am running for CSM 14 with special interest to Wormhole Space. I love this game with all my heart, and spend most of each day online talking to people about the game, and making memes for the @DankEveMemes page I run with a team of memers. I’ve played Eve Online since Valentine’s Day 2009. And currently reside with Sinner’s Trajectory C5 Corp.
My platform in a nutshell, is make Eve harder. Yes, harder. For far too long Safety Nets have crept in and kept making our player base weaker and weaker. From Asset Safety, to OP insurance on T1 hulls, to CCP turning a blind eye to Twitch bots that warn you there’s a wormhole 8 jumps away. Below is my specific suggestions for each area of the game. These will be added to as time goes on. Please do forgive the admins on the Praise Bob Discord, they seem threatened by my campaign and banned me from seeing and answering questions on there.
HighSec - Know as the second most dangerous area of the game. I want to have it become a hub for player based law enforcement, Bounty Hunters. I want Bounty Hunting to be a true and active lifestyle in it’s own right. I believe the necessary functions are already in the game to make a truly mesmerizing system that is both constant PvP and free of exploits. I want CCP to assign targets, to prospective Bounty Hunters at random much how like agents do with Level 4 Missions, awards like Project Discovery. As the Bounty Hunter grows in level they can access more Intel on their targets, quicker. Pay outs will be based on What you killed of the other player, where you killed them, how quickly you killed them. Each of these awarding up to a percentage of the pilots total bounty pool. It is possible to go over 100% and at that point the player will get Bounty Points (Loyalty Points) to spend on skins, new powers, ship upgrades, local lags so they don’t show up for a certain amount of time, also Intel which becomes more and more detailed as their influence gains. Wouldn’t you like to know your target is in J230657 and flying a Loki? Cool eh? Of course to make this balanced it would require Kill rights to be completely removed, and only players who have been wronged by another may place a bounty on said player.
LowSec- Fairly simple and straight forward, Super Drops incoming from NullSec must be stopped completely. This has almost driven pirates extinct. Pirates used to be one of the most common things in Eve if you remember. But now LowSec is just a ring around HighSec, kinda lame. This is because of Cyno Baiting. Supers, and supers only should be blocked from Hot Dropping into LowSec. Capitals are still fine in my opinion.
NullSec - Now here’s where I will anger people. NullSec is the safest and most risk free area of the game and it is a compound issue. Asset Safety needs to go away completely. OP Insurance on T1 hulls, needs to be greatly nerfed. CCP needs to quit beating Roquals to death with the nerf bat. I feel that if you train up a 30 mil SP toon to fly one, and can only make about 2 million per minute with such an expensive ship with expensive drones, it’s nonsense. You can make twice that with a four month old Character in a Rattlesnake running wormhole sites.
Wormhole Space: You’ll hear a lot of nonsense from the C5 elitists saying “Delete C4 Spess!” But I disagree. Each class of Wormholes has their uses, varying lifestyles, pros and cons. C4s have two statics. If you live in a C5 with a C4 Static you are almost guaranteed to have a delicious chain to scan and hunt in.
More will be added to my overall platform as this progresses, but now I want to hear from you. What are your thoughts on what I’ve said? Disagree? Please, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Agree? Thank you but I still want to speak with you. I can’t count how many times on Facebook someone has come forward and said “Eze I think you’re wrong about that…” And they completely change my mind and better my stance. So, I’m waiting, what do you got for me?
