Hi everyone! It’s wonderful to meet you! My name is Aliventi. Ever since 2010 I have been in love with Eve. I have done everything from being a part of the old Northern Coalition taking Fountain from IT alliance, learning to PvP during the Syndicate glory days from 2011-2014, flying for GalMil in FW, to living out of WH space (still have my POS BMs from when we lived out of POSes), flying in an AT, and taking SOV in many regions around Eve. I am so proud of my time, my experiences, the friends I have made, and the wonderful times we have had.
Why should you vote for me?
CCP made it clear during Fanfest: They are going to redo FW and introduce mechanics to FW that will translate to other spaces. Very few CSM candidates have the breadth and depth of experiences I have. If we fail to elect CSM members with my level of experience across all kinds of space, and how each space affects other kinds of space, you may find your play style as an “unfortunate casualty” to changes CCP is making. That’s why you need me on the CSM to fight to keep your space and your play style relevant!
I am a small alliance/small gang player. Flying Dangerous is my home. I am the candidate who will fight to ensure that CCP doesn’t nerf small alliances and small gangs out of Eve. You pay the same sub that a SOV player does. You deserve just as much of a place in Eve as they do.
I want you to always know that your play style matters to me. I don’t want you Eve to leave you behind. I want you to wake up just as excited to play Eve today as you did back when you had the most fun. I will work tirelessly to bring Eve back to its glory days.
When I am on the CSM you can always approach me and chat about whatever is on your mind when it comes to Eve. I love hearing the passionate ideas Eve players have. If you want to reach out to chat, or for an interview, you can reach me in-game and on Discord at Aliventi#9200!

What short term changes would I advocate for?
LP store re-balance:
FW rebalance is super exciting, but it will all fall apart if pilots can’t turn their LP into isk that they can turn into ships and get back out PvPing. I will tirelessly advocate for new and valuable items and ships be added to LP stores in FW and beyond.
Add LP to the market:
I am probably the oldest advocate of LP being added to the market. There are players who earn LP who have no interest in trying to schedule a sale with a buyer or produce anything with that LP. Just like there are people who want to build items but don’t want to grind LP. Let the market set the price, let people put up buy and sell orders, and we all gain the benefit of market taxes sinking additional isk out of the economy.
Remove attributes and attribute implants:
I have been arguing for the removal of attributes and attribute implants for over 7 years. CCP announced this will happen at Fanfest. You need me on the CSM to ensure attributes and attribute implants go away. I would love there to be no replacement for attribute implants, but I understand that the impact to the LP market would be extreme. As an interim I would support a booster that doesn’t disappear when you get podded. That way new bros can PvP without fear of losing their expensive attribute implants.
30 Second Spool Up timer for Filaments:
Filaments are a “get out of jail free” card to avoid PvP. That shouldn’t exist in Eve. If you aren’t safe enough to safe-log, you aren’t safe enough to filament. A 30 second spool up timer will fix that.
A new default overview for new players:
The default overview new players start with is trash. CCP should make a better one with player input and make it the default.
New fleet PvE sites for SOV:
WHs, Pochven, and Highsec all have group PvE options. SOV deserves PvE sites that can be run by groups with Logi. They should scale so you make more isk with higher DPS. And being in a fleet with Logi automatically gives you protection from small roaming gangs.
Add back in the missing Ore Belts:
It’s time for CCP to undo the removal of Ore Belts and remove the compensatory gate rats.
Allow Supercapitals to be built in Lowsec and NPC Nullsec:
New groups forming in Eve should go from Highsec → Lowsec/NPC Nullsec → SOV/WH space or stop anywhere along that path they want. The issue with SOV being stagnant with the same groups is that Supercapitals are a requirement to be successful, but can only be acquired at scale in SOV. So no group can independently acquire enough Supercapitals to be competitive in SOV without losing their independence along the way. To get new blood in to SOV we need Supercapitals to be able to be built outside of SOV.
Fix FAX Cap Booster limit:
CCP admitted the single Cap booster limit is a bug and hasn’t fixed it. I will advocate they fix this bug to bring FAXes back in balance.
Bring back Heavy Armor fights to WH space:
The key missing part of Heavy Armor fights in WH space is effective FAXes. CCP isn’t going to allow multiple Capital Cap Boosters again. I will advocate for CCP adding Deadspace Cap Rechargers, Cap Power Relays, and Subcapital Cap Boosters. Combined with Rapture Implants this will bring effective FAXes back to WH space, but will be too costly and skill prohibitive for massive amounts of them to be used by the SOV Blocs.
Remove K-space connecting Frig WHs:
WH space is designed to be limited in the number of pilots that can take part due to mass restrictions. Frigate WHs have no total mass limits. So a frigate WH connecting to K-space allows an unlimited number of pilots to enter a WH system. That’s the antithesis of WH space and should be removed.
Regular Balance changes:
I would love to see Team Talos or their successor come back and make regular balance adjustments.
