Kenneth Feld for CSM 17

So, we started this wild ride in CSM 15, then moved to CSM 16 and we finally got back to being able to mine and build. Now CSM 17, in addition to the FW items needs to go back and grab the low hanging fruit and remove the last of the “Pain Points”

This will obviously be my last campaign and if elected my last term. Thank you for your support over the past 2 years and I look forward to CSM 17 if elected.

Make Industry tax use EIV instead of gross job cost for a base (so corps can actually tax usage and make isk)
There is still not enough Myko gas
PI is still horrible (wasn’t a possible volume change mentioned?)
There are still quite a few outliers in industry that don’t conform - looking at you cap guns and a few Other items that need to get rounded out (and down) to “Smooth” cap production
molecular condensers are still in “Tight” supply - I would like them to be put in the faction LP stores - this would give them a “Ceiling” for price - so make the ceiling “High” but not make them a bottle neck.

Gameplay items:
Jump Fatigue from Ansiblex Junp gates
Ability to have proper taxes on manufacturing/research in EC
Ability for corps/alliance to tax all sources of income (isk/LP/ore)
iHUB rebalance
Ability to attack guns and services in citadels
“pochven” style PvE activities in nullsec requiring fleets and coordination and the ability to disrupt this
L0/1/2/3 Abyssals in HS - in order to run L4/5/6 you have to be in LS or NS/WH

More keys
More variety of keys (Master key, percentage keys)
More ways to obtain keys - and NOT instanced PvE


I approve and am glad he is running again.

I may not agree 100% with Kenneth on all things however, he is by far the best (IMO) and will get my vote.

I really appreciate the amount of time and effort you put in to helping people understand the changes that have gone on in industry over the last couple of years. I wish you the best of luck.

I am not leaving my wormhole just to do abyssals besides that I love instanced PVE. What you propose is a terrible idea. You seem to just be a candidate to fix your own game without much consideration for anyone else. -1

That was an oversite - I just didn’t write in WH, I will correct my post - I am sorry for the confusion

The point is more to prevent the abundance of instanced risk free (almost) PvE from HS

Technically already exists through NS incursion (whether or not those are actually run is a whole story ofc).

Also with the current ability of NS to lock out opposition (endless capability to drop structures, no NPC stations, long supply lines, supercap umbrella) - none of which apply to Pochven, any sporadic high-value NS events will just turn into a krab rave of whatever superbloc controls the space.

kenneth there is so much to mention about your bright ideas .just a small recap .The industry patch that you where so proud off ,and you where talking left and right that you where responsible .Nobody can build caps.You eliminate the small to medium industrial guys .BP market crashed.Prices went up while along side with scarcity people where flying caracals all the time , so many people left the game with your bright ideas .You are bad for the game and pl . But what can anyone expect from you the guy who portrayed himself as the hero of pandemic legion that stepped up .destroy everything kenneth make them suffer.

Thanks for your comment

Like a LOT of others you seem to confuse explanation with acceptance or even happiness. The original industry changes were not done by the CSM, they were crafted by CCP and you saw the “After” which fi you saw the “Before” it was a completely different story, which I can’t tell for 5 years.

That said, there was an end goal which is where we are now and with the exception of a few bottle necks which I am trying to get CCP to work thru we should be back to full scale building. It just took 6-9 months too long to get to the end.

As far as small/medium build corps - as @Nick_Bison above about that. Is he producing today what he produced before - no, but did he adapt and overcome and making more isk now - yes. I get those stories almost weekly. So, I am sure there were some small builders who closed up, but there were many who adapted and even more that started up.

As far as the timing, if I was in charge I would have started with revamping industry as it is today - negating the need for large scale scarcity for minerals as they are only T1 and I don’t much care if caracals are 10 mil or 2 mil. HOWEVER, you have to be able to make mining a viable activity, so some sort of burn would be needed to get rid of excess stockpiles from rorquals online. Unfortunately people don’t realize I don’t work for CCP and I don’t get to make decisions, and I certainly didn’t have nearly as much to do with the first industry as people think - but if that is your opinion, so be it. Have a great day and vote - even if it isn’t for me.

kenneth should i start linking your interviews in tis or asterothy and then maybe you can remember what you were bragging about?As far as for small medium industry and your so called success story just check the forum post about the industry changes or like open the market in game …You are kinda the worst csm member ever .About the rorguals online the game was fun before that age also fun in that age not fun now you know why there is nobody in space now .just open twitch tv see the streamers everyone that was a good streamer and had a lot of funs is now gone , i mean industry played a part on it there where more stupid things also.If u think people will buy plex to fund their pvp in an all loss game you are delusional like your friend rattati .all that said enjoy your trilions isk in a died game ,you played a big part on the dying part

I can’t stop you from linking anything you want - however if you are going to try and saddle me for something I had very little to do with - make sure to include the most recent industry change which i had a TON to do with and as I already explained it, I didn’t have to re explain what was going on.

Don’t forget to include all the mining and compression changes which I also had a TON to do with.

But, that probably doesn’t fit your narrative


oh rly so you werent talking about how the industry changes where yours and all? lol .Be a man …

yeah you are kinda the mosses guiding us to the promise land , get a life .(waste mechanics the industry pvp as u said yeah sure the 2ond industry patch was so good as the first ,still keneth u got a big mouth u had a ton to do with omg u are rly special)

Kinda proves the CSM is useless. Can you name one thing the CSM has actually had any impact on? Feedback CCP couldnt have just gleamed from Reddit or the Eve Online Forums?

The problem with that question is the answers are all NDA

Reddit and forums are players - CSM are players - our sentiment typically matches those on reddit/forums - It is just more efficient to ask the CSM - The community team does scour the interwebs for information and use that as well. I would say 99% of the time it very very closely mirrors what we have already said.

The funniest thing is when something gets put out and CSM has made comments on it in private (3 days earlier) and CCP decides to release the forum post as is, then reddit and forums erupt and it changes 3 days later and everyone says CSM is useless but they gave the exact same feedback prior to the blog/forum post. Anyway, it is what it is. CCP decides what they listen to or not, they decide when/if to release information. CCP doesn’t work for the CSM and we can only advocate for things and give suggestions, but ultimately CCP have the final say.


Eve Mail sent requesting a CSM interview on behalf of Ashterothi. Looking to book this Friday - Sunday. Let us know if you’re interested.
