Melicien Tetro for CSM18 🔺

I haven’t spent as much time as I’d like to in Pochven since Totality, but my war trophies have been near to my heart while plotting a return.

if you want another place besides these forums to enjoy content that’s actually just about eve online and not a complete circle jerk. Check it out. I’m not sure how much I’m allowed to say, but instead of Karma, it’s straight to Paypal when you make postworthy content. Go ahead and apply. :smiley:

Interested in a candidate who will advocate for Pochven & the Trig/EDENCOM storyline? Look no further. This man won’t shut up about about triangles. Even though I haven’t played EVE in years, he’s constantly telling me about new developments in the story and ideas to improve interaction with the region. If you too share a passion for this content, vote for Mel.

Good luck with your campaign. Pochven is certainly a unique part of the game that has it’s own challenges and specifics to set it apart from the rest of EVE. Having a candidate that has expertise on this will be valuable on the CSM.

I do have the ask the question that if the focus of CCP is not on Pochven, the Triglavian and/or EDENCOM story and new player retention, what would you be able to add to the CSM?

Frankly, I’m ONLY running because I heard there was an internal focus on Pochven, Wormholes, Small Gang, Hi Sec and Role Play, among other things. Otherwise, I’d let the imposter syndrome take hold and I wouldn’t be running at all. In fact, I see my narrow focus as a strength. I can safely say “I don’t know” on a lot of issues, I don’t have to pander to null blocks, and I can focus on the things me and my peers enjoy.

I wish I had a better answer, but most of the issues I care about are related to one of bullet points you mentioned.
The reality is that the CSM is a focus group, and I happen to check a lot of the boxes so I tossed my hat in.
I’m honestly doubtful I’ll have a chance for a top ten vote, I’m just here to be selected if I am needed.

Thank you for the thoughtful question! I hope my answer is alright. :smiley:

@Melicien_Tetro would you back any idea mentioned below as CSM member?

  1. Insane idea - pay with PLEX in NES for extra dev time
  2. Quafe+ is from "biomass" (...or corpse reprocessing)
  3. Little things / Small QoL suggestions - Better Visibility Of Other Players’ PI Networks
  4. Little things / Small QoL suggestions - 13 requests for Stack Split enhancment since Jun’18
  5. Little things / Small QoL suggestions - PI KB-shortcuts for toggling between groups of structures

If these suggestions were brought before me as things that CCP was considering, I’d support them. :smiley:

Correct! We gotta conspire like everybody else does to win this rigged game. ;D

I’m super old, so my employment history is forever long.
Here’s a little snippet to show you my recent activity, and involvement with totality and Pochven. :smiley:

I think Melicien would be good on the CSM for the continued health of Pochven.

A Brief Summary of My CSM18 Campaign in EVE Online:

My EVE Online Journey: Back in May 2004, when I was just 15, I joined EVE Online with the influence of a close friend and his brother. We formed our own groups, engaged in battles, and I became a drone pilot in my trusty Vexor. Over the years, I brought in more friends and explored various aspects of the game, adapting to its changes. The game landscape evolved, leading us to wormholes and eventually to Pandemic Horde, where I learned and grew alongside my partner. The Invasion era shook things up, leading me to champion through Liminality and even forming the Stribog group. My journey culminated in establishing the AZDAJA CLADE alliance, focused on unity and community building in Pochven.

My Expertise:

  1. Triglavian Lore and Pochven: My involvement in the Triglavian narrative and Pochven is deeply personal, having fought in the Invasion and nurtured a vision for a thriving Pochven. I aim to facilitate communication between invested Triglavian groups and CCP for the region’s betterment.
  2. New Player Experience: Partnering with a player who joined in 2014 and engaging with newer players has given me insights into the challenges and potential of retaining new players, something I’m passionate about improving.
  3. Roleplay: I’ve fully embraced roleplaying within the EVE universe, delving into Triglavian lore and immersing myself in my capsuleer’s persona. This commitment provides me a unique perspective on the game’s immersive elements.

Why I’m Running for CSM: My core objective is to stand as a representative for the Pochven community, ensuring that Triglavian-related matters are at the forefront. With no ties to nullsec, I believe I can provide valuable guidance and insights to further the development of Pochven.

What Players Can Expect from Me: I promise to be accessible and engaged with players, addressing concerns related to Pochven, new player experiences, and Triglavian lore. I will remain steadfast in upholding my values and only respond to loyalties that align with my platform. I’m not here to purchase votes or entertain unrelated agendas.

Final Words: My journey in EVE Online has spanned almost two decades, and my passion for the game, Triglavian lore, and Pochven has only grown stronger. If elected to CSM18, I aim to bring this passion, my unique insights, and my commitment to inclusivity to the table, advocating for our community’s interests and shaping the future of EVE Online.


  1. What do CCP do correctly?
  2. What do CCP do incorrectly?
  3. What do you wish existed in-game that doesn’t?
  4. What exists in-game that you wish didn’t?
  5. What exists in-game that you think ought to continue to exist?
  6. What doesn’t exist in-game that you hope never comes into existence?
  7. How would you improve PI?
  8. How would you improve the entire corporation UI?

1:Keep this game running for 20 years, looking like another 20 more
2:Pandering too much to null blocks and multiboxers instead of new and potential users.
3:Xordazh as a player ship

4:Slavery Roleplay, Hisec Ganking, Multiboxing
6:Erotic Roleplay Cosmetics
7:Hotkeys, Copying layouts, and combat interactions with the larger world
8:start again from scratch, with a focus team made mostly of new players trying to lead a corp.

I didn’t know that I didn’t want this either.

4:Slavery Roleplay,

Hmm this is an edge, good point.

8:start again from scratch, with a focus team made mostly of new players trying to lead a corp.

This s a good strategy, and I’m myself am unsure whether anything can be made of the current Ui, it may be necessary to start from scratch. I’d probably extend on your suggestion by including, Inexperienced, and experienced players in all sized corps, from all the various areas of space to insure the most needs are satisfied in the most integrative way.

thanks for your reply, I’d heart your post but i’m all out of hearts.

6.Sorry for sharing, I know this because my little brother plays second life lol
thanks! your additions are great as well. my only concern is that maybe the old corp ui is somehow load bearing code. XD

I’m pretty sure that it is load baring code and that’s essentially the reason they haven’t touched it. They don’t want to accidentally win EvE themselves.
