MY EVE ONLINE STORY
I am Phantomite from Same Great Taste, a Lowsec Solo, Small gang, Big fleet and Capital PvP veteran.
I have had a long history grown natrually from a wide-eyed newbie, attracted by stories of huge battles and lucrative opportunities for power and gain.
Almost immediately I became addicted to PVP - cheap frigates fitted terribly, making friends that I still have from day one to this day who helped me to understand.
Over the years I moved from solo and small gang to join larger organisations, growing with them, growing to lead myself as an FC, growing to understand fittings and tactics to create my own doctrines and strategies.
I stand for adding complexity back into areas it has been removed, and rewarding attackers and defenders for careful planning and smart execution.
The players need a fresh advocate who brings a deep knowledge of ship fittings, fleet command tactics and wider strategy to CCP through the CSM.
Choosing me for CSM will give valuable, independent non-bloc experience in these areas where there is historically a balance tipped towards the issues favoured by very large groups.
Stagnation from years of very few or very small changes have left the game stale and static. Players are promised epic wars on a giant scale in trailers but arrive in a universe where there is no incentive to venture beyond your home, as there are no rewards.
There’s no incentive to attack to gain something valuable, and nothing of value to lose to prompt a violent defense.
I have been writing my thoughts on specific aspects of the game on my website - here’s some of the articles you’ll find at https://www.whispo.us/
Where’s my war: Content Drivers - on the loss of the biggest content drivers that used to create ultra violent conflict
Where’s my war: Meaningless lines on the map - on the effect of Upwell structures on FW, the nutrients that spur lowsec activity
Where’s my 4D chess: Everyone gets a car! - on what we lost when we moved from Triage Carriers to FAX
Where’s my 4D chess: Jobs for all or jobs for one? - on the loss of depth in Capital and Supercapital balance
Where’s my 4D Chess: Location, location, location! - on what we lost upon the removal of limitations on structure location

Vote for my fresh perspective. I’m ready to push hard for a game that everyone can see improvements in.
You can expect me to push hard to give players much more ability to benefit from clever gameplay.
