Hello my friends, I should probably get to work and make a thread for my re-election campaign.
About Me: Currently I’m most known for the videos I produce on youtube on the eveiseasy youtube channel. My best work by far I feel is the content that I produce aimed at lower SP pilots using cheap fits, such as this video here. I also stream eve online PVP regularly on my twitch.tv channel here. I mostly take part in Solo PVP using Frigate and Destroyer hulls, and feel like I come close to perfectly understanding the solo and small gang PVP meta and scene. I also commentate and help with some behind the scenes things for some eve Esports events, notably, EVE-NT. And have a deep interest in eve tournament play and the eve esports scene in general, My Area of Expertise is most certainly everything that is small-gang PVP in this game.
I am pretty much a turbo nerd when it comes to fitting, stats and the current PVP metagame. I want to thank everyone who voted me onto CSM 12, and would like hope that you once again cast your vote for me. Here is a list of things that I feel like I had huge impact on while working on CSM 13.
The Assault Frigate rebalance, I flew the ships extensively and recorded videos on my youtube channel for each AF, looked at each one in depth, and submitted a list of proposed changes to CCP. I’d like to think that the AF rebalance worked out incredibly well. With most AFs increasing in usage by about 3-4x.
The Lifeblood Expansion, which saw boosts to the Rifter, Corax, Dragoon, Bellicose, Arbitrator and Stabber. And nerfs to the Tristan and Vexor, were driven by my feedback.
The Recent March Balance Patch, Including Jump Fatigue, Aegis Sov Pass, and balance changes. The Battleship Cargo buff and Jump Range boosts is something I’ve pushed for throughout my term
Small Ancillary Armor Repairer Drop Rate Boosts I lobbied hard for this and constantly, it was putting a huge dampener on frigate PVP especially for the race locked alphas at the time.
Discussing 500mn HICs and getting CCP to publicly announce that they are looking for solutions
These are just a few of many small tweaks and little things I’m incredibly proud of having an impact on while I served
I feel like I’m really good at communicating ideas in a presentable way to CCP, focusing on the problems with sensible solutions. A few examples of changes I’ve driven and influenced before I was a CSM member are the T3D balance changes last autumn, I was a member of the T3D group, CCP Fozzie even gave me a shoutout in the thread! You can read some articles I wrote here and here. I also feel like the current command bursts and OGB removal were heavily influenced by the blog I wrote on them here.
My Main focus for CSM 13 is to ensure that the Abyssal Deadspace Mods and Triglavian Collective ships come out in a balanced and viable state, that the metaplasmid (Abyssal) modules do not destroy the faction/deadspace market. Hopefully getting some small FW tweaks, Ship balance as usual and constantly pestering CCP until 500mn HICs are no longer a thing
And of course all your concerns!
FAQ / Other Stuff
- I’m politically neutral, I’ve been in Karmafleet, Pandemic Horde, Dreddit, Brave Newbies, and dozens of other corps in the last 2 years. I don’t pick sides or hold grudges and couldn’t care less about politics. I just go where the wind and the best content takes me. I don’t and won’t drink the kool aid and tow the party line for any particular group. I love being around new players.
- I login, play eve, and undock frequently. I’m someone who experiences eve daily, both in its greatest and worst moments. I’m not a pencil pusher who only plays eve on the forums or in a Jabber client. I’m also primarily a solo player that operates on the ground floor of eve online. I’m not a leader or a high-level player in a big group, so I therefore experience what the vast majority of you experience.
