Hello

http://podlogs.com/krutoj/


Selling myself has always been one of my weakest points, I find that actions speak louder than words and thats the kind of a man I am.

I am Russian and a New Zealand citizen and hence am able to relate to both western and eastern cultures, making it easier for me to understand different game play styles and with Eve being as social as it is, different ways corporations and alliances operate.

So here are a few things about me you should know:
  • Director of the top alliance in Eve (Dotlan ranking)

  • Director and manager of the top renting alliance in Eve

  • Officialy I am in top 3 PVP 0.0 alliances in Eve

  • Supercapital FC for a year with 0 supercapitals lost under my command

  • Pirate

  • T2/Capital manufacturer for Legion of xXDEATHXx

  • Black ops operative

  • 3d party entity

  • Team captain of AT7 and upcoming AT9 (Alliance Tournament)

  • Have written a tone of bug reports and RMT reports to make Eve a better place

  • Supported PVPers with free 30 day PLEX (not just my alliance)



Besides all of those, I am heavily involved in 0.0 Politics, which for a lot of you probably wont mean anything and is frankly irrelevant.

What is currently very relevant to me as a 3 year+ player, who has been through everything this game has to offer, is Low Sec. Now, why would a 0.0 VIP would have any interest in Low Sec? Why its very simple, as it stands, Low Sec space has limited amount of dwellers, pirates left it, carebears left it, anti pirates semi left it. Its just a desert of possibilities that are both beneficial to High Sec and 0.0 population. And if we turn it around then this game could actually become a bit more fun for, pirates who are siting on jita 4-4 now, 0.0 people who like to roam low sec space, for anti pirates and for people who are "carebears", provided that we make it profitable enough.

Sure after reading this, one might say I gone mad, but I havent forgotten about other issues:
  • UI fixing

  • POS bugs fixing

  • Blob warfare fixing through Titan's crowd control

  • Botting and RMT

  • Semi ship rebalancing

  • Sov warfare mechanics

  • Faction Warfare

  • Drone regions purpose?

  • Planet Mining is a job, right?

  • Incursion fixing

  • Future of Eve: Incarna and beyond (DUST)

  • Overall tweaking (market~ore~moon minerals~faction items drop rate etc)



There are a lot of things I would like to change in order to make this game fun for everyone, not just for the chosen few "overlords", and if I am elected, making it the busiest CSM ever for CCP, due to the amount of problems built up over the past 2 years.

Krutoj for CSM.


The guy is extremely knowledgeable about the game and is in a constant struggle with CCP to get stuff fixed. He'll **** them off until they have to do something.

A couple of questions, if you don't mind:

1) What's your stance towards local chat channel in 0.0? Should it be removed, delayed or stay like it is?
2) Destructible outposts - for or against?

Originally by: Krutoj

  • Semi ship rebalancing




  • 3) Will this include continued fight for AF's fourth bonus?
    4) Will this include fixing Nighthawk's slot layout and power grid issues?

    (All questions have already been presented to the previous CSMs. I want to see your position.)

    Those are just a few questions that really matters to me. It would be great if you took a minute or two to elaborate your stance towards those issues. Thanks for your time.

    No thank you for some questions (it almost feels as if people are afraid to ask me any).
    1) I dont feel like it should be changed, as it is now its fine, people still catch raters and I think that changing local might turn 0.0 into a complete bubbled ***gotry, simply because as it is now, few people place bubbles to protect from roamers, but with delayed local, everybody will be using them. And I dont really think thats what people want. And in low sec, am trying to get people to rat in it, return to it, not to have them get ganked with no ability at times to tell if there is a hostile in local. This would only benefit one small portion of people. Probably people like me, who dont rat, dont and can just roam anywhere and any time. Normal people need time to make ISK and to roam and if they cant safely gain ISK, they might not even play the game.

    2) CCP's stance on it is that a lot of old subscribers stuff is in those stations. I know that you can have that stuff transfered away or something, but some are still in the alliances that own those stations and CCP wont take the risks to implement such a feature. I think it could be great and on top of that allowing up to 2-3 stations per system, cost wise it will be like killing a supercarrier. But I just know CCP wont go for it, we can try ofcourse, this is what partly CSM all about ;)

    3) I find AF's fine, I fly Caldari ones though, though Worm vs AF has AF's at a disadvantage in a way. It will simply come down to numbers of people interested in that and the worry of af's replacing interceptors somehow as well. My stance on that however, leave it at that, they are being used for running 2/10 and small roaming.

    4) Nighthawks could use some loving at least the powergrid issue needs addressing for sure imho. Slot layout is by Caldari standards though.

    Phrasing this as neutrally as possible; it's a serious question.

    Many of your renters are known botters. As such, your alliance derives significant income from botting and you have a vested interest in its continuation. Why should anyone believe that you will not go out of your way to hinder or derail any anti-botting measure that might be proposed by the CSM or CCP?

    edit: and a follow-up question. Lowsec is more densely populated than 0.0 or w-space and also more violent, in terms of kills per head of population. On what basis do you say it's broken and in need of fixing, as opposed to just not offering gameplay that you personally enjoy?

    I am sorry i find it very hard to vote for someone who is part of the leadership of alliance which is infested with RMT activities on large scale which have been documented on EVE related forums.

    It is such scale that it is hard to imagine how that same leadership would not be at least partly involved in those activities.



    To put it quite openly if you would get elected i would consider it as an obvious and utter slap in the face to EVE community itself who is disguisted by RMT as a whole because, your ticket would be payed by CCP or actually by us, honest players of EVE.

    For those who trying to blame Krutoj for RMT, I just want to remind you that if he would be caught at this activities, he would probably be banned and couldn't be a CSM candidate.

    So if he is not banned and running here - your charges are groundless.


    I'm pretty sure CCP's internal security can handle to check a 4 years history of a CSM candidate when he applies to the CSM.

    So, STFU or get a proof and petition it.

    To be honest, this whole "calling someone RMTer" deal is fishy. I'm used to politicians that win a certain number of parliament seats not because they have a program or any idea what they should do when they get in there, but they get votes just because they point at other candidates/parties and blabber about how bad they are and what nasty things they have done in the past (without any proof ofc). I always wondered who will fall for that trick, but in the end they still have their seats in the parliament.

    That's why it's best to ask direct questions about candidate's program. Things that matters to you the most.
    So far, I'm very satisfied with his answers to my direct questions.

    I passed a few of your renter alliance systems this week (its not just alliances associated with the DRF its every alliance) and I saw on the gate nearly 30 t1 large bubbles on it to protect a supercarrier. Now to be honest as a roamer and pvper its nearly impossible to catch this ship without a spy due to having to burn out of the bubble. would it be an idea to put a limit of how many bubbles can be placed on a gate or for them to go offline every DT etc.


    Also what are your ideas for fixing the titan blob crowd? limiting the amount of titans in a system at a time?
    Also what are your ideas for fixing RMT and Botting? Permanent bans? Considering supercapitals are the primary source normally of RMT would it be an idea to have the sales of supercaps moderated by CCP?

    Basically, what I've said is that I don't care about what other people talk about some candidate. To measure the quality of a candidate I use only his program and answers to my questions as a measure of quality.

    Someone I might could actually vote for.

    I love those crying about bots, bots are even more prevalent in the North, I mean seriously you ever taken time to look at NPC kills in Tenal, or Vale etc.....no way you can reach those kinds of numbers without bots.

    As Krutoj already pointed out bots don't buy infrastructure, they are not affected by nerfs to plexes, anoms etc. Such nerfs only hurt real players like the 1.1.1 change that caused NPC buildings to no longer count towards military index. That hurt real players not the bots. The slower respawn time on anomalies also hurt real players not botters.

    bots are eveywhere >.<
    however , legion probably rent poor systems for bots for like 14 bil per month with 4-5 belts and bad security status... while nc sells systems for bots just under 3 bil for 16 belts :D

    Hence , russian alliances have income from bots, can't see why they should ban them...unless he wants to ban all the nc bots Twisted Evil


    I don't accuse krutoj in being a bot holder himself.However the renting politics of russian alliances speaks for themselves...Neutral

    Krutoj knows his ****. He corrected me on English Grammar

    A vote for Krutoj is a vote for a strong CSM

    And to all those carping on about botters, I will tell you the exact same thing I tell everyone who raises it ; almost all of nullsec is infested with botters, and trying to use it to smear Krutoj's campaign is pretty irrelevant since he personally takes a zero tolerance stance towards it in his corp and his alliance, and his renters also. I'm willing to bet he's done more to fight botting than anyone who is accusing him of profiting from it has. Sure, botting happens in the Drone Regions, but no more than any other region of space, and it is no more tolerated. It's hard to watch every system you own when your coalition holds around 1000 of them.

    Back from hunting (4 deers).
    Righto so

    @bots:

    I want to tell you a big big, maybe bigger than the moon, secret. The prices of all DR space my alliance is holding, has standardized rental costs. They range from 15m per belt of a low ss system to 55m of the high end ss system ( high end starts from -0.8 to -1.0). Therefore, its impossible for me to charge bot runners MORE, nor do I intend to charge them at all if I know they are botting (petitions petitions..).
    If you are a CEO, you can follow instructions here , register on our site and access the rental system and see for yourself.
    And ofcourse if that doesnt satisfy your interest in bots and RMT (some of you apperently know even more than myself, or do you?), you are free to read evenews24 article on botting, you can write a petition on me, requesting a further investigation :)

    @Callum: From the options you listed ( I already wrote why I dont want to influx the amount of bubbles that are already in systems, nor you could limit their amount at the gate (atleast by Dev standards it would require a lot of coding, including creating a special "grid" around the gate with also having different limit calculated for different size bubbles (you cant treat them equally seeing as enterance gates from empire are full of small ones "drag bubbles" from different solarsystem objects) etc.)), I do like the one about turning off bubbles at DT, but as you know, blob warfare being what it is, involves camping (PR-, D-iz, H-W etc).
    Now, if I recall, you are NC's fleet commander? Now here is a scenario, you camping enemy capitals in station system, you have the staging POS bubbled, you have station bubbled, your forces are camping both (or watching both). DT, after DT, you login, 90% of your fleet is still afk (short downtime), enemy capitals mass undock and ... jump out. Now, how does that make you feel? You spent, 6 hours camping, you didnt let your guys to logoff and go to bed, you kept telling them that they will have a capital fight (or slaughter, which ever you like) and DT robs you of that (I personally had even better case in D-iz, where after DT, the dead cyno jammer was rolled back to online and full hp, that cost campers about 5 dreadnaughts and x amount of carriers (couldnt hotdrop)).

    There are a lot better ways to deal with bots, for example changing rat's AI (the biggest difficulty is that a bot is a macro that mimics your behavior and changes to that will involve ruining someone's way of ISK making as well and by ISK making I mean their ISK/hour ratio). This will definitely be a very hot discussion @ the CSM.
    Also, a bot would warp out without the need of any bubbles, its the actual players who need them, so that wouldnt really do anything.

    Titan blobs, this also relates to giving titans back their AOE damage. But while this is a boost for them and reduction in blobwarfare tactics, its also SHOULD carry a big additional penalty with it. So far penalties include: reduction in hit points, longer immobilization, just massively longer align time and even to the point of it being a self destructing mechanism (aka the Big Boom, didnt want that titan anyway, thanks for 300 killmails). Whatever the choice will be voted on, Titans effect the current 0.0 warfare a lot, their doomsdays work in high lag conditions, their massive ehp allows them to logoff and escape a certain death, etc.
    If I recall correctly ( and I normaly do), CCP kept boasting about Titan changes ( that was exactly pre Dominion), saying they are working on additonal weapons for it (ofcourse never saying what), something to make them still special after the upcoming nerf (Single target Doomsday).

    So its long overdue to give titans said weapon, as well as making them more vulnerable as well as killing blob warfare at the same time.
    Ofcourse this all works in theory, in reality, large alliances might just keep fielding exact number of titans over and over and another tactic will need to be involved, or people will simply not engage (blue balls). Whatever the outcome, its time to do those changes, but making penalty is crucial to be successful in balancing this issue.

    I'll vote for Krutoj, because I think he has a good look on 0.0 and low-sec life. As Alliance Director (renting one and non-renting one) he know a lot about what player want, what they make, how they make their life in EVE.

    And for sure, he have a good experience of the game.

    I still didnīt hear this CSM candidate, as well as UaX death from the same alliance for that matter, saying something along the lines which would include that he does aknowledge large scale existence of boters in his alliance and that he is actively doing everything he can to remove them.

    Absolutely nothing, nada, zero about that has been said by "future CSM memeber"?

    All i read are some murky and pretty hypocritical statements about changing AI of rats against bots and similar nonsence which is, as he knows very well totally useless as todays bots are already at high level of configuration posibilities againt rats and very capable of adapting with future releases.

    Seriously if that is all you have about batling large amount of bot accounts in your alliance i would suggest much more effective and straightforward solution which also goes along with findings published on EVE24 forum.
    This is something i would expect from CSM candidate truly dedicated of solving at least one part of RMT problem:

    Disbanding of Shadow of xXDEATHXx and depriving bot accounts of par of their safe haven, it would be clear action to prove that Krutoj is serious and with true grit about the matter and not some mambo-jambo which is only used to avoid answers on real questions about botting in drone regions.

    Now if i was to see something like that, i would say that Krutoj is dedicated and worthy of my vote and votes of EVE pilots who despise usage of bots and ISK printing which is very evidently happening in drone regions.

    Until then i am not going to vote for Krutoj and give my money for tickets to Iceland, how ever utopian it might sound as chances are still high enough he is going be elected thanks to drone region superblock voting machine.

    Great suggestion, kick 3000+ people out of 0.0, because of the botters (which are probably not even 5% of the alliance).
    The current system of dealing with botters through transactions and petitions is both effective and ineffective. Effective, since it does catch a lot of them in the net and bans them, ineffective, because they create new corporations, let alone accounts. So how would you deal with that?

    Lets summarise this right:
    1. Macros(aka bots) mimic player's behavior

    2. Banning them spawns new corporations of same bots

    3. RMT has market and goes through 3d party sites that are made for it

    4. Macros adapt to any new changes



    As far as I remember, CSM5 were talking about abolishing belts or somewhere along those lines, or making constant mwding to get in range for example for said ravens, I dont know. All the different options that came up, will hurt the main player base more than fixing the problem, as they adapt to it anyway and the top 2 ways they are caught at the moment, still are: petitions and RMT transactions.

    So to answer your question, no I do not have a solid solution to this problem.
