Is Tchell even still alive? I've not seen a post from him/her/it in over a week.

I hadn't put much thought into the CSM till you came around- a (keyword:) serious canditate to represent the scoundrels. Pompous is fun and all- but I'm glad C&P has a candidate who'll take the job seriously.

Couple Questions:
On Falcons/ECM: I like the ideas you've expressed so far (stacking penalty, changing the strength bonus, etc.). Would you consider nerfing ECM range? Falcons should have similar range to other Recon Ships (40-70km, skill dependant), so that it becomes necessary to fit some sort of GTFO-mechanism, and you can't dedicate every med-slot to ECM. Your thoughts?


Falcons/Rooks don't have an alternate EWAR method. I feel that nerfing their range in addition to what I've suggested would cripple them somewhat. Unlike Rapiers/Pilgrims/Arazus they can't really add anything extra to the gang by moving in from long range to close/medium range either in terms of additional DPS (negligable at best from the caldari recons) or secondary EWAR.

Quote:

On Gate Camps: I don't think that the system is horribly unbalanced at the moment for gatecampers, but I'd like to see sentry guns only targeting ships, and not drones. This would allow every class of ship an equal opportunity to camp gates (you're talking to a die-hard dominix pilot, so I might be biased). Curious to hear your opinion on this.


While on several occassions while on the gate in a smaller ship I have found it useful to launch my drones as 'chaff' I would like to see sentries agress ships only, drones are expensive after all.

Hi there, i don't know you as well as i'd like to, but here is one concern of mine im wondering if you'll cover,

I'm mainly a solo and occasionally very small gang pvp'er, i am in low sec ONLY (and been living there for months now) for heart pounding fights, loose or win doesn't matter as long as the fight is good. Over the years pvp has gone more and more into blob warfare and ships that will ruin a solo/small gang day (ECM)(you gotta agree that engaging 1 vs 5 or more and getting a falcon (or sometimes even 5Shocked) decloaked on you is just booring), will you support and maybe try and get something done to encourage more small scale warfare?

even if you wont support that, you'll most likely still have my vote, since anything for pvp'ers will most likely benefit me one way or another.


I share your pain. My suggested ECM changes are located here. You can't really encourage small scale combat without introducing instanced or size related (FW?) 'battlegrounds' which really go against the grain. It's human nature, most people will be out to win with minimal loss. If that means hotdropping a ratting drake with twelve carriers then so be it. There's very little you can do about the game mechanics, it's more of an 'issue' with player attitudes. I've blobbed and ganked and been unhappy when I've gone out solo and been blobbed and ganked. It's just a matter of finding people with a similar attitude (few and far between).

New C&P CSM candidates are like the new merc threads now.

Tchell is in it for tchell, that much is apparent. As if that wasn't off-putting enough, the worst part is he's not even remotely representative of the denizens in this fine forum of miscreants.

If you want to run, you should run. But unless you can pull some slam-dunk election kung-fu, you're just going to further split an already splintered voting base.

Hopefully all of C&P (&L) gets behind a single candidate so they have a chance of getting in, that candidate should be Lark

I have to concede that despite 'corporate differences' I would certainly vote for Lark as he at least has an idea of what he is talking about and appears to have some kind of vision insofar as to the role (unlike some [Cat'o'ninetails]).

I have read your blog (very kind of someone to make that for you) and think your ideas are well thought out, well presented and balanced.

Good luck with it, Lark. I for one, hope you make it.

Kras.

This thread has 3000 reads, the most of any 'so and so for CSM' thread on the front page or second.

I hope this is being noted by CCP Question

Hello, fellow candidate. I come to you with a proposal.

It is now clear that our opponents in this upcoming senate are allying together into a carebear political party to strengthen their cause. To maintain the balance of terror in Eve Online, we who hear the call of blessed grief must also band together into a cruel triad, in order to push through our vile agenda. What say you?

Sounds cool. Do you think you'll be able to stay sober long enough during the first day at least to make a good representation of yourself and your constituents only to rock up with me for the second day's business hungover, riding on a reindeer while munching on his ancestor's gonads?

Seriously though, CSM is (apparantly) srs business, if I do get elected and rock up to Iceland and it is a pile of toss, CCP have no interest in anything we're putting forward etc then I'll happily go and get trollied (or as trollied as my funds and 7 pints take me), share a bottle of whisky and the cheapest hooker in town. However, if the staff are genuinely receptive to the ideas presented then I'll probably have to restrain my primal urges.

Larkonis, you can't go getting drunk juzt becauze CCP ignorez you. If CCP ignorez you, it would behoove you to rally C&P to your cauze (that of reprezenting us pew pew playerz of variouz attitudez towardz pillage). In other wordz to paraphraze some famouz sayingz, "Don't give up the Talk" or "Never Surrender, Never Give Up" or "Keep on Talking, Keep on Talking". Remember if elected, you are not alone, your conztituency will be uz, your power baze, priwatz, privateerz, scammerz, and other fun loving EVE citizenz, and we will support you. We know you don't have a magic wand to make CCP do anything, but you can hopefully get them to lizten to your and our legitimate concernz.

Greetings Larkonis,

I'd like to know what your thoughts are on those we refer to as carebears? How do you feel about us? Love us? Hate us? Would you like to see us gone from the game?

I read your blog and it seems like you want to change high sec to benefit the predators more. Is this correct? You seem to be willing to make high sec more dangerous and willing to nerf its rewards. How far are you looking to? If elected CSM, how would us carebears benefit from your election?

I think right now the mechanics in highsec with regards to the predator/prey dynamic (ie suicide ganking, can flipping etc) are pretty much bang on and I think a shift in either direction would be a bad thing. You are not going to get ganked if you pay attention and use a suitable ship, you are going to get ganked if you AP in a T1 hauler with a bil's worth of loot. Although I loathe RL comparisons... If you absolutely have to transport a load of gold and gems and monies through Compton or some other notorious district of a large city you're going to do it in an armoured car at speed, not at a leisurely pace on your bicycle with the goods overflowing out of panniers.

Yes, I would like to see the rewards of hisec tweaked. For starters, given the uselessness of mining in lowsec I do believe that T1 loot drops from missions need a nerf, restrict them to named only. This gives the T1 producer a boost, he's not being undercut by mission runners dumping 6 months worth of goods on the market at ridiculous prices 'I mined it/shot it, therefore it is free hurf durf durf'. Although there will still be the flow from drone missions and rats I'm sure CCP can find it in their heart to tweak the alloy refine rates too. I realise that if you nerf rewards too much then it will just drive people away, CCP has pretty much made it clear that level 4's in hisec were a mistake but now that they're in place they can't really do much without several thousand emo rage quits.

Ref 'Carebears'. In my mind a Carebear is someone who out and out avoids confrontation, either in battle, in chat or on the market. I know plenty of mission runners and industrialists who are able to put up a decent fight if need be... These people are not carebears. In my time I've run across a lot of industrialists trying to get a foothold into lowsec. Many of them were receptive and we traded protection for goods and services... These are not carebears. The ones who'd ignore me, block me, call me a dirty pirate because of preconceptions and would then procede to be milked for all their worth by us as we pulled down their towers and ganked their haulers. These people were carebears. I have no issues with industrialists. These people are part of the game. I couldn't invent manufacture a T2 ship or build a Carrier. We'd be pretty boned if there were no more industrialists. If you want real representation for industrialists then vote one of the other candidates. However, I've got a pretty level head, I'm more aware of PVP dynamics and the knock on effects of any changes than most people. I realise the harm that moving level 4's out of hisec would do as much as the harm of moving level 5's to hisec or buffing concord even more.

It's not a case of what 'I' can do for carebears. I have a few good ideas but I am no idea factory. If issues are raised that I think are fair and balanced then I'll support them. If not... well... I won't. I am a pirate and a scoundrel but if things aren't kept balanced then I will run out of targets pretty quick.

In response to the sickening TAKE CARE platform shaping up might I suggest a similar platform for the miscreants and malcontents around here? You could even call it....

Cool beans, but then I'd require a 2 term CSM member to adopt me and use me as a mouthpiece to push his/her agendas through.
