I love EVE for its complexity. The EVE we love is one big sandbox, creating the player driven market, the glorious PVP, and most of all, the infinite enjoyment you get from making someone's game worse. I stand for you, the Griefers and Scammers. Without constant harassment, EVE would be WOW in space. I stand by your goals for the betterment of our kind. We must stand together against the oppressive neo-carebears. A vote for Manalapan is a vote for Scammers and Griefers everywhere!

Yes, that's right. I support griefing and scamming. You may have heard of me from the DBANK swindle, where 600B went directly into my pocket. The ability to accomplish such things makes this game stand out from the rest. Very few things are more enjoyable in EVE than ruining someones day and seeing tears and rage. I am not here only to promote ruining someone's first hulk, though. Balance is necessary, and over my time in EVE, I've seen that many things need change. Some of which has been done, some are partially done, and some are yet to be done. This balance is what I want to bring to the table.

Throughout the next week I will be extensively posting on my "Manalapan for CSM Blog." Check it out to see my take on the ideas that have been circulating in my mind, or ones seen on the Assembly Hall. As I get comments and requests to consider some ideas differently, I will consider my priorities to be better reflect the needs of the players. After all, a spot for Manalapan on CSM is a spot for YOU.

I plan on spending a lot of time in game to be available for questions and discussions. Feel free to message me in game or out of game, via the blog. I have also created a private channel “Manalapan.” I will do my best to be available during the running for CSM and if elected, available during my term with CSM.

Hello Manalpan,

I must say that some of your ideas have me very concerned. For one thing, what experience do you have with the PvE side of the game (which accounts for approximately 70% of the playerbase in this game)?

That said, I don't understand why you want to kick players from the NPC corp within one month. Most of the veterans inside NPC corps are the very ones educating the newer players, since Rookie Chat is such a pain to use. If this happened, this game would stop gaining new members and start losing them. CCP isn't that stupid.

NPC corps already have many other disadvantages, such as the new 11% tax (which takes a huge chunk out of most PvE activities), the inability to share aggro with other fleet members, the inability to erect a POS, etc.

Some of your other ideas concern me too, but to a lesser extent than the above one. Being involved in a wardec myself on an alt, I can understand the RR nerf. However, your idea for a corpse launcher is pretty ridiculous. It sounds like something Mazziliu would bring up (monster trucks replace titans, et al).

I'm sorry, but I cannot back a 'joke' candidate, and that is what you appear to me to be. Please list your qualifications for the job and areas of trouble with the game's mechanics so the people can make a more informed choice on yourself.

The PVP NPC Corporation is a very underdeveloped idea and will not be presented to CSM. It is an idea for the future that definitely needs some discussion for it move forward (or be stopped however the people feel about the idea I will follow). One my bigger vendettas against NPC corp only players is the RR which has a new fix proposed. The concept was basically a means to help CCP push its social group player goals instead of leave players alone in NPC corps. If a group of friends only want to mission in the game I feel they should make their own corporation not protect themselves within an NPC Corp. This goes for things like freighter pilots and the like should not be hiding in an NPC corp.

Yes, the corpse launcher is strictly for amusement. I wont really be pushing it in CSM (Am updating the blog to reflect its position is my agenda), but it represents a really easy but simple way to entertain yourself with a morgue of corpses.

I've known Manalapan now for a couple of months. He's very honest, even though many think the contrary, and he is also quite charitable. I personally have seen him donate over 1 billion isk worth of True Sansha POS to a struggling noob alliance, and also several hundred million isk worth of POS structures to Habitual Euathanasia. He has helped me personally with ship fittings and mission running, as I have also seen him do for others. He has great financial knowledge, as he proved while running Dynasty Bank, and also serious personal concern for the way EVE progresses. Anyone who doesn't vote Manalapan for CSM not only is a daisy fresh rookie, but also making the single biggest mistake of their gaming lives (with the exception of one Champion Miner). So look at what the other candidates are running for, and look at the age of their characters. I guarantee you will find neither a more deserving, nor qualified candidate for CSM. Manalapan, you have my vote.

I love the corpse launcher, it's exactly the sort of thing eve needs to stop it becoming bland.

Being "charitable" with others people money is not quite that hard.

But than again he demonstrated that he has no technical knowledge at all, because that's how DBank was ruined (security flaw -> database tampering -> Man unable to undo the changes). This guy is not even capable of creating a working signature link. Do you really want such a (technically) clueless guy to tell the direction of where EVE is going?
