A little About me

I am a 26yr old, Married with one child living in the Lake district in the UK.

I have been playing eve for nearly 7 years now and have experienced pretty much every aspect of the game. From 0.0 alliance warfare and politics to wormhole exploration and Market trading.

I came across eve after I stopped playing another well know internet spaceship game, Freelancer, and although I have taken the odd break from eve over the last 7 years, eve has defiantly always been at the center of my desktop, and will continue to do so for as many years as long as they keep the servers up (or till they blow up)


Why I Love Eve-Online

Most of my family and freinds (those who dont play eve) have said to me many many times over the years ďAre you STILL playing that game? Havenít you completed it yet?Ē Once I have got my head out if my hands I try and explain why I love Eve so much.

The fact that their is no end game, Some say it is being in a top pvp corp in the largest alliance in game, some say it is having massive wealth. But simply their isnít one. I have Missioned, Mined, Pvpíed etc and still I go back to those things from time to time to do them, as a kind of break from what ever my main focus in on at the time. The fact that eve is a massive place where even tho everything is pretty much the same through out each system the community make is so vastly different. And you never quite know what will happen when you jump the next gate or un-dock from a station.

-

This will be the first time I run for CSM, so I am a bit apprehensive about the response I will get from the public, but I feel that I can give something back to the community after playing for so long. So have a look at my website for more information on what I will be doing as CSM

Thank you for taking the time to view this post and my website.

Hi,

What do I think are the problem points in eve?
Well personally I would have to say that there are far too many for a start. A few points that I would have to put forward first just from a personal stand point are Ship Balancing, Factional Warfare, Small gang Warfare and too much progression with half finished product/expansions being placed in game with no view on fixing them or updating them to work with the current player base.
Looking through all the post that are in the Assembly hall, and features and ideas you quickly see a million individual problems with eve, Some confined to individuals wanting the game to work a certain way and then more importantly massive groups of people having the same problems and are being ignored.

How would I fix these problems?
Well that is a very difficult question for me to answer. Simply because the ways I want eve fixed might not be how the majority of eve wants/needs it to be.
The only way for us to fix the problems is to really listen to the players, not just a half arsed post saying put your ideas in this forum and they will be looked at. Iím sure some do but from what I have seen over the years is that they get buried under hundreds of other posts and are then forgotten about.

What I will be doing is organising these posts and cataloging them so rather than get pilled under loads of rubbish they get the chance to be seen by people at ccp and how strongly the players feels about things that NEED to get fixed.

So simply for starters when CCP come to me and ask what I think should be changed within eve, the simple response will be to look at the points that have already been brought up many times in the forums but overlooked.

I hope I have tried to explain out your question a bit, but if you have anything else you need to ask, please do. Iím 100% for working with the players directly rather than reading posts and forgetting about them.

(One last addition, sorry if any spelling or grammatical errors are in my posts. I do try and read through everything and spot things, some times things do slip through)

Thank you for the question.

Who, am I really.

I'm assuming you have read my website and post about me playing for 7 years. I have had quite a few (Mains) as people call them. Some in large 0.0 alliances and some in empire corps etc. The reason I did not run for CSM on one of those characters is I wanted to keep those (lives) separate from my CSM application.
As I said on my website their are too many CSM runners being backed by large alliances, And most of them do just tell their members to vote for their alliance rep. Now in my eyes that isn't helping the general public in eve, its just having someone in a CSM position because you are a large alliance and want a place their.

So who am I, Well I'm Eve Truth, and I intend to represent the WHOLE of eve not just one area.

Thank you again for your question

Doesn't answer my question so you have my not vote.

At least you are aware that you are going to be publicly announced who you actually are IRL by CCP, good luck though.

Sooooooooo, you want us to trust you based on the fact that you told us that you're married and have a kid, rather than the one thing that actually matters when we're talking about reputation in Eve Online, that of course being who you are in Eve Online.

I mean I suppose it's possible that you're genuinely concerned about keeping distance between your obligations to your alliance and your candidacy, but it appears to be much more likely that, you know, you're lying.

I mean it's great and all that you're taking a bold step and trying to get on the CSM but what kind of response are you expecting when you're announcing your candidacy as an alt?

Thank you for your post.

First off, I am distancing myself from my (Main's) In-game. I have quite openly said that I have other characters who do different things in eve. I'm doing this simply because If i put on here my Main's names, then I will be immediately be put under a banner of an alliance or corp.

I'm not running on be half of any corp or any alliance and I do not intend to become a CSM pawn for any of them. Like I have said before I intend to represent EVERY member of eve not just the large power-bases.

As for trust in eve, I completely agree with you. The only way I will earn your trust is to try and answer you questions as well and honest as I can. You have no idea who I am in game, that is a very true. Unless you know one of my mains in an alliance or corp their is very little other ways I can prove myself to you. I have gone down this route of an alt simply to distance myself from any alliance or corp, Probably not the most popular route I could have chosen, but to represent everyone I have to be seen as an Independent individual.

Hope this goes a little way to answer your questions.

I don't see why hiding your main allows people to trust that you are not a pawn of the 0.0 powerbloc attempt to control the CSM.

If anything, it may make people believe the worst.

If I was a pawn of a 0.0 alliance why would I say I wasn't. Surely If I was I would be robbing myself of said alliances votes by not having that link?

...unless of course the alliance is told via other means.

See, either you're lying really poorly about being part of an alliance conspiracy, or you honestly don't realize that an alliance can post in their own forums, which presumably means you have no clue about how alliances work.

I'm not sure which one is a more powerful reason to not vote for you...

Eve Truth
Posted - 2011.03.01 23:13:00 - [15]
 

To be honest you have made a good point. I never thought of it that way.

I know I am not going to be able to stand up and give you a response that will change your mind, and to be honest I'm not sure how I could.

I set out wanting to become a CSM member to try and relay peoples need in eve, not just large power base's. I don't think a game like eve should be represented from one point of view (0.0 alliance warfare etc.) Yes that is a big part of it but their is tens of thousands of players who don't live in 0.0 and are happy with not being their. That doesn't mean they should be excluded from the decision making of their game.

If I was going to get a load of votes from an alliance etc then why try so hard to explain why I want to be CSM? If i'm going to get their votes anyway why not just sit back and when the voting is announced (tomorrow) and then just let them vote for me.

Eve if rife with people looking for hidden meaning behind everything, and that everyone has some alterior motives. I just want to try and help peoples voices be heard rather that them being told to post a thread on the forums and then CCP will looks at it in five years time.

All I can ask is that people will carry on asking questions and if you wish keep on pushing for hidden meanings behind my CSM application please do. I will try and respond to everything that you ask me.

Thank you for your post, and for making me see some things in a slightly different light.

...so this means that you'll be revealing your main, now, right?

Right?

No? You're just going to keep up the flawed path you started on, even if you don't have a valid reason to continue doing so, yet still ask people for more questions and concerns?

You and CCP seem to be made for each other.

Well folks, you've seen it here. This man here is about the closest you can get to the CCP experience. If you're interested in a candidate who will listen to your concerns and then do whatever he wants anyways, look no further then Eve Truth!

Remember folks, a vote for Eve Truth is a vote for stubborn stupidity. Eve Truth for CSM!

...hey if you take the last phrase of the last two paragraphs out of context, you'd get Eve Truth's first recommendation!

I suppose if bad publicity is the best your candidacy can get, that's what you'll be satisfied with.

That's so nice--your stance of "let's just be satisfied with the status quo"... just what people look for in a candidate.

...enjoy your free bump, since apparently those are what you consider campaign successes.

Considering all the "support" you've been getting in this thread, I'm going to go ahead and assume all your in-game mails are coming from your mother to make you feel better.

At least since they're digital, it's not as painfully obvious since they're not all in her handwriting.

Kudos to your mum for giving her son that fantasy of popularity, even if you're 26 already.

Haha, Very good. I can only assume that the people that have been mailing me are people who are interested in getting an answer rather that having to read through pointless trolling by some people on the forums. You don't like me that is clear. I don't mind, you cant please everyone, especially people who set out to be as dramatic and un-funny as you :-)

I dunno, I'd check those mails extra-carefully for giveaways like asides asking why you don't visit your mother more often.

It just seems odd that anyone not related to you would be interested in a candidate as unfocused and bumbling as yourself.

This morning I got an email asking about a few points in eve.

I decided to post the reply I sent to this person here. I thought it would help to see some of my ideas when it comes to certain questions that have been asked.

------------------------------


1. Delayed Local
The idea I have on delayed local would be a tier system. Empire local would have a 30 second delay. This is for movement around when in a war; this gives both sides an advantage and a disadvantage.

Low Sec would be two minutes. Enough time to move through system, dock up and move out again. Or to probe out your targets if there are any.

Null Sec (0.0) would be 5 minutes. This is for the ability of moving large fleets into position and allows the use of covert operations to be effective. For Example. Whatís the use of a covert cyno portal if the people you are attacking see you coming in local chat? I want the ability to get behind enemy lines more easily for small fleets, thus boosting smaller gang warfare.

2. Mining Income
The idea of mining that I have in mind would be to remove all bets from a static position and have them in moveable plex's just like cosmic anomalies. You would be easily able to scan out the belts in your mining barge and hopefully this will disrupt the botting quite a lot. The bots would have to go to planets and then scan mining sites out. Then go to the site, and then get in a position from which to mine etc. Rather than a botter to set up some simple bookmarks for the bot to warp to.

3. Lev 5 in Empire
For level 5 missions to be move to empire they would have to be improved upon quite a lot. One idea would be to implement the new sansha AI to the missions. Making them a lot harder and their fore making them a group thing to do. This way a larger payout would be split to multiple people. The overall payout per person would be slightly larger that lev 4's but the LP would be quite a lot larger.

4. More Vulnerable Wormholes
Longer Lifespan for wormholes. Plus the restriction of pos's in certain class of wormhole. Class 1 and 2 would be small Pos only. Class 3 would me small and Medium Pos's only and class 4 and 5 would be all types of pos. This would make corps/people have to manage larger scale operations in wormholes with more pos's to do what they would normally do in one single large pos in a c1 wormhole.
The attackers would then be able to actually attack a corp in a c1 c2 c3 easier. But rather than just attacking 1 pos they would have to take out multiple small or med towers to completely eradicate a corp from a WH.

5. Sound Alerts in Channels
Sound alerts in channels would be a simple thing. You can set channels to make sound once another person talks. Also a separate noise would be played if your name is linked in a channel. The sounds would have to be set to each channel individually to avoid the massive amount of beeping 20 channels would create if you had them all se to making a noise.

-----------------------

This is just a few of the questions that have been put to me so far.

Whats your position on.
pos mechanics, I.E. how very little works right.
The "Flogging the dead horse" thread has lots of support.
And has been ignored, by ccp.
I think people who run for the csm,
should keep there alliance/corp roles seperate from their csm roles.
The csm should not be a place for metagaming.
Or ego boosting

The number of roles needed to enable jobs to be done.
public use is an option but it dosen't work.
Alliance use isn't as easy as it could be.

I do agree POS roles do need a good look at. A few points I think should definatly be lookd at are.

The condensing or roles, maby only 3 or 4 types,
The ability for Public use as you said.
The ability to set the use of certain things on the pos to use standings rather than a password, ie. jump bridges and control of pos guns.

As a CSM rep I would defiantly put forward the pos revamp idea. So if that happens I would defiantly like some more input on how pos's and their uses effect you.

Only a few days left on the CSM elections. Thank you if you have already voted for me and another thank you for all the people who have mailed me over the past few weeks. I really have had a lot more mails than I expected to get. But all have been answered and your ideas taken down.

Just because the election is coming to an end doesn't mean you need to stop mailing me. Please continue with your questions and ideas for the game.
