The Mittani thinks he's good at managing people.

But let's face it. Running Goons isn't about leadership but more about being a Kindergarden Nanny.

Throwing a hissyfit and tantrum wont work with Devs and reading his garbage I see that's the only tactic he will be using.
Voting for a Goon, any Goon is something only the mentally challenged will do.

Ergo other Goons.

You do realize that someone who throws 'hissy fits' would be irreverently mocked by goons, and that as a result that can't possibly describe The Mittani. Right? Or do you have no idea who goons are, outside of "some mean guys who scam people," in EVE Online, the popular Internet space ship game?

Nicely said, although Mittani never did lead Goons, until he got fired from his job which was only recently, all the work put into making Goons something was done years ago when Mittani had little input, ofc after years of brown nosing and previous directors getting sick of him he decided to take charge become a renter in the north and now believes he achieved something from becoming a renter.

Here, and the linked article is full of venom and madness. You can't really think CCP is going to work with one that does so much against them.

CSM will never have control over CCP, period. Mittani wants to go to Iceland to fight CCP, that's just a silly thing to do. You hate too much, dude.


i've met chronotis. he did a ******ed thing with the tech bottleneck; it is the case. he's a nice enough guy, but the implementation of the dys/prom tweak was shortsighted, unless you're part of the tribal liberation force.

I have seen many drives of capsuleers.
Their daily struggle for some form of respect.

Respect from the Corporation they are part of.
Respect from the Alliance they are part of.
Respect from the Corporation or Empire they work for.

Yet the respect they are longing for isn't more than a mere smokescreen.

I for one hold no allegiance towards an Empire, corporation or socidty.
My sole concept is comprissed around the never ending value of Isk.

You pilots, corporations and Alliances have the Isk I crave.
Since you will not be parting with that Isk voluntarely I will come and get me what is mine.
I will come to your systems, I will disrupt your normal routine of making money.
I will be the annoying bug in your pelt which you can't get rid of, no matter how hard you try to scratch.

The only way to get me to move will be a medicine called ISK. The more I get the more you might get a say in where I head next.

Don't try to reason with me. I don't care for reason.
Don't try to expect mercy. Mercy is for the weak.
Don't try to sway me into your cause. We don't share a cause.

So be prepared you ancient behemoths. Extortion Incorporated will be dropping bombs near you soon.
And if you really make me mad I might get some friends to drop by.


the hilarious bit is that, for all your words about how smart and cunning and ~dangerous~ you are, you're not on a single killmail anywhere.

umm maybe not and I rly CBA to go through the KB's right now, however the second part is true and you can pretty much ask any IT member, the alliance was long dead before your coalition even invaded, and some1 even told me that the only reason they fought you for the 3 odd months was to get their supers in delve build, after that happend x13 and finfleet and dice packed their bags and left. I'm sure a "spy master" like yourself would know that...

Sadly enough you actually think Goons matter. And even worse if you think Goons are known for being mean and political effective.
The only thing Goons excelled at is being utter ******s who's only pleasure was and still is ruining the game for others.
And getting alts into other alliances to then expose their forums etc isn't political, it's just another proof how pathetic people are who need to metagame to the extreme cause else they might actually have to play the game.

Sadly enough I am not allowed to post my personal opinions with my main due to some higher echelons are afraid you might throw one of your hissyfits.

Also, thinking killmails is the only part of playing EVE just proves once again your narrowmindedness.

And yes we are well aware of your capabilities and that's the main reason why people outside Goons should avoid even thinking of voting for you.
Goons will vote for you, no worries. We all know Goons can't think out of the box, Proof enough with the flood of unimaginary copy paste job scams in Jita.

Hey there Mittins.

Thank you for reminding people of what the CSM really is and, just as importantly, what it isn't. The people who promise to fix everything and turn Eve into a paradise overnight are full of it and have no idea what they're really doing.

Quote:
I believe that it is time to transform the CSM by electing a hardline player representative that will forge the CSM into a strong, united body that can fight for the playerbase and shield it from idiocy.
How exactly do you plan to do this? The CSM has zero power. CCP can abolish it on a whim. CCP doesn't answer to the CSM, it's the other way around.

Being manipulative is a wonderful skill to have, and I have zero doubt that you are highly skilled considering what you have accomplished in game, but I don't see any leverage here.

Your presence on the CSM with this kind of agenda - the promise to be a bastard - could do more harm than good and cause CCP to take the CSM even less seriously.

Unfortunately you sound a lot like the New York union lawyers I have worked with whose style is extremely confrontational. In the end, BOTH sides lose, and the only person who wins is the lawyer when he walks away with a gob of cash.

Having someone so iconic to Eve on the CSM is appealing. You're obviously very intelligent and capable with an excellent knowledge of the game of Eve, and the meta-game of Eve. But, with this kind of attitude I'm afraid of what the end result will be.

Perhaps unexpectedly, I actually think that Mittens would be a very valuable asset to the CSM. He will undoubtedly be voted in, because of the sheer power of the block voting sytem he's employing.

My concern is more that whilst Mittens would be a valuable asset to a balanced and diverse CSM, Goonswarm and the NC have instead cooked up their little plot to fill the CSM with carbon copy clones of themselves for in game advantage, hence why I felt duty bound to stand.

Mittens? Yep, he'd be good. The whole cynical CSM takeover thing? Not chill.

You're missing the point.

It took a combined Goonswarm and NC blob to take down BoB 2 years ago despite the alliance being disbanded the war still lasted for almost a year.

Now mitten's mighty "powerbloc" took somewhat 4 months to beat the same guys. I mean IT didn't even fight for delve. Now this is just my opinion, but it seems more like that mitten's coalition was kicking a dead dog, calling that a victory is just.. well... pathetic. He spoke of, I quote, "one of the meanest and most politically effective powerblocs", I ask on what bases is he making that claim.

Do we need a reminder of what happened to the original Goonswarm alliance? Admitted The Mittani didn't run that one, but he is a goon after all, cut from the same wood as all the other goons.

An excellent question, so good that I'll drop my no-caps tildeposting gimmick for a moment to answer it.

I don't think that table-pounding accomplishes anything; when I promise to be a bastard, that doesn't mean that I will abandon the subtlety and cunning with which I've murdered my way across EVE for so long with. I'm a student of influence; I've studied pretty much anything involving the topic, from the Cialdini books to behavioral economics. I do intend to be a zealous advocate and attempt to grow the power of the CSM, but that doesn't mean throwing tantrums or behaving in an unsubtle or counterproductive way. All the same, I've made my intentions and ultimate goals clear - to be a hardline player advocate and quash idiocy - but as I've mentioned in several posts in this thread, the methods involved will be circumstantial.

It might help assuage your concerns if you know that my political idols are Sir Humphrey Appleby and the 'Master of the Senate'-era LBJ (incidentally, anyone with an interest in power and manipulation should read the Robert Caro biographies of Johnson, immediately). Beyond that, I've downed a tremendous amount of alcohol with CCP staffers over the years, I'm not going to suddenly start behaving like Nikita Krushchev banging my shoe on a podium.

From the outset, I've said that I'd be perfectly happy to see representatives from hostile alliances on the CSM; the issue isn't who is shooting who in the game, but competence. What you don't seem to understand is that the issues confronting nullsec - friendly or hostile - are the same. A competent nullsec rep from Awagon, such as Seleene, or from the DRF, such as Krutoj or Death, isn't going to have a wildly different perspective than your pet conspiracy theory.

But the CSM is less about upvoting proposals (which is presumably what you're worried about in conspiracy land, a voting bloc) in this day and age, because CSM1-CSM5 have upvoted pretty much any issue the playerbase can think of by now; the real issue is the goddamned backlog, where all those player-approved proposals have gone to die.

sounds really like a populist try to ride the discontent.
We don't need "charismatic leaders" on the CSM, we need analytic and reasonable people to do a long and tiring work, like Trebor did.

If you are elected and you act as you tell us, we are going to miss CSM5, and all what they did.

No, but the solution is not to vote one that says that "I'm a real man, I'm going to fix it", and then when someone says "How!", he replies with

"oh, don't worry, I'm going to be subtle and act circumstantially, because you know, I am Mittani thus I can".

You're going to yell, silently.
You will stare them, and change their mind, because Mittani can.

Or you're just going to act as every good CSM candidate.

For those not familiar with British comedy shows of a certain age, Sir Humphrey appeared as a civil servant in the series Yes, Minister and later Yes, Prime Minister. He was an arch-manipulator who had as his main aim the protection of his own special interests (the power of the civil service) and whose primary tool for achieving this aim was the use of misdirection and sometimes deceit on the democratically elected politicians he worked alongside.
Quote:

Sir Humphrey represents, in many ways, the perfect technocrat. He is pompous, arrogant, elitist and regards his less-well-educated minister with some contempt. He frequently uses both his mastery of the English language and even his superb grasp of Latin and Greek grammar to perplex his political master and to obscure relevant issues under discussion. However, his habit of using language as a tool of confusion and obstruction is so deeply ingrained that he is sometimes unable to speak clearly and directly even in circumstances in which he honestly wishes to make himself clearly understood. He genuinely believes that the Civil Service knows what the average person needs and is the most qualified body to run the country, the joke being that not only is Sir Humphrey, as a high-ranking Oxford-educated Civil Servant, quite out of touch with the average person but also that the Civil Service identifies whatever is 'best for Britain' as being 'best for the Civil Service'.


Naturally, The Mittani would heroise such a figure.

The Mittani: Considering that a great many people live in HiSec and LowSec and are naturally drawn towards candidates that will push the issues they care about, rather than what the giant powerblocs have to concern themselves with?

Don't get me wrong; you guys gotta push for what you guys need (jumpbridges and supercapital fixes and whatever else giant billions-of-ISK-per-month alliances in nullsec have to deal with), but let's face it, this crisis that you're perceiving with the jumpbridges et al, even if it really is this giant game-changer that's a terrible idea, really means very little to the average Empire player who's wondering when we'll be able to get some team PvE missions in HiSec that don't require super-duper ships or guys involved in Factional Warfare that are just disappointed with how much better it could be or the industrialist with the myriad concerns that they deal with.

I asked another 0.0-focused Goon CSM candidate the same question, and his response did make sense given the platform he's running on. It seems, however, that your platform focuses more on the CSM itself than it does for the game.

So, when the rest of Eve looks at The Mittani running for CSM, and consider the benefits of voting you in, what should we be thinking about?

Well, when you put it that way...

Maybe I should be clearer. I understand that making wild empty promises to pander to our dreams is silly. There are indeed many candidates promising those in High- and Low- Sec players "oh I'll fix this for you and improve this and do that", but those aren't the people I (or any other thinking Eve citizen) consider as better options.

It's the other candidates who recognize the need to be realistic, but as Empire-experienced and Empire-dwelling players also understand and are directly interested in improving the parts of the game that those who aren't in Null-Sec are very concerned about.

Because, let's face it: even if The Mittani and Co. fix the CSM, they're going to try as hard as possible to address the issues that concern them most--the things that are the biggest and most unbalanced issues... for them. That's all well and good, and the 0.0 people should have every reason to vote for him (them?). However, the rest of us are ideally looking for someone who isn't about making empty promises, but at least has the concerns of Empire players dear to their hearts.

So sure, even if we've "seen the light" and are disillusioned about CSM candidates who promise to "fix game feature X" and "improve game detail Y", we still look at The Mittani and see... someone who cares very much about Eve... as it applies to him living in 0.0.

So in this context (and not "promise to fix this or that"), I ask: In what ways would the average Empire player see the benefits of voting for you? How will a CSM with The Mittani in it help alleviate the issues that are relatively unique to the Space of gate guns and CONCORD?

So in this context (and not "promise to fix this or that"), I ask: In what ways would the average Empire player see the benefits of voting for you? How will a CSM with The Mittani in it help alleviate the issues that are relatively unique to the Space of gate guns and CONCORD?


It's been stated multiple times that the CSM isn't for solving issues or really bringing them up with CCP (Again, the massive backlog). It's a sounding board that CCP bounces ideas off of. Also, we know how Empire currently is as most of us have alts that live in Empire along with ours in 0.0 (This is because you can't live in 0.0 without Empire due to the currently broken mechanics of 0.0) so it's not like anyone would advocate CCP trying to dismantle Empire or nerf it.

That may be true, but I have serious issues if this is the entirety of The Mittani's official stance regarding my concerns.
