WHITE TREE FOR CSM!
www.WHITETREEDESIGN.net


WHITE TREE has been put forward as Test Alliance Please Ignore's Council of Stellar Management candidate after undergoing a strict preliminary process which was designed to accommodate every individual in TEST's desire to submit themselves as potential CSM candidates. From there, TEST conducted a democratic poling process in which White Tree was the victor.
As a result, Test Alliance Please Ignore has submitted White Tree as their chosen Council of Stellar Management candidate for the 2011 Council of Stellar Management elections.
As a player, White Tree has a long history in EVE. Starting his EVE Career in 2007, and maintaining a linked relationship with the community as well as monitoring the development of the game ever since.
A capable and elegant individual, White Tree is able to tackling problems head on. Working with others can help to find solutions to the problems of the average and the advanced pod pilot.


But we need YOUR help!

The problems that affect the game that we have chosen to address here cross the lines of Alliances, Corporations, System Security and beyond. Only by working together can we achieve the goals that will help make EVE Online a better game.

So don't forget to vote for White Tree as not only TEST's CSM candidate, but also YOURS!

~~~PLATFORMS~~~

~ Armor Improvements
PLAYERS will naturally begin to separate and throw out systems and tactics which simply do not work in Player Versus Player combat. And in today’s fast paced small-gang and sovereignty warfare, Shields dramatically outclass Armor on the battlefield.
The reason for this is quite simple: The penalties for Armor are dramatically more restrictive for the penalties for Shields. Shields offer a signature radius increase in exchange for their increase in effective health or regeneration rate, while Armor offers a significant penalty to maneuverability and speed in exchange for their benefits.
Given that the Gallente faction simultaneously uses the shortest ranged weaponry in the game, and fly some of the slowest ships, an entire faction of the game is unable to competitively compete in player versus player combat.
WHITE TREE proposes a reduction or an alteration in the nature of Armor penalties which would allow for greater speed and maneuverability on the playing field.

~ Hybrid Improvements
HYBRID weaponry, more specifically Railguns in this instance - have long since fallen out of favour with the playerbase, and admittedly, out of favour with CCP. It's time to really push for an examination of the nature of Railguns as an effective weapon in Player Versus Player and Player Versus Environment combat.
Both the Caldari and Gallente factions make use of Hybrid weaponry, though to many they appear to be considered a secondary weapon. The Caldari make use of their Missiles as their primary means of offensive might, and some might believe that the Gallente make use of Drones. However, recent developments in the Dominion expansion have made Drones not only undesirable on the battlefield, but also potentially dangerous given the weight they load onto the servers.
WHITE TREE proposes an increase in Railgun tracking and a slight increase to their damage to bring them in line with other long-range weaponry, and believes the proposed changes to Armor will significantly improve the viability of Blasters.

~ Skill Improvements
SKILLS and training times in EVE haven't been examined in a long time. The most recent alteration was the removal and refunding of learning skills to the playerbase. The first step in what could be a line of improvements to the nature of skills and the way they interact with each other in EVE Online.
Improvements to skill descriptions, as well as improvements to the ways in which skills are structured, reduction in pre-requisites for certain skills and reductions in training time modifiers for other skills that are outdated.
WHITE TREE plans to explore new ideas for the improvement of skills such as potential spendable SP rewards for certain types of missions and other in-game activities. In addition to experimenting with new ideas alongside CCP and the CSM.

~ Caldari Improvements
WHILE the Drake may have become the backbone of support fleets throughout New Eden, much of the rest of the Caldari Player Versus Player options remain mediocre and unattractive. The Tengu, while a powerful ship, has a price barrier which puts it out of reach for the humble pod pilot.
The Caldari Tech 2 line, specifically the Cruiser Tech 2 variants not only lack power, but the ability to act as competitive Player Versus Player combat platforms. In spite of their apparent advantage to be found in using Shields which grants increased manoeuvrability over their Armor using counterparts.
WHITE TREE aims to improve the Tech 2 variants of Caldari vessels by increasing their Player Versus Player viability in small-gang and sovereignty warfare. Improvements to slot layouts, bonuses and working in conjunction with proposed Railgun improvements will offer the Caldari a brighter future in offensive warfare.

~ Starbase Improvements
STARBASES have long been a staple and enjoyable component in EVE Online. Nothing is greater than being able to set down a structure in a game which can be seen by all and is semi-permanent.
However: The Player owned Starbase system could use a dramatic facelift, and its dated interface system is potentially confusing to players both young and old.
WHITE TREE proposes the development of a modular system similar to ship fitting layouts which is modified in a fashion also similar to the Tech 3 cruiser line. This would act to alter both the function and the physical appearance of the Starbase. In addition to proposing experimental features such as passworded docking clamps for Supercapital class vessels which would allow players who own these sorts of ships to leave them in relative safety and get into the down n' dirty gameplay they once enjoyed.

~Balancing Improvements
BALANCING problems continue to plague EVE Online long after its release. And its understandable that a simple change in the mechanics of the game can have dramatic consequences throughout the world of New Eden.
But its important to understand that while something being slightly overpowered is one thing, to have entire factions of ships be dramatically superior or inferior in comparison to another is unacceptable.
WHITE TREE intends to propose dramatic improvements to the Caldari and Gallente Player Versus Player viability. And to help polish and buff out the outstanding and almost indomitable strengths of certain faction class warfare vessels, some of which have almost entirely invalidated certain classifications of vessels in Player Versus Player combat.

~New Player Improvements
CURT SCHILLING of SOE once called EVE Online players 'Real Men!' in terms of their gaming prowess and dedication. And while the sentiment is flattering, most EVE Online players want to share the incredible and progressive gaming experience with the rest of the world. We're excited about our game, and we can't wait to get everyone involved.
But there are still real barriers that every new player must overcome before they begin to make their way in the wide world of New Eden. As a member of a corporation that actively attempts to steer its new player in the right direction, WHITE TREE understands the challenges facing every freshly awoken pod pilot in New Eden.
WHITE TREE proposes continued improvements to the New Player experience in EVE Online. Making the learning tutorials not only enjoyable but active and engaging with rewards that keep the player interested. Showing them in their infancy the side of New Eden that older players have come to love. This in conjunction with proposed skill changes will come together with the help of CCP and the CSM to improve EVE Online for everyone.

So in a year where CCP has to come up with some sort of link between Dust 514 & EVE, where Incarna needs to be delivered AND iterated upon, where the spaceships environment has major issues with several niches already clear to be iterated on, and where CCP has a list of polishing things on the side already worked out ... you expect any of that to even be theoretically considered by them ... in the roadmap they have already done well ahead of these elections ... yeah ...

Look, be realistic, please. Best possible scenario was already demonstrated for these things, collect and filter via crowdsourcing, pass to CCP, come back in 18 months except for a few short lists of a few detail level tweaks here and there. But CSM as a whole can and does that, that's not a platform.

Btw, the new player experience is already clear to be changed for incarna, but that is it.

Maybe you should worry more about Hybrid hull bonuses and slot layouts then a non-existent problem with armor tanking.

Do you actually know what I want to change about Armor or did you literally stop reading at armor improvements?

No I don't actually know since all you said was:

WHITE TREE proposes a reduction or an alteration in the nature of Armor penalties which would allow for greater speed and maneuverability on the playing field.


Which doesn't actually say anything other then armor is too slow, in your opinion. Also, armor is fine.

Yes, so basically thats what I'd change about armor, the speed penalties. Failing that, a slight increase to the base speed/flexibility of Gallente hulls or the ability to reach their top speed faster than anyone else would be fine.
