I have withdrawn from the election.



Hello again! I am pleased to announce my candidacy for CSM6. You may remember me from CSM3 in which I represented the interests of a broad array of EVE Online players. With your support I hope to succeed by being re-elected and bringing more players into the voting process for CSM candidates.

Why should you re-elect me to the CSM?


I feel that I was successful during my first term in listening to the interests of players and bringing them to vote with the Council and then on to CCP. There were 21 individual issues which were represented by me (click this link to view a list of them via my web site.) And they covered aspects of the game which sorely needed some attention from CCP. My attendance for CSM meetings were stellar save for one time in which I was absent, fortunately the meeting was rescheduled due to others not showing up either. I hope these two examples demonstrate the dedication I showed to my role as a member of CSM3 and my ambition to continue taking the responsibilities seriously for CSM6. By having already served on the CSM I have the benefit of my past accomplishments showing I can get results rather than making promises for what I "could" do if you voted for me.

Do you care about PVE (missions, exploration) and mining?


I do too! CCP needs to do more to add new content for missions and especially mining. Let me be your advocate in telling the Developers that the Empire community wants more options. The worst thing that could happen for the economy is people get sick mining and stimulating market growth with the ISK earned from running missions.

Are you sick of unfinished (Faction Warfare, Lowsec) content?


Enough is enough! There needs to be real attention giving to Faction Warfare and especially Lowsec. CCP has shifted high level missions towards Lowsec but not giving that area any true development in helping either side of the carebear/pirate coin. I will continue to press forward on the successful community feedback members of CSM5 gathered. We need this to be at the top of development queue once CCP finishes with Incarna.

Are you worried your voice won’t be heard concerning Incarna expansion?


You should be! Look at CCP’s track record concerning past expansions. They like to generate PR buzz then move on to their next great idea. Incarna needs to mean something to the players. I personally hope that it will evolve into something outstanding. Each station having the potential to be its own community where commerce and socializing thrives. This won’t happen without a strong voice telling CCP what the players want from this content. I can be that individual for you.

I will focus solely on the concerns of Empire dwellers as a member of CSM.


Through my seven years of playing EVE Online I have sampled every play style imaginable. Most recently I was heavily involved in nullsec life but that is no longer. I have since returned to Empire where mission running and other activities have taken up my time. If you elect me you will have my full attention in making sure CCP hears your voice.

Most of all I will work with my fellow CSM delegates.


This past CSM showed that a unified front among the delegates in how they approach is essential. CCP will have a hard time ignoring players when their representation stands together and works well with each other. Vote for me and I shall do my best to bring your concerns to CCP.

In what ways do you intend to work with the other CSM members, so that CCP is presented with a unified voice?

Regular communications along with the fact I'm a pretty chill guy. I got along swimmingly with CSM3 so I don't see there being any issues with CSM6. The success of the CSM will depend partly on having a good team of people to work with and confront CCP on issues with the game.

What would you do in a hypothetical scenario where the rest of the delegates seem to have a consensus about an issue being a bad idea, but you have a different or opposing view? Would you be 'that guy' who gives CCP the ammunition to say, "Well this idea met with some approval from the CSM" by voicing your neutral or positive opinion?

It really depends on the issue. Let's say we have 8 CSM delegates who are nullsec players and CCP asks if they're cool with level 3 missions being moved from Highsec to Lowsec. Because I am there to represent Empire players and I would yell my disagreement, despite whether nullsec guys agreed with CCP.

Harmony will be important when we're taking issues -to- CCP that we feel needs immediate attention.

1. 'Empire' space is a term which refers to all space claimed by one of the non-Jovian, non-pirate factions. Moving missions from High-Sec to Low-Sec is not moving them out of Empire.

2. Null-Sec guys would not want high-level missions moved to Low-Sec. Not counting the guys who bot-rat in Null-Sec, a good chunk of Null-Sec players earn money with High-Sec mission-running alts. Others run missions in High-Sec to grind standings for datacores, or for their market alts. Moving high-value missions to Low-Sec is not a good idea for anyone, because Low-Sec sucks and has no reason to exist.

3. So the answer to my question was, "Yes". That's why you're not going to get my votes. The success of CSM-5 has been a result of cohesive and unified responses to several key issues. Fracturing that unity will return CSM-6 to the irrelevancy it has seen in past terms. You are bad candidate.

1. You are distorting things. The people who run level 3's would not want to venture into Lowsec for them. Heck they would prefer 4's and 5's all in Highsec.

2. We were talking hypothetical here.

3. Are you trolling here? Seems like you are. I gave you a hypothetical scenario where my opinion would be different than the group.

Why did you leave goonwaffe two weeks ago? Are you running as a spoiler candidate trying to split non-goon bloc votes? During your first term as a CSM delegate you came across as being affable but (like everyone else on that council) ineffectual. Why do you think you will be able to do better this time around? You talk about lowsec, but your corp history indicates that you have no meaningful experience of living there. Why do you feel that it is broken given that it is, on a per-system and per-capita basis, both the most densely-populated and most violent non-highsec space in the game?

I left so that I can distance myself from Goonswarm. There are enough people pushing the nullsec message and I want to represent Empire interests for this CSM term.

Not at all. My motives for running this time are genuine just as they were in past elections.

The CSM is a learning process. Previously we had 6 month terms which really weren't enough time to get much of anything done. You had one meeting with CCP and that was it. I'm recognizable by the Developers and have spoken to many of them in the past. This is helped by having been to three Fanfests and my one term on CSM. With having a whole year to the term there will be plenty of time to work with CCP and my fellow CSM to improve the game for the customers.

I've been playing the game for over 7 years now. While Avalloc has never been a lowsec pilot, I've got alts who have utilized lowsec plenty. For a nullsec player it is where they must pass through to access highsec. And highsec players only go there when they must. I want to see CCP put some serious development into lowsec and give highsec and nullsec people some to envy the potential play lowsec could give.

Thank you for the questions.

Sorry to hear that mate, hope it's nothing serious...
