About Me
I have been an active Eve player for well over 3 years with near daily activity in game and with extensive understanding of most areas of game play.
I have run both High sec carebear/industrial corp and corp/alliance that lived out in 0.0. I was highlighted as a key leader of the alliance when E-ON published an article on us.

I understand what it means to live in both empire and in 0.0, I have done both (with various toons) for years. I have experienced market trade work, research, invention, T1/T2 manufacturing, mining, POS Management, small and large scale pvp. My main point is I have been around and I know what this game is about.

In the real world Iím a senior IT Architect, a person whoís used to identifying and resolving complex challenges on a daily basis and leading people. Driving progress and holding people accountable. I do feel I can translate my years of professional experience into real progress for our community.

Why am I running?
Over the years there I have seen so many change to Eve, some great some not so great. Some are great starts but are never evolved. I really enjoy this game and really look forward to CCPs long term goal of a fully immersive sci-fi simulator. I want to be a part of that progress and ensure itís done in a way that aligns with the communityís desires.

The CSM and Me.
Anyone that has paid attention for more than 5 seconds knows that the CSM members canít go in and demand certain feature or things be added/removed. CSM is to serve as a sounding board to ensure that CCPs directions are on track with what we as a community want. So please donít sit here and post ďI will vote for you if you promise xyzĒ.

The CSM is used to help mold and align CCPs plans not set ultimate direction. While in some cases the CSM does help stress the importance of certain areas, chances are only made if CCP agrees. CSM does NOT get to do what it wants, and a CSM member can NOT promise you anything beyond their abilities. So donít believe them if they do.

My campaign objectives
As I stated above, CSM canít force results to specific items, they can however help CCP understand the impacts and present ideas and brainstorm possible solutions. If you feel my stance on a specific issue is relevant to your vote, please ask and I will tell you whether I endorse a specific thing or not.

To that end, here are a few important areas I feel need some/continued attention.

Here are my Campaign focus points
* Address lag issues through better game mechanics
* Hybrid/Gallente balancing
* Black ops Boost
* Capital/Super capital balancing
* Fix low sec (letís make it worth being there for more than just pirates)
* Ensuring old features are not left out to die (CCP is starting to do this, letís make sure it continues)
* Fixing POSs (to many things to list)
* Getting rid of Macro/bots
* Hold CCP Accountable to the player community (Their Customers)

Why Vote for me
Voting for me will put your vote towards professional leader and experienced player that wants to work to make eve all that I know it can be. As I discussed I want to focus on the large overall game mechanics instead of a few individual topics. I want to play my role to help facilitate progress from the CSM and CCP.

NOT just for Null Sec
Yes, my main character has spent most of its life in null sec and low sec, but my various alts have been involved in research, trading, manufacturing, mining, invention, pretty much every other part. I am not campaigning to just protect the interests of null sec, I'm here to represent the Eve player regardless of play style and location. I have good in-game friends that very from hardcore pvp types, to those that are afraid to to even loose a ship regardless of reason. and i feel i can properly address those concerns that are most important to you.

People have asked about my last bullet
"Hold CCP Accountable to the player community (Their Customers)"

I would like to give you 2 different but related topics where accountability does not exist.
1.) Cyno effect - Since the day CCP change the cyno effect people have spoken up. Overall the community wants it back (or better). I feel CCP should at the very least be accountable to step up and formal state.. Yes we are willing to discuss/change, or no we are not changing it (for whatever reason). Instead we have thread after thread of the same thing over and over.

2.) Black ops - The issue here is the same. Iím not going to discuss the options. After WELL over 1 year (prolly 2) there have been hundreds of threads, many active for over a year. My problem here is CCP delivers a product (Eve) and a part of that product (Black Ops) doesnít work in the way the customer base expects. Whatís worse is you have the community begging to make them usable versus something thatís simply not used like T2 plates because thereís something better for the job.

I think at the very least CCP needs to be accountable to address these types reoccurring issues. Either start some dev blogs to inform the community they are working on it if itís complicated like Black op, or just post a sticky thread where CCP can put formal responses. So after that every time a person says: ďWe want old cyno effectĒ they can just be pointed to that thread and its ended.

Hi i have delt with you as a "care bear" for a long time. you helped me when i first whent into t2 production. high sec is also broken as far as pierats on gates. I as a player think that the CSM should brouch the subject with CCP as a persinatent problem. shoul you get on the CSM i as you to try to get in in the talk topics.

I can agree with you that something needs to be done to 'fix' Low-Sec. I cannot see any advantage to living in or playing in Low-Sec over High-Sec or Null-Sec, except for the ability to crow about how awesome your -10 security status is. Some sort of major incentive or bottleneck resource needs to exist Low-Sec to make it livable and worth inhabiting, while at the same time not detracting from High-Sec or Null-Sec. I do not know what could be done about this, nor do I believe you or anyone else running for CSM does. But here's to hoping.

Well in all honesty there are generally benefits to being in high sec or 0.0
high sec - you can relatively safely mine or manufacture with minimal risk. while you can't moon mine, ratting and manufacturing can be done to a point where the volume easily makes it worth it. (ok maybe not ratting)
For example.. you can easily spend 3 hours mining ore in high sec and while that same 3 hours in low sec MIGHT produce more profit the risk doesn't make it worth it. Loosing 1 hulk will literally counter any potential profit for days if not longer. Ratting is the same way.. the profits dont always justify the risk.

0.0 - if alliance owned, you can get a certain level of safety, or really a certain level of safety just due to the low population. ore and rat values are such that you can recover the loss of a ship in just a few hours.

There are many potential options such as making some items only available in low sec, which would increase their value making it worth the risk to go after them, or making certain items only available here. Right now anything available in low sec can be gotten in 0.0 with much less risk, so there is no drive to use low sec. There are also some very radical (paradigm changing) options that might reduce the risk to low sec carebears instead of only increasing the reward. any of which are probably not very relevant at this point.

Crunchytwit, i will touch base with you in game to ensure i understand your concern before addressing it here.

Draco can fight a bear with his bare hands and once killed an elephant just by peeing on it.

He's in a corp named Thundercats. Based on that alone he probably deserves an ambassadorship to a small European nation, at least.

I like his objectives and his campaign platform, and I think that Draco would make a solid representative for people who want to make sure that Mittens and the rest of the CSM keep CCP in line.

Thumbs up.

I've flown with Draco before and read his stuff, and he's got some quality ideas and clearly cares about the game. He'd make a solid addition to the CSM.

What would you do for losec? CCP have just implemented a drop of sansha carrier bpc only in losec; in the past they have implememnted level 5 missions directed towards lo-sec. What more do you think can be done to improve this area of space?

See Post #5, where i cover a few high level points on the opportunities with Low sec. It not that the CSM can "do" any one specific thing, we can however work to identify the communities few larges issues and work with CCP as a focus group or sounding board on new ideas that would help correct some issues.

At the end of the day one of the best things we can do is find a workable solution to get carebears into low sec. Get them there to harvest the riches (that need to be created) and provide targets for those that aren't care bears *grin*.
The only real way to get carebears into low sec is to either a.) reduce the risk or b.) increase the reward.

I understand that you want to try to improve game mechanics and thats good but what can we do for lols? would you consider giving hulks turret or launcher hard points, (I do not mean to increase the number of high slots just to add varity to the fit allowed).
