The only time you post in MD is when you're running for CSM.

So once a year, like clockwork.

The Mittani can't come out and ban be from goonswarm for doing that alone, but I'm not even allowed to mention that I'm running on our own forums, or else Bad Things Will Happen to me for violating his orders not to split the vote. Goons are not even supposed to know I'm running, let alone vote for me.

Customarily, there was always a primary within goonswarm to decide on who "our" candidate would be, but then suddenly it was announced that primaries would be scrapped for his "Send Mittani and Vile Rat to Iceland" plan.

Honestly, I'm kind of ****ed I wasn't allowed to run internally, as I'd be better suited to run as a Goon candidate than as an independent candidate who happens to be in Goonswarm while there's an announced plan to "Take over the CSM".

Trying to figure this out. Clearly Goons can see your threads here. Aren't the CEOs of Goon just kind of letting you do your thing?

Also, let's say you win and are coupled with the other Goon candidates... will you continue your obstinacy (did I use that word correctly) and voice your own opinion, even if it does conflict with what the other Goons want?

Rule 0: There is no cabal.
Rule 1: You do not talk about the cabal.

Your cabal membership is thus revoked.

On this board, yes. Please remember that the goons have their own forum.

Obstinate, stubborn, and independent are good ways to describe me, and especially my posts.

If anything, my goal is to bring an economics into the discussion to all of the CSM proposals and meetings. That's not limited to things that are purely economics, but includes any discussion on any topic related to the game. In that way, its not a matter of being for or against any particular desires that the 0.0 block may have, but a matter of changing the frame of discussion when the CSM debates and presents those issues.

So, you don't deny that you will likely be pushing your 0.0 blocks agenda? You also presume that no other candidate knows anything about economics. Rolling Eyes

I didn't deny anything. I'm also bad at answering questions posed with double negatives.

I'm not part of the 0.0 plot to take over the CSM. I'm part of the Kalrand Thinks The Economy Should Be Paid Attention To plot to take over the CSM.

Can you give us an example of how you would deal with CCP from an economical perspective? Specifically, suppose that this discussion about implementing fish tanks in Eve was actually taking place in Iceland (or in the private forums) between a CCP serious about implementing the idea and the CSM. What would be your opinion, how would you react, and how would you work with CCP as the idea was being brought to fruition?

I for one am interested in how the internet goldfish fit into the market model.

I personally would like to know how much a clown fish will go for.

In all honesty, crap like fishtanks in your captain's quarters seems like perfect stuff for CCP to focus their efforts on micro-plex in game purchases. They've made it clear that they intend to start doing those things, and something innocuous like this might be the right outlet.

It's the perfect example of something that has no effect on the game economy, won't change a player's performance, and People Might Like. Why not? Hopefully they don't need to jam five developers on it for months at a time.

You seem to be implying that such a feature, if implemented, would have to be entirely isolated from in-game items of worth, such as lootable fish upgrades and items that could be bought and sold for ISK.

Please elaborate or clarify your stance on this issue.

Not only is this not implied, but actually the opposite of the implications pertaining to what he suggested. Plex aren't separate from the in-game economy. Why would "micro-plex" items be? The use of that phrase says it all. </readingcomprehension>

I'm making the broad assumption that the decorations in your captains quarters don't give you some kind of a buff while piloting your ship. Lootable fish upgrades seems quite silly, but could replace the stupid useless loot that drops on some missions now.

Being tradeable for isk itself isn't a problem, being a substitute good for something already in the game would be. Anything that can be bough or sold using Plex or whatever mechanic CCP comes up with to separate people from the contents of their wallet should have no effect on their abilities in game when it comes to their interaction with the large game.

If people want to log in to stare at a fish tank, then good for them.

Could contain mini-games like fishing in Lord of the Rings, where the achievements are purely vanity related but require rare quest items to craft the best T3 tanks. :)

You could then invite others to your private quarters for some interactive role playing instead of a boring old private chat channel.

If they add other vanity stuff to incarna it might turn out to be just what Eve needs to get all those wives and girlfriends out there playing.

None are targeting the high-sec, industrialist, missions voting blocks which took somebody into second place last time.



Sadly, for every character in 0.0 space there is a high-sec, industrialist, mission running alt.



I personally have my main account, an account with a market trader and a mission runner on it, an account with a CEO alt for a high-sec mining corporation and a couple more market alts, and three other acounts full of high-sec Industry and Planetary Interaction alts. I don't see how it's sad; it's an effective use of my in-game money to pay for accounts full of characters that make me more in-game money. What's sad for you is that it means my six votes for Mittens will be worth more than your one vote for whomever.

Hmmm ... do you still have that ridiculous number of accounts for your invention operation Breaker?
