Who am I?

My name is Jordy, a 24-year-old male playing the character of Cyerus, whom has been living in the world of EVE for about 2 years now.
Having tried 0.0, Mining, Industry, PvP, PvE and currently inhabiting a Class 5 Wormhole, I can shine a bright light on subjects that raise questions.


Ok, let's hear some of your ideas.

First of all, it's not about my ideas. It's about the ideas that you have that can increase the game's experience and quality. I will give a list of subjects that need some tweaking.

* Make "Local" configurable
* Highsec wars (neutral RR)
* Zero tolerance of botting
* Lowsec (more than just a safe haven for 0.0)
* Balance of Supercaps, 0.0 and Jump Bridges
* POSses in general


But why you?

With a background in IT and Communications, I have a stable base to pass on your thoughts, ideas and problems. Not being affraid to state my opinion, I can be your voice to increase the game's experience.
Not only helps that to actively discuss issues, problems and ideas, it also speeds up the process on fixing them. Not by compromises, but by real solutions.


Thank you for your support. I hope to see your vote.

Can you elaborate on "making Local configurable", low sec, balancing supercaps? What ideas for these issues do you favor?

Customizable "Local" should give you an answer on the first.

On 'lowsec' and 'balancing supercaps' I will release multiple blogposts tomorrow.

Based on your campaign message, you are one of my top five favorite candidates. Congratulations! =p

Recently, Iíve focused heavily on trading and processing PI commodities in and around Jita. This has been very lucrative for me, increasing my net worth from 100m to 1100m in just two months. It is a very complex and financially risky way of making money, and I have a massive Excel spreadsheet dedicated to it, but I am beginning to master the art of Jita trade.

Coming from World of Warcraft, I absolutely love EVEís free market system and intuitive market interface, but there is a key element of my moneymaking that I find absolutely horrible: the Planetary Interaction interface itself.

CCP made a couple important improvements with Incursion, but almost nothing to aid people like myself who overlook harvesting completely and focus on processing what others have harvested and have put on the market. With 123 advanced industry facilities and 24 launchpads on my six planets in Sobaseki, switching schematics and routes to account for shifts in the market can take upwards of 3000 clicks, when it could feasibly be programmed to take a tenth of that (excluding any clicks outside of the PI interface). On top of that, I have to wait ten seconds each time I wish to import or export from each of my launchpads (a feature intended to prevent lag, I assume), which may only make it take about seven minutes longer than it should, but is still a headache. There are other, less important grievances I have with PI (canít view the contents of planetary customs offices without being in the same system, etc.), but I feel like Iíve ranted long enough.

And so my question to you is this: Do you share my feelings about further PI reform being absolutely critical to the economic and industrial aspects of the game, and, if elected, will you lobby CCP on behalf of me and all the other planetary industrialists in New Eden?

I think that the core of PI currently doesn't need to get changed. Maybe 10 seconds can be reduced to 5, although I would like to know why CCP made it 10 seconds in the first place, to be absolutely sure reducing it to 5 won't break anything.

I also think there is room for improvement on the interface part. I have to agree that the 'routes'-interface needs an overall change, where the processes should be seen directly, rather then having to check each individual route.
Currently the 'Storage Facilities' have the same storage capacity as the launchpads for double!!! the cpu / powergrid usage. If this structure could be given a non-delayed link to the launchpad and far more storage to match its cpu / powergrid use, this would make it a lot better.

Thank you for pointing out the issue on the where the customs offices can't be checked when outside station. I think this could be fixed by linking the 'Remote Sensing' skill to it.

In my opinion the current biggest issue is Tech 2 production. With old players having researched Tech 2 BPOs, no new person is being given an equal chance to make money in this area. I just did a price check on the Onyx for example, costs about 179mill to buy in Jita, and over 200mill to build if you have all the BPOs for the Tech 2 components. Even far over 210mill if you buy all the premade components.

Conclusions;
Economic needs a boost. Tech 2 production balanced and PI smoothed.
Highsec suicide ganker's insurance removed and CONCORD faster deployment time (gankers change tactics, so should CONCORD).
Possibly mining barge / exhumer / industrial / transport ship "toughness"-increase.

This would not only restore balance in highsec, it would possibly even mean some industrials going to try out lowsec.
In over 85% of the systems in EVE combat is allowed, yet why is highsec still target of everything? I mean, come on..

Looking forward to that :)

Also, I dont think its a real debate, from what I heard (past "debate"), seems more like a good way to promote your points and answer some questions :)

Despite your ostensibly RP-friendly introduction, your comment on match.eve-csm.com about whether roleplay is sufficiently supported demonstrates a lack of understanding of the issue, and maybe even a hostility toward anything that benefits those who take the concept farther than you do due to some irrational fear that your own style will be affected.
"Every character in EVE is by definition a RPing. Yet I am still myself and don't want to change that in any way."

It was meant more as something to think about. The statement, in my opinion, should not be if EVE has enough to offer RP-wise, but whether if you are contributing enough to EVE. It's up to the players to decide how much of their characters is really like themselves in RL, and which parts are fictional and only exist in the game.

It's up to the players to decide how much of their characters is really like themselves in RL, and which parts are fictional and only exist in the game.

The statement is what it is:
"Roleplaying is not sufficiently supported in Eve Online"
The point of the questionnaire was to answer the provided statements, not make up your own and then answer those without even mentioning within your answer that you have done so.

It's true that roleplaying is, in essence, a player-generated and player-supported activity. It can occur even in games where the developers do almost nothing to encourage it. But that's not the ideal situation, and there are things that can be done to encourage it and make it easier. For example, making informational PF more readily accessible in-game instead of 1) burying some morsels of it inside mission text and making those morsels available nowhere else, and 2) burying the other morsels in unorganized webpages. That particular issue will be fixed by this, assuming that actually gets done and fulfills its objectives.

With the above in mind, at this point I think EVE is very supportive of RP and specific advocacy of roleplayers' concerns is only needed in a maintenance capacity, i.e. prodding CCP for clarification if something they propose suggests a PF retcon of some kind may be incoming.

It's also true that there's a broad spectrum of opinions about the definition of RP. You are on one end of that spectrum. Most people who actually identify themselves as roleplayers are on the opposite end.

All that aside, what really bothers me about your response to the RP-related statement on the questionnaire is that it implies a willingness to ignore what people actually say, substitute what they said with your own statements, and then respond to those statements in a very personal, irrelevant manner. Is that how you're going to represent players who aren't you?

I value every person's opinion, regardless of whom or what they believe in. Let me try to explain it the best I can.

"Roleplaying is not sufficiently supported in Eve Online", which I strongly disagreed with. With the upcoming release of Incarna the hole concept of RP will be lifted to the next level. Where currently RP is limited to Faction Warfare, Incursions, and a player's imagination, the future will include the concept of walking on stations and having conversations with NPCs.

"Every character in EVE is by definition RPing. Yet I am still myself and don't want to change that in any way."
In the first part of this statement I only imply that every player in this game is by definition a RPing character.
The second part I'm using myself in a philosophical way to say that regardless of the changes to RP in the game, the character would still need to be able to decide whether or not to be part of it. Even though using myself as an example may be selfish, it also gives some information on who I am; my character being very close to the RL me.

I don't feel that my explanations are irrelevant, only explained in a bad way. I think RPing should always pushed further, and made better. Everyone's opinion and ideas on how to improve RP will count as equal. I hope that this reply has the answer(s) you are looking for.
