Technetium and Neodymium, two moon minerals in two very geographically specific regions, own them and you own the game. You make so much money from them that your pvp players effectively fly for free. An outsider in empire can't compete with that. They never have to take a break because the money flows so easily. The south, where IT and Atlas and AAA and Init have been is rather poor. Alliances there don't have the income to compete because Technetium is a northern region mineral.
Coalitions between empire's can't be broken by just taking away standings so to fix nullsec the rest of nullsec should be made worth more.

The Anti-Kartel CSM

* Balance nullsec by making all of nullsec worth more (technetium/neodymium)

* Jumpbridges can only be used by own alliance

* Making it much harder to maintain Coalitions of Alliances

(in Nullsec only own alliance will appear blue)

* The Termination of Renterspace as it is today

* The Elminination of Powerblocks/ Vacuums

* A fair chance to empire corporations/ alliances to settle in 0.0 space

* A stop to the mafia extortion of paying for space (an avg. of 140,- / $190.- worth in PLEX/ isk to pay (rent) a month to the superpowers in order to be able to obtain a few systems in nullsec) <br> This has to be stopped, and if needed, by a change in the EULA.

* See my page at Evelopedia for more information

* Fair Play! More challenge!

* If deep in your heart you feel i'm right then don't vote for your alliance this time but vote for me!

And please, can you learn where Technetium is coming from (hint: not R64 moons, like in your thread title)? Thanks.

If it became an EULA violation for alliances to rent space, then you would see one of two things happen. Either the existing superpowers would kick all of their renters out of their rented space (probably by force, so they could smash and grab some assets); or, the existing superpowers would absorb their renters into their own alliance and still charge them rent via arrangements made via out-of-game communication (which is not much different from now). But then what about the blatant EULA violation, you ask? Couldn't the disgruntled Joe Citizen just petition the evil alliance overlord? Yes, he could. And then he and his corporation (or block of corporations that came from the same renter alliance) would be kicked from the superpower alliance. The aforementioned smash and grab would probably occur.

The problem with your ideas is that there is no feasible way to reasonably enforce any of them. Any sort of social construct that is disallowed by the EULA could be circumvented entirely by using out-of-game chat programs, email or forums to communicate the arrangements. The out-of-game rules posted for every alliance would include (if they don't already) that the number one rule is a zero-tolerance rule for screwing over anyone else in the alliance with the inclusion of filing petitions. This is a rule for Goonswarm, and I can't imagine that it's not (or wouldn't become, in the hypothetical you present) one for the other large alliances.

It's not expected that a CSM will come up with THE genius solution for all problems but it will be good to have a CSM within CSM-6 that will trigger CCP and stimulate them to work on a better solution.

The game can get a lot better for everyone and much more challenging.

The fact that CCP Navigator stated this in a forum thread does not say it is no longer an issue for the CSM.

That's exactly one important reason why CCP implemented the Council of Stellar management!
