What are your thoughts on the "megablob" coalitions such as DRF and NC? Do you think they are fine as they are or should they be 'nerfed'? If you think they should be nerfed, how would you do it if it were left to you?

I will get this, coalitions are formed as an easy option to hold sov in 0.0. If CCP kept their promise of making sov changes (for small corporations to hold space) then this wouldnt of happen. The structures themselves require a large fleet or a fleet of supercapitals, something a coalition can provide during war times. Hence everyone blobs up into one.

Hi Elise,

It's been argued in the serious discussion section on Kugu and I'm sure on here as well (though I don't troll this forum nearly as much) that there needs to be a technetium rebalance. What are your thoughts on this?

Love,
Dental Floss

For those unfamiliar with the issue, some 18 months ago or so (perhaps longer, I'm terrible with dates) CCP changed the materials required to build tech-2 components. Moreover, they rebalanced the component need for tech-2 items. What this did was remove the Promethium/Dysprosium bottleneck, a problem which had begun to spiral out of control. Unfortunately all this did was create a new bottleneck in Technetium, which exists pretty much solely in the northern regions of Eve. So there are two alternatives to deal with the problem, the one that people are drawn to is a completely redistribution all moon minerals. While on a personal level I'd be tickled pink, ultimately this will not solve the problem. The bottleneck will still exist, it would just have different benefactors. The easiest and most pragmatic solution is to use a tool that already exists: alchemy. There is an excess of moon minerals that are simply not worth mining (including r64s), why not just tack onto alchemy to include r32s. You'll hit four birds with a single stone, and the tool is already there so there's no added work involved.

Now about the POS question. I remember when POSes first came out, I was so excited. When it online'd I excitedly mashed buttons and asked "ok sweet so what can I do...oh, I see - I can sit in this little blip". Needless to say, it was a bit of a let down. But that topic is ancient by Eve standards - the major complaint was that small entities couldn't fathom building an outpost. The harsh truth of the matter is that outposts aren't that big of an expense anymore. So while a revamp of the POS system would be welcomed, it's not that huge of an issue for me. Hey, I'd just be happy if the anchoring skill let me queue up POS mod anchoring/onlining.

Low-sec, to me, has the most potential in Eve to be awesome. Right now it has little going for it, but there is promise with CCP adding some low-sec content with Incursions. As I mentioned earlier, I don't want low-sec to be a ****tier version of 0.0. The reason low-sec isn't super popular is, essentially, because of the risk vs reward - simply put it is too risky and not nearly rewarding enough. To rectify this obviously you can either decrease the risk, increase the reward, or find some sort of happy medium. Decreasing risk would be selling low-sec short - that is not the answer. All that leaves is increasing reward. The rewards don't have to be straight isk, it could be something that's more intangible, something unique. There is no one single fix that can bring low-sec back, but there are a few small things that, together, can make a big difference.

Booster production exclusively in low-sec would be a start. Add in bonuses to alchemy (after making alchemy relevant again), commitment to boosting factional warfare, more high-quality level 4 agents, better exploration, et cetera. On their own, all these small changes won't do much - but together they snowball into uniquely rewarding part of the game.

And the final question, about Incarna. From a gameplay level I don't see the big draw with WiS; at the end of the day I'm going to continue to play Eve because of what drew me to the game: the spaceship flying around looking pretty BA. From a business level, I understand why CCP is devoting so many resources: it opens up a new director for their business and their game. Micro-transactions for cool hats, space-plastic surgery will, and probably somewhere down the line some wild minigames, will net CCP's business some mad bank. This freight train is already on the tracks and there is no stopping it. What I can do, however, is make sure the train doesn't go careening into a village. Perhaps I took the metaphor too far. What I mean to say is that I will make sure that Incarna will not adversely affect the core fundamentals of Eve Online - the game we all play. I don't see this as a looming problem on the horizon, but if it turns out to be I will be the first one yelling about it.

Thanks for all the questions thus far, keep em coming and don't forget that voting closes March 22!

He was awesome in CH and is awesome and most importantly active in not just Eve but the community, also there arent to many Canidates who will preserve small gang war or even have it in there best interest to, How could a MM/GSF or any NC member really promote Small anything since outnumbering enemies and making record fleet numbers is there primary tactic.

Also he has handled Peeps like Viper for along time...He can handle anything :)

Also fixxing the Tech problem is number 1 on my list, they replaced one evil with another and this one is in basically all 1 coalition and since its R32 its way to avalible for how much income it spits out...Sorry NC guys but its true

Mini Professions Ė Maybe itís just me, but I always thought that the explorers out there kind of get shafted. I mean, their job can be done fairly well by a dude in a Drake with two weeks of training. I know specialized covert alts pilots can find these sites faster, but a non specialized ship can find them fairly easily. Compare this to mining, or even missioning, and itís a joke. Miners aspire to fly Exhumers, misisoners aspire to Marauders, and explorers aspire toÖDrake? Donít get me wrong, my love for the Drake is well documented, but I think tech-3s provide a great platform for making professions more than just "mini". No ship gets a bonus to analyzers or code breakers, what about giving the Emergent Locus Analyzer subsystem a 10% bonus per level ? You can ditch the tractor beam velocity bonus if you want, I really donít think anyone even uses that especially with the Noctis. Explorers, be they in wormholes or wherever, will then have a de facto ship. With the same thing in though, gas cloud mining is another mini profession that has been left wanting; there is no ship that gets a bonus to mining gas clouds. Maybe Iím totally wrong here, but Iíve never seen anyone flying a Skiff ever. Why not retool that ship to get a gas cloud bonus. You can even get a gas strip miner if you want, thatís cool with me. You retool an existing, unused ship for a new use: next-level pragmatic space maneuver.


ATM gas mining I think it fine. You can happily make huge amounts of isk off of it with very little effort, so I really don't think this idea would be particularly necessary. Having a buff to the locus subsystem would be absolutely wonderful though. (Would also be nice to change subsystems in a POS too, but that's a different matter) Would you consider buffing the probing ability so that t3's would be better then cov ops for probing?

Why apologise? Most people living in technetium space agree that its ridiculously broken.

(we'd be dumb as hell not to be exploiting it as hard as we can until it gets fixed though)

LAST DAY OF VOTING IN UPON US

If you're looking for a PvP candidate, and for whatever reason you value killmails, I'm apparently on more than a thousand this month. Yea that's totally relevant~

Seriously though if I place I have a pretty sweet victory speech written so you probably want to vote if only to read it. My "welp I failed" speech is significantly ****tier, it's basically "welp I failed"
