- AURELEOS FOR CSM -

The entire purpose of my campaign is to prevent ridiculous changes to EVE motivated simply by the urge to nerf 0.0 or it's occupants while encouraging the creation of new content and novelty to keep the game both competitive and enthralling (even to the old foggies).

I have an MFA in Game Design (not saying I am a game dev or that I'd work as a game dev in the CSM since that is not its purpose) and I have a pretty good idea about what is and what isn't feasible for EVE. I've been playing EVE for 3 years and have lived all three lives (highsec, lowsec, nullsec) and know what each has to offer (both in terms of risk and reward).

I don't want to see anything go thru the CSM to CCP that deliberately nerfs any of the three areas for the benefit of another area (compensatory with risk). What does that mean? It means I am not going to make zero-risk areas as profitable as the high-risk areas: that would be nonsense.

Many people think that CCP resources should be exclusively devoted to this or that issue (fixing current issues VS creating new content): this simply doesn't make sense either since it is the creative side of EVE that makes it so cool at keep you coming back. For the most part, EVE mechanics works fine as long as you are not playing on a sh*t computer with a sh*t internet connection. When something widespread happens CCP does do its best to fix it fast. I will admit sometimes they are slow at it, but they do make their best effort working with some extremely complex code.

Stopping the 0.0 Nerftrain:
The only people who want to do this are those who are unable or unwilling to take the in-game politcial initiative to band together in such force as is needed in order to take or hold space... I make this claim with few exceptions: one being PL's use of meta-gaming/spying in order to acquire devastatingly effective intel combined with a strict and angry PvP performance demand on its membership (you should listen to their coms, LOL, they are so hateful to each other, but in an apparently homo-erotically sado-massichistic friendly way o_O).

We are NOT going to let Jump Bridges get removed or nerfed. We are NOT going to get rid of Titan Bridges (PL will agree with this as they are the LORDS of Titan Bridge ambushes). 0.0 is high-risk space with high rewards if you work together in sufficiently large numbers: We will keep it that way. If you don't like blob warfare then be sneaky like the most successful small gang warriors are rather than complain and advocate nerfing game mechanics that you are too stupid or too anti-social to figure out a work-around. Blobs can be fun if they are FC'd competently.

Games promoting RL values:
I like games that have real-life valuable lessons to teach.

Scamming in EVE - This is something that can happen to you in real life, and perhaps you could learn a good lesson by being scammed in EVE so you learn to avoid the same in real life (yes there are idiots who will never learn, but eventually those will emoragequit EVE and we will be rid of them. Though I have never Jita scammed someone, Jita scamming in EVE is a legitimate mechanic that should be left alone as a way of culling the morons from the game. Knowing you are at risk of being scammed is a valuable real-life lesson.

Banking - There are several organizations within EVE that offer banking services, but there lacks a system mechanic to make that a truly profitable system. How do you ensure that a loan can be repayed? Collateral. How can you save isk? Put it in an alt that you don't often use. Can you earn interest on money saved? Yes you can, but you have to trust it to a player controlled institution that is then making loans or profitable investments with which to pay interest on money you have trusted them with. We could set up some sort of commission to rate capsuleer controlled service organizations for people to use as a gauge of trustworthiness (think EvEBBB: Better Business Bureau) run by volunteers similar to the ISD method. I give Chribba's services a triple-A rating :P Saving and investing are good real-life values.

If you want to say, "Aw, Eve is teh game and shouln't haev stuffz like taht!!!1!," I say it already teaches a lot of commodity economics, so why not other useful skills? No where does it say that a game can be nothing more than a game, and besides you little kids can then tell your parents (or wives >.>) about valuable sh*t you learned from Eve.

New Content: Expand!!!!!
Wormhole Stuff - Developable Worm Holes - (Not just the systems) The WHs themselves. Imagine groups of organized people that can invest in building infrastructure to temporarily stablelize Worm Hole entrances. The immediate effect of this would be that WHs could potentially be safer for large groups of organized players trying to maintain towers and industrial activities - its actually a risk trade-off if you look close at the idea (easier to control the WH, but you become a larger target for pirates or other hostiles. The long-term effect would be reduced prices of T3 ships if the risk-trade-off isn't balanced. Everyone is gonna jump on this idea and say, "Aw that is a dumbf**ksh*t idea! What about blah blah blah or blah blah blah?" To this I say well we can have discussions about the creative aspect of addressing "blah blah blah" without trashing the idea altogether. Afterall imagine the fella that first said, "hey lets make an MMO that is all one huge server based in space." You know some assh*le troll jumped up in Iceland and said, "Aw that is a dumbf**ksh*t idea! What about blah blah blah or blah blah blah?" Well, 8 years later and a whole buttload of "blah blah blah" later we have a pretty cool game we all love to play - if you don't love Eve then why the heck are you reading this?

Incarna - Yes Please - No it doesn't mean CCP is trying to go and be like World of Warcraft. Its novelty. It puts a face on Eve - poor pun intended. It creates an entirely new dimension for the expansion of Eve. CCP can easily support the Incarna feature by having those mechanics supported by dedicated servers for those of you who are worried that the new content would fudge the servers for the rest of the game. My main reason for wanting Incarna is because (like so very many of you) I REALLY want to kick Scotty the Docking Manager in the nards.

Fixes to current game mechanics. This would be the largest section so far, so in the interests of whatever brevity I can salvage from what I have typed so far I would say that fixes and modifications would be looked at from a balance stand-point. CCP has maintainted that certain aspects of EVE are balanced despite complaints: the fact is that CCP has its reasons for keeping some things the way they are especially when it comes to ships and mods that are SPECIALIZED for certain combat situations. Understanding the game from the greater perspective and having a bit of realistic experience with real-world military capabilities I can understand the idea of specialization.

I am going to leave this open to questions as to what I mean as it pertains to Eve. The idea, again, is to prevent certain LULWUT forces from nerfing game mechanics simply to gain an advantage in a potentially narrow perspective of the game (that is not to say all concerns are narrow, just most of them).

Thank you again for taking the time to read my blah blah blah.

This I like. Nothing crazy, just measured, conservative advancement. When you have a machine with over a million gears spinning all at once you don't want to move too many at a time. We moderates need a voice and I think you're it.

I see a lot of other peeps running "having concerns" over new content ideas while failing to "have concerns" over changing the game as it exists while at the same time knowing jacksh*t about what they are talking about (not naming peeps). But there you have it. A lot of witless candidates talking hot air out their a**holes and over their heads. Same old sh*t every year... Mittani seems to know a lot, but since he is a lawyer in real life I am not gonna vote for him. Every vote he steals from the Mittani is a win for me.

Voting for you Aureleos! Save us from the "change!" YARRRR!!

I like this article as well. Nurfing just for the sake of nurfing is not an answer and should used as a last resort and I always against it. I have to say that it is the games vs rewards that keeps me coming back, But if i want a game that will hold my hand all the time i would go play WOW. Eve is more dangerous and less forgiving of mistakes and thats what i like. Thats my 2 cents.

For being a racist, thats why hal.

Which is why i voted for him, a vote for aureloes is a vote for purging the unwanted elements of eve (PL/macros/RMT/PI/WiS/Incursions/lag).

Lol, not having a go at you Demi. IIRC it was a convo you and I were having that offended that alpha guy and made him run to barqs and complain like a little puss. Hind sight I should totally have trolled that dude for what it was worth rather than apolgizing seeing how it would all have ended the same way. I love it how barqs got all personally offended too. That was even more troll worthy. :P LOL
