Let me preface this by saying I haven't been asked by anybody to do this in order to promote him. I'm writing this post simply because I'm bored and figure that my posting isn't quite terrible enough that your eyes will melt.

If you don't live in nullsec, and specifically the NC, you probably don't know who I am. Within the NC and TEST's allies I'm slightly infamous; mainly because I yell and scream obscenities constantly on voice comms and partially because I trolled OWN Alliance into caving in and being shipped off to the Kalevala Expanse to forever live as a buffer against the Russian horde. I have terrible killboard stats (as if they matter) and have purposely lost a one billion ISK Rifter to blues to further that opinion.

I'm voting for The Mittani for a few simple reasons. The primary reason that I'm voting for him is that he's realistic. He hasn't "sugar-coated" much of his campaign. He's been blunt, honest and generally straightforward with his opinions and objectives on the CSM. He wants a large nullsec presence on the CSM to avoid another situation of "Yeah you should get rid of jump bridges."

Even though nullsec only makes up about 10% of EVE's population, I agree that the CSM should consist of largely nullsec players. This is because of the impact nullsec has on the game. It is, in my opinion, the driving force behind EVE's popularity. The majority of advertising CCP employs is nullsec related; whether it's massive fleet engagements, capital warfare, invasions or politics, most of their advertising revolves around the various entities that live in null-security space.

The importance nullsec players have on the game is also astounding. The sheer volume of alternate characters that nullsec pilots have in low and high security space fuels the various areas of the game beyond the fauceting of level 4 and mining. Supercapital engagements have even been known to spike the price of minerals throughout the entire game universe.

No, Mittens does not have an enormous vested interest in fixing faction warfare. He doesn't much care about balancing various LP stores, or tweaking highsec aggression mechanics such as neutral repairing. He's a nullsec candidate who is going to focus on null-security issues and general game design choices (the UI, for example). However, changes to nullsec have a loud, reverberating effect on the entire game, whether it's from manufacturing sovereignty modules instead of POSes, the recent popularity of the Maelstrom or the death of the sniper armor battleship, every shift in nullsec changes the game for everybody in a way that just isn't present with things like faction warfare or level 4 missioning.

The final, and one of the most important reasons that I'm voting for The Mittani is that he's intelligent. Yes, you can say he's a goon. The fact that he's a goon doesn't change the fact that he brought Goonswarm Federation back from irrelevancy; you can say they were donated Deklein by TCF. You can say they blobbed. But the fact is that running the largest alliance in the game across multiple timezones and languages is HARD. The fact that he is able to consistently and effectively manage his alliance with realism and without CTAs or forced ops is a respectable achievement. This gives me confidence that my vote to The Mittani will not be a wasted one.

The dude makes so much money in real life he could afford to go somewhere a lot cooler than Iceland a million times over. I don't think he cares too much about winning a free trip to hang out with some fat developer nerds in an overheated office in Iceland so he can argue about video games.

You can't. I mean most people can but I'm told Montolio has specifically asked that any time you post that your alliance is not displayed. This is for our safety of course.
