HI

Crowsourcing is a really good tool for the CSM but it suffers from inherent flaws. With this thread I just wish to bring this to the attention of the CSM.

While voteing for issues is very democratic and seems all do good, the reality is it does not reflect the seriousness of issues. Now what do I mean by that you may ask!

Well issues that are race specific will automaticly be at a disadvantage since only players of that race are likely to vote in the affirmative. Moreover, now that you can vote in the negative its to the advantage of other races to vote against fixing issues with opposing races however fair or real problems thay may have. This issue can in some cases be further compounded by the face that the 4 races are not equally popular and the least populated race is thus at a further disadvantage.

I ask CSM to consider this because the only (real) gallente issue on the crowdsourcing list is to buff gallente E-war. While true this area also sux for gallente its not the most pressing problem. Can anyone guess what im thinking of? Do i really have to say it?......hybrids....there i said it!

Not supported, there are two races that use Hybrid Turrets as there main TURRET of choice. Caldari, the most popular race, and Gallente, which you say is the least popular race.

Both races have 2 forms of major dps, Caldari have missiles and the Gallente have drones. Only the Gallente can apply both Hybrids and drones at the same time with no penalty.

Hybrids are at a disadvantage right now but that is not the major issue with gallente. The major issue is that they are to slow to apply there best dps. Fix the Gallente ships, hybrids are fine the way they are.

Whatever, twist the issue any way you like, its still an issue. I dont care if they fix hybrids by fixing the speed or whatever, just get it done. Anyway, i just pointed out the issues with the way CSM is prioritising, you did notice that right?

edit: btw, I cant remember seeing caldari turrent ship in low or 0.0, they might be there, but then its very very rare

I see the same thing concerning Gallente Hybrid Platforms. Most Gallente ships I see are Drone boats. Domi Kicks *** BTW

Anyway addressing the Gallente issue isn't my highest priority and I'm sure that the majority of the pilots out there don't care about race or anything of that nature, they won't vote against fixing hybrids, but they won't vote for it either.

I agree the vast majority of players will not vote for hybrids balance, and thats my point exactly. The issue is extremely central to to all gallente (and a very small number of caldary crazy enough to waste SP on a broken weapon). Since so few players will vote for it, it will not get the attention it desrves based on the impact the iussue has on affected players. Minor issues will get promoted over this to the detriment of players who did not know not to train gallente.
