Hello Jade,

I'm glad you decided to go for CSM candidature. I really like your manifesto and share the same vision of the eve universe.

We may not agree on everything, but we'll agree on most of it.

You're a great candidate, and you have all my votes.

With Regards,
Natsu

I actually voted for Jade.

Honestly, I like what he has to say. And the other candidates make me grind my teeth.

OK, let me get this straight. Your Alliance is a roving PVP group that does not hold any space or have any stations yet you want to change all of the POS warfare and cyno jammer stuff? To me you are looking out for your own intrests and your play style.

I would be all for nerfing 0.0 warfare too if I was in a 100+ man alliance that did have to worry about what it would effect.

I am trying to see how you are a good candidate for those that hold chunks of 0.0 space and know how important some of the modules are to do that. You act like it impossible to knock out a cyno jammer, if that was the case you would not see anyone losing space because of capital ships.

So my question is why would you be a good candidate for 0.0 alliance people that hold space?

Given that time is limited in CSM meetings will you be able to be concise and to the point in order to not waste the time of the CSM and CCP?

From personal experience working with him, he has the ability to be concise and to the point when there's a need.

He just likes to be wordy when there's a chance Laughing.

Surely it in fact means the exact opposite. Jade's lack of interest in controlling space makes him the perfect candidate for considering changes in the ruleset.

Hi Jane

Just wonna wish you good luck. Seems to me like you be a great part of CSM
sadly im to green for EvE to vote for you, just got a active accountRolling Eyes

We appreciate your interest in the Council of Stellar Management but sadly you do not meet our criteria for voting. You need to possess an active account and it has to be older than 30 days. Trial accounts are excluded from all participation. You may not be affiliated with CCP in any way. ugh

True, but it can also mean that with the way things are in game now it is much more difficult for roaming groups/mercs who have contracts to take the things down for someone else. *shrug*

Also about POS's no longer going towards Sovereignty status, what would give Sovereignty status in a system?

As far as making outposts destructable, what needs to happen is giving outposts defense systems. Right now if a fleet shows up with more people than the system has in it they can just sit outside a station and shoot services without taking damage. Give stations the same type of defenses as a POS and let people in a station control weapons ect.

CCP made it so outposts are meant to be captured and POS's destroyed, now if someone takes a station it would be nice to be able to get some of the loot out of the hangers. I think it is lame that if you take a station you cannot touch ANY of the stuff stored in it.

To Maranthas:

Well, ultimately everyone is biased one way or another; don’t believe the myth of objectivity in these matters. People who have a vision or passion for the game and want to see it improved are biased in favour of those aspirations and potentials, people who say they want the status quo are biased in favour of numbing paralysis, people who claim to have no agenda are being less than truthful.

Re industrial effort, don’t think for one moment that Star Fraction achieved the position it has in the game today on a diet of pure pvp mayhem. We’ve got some the most successful industrialists in the game period as part of our roster and just because we make industry work on a territorial paradigm doesn’t mean we don’t care about the interests of builders, technologists, and market involvement.

I think you’re being a little short-sighted to make industrial argument ALL about POS and outposts. I’m very happy for example, to see POS return to a primary role as industrial structures and remove the sovereignty element from their makeup as part of a process of reforming 0.0 warfare. I’d love to see more varied and interesting options for POS from the development of space angle, but I hope you’ll come to see that tying these things to the sovereignty mechanic ruins all that since they become the single focus of space-warfare as well as economic tool.

I think you are wrong to categorise my suggestions as being about “easy destructible” infrastructure and I’d ask you to read again. It’s not about being “easy” its about making space control about conflict and pvp not about siege drudgery and player vs structure. I’m very happy that a Large POS can be a difficult and time consuming thing to attack – I’m not happy that these things make outposts invulnerable as part of the sovereignty process. And I’m not happy that outposts themselves will never be destroyed and will eventually be spammed through the whole of 0.0 diluting their value and accomplishment and turning the whole once dynamic landscape of the game in to a dull and monotonous backdrop of unattended “flags” that nobody cares about enough to capture.

At the last though, thanks for your post, and I’m sorry you couldn’t come on board with the ideas expressed in my election manifesto, I hope you find your ideal candidate amongst the other options and enjoy the rest of the game!

Good luck Jade, we need vision and leadership such as yours on the CSM to keep those unique qualities that drew us to the EVE universe evolving and dynamic!


I think we all need a little more spice and danger too. I've got to say I still get a thrill of excitement fighting space battles in 0.0 and empire war and putting my ships and clone in harms way, I still see the space opera of Eve Online for what it is and can be and I just want to do my bit to promoting the beautiful ideals at the core of this game and advocating those changes that will keep it fresh and thrilling for each new generation of player.

Thanks for your vote!

Jade,
I'm an industry-oriented player but I like being able to play a part in warfare by supporting my friends with equipment and logistical services. What I want to know is how you see the relationship between industrialists and fighters. Also, are there any issues you see with industry that need addressing or improvements that could be made - both purely industrially and with war in mind.



Relationship between industrialists and fighters is a vital one, real competitive advantage is delivered to a combat wing by having good logistical support and excellent knowledge of current industrial systems. As I've said to earlier questions, I'm by no means an expert on Eve's building/production gameplay mechanics, but many of my directors and contacts in game ARE. I do see the huge benefit from these sides of the game delivered in the form of cost-price tech2 hulls and equipment, capital ships and freighters and the like, and without the diligent gameplay and breadth of knowledge encompassed by these friends of mine in game then Star Fraction wouldn't be a shadow of its current self in the Eve galaxy.

On improvements, earlier in the thread I expressed some options to a reply to LaVista here

Hope this answer helps you decide your vote. All the best!

Awww thank you Dani, glad you didn't hold us attacking your Moros dreads with stealth bombers against me Very Happy

Fingers crossed we get a progressive CSM group that can truly grapple with the very real problem of paralyzing stasis in 0.0 warfare.

Unfortunately, I didn't notice Jade's desire to remove local before I cast my vote. :(
Do NOT vote for this person if you like local the way it is.


Ah bad luck, seriously though what don't you like about the proposal for replacing local intel with better scanner functionality and reduced map options (+ delayed constellation chat for social interaction)? Can you express your opposition to the local changes with a little more detail please?

Jade,

I understand your concern about outposts being built all over but right now there are only 350+ outposts in EVE and that count includes the conquerable outposts. Many wars are fought over these outposts. If you make it so outposts can be destroyed are you also willing to give them defenses?

Also can you answer the question about if POS's are removed from the SOV system what would give people SOV in a system?

Wrathamon Starfury, don't worry I'll get round to the questions, I'm trying to be quite disciplined about answering them in order of posting to be fair. Keep checking the thread and I'll definitely get to it - you do bring up interesting issues that I'm very eager to address. Please hold that vote! Cool

Votes cast.

A candidate who recognises what is broken, brings some ideas to the table, and who is open minded regarding the solutions.

Lets hope the CSM is not too late to help steer EVE away from what looks to be a terminal disease.

Maggot.



Your support is greatly appreciated old friend! Certainly at its five year mark its time for us to re-inject enthusiasm and innovative solutions into the Eve environment and deal with the static mechanics that have robbed some of the drama and space operatics from the 0.0 frontier. I've got a lot of faith in the player base and development team - I'm sure we can find a proper way forward to the benefit of everyone.

Great speach and as a banks fan im in agreement to the whole love of space opera and tragic loss.

I have one thing I would like looked into, and i know I will be much ridiculed: how about e-warfare being mostly restricted to e-war specialised ships? I think there is too much reliance on everyone using jammers all the time and it would make people think about what ships are in their fleets and gangs.

Anyway, good calls all round, you have my votes.

I just canceled my account a few days back, mainly because EVE have turned into "Capitals Online" and everyone is flying a carrier these days...
But there are more reasons of course, like the gates we have to use for travel, "local chat", no sense of crew on your ships, very small universe (think about it; every system have how many places where you can actually travel to?) and the overwhelming griefing going on.

Anyway, you got my vote.

Why?

If you can help make EVE feel a little bit more "spacey", and adress the whole "caps online" issue, I might come back in the future...

Fly safe.
