A lot corps have bent over backward's to get pos's and research facilities of their own, making more publicaly available is a kick in the teeth to these corps.

There is already a way for players without access to get research carried out, by contacting pos corps and doing private deals etc, also their are loads of unused invention and pe slots in high sec, literaly stations of unused slots.


I understand the people having POSes might feel cheated, if there did come more ME slots in empire space, but then again they have LOADS of slots, my suggestion wasnt 200 new slots in every station, just some more so you dont have to wait 14 days for a job to start. It is ridicoulus that you have to wait this long for a job to even start, I think a little less than manufacturing slots would be nice, some times manufacturing slots are all filled, but not nearly as much as ME research slots. The people having POSes still have a HUGE edge, plus they get it done cheaper than in NPC stations. Doing nothing with this problem, just makes the rich richer, and the noobs no chance to do much on their own, forcing them to join mega corps / alliances.

And yeah there are plenty of PE slots and copy slots in empire space, its just the ME slots that are filled ALL the time, so you have to queue up for weeks.

The suggestion of loaning your BPO to shady POS owners, paying them to research it, is not a road Id like to venture. It would be laughable easy to scam people of their valuable BPO, that youve invested millions and yet millions in buying and researching.

Where does all that hate come towards the candidate? Which CSM candidate ALT are you?


ME research slots in Empire stations are dirt cheap already. Probably even cheaper in that you have no logistical cost compared to POS researchers who have to pay for the tower, modules and fuel. The only real advantage a POS researcher has is the ability to access a research slot now.

The mini-spin was excellent - this I have to admit. Good luck Ank - hope to see you in Iceland, you are an interesting and committed individual and I think the CSM would be richer for the kind of diversity you provide, we're not agreeing on everything but I think we'd have some excellent discussions and productive debate.

Jade + Serenity + Ank + Vista would be in the team I'd put together. (and some more actually)

Its a good mix of many aspects of the game and a WHOLE lot of experience in eve beyond hardliner 0.0 or carebear only. I would not want to have Ank out of the team, as there is hardly anything more important to a software-company then the ideas of young developers.

So a vote here, as I'm rather certain the other three will do just fine. :)

A few questions, if I may:

1) You claim that there should be a way to force known suicide gankers off a gate. You also claim that an AFK piloted hauler should be a viable target. Please reconcile these two statements.

1a) More to the point, someone is a known criminal if they have a suitably negative security rating. If a "criminal" has managed to increase his security rating sufficiently far to prevent him from being shot and killed by the police, surely he's paid his debt to society?

2) Wouldn't making 0.1-0.4 space simply have the effect of making 0.0 space *less* valuable? Given that it's currently a royal pain in the backside to conquer and keep such space, isn't this just going to drive some of the marginal 0.0-owning corporations back into the (relative) safety of lowsec and it's unconquerable stations?

3) You apparently don't have time to be a member of a corp. Why should we trust that you have the time available to perform the duties of a CSM to the best of your ability?

4) How the hell do you pronounce Ankhesentapemkah?

These statements are not mutually exclusive. An afk hauler does not do anything to guarantee its security, and also doesn't really deserve security. But other players may actively be hunting criminals for their own rewards meanwhile. They might provide some security for the afk haulers by chance, but this is just a side effect.

'Not being shot at by police' only means that the sec rating is somewhere between -2 and -5, which doesn't exactly show good conduct. Of course there should be ways to pay back the debt to society, but what good will that do if the former criminal only fakes it and intends to take up his previous career again and again and again? Repeated offenders shouldn't get away with their crimes that easily in my opinion.

If it was up to me, and a lot of the other CSM candidates, POS warfare and sovereignty will also be looked at. Any changes should happen around the same time, so there shouldn't be any exodus out of 0.0. Any changes to rewards in lowsec will always be properly researched before hand, and compared to the mechanics in place in both hisec and 0.0.

Who cares how you pronounce it, what is it's derivation from?

I'm gonna ask a few questions.

1) If you want to completely revamp the existing infrastructure, how do you plan to compensate the countless people that have created corporations, and entire lines of income around the current structure. There are countless skill points invested, as well as entire income structures of individuals & corporations built on this. Trashing it so 'anyone can buy one' certainly isn't doesn't seem like a CSM role that would penalize a large portion of the player base.

2) While you have some interesting ideas on how to handle the ganking, you don't offer anything other than the 'kick them out' instead of real solutions. It's pretty easy to rally the 'carebears' around a 'will stop them all! mwahaha' rally vs. offering some tangible solutions that are fair to everyone.

Just as I could walk out to the street corner with a baseball bat in hand and clock the nearest person in the real world, there are consequences for that action in the real world as well - if I'm caught. While if I did it in front of a police station my odds of getting away are a lot lower than if I did it on a dark street corner in a deserted part of the city, your solution seems to be based around 'I don't like that there is a person there, so let's get them!' vigilante style.

Also what about the mechanics of fixing accidental concording? I remember quite a few times when I was starting out in 0.6 space with my first heavy miner ships like a Scythe where I mined and then fought off NPC rats. However, mistakenly having a can targeted instead of a rat and concord shows up and pops my ship because I shot my can or a gang members can. If you remove insurance in game, incidents like this would be an instant wipe and would be just as aggravating and rage-quit inducing as being targeted by the jihad guys.

Would you push for a server that was 'care bear only' where Concord ruled the world with an iron fist and no one could shoot each other like WoW or other less enthralling MMORPGs? While there is a very vocal minority of people who think they should be able to play 23x7 away from their keyboard there are a large group of others that feel quite differently. Would you run them away in your quest for a soft & fuzzy unrealistic world.

3) You seem proud of your lack of corp status. How could you represent a community of 40,000 people spread across all spectrums of gaming when you refuse to participate in two of the core features? Corporations/Alliances & PvP?

This is one of my pet peeves, I think the whole system could use a reworking.

What better way to get new players into the, building/manufacturing, parts of Eve than to have hi-sec slots always open for ammo/missiles and hi volume T-1 items.

Something they can make and use for themselves and see if they have any wish to move further into this part of the game.

I am sure there are ways to make this happen, have slots always open in hi-sec for new players to use, to try out this part of game. And without taking anything away from the players that have spent so much time/isk/effort to set up player research corps.

New players already got a way of getting ME research done, several in fact.

1.Join a Industrial corp, they are all over the place and would be glad to get new members who wish to get into the building trade, personally know of several pos holding corps who are keen to get new members.

2.Suck it up and wait the 14 days or so to get a slot, they way too cheap in my view and the price needs to be increased to be on a level of the price of running a slot on a pos.

3.Buy a researched bpo, they are not that expensive if you plan on getting into building for a profit, esp the ones you'd want to start with as a new builder.

4.Lastly probably the most overlooked one, train prod eff to lvl 5 as this is more important than researched bpo's as it effects all you're building efforts.

There is no need for an "easy buton " as us new player's ( i'm a lot less than a year old myself ) have already got a lot of more opotunities that the players who are a few years old who had it a lot harder to start with. ie around the OP's age.


As for the comments about ganking and insurance, as a complete carebear myself and know a lot in game, the overwhelming view is that no insurance should be paid to anyone in who agressed someone when it eventually led to a kill, this would allow insurance to be paid to mistaken agression, myself i believe it shouldn't be paid to ANYONE killed by concord as it will make them more careful in the future ie, when they flying a faction pimped mission ship.

Only one i can think of who i've had ingame experience of, want's it impossable to be able to kill anyone in high sec even as far as making ore theft impossable, but he an asshat tbh.

I believe a good idea would perhaps make it possible to bid on research slots rather than them being a fixed price. This would allow the supply and demand for research slots to be more balanced with each other. Considering how well open markets have worked for commodities in EVE, why not the same for services?

PS: Yes, you indeed have my vote and enthusiastic support. BTW shoutout to Jade, it's fun to see a thorn in old Ragnar's side still out there.

you got my vote, i have been in 0.0 corps pving etc, but found empire beeing more fun as i can casualy play the game as i want.
Seeing how your wanting to take actions to make empire space safer for those of us who enjoys beeing there you got support.

however, when it comes to mining i wonder, what exactly are you thinking in the changes here? are you wanting to remove the belts compleatly from all systems so you have to do missions or do survey scans of systems to find the belts?
aka making it ten times harder and longer process to go mine?
becouse that would seriusly messs things up for alot of miners, including myself who just like the plain and simpleness of beeing able to warp out to the belt, mine some and relax.

also this would disrupt with my personal gamplay if i would need to go to an agent and make missions aka getting faction standins if i want to keep my miner NEUTRAL.

something i would like to see, would be the diffrent faction/races more living, whats your views on this? seeing how it might add to the lagg issue.

ambulation, what's your views on that?
don't you think it would be a good social thing, docking, having a character, meeting your corperation friends, and simply beeing able to leave the ship for a while and enjoy the game in few other ways.

as a final question, what would you say would be your TOP 3 things you would work hard to acomplish if you would win the election?

Mining is as mind numbing as it can be already. What you define "relaxing", most define it as an activity too boring to worth performing after one's first 2 weeks of gameplay or so.
Nothing wrong with making people to actually play the game to get the benefits instead of macroing or dragging some ore every 3 minutes or so. Nothing against miners, but that really isn't a GAME for me. It's worse than a crap working day ;)

No, don't worry! Very Happy

Removing the public belts would be a stupid thing to do, where else would the new players go, they wouldn't have standings and scanning skills at first.

I was thinking more of the lines of bonus areas, where miners can go to get a little extra as reward for their dedication to a faction, or when they want to go somewhere else for a change. But of course this is just an idea. There are many other ideas and options. Just because I have a possible idea how to work this out doesn't mean it'll get implemented, that's not what the CSM is for. It was more to get the ball rolling and entice the community and other CSM candidates to think about new mining content.

Originally by: Makimera

One of the things I had in mind as long-term project was pushing for making the NPC factions completely dynamic, each with their own objectives and competition for resources, and that they would recruit players on their own initiative for missions against other factions. But maybe we'll already see the start of this in Faction Warfare.

I'm sceptical. I would hate to see it turn into some boring Second Life hangout. All depends on the way it is implemented, so I'd have to see it first before I can comment.

Originally by: Makimera

The main things I have a problems with in the current state of the game:

The inability to deal with known criminals, griefers, and other scum that hides in highsec. Lofty definately needs to go as well.

Lack of content (both PVE and PVP) for solo players and small corps/groups of friends. I hope faction warfare will be a step in the right direction though.

Boring R&D, mining and production. Needs to be much more dynamic. Also needs UI overhaul.

It'd be expected of the CSM to research all consequences of an alteration to the current mechanics, and discuss it with the playerbase as well before submitting it to CCP for feedback. It'd go through a lot of iterations, and this would shed light on the types of players that might find themselves at a significant disadvantage. Compensations must be made as to not upset the delicate balance of game mechanics too much in the economic aspects of the game.

Errm well, while we are with real life analogies, what if someone was convicted for beating up a granny and stealing her wallet, and shortly after release is seen at the mall again, stalking elderly people with his baseball bat and clearly peeking in their handbags? Then, some worried people call the police but get laughed at, and the police instead guards the guy, right up the moment where he whacks another granny squarly in the face, snatches her bag, and tossing it to his associate who makes off with it on his scooter. A bystander tries to pull the guy off the scooter but is quickly clubbed down by the police, while the scooter makes its escape.

Police arrests the robber and confiscates his bat but releases him after he spends a few hours pricking paper scraps in the park. Upon leaving the police station, an insurance agent hands him a brand new baseball bat, while his associate comes to pick him up and shares the contents of the bag with him.

Now, I think the fixes are obvious: Allow bystanders to deal with known criminals, and have harsher consequences for crime.

Agreed that this might be an issue, especially if you have lag and accidentally activate a gun on a wreck you meant to salvage because the enemy you planned to fire on was already destroyed.

Seperate popup warning for actions that trigger immediate concord response and the more plain acts that every PVPer already disabled years ago, I'd say, unless someone has a better idea.

Originally by: Zareph

I've already seen that happen in Ultima Online, where almost everyone went to live in the safe area permanently and the PVP areas died out almost completely, so no. It also wouldn't work with Eve's economy. I have no problem with PVP, as long as it's not a free-loot-for-all situation which suicide ganking is nowadays.

There are 9 candidates, and each will have stronger and weaker aspects. While I might be more orientated towards the independant and somewhat peaceful players, I'm sure there will be other candidates that have other specializations and have more experience in other parts of the game.

I do rather like this idea. I'm presently slowly learning the ropes of being an anti-pirate and while there's plenty of opportunities to do that sort of thing in NRDS 0.0 space, it would be even better if there were possibilities for anti-piracy vigilantism in Empire.

Some sort of global flag where if a person aggresses on someone, in addition to CONCORD beatdown, it would be perfectly legal for anyone in empire to legally whack him for a few hours would bAe particularly nice.

This could be a possibility to cut down on crime AND allow way more opportunities for PVP in empire.

im a pirate. I play eve to pirate. to kill other players, to take there stuff, and to punish those who would like to fly across empire AFK in a hauler full of expensive stuff thinking they are safe.
I will steal peoples stuff, I will war dec a industry corp, I will probe someone out on mission and attack them.

On the other hand, I will help nOObs, i will give them advice and isk to get them started. I love this game, and wnt new player to enjoy it as much as me, no matter what way they choose to play eve. Im not a bad person because i pirate, Its just a game.

Why am i writing this? well...

I just voted for Ankhesentapemkah with all 3 of my accounts and I am already getting stick for it Laughing

To be honest, i voted for Ankhesentapemkah becasue as far as i can see she is the only candidate with enough integrity.
I also really dont want the Goons to win Wink
I live in empire, its my home. I dont wanna vote for some 0.0 fat cat blob lover.

There really was no choice on who to vote for. I did alot of thinking on it.
So in summery, you just got 3 votes off a pirate YARRRR!!
