Hello everybody, I'm going to make this very quick :)

I have decided to run for CSM because of a great personal interest in the development and progression of EVE, and a mild frustration because I have seen so many good ideas from players not being brought to the attention of CCP for simple lack of a platform.

To my knowledge, the CSM was supposed to be that platform, so that's where I want to use it for!

A full list with items that I would like to promote in the CSM can be found on Eve-Files here.

You can find more information about me personally as well as in-game in the interview I did with Zarch AlDain for the Eve Tribune. The three main points from 'the list' are also discussed there.

If you have any questions, feel free to convo, post or mail them! (e-mail address is in the .pdf)
Kind regards,

Tim

Mashie Saldana brought something to my attention about T2 sentry drones that seems to make a lot of sense and would be extremely easy to implement. I will gladly add it the 'the list' to make sure it is brought up for consideration by CCP.

Mr Sokratesz, where do you stand on the alliance disbanding factor?

Will u be pushing for there to be a vote or a 24h grace period to disband alliance?

I was under the impression that CCP had already fixed this but the recent CVA trouble proved otherwise. I'm kind of torn between the following two arguments:

pro) Spies need a place in EVE and alliances need to secure themselves against it - it's part of human nature and diplomatics and has made EVE famous in the past, so it should not be removed.

con) It's a shame that years of work can end like that.

I would be against an alliance disband requiring a majority vote because that would make it 100% foolproof, but something like a grace period of 12 or 24 hours (not too long though!) in which a majority vote can overrule an initiated disband by one of the executors would seem a solution. That means executors have to pay attention and if spies succeed in a thorough infiltration or elusion it would still be possible.

An original & interesting workaround that does at least appease both sides of the argument.

You do appear to be the PVPers Politician for this campaign.

Moving on, where do you stand on present Factional Warfare mechanics, the ability for say Alliances to war dec individual corps in a militia without fear of retribution from associated militia corps? For example the Star Fraction factor, although I am sure there are other alliances who practise the same methods.

Well you have to admit that in the end, PVP is what makes eve tick, without it the producers would be out of a job and missionrunners out of a market for their LP and named loots.

If you have suggestions for the industrial side (carebear sounds so derogatory) please let them hear, because I have little to do with that side of the game in day-to-day EVE myself, but improvements to it are needed as much as to anything else in the game. I do not intend to ignore the large amount of players that enjoy EVE like that, but my experience there is limited so I may need a little more help Very Happy

I read a bit about that and indeed it sounds wrong but I don't think CCP anticipated on it. In this particular case I would be for treating the militia as an alliance only to the degree that the militia members can initiate combat with the wardeccing entity without concord intervention, but not the other way around, ergo the wardeccing entity can only shoot the specific corp they decced unless one fo the other militia members intervenes by agression or RR, then they are free to shoot back at them too. This way deccing a corp in a militia becomes a more risky enterprise but with a potential for a lot of targets.

Another interesting response, a very lateral way of thinking on the matter that again appeases both sides of the issue without necessarily unbalancing the mechanic to stop larger player alliances becoming too heavily involved.

Out of the current CSM crop, very few candidates caught my eye, and you were one of them (about 4, actually, so, yeah, you made my short list, hehe).
I happen to remember you pretty vividly even from your earlier days, and we never got into each-other's hair too much on anything that really matter, so that, in my book, means you're either thinking mostly the same way I am, or you're reasonable enough to understand something when told.

So far so good, until now you only raked up plus points Smile

Now however, we come to the tricky part.
You're mostly a PVP-oriented player, and your personal interests reflect that, as admitted by you personally and also highlighted by the items you chose to address in the interview, and most of the items on your PDF list.
When presented with a limited number of issues, you will have to pick a few to dedicate yourself to... so I'm asking myself - would you bother pushing things that CCP hasn't touched in ages in spite of people posting endlessly about it ? Or, would you bother picking things that are heavily economy-oriented, as opposed to combat-oriented ?

For instance, there's an upcoming change in Dominion that will affect everybody (even if most don't even realize it yet), and from where I'm standing CCP looks like it's about to make a HUGE mistake (and it could take a while after patch before it's noticed, let alone corrected). What would you do if elected to make fixing it (if it will actually be needed, of course) a top priority ? I mean, even if it's not yet insanely obvious, but it could become nasty in the future ?

...you know, things like that Wink

I saw your thread about the moons and really..I want to know what CCP has to say on that because it sounds like we're all gonna be in a world of pain =P. I was very tempted to add an item about moon minerals to my list, however I decided to wait until dominion before suggesting anything - if your predictions are even half accurate it will require CCP to take action on the matter.

In cases like that it helps that crazy people like you spend lots of time documenting the issues and I would be more than glad to help CCP become aware of it and help formulate a solution.

Do you have any thoughts on the situation with drones and having to tell them to do stuff 4-5 times before they will actually do as they are told and then a second or 2 later going back to whatever the hell they feel like doing?



Iím also kind of curios to hear your thoughts on the expansion name as it seems to be geared towards an effort to break the dominion of the large alliancesíTwisted EvilYARRRR!!
