Anyway, I did some CSM Voting on my accounts. I'm up in the air about the entire purpose of the CSM. It seems to be a fueled power trip of egos for the most part. I'm leery of how much CCP actually cares. I'm amused that we have a political system in the game.
Anyway, I don't actually like any of the candidates. I expected that. My game perceptions are based off of me being new and my living in low sec. The major players are carebears or nullsec sov types. Low Sec is again, the games gutter that no one wants us to be in.
I've read a lot of the CSM ranting aka debates and reasons on the forums while I was at work over the last few weeks. I have not developed a like for many. The opinions are so, incredibly self centered and beyond the scope of global game play that it makes me gag. Maybe I've spent to much time as a public servant and in the position of a goal that may not be a personal one of mine but is a general good type of thing.
Anyway, I decided to pick someone who would conflict with the Mittens. Not because they were my fav choice but because they had the balls to have played the game from the start and go against someone who had as different a game play style as they possibly could.
I don't know if my decision was informed or not. I'm okay with that. I dislike politics but I'm not one to decide that pretending ignorance is a valid, informed choice.
