CSM Voting

It turns out that my hotel internet is great which means I can play Eve. After all, why else would someone go to another country? Besides the amazing food. However, I feel like babbling as I gorge.

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.

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday  so yay for unallocated skill points. Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked. In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
