CSM9 - Day 288

Tuesday is patch day. The release, Tiamat launches on Tuesday, February 17th. The patch notes are up. Please read them.
  • Changed missile launchers to require the missile skill they use. Example: Cruise Missile Launcher I now requires the Cruise Missiles skill at level 1
  • Energy Neutralizers and Nosferatus are no longer affected by the power grid reduction bonus of the Guardian, Basilisk and Etana.
With it being the week before release things have been puttering along. We had our normal meeting on Thursday which was just a quick brush up on what is coming in Tiamat as well as the progress over some things discussed during the summit. With the release around the corner everyone is head down and working.

Last week we had new apparel for the mystery code holders released. This week, the second skin for Fanfest ticket holders has been released. If you are planning to buy a ticket you will receive all of the skins still.

Fanfest is fast approaching. There are all sorts of little changes coming up. One of them is that the alliance panel has been changed to the corporation and alliance panel.

For the lore inclined, another video was released by the Scope discussing a possible Sisters of Eve conspiracy.


Today is the last day for CSMX applications. CCP Leeloo tweeted on the 12th that she had approved over fifty applications. There has been some question over why we have so many applicants. My theory is that the requirement for releasing your real name was dropped.

The candidate list will be out on the 23rd. Cap Stable is still putting out interviews but they are not taking anymore.  The CSM announcement forum is stuffed full of candidate posts. Only ten days until voting starts. I spent some time mulling what I want from my CSM member. It is not just their platform it is the person that I would be giving my support to.

However, work doesn't stop just because the candidate season is in. We're really starting to integrate into confluence and activity levels have increased for some of us.  I can only hope that those running are running with the intent to be productive and proactive. There is so much that you can accomplish with some time and energy.

  1. I'm afraid most of the new candidates are simply naive and has no idea what commitment CSM is. If they get elected, they'll be useless/inactive.
