If elected As Your CSM rep I promise to do everything I can to help support the games mechanics and its Players needs.
Experience in Eve
For the most part My game in eve is *Solo industry /// mining in the hi sec areas of New Eden. Where My experience will benefit as a CSM will come from my RL experience as a gamer over the years ,because of the vast diversity that is inherent in Eve Online.
Real life experience
Been A (hard core) heh gamers since the release of WC3 , before that Wolfinstein and Doom on the dial-up BBS systems of old. I played the entire series of Ultima since Ultima 3 , I beta tested UO in the second wave beta trials and was briefly a member of the UO Smurfs team until it was disbanded. After that in 2005 I created and account in Eve Online and briefly tried the game but the learning curve was too great for me and I was disappointed that it had no joy stick control so I went to SWG ( a big mistake) until the game closed and I returned to Eve Online in 2009 as John Ellsworth and have been a happy camper ever since.
What are the top three issues currently facing EVE and why?Subscriber numbers and or New bro turnover.
The alienation between Hi and low sec player base.
The several new MMo's coming out Soon , that are similar to Eve On line and are considered to be a threat because of their ability to lure players of Eve On lineaway.
Why will you be an effective CSM member?I will be affective as a member of the CSM because of my may years of experience in on line gaming industry as a player.
In what way do you think the CSM can be improved?Improving the CSM IMO involves better communication between CCP and It's player base in an environment that would promote out of the box ideas between the to.
In your opinion, how can CCP keep EVE fun for as many players as possible?I believe it will take a new look on things, from a different prospective that is ATM not what CCP is looking for in Eve Online.
