The world releases a collective sigh, as Mynxee edges out Ankhewhatsit for chair.

Doesn't matter - she made it in - after spamming every trade hub .and scaring the carebears to vote with lies and propaganda. She should have been disqualified and banned for that shit.

So that's enough reason to quit EVE today - I will not play a game where she has a stake in the dev process - she's absolutely fucking clueless.

Who wants my stuff?

If you're really ragequitting because she got elected, then no, I don't want your tainted T1 ragequit junk. Grow up.

I'm never serious here, these boards are full of too easily trollable folks - the temptation to resist writing shitposts is too much for a simpleton like me to handle :-)

It won't be too bad...I'd rather hear Mynxee's new pushes for low-sec reform than more pushes for Faction Warfare.

I'm not that worried about it. I'm glad a lot of people voted. Though I'm surprised as many voted for Mynxee as they did. She's certainly an "EVE celebrity," and I have no doubt she has a lot of experience and opinions, but 90% of the time I hear people talk about her, it's to complain (mostly about how she's not a "true pirate," though I'm not sure what that means, exactly). I suppose that's the price of recognition.

Irony is that it's really only the factional warfare people that make any use of lowsec. They've debated it to death, and nothing lowsec can offer will help: better ratting and mining in 0.0/wormholes, better soloability in empire.

EVE's future is carebear anyways, that's why the focus on incarna, live events, and planetary industry. The growth is there, not in PvP.

Both Low-Sec and Factional Warfare are in dire need of some improvements. Also, it's possible that some of the L-sec changes will have a positive effect on FW and vice versa.

My problem with eve is, most of the games entire design direction places an emphasis on player emergent conflict as the source for all player vs. player combat.

Faction warfare content, on the other hand, is simulated conflict and this causes the rest of the game to break down. Any type of features you make to try and pit groups of one side against the other infinitely, meta-gamers will come along and find a way to break that content and exploit it (because thats what eve is about, if you can dream it, you can do it).

Now let's hope CCP doesn't blow up their servers with the Tyrannis-patch, otherwise the new CSM won't have that much use.

Congratulations to all the winners and alternates, and thanks to all the other players who also ran for the council.

Good luck to all with your new terms. I have followed a number of you who are now on the council and know you will be dedicated to making Eve a better game. Even though you may not often hear from the player base (we're probably busy playing the game) - it is good to know that CCP has allowed elected player representatives the opportunity to provide valuable input into the development process - somewhat unique in the gaming world IMO.

I'm slightly pissed the Ankhedumbass got a seat, but I don't think she can do any real harm, especially with Mynxee as Chairwoman. I'm sure pretty much everyone else elected realizes what horrible ideas she has, and will block any truly stupid ones.

While I had to quit Eve because of the community, I have to say, it's awesome to see the election and the commenter's reaction.

Eve is truly a great game because of this and the more power they can give this council, the better it is.

This is a sandbox game that is all about politics and relationships. It is awesome that there is a ingame politician that gets enough votes to get elected while also gaining the scorn of the forum trolls.

The community IS the game!

that's true in a sense. The human enemy makes for a good enemy, but in EVE - where everyone is the enemy, and the worst elements of humanity are celebrated, it just got old after awhile.
