Great news. All Hail The Mittani: Chairman for Life!

Mittani tends to be a polarizing, and somewhat infamous, figure within EVE, but that can be true of any politician. And the election process really has become a mirror of a real political process, which only adds another "game within a game" in EVE's already expansive sandbox.

I'm fine with the results of the election, and I think the CSM will be a good one. What I'm really happy about is the process, and the participation of the EVE community. What other game can claim to have such an event, in game, with as much interest and impact? Cool stuff.

Seriously? You know why there is a CSM in the first place, and you make profound descriptions like polarizing and "being a politician", as in the CSM even mattered? You EVE fans are indeed funny people, so blind, and yet you just dont care about that, good for you!

We have a Preschool nearby, the entire class is made of of presidential candidates and "politicians", all voted on by the folks in the city because they thought it would be cute..... i love the parallel, it is too delicious.

No idea what you're talking about, what your point is, or why you're so bitter.

Some people really like The Mittani, and some people don't. It's neither profound or a mystery to say that he can be polarizing. The election certainly was a political process, and the candidates, to different degrees, tried to gain votes throughout the process.

And yeah, I think the CSM can matter, as do probably most of the 59,000+ people that voted. Just because you're bitter and angry doesn't make people who disagree with you "blind".

You must be new at EVE. You graduate to bitter after couple of years in game.

CSM is a joke - always has been.

@Boardwalker I wasn't involved in the community enough to know how big a deal it was, but DAoC had "class leads", which were community members who were picked/elected (not sure which) to be a go-between for the players and the developers of their respective class.

Not quite the same, but your question reminded me of that.

haha, yeah, I hear ya. There are plenty of bitter vets around, for sure. As for myself, I've been around since 2006, which is perhaps not long enough to become one. Then again, if I ever became "bitter" about a game, the last thing I'd be doing is playing or talking about it--there are just too many other things to do.

@Vancha

I remember the class leads. One of my guildmates at the time was the lead for...animists, I believe. But yeah, I think the comparison is valid, as both situations are players interacting with devs about game changes/features.

CSM is nothing more than mini-game to distract subscribers from fact there is nothing important or really interesting being developed within the game while developers dancing around DUST bunnies and World of Vampires - for 3 years in a row.

Planet interactions combined with descent hassle? My spacepriest can do more money in a day of incursions than 3 PI maxed toons during a month.

Like them or not, the CSM will have an impact on the game for the next year.

CCP is doing things like reworking the ship tree/tiers/classification and probably rebalancing most of them throughout the year, something that will change the game in a major way.
Their first and probably most reliable feedback source will be the CSM, so hopefully more players will use this opportunity to improve both eve and their personal game.
