Someone needs to make a witty comment about Pokey in this thread. How did that guy miss getting elected TWICE?

By far the best CPM candidate to never get elected!

On the other hand, it did leave him free to talk about stuff.

Judge was really the best indicator of where vehicles were headed with this game. People talk **** about him but he was one of the smartest people Ive met through here and he was always fun to fly with / against. He knew it was a fools errand trying to represent the vehicle side of things and he bailed.

More power to him as far as I'm concerned.


Instead of TRYING to at least get on the right track for vehicles he gave up.

He may be smart, but he was a coward.

He had more important **** to do and realized his efforts wouldn't pan out in any kind of direction he felt was meaningful or helpful. He made a choice for him and went with it. Its a thankless volunteer position that makes you a target for armchair warriors like you and me, so I can't say I blame him.

And lets stop this bullshit of CPM members having any meaningful sway on game design. I never ran so cant know the inner workings of CPM, but every indication points to a fairly inderect relationship when game design decisions are concerned. Number tweaks and little balance shuffles maaay have taken some of their direct input into play, but I doubt much else did. Acting like any one CPM member could have gave it the ol fight and turned around a longstanding trend of wtf is just wtf in and of its wtfing self.

Wtf.


It seemed to me that Judge bought into the general public's view of the CPM, and when he got in and found out what the job really was, he bailed.

The CPM did not have any real Power, but they did have access to the Devs, so if they were capable of making a convincing argument, they would at least have Influence. Judge had the persuasive skills to make a difference, if he had stuck it out. He had already convinced the Dev's of stuff before he got onto the CPM. But I think he ran for CPM with unreasonable expectations, and then bailed when he learned the truth.

Do I need to be mauled by Aeon Amadi in the middle of the tundra in order to get elected?

I love that this is actually what happened within about 3 posts.

Just to continue the trend, I hate Judge the most because he got the devs to unnerf the swarm launcher. But they never managed to fix it, so it just became a broken nightmare for all the Dust-Flies.

I actually think that's why he left... couldn't live with himself after that.



But apart from that he was alright... Absolutely hated me though, because I had no issues strategically hovering over other pilots... Knowing full well their first reaction to being shot was to hit the after-burner and fly straight up. lololol.

You got to get mauled and surprise buttsex in the middle of the tundra, left for dead, come back somehow, and then murder people, in order to possibly get elected. Even though your older campaigns are miles better.

Wouldn't surprise me. I'd probably have to be CPM0'ed by CCP to ever end up on the council.

I wonder if Pokey would still be as active here if he was indeed elected as CPM. Straight
Being a CPM does seem for the most part to either burn a person out or possibly discourage them by finally letting them look behind the curtain. IDK for sure as I definitely wasn't even a potential candidate for CPM. I think that was for pissing the other CPMs off and continuously pointing out seeming missteps by CCP with DUST. Other than that, I wasn't really known because I am just a trouble making alt after all. Cool

Oh. I almost nearly forgot my own answer.

For me, I most disliked Spero because he seemed to use CPM to his own benefit over using his position for the game's benefit.

Haha a fair point! I can imagine that being constantly pestered by players for information because CCP is rarely forthcoming with it, probably gets exhausting over time.

I know that even not being on CPM, it can become exhausting trying to deal with all of the swirling bitterness and anger in the community, so who knows how I would have fared compared to the others.

I think at the very least, while Biomassed is certainly not CCP exclusive, it does keep me engaged on some level since we force ourselves to do an episode every week no matter what (save our one episode post-christmas where we take a break)

Well, you'll always be a CPM for a misinformed few, Pokey. Blink
I think some as at least a joke would have ran with the claim of being a CPM but I guess you have integrity (and you're very serious especially when it comes to your podcast Lol).

We need to elect shining memebers of our community to a higher position, not in the way of CPM or IPM? Whatever the fudge trickling dongers of space mosquitos call their CPMs.

We need to need a community position, trusted people, to talk to CCP about our ideas, so they don't get flushed.

Let's call them, Community Salt Lickers. Or Community Union Negotiators and Testers.
Or Definitive Illuminators of Communty Kind.

Klingon Aviation and Widespread Kontrol for the people who use Dropships, that could be the subsidiary title of our annointed community members.

So who do you think the most hated CPM of all time is?
Of course at this point, it really doesn't matter but I saw an opportunity for discussion that I had to take.

I have my thoughts but I will wait for a few replies.


Judge?
NAH! at worst that CPM letdown some folks playing a game.

INSTEAD

Heres my vote for most H A T E D!!! CPM!
The CPM who weeks in ADVANCE knew about Red Wedding and YET!! this same CPM creates a thread in GD promoting ticket sales to Fanfest!!

Here ya go!! spend thousands of dollars on plane tickets to go there to here abot Red Wedding.

That was despicable.

I mean how hard was it for this CPM to instead refrain from posting anything as a warning to those considering going to red wedding?

But nah!! lets **** folks over to get CPM free plane tickets to red wedding.

IS SUPER SERIOUS BUSINESS

And for a while the running joke was that I was the 8th CPM member for all 3 council's. Sad part is that in many instances I did far more work than certain individuals who were on CPM, so any lingering confusion from others may actually be fairly justified.

In any case I'd still be interested in a real CPM position if they ever do something like that again, but I'll settle for the 8th seat a 4th time in a row if I must.

I would love to have seen Pokey and Ripley make the last CPM.

But you always have people that ignore red flags in others, or just can't see reason in general.
