I was indeed wondering how DUST players would be adequately represented on the CSM. So I find it a great idea that you guys are going to give DUST their own group right off the bat.

Will the CSM and the War Council eventually meet together? I would like to feel confident that both groups will interact heavily in ensuring the game heads in a direction that is as conjoined together as I want to see it in the future.


The EVE Online Council of Stellar Management is excited to work with the War Council and will be included in their communication channels with CCP. Working together towards the future of the EVE Universe is everyone's goal.

I hope this goes well since it has a lot of potential.

The idea that players had direct input into the development of the game, instead of just suggestions and hoping they get read is something I've always liked about CCP.

How are members of this council being chosen? I know in your thread that you said it was based on player commitment and helpfulness but those are subjective things at best. I mean not to say anything derisive of this as I think such a system is wonderful and I am quite excited to have such a system in place. CCP's involvement with the player base is one of the big pulls towards CCP games for me. My only concern/question is how will the devs/mods or whoever is doing the chosing insure that the members of the council are not biased towards specific players or groups and or how will the selection process be non-biased if that is possible at all?

Sounds like an awesome plan but will people who aren't on the council be able to vote?


We had some difficulty trying to decide how voting would work in a free-to-play game, where you can have unlimited accounts. We will be working with the War Council and the community to try and shape what elections will look like in the future.


Simply candidate needs to have atleast x month old active character and x real forum posts. That should do it nicely and CCP should have the tools for checking forum posts and activity.

A good question which deserves an answer Smile

So initially we looked at having an open application process followed by a voting process, however, as time is genuinely of the essence we felt that the best course of action was to handpick our pilot group based on an interview held with our Community Team. Had we gone with the first route we would have been looking at putting the first council together around August due to Fanfest 2013 and vacation which follows shortly afterwards.

Our aim is to have this council working with development teams to shape future content in DUST 514 as well as establishing how the full council will work and this is when all of you will have the opportunity to shape and effect change much like in the EVE Online Council of Stellar Management. Leaving this process to August would mean a lot of missed opportunity to have a group of council members engaging the community and bringing that feedback directly to the development teams as well as senior and executive producers.

Will we have at least a representative for each language? I would feel better if we could talk to our representatives in our language and then he or she can report in english in the council

The whole thing is good news ! It is through that kind of interactions with the community that CCP makes a difference with your usual game dev. So witnessing the birth of a Dust 514 CSM is a very very very good thing.

I get the whole handpick thing as the mecanics behind voting for a Dust CSM has to be entirely build from scratch due to the F2P nature and the fact that well.....no one did that before.

One thing i would support though is the remark i quote from shaman oga. Even though, it would a hell of a huge council if you would have to add one representative per language. But i guess spanish, chinese, german, french and english would be pretty good for starter.

With competition like Iron Wolf and a few of the others actively in IRC, I strongly doubt I would have any pull here. Regardless, now that I know CCP is actively looking to involve us like this, I greatly look forward to getting my recording set up all squared away so that I can start putting out tutorials and tips for new players.

Aside from being an active participant in IRC and the forums, are there any other criteria you're looking for from these / future candidates?

It's kind of difficult to accomodate every language but yes i think ligua fracas are the way to go. Using common languages that are spoken across many regions along with using translation services (not sure how well google translate works) is the best way to get good representation across the greatest number of ppl.


A great criteria would be to find representatives who have multi-language fluency so they can communicate to a wider audience without creating an overtly large and bloated council. Keep in mind though once this thing goes player elected council it may be difficult to accomodate non-english speakers as i imagine the english speaking population will have a large majority.

Hopefully CCP will figure out a way to decrease the communication gap.

How large a council are you currently planning on?

What are the criteria for selection that the interview will be based around?

How will you differentiate between who is constructive in content generation, and who is merely loud?
