Iron Wolf Saber for CPM 1

#1 Posted: 2014.06.17 20:47  |  Edited by: Iron Wolf Saber
I am a gamer at heart.

I love the stories, the people, the places, the sounds, and the mere idea of doing things reality doesn't let you do. In CCP's own word's Life Experience was poorly designed.

In 2006 I joined Eve Online as Nova Fox and fell in love with the universe how it was constantly expanding and evolving; and ultimately how much power players really had very few games empower players did. The simple fact I progressed while being on massively long deployments in the military was what led me to continue on playing it.

Being an artist and stuck on a real life carrier, during downtime on the boat I also started to draw fan-ships for Eve Online. My very first ship I ever drew was a landing ship designed to function as a mobile base and lander for armies on eve's planets inspired by what it was called at the time phase 3. Phase 3 was an ambiguous and ambitious idea from CCP to get the game on the planetside; somehow someway and at the time someday. I imagined Eve being able to get ground side and I didn't stop with the lander ships, I also started a project back then called Planetfall that would describe how New Eden would play on the ground.

The details of the dream changes but the dream continues on; to make an awesome experience of New Eden on the ground.

So when Eve FPS was announced at the Fanfest I was excited to finally see the phase 3 becomming a game and immediately hopped aboard for the ride. I wanted to see this game become the best it could and help every way I can; building community; building ideas, building core spirit of the game. The game went live beta and I was enrolled in as Iron Wolf Saber; my involvement only grew further as I was able to directly give feedback to the game itself. It was not long before CCP Dolan tapped my shoulder for War Council. To help establish the elections and establish governance for the first elected Council and provide similar function as the CSM if needed. It was originally supposed to be something of a 3 month long stint. Then Uprising 1.0 happened. Dust 514 what was supposed to been a resounding success fared excessively poorly reviewers and ultimately player's hands. The Renamed War Council, to the Council of Planetary Management 0, was flipped on to full CSM function.

History has come and gone, CPM 0 is officially the longest council term in the history of New Eden; but we're here finally. The toll on the road was heavy, we lost a number of the original hand picks due to changes in the game and the long term struggle to establish the legitimacy of the CPM. I am still proud to declare that CPM 1 Elections are on the way and that CPM will likely to have more establishment than the CPM before them did.

As a CPM 0 Member I know that to promise to be the Scout CPM or HAV CPM or Planetary Conquest CPM is just plain silly concept as often the skills involved in making those critical are not critical to the CPM as a whole. I also know the key critical difference of CPM expectations from CCP and the community when it comes to what is the difference between player representation and player representative.

So what sort of CPM member will I continue to be? A smart; creative; energetic CPM that has fell in love with the idea of having New Eden on the ground and I will continue to support and help evolve the idea to something fun, feasible, and well taken care of by the community and developers alike. As a veteran CPM member I can offer plenty of help with CPM 1 on the more difficult decisions and times they will be facing. I have been known by fellow CPM 0 members to be the solid ground of reason and calm in the group that has prevented many hastey mistakes and I will continue to provide that for CPM 1, voter willing. I know that CPM 1's term will likely be more difficult than CPM 0's and to continue on just speaks volume of passion I have for that dream of that great game for New Eden on the ground. I am also the only CPM 0 candidate running.

I will continue to support Dust 514 in all of its endeavours even if it goes beyond the launch of Legion.
I will continue to support Legion into fruition to ensure it is worthy of succession of the dream as the cost of this pursuit is already too high.
I will continue to protect the sanctity of the Council.
I will continue to support the community's desire for a better game grounded on sound logic.

This is Iron Wolf Saber and I am announcing my candidacy for CPM 1.
<^-^> Happy Hunting.

IWS's posting is... incendiary, but I firmly believe he's a good man for the job.
I think it's especially essential that some experience from CPM0 carries on.

I'm glad to see IWS running. For one, I'm excrutiatingly curious how the numbers for the first ever CPM election will turn out, and having an incumbent running will be interesting.

But the big thing is that we do not want the CPM to lose the headway made so far over the last year. There is logic in having someone who had participated in the previous year's discussions and can continue to hold CCP accountable for them. While IWS badly needs to skill up "Tact" to 5 with his forum posting, he's a wealth of knowledge, and while you can complain about the tone of his posts, you cannot complain that he doesn't communicate enough.

CPM1 Elect. Thanks for all your support. soraya@biomassed.net for ideas, thoughts, and feedback.

Please, community, put Cross and IWS together on CPM. I beg of you. You might not like IWS - but please admit that he's gone full out in the responsibility of his position and interaction with us. No other CPM stood up to us the way he did, communicating constantly the way the Devs should of always been.

Putting Cross in with IWS is a recipe for success for us.

I am not who you think I am, only but just a dream.

IWS,
We've locked horns (pens? keyboards? whatever P) on more than one occasion. While I can't claim to always agree with your ideas, or their presentation, I also cannot honestly deny the simple fact that you have - more than once - caused me to think differently about a subject or the game.

I make active efforts to be reasonable and constructive in my posts but I was hard put to remain so when I first saw the concept of tiericide floated. What I thought it meant at the time was extremely frustrating to me as I mistakenly believed it would strip important progression out of the game. You however kept the conversation rolling, avoiding hyperbole or personal attacks even in the face of my rather dogged resistance to the subject, until I finally began to grasp that well done tiericide is about creating unique and effective roles for everything, which is an idea I fell in love with. Because bluntly it lives at the heart of balance and a balanced sandbox offers players more choices and more freedom. (Which is what I'm all about).

The point - As I'm sure you know working on the council is as much about working with the other council members effectively as it is about any specific topic. While I don't expect a CPM 1 term together (if the voters so choose) to be free of disagreements or debates I do feel confident that even in the midst of such "confrontations" we could both keep level heads and be constructive, professional, and focus on the good of the game/player base over our own personal biases.
I firmly believe this because, although it wasn't in chambers, we've already done this.

While CPM 1 will rightfully be composed of whoever the players decide to elect, your passion and dedication are evident and in many ways your body of work speaks for itself. It is my view that anyone who hasn't formed an opinion of you during your current term as CPM should take the time to read what you've written and give due consideration there to.

In voting for a CPM, as in building castles in the sandbox, more choices trump fewer choices. I'm glad the voters have another dedicated candidate to consider when making their selection.

Welcome to the race o7

I don't believe I've ever used a controller in an interaction with IWS. We've debated, but not via the in game interface nor been (that I can recall) on opposing teams in game.

Unless you are saying some players use their PS3 controllers to type on the forums? (or that pens are a PC exclusive implement Blink)

This is excellent news.

While by his own admission his posts can be a little incendiary the work he's done as secretary of the CPM has been much appreciated by many in the community.

It would also be tremendously helpful to those candidates that are successful to have a seasoned voice with them on the council and to provide continuity to minimise the required settling in period for them.

If I'm successful or not, I would still want IWS being on the CPM1 as a great asset and he would get my support.

Iron Wolf Saber, I am glad to see you running.

Now let me let you in on a little secret:

- When I post, I wright the entire post in a word processor program.
- Then I read the entire post over again to do copyediting and to make sure it is clear. I look for stuff that could be misinterpreted, or stuff that felt good to type, but does not reflect what I truly believe when I actually take the time to think about it.
- If it is controversial I may go grab a coffee and then read it again when I get back.
- Then I copy and past it into a post on the forum.
- Then I scan through again to look for copyediting issues. (Sometimes the Spell check on my word processor is set to Canadian English while my browser Spell Check is set to American English.)
- Then I hit the Preview button and read the entire post again, carefully, line by line.
- Only then do I hit “Post”.
- Then I read my new post, usually to find a glaring error that I somehow missed the first four times I read it. So I edit my post to correct the issue.

Stupid mistakes and stupid statements still slip through occasionally, but I think overall I am well respected for the quality and thoughtfulness of my posts on this forum. Now you know why.

I see you mentioned supporting DUST 514 but did not mention supporting wanting Legion on PS4 at some time in the future, is that because you do not see multi platform legion as do able by CCP or that you believe it is a low priority?

This is why IWS has had enough time to make 14,672 forum posts, and you've only had time to write 3,031. ;)

Yeah...but at least 8 or 9K of IWS posts were retractions, clarifications, or other derivative activity from the actual OPs.

Most of the posts I do what fox gaiden describes never sees the light of day by anyone. I typically hit the delete all key at the end.

except half the time he "stood up" to us he should have been standing up for us....

no IWS doesn't have our best interests at heart. only his own...I wont take from him all the hard work he has done, and I believe he is passionate about the game, but he does not represent the community, and i believe that's the most important thing a cpm must do.

I also do not give him a pass for how disrespectful he is in his posts, and he has made no effort to mature in this matter, voting him in to cpm 1 will only make this monster more terrible, since he will see a second term as acceptance of his abuses.

I would consider voting for you Saber. I certainly dont always agree with you - however that being said, you are always around, you have constantly posted on the forums and such for the whole time.

In my humble opinion, you were the only CPM0 worth a damn to the general community.

This is the turning point, the rising of the tide. No fear inside
