KEROSIINI-TERO 'Kero', a balanced choice for CPM2

Kero is a balanced representative for healthier game.

Able to look both sides of the coin.
Especially in game design, there are several stances to
consider and the truth is often in between.

There's no room for fanaticism in cpm.




Hello, I'm KEROSIINI-TERO, or Kero, as people on comms know me.

I have been a very active duster since May 2012 and have tested almost every thing there is in Dust and I remember well what was good before and what was bad. I believe we need to learn from our past mistakes!
I did PC in the past but nowadays I've purposefully stayed away remaining in essence politically neutral.

Dust will always have a place in my heart and I want the game to stay healthy and alive!


I am:
Offering much in the field of game design
Able to see past my own perspective, taking other views into consideration
Able to change my stance if you have good arguments to support yours
Able to admit when I am wrong =)
Able to criticise CCP when needed
NOT a candidate for any single playstyle or preference!



AGENDAS:
- Pro-choice: PROMOTING THE PLAYER ABILITY TO CHOOSE. Game design should avoid no-brainer scenarios but instead offer several viable decisions for players. This is especially true in weapons and fittings and in minimising the FOTM. In this context, tiericide is good as it gives more depth.

- Anti-lag: Ensuring smooth gameplay is vital, and for that purpose some sacrifices might be acceptable. No one likes to play slideshow.

- Pro better smoother UI

- Pro player satisfaction in order to retain both old and new Dust players. We need players to keep the game alive!

- Pro new game modes: that is the content we need

- Pro real market

- Against 'money grab' design mentality while accepting the game needs to profit CCP

- Promoting player interaction and co-operation; this is the essence of good online gaming!




If any of these points sounded sensible to you, I will appreciate your vote.
I thank you all!
Smile

Yours,
KEROSIINI-TERO aka Kero

Appreciate your words and support, Z.
I certainly was thinking out this for long and made it public the last moment.

Also I can honestly say that you would be getting my second votes as you have very sensible opinions as well and are able to discuss!

Had a bit of a chat with you on STF on an alt earlier today, and I'd love to speak in a somewhat more formal manner about your ideas for FW as I think you might be not understanding some of the fundamental problems about the system and things that it experiences.

I am also somewhat concerned with your presentation of yourself to the community as (from what I've seen) you're representing yourself as though you are going to push CCP to changes about things, when in reality all you are actually doing is performing the role of advisor, information gatherer and community relay.

Thanks for the polite message.


Yes I am willing to learn more.


No I am no way thinking that I would be pushing or forcing anything. That's not me.
Yes I do very well know that cpm is only a medium between players and devs - from the player side.


On a chat I was asked what I bring for dust or what things I would like to improve.
Then made a short list which began: "I advocate the following".
Maybe some chat partners missed or misunderstood the word.
Never intended to imply otherwise.


And please note, even the things I'm advocating I am willing to yield if there is a sensible reason why not.

I try to be polite most of the time kero, but I can really come off as a prick. It's usually the lack of tone in text and that I kind of get frustrated easily. I do appreciate that you actually attempted to talk about stuff though.

KEROSIINI-TERO's stance on possible port is:

All current CPM efforts should be focused on making Dust better and healthier game with in perfect scenario even rising
playerbase.
Reasoning: if Dust gets bad reputation, the playerbase dies or is barely break-even profitwise for CCP, then the chances are minimal for any port to happen. And if any of those bad things happen, Dust most likely dies. Which we do not wish.

It's CCP's business decision where they are going to port, if at all.

While I am not opposing the porting, I am platform neutral.

I, KEROSIINI-TERO, thank everyone for the votes, both primary and secondary!


I am humbled by the amount of trust you guys have given me.
14th position is a good position, considering I did almost zero campagning.


This will give me more confidence in continuing constructive posting on the forums, and maybe running a real campaign next year.



THANK YOU AND HAPPY DUSTING FOR TIMES TO COME!
