Welcome to Jester's Trek.
I'm your host, Jester. I've been an EVE Online player for about six years. One of my four mains is Ripard Teg, pictured at left. Sadly, I've succumbed to "bittervet" disease, but I'm wandering the New Eden landscape (and from time to time, the MMO landscape) in search of a cure.

The CSM is worthless

Seen on Reddit:


Let's be very very clear: I didn't do this. A very smart CCP dev did this. Still, it looks like I owe someone else a hoodie.

  1. Is this happening? Truly? Hold on, I need to go buy a lottery ticket.

  2. We're approaching Mittens levels of smug.

    1. I have to admit that I laugh every time I read some variant of "CSM8 has done nothing." Granted, we didn't put a sword through space Barbies but we didn't have the opportunity to, so we concentrated on asking for things to be... you know... ADDED to the game...

    2. the problem is either efficacy, or marketing. Since you have done things since getting in there, basically the problem is the former.

      until you can have a "CSM did a b and c" type list, it's just a 'trust us' kind of situation, which never works in eve

      but yes, I agree that the csm has been productive

  5. Bravo! I know that's not a high content reply, but you deserve some thanks on this one.

  6. The whole art of pretending relevance as CSM consists of figuring out a future CCP development and place yourself ahead of it before it goes public. :P

  7. Been following this blog for almost a year now (Since I started EvE) and I´ve always shy away from commenting; but this news truly deserve a Thank you very much" reply!

  8. I think the AU equivalent value is equally awesome

  9. Now they just need to change the default scan ranges of ships.

    It seems silly that every ship in game, even my lonely pod, has the exact same scan distance!

  10. and if they fail on getting the AU to input properly, just having it as display only is a win

  11. Its not an Apocryphallic change, but having recently started banging about in losec, this is something that was greatly needed.

  12. I gasped aloud when I saw this at work just now. If they ever add customizable presets, I'll squeal like a little girl at work.

    Thank you, Mr. Teg, from the cockles of my heart. Perhaps even the sub-cockle area.

  13. Did you ever post the pictures you took of the hoodies you (and your wife) made?

  14. Copied from your 2013 february junk drawer:

    I'm still compiling a list of the "first things" I'm going to ask of CCP devs if I'm elected to CSM8. I mentioned one of them last month: I'm going to ask CCP Fozzie why all ships have to accelerate to warp at the same rate. -> Done

    I'm going to beg CCP Punkturis or someone on her team to change the directional scan distance text entry field into a distance slider or maybe just include a slider as an option that sets the number. Under the slider, little ticks for 1m km, 100m km, 1AU, 5AU, and 10AU. -> Done

    For CCP Optimal or someone on his team, please save my watch list on the client somewhere and if I disconnect and rejoin the same fleet within a few minutes, try to reestablish my watch list. It's so annoying to have to rebuild it manually.

    -> You should work on that. Maybe automatic rejoin to fleet as well ? (lf you reconnect within 5 minutes or something ?).

    And finally, I'm going to ask CCP Soundwave to either abolish clone timers or create a skill that shortens them, and also create a second tier Infomorph Psychology skill so I can have more jump clones. -> Done

    3/4 ain't bad, but maybe there is another CCP dev who wants a hoodie ?

    1. Yeah, I brought #3 up and it turns out it wasn't as easy as I thought. I'm not giving up on it, though.
