End of an Era...

Not an EVE post, and very short.
Mostly for personal reference.

I play computer games. On my computer I have a bunch of old games, games I never play... also games I cant play (because I did not read the min. specs before I bought/downloaded), but want to play somewhen... when I get around to upgrading some components...

If you haven't played or read about SWTOR in the last year or two, then there might be spoilers ahead....

I can remember the moment I lost all interest in SW-TOR.
I can remember the very second. It is burned into my mind.

It was when that cut scene played, where the Sith and the Jedi were working together to build the secret base.

That was the end of my SWTOR career. And now it is gone from my PC...

Lorelei Ierendi, Act fast - Get 15% off Omega!

Just a quickie.

I got this mail on all my accounts, alpha and omega.

The fact that CCP sends these mails out is proof that they believe that the message reaches people.

Yet there was no mail reminding about the CSM elections....

Just saying.

I got into the final 14, which is my best result ever.... in the old days that would have been enough to have gotten me into the CSM! So thank you!
I got 694 votes, which I think is my worst result ever... which is probably a reflection of the people that didn't vote.
I did notice that my cross platform support (which haunted me for CSM 10... Tikktokk beware) was better than ever... so slowly my message seems to be spreading.

I am looking forward to other people's analysis of the voting... as being directly involved I cannot help but feel biased. I will anyway look at the numbers later in more detail!

Thank you all for voting.

CSM Elections - Results are in!

So the CSM election results are in. There were a few thousand less voters than last year... which probably means I got a few thousand less votes than last year!

I am looking forward to CCP publishing the voting data. Should be out soon!

CSM Elections...

So the CSM elections have started.

I checked my email.
 
I got a mail from CCP:
 
"Free MPT Certificates
On Selected Omega Packages"
Which I guess says it all…
 
#Whyshouldwecarewhenyoudonot?
 
Whatever. Just vote!

CSM Elections

The voting for CSM 13 starts next week.

Voting is important, whoever you vote for. Unfortunately there is no option yet to vote for "none of the candidates", although I at least would find it an interesting statistic.

Let's get this done!

CSM 13 Elections in June

CCP published a DEV BLOG about the CSM Elections.
About time!

So the voting is in the first week of June, set your calendars.

Remember it is important to vote, whoever you are voting for. Even if you have accepted that nothing can save or help the candidate of your choice. Your vote helps keep up the relevance of a conduit between players and developers. It shows the interest of the player base. If you don't vote, then you don't need to complain about the direction the game is taking, the microtransactions, the cash grabs and the stale PVE content.
