-In addition to getting to know some of 2018’s most promising CSM candidates, this years roundtable takes on war decs, balancing, transparency, and what each candidate thinks will be the next CSM’s biggest challenge

Suitonia: Our only incumbent on the show, Suitonia is best known for his prolific content creation on YouTube and Good Posting. As a CSM representative he’s been a huge contributor to CCP’s recent balancing efforts, particularly on Assault Frigates, underused Destroyers, and T1 Cruisers. Suitonia seeks reelection this year on the back of his packed resume, long list of endorsements, and a proud performance on CSM12.

Commander Aze: Try, try, try again. Commander Aze has run for CSM several times before, coming close but never being elected. Aze hopes to follow in the foot steps of Mike Azariah and have his persistence pay off this year. What’s different this year around? In addition to deepening his background with empire gameplay like the War Dec Project, Aze has expanded his horizons to include both wormholes and nullsec.

Brisc Rubal: Brisc is running to represent the line members of the Imperium and nullsec alliances around the game. A faithful pilot of the Initiative, Brisc has seen the PVE and PVP offerings of nullsec both large and small but is not an FC, director, or diplomat. But he does have leadership experience IRL where he has been involved in US politics for quite some time. He’s hoping his professional lobbying expertise blended with his everyman EVE experience makes him an effective member of the CSM.
