    Troll Candidate

    Is there the necessary core voter base to support a candidate on a platform primarily consisting of trolling the other candidates?

    I don't mean actually undermining the CSM process itself, I mean puncturing the self-importance and combo-breaking the circle jerk of the other members in particularly bombastic, trolling style.

    CCP doesn't actually have to divulge information with the council, let alone actually allow anyone into the CSM.
    The only purpose troll candidates serve is to gum up the works for the first little bit or so, then they'd be ignored and communication would be cut off by the CSM/CCP.
    All in all, a waste of a vote.

    good idea bro

    I doubt they'd get enough votes to be any use. I think serious platform would probably give the troll more chance of getting in, people take the CSM way to seriously now to allow this to happen again.

    A combination of serious views on the actual gamedesign issues, and a promise of not taking the other candidates seriously (including doing, for example, dares voted for in an FHC poll such as attempting to flash hilmar etc) then?

    Although then you aren't particularly different from several of the other candidates.

    Pretty sure his name was Darius III and he got a free trip to Iceland out of it.
    Ripard Teg (among others)... what's our new alliance called again?
    I was once Deemed Worthy To Wield The Banhammer, to good effect. Or at least, that's what most of EVE believes.

    Just a quick question along those lines, how many votes do you get? And when is voting day? And can you vote for someone multiple times?

    mazz's platform was trolling the entire EVE player base, rather than just the rest of the CSM, as Darius did.
    Ripard Teg (among others)... what's our new alliance called again?

    There should have been a FHC Collective Candidate, whose stance on every issue was decided via forum polls. eg.

    a) boost lowsec
    b) boost nullsec
    c) push hilmar down the stairs at lunch

    I wouldn't say I only trolled the CSM, I did fair job of trolling the players too. So many tears in my inbox. Really having a good time with the Election I am. Some highlights include such gems as:"thats ok Mr Scammer, I already petitioned to get my vote back" and "No one like you would ever get elected" Me:"You mean REelected right?" Victim: "This game sucks"

    A guy wrote the best tear filled letter to Scooter talking about your candidate is making YOUR WHOLE ALLIANCE look bad. Few hours ago I trolled Prom to a bubbling froth, then pointed out my combat record far superior to his, he was raging. Good times these elections, good times...

    The REAL tears will come from Mittani if/when I get a seat. Should a miracle happen and I get top 7 seat, I will have to quit trolling though, and that would be a shame. I can rest easy knowing I did everything to win though. Should I fail to place, I wont cry. I am having a blast extorting votes from pods, scamming and pumping out the mis-information. Too bad the election is only 2 weeks long, I could do this year round.
