corebloodbrothers, one of the main Fleet Commanders for Providence Bloc and a high ranking member of The Volition Cult [VOLT], has resigned his seat on the Council of Stellar Management (CSM) X. corebloodbrothers was elected to represent the interests of Providence Bloc and Null Security space, and can be considered the only NRDS representative in the council. His resignation comes as a complete shock to many.

Below is the resignation letter, as it was handed to CCP Games:

*Dear CCP_Leeloo,

I want to inform you i am resigning my place in CSMX. For me mixing the CSM spot, with running my allaince and RL has become too the point where i feel i cant manage all to the best of my abilities. I dont like to do a CSM half arsed, as it is an amazing position and oppertunity too get involved too the game i love till the day i die or closes.

Its maybe the dumbest decision, and i know we had a chat winter summit that helped me alot, and i am very greatfull for the trust you have put in me. I miss the meetings and such because of work, and feel by spamming confluence with a ton of ideas and posts isnt the best way forward.

For the haters and conspirators, CCP did not force this or ask this, i am not leaving disapointed in the CSM as a process and a instituition. The opposite is through, having met and seen the dedication of the devs working at CCP, and people in other parts of the compagny, i feel they deserve 100 % of me, and i cant give that, even if they dont ask it, i feel i should.

Summit, fanfest, evesterdam, its been crazy. Especially these times, seing CCP make decisions they never deared, and so many more too come, its been a pleasure and a honour too see Seagull lead CCP and throw out release afther release, People dont realise how spoiled they are with CPP, and i wish you could all see what we have seen.

Is it all peace and love, ofc not, sometimes its hard too mix, being a player, allaince leader, passionate idea volcano and IT-er my self with being “just” a CSM. sometimes i like too yell harder, or wish i coudl have a mini summit more often. Cause the love for the job you guys have is there, even if we disagree on content and path towards it. Communication is hard there. the balance of a road map and freedom for teams is one that will settle hopefully. I foudn it hard sometimes when as a CSM you have the feeling you not heard, but then Rise showed he does read it all ;). I want to scream, fix boosts, make reps stackable, look into wh highway and so on :), bu screaming seldom works.

I feel strongly on a phase 3 for null, which doesnt only involve a rebalance of use of supers and keeping pilots happy but also introduce a space with more decisions for players and from that a sense of ownership. Buildable sov is a term often used there. Who knows what lies ahead.

Too the players: this is your EVE, you can bitch about it, moan at CCP or get involved at a level, You can spamm the buddy link through your facebook and inform people this is the game you love. As a corp you can tie people too your social group, and through that also tie people too this game. Eve is a small community, it dies with you or lives and grows with you. If you recruit 1 person or keep him entertained, then EVE can double.

Too leaders of all levels, you have a responsibility, your members give you great power and wealth, social status and alot of entertainment, make EVE grow, dont kill other allainces off, remember, you need enemies, tie your people too EVE, inside and outside EVE.

For myself, not tired of EVE, the opposite is true. I am getting a huge providence crowd too show at Evesterdam, looking forward too breaking the 70 of last year. I am very curious what fozzie sov will bring. I am still loving fc-ing as best job ever, aiming 20k kills this year. I love building up my allaince, 1800 and counting, and know i will regret not being in the CSM as it is exciting, but i also know myself and how i tick from the inside, and the feeling will keep creeping up, and i rather make way for someone else and still love EVE and work for it, as my facebook toon “corebloodbrothers”and other stuff i used will still be active for EVE Online.

For Falcon and Leeloo,
finally but not least, thank you for the time you invested, you opnened your house for us last year, and always had the time for a quick hi or chat, even though you live a online social live that doesnt stop aftehr work. big slow clap for you both.

Though announcement of a replacement will take place tomorrow, it is safe to assume that the following candidate; Lorelei Ierendi, who represents the interests of High Security space, will take corebloodbrothers’ position on the council. How will this effect the CSM is yet to be seen, though it was informed by CCP Games of this development.

*Editor’s Note: This was the letter handed to CCP Games, it was not altered or changed in any way shape or form.

    What I got….someone needs spell check.

    • Diplomat

      English isn’t his native language genius. I know it’s likely shocking to a shrub like you but there are people in the world who don’t speak ‘Merican’ as a first language. Core is Dutch and has been mostly teaching himself English over the years. I’d like to see you go learn Dutch as a second language and see how your spelling is.

      That aside I’m glad Core decided to make this move. I know lots of people are gonna be screaming ‘Mah Conspiracy theory’s’ but Core had been doing a fantastic job balancing his Family, his Job, his time with Eve and his responsibilities as a CSM members. Its all to easy however for people to go from handling things to burnout. He looked at his responsibilities and decided that CSM was what had to go.

      I can respect that, what else was he going to do? Ignore his family and his job? Of course not. That left his Alliance or his time with CSM with what he had to drop and seeing how much time he has put into Providence its a clear choice to pick his Alliance over CSM.

      • Vaximillian

        Just a thought but the guy who mentioned a spellcheck was flamed with the response “I know it’s likely shocking to a shrub like you but there are people in the world who don’t speak ‘Merican’ as a first language.” (1) Is calling someone a SHRUB a thing now? (2) American is not a fucking language. It’s called English. That’s like people saying that complaining about illegal Mexicans is racist. Mexican isn’t a fucking race. Please leave the idiocy in the real world with the people who cry “racist” every time someone takes a dump. On another note. Too much to do within his alliance? The password is … DELEGATION.

          +1

        • Diplomat

          I can’t tell if your being ironic or just stupid. No shit ‘America isn’t a language, you can tell by how I used English in the fucking sentence before that. This is likely beyond your comprehension but I was using to show how arrogant it is for most Americans to expect that everyone in the world have flawless spelling when Core was able to get his point across quite well.

          As for your so called Delegation, you obviously have never had to FC fleets or help run an alliance before otherwise you would realize how much of a demand it is. The hell do you expect him to delegate? Give his login information to someone else to FC his fleets? He already shares leadership of his Corp.

          The password is… PRIORITIES you Shrub.

      • Frans Bovens

        Thank u, wanst easy but feels ok

      • Sylphinja the Dark Rose

        “English isn’t his native language genius.”

        English isn’t my native language nor is English the native language of 90% of European TZ players, yet 99% of those don’t take that excuse to the bank every time someone corrects their grammar.

        Dumb.

    “For the haters and conspirators, CCP did not
    force this or ask this, i am not leaving disapointed in the CSM as a process
    and a instituition.”

    Right… For something intended for a single person (CCP_Leeloo) it sure seems to be crafted as though it was intended to be seen by a wider audience…

    This is like a James315 manifesto taking 1,000 words to say “I’m not The Mittani, although he is a God, and has a nice tight vagina, and is the most wonderful member of NAMBLA, but nay, he is not I, although his leadership is Godly.. I am not The Mittani…….”

    Ya, this was forced, and yes, James315 IS Mittens.

    For
    the haters and conspirators, CCP did not force this or ask this, i am
    not leaving disapointed in the CSM as a process and a instituition. –

    • Actual Truth

      Maybe he didn’t want to write more then one mail?
      https://eveskunk.com/e/351687220

      • Frans Bovens

        correct, and inform ccp of what i was goign to publish about it, and they agreed on the text, 100 % transparency

        • Diplomat

          Just remember Core, Just because your no longer in CSM doesn’t mean you don’t have a voice on Eve. Fly safe man o7

          • Frans Bovens

            Correct mate, and ghta will be heard still

  • Countdracula

    One more dedicated player letting go.
    How many do to have left CCP?

    • NoirWolf

      Real life you dunst.

      Also: Iarna pe sulita <3.

    • Frans Bovens

      i am not letting go mate, eve is my passion, just csm )

      • Jack Morrison

        Thanks for your contrinution! Both here and ingame.

  • Mangraa

    *sigh* Not EVERYTHING in Eve has layers of deception or ulterior motives behind it, you know. If someone is in an elected position and is unable to perform the duties of that position due to whatever reason(s) (such as, you know, real life, having a full time job, a family with an active schedule, or all of the above plus more), the responsible thing to do, despite how difficult it may be, is to resign from that position.

    Better that than take up space, be ineffective due to external circumstances, and over time, be seen as an irresponsible loafer.

    So perhaps, just perhaps, Core’s schedule and real-life responsibilities have cut into his efficacy as a CSM member and there is no backroom conspiratorial orchestration at work.

    As a Provi resident, sure it’s unfortunate to see him resign, but I approve of his decision, as it is the responsible thing to do.

  • Guess

    one thing CCP should do with the CSM is anything under NDA after it’s been implimented/changed, how about altering the previous released CSM minuites with the redacted/NDA subjects included so that people can see all the changes that were planned etc and follow more closely the development etc processes which were at the time under NDAs?

  • Candyman

    … and the Hi Sec rep will step up… and promptly be ignored like the fugly step-sister who couldn’t get a date but got dragged to the Prom anyway, because there is no love for Hi Sec

  • Volt4ever

    Next step take over provi!

    • Sylphinja the Dark Rose

      Hah, good joke.

      Notice how he says there’s 1800 members in Volition Cult and last NCdot fleet counter was roughly a 100 people. Good luck getting CTA attendance from those 1800 people 😉

  • Deifirtep

    One can read this as: “The CSM seems like a great thing, but it is not more important than guiding my alliance.”

    People should not commit to such an “amazing position and oppertunity [sic]” unless they are willing to actually commit to it. People should not run for the CSM if they cannot truly commit to the role (read: be willing to hand their current responsibilities over to others if they take on the CSM role).

    • trollsroyce

      Nope. It’s a game, CSM included. If the CSM part of the game is not fun just play the more interesting part of it.

      • Deifirtep

        That made… no sense whatsoever. :p

        • fools

          Yeah, it did. Not his fault you’re too dumb to understand it.

      • Naughty Dred

        Definitely makes sense mate, and is a good point. People loose sight of the fact that eve is in reality just a game and should be enjoyable (on some level at least) if it’s not fun anymore why bother continuing?

  • Nickett

    Thanks for your contribution so far, balancing RL and EVE Online can be a real challenge, even as a casual eve player like myself – let alone a player in alliance leadership and CSM 🙂
    See you in space!

    • Frans Bovens

      Thnx mate

  • Kaos Maximo

    MIGUI 4 CSM!!!!

  • Nuno Santos

    Migui for CSM indeed!!!!!

  • hmm

    by his spelling he’s still in puberty therefore no loss

    • Alison King

      tard , not everyone in the game has english as there first language.

      • TOPKEK

        Yes you’re right, using spell check is clearly only a skill available to the master races that speak English.

        • Diplomat

          Okay then I want to see you go write a letter in dutch to someone. See how much spell check helps you.

  • Uh oh

    He must have seen the subscription numbers…

  • Potty

    Seriously Core, if you want some attention why don’t you join a gay dance troupe or something? The CSM seems kind-of dull to me.

    • BraveLubie

      Sounds like you have personal experience. Can you suggest a good one?

      • Potty

        I hear the one your mum’s in is good.

        • BraveLubie

          Oh snap. you sure got me now squirt. 1987 called they want their insults back.

          Seriously though, Pod yourself you’ll do eve a favor.

  • Slightly interested

    This was the longest ramble ever. You knew what the CSM position involved. It’s not like you haven’t done it already. You honestly should have just not ran in the first place if you were going to fail cascade.

  • Juvenius Drakonius

    Is it really that hard of a jod CSM? (for real)? I read the mail and It seems like a lot of work
