So in an expansion that will focus on Low Sec and Wardecs, the people currently involved in those two are… not going to Iceland.
Bloc voting works well when the blocs are relevant. Right now if Hans or Aleks wants their voice heard they have to trust in CCP listening to the members they never have to face, and trust that the nuances of their communication come through, without the benefit of face-to-face meetings.
To me, these results represent success for EvE and failure for CCP and the CSM. Only EvE could build blocs so powerful that they aren’t capable of recognizing their own self-interest. However when CCP and the CSM sit in Iceland the members traveling to Iceland will by and large NOT have any stake, nor much knowledge in what they are talking about. At best they have second or third hand information regarding high sec, or low sec mechanics and their effects on people that actually live there. By having candidates all lumped into one “category” CCP denies itself the expert information they need to make informed decisiosn. And we wonder why Greyscale can come up with such crackhead ideas.
