In CSM14, I plan to use my experience of the Alliance Tournament, wormholes, and null-sec to create a healthier environment focused on PvP.
The Alliance Tournament was an amazing bastion of content for PvPers. In CSM14 I plan to not only push to bring the AT back, but to help sponsor smaller, year-round tournaments. Tournament PvP, is something everyone in EVE deserves to have a chance at, not only those who can field full AT teams with funding.
Wormholes, while in a healthy place, can always use focus and attention from CCP. I plan to advocate for alliance bookmarks and more ways to push more groups into wormhole space.
Finally, null-sec. One of the largest issues plaguing EVE in 2019 is citadel spam. Right now there is nothing stopping larger alliances and coalitions from dropping a Keepstar in every system. In some larger coalitions, nearly every constellation has a Keepstar. To an extent, they are unevictable and only furthers the capital meta we find ourselves in.
Who is Anveri Vestigo?
I am an American college student studying Mandarin and International Relations in Zhejiang University, in Hangzhou, China. Since 2013, I’ve been able to experience almost everything that EVE has to offer: from super warfare, to small gang, to dread bombs, to the alliance tournament, to wormholes. I hope to be able to use my varied experiences to represent the underrepresented in the CSM.
In Asteria Concord, a part of Phoenix Federation, I was a Strategic FC running everything from Dreads to Machariels to Caracals. Moving from FCing larger fleets, I had the opportunity to run Triumvirate’s Alliance Tournament team in ATXVI. Coaching a brand new team, we were able to earn our third place position through hard work and determination. If you’re interested in reading more about it, you can read my AAR detailing our climb from the bottom to the top. Later I moved into low-class wormhole space with Odin’s Call. Here I’ve been learning the ins and outs of wormhole space, and I hope to be able to represent my close friends in the CSM.
What do I stand for?
I plan to focus on five main ideas throughout my CSM14 career:
- Tournaments and Community Interaction
- Low-Class Wormholes
- and NPC Nullsec
Tournaments and Community Interaction
With the AT cancelled, EVE loses an important bastion of PVP content. Tournament play is something that is incredibly unique and nearly impossible to replicate. Working with CCP I hope to increase the number of community events and community run tournaments.
Due to my experience with the Chinese community, I hope to be able to open a conduit of communication between them and the CSM as a whole. It is important to remember many Chinese players want to play the game just like we do. Like any group, it is only a few individuals who ruin it for the rest. With my many friends and contacts in FRT and CURE (and I hope to soon add Mango to that list) I will be able to keep China represented in CSM14.
Nullsec, while in a decent place, could use a lot of attention to foster a healthier environment for PvP. Currently nullsec is extremely static: even TEST was forced to call off an offensive on FRT due to burnout. There are a lot of issues that need to be addressed, such as:
- The power of Ansiblex gates
- Citadel power projection
- Capital proliferation
- Buffs and Nerfs to numerous ships
Currently citadels are extremely strong for their low price tag and spammability. They require nerfs to bring them in line with their POS predecessors. There are numerous ways to address this issue, from implementing a cap on the number that can be dropped in an area, to actually making low-power structures easy to grind. In my full document, I bring up several ways that we can address this issue–which I feel is one of the most important to discuss.
While I am extremely familiar with low-class wormholes, I don’t have incredible experience with high-class wormholes. That’s why I plan to be extremely active through the Praisebob discord, as well as on my own, in order to address the issues currently facing the greater wormhole community: especially by looking at C4s and C3s.
NPC Nullsec is not in as healthy of a place as it could be. In order to breathe new life into these dead regions, there are at least three changes I plan on proposing to CCP:
Lower the entry barrier for L5s
Add new and increase the amount of Combat Anomalies in the region
Add a new form of “Plexes”

How can I contact you?
There are several ways to contact me.
The best (and preferred!) way to contact me, would be through my Discord: https://discord.gg/8Nc6ZNt
Here you can talk about any questions, comments, or concerns you might have about me, my campaign, or EVE as a whole.
If Discord isn’t your jam, you can always mail me in-game or comment on this post. I hope to be able to answer every question here and on the forums.
I’m running for CSM14 and plan to focus a lot on small-gang PvP as well as creating a healthier null-sec environment. Read more here!
