…And Make Gorilla Cookies

Rixx comes out “In Praise of Ugly”:

The Mammoth IS ugly, it was beaten quite hard with the ugly stick. It hit every branch in the ugly tree when it fell out of production. It is soooo ugly it would make a freight train take a dirt road!
This is the entire point of both the Mammoth and the Hoarder, they exist to be ugly. If indeed, they are on the block for revision, then they need to be V3’d to be even more ugly in high-resolution. You have streamlined and purty-fied far to many Minmatar ships, the Industrials need to stay horribly ugly. That is their character, the entire summation of hurried, clunky, use what is at hand MInmatar design philosophy.
I am encouraged by your obvious attention to detail, it has only taken you ten years to realize the obvious – the Mammoth is freakishly butt ugly. Not every ship in Eve needs to be streamlined perfection, we need and demand our ugly be respected, admired and enhanced. It adds character to homogenization.
Keep the Mammoth ugly. In fact, it could stand to be even worse in my opinion.

CSM8 Town Hall 16 June
Duncan Ringill

Speak now or forever grit your teeth:

The 8th Council of Stellar Management (CSM8) will be holding its first Town Hall on June 16 at 1900 EVE time. This is an excellent opportunity to speak with your elected representatives to CCP on matters that you feel are important in New Eden. CSM8 is working in cooperation with EVE University and EVE Radio to provide an interactive session where you can listen, ask questions, learn about what the latest CSM is up to.

The focus of this particular Town Hall will be player reactions to the Odyssey expansion, suggestions for topics for us to take to the first CSM/CCP Summit, any final questions about the CSM8 election cycle, and of course, general questions from EVE players on any topic they desire.
