CCP Dolan, who is responsible for EVEs CSM, recently announced that a new beta version of a player War Council will be formed from a selected pool of some of the games most helpful players. Those players will help create and put a voting system in place. While this is a beta version and work in progress, some growing pains are to be expected.
Additional details about the War Council will be revealed at a later date regarding possible summits, council size, term limits, and more. The War Council will work with CSM to help further improve the whole of the EVE universe.
