The September newsletter for EVE Online is
hot off the virtual presses. As always it features the latest in
upcoming changes to the game, mostly centering around the eagerly
anticipated Dominion expansion, as well as current ingame issues and
hot topics. Information regarding the upcoming fourth version of the
CSM is the main feature of the month. The CSM or "Council of Stellar
Managemnt" is a player based and player elected group that meet and
discuss in game issues directly with CCP.
Here is an excerpt from the newsletter:
The CSM - How YOU can affect progress and change in EVE Online
Dominion, the expansion headed your way in November, brings changes and new features to sovereignty and how players control the game universe around them. Several of these changes are the result of input from and research pushed forward by the Council of Stellar Management. CCP Xhagen in his latest blog states that "roughly 60% of all issues brought up by the CSM" have moved into development in one form or another. No other MMO community can claim such an impact on how their virtual universe evolves.
