Kazanir hails from the south in a little alliance called Goonswarm Federation. You might not have noticed he was a bloc candidate. After all, he only received double the number of votes needed to win in the first round. His carry-over single-handedly got another Imperium candidate elected!
Kazanir is an economics guy specializing in how the economy impacts the meta and vice versa. Hopefully, CCP hasn’t had enough of our “ECONOMY BAD! ECONOMY BAD!” chants and actually listens to what Kazanir brings to the table. Here’s a big takeaway from his forum thread:
“I hope to bring a unique perspective as a player who experienced the absolute heights of the Dominion-era game and metagame, but returned after missing the majority of the Lifeblood era and most of the changes known as “scarcity”. I’ve had the opportunity to consider all of these changes – essentially every mechanical change to EVE that postdates jump fatigue – as a whole and separately, and hope to bring some useful and credible insight to the table on that basis.”
