EVE Online's Council of Stellar Management: CCP Games Shakes Things Up


EVE Online, the popular space-based MMORPG, is known for its player-driven universe and complex political systems. One of its unique features is the Council of Stellar Management (CSM), a player-elected council that represents the game's community. This year, CCP Games, the developer of EVE Online, is shaking things up by restructuring the CSM and appointing two of its members.

The Road to CSM 18

The process of forming the 18th Council of Stellar Management is about to begin. Candidate submissions will open between August 1st and 15th, with applications processed between August 2nd and 18th. The candidates will then be announced on August 23rd, marking the start of the campaigning period that runs until September 3rd. Voting for candidates will take place from September 4th through the 11th, with the members of CSM 18 announced live at Fanfest on September 21st.

A New Structure for the CSM

The most significant change this year is the expansion of the CSM from 10 to 12 members. The first 10 members will be elected as usual, but two additional members will be appointed by CCP Games from the candidates who finished in the 11th to 20th positions.

CCP Games has stated that these two extra members will be selected based on the studio's extended development plans for EVE Online. Importantly, there will be no distinction made between the 10 elected and two appointed members of the CSM, ensuring that all members have an equal voice.


The restructuring of the Council of Stellar Management represents a significant change for EVE Online. By appointing two members, CCP Games is taking a more active role in the council's composition, potentially bringing new perspectives and expertise to the table. As the process of forming CSM 18 begins, players and fans alike will be watching closely to see how these changes impact the game's community and development.
