I started doing Caldari COSMOS missions on my alt who mostly does PvP because they give nice rewards and standings boost, but they have two problems that haven’t been fixed in years and I would like to address them. Don’t know should I have posted this in Player Suggestions and Ideas, though.
Some agents require you to bring items (usually found in data sites) that are worth much more than the reward and give no standings increase and aren’t part of a chain. I don’t see why anyone with half a brain would bother with such missions.
You need to have a high enough standing with corporation the agent belongs to for him to offer you a mission, not the faction. This prevented my alt from running missions for agents belonging to Caldari Provisions and Science and Trade Instititute, since they are player-joinable corps and I shot players belonging to them, which destroyed my standings. I believe this should be fixed as it discourages PvP.
Agreed on that. You should get kicked out of that NPC corp into a randomly created 1 man player corp if your standing falls below a certain level, which you cannot leave until you train Corporate Management level 1. And you should not be able to rejoin such an NPC corp until your standings with that corp have sufficiently improved.
Until such an improvement to the consequences system arrives, you are left with being the unloved yet tolerated basement dweller that is tasked with copying stamps.
