What good is a reprocessing tax reduction when citadels have the best rates?
Previously, at around 6.67 points, players were able to max out their refining bonus. I propose giving back a bonus to reprocessing that is derived from reputation that, when maxed out at 6.67 reputation, would be equivalent to the highest of citadel refinery rates. POS such as citadel enjoy many other benefits, and do not need to have exclusive rights to max refining at the expense of others.
This would bring back the reward that those players had previously worked towards developing their standings with NPC corps for this purpose, and provide greater incentive to gameplay.
Why should old npc structures be better then tech that upwell introduced like a year ago tops?
Because you dont have a public athanor/raitaru nearby? Anchor it yourself. You afraid it will get destroyed? That’s part of the game. You take risk(your structure might be destroyed) for a reward(better refining yields). If you think the risk is higher then reward then dont do it. Use npc station.
npc standings are not worthless. they give you access to missions, they decrease your npc tax on selling, they increase your refining % in stations owned by corporation.
i hope they dont remove services from stations, having to use a citadel whereby the owner controls you is a pain. place your expensive clone in a citadel and they the clone bay is turned off denying you access. Turning the market off making your inventory useless. NPC station standings should still serve a purpose I think.
The kool-aid around here seems to come with a chemical lobotomy.
Listen up. “Player driven” sandbox, whatever that means, doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to have your own goals that don’t directly involve players. We had an incentive that was taken away for no good reason. It is garbage that there is such a lack of incentive for earning standings and it equates to less people playing your game. Why should I care about playing a game with such paltry rewards in the first place?
And things just keep getting easier for the peasants who will cry about “grind” in a video game. It is no wonder the game has lost so many players. These forms of vendor stand player “interaction” and token property ownership are of the most pathetic degree. It seems there are less reasons to play the game than ever.
I read it and understood it perfectly. You wrote it illogically, using a double negative and thus it made no sense.
I did well in school which is why I understand both how to read and write correctly and my worthless 2c nicely summed up your worthless thread and silly opinions. If you get better rates at a Citadel and that is your only goal, use one. That much would seem obvious. Maybe you should work harder in school?
imagine someone managing to build a trade up out of their citadel, now imagine tax hikes or worse it getting blown up.
Im actually waiting for ccp to make standings even less because this inbetween is a bunch of bs.
removed standings for jc, removed it for station placement so we have that cancer. it only controls a small amount of taxes and where you may travel without being chased down. oh and unlocking the next lvl of mission which is ok
