I’ve simply seen too many allusions to the boring, repetitive quality of PvE in EVE such that I thought I would add to these comments the reason I don’t play PvE any more - and would like to.
I agree that it doesn’t take long to be bored by the repetitiveness of the missions. But there is another, more important reason for the entire PvE scenarios to be revamped.
It doesn’t matter much which agent, which corp or which faction you are doing missions for - you lose standings - so it’s a win-lose situation in PvE, no matter what you do. It’s like running in place.
Make the PvE mission win-win AND change the entire genre of missions to an interesting Role Play scenario and there would be few complaints. I’m a very young clone in this game and I can do L4 security missions solo - BUT I don’t do missions any more because I lose standings with somebody every time I do missions…fullstop.
