I just got done with a couple of days of doing career missions with another faction - my standings with them were almost -3 and I want to be able to travel through their systems without getting attacked.
So I did it and it wasn’t that bad, I learned how to do the tasks better and easier. However, why did I have to do it at all?
If I now go back doing the L4 security missions I was enjoying before, I will just screw up my standings with them again and this time I won’t have any career missions to do…it took me that many agents to get standings back slightly over 0.0.
My question is:
Why are the missions set up so that you can’t get good standings with all factions? I guess I’m stuck not doing missions any more, although I had several factions at almost 8.0 and was able to do L5 missions with them - not any more, after doing the career missions, I’m almost down to 6 now.
It just seems to be counter-productive and I WAS having fun doing the L4’s.
Anybody have an explanation why this weird situation exists? Is it to force people out of PvE and into PvP? I guess I could do an L4 mission and then travel to another faction territory and do another and continue in a round robin so I’d never have low standings with anybody - but that seems pointless, as standings would always be mediocre with all.
