I’d like to suggest a change to the current way Faction Standings change on completion of Storyline Missions. I propose changing the negative derived modification towards the opposite factions to be reduced by an additional half (from what it is now). My friends and I enjoy working toward NPC Corporation Standing and Faction Standing however the current gameplay makes it overly-difficult to gain standing with the four main Factions (Amarr, Gallente Federation, Minmatar Republic & Caldari State). Maybe the game was originally meant to be this way - whereas you are “tied” to Amarr\Caldar or Gallente\Minmatar…but times change - I think it might be time to change the amount that is negatively derived from missions of the “opposing” factions.
Also, i’d like to propose that when completing distribution missions you also gain a small amount of standing with the NPC corporation you’ve delivered the goods to (say 50% of what you gain from the NPC corporation you are running the mission for).
Thank you for the consideration!
