I used to FW most of my time but now, flying being neutral, I find it quite troublesome to travel in Caldari/Amarr hisec space due to Faction NPC aggression (and these lads are spawning even inside deadspace pocket!).
It means, I cannot stay in one place too long and I cannot use cloak (!).
So, I tried to fix it by doing lvl1 missions for Caldari and found that even after finishing a dozen of them (required to get a storyline which actually affects standing towards certain Faction) I had my standing improved by laughable value!
I don’t remember exactly, but I counted that I may need a month of two of miserable grinding to improve it to ‘safe’ level.
Sure, one should be punished hardly for being war criminal and blablabal… but FW doesn’t give much benefit comparing to what standing loss may do to you.
How about to implement some kind of one-click solution for faction standing improvement - like you did with Security Status? Same could apply here as well.
Faction Tags, bribes, communal works - everything is acceptable - but for a reasonable ammount of time/money.
What do you think?
