So I tested how bad it is to gain Triglavian (and Edencom) standing in Pochven by shooting Drifters. I had never tried to grind NPC standings before so I wonder if these things are normal, particular to just Drifter/Trig/Edencom standings, or maybe just a bug:
-got my first tick 10 minutes after shooting the first rat
-second tick took longer, about 13 minutes, although I shot rats continuously
-third tick even longer, 17 minutes. Then 21 minutes
-the amount of standing awarded fluctuated for no discernible reason. Once I literally shot the exact same kind of rat (Hypnosian Upholder) in two different ticks, but the first tick gave 50% more standing than the second
Shouldn’t a tick always be exactly 10 minutes? If you continuously kill rats in other space, do you get a tick exactly every 10 minutes for a given system?
And why would two ticks where the same rat was killed award different standing? Obviously you receive less standing the more you already have, but this has no practical effect yet when you are at 0.0, as I was.
If the longer ticks are intended, I guess it is so to force us to roam from system to system… except that that isn’t possible without standing. Hopefully just a bug?
Also, after receiving the third tick with a 21 minute delay, I shot a couple more rats, but never got standing for them. What gives?
