Was just reading with a laugh about how the Corporation Management skills are so out of date and not needed and it made me scratch my head and wonder…
After a long, years long (half a decade) break I came back, made a new alt to see how the new tutorial works, then proceeded to do the normal toon creation stuff, Social V, L5 Implants, buy up a year of play and stack the queue. Start running missions to get my standings up to 7. Or… Wait a second. WHY?
It used to be (for me at least) that 7.0 standings with a faction were needed to have jump clones, and then the L4 locator agent access came along the way. But now, (RIP Estel Arador Services, you were the FUNNEST corp to Wardec!) CCP “accidentally” (read didn’t want to upset Estel Arador and the likes) opened free jump clones almost anywhere for anyone, free of standings requirements.
So this leaves me wondering. What do you need faction standings for anymore at all? Why even run missions anymore?
Am I missing something? (I HOPE so)
