On a Mission
Currently, FW missions are the fastest way to make LP in FW. You can gain upwards of 35K+ LP for a mission, with very little work. In fact, it takes longer to go pick up missions than it does to complete them in most cases, and most of the time involved in completing them comes from visiting your agents.
Many have said that missions are too easy. Originally, they were meant to take you to hostile space. With the sovereignty changes and the legacy systems, it is now possible (and for the Minmatar probable) that you will be sent to your militia’s own systems.
Others say that Missions shouldn’t payout so much LP. That missions should be lower on the rung of payouts for FW, with pvp and plexing more toward the top.
But, what will happen if we make missions harder and/or significantly reduce the rewards?
No one will mission.
What would be the point? You can get LP more easily/faster elsewhere. Missioning doesn’t affect sovereignty. And, furthermore, missioning can greatly slaughter your Faction standings preventing you from entering highsec if you were to leave FW later on.
It’s not like they’re that exciting, so they won’t be worth the trouble.
