I'd like to see the items you can get for your Pirate LP given a bit of a polish.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure you can get blueprints for Caldari Navy BCS from the Caldari LP store but the only way to get the Guristas equivalent is to kill faction Guristas which is the opposite of what I'd like to do.

I'm not suggesting we go and put officer mods up for purchase in the store (although you should do that) but currently the LP stores feel like a carbon copy of any generic empire corp with pirate BPC's and pirate implants added. Remove the non-pirate implants, and other generic stuff and add some more 'piratey' things.

I'm enjoying my pirate related standings grind at the moment and I'd love to be able to lose more pirate themed gimmick ships without paying an incredible amount of money to do so. (I'm happy with paying a lot of LP to do so because my time is free YARRRR!!)

TL:DR - Add pirate faction item BPC's to the store, and remove all the generic empire items which you can get from any empire store. If I want a +3 mining implant I'll import one.

Yarr...

Currently its really only profitable to get pirate implants or ships from the pirate LP stores.

More variety in terms of modules would definitely be welcomed.

Supported.

I was a good little missioning pilot once upon a time. Now I have a noticeable chunk of LP with Thukkers with nothing but random, fairly boring, implants to burn it on. I ran drugs and killed empire navy ships and they are offering mining implants? Really?

At some point, there had been talk about improving the LP stores for the pirate factions, so I didn't use it. Even after the "fix" that happened (a year ago?), the stores are still very bland when compared to empire stores. I agree with the OP, the pirate stores need love.

Although I'm no pirate mission runner, I would agree with this one - There should be some kind of benefit from choosing to side with pirarrtes. (besides the e-peen of renamed implants)

Yeah, I suppose this makes sense. The pirate ship and pirate implant offers are fine, but there should also probably be offers for things like pirate gear and pirate POS towers/modules. They don't have to be great offers(though it is LP that can only be acquired in 0.0, so it shouldn't be too awful either), but they should exist. Also, be sure to make the items that take the place of tags be thematically appropriate - drugs, people, stuff from rival factions, all that.

A lot of missions that you run give you navy tags and concord tags, but a bit of variety would be good. Rival commander tags would be great, boosters, anything pirate themed.

While I'd like to see any generic faction gear (POS modules, regular ship modules, etc) available, I'd also like to see other 'pirate' stuff available. Maybe pirate trade goods that you could smuggle into empire and sell.

Supporting this, and the option to buy a plank module for high slots.

Sounds like a good idea.

Yes indeed. Would be nice if CCP were to take a look at pirate faction implants as well - Slaves, Snakes, and Crystals are valuable and fetch a good price, Halos are pretty poor, and Talismans are flat out terrible.

Sure. I would also enjoy:

* More items available only in the pirate LP stores, which may or may not require removing a few items from the empire LP stores.
* Pirate agents available in low-sec space. Low-sec is supposed to be a hive of scum and villany, no?

I support this. And also this:

Makes so much sense.

give a reason for people to do missions outside of high-sec? yes
more interesting stuff for those that do dare to take the risk? yes
makes sence? yes
improves roleplay? yes
supported? yes

Not just the rewards, but the LP store UI also needs some serious improvement. How about a search function? I need a 3% powergrid implant so instead of scrolling through the enormous list or making a filter option I should be able to just type 'PG4' in a search box.

Anyway, supported.

I like the idea, I'd like to see how it would affect the overall faction market though.

My mission running is Caldari, so I don't benefit from it, and I still endorse it. Common sense really.

Give the Syndicate faction more drug bp's =)
After all it's space is supposed to be a pirate haven, and it's market flooded by contraband goods and illegal wares.

Yep.

Simply as it's consistent. have pirate faction items added by the same ratio as with the "non-pirate" factions LP stores (hrhr, it's always a matter of perspective)!

Then bring it up to a CSM Meeting!

So you want parrots, eye-patches, peg-legs and the like? Very Happy

I agree with the idea but fail to see what sort of items might be added that wont make them look like empire LP store copies (faction resists, damage mods etc.).

What items do you have in mind?
