Don't know about the rest of you, but I gaze in frustration at the LP I have earned and know that I will never mission for that NPC corp again, but the 900 or so LP would be real handy if added to my current pot.

My suggestion is to "factionise" LP - make it race not NPC corp specific. (that should help the DB).

You could go the whole hog and just put it all in a LP pot to be used with any faction. Might annoy the Role Play community tho.

AND it is such a small thing... BFF!!!

There are currently 3 LP stores for each faction.
1 Military
1 Science
1 Faction Military

If your suggestion was implemented but divided into those 3 pools it wouldnt change where people run missions. It would just eliminate most of those tiny LP pools we have lying around. (might be some instances, where you could combine the LP from 2 different corps with agents near eachother)

If the first 2 pools were combined it could have a larger impact on the game as we would get a larger pool of agents to pick from for getting our LP. Cant decide if that is a good thing or not.

But if all 3 were combined, it would be a problem as, as I understand it, FW missions give more LP and their stores have cheaper gear aswell as ships unique to the FW stores.

And as for trading LP between factions.. They are called Loyalty points for a reason.. OK so we ca do away with corp loyalty.... But taking away faction loyalty would take away a lot of flavour imo. Though perhaps the LP could be transfered to an allied faction at an exchange rate... but Im thinking there are many pitfalls there and not much benefit.

But your first idea wasnt so bad.. Provided the 3 pools are seperate.

No thanks.
Some corps are better to mission for because their LP is worth more, the reason that LP is worth more is because they have fewer agents.
This would only introduce more homogeny in agent missioning, and further encourage players to mission in the mission hubs for ease of refusal.

while I would really like to grind my normal agents, save up for talons and SNI's then join FW for a day to get them...I know this is wrong.

Your idea would make day long stints to get FW lp items possible. Would devalue those markets and take away a reward from FW .

Proposal: LP market. Buy and sell your lp on the open market.

but only with PLEX. Two birds one stone.

1. you make it less profitable for botters if plex is LP only
2. LP can be bought with real money so there is no roof
3. CCP makes a ****load of cash.

Win win!

This was actually my first suggestion when I started playing.... corps should provide little perks you can purchase with the lp working for them (or on standing) and the remaining lp should be faction specific.
