The new patch affected the ability to see other players standing with npc factions/corps (Even when you are in the same crop and alliance). Now you can only see players standing with other player alliances and crops (PC standing). This really sucks for mission runners and people who care about npc standing. It also make recuiting players with the right standing impossible (ie: for setting up POS).

It is one thing to reduced the number of types of agents but you shouldn't remove the ability to see players standing with npc crops.

Also because of the patch, you can't see the likes and dislikes (their views) of npc factions on each other (ie. Caldari dislike Gallente and Minmartar and likes Mordu's, ect...)

These funtions should be put back into the game.

This patch is the worst thing ever. What is the real intension of this? How am I be able to know, that the Gallente hates the Caldari State with -5,00?? New Players do not know, why their standings go down so much, EVEN when they decline a faction mission. I demand to insert the option if I want to show my OWN standings to others or not. Erase the certificate Crap and not such elementary thinks like the standing system. -.-
And give a answer WHY CCP has make this ****. No statement.. NO information about the changes and why they are so necessary.

Forget about your Friend Invite crap with Plex and 30 free day. If you kick old players so hard you will lose more than you can win with the new WoW Kids, which you want to have in EVE.


GIVE THE STANDINGS BACK!

I too think that blocking ALL standing views is a little harsh. Is it to stop server load?.

I would like to see one of two things added...
1) as the OP mentions POS then we can see corps have a valid need for this, corp applicatinons SHOULD open up the standings page for the Corp to view before acceptance. Perhaps this is in place, but I think not, please correct me if it is!

2) Allow users to see all Faction and Corp standings, but perhaps instead of updating them on the fly, you could update them once a week or even replace the values with a status bar (Red = Neg, Dark red = zomgNeg, LightGreen = Pos, DarkGreen = yayzorPos)

nothing is impossible.. you just have to do more preassessment in your vetting of the player.. however, I have no problem with your suggestion to add the ability to look it up.

I don't think looking at others faction/corporation standings lag the game. Looking at the star map or alliance ranking is way worst. Make no sense to me why the developers did what they did.

Now its like accepting a new person to your job. You may not know it, but he secretly wants to blow up your offices ...

Lifes rough huh ...

Yeah, I'm with Guan Yuan on this one. This makes it difficult to recruit people because they could potentially screw up your corp standings, causing problems when it comes to anchoring POS in High Sec but also affecting the RP aspect of the game.

And contrary to Tyme Xandr's comments it's not really like employing a new person to a job because you can't just get Thukker Mix or Ammatar on the phone to check out the person's work history.

PLEASE, stop removing functionality and features when adding and enhancing eve. It seems with every patch that fixes one thing, two more bugs or grudges are created.

I am a major bug hunter and I have found more bugs in the last three months than in the few years I've played eve.

It did lag the game. This change is perfect. Now I can see if someone is actually neutral before I shoot them, as opposed to a blue with an overview bug, and I can do it without a huge lag spike.
