Mission runners have paid a dear price for being loyal customers. Buying gear, creating gear, selling gear, and using mission agents for years. A few years ago T2 salvage items dropped on a regular basis while salvaging level 4 missions. Then for some reason this was taken away and given exclusively to pilots who lived in low security who could salvage T2 ships with the protection of their corps giving them and their corps the exclusive access to these items thus total control over the T2 rigs market. This was a mistake. Level 4 missions are dangerous. They require years of dedication to the game in training and practice. To take away a prime part of the loot scheme was just wrong. We, the mission runners of Eve, the backbone of you PVP players who without us, would have to resort to mission running to make money, want the T2 salvage back in level 4 missions. And don't even think of moving level 4 agents to low sec in exchange. Thank you for your consideration.

I agree with this as well. Maybe as a comprimise make the faction stuff only drop in low sec, but give level 4 missions every where the chance to get T2 items. Doesnt have to be an outrageus ammount, maybe 1 out of every 400 wrecks has some, or something better you come up with. But this would stimulate people to get back to missions and less afk minning when they dont live in low sec alliances.

Excuse me, but that's simply plain wrong.
Proof can easily be found in the noobcorps,
where ppl skill ASAP to b/s to farm lvl4s safely.
That doesn't take years. Lvl4s are way too easy.

Maybe you can please explain what you mean exactly,
because your wording makes it look simply wrong.

That's simply plain wrong too, at least in this wording.
Of course, mission runners are a part of the income of PvPers,
but saying that they NEED you is wrong.
See Industrialists. See other PvPers who get popped.
See those who MarketPvP and ShipPvP. etc.

Ohh yeah don't underestimate those lv4's despite the predicable behavior of the NPC's. Predicatable reactions and EWAR as well as being able to know the exact number of the enimies and location of them before you enter, they are quite dangerous. Did you know they fire missiles and bullets are you? Those thing's freaking hurt. I have to turn on a shield booster sometimes. Ok mabey not I fly a nighthawk, but if I had a shield booster I might be tempted to turn it on to see my shield go back upt 100% from 98%. As it really hurts my feelings when someone shoots me Crying or Very sad

On a serious note if you consider a lv4 mission dangerous and you have been doing this for "years" you really should just quit eve now. Your doing something seriously wrong. And may I suggest hello kitty online it may be up your alley. I just hope it's not too much for you. Rolling Eyes
And for the record this is comming from a mission runner.

I invade lvl4s i scan down and run them in a cane...
... no wait, i RAN them in a cane because i'm banned from highsec now ...
... and i did it faster than most others in b/s ...

... and *lol* got even kudos for doing it, instead of ****ing the runners off. xD

Terrible idea. There are already many L4 mission farmers that are way too rich, and crash mineral and module prices anyways. T2 salvage would un-balance the market, and crash the price of T2 rigs.

A major part of my isk comes from highsec mission running but even I disagree with the proposal. Lowsec is risk vs isk, it should stay that way.

No.

Missions are predictable and if you're losing your ship you are either overconfident or doing it wrong. With a couple of fairly skilled toons (plus an optional salvage toon) level 4's are easy to tank and hard to fail. CCP was right to restrict T2 salvage to T2 ship wrecks and low/nullsec sites.

Obviously you haven't noticed faction rats still spawn in hisec both in belts (rare) and in anomalies and exploration sites, not to mention mag sites still yield T2 salvage in hisec, the odds are about what you're asking for here.

That's right, back away from the raven and your textbook mission running and get into something with some competition.
