Just did my first level 4 storyline mission and I was dissapointed that it gave less standing than a level 3 storyline mission. I got the mission "Materials for war preparation": Deliver 8000 Kernite to the agent and hand it in. The mission gave 0.7% standing to Caldari. I did the same mission twice as a level 3 storyline mission except that I had to deliver Omber instead of Kernite and I got 1,5% standing increase for each of the level 3 missions.

The level 4 storyline mission was in a 1.0 system and the level 3 missions in a 0.6 system, could that be the reason?

The level 3 materials for war prep gives more standings that the level 4 materials for war prep? Now... that's just weird in so many ways...

Probably needs to go to the 1000 cuts project... can someone confirm this?

Yes.

The quality difference is roughly 10 per 0.1 sec, so level 3 q20 vs lvl 4 q-20

It helps to choose your agent for regular mission #16 carefully, so that you always get the storyline agent you want.

Hmm... are you sure Tau? I am pretty certain that the standings increase do not scale with system security as lowsec missions give the same standings as highsec ones (something that has been verified a number of times)... not 100% sure about storylines but I recall that was the case as well.

Could it be your current standing. That ks higher then when you did lvl3 missions
The higher your standing more slower your standing goes up

Atlest you had a nice +4 implant as a reward aswell

Its because everyone buys the kernite instation and insta hands in, which kills the completion time average, and thus the payout. Level 3 runners seem to have not blown the averages as badly. Its still a highly profitable mission because of the implant, and there would be runners who are happy its not paying out much standing. I don't think anything is "broken".

The l4 combat storylines pay out plenty of standings, and last time I did the epic arc, I got a combat story line partway through (because the epic arc is 18 l4 missions or so it will trigger a storyline), and then the epic arc payout at the end, which is nearly as good as 2 l4 combat storylines.

Guilty as charged - yes buy kernite/hand in kernite is just soo.... convinient.

But I guess that if they changed it to one of the mission-only ores (or for lvl 4 missions, ice or gas!) people would hate the mission even more.

Makes sense though - thanks for the insight Tauranon
