Hi everyone,

i'm trying to figure out if it's a good idea to work with a single agent that i have high standings with in order to cherry-pick missions. I've read contradictory things about how the pool of missions i can get offered by a particular agent is selected, so i decided to make an own thread about the things that aren't clear to me.
The questions i've got are:

1) I've read in a post that if i've got a very high effective standing towards an agent (let's say close to +10) the agent will be more inclined to offer me missions that i have not rejected previously and tend to not offer me missions i have already declined in the past.
If it worked this way it would be a nice help in reducing standing hits with this agent due to declining missions because his pool would over time become better and better for me resulting in mostly missions that i want to do.

2) Has letting an offered (but not accepted) mission expire the same effect as pushing the "decline" button ? If that's the case and an agent's mission-pool gets altered by declining missions like in question 1) then letting a mission-offer expire would possibly remove that mission from the agen'ts pool and i'd have to be more careful and not get another offer from an agent before i intend tro go somewhere else, because the offer might expire and i might not be able to get this mission again from the agent without me having actively declined it.

3) One last question that isn't related to 1) or 2): I've read that my effective standing towards an agent also modifies the rewards for completing his missions. Does this apply to the ISK-reward, the LP-reward or both ?

Thanks in advance for any clarification.
