Since the patch, R&D Agents have been whining less. Previously, once you'd run one mission, you could be expected to pony up some more Plutonium or decline a request for science graduates between 12 and 22 hours later. Now, I haven't heard from one of my agents for closing in on 48 hours. What the hell? Didn't Oveur recently say CCP was going to do something to ADD to the chances those of us dutifully running our R&D missions? Cutting down on R&D missions cuts down on what small edge we had over the hoard of absentee researchers... Was this intentional, or does someone in programming need to be (slowly) beaten into a stupor with TomB's nerfbat? If it was intentional...I would reply thusly:

I've noticed this as well and it appears to be totally random as to how often an agent gives out missions now. Some of my agents haven't given me a mission for several days now while others still appear to be daily.

Yeah, wtf!? We're boring ourselves to death so we can get this ONE slight edge over the armchair R&D people who spend a day or two to start 5x R&D projects, and you take that away when Oveur JUST SAID in the dev chat that CCP was going to make R&D more involved? Evil or Very Mad

Has anyone else noticed this?

Ive noticed that my R&D agents dont send me a mail until I talk to them. When I do talk to them the only option I get is to move my research, but then I immediatly get a mail from them. If I talk to them again, I then have a mission option. I think the eve mail notification is borkeRolling Eyes

Yes, I noticed that too. And no, talkin with agent doesnt help getting mission from him. I once waited 5 days to get mission from 2 of my agents.

I do - so there's never been an "or else"!

'Course....there's never been anything given to me by him either.....the worthless slug!!! Evil or Very Mad
