Hiya Gang,

Relatively new here...been with eve a little over a month. I've been reading the boards a lot, and see folks talking about making sure you don't let your faction drop to an unrecoverable level.

My question is....if I run missions for mimatar for a while, then swap to opposite faction, will I just tank my faction with mimnatar? or is there some net gain with all if I rotate agents? Trying to not screw myself over in the long run.

Thanks in advance.

Don't worry, you have to run a very, very, very large amount of missions for a single faction with no balancing in order to tank your faction standings.

Generally, when you gain faction for a primary faction, you also gain for those associated with it - ie, Minmatar mission faction standings also give you some Gallente standings; your Amarr standings decrease, as does your Caldari standings, but not as much as if you had been running Gallente missions.

It's possible to "even out", but it's time consuming and demands that you have a stomach for missioning.

The Scope

The one thing to be careful about is running missions where you kill ships from one of the 4 factions. They really don't like that, and it will drop your standings pretty quickly.

If you are concerned about keeping up your standing for a faction, decline any mission where you are sent to kill that faction (the mission screen will show their icon). You can decline 1 mission every 4 hours with no penalty. If you get unlucky and get 2 in a row, you will need to wait out the 4 hours, or take a standings hit with your agent.
