I think the mission bonus rewards already in place are a great idea, however the time constraints are so loose you always get the bonus. There is no real sence of timepressure. Nothing to strive for.

What i propose is to make several time limits and corresponding higher reward for excellence.

I really hope you like my idea, i think i would be a lot of fun and add something to missions. It should also be very easy for ccp to implement.

Very short time limits might cause people to do missions in group to get the highest bonus...
At least for L4 missions.

For lower level missions, it can't work if the place isn't deadspace and the gates aren't filtering ship sizes and tech levels properly.

There's maybe some improvement there if it makes people work more in groups than run missions solo.

well if they do them in groups, good for them, its a social game. Btw, there would also be more players to split the reward.

Your consern about lower lvl missions is misplaced. It never pays to do lower lvl missions, no matter the reward. The salvage, loot and bounty is just too poor.

It never pays for high lvl chars to do low lvl missions.

How does that translate into me not caring about noobs?

As long as the maximum bonus you can get is the same as the current bonus. Missions, especially lvl4s DO NOT need another isk buff. Period. Otherwise, a nice idea.

It pays properly for younger players, it pays properly against the lower value of the ships used.

Making a super bonus reward that all old players (alone) will get on lower level missions is wrong.

Just don't say lower level missions never pay, when you fly a frigate, getting 100k on a mission seems very cool (because you can buy half your ship hull).
So, all levels should benefit of this kind of system and it should be hard enough not to give it away easyly.


The maximum attainable bonus could be higher if and only if it's only attainable with several people.
Missionning in group isn't profitable as solo, it could be a good boost to missions fitting better in the multiplayer idea of the game.
Need to be properly balanced, but as some stuff in missions already depends on some stats done on each mission by the system, it could auto balance (if too many people complete the mission solo and get the super bonus).

my dear elana,

You are obviously new to the game. 100.000 isk will not bring any lvl 4 players to your lvl 1-3 missions. even 1 million will not make it worth the time for a lvl 4 player.

(btw, who said anything about a super reward ?)

A mechanic that encourages grouping without penalizing those that don't want to? Fantastic!

crimson - no one forcing you to play lvl 1-3 misions, so on what you are complaining ?

And it is awesome idea to have sort of bigger bonus (compared to current ones), which will be paid only if done mission in much shorter time.

Doing lvl4 missions in big fleets isnt much profiting (especialy if you have 1-2 rokies in fleet - so tghat they can earn nice money compared to normal profits for them, and get better prepared for bigger lvl missions).

I think if bonus willl be say 2x bigger than normal, but payed only if done in e.q 1/3 of time - it will be good. (and avaivable to all lvl agents).
