Hello,

I was following a thread about repairing faction standings and it has mentioned doing circle agent missions. I just completed one and I did not see an increase to my faction standings at all. According to some research i've done one agent in that circle should give the faction standing increase, but I received none. I wrote down all my standings before hand. Has this been changed recently or is there something i'm missing? I did go through the entire circle of agents back to the original.

Thanks in advance!

I don't remember circle agents ever giving faction standing.

I just tried this as well. Please keep in mind that circle agents are lvl 1 courier storyline type gains. 0.01 gain would be an example of what you could expect. If that rounds down....then you see nothing.

Hello, I'm the author of the Faction Standing Repair Plan which is probably the thread you're referring to.

Only one of the Agents in the circle will give a small Faction standing increase the first time for completing them. After that there is no other Faction standing increase.

If this is your first time ever working with the Circle Agents and you didn't receive a Faction standing increase, then file a petition in game. If a regular GM doesn't honor the request for the Faction standing increase that's due, politely request that your petition be forwarded or escalated to a Senior GM. If no Faction standing increase is granted, please ask for an Official Ruling or statement explaining the reason why.

EDIT:
Depending on the level of your Social and Negotiation skills, you could receive 0.241% Faction standing increase to 0.5005% Faction standing increase, maybe more, maybe less.

There's been a lot of stealth nerfs done to this game by CCP over the years. Not to mention that lately, getting the Faction standing increases credited to the character's account that's due for completing some of the Event Agent missions (like Epic Arcs) has been very buggy, to say the least.

Best to file the petition asap.

From what I recall you should get a storyline mission from one of the agents in the circle after doing 16 regular missions with them, like with other regular agents.

At least, that is how it worked for one of my alts about 18 months ago.

Yeah, that depends if you've done other missions for the same level of Agents in that Faction. If not, you won't get an extra storyline offer, however, one of the Agents in the circle is supposed to give a Faction standing increase for completing the mission the first time through. After that, it's only Corporation standing increase.

Hrmm,

Yes it was your thread I was referreing to, and I even ran the circle mission again later on and didn't receive anything. I might follow up with filing a petition and see where that leads me.

Thanks for all your replies!

Go into the character screen and under standings right click on the spesific factions to see the exact increase amount!
No need to write anything down Wink

I have done all the circle missions for Minmatar and have received several increases, but only a few missions namely the Important Storyline missions give significant boost to standings.
Social skill should be up on 5 before doing Circle and Tutorial agents for maximum effect!
