Agent Quality has been removed meaning that all Agents are now +20 in terms of payout and -20 in terms of access. Go forth, Capsuleers, and explore the world outside of Motsu and Dodixie.

Man, this is a nice update!
Not only more isk/hour but finally no crowded mission systems, meaning less ninja salvagers.

thats a very good measure indeed, infinite low sec choice and no more running 5 or 6 jump to get a decent agent.

The real question though is there going to be an increase in faction missions mixed in the security agents. I run level 4 internal security agents so I don't completely screw my faction standings and only have to decline 1 in 10-15 missions to prevent the faction hit. Now what's going to happen?

Also a Skill book price crash... I feel sorry for those who spent the LP rewards on said books.

Good news! The patch date was rescheduled. Which means I'm not going senile and suffering skill point loss in Reading Comprehension.

You get this completely wrong.

All that will change is the systems used. There will be a few new systems having the most security agents, and people will gather in those. Salvagers and Gankers will follow.

Information on a pilot's standings towards NPC corporations is no longer visible from 'Show Info'. You now see the standings information between you and the other pilot and the factions you each belong to.


What purpose does this change serve? Now if you're grinding standings for someone, you'll need their API to check progress instead of the character info in game. It's just an annoyance that serves no purpose.

Interesting change. I'm betting people with currently high agent qualities will be hit by a slight nerf, and people with currently low agent qualities will be hit by a significant boost. Reasoning is agent quality becomes less of a scarce resource, and people without it get it for free, generating more LP, driving ISK/LP down, etc, etc, driving the top end of mission running ISK/hr down.

Anyway. I guess its cool because whatever low sec/0.0 system I want to be in now has good quality agents (as opposed to being -14 half the time).

This has two effects:
- Low sec mission runners can no longer be pinned down to a single agent (which basically tells you which gate to camp)
- The expected "agent promiscuity" would have made the screen somewhat useless (and laggy) anyway.

They ought to spread out to more agents. Isn't this what the patch is supposed to be for? And you're not required to click on the npc standings tab. The relationship tab is not laggy, and it's the default if that's what you have it open last time you viewed someone's character info. You intentionally do things that produce lag, you get lag.

There is a profession that grinds standings for traders and the like, for a fee. This change kills that profession, at no benefit for everyone else.

Even better - more agents closer together, some duplicated even in the same station, and predictability re: the type of missions offered. Makes it easier to 'double up' on hauling missions, and bridge the 'time out' penalty for rejected empire faction combat missions.

So, just to be clear, those working for internal security divisions or divisions that rarely offered faction kill missions are going to start seeing more of those?
