i have several level 3 agents for various factions,well after the dbase upgrade,i started workin toward gettin another faction level 3.heres the strangeness,o have 14 charisma,social 5,i got to level 2 agent of awesome quality+17/10,have faction and corp maxed out to top rating.usually this means fast refferals.

not only am i not gettin a refferal after +50 missions,which i usually get at around 30+,but the missions are repeating with the same retread bull**** over and over,and no special missions seem to spawn at all,as they have with every other agent ive leveled thru.

something is bjorked,ive done the same 3-5 missions with location only changes for last 3 days.

At this piont im gettin rather tired of the Improved dbase,as since it has gone online eve has generally slowed down almost all game features,and somehow managed to screw my agent.

now if this is another one of ccps stealth nerf,thanx ever so much for the announcement to your payin customers.i say this because the agent i question is a mimitar agent,ie only faction giving tech 2 bp atm.

thuroughly disgusted atm with the current state of affairs,having a very hard time keeping corpmates from quiting eve,and everyday finding fewer and fewer reasons to even bother login on.

I have to agree with that. Today just before downtime i had 4 mineral missions don`t get me wrong there its ok easy ones. But after the break thoose missions kept coming.
Its kinda boring to get up to 300+ missions and do alot minerals.

Btw got a lvl 3 agent to.

In the past few days iv been getting missions which will not allow me to accept them, never happened before. I click the accept button but nothing happens.
I expect some server code has changed to cause these stuck missions.

If your corp and faction ratings are maxed out at 6.0, this will result in boring repetitive missions...

I've noticed that refusing missions to lower the standings helps alot. Just don't let them sink below 5.0.

As to referrals, I'm at loss... only received one from my lvl 3 agent. My corp mate has 6 lvl 3 agents... strange.

I've done 160 missions for my level 3 agent and had not one single referral. Had 9 implants, mind, so not grumbling too much! :-)

I have 152 missions completed for my level 2 agent and 0 failures and I still haven't been referred to a level 3 agent. What am I doing wrong?

Posted - 2003.10.25 11:10:00 - [15]

hiya ppl, here's one for you, i started doin missions knowing little about charisma, i had 4 in my attributes, so i bought n started training social skill, after 17 missions at lvl 1 social, got refered to a lvl 2 agent. i moved to the new agent location, now have lvl 3 social, still 4 for charisma, i did 70 missions to get lvl 3 agent, moved to location of lvl 3 agent, have done 253 missions for lvl 3, nuthin special apart from about 10 implants so far.
my point is, i think ccp have nerfed the missions part of the game, because 1, they did underestimate the scale of how many of us would do the missions, and 2, the next chapter of this part of the game is not ready, so they have slowed it right down, think about it, how would you slow summin down without actually killin player interest. makes a little sense to me, take it easy out there Wink

Seems to be something very wrong here. I started work on a new agent when the news about the changes came out. I'm currently working on my Gal Navy level 2 Awesome agent, and its been 90+ missions without a level 3 referral. There is no shortage of agents in the Navy until level 5, and I have 12 CHA, Social 4.

I have also had 2 experiences with missions that will not let be accept or decline (the buttons refused to be clicked).

I'm sure its a bug somewhere; the "trigger" to get the special mission for a new agent doesn't seem to work (the old v.1 v.2 missions). BTW I'm an experienced mission doer with over 1 K missions under my belt and a BP so this isn't some new guy whining here.

Something definitely got broken or nerfed around the time of the hardware upgrade.

At that time I had done about 105 missions for my level 3 agent with 8 mem implant missions, 2 'guristas emissary' missions and 2 other special security missions. I was happy. Cool

As soon as the server had been up for a while after the upgrade I was silly enough to log on and take a mission, only for the server to go down for the night, causing me to have my first failed mission for my best l3 agent. Confused

Since then I have done another 80 missions for that agent, with no special missions at all. I have tried failing a mission on purpose and refusing several to drop my corp standing, but no joy. In my opinion, something definately has been switched off. Rolling Eyes

Ah well, time for some npc pirate hunting. Very Happy

I hate to be a "Me Too-er" but...

Me too

I had a pair od adjacent Caldari agents who were giving me implants and special missions on a reletively frequent basis. The odd cruiser-kill mission sure broke up the monotony of the missions post-nerf. I switched over to Jove to get a Lv3 in hopes of getting in on the ground-floor with them.

When it became apparant that the ground-floor was flooded with sewage and not likely to be cleaned any time soon I went back to my Caldari agents. I've now done 50-odd missions between the two of them and gotten nothing more interesting than "Save the Premier".

Aside from making me really really hate Caldari Projectionists I was OK with this as I figured it was just bad luck but I'm seeing some sort of trend here...

I sure hope it goes away before my enthusiasm does...
