So why do I keep shooting minny ships in my thukker missions.................

I don't mind shooting feds, but it annoys the **** out of me that i have to ruin minny standings just to do thukker missions.

Meh?

This isnt the first time EVEs backstory & EVEs gameplay have found themselves at odds. It wont be the last either I expect. EVE is nothing if not incredably slow to change things. Course I gave up thinking the two reflected eachother unless CCP wanted them to (coincidently when they have a new trailer/expansion to show off) when joined FW.

They're part of the Minmatar race, but not part of the Republic. They live in the Great Wildlands region.

This is not correct, the Repubic and Thukkers now have an open border policy. They have not as of yet JOINED the Republic.

It meant nothing within the department of CCP that takes care of the mission distributions.

Very little of the storyline development is being carried over to actual name play elements. All those bombastic game play trailers are just a fart in the wind in regard to what is actually going on in the New Eden cluster.

Hrm, on paper perhaps, but in the chronicle it seems as though it means alot more than that in practice, given by what the three minnies say.
In any case, I don't think they'd still be blowing each other up.

You mean the joint attack that assassinated numerous people within the Republic?

It was a Minmatar-Thukker fleet. Not a Republic-Thukker fleet.

they are not part of the minmatar republic.
and a lot of them are cretin who kill decent honest hardworking minmatar fleet folks, with little brutor kids back home, just to make a quick buck in the wild lands.

It WAS Republic Fleet and Thukker Tribe, Minmatar government however didn't condone it (yeah right, scrapheap bastards).

Actually.. Wasn't it the Elder fleet and completley unrelated to the Minmatar Navy and Thukker Tribe?

The Republic fleet was defending their border while this all happened (preparing for an Amarr counter-attack most likely). About the closest they got to working with the Thukker Tribe was not killing the Elder fleet when it retreated through Republic space.

You mean the attack where the Elder fleets invaded the Amarr Empire with the defiants, while the republic fleet stayed in their systems? That one? The one where there were no Republic naval forces involved?Wink

Roleplay wise your agent is right to get you to shoot Republic ships, since the days of it's formation the republic has activeley turned it's back on matari tradition, they use(d) propaganda to turn the majority minmatar public against the Thukker tribe with their lies.

P.S. Thukker tribe has never been part of the republic and I doubt it ever will be.

well thats what I got out of the line " a mix of republic fleet and thukker tribe vessels"

also the elder fleet kinda includes the thukker tribe.

It's easy to get confused when CCP insist on explianing everything in "Jibberish".

Thukker are part of the Angel Cartel and Serpentis power blocks and had negative standings to the Minmatar Republic up until recently.

Only with Empyrean Age 1.0 did the faction standings relationship between the Thukker Tribe and the Minmatar Republic get reset to neutral.

Do not expect the Republic Fleet NPCs to disappear from Thukker missions until Thukker gets put into the Minmatar/Gallente block.
