Some days just are

Post by Obion » Sun Dec 14, 2014 11:04 pm



Video kinda sums up how my day in EVE went.
Been working hard on standings so I could do L4 missions, it takes a very long time solo.
Today I finally got there.
First bummer - 19 jumps to get to the L4 security agent. Travelling took a while but I was finally getting to use my Navy Dominix, T2 sentries and all the shabang.
Got to the station and requested my first mission. Ship restrictions "Frigs only". Hoooray!!!
Off to nearest station, bought a frig and some goodies. Another 7 jumps to mission place.
15 seconds in and I was sitting in my pod.

And there my day ended.

Huh?? L4 Security mission restricted to frigates?!? :o

That sounds.... extremely strange, as I seriously doubt many frigates (other than highly pimped-out assault frigs flown by really skilled players) would stand a snowball's chance in hell inside such a mission. :?

It sounds like it would have been a burner mission. I believe you can cancel these without standings loss however don't quote me on that. Its been a while since I did any form of mission and I haven't tried a burning mission before.

Good song though, I like it.

It does sound like a burner misson.

Here are some links about them:
http://community.eveonline.com/news/dev ... -missions/
http://community.eveonline.com/news/dev ... orld-burn/
https://forums.eveonline.com/default.as ... s&t=369477

Nost's right, you can cancel them, as they say in their presentation:
"Burner Missions are 100% optional. There will be no standings penalty for turning down or failing these missions. Your friendly neighborhood security agent knows that not every capsuleer will have the equipment or skills to take on these missions and won’t be offended if you decline."

Afaik, you wouldn't stand a chance on a T1 frig. Either use a T2 or a faction one, but, like CCP shows on the second link burner missions are a ISK sink :P

Burner missions are CCP's way of trying to bridge the gap between PvE and PvP. whether they have done it well i couldnt say but some harder missions that need thought are always good.
