Why were CONCORD/DED agents removed?

Any word on them ever being reinstated?

It became too easy for people to gank like crazy and then just grind back the security with the missions.

CONCORD is + aligned with everyone, so one mission for a Concord agent gave + sec status and + faction standings with everyone.

They didn't just remove the agents, they cut everyone's sec status and standings in half and maxed it at +5. I doubt they'll add the agents back, EVER.

They could potentially change this, (from an RP standpoint the caldari will very much dislike concord at this point.).
But they have to make:

A. sec status and concord stadnings seperate things (and apparantly this is very coded into eacother).
B. Make standings differ, so not everyone is +concord (well empirewise that is)
C. Make it so you don't get +faction boost for every faction. (sorta ties in with B)
D. Make the missions for concord bring in next to no LP. (because theres tooo many benefits otherwise, and no pooint to incursions)

Also they changed the concord lp store with incursions and it became to easy to earn concord lp with missions so now it can only be done through incursions. And a long time ago ccp said they were not going to bring them back so doubtful.
