FW mission rats should not aggress if you are aligned

Situation: I am in galmil, chased a caldari player into his mission and the gallente rats tried to aggro me.

This is absurd. The hisec navy npcs don't shoot me. The gal rats in plexes don't shoot me. Why would they in missions?

FW missions are supposed to be risky, but if the missioner can just burn out 140km and let the rats switch to me, where the hell is the risk? Especially considering that the beacon doesn't pop up until the missioner goes to the location there is very little risk for SB FW missioners which is not how it should be considering the payouts. Bad design imo.

Your analysis above already contains one key to your future success ... think about how you can use the game mechanics and characteristics of a SB to your advantage. I think CCP did a good job in balancing this part.

You are right . . . everything should agress you all the time \o/

Empty responses telling me I am crying or think that "everyone should agree with me all the time" is nice if you need to practice your trolling, but that doesn't address a single issue I presented.

The implication is they are only problems in your own mind.

If you have an idea to fix your perceived "problem" then post your idea in F&I. Your OP is nothing but a childish rant.

Yes, they should shoot you whether you are aligned with that faction or not. Otherwise people would just have an alt in the opposing faction, fleet up with it, and use that to easy mode FW missions.
