Is there some way to permanently opt out of burner missions?

If there isnt one already then im requesting that a permanent opt out option be added, it is getting tiresome rejecting burners. Just today i had to reject 6 burner missions in a row to get a normal one.

Yawn,  I'm right as usual. The predictability kinda gets boring really.

It would be nice to be able to permanently opt out of many types of missions. For example, many people will not do "faction kill missions". Some don't like drone missions. However, at the moment, there is not any way to do these things.

Yes, the automated grinding isn't automated enough yet, it still takes some brain cells and decisions. This will not stand!

We need a better way to gain empire standing than mission.

We also need a method to repair concord stranding.

If you go working for a pirate factions you can eventually repair all the other standings except for CONCORD. You're permafucked

To be fair, none of us are opposed to the addition of burner missions, but I feel that the fact that there is (unlike regular missions) no adverse penalty to declining the several burner missions you typically get per normal mission should be considered.

No offense, but how is this any different than when people bitched up and down about your char's AUR total listed on your wallet screen? You know, the one that is no longer displayed anywhere on the wallet screen? A simple toggle for agents to skip burner missions can't be that unreasonable of a request either. At the very least, isn't this a better option than asking for people who like to run them to bite the bullet for the rest of us and have CCP significantly reduce their likelihood of being offered?

I'm not entirely sure as I have no expertise in that arena, but I believe running missions for non-pirate agents in low sec is a possible answer (unless there are no such agents in low sec/outlaw space?). Unless I'm mistaken, shwacking officer spawns also nets a sec increase. There' s also those new NPC's that drop the tags you can trade for sec increases as well.

There just isn't anything that can be said!

Just be happy you are able to decline them without penalty of cooldown, and move on.

There is a way to do it

How do your overview settings affect what missions you get offered?

I have no clue when it comes to most PvE. It doesn't really seem all that logical but not everything in the game is, so interested to know.

Its to do with they way you have to go back to doing level 3 missions after you lose your battleship.

Level 3 doesn't have burner missions. Problem solved.

Well, yes, just thought the same...

How about an "Auto Win" Button?
Go into mission, which you might win since you maxed out you mission boat and press "Auto Win".
No longer need for that time consuming fight stuff...

Wrong forum section for this, but +100 from me. Burner missions are "no penalty for declining" , you should be able to opt out completely as they are optional.

No, we shouldn't be able to opt out of other types of missions like faction missions, the cool down/standings loss mechanics are built around the penalties for declining too many, but burner missions have no decline penalty. It's annoying to have to click through so many burners when you have no intention of running burners at all.

Yes, clicking that one Reject button must be so tiring.

Perhaps you could use the exercise.

Clicking 1 isn't tiring. Clicking 3, 4,5,6 and 7 isn't tiring either. Just annoying as hell.

When it was just one kind of Burner mission (Frigs), it wasn't bad, maybe on click through every few normal missions. Now there are three kinds (frigs, frig teams, and now Cruiser/BCs). If they add battleship burners it will get worse. CCP should have included a way to opt out of Anomic missions before adding Team and Base versions, that they didn't (and haven't) is simply bad/lazy game design.

and I have no intention of running most of those pesky annoying normal missions, and the standings mechanics have yet to mess with my ability to do so. it is annoying to have to click decline on the super boring missions. Seriously for most missions I think I spend more time in warp, which I don't really mind as it lets me forum post, but to sit there and shoot at a ton of NPCs for a crap payout... no thanks, about as fun as mining.
