I've run hundreds of lvl IVs on my forum banned account since they were introduced...

I have not, to this very second, ever been offered a burner mission. Perhaps CCP does account tagging like Blizzard does where your account has a randomly generated attribute that will increase or decrease your drop chances.. this is true, I've had 3 Blizzard devs confirm it.

Well, then I must one of the "lucky" ones. I probably get them about as often as a regular mission. Every few missions I get a string of anywhere between three to five burners. Considering how much the UI still to this day lags, it's rather annoying. Today was the first day I actually got a couple agents to offer one regular mission, then a burner if I declined the regular, then another regular instead of the usual several burners back to back. I will say I hope CCP doesn't just reduce the burner offers, that just steps on the toes of people who do actually like running them.

I have admit Nevil Oscillator makes a point of where requesting for a opt-out of burners lies as far as priorities. He is correct that it isn't high on anyone's list..hell, it's not honestly on everyone's list. There are bigger issues worth tackling. Whether such an addition is easy to apply or whether it deserves what is likely critical dev time, none of us can really control. It is what it is.

It's a sound solution for a minor issue a few of us have to deal with and one that hopefully would be that easy and simple to implement. Is it needed? No. Would it be a nice option for some of us (including, yes, myself)? Yes.

"Trouble is, those things cost like a million and a half each."

"----, you pay me half that and I'll hump in some c4 and blow the ---- out of it my own damn self."

Not quite,

At least the OP is on about missions he has the right to decline, therefore considers them spam, I agree he has a point regarding that, even if it is such a minor point that it is difficult to seriously consider as important

the way standings mechanics work at a certain point declining a rather large subset of missions is a viable strategy.

Does that work ? reducing your standings by declining missions too often , for the purpose of gaining standing with their enemies ?

nope, that doesn't work. when you decline you only lose standings. but you can decline a lot of missions and stay high enough you can take missions from the agent. the decline penalty is small, where gains from completing missions are large. there are a bunch of missions I just find boring, and a bunch that just don't pay enough, so I always decline them, but can continue to pull other better missions.
