During Conflict, you cannot purposefully change Influence AT ALL.Does anyone know if the missions you take now increase a faction's influence regardless of the faction's current state? For example, prior to the December patch, non-combat missions had no impact on a faction's standing while said faction was engaged in war. In order to increase a faction during wartime, you had to turn in combat bonds or bounties. Can we now pull anything from the mission board at any time and expect an increase at the next tic?
Now, all you can do is "win" each day. At the end of the week, the one with the most wins get +4%. Loser get -4%
In Election : Missions (maybe non-combat missions) help win the day
In War : Bonds and Bounties and CZ Battles count. Dav says Aggressive Combat based Missions count, but FD have always said that, and it was a lie. Dav never lies..... Error ! Paradox Detected ! Reboot Initiated !
No comment on Trade, Smuggling or Data in Elections, too much is still borked.
