Alright, so I need to set up a research POS in highsec. There are already good threads on how to do this and whatnot, however I have 1 question that doesn't appear to be answered (and if it is, please kindly point the way to it.) I know about the service corps one can hire to make a corp with the NPC faction standing needed to anchor the tower, or to improve the standings of an existing corp to do the same.
The alternative is to grind up the faction standing yourself (being that this will be a 1-man corp, or 3-man at most) but that's where my question lies - if one were to grind the needed standing using the various methods and means available, how much of a hit do the opposing faction(s) incur on you?
For example, if I grind up to +5.0 standing with Amarr, how much will the Minmatar and Gallente hate on me for that? I really don't care what my drop in standing with those factions will be as long as I'm not KOS with them. Is it possible?
