If someone files a case with a faction change and someone else solve it, does the person who started the case get the faction hit or the one who finishes it? If the latter this would explain why some people have faction standings at around 150. I have not been able to get even to 50 alone. Is this fair gameplay or does anyone else see how it's unfair that only the detective agencies with the most members can ever get the player faction leader titles? That would equal eight, for the record.

I'm sorry. I should stress that I'm *not* starting an argument about this, and anyone who will try to argue against me will find a lack of response. I respect your opinions if you think I'm wrong. Let us leave it at that.

By the way Anikka, is it really obvious that it was meant to be like that, or is there a possibility that it has been overlooked for all those years? I have not followed the earlier discussions, so please enlighten me (if you have the answer). Cheers.

Well, one of the abilities in an agency is to store a case in the case files and have someone else take it out and solve it. If it wasn't meant to be that way, it would have been changed already.

If you are talking about the possibility of boosting being overlooked, well, that's a different story. I have no idea if it's something Ben ever considered the possibility of. I can't say that it worries him or doesn't, but if it does, he'll change it, limit it, or make a rule about it.

I think being the head of a fraction have its advantages, but it's not worth the effort to fight over, especially if you haven't acquired all your fraction skills and is planning to do that (since becoming the head of a fraction usually means the fraction standing on the other two fractions in the same city usually goes for a dip on the negative side).

It'd be fun though, if you've already done what the big world of Noir can offer you, and get your agency to help you (plus doing little jobs EVERY day). I think it is a feat in itself and i'd give an applause to those capable of climbing +150 on a certain fraction.

When it comes to these fractions, I want to be the head of the fraction 3/4! :-P

There's another way of improving your faction standing considerably, and it can be done in Cairo, but I don't know if describing it would be considered a spoiler, so I won't say anything more :).

As Rosamund said there are ways (absolutely legal but they are considered spoilers) in the game to climb up high in a fraction. I did it up to 301 just to see if it is possible …and believe me it is (it is possible even up to 500 or even 1000 points if you wish to do it for fun).
For the time being you do not have the skills that are required in the game to climb up high and quickly. I can assure you that climbing (without using any boosters at all!) 19 points (34 points if you are a bit lucky) per day is absolutely feasible and can be done. You simply need to focus on that and you can easily do it.
For now I would recommend you not to try it (when and if you acquire the skills needed) at least before you get all the benefits and skills that all fractions can provide
