I'm absolutely loving the *limited-time* change they've made to the mod store, allowing a higher quantity of higher-quality mods, available for ship credits, with only a 15-crystal refresh.
Most of us speculate this is a trap of sorts... either many new ships or ship hardware update is on the horizon, or higher-tiered mods are on the horizon. I say spring the trap.
The ability to get 5-dot gold mods with speed secondaries NOW is worth future pain & suffering. If the collective mind is wrong about the trap, then those who invested made a great decision and took advantage of an opportunity.
I mean, does anybody think it's totally impossible for the devs to decided to do something "nice" for the player community?
