Well, if you get 240 fleet comms from the new space missions, you can get grade 8 material crate every day.
Compared to old 18min, 40 comms VS 30min, 240 comms, difference is GIGANTIC.
So in other words you get 1-4 stabilizers(200-800k creds) every day and you can use those to obtain BIS gear.
The logic goes like this. You spend RL money to buy upgrades into Soloplayer minigame. Then you use the rewards from your solo minigame to get gear that is equal to currently hardest raid content. If this is not P2W, then i dont know what is.
