I wouldn't mind it if the costs of these items from fleet comms was reasonable- it isn't though.
You have to do similar grinding timesinks to get full grade 7 from fleet comms as you would operations grade gear- except this is a side mini game, it's not supposed to be a super grind.
At least the power converter is more or less free- but yeah, I haven't spent a coin since the shop came out- but it is tempting to even just buy the weapons pack.
I'm not really upset- again, it's a mini game and I'm not doing space missions for gear or BH comms or whatever- I do them cuz I like to spend half an hour here or there just wasting time in space.
It'll take a dedicated grind though to afford these the legit way.
Why spend any cartel coins on the space parts when they are on the GTN for 100k or less right now?
