The first thing out of my mouth when they did that was, **** awesome! I remember dealing with EV NM in its buggy incarnation, nothing funny about those repair costs. Of course now it is too easy but that is why there is EC NM.
let me explain why i hated the low repair costs:
It meant my gulidies that liked to **** around and do stupid ****, could do it more often and we had less legitimate reason to ***** at them for being dumb, because we could wipe 20 times without equaling the cost of 1 wipe before.
I also just didn't like the feeling of "if i die it really doesn't matter we can go in again easy" it promoted lazy play
