Basic comms are way more useful than elite comms.

Agreed, I don't really find Elite Comm's to be useful. I need basics for Isotope 6 so, would you please consider changing it back or perhaps let us trade in Elite Comm's for Isotope 6.

I say keep Iso 6's for Basic. You can get plenty of them doing dailies.

I say make MMG's tradeable for Elite comms.

That would be cool ( I would have no problem giving up 250 elite comm's for 1 MMG) but, I don't see it happening.

Its not really that big of a deal to me. Only the gf part is elite comms. The daily part for entering it and all drops in the fp are still basic. Also as whats been stated there are lots of ways to get basic comms and i usually get a lot clearing dailies waiting for fp to pop

It's already done. Check the crafting material vendor on fleet. They cost 20 Exotic Element Equalizers and 350 Elite comms.

Yeah, the problem is that the cost of 20 EEEs is equal to or greater than the value of the MMG (on GTN). So you're not gaining anything by using the elite comms to barter for MMG; you're just throwing them away. At present market prices for EEEs/MMGs, elite comms have no value whatsoever.

Yeap. I know on JC that 20 EEEs sell for just under the cost of 2 MMGs. That vendor is a total waste. Now if they dropped the EEEs from the price I'd probably queue for tacticals again.

And let us not forget that with bolster you can now get ultimate comms for doing SM OPS naked (done it. just wore my hat) and for doing HM FPs which were designed to be done with basic comm gear. It's as if BW wants us to completely skip the elite comm gear tier. They now have even less value than they did before the patch.

I have 30 Elite comms now and will never get more. Can't buy anything with those. So, basically useless.
