Well the commendation items all recieved a price reduction, but the crafted items material costs are still insanely high. I hope this is addressed soon.
I think you saw all the addressing they wanted to do, They want people to use real cash to pay and win, that is why this stuff is on the cartel market. No ther point to it than that. Wait til lwe start to see armor, mods, enhancements just one level behind bis on the market.
