Cryptic took some of the wiggle away by allowing Fed/KDF to run x/15 instead of x/25 though. So it will increase the gap some potentially because of the loss of the Efficiency/Potential boost x/15 gives over x/25. Sure, it was only a case of dropping it from -10 to -8 at the x/15 vs. x/25 zone; but it definitely allowed some wiggle room.
Have to wonder if I blundered...meh. Going through and showing how it would be okay, not that bad...then not long after, the Fed/KDF get x/15 as well which threw everything off.
I haven't bothered to do a recalc. I probably should. I just kind of changed my avatar to Paradise Lost after that change though...meh.
