If anything this is just going to make the other things that cost a lot of EC more expensive, because I now don't have to spend 100-200 million EC for a top ship on consoles - but players with a massive EC hoard are going to outbid players on other things EC can still buy: lockbox ships, lockbox doffs, and lockbox traits; and unlike consoles, there's really no "next best alternative" for the doffs and traits (e.g. Marion).

But I guess it's better to have an economy where the only things worth buying off the exchange are items that people (directly or indirectly) paid real money for (right)? (edit, that seemed snarky but I didn't really mean it to be. It's more of a legitimate question)
