I have a hard enough time making credits as it is.
and if its going to be about the money.... think of it like this:
People are selling things on the exchange for far more than what the product is worth. up to 10 times the value of the item for sale. I've seen, no crap, a mk4 disruptor array for 30k. F-that. It's not worth 5k. It's these A-Jacks that are screwing up your ideal economy, not combat. Leave the Death Penalty out, fix the exchange, and we'll be fine
the REASON the prices are so high for crap is because by even mid game people have way more money than they could hope to spend on reasonably priced things. Everyone can get gear from badges so the money just piles. As people get end game and roll alts they will send millions of credits down to starting characters and further drive up the price of everything.
We need a DP money sink along with other money sinks (I think free ships as you lvl up is stupid, by each tier you should be able to afford the new ship or else not get it)
