Problem is this stuff is junk at our level i end up throwing away a lot more than i keep seems the loot table is messed up level wise i keep getting mk IV stuff, mk II ect as drops.
You know I wouldn't mind if it was 'food'! I'm a Tribble Breeder. I keep the chart up all the time. And I get excited when food drops...

But for all Ground Explore missions, even the anomalies are worthless!

There's so many missions in this game where my team-mates say, "Seriously ... how long to you think it took some Developer to make this mission? Were they high?"
I hear you. Sometimes I do those missions, and the "collect 5 data samples", just to get a few more explore badges. But most of the time I warp in ... discover it's a ground mission ... then I warp out. I love the "Defend the Asteroid Base" missions. The Enemies come to me. It's 4 regular squads and a Battleship. And while Battleships almost always drop batteries, some of the others drop a white item.

And I guess that when I'm doing explore missions the "reward" is the item I can buy with the Badges. Still, since I've been doing the regular missions with a friend, so I have to split the drops with him on those, I'm relatively poor. And it's my perception that when a game does this type of thing, the Devs are choosing to promote RMT. Though they may not be doing so consciously. And I really don't understand why they would foster that kind of thing. It destroys a game's economy.
