So it costs 15% less to have the same build, but we have 25% less to spend. That's still a deficit of 10% which means that we can not have the same build. According to the devs, its an 8% decicit, and according to a lot of players its a lot more than 10%.

Possibly this variance stems from the fact that so many people have so many diffrerent builds depending on ship and character class?

Either way, its a loss in space skills, which is the heart of the issue for many players. Surely the devs could come up with a better solution to "level the playing field". (which is another pointless endevour in my opinion, but I will leave that for a separate discussion)
