While I agree the current system encourages skipping sets, when I start running a character through ground for the first time I generally buy the MK X set right off the bat and ignore the MK XI unless I get rare tech.
Reasons for this:
1) I collect the necessary EDCs from Space STFs first, I largely prefer space to ground.
2) Running ground without the instant remod makes ground even less enjoyable - it's a borderline must-have IMO.
So for the price of 60, as opposed to 120, EDCs I can grab the MK X set which is not all that much inferior to the MK XI set - and I get the most important bit of all, instant re-modulation.
