Hey guys I see in the c-store for example there is a ship marked as rhode island refit. Does this ship level up with you or something? Like why buy it unless it does level up? I see it has a special module, so is it that to get certain special modules we have to buy lower tier ships we will never use again just to take the console off of it?
you buy the ship and you can use it for every character as you level it up, and yes many will come with special consoles that you can then put in ships limited by the console itself. Perhaps its not a perfect system but it is what we have.
And it appears that with the new f2p system buying ships as you level up will be prohibitive.....so if you don't mind spending the money instead of grinding then you pay a one time fee and every character there after you have a (in game) free ship that you don't spend dilithium to buy when you rank up. Save the dilithium for later use when you reach max level.
