Thank you very much for helping me understand this issue. Superior teamwork would seem to make a difference. However, I looked at the teamwork stats this morning and teamwork seems to be changed with common, uncommon, rare, and very rare teamwork ratings all topping out at 5%. Now if 5% stacked then it would still make a nice bonus however 4 5% teamwork humans at 20% would seem to be less advantageous than 4 15% teamwork humans at 60% exploit damage. I dont know if this was a nerf or not but VR Humans have been coming down in price and as of this morning you could find them below $1 mill wheereas a few days ago they were $5 million and up in price.

Right now the only difference that I can see in VR Purple Humans and R Blue Humans is that VR's do get the 2nd superior trait just as the other species do.

It seems that sanity is returning to the pricing structure of VR Humans so the immense and rare benefits have been reduced.

Thanks for your help

Happy Prosperity All,

because there is always someone stupid enough to buy them.

Not sure why even people bother with the exchange. So many people pull a high price out of their arse just cause they know someones dumb enough to buy it. I see efficient engines going for a fortune but I get them free as rewards. Chances are most people can but instead of being patient spend that useless thing known as energy

why would you buy a bo. after a while you'll end up with so many rare bo in your assigment screen simply by these "i want to join you" missions.

i got a dozen rare bo already and i am only a captain. i suppose only 2 or 3 of them are humans.

The discussion was about "Very Rare" Humans, not the Rare ones, There are four levels of rarity,
White, Green, Blue, and Pink. You get many Blues, not many Pinks.

As far as why the pricing is so high I think there are a few reasons, the humans do have benefits for certain play styles. to just write off anyone who is not exactly like you as being stupid seems a little immature.

One main reason they are so high, is that right now BOs are the only thing in the game that is trade able and limited. you cant just get all you want by blasting away at things. When you stop leveling you get no more BO's. If you want more, then you must start a new char and get it to high levels for a few more chances for a Pink.

If you want humans for whatever reason your odds are not good of just earning them, so the only other option is the exchange.

Besides, as you level up its so easy to make money, and you really don't have to buy anything. The best weapons and gear are earned with the marks, medals and badges. What good is walking around with a few million in energy credits? They are useless for anything but buying BO's if you are doing missions for rewards.

I store Officers on the exhange at high prices. Mostly because I figure if they sell for that price I can get another one down the road. You can only have so many in your assignment slot.
