What part of Free Doffs are no longer free do you not understand?
the only significant cost is on the compactor. :p Branch recruiting is still free. general recruitment isn't very expensive.
Yeah it's not cheap, but ask yourself this: Would I buy more than one Scorpion hangar even if it was cheap? It's not the sort of thing I can imagine buying multiples of. I'd get just enough for my carrier(if I had one) and that'd be it.
It's not something you have a reason to do unless you want the hangar.
EDIT: in my previous post when I said "he's exaggerating" I meant tom61sto.
