given the vast game wide agreement that EC is a joke, id say....urm.....nope.
This, of course, begs the question.. if EC is such a joke (and seems to become more so over time), then why bother dropping the cost of the runabout in the first place?

my guess is to make it more affordable to the lower level (or new) players who may not have earned over 100k in EC by the time they can do the new weekly.

the option is there to buy it (since the mission or your own BO states that the runabout would be better then the type8), and why not make it more affordable at that point?

just a guess.

EC only is a joke to those who have it in abundance.

Ain't gonna happen.

1) Because its so frickin easy to get EC, ts pointless

2) Thats how economic systems work. I bought and Xbox 360 for $350, it went on sale several months later for $250, i didn't get a refund.

Not everyone is exploiting other players for EC. Those who do have it easy. Those who don't not so much actually.

That aside, it still doesnt make sense to refund anything.

True. When the OP chose to spend the EC, he was fine with what the price tag showed. So something that was okay earlier is now wrong because...?
