So, I decided I wanted to go Federation, and I was trying to decide which of the 2 factions I wanted to play, when I realized that the prices when buying the ships were incredibly different.
For example, if you take a look at the fighters:
If I want to buy all the fighters in the Armada faction (1 each tier, 4 in total), I can just go and buy them straight, one every tier:
T1 170.000, T2 850.000, T3 2.450.000, T4 5.500.000, making a total spent of 8.970.000 at the end. You just need to buy the 4 Fighters.
On the other hand, to buy all the fighters in the Vanguard faction , I just can’t buy them straight like in Armada, I need to buy a bunch of other ships because the tree doesn’t let me do it other way (Reds are the fighters you want, green are the ones you need to buy because the tree structure doesn’t leave you any other choice):
T1 170.000, T2 480.000, T2 680.000, T2 850.000, T3 1.750.000, T3 2.100.000, T4 4.550.000, T4 6.650.000, making a total spent of 17.230.000 , almost double than in the Armada faction !!! , You need to buy 8 ships in total, double the ships than Armada faction.
Anyone can explain to me why such a big difference in price between the 2 factions ? Why should I bother going Vanguard ? It makes no sense to me… Going Armada saves you LOTS of money on the long run.
I did’t check it, but I guess the same would happen to the other factions.
