I loved this game but damn.
It’s impossible to advance or get any of the new content (with exception of Vulcan Cannon) without buying/spending GS now.
Due to random containers dropping everything but what you need, you are forced to use the awful market system.
There is no way to trade parts or items without using GS.
Mininum GS prices for the market are prohibitive.
Event items aren’t even guaranteed for people who play a lot any more. Namely new specmod items that don’t drop from their containers that cost an insane amount of Iridium.
The game is one huge useless grind.
You can’t advance or gain currency besides credits outside of T5. (Or your maximum playable rank.)
Vouchers are now only actually obtainable in OS from super rare drops.
OS is useless and gives no useful rewards now besides impossible escort mono missions.
Mysterious Containers don’t exist any more, or are no longer accessible, even with the Spatial Scanner GS item.
No ways to get GS in game any more without someone having spent money, even though it is now supposedly a “market currency” that “can be obtained without paying”. (Lies.)
All the new stuff is of limited availability, so players who actually have a life will NEVER be able to get them without paying.
JUST MAKE IT A PAY TO PLAY GAME FOR Fx** CK’S SAKE. UNDO ALL OF THIS NEW MESS AND LET EVERYTHING HAPPEN WITH CREDITS. SELL AESTHETIC ITEMS FOR REAL MONEY.**
