I cannot believe there wasn’t a thread complaining about it already…
Missions to buy a speciffic ship are Stupid, with capital S.
Buying gear you don’t want/need as a part of tutorial/“missions” should NEVER be done, or refunded fully(100% or more) as soon as you do it, especially with permanent items involved.
This is not encouraging, it’s infuriating, especially when you cannot opt out despite having a gone through that gutter once with a different faction.
If I eneter a faction tree only to get their Fighters, I should never face a “mission” to buy a Frigate, vice-versa, and ditto for Interceptors.
Seriously, I come back after a lenghty break seeing some exciting changes to the combat and ships, and now I’m at the brink of dropping out again because of how xxxx the requests that block out half my screen(exaggeration for effect) are.
