as topic. I’m ok with loyalty only gain through contract…but the cool down needs to go, and the reward needs to be tweeked such that it does not fall behind faction reputation by too much. Taking so long to unlock something is not a good motivational tool.
Mk3 might only be marginally better…but for many of us it is a motivation to improve faction loyalty to equip our whole ship with blues. Also, I’m not so sure my friends who had just recently started this game is gonna stay after this change.
