Just finished the day 13 broker alien weapon development however it seems i was out of storage spaces. I didn’t want to “buy” more when I could easily clean up plenty of duplicates. But it seems that in this case you HAVE to buy or lose the reward? Whats up with that? That should be fixed so you don’t lose a reward until you actually take it. If there’s a conflict it should go back into the queue, not be lost. Certainly if the rewards are required for specialty items like the Thi’Lith Beam.
Rare resources do not consume any storage space, unless if you were given a component with it.
