Nothing they do is something I want to do
The main reason to buy one is because there's nothing else you can really do with billions of credits.
If don't already have the credits to waste, then whether or not it's worth grinding for it depends on your situation. But if you already have the credits, then what else are you going to sink them in to?
I only mine when I have to...I don't do mining.
Please Fdev, make a cheaper carrier (escort carrier).....
I'm not sinking my credits into anything, I don't even care about how much credits I have and certainly don't play to gain more.
I play to do the things I like, flying spaceships, that involves running missions, bountyhunting and my most favorite exploring.
Not for the credits but for the fun.
I'm running a lot of missions for the Dark Wheel at the moment, they don't earn much since I always choose the influence option as payment and I appreciate that reward more then credits.
But the real problem there is on FD's end, they need to figure out how to host these things without dragging down the game. They obviously launched FCs before they were ready for them.
