That’s crazy since it’s actually as good as an axe, hammer and shovel all rolled into one!
I use one un-forged and 1 hit any block in sight on T1/T2… ideal for building on my home planet!
So yes, it IS actually good for something!
And as for the age old p2w discussion, there are ways that real life money can help you achieve certain things easier than without. One is of course getting enough plots to make the settlement you want OR to preserve or block resources. Other option is that you can buy cubits and then spend them on skill reset points, especially early game that USED to be mighty handy, now until level 20 you can keep switching skills for free. But even after level 20 it comes in handy so, so much if you can just throw some cash at it instead of waiting until you levelled again.
There’s no winning in a game such as this but the term has become to mean more any leg up you can buy with money, no matter if there is no winning in a game…
To deny these aren’t like that is silly.
Not saying it’s a really big issue tho, but denying there’s nothing like it is incorrect…
