You just fell into the trap I left for you. I thought you might try and bring up its mesta it’s not the same. Firstly unlimited mesta isn’t actually a thing, you are limited to the time you can invest into the game, play the market etc, or limited to the amount of real life money you can spend on the game on AC scratch
yes you are, but if you want/need more you can if you so will spend more time/money to get more of them. you can't do that for mission badges, you're limited to a set amount.
But has I said you can completely bypass the mission badge swap shop with mesta, I had a look earlier theirs a bunch of 6s units with those capsule affixes on it, just waiting to transfers passes onto your 8s units. Has you’ve said mesta is so abundant this shouldn’t be an issue for you.
my base unit is made, and actually fits what im playing, which is different than the typical if i find a 6 slot units that doesn't use vet/crack sure i'll buy it now.
sg is limited but as long as we don't get support scratch, which might never happen now. sg doesn't make you choose between gear and fashion.
