So had a shower thought this morning about how everyone is upset with ranking and the rate at which VXP is given.
Trying to keep the idea within what the game could possibly do now or without huge alterations I thought why not have a piece of armor that gives a flat % boost to the vxp gained in a battle but doesn't give any actual armor to the ship. For instance its stats would look like...
Armor = 1 or 0
VXP boost = 10/15/20% (different tiers for FM prizes)
Weight: heavy but not so much you cant fit a ship
Build time: 4/8/12 hrs
what do you think? what needs to change? ( i kinda made the numbers up on the spot )
