I disagree :-) 😃
There is two ways to get chips:
1.) Cheap one, on NPC stations, but U must multiple jumped, to get more.
2.) And now we have solution two, Rebels station, higher price, BUT U can have them as many as U want !! At once!
So, to get these two ways BALANCED, I would vote for maintain higher prices on Rebels!!
Othervice, there will be no reason to visit NPC stations, tooo baad!
P.S. To maintain whole universe, TIM must be fed gooood , right? 🤣
