Curious about faction modules.

Hi! I noticed faction modules aren't available for easy purchase on the test server, which is totally fine.

But what confuses me is that they are still available as market orders. Since ISK is effectively unlimited on the test server, it seems like the obtainment of faction modules, if needed, is simply less convenient, as opposed to prevented.

Is there a reason faction mods are not available at the 100.00 discount price, but they ARE still available via standard market buy and sell prices?

I'm not complaining about the availability or lack thereof; I'm simply inquiring about the developers' intent, since this strikes me as a bit of an inconsistency.

Faction mods are not seeded so that only the most frequent players of the test server can get them (because they will most likely be the first ones to log in after a mirror and buy up all the good stuff). This is to reward those that play on the test server on a regular basis.

Brilliant! Thank you - I would not have thought of that in a million years, but it sounds like a perfectly reasonable explanation.

Or you can /copyships modules in a hauler to SISI. I don't see why you think it's so that the "elite SISI regulars" can get everything? Do you think SISI is to pander to you to test your bad fits?
