That was the thing with trading, one out of every 10 routes was subject to the whims of the crash gods. At that rate you can easily loose hours of profits in a blink of an eye.
Till now! CIG has upped their crash recovery game and sweet. I lost UI over Area 18, had to restart. A quick return to Area 18 revealed my Mercury filled to the brim with cargo ready to trade!
A few trade routes in my cutlass and I was ready for Nine Tails action. Pre postitioned just so – allowed a quick strike delivery.
Then I fired up the Mercury for runs between Hurston and MicroTech/ArcCorp. The creds started building up! Military quantum drives recommended.
