Carrier Component Chest Sale: My Opinion

This would be a nice little sale if the items weren't so unusable.
Yes I got 3 from the Carrier Sale.
Unfortunately they weigh far to much to ever use.

100 weight is far to much when you consider them along side ship weighs and the tiny tiny amounts of ship weight increases.

Any player wishing to buy these will wish to build a ship with a full set of them.

Lets take the carrier for instance.
Starting weight 300.
Weight Expansion in 30 weight increments.

Expansion  1 = 100 Gold
Expansion  2 = 200 Gold
Expansion  3 = 400 Gold
Expansion  4 = 800 Gold
Expansion  5 = 1600 Gold
Expansion  6 = 3200 Gold
Expansion  7 = 6400 Gold
Expansion  8 = 12800 Gold
Expansion  9 = 25600 Gold
Expansion 10 = 51200 Gold

That raises a carriers weight to 600.
A player would still need 7 more expansions to fit 2 more.

Just to use 3 of these components with 5 50 weight components would require 9 expansions.

The price of weight expansions quickly becomes absurd.
The 3 I have are nice collectibles, but I will never use them so long as they weight 100.  Nor buy extra.
People asking me advice are being explained this same logic.
They simply weigh to much.

I advise against anyone purchasing this special offer.

I suggest weight reduction down to 60 or 70.
Still very high but at least now low enough to be combined with other high value components and be plausible.

I wish to add.
Even if a person chose to put just 3 of these carrier components on a ship.
Then have the rest all be blue components.
A player would need a minimum 5 weight expansions to build a ship.
5 weight expansions requires VIP7.
For most ships VIP9 is required and more expansions.
