And everyone knows those rigs are damn useful. People are dying all the time with those defensive rigs, typically when they know they are flying somewhere dangerous, ironically forcing prices to go up due to a spike in demand, or is it market manipulation and some tycoon has seized the market for their own financial gain, or maybe it’s a change to the core game mechanics coming soon?

CONCLUSION: What goes up must come down. If you have these get while the gettin’s good, SELL SELL SELL, THESE ARE THE BEST PRICES WE HAVE SEEN ALL YEAR!
