That's what it says.
So much for flying the new ship in 2 weeks and be admired by all the noobs.. they fly it, too, now.
Right, thank you for calling me a noob.
You know what I mean.
Before yesterday, encountering anyone with this ship would have meant someone to be reckoned with for sure, someone who knows this game in and out.
Even if it was a lifer, he did his time to get experience.
Now you can it within a few days. Leveling up on the same day you fire up the game to cap is unlikely.
Of course there is a lot of grey between that black and white. Nit everyone will be a noon, but not quite a veteran either.
