On the other hand, if you just mentally had $300 set aside to go buy whatever you wanted, wouldn't you get everything you needed plus have money left?

If you play long enough, and have enough characters, you will eventually come out ahead, but the math says it takes a couple years to break even. They had it all crunched out on the forum somewhere...

Buy a one-month sub, and you get a bunch of the extra character/ship/bank slots. Pay for a few respecs and extra ship/bank slots. Buy half a dozen $20 ships. You're still up a couple hundred dollars. So the extra money comes over having more characters to get the unlocks for, the Veteran rewards, and the zen over time.
Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by man. ~Jack Handey
