I started a few days after launch and played for some time. I cannot remember exactly when I walked away but I remember getting an all female crew and tank rentals had recently came out. Decided to update and take a look but holy hell there is so much more now. I got a bunch of crap for 11 years, there is like a dozen different currencies, and did I see equipment has upgrades? I basically logged in, found where I could spend bonds at, bought a T8 I wanted back when I was playing and logged out.
It does not look nearly as simple as it used to be.
