I copy this in here also:
I just bought Excalibur, although I have every equipment from it that I could use and the first shields are leaving my camp already. But pure nostalgica made me do it - and to have a look if they changed something… AND get the double Normandy clearance bonus for once 😄
Edit: The strong equipment is still there. They didn’t (dare) reduce that.
So no equipment value reduction. 👍
