Those of you wishing for a credit wipe should remember one simple fact: A single tow can carry over 700 million credits' worth of equipment.

1 tow has 500 units of cargo.
1 Instigator costs approximately 4.3 million credits.
166 Instigators will fit in 500 units of cargo.
166*4300000 = 713,800,000 = 713.8 mil
One lvl 30+ pilot can preserve over 700 mil from being removed by a credit wipe.

700 mil doesn't seem like a lot now, but it's still enough to seriously overinflate the economy. And remember that some pilots are already paying for two, three, or four accounts, each of which could hold another 700 mil. I'm sure there would be a lot of powerlevelling if we found out a credit wipe was actually being considered.

hmm I have to agree with him, I've got access to 6 Tows atm, for a total possible hoarding of about 4.2 billion credits.
