More money, more prizes. That's the name of the game.
The next step for Star Wars this week is the prize round. They want more items (which being Star Wars, there are no +1 blasters). Their ship already suits them very well for what they're doing (anything bigger would get them in trouble). And armor is pretty worthless in Saga Edition.
What's the solution? Play Smash TV. Who needs another years worth of meat? Who knows, but you just won another.
The moral of the story is that at some point when you beg for loot in a game that loot is the least important thing, you will get more crap than you need or can use. Especially when all combat is ship based, a personal fire arm is almost worthless.
