This situation annoys me immensely, I already quit prior to Smuggler's Run due to the fact they didn't follow through with the 200k they promised for anyone that subscribed to their Newsletter before July 4th. Then the trailer came out and I was really excited for the Hunter, and with the 2x I/E sales at the time I had to jump on the chance. I managed to grind 1.1 mil and stopped for the day. The next day I wanted to grind some more, but was greeted with the ever so pleasant message that my account was "adjusted" by -2.7mil. I just about quit then and there, I didn't even have enough money to buy the Hangar I was eyeing.
It really felt like it was a "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me" situation. I felt like an idiot for coming back and wasting time grinding the 2x I/E sales.
