I've not seen that in the Nomad area, but then you also don't really see comment threads about how awful the game is and how CB management are just carrying out grudge agendas against certain factions and whatnot around here either. At least I haven't seen either here recently, which is one of the reasons I come here. TJC gives Nomads a small boost, mainly by shoring up weak points. Everybody but Tohaa, who don't need it, and CA are going to get a bunch of new toys at some point. I'm not at all sure playing Nomads gives someone an overall advantage, but even if it does, the next 6 months are going to shake everything up anyway.
