    1. I can only concur, and further wonder WTF SEGA was smoking when they set up the original iteration.

    2. This improvement to the recycle shop is LONG overdue; now imo they could go 2 steps further. I notice how they have a window for how many of an item, say 10* and 11* weapons, your trading for an excube. What they can do is leave one excube listed in the recycle shop, then when selected have a window counting how many 10* weps, and a window counting how many 11* weps your willing to trade for excubes. Then you can have another one for class cubes for those hoarding class cubes they dont know what to do with. I’ve been ASKING for these improvements on exchange systems.
