In a distant galaxy the remnants of the human population battle against the Cylons, deceptive cyborgs that look just like the humans.

Yes – +10%. The game has a lot of missions and content that can be enjoyed for free, but many players will want to engage in PVP and it is the battle between the two factions that enables this. Whether in open space or through battle modes, those players that can more easily access Cubits and the gear/consumables they buy will have advantage in PVP, and that’s not always particularly enjoyable for free players.
