I just purchased an extra mercenary slot from the DB store. I immediately checked the Manage Mercenaries switch window and there was a new empty slot present. I claimed a contract of the Jann and triggered it then went to buy a new mercenary.from the mercenary liaison. When I tried to buy the mercenary I got a message saying I had no available slots. I checked the switch window and my new slot had gone. I checked my DB cash balance and the 900 DB purchase price has been taken.
