STF rare and prototype drop rate?
 
The December 15th notes state this:

Slightly increased Borg tech drop rate on all STFs.

Yet, in the last 20 games, I have yet to see either a rare borg or prototype borg anything. Did the dev's forget a "minus" sign somewhere?

Please investigate.

UPDATE: the Klingon Defense Silver Star accolade says I have played 50/75 STFs and only received one prototype drop. Are there any formulas published out there on this stuff? Is it truly random or does something in the game increase your likelihook of acquiring rare or prototype borg stuff?

They do seem a little more common but not by much. I think before the patch I received 2 uncommon drops and since I've received 2 rare drops and an uncommon drop, all in that should cover about 300 STFs across 4 characters, approximately 150 before and after the patch. It's still a terrible drop rate but I've just banked the tech to see what the buff they're giving the new sets turns out as currently my retro Borg gear is superior in most ways when the set bonus is applied.

I to prefer the bonuses that I get from the old Borg set parts.

ATM there’s nothing that the new sets offer that seems more useful than old Borg set.

I’m only using 3 of the Old Borg set parts has the shield was just too weak to be useful on my Vo’Quv.

I’m currently using the Mk X Honor Guard Shield that has the same stats has the Old Covariant Cap x3 shield with a few extras.

I was able to get the Honor guard shield with an uncommon Borg Shield Tech drop.

On a side note:

Does anyone else feel that there’s just not enough difference between the stats on Mk X, Mk XI and Mk XII gear?

Higher levels should add more bonuses and a lot more over all power.

I'll agree with that. I ground out the Mk X and Mk XI Honour Guard and MACO space sets on my KDF alt and after comparing the sets I went with the Mk X sets for my Fed alts as it just wasn't worth grinding out the Mk X for them.

The Honour Guard shield is an amazing shield, has some very nice bonus's attached to it (I especially like the defence bonus with my Hegh'ta) and the passive buff to stealth is also nice. TBH I find the Honour Guard to be my preferred new set, the Omega and MACO sets left me underwhelmed, especially the 3 piece set bonus.
