True , but "Content A" has been through at least a dozen difficulty tweaks (at least the STF's have) .
Thing is , ever since S.7 and the reputations & new Doffs -- those tweaks have not been keeping up with the power creep , enabling players to create such STF channels as DPS-5000 , and having the rumored ability to finish 3 space STF's in 15 minutes .

And unlike the Foundry Dilithium "cheat" or the FM "cheat" in NWS , Cryptic is not stepping in and say that "just because a player can do something , does not mean he should" .

Nope .
Things are just fine and dandy as far as what's going on , as long as we keep buying the next wave of power enhancing Doffs (new pack out now ! )
STO will be out of Beta in another 2-4 years ???
... you know after another 3 story arc remasters, crafting revamp, skills revamp, PVP upgrade ...
*note : the 2-4 year guesstimate came out of comparing Cryptic's Dev speed and that of a snail . Sadly the snail won .
