I'm going to go ahead and close this thread down now before it catches on literal fire, which would be bad for our servers.
On the topic at hand:
STFs are meant to be
difficult. It takes a full, dedicated, team of people working together in order to defeat one of these scenarios, and that's how we intend for them to be. Just like some people like solo content, and other people like to casually group with friends, or random people they've just met, some people want content that is incredibly challenging, and nigh on impossible without a very strong group of people working together.
We feel that players who can complete such difficult missions deserve a suitable reward. We also understand that other players will want similar rewards for doing other types of content.
We've just introduced item sets into STO, I assure you, we are not done making them yet. Currently there is a set available for people who do STFs, and another for those who work at crafting. This means that everyone should be able to earn one of the two sets.
However, if you want the Borg set, you're going to need to do the STFs. Just like if you want the Aegis set, you're going to need to do some crafting.
Both of these sets are available to everyone in-game. You all have the opportunity to earn them.
That's really all there is to this argument.
