I also have to agree. It used to be that the STFs were special in-game events for many people. In my fleet, we would set aside 1-3 hours (depending on which STF), get a group of fleetmates together, and play through. Even after doing Infected 50 times, we felt like we ACCOMPLISHED something after each STF run. THAT is what I played the STFs for, not to get new gear. It was fun the old way, even if there were frustrating moments in each mission (I refer you back to the accomplishment factor).

Now it's "spend 30 minutes blowing stuff up for tech currency that I don't care about because there's no way I'm doing 120 of these crappy missions." I've done each of the "stf lites" at least once, and I am done. They aren't fun, I don't feel like I've accomplished anything after doing them, and I don't care about what amounts to cosmetic rewards for grinding them up to 120 times.

Cryptic should have at least left the old STFs in place for those of us who preferred them.

*sigh* Oh well...
