The Vault (Needs an STF level Dilithium Reward)

I had fun doing it a couple of times.

I had considered farming the data chips for the set until player feedback determined the set to be worthless when compared to the very few cookie cutter sets everyone uses.

I am an avid elite STF player. I have done hundreds of them over the last few months. It meets my need for the daily dilithium grind and a few of them are actually fun due to the team aspect of them despite the boring repitition.

The Vault as it stands is the closest thing to a brand new STF we have had in a very long time and I would enjoy doing it as part of my Dilithium Grind, but alas you get none for it.

"The Vault" for me will be one of those missions I simply will not bother with as it stands.

The sad part is it could have been launched and billed as a new STF had it been given the same rewards/cooldown format as the other STF's and it would have satisfied one of the most voiced complaints I have heard from players regarding the lack of new content being added.

Why waste developer resources on content only worth playing a few times when it could easily be formatted to provide that content with an incentive to repeat it to add some variety to the very little content we actually do grind with?

Its a great mission design, but it simply fails in the current format with regards to enticing players to keep playing it.
