Problem there is that it doesn't.

People don't want to have run (potentially) 140 Normal STFs to get the Veteran Gear so that they might have to (potentially) run hundreds more to get the Elite Gear. Since you can only get the Elite Gear in Elite STFs... well, guess what every lazy person who shouldn't be doing Elites STFs who happens to want that gear is going to queue for?

If Cryptic wants to deter people from playing Elite STFs they need to make the Mk XII gear available through Normal STFs at a lower drop rate, or put XIIs in the store for EDCs (60-80 a piece). Nothing else ever is going to work so long as it's mandated that you run Elites to get the gear. Trying any other deterrent is a fool's gambit that even a blind man should be able to recognize...
