You learn nothing from it. Everything people do in Normal is utterly wrong, wrong, wrong. You don't learn to ride a bike by practicing on tricycles.
Then I'm sorry for all those people you ended up with trying new builds (or even learning STFs).

You'll still be much more likely to get the optional in normals using some of the "elite" methods. If a couple optionals were required (on a whole account at once), it might push more people to find the additional info, to find a dedicated channel. And the more people do that, the more players are available for an enjoyable ride.

The whole purpose of that would be to push more players to learn (as many people need to be pushed to learn).
TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix, T'vritha, To Vrax: Bring in the Allegiance class
Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia, Tia Vex, Toi'Virth: Add Tier 6 KDF Carrier and Raider.
Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var, T'Vira, To'Vrak: Give us Asylums for Romulans

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!
