I see more people queue'in up for space elites way more than ground and I think this is the reason why.
Because for ground you actually need a balanced team(for the most part.. an all tac team can still breeze through a ground mission if done right).. so a engineer who can drop generators, a science with medical kit, and tacticals actually focusing fire while using overwatch to help the team while killing stuff will make even ground elites quite pleasant... with a little luck even possible with random groups in which I've had infected elite ground runs where no one has died because everyone did what they are supposed to within a team.
If it's done right with that type of balanced team, those heals and extra damage resistances you find those elite drones still hurt a lot when they critical but not 1 shot crits. Get an unblanaced team but they know what they're doing you'll make it quite alright (probably will die at some point though with no extra resistances from the 3 different careers). Get a bad team where people think the way to fight the borg is to skip around like they had 10 gallons of coffee with 2 massive sugar cubes expecting their armor and shields to take it all and survive.. well is going to be hard and frustrating with 1 shot criticals left and right.
