I just took a look at the new system for getting your gear and such from STF's that is on the Tribble server right now, and needless to say I was less than impressed. I have two major issues with this right now:
  1. I have to go buy stuff like Major Regenerators and Large Shield Charges for projects, and I have to replicate things like Shield Generators. This costs a ton of energy credits, which moves my STF experience from a simple "play the mission for a chance to earn the tech drops to buy the rewards" to an annoying "spend as much energy credits as you can to buy the stuff you need to start the projects, and hopefully you'll be able to afford everything you need to earn the rewards you want". I consider this extremely annoying, and it makes me want to avoid doing STF missions since I know that getting the gear is no longer going to be fun.

  2. I can only start two projects, which only total 2800 XP, and they take nearly two days to complete. This means that, no matter how much time I put in to STF missions, it is not possible for me to get the gear I want any faster. I am obviously assuming (and I didn't bother verifying this) that the Omega marks can also be used to actually buy the gear once I get to Tier I, however since it takes more than 3 days to get there and be able to start looking at what I want to put Omega marks into, I don't really enjoy the STF missions.

Personally, I prefer the old system where I may never get my tech drops over this new system. At least I could buy the MK XI MACO/Omega Force/Honor Guard stuff with the Borg Data Chips, so I knew exactly when I'd be able to get them and exactly how much work I was going to have to put in to do it.

BTW: These forums suck pretty bad...
