I suspect that what may have happened is not so much that the Borg have changed, or even the players, but maybe the equipment.

I would be curious to know how much this has affected ground combat; furthermore i would also be curious to know what the actual load-outs of those who believe the Borg are stronger are.

I think they're a bit harder myself, and my ships of choice are the Regent and Odyssey on a tactical and engineering officer. Thus far I have noticed they seem to beat down my shields a bit easier and because of this can chew away at the delicious starship center a bit more easily than before recent patches. On my engineer I ran the Borg set plus MACO shield, and on my tactical I ran the Borg deflector, Borg engine, and MACO shield, so I'm wondering if there's a connection - both seem to be having a harder time of things so I don't think it's the loss of the shield regen, but it might be a reduction in how the parts/set bonuses that ARE there work.
