Two ways in which the Borg have undeniably been buffed

Coming late to this conversation but this:
2) Borg Plasma DOT magnitudes are being reduced.
is the only major issue I've had with Season 7 STFs - the plasma DoT has been simply
- my Excelsior's previously been able to tank the gates from 100% to zero without going under but the plasma DoT's been wiping me out far too often.
On several occasions I've had 75% hull remaining and full shields then something with the plasma crits and *BOOM!* gone. Been using full MACO Mk XII
for a long time too.
Stuff like the torpedos firing from all angles and the Iso's are of no consequence to my Tac/Excel build - If I hit BFI and PH quick enough I'll live to fight again but the plasma DoT is just plain

Well, what can I say? It exists but in my experience the Borg need to have a shield facing down to pull it off so I don't really consider it a 'one-shot' - possibly with ships less equipped for shield/hull tanking it's a real issue though - all my ships (Tac/Eng/Sci) are specced to be able to tank Borg crits though so it's not a problem for me.
I imagine those that were reliant on the Borg set are suffering from it much more now though.
