That's still only one PvE mission in the game that's actually challenging to a good player with high end gear, though. And its not just STFs either, the Defera Hards originally designed for 5 players can be done by 3 players without difficulty.

They need to completely retool end level PvE in this game, or introduce a lot of new stuff. Old style STFs wouldn't provide the be all and end all in this respect, but I wouldn't mind them back in the game.

And 3 hours? Old STFs only took 3 hours if you made a lot of mistakes, or if your team deliberately took a slow, methodical approach.

They could be done 1:30 to 2 hours. And that's without Omega Sets, Integral Remods, Fleet Weapons, Fleet Ships, Lockbox ships, Fleet & Assignment Buffs etc. etc. that all exist now. Old STFs in under an hour would be achievable with the current gear in the game.
