# 1 STF Changes
10-19-2012, 04:49 PM
Not sure if this has been raised before but I'm going to raise it here.

I completed an Infected Space Elite (with optional) only to get Omega Marks and 1 elite mark, what happened to the loot box at the end? I know sometimes it contained junk but sometimes it had a nice weapon or console.

It would be a real shame if this was a permanent change.

Wait, we have to do all that work for 1 Mark?


It really isn't worth playing STO anymore, it just isn't.

A bunch of regular Omega Marks (I think ~20-25, I don't remember exactly) and 1 Elite mark.

I just checked and the elite STF's are currently rewarding 3x less marks than they should.

Infected Space Elite is currently awarding 20 Omega Marks without the bonus, on the next push it will award 60 Omega Marks per run.

It will still give 1 elite mark.

This doesn't speak to the OP's question about the loot bag at the end. is it just Marks now and no more random lot? yeah, some of it was lame, but there's also some good stuff in there as well. Are you removing that feature as well?

Nope, you get what squishkin said. The 1 elite mark is required to buy the Mk12 Elite gear, although I have no idea how many one needs to buy a set piece...

The current plan is 5 per piece of Mk XII gear.

Doesn't this really defeat the whole purpose of having a reputation system with gear unlocks at all? I thought we were going to be placed in a position where, because of the reputation system, you wouldn't have to run the things you didn't want; you'd just have to gather sufficient marks to buy it. That also handily deals with the issue that we used to have with not needing rare salvage once you'd already got enough prototype.

Except...you seem to have placed us back in basically the same position now. It's not just one set of marks and then you buy what you want, it's "one set of marks and you buy what you want except if you want these special things in which case you have to get another set of marks", which is basically where we were in the first place.
