I really miss it, now you end a STF and you get a pop up saying "you have omega rewards" but i really miss the little surprise of "what am i going to get, will it be that prototype i am missing" feeling just before you pick it up
I sure don't miss it, I don't miss carrying a really bad player through an STF and he gets the prototype tech and the ones who did all the work get shafted. I don't miss looking at the loot bag and seeing crap drops and no tech and wondering how many more I have to go before I get something.
While I enjoy the fact that earning the advanced STF gear can now be reasonably accomplished, can even have a time frame set to it, I do mourn the loss of the loot bags at the end of the STFs. Some of my better minor gear, like consoles, came from these drops.
