I haven't run it on normal today, but doubt results will be any different from my past disappointments.
I won't bother starting a thread in "bugs" just yet since Cryptic has yet to patch anything other than stability. When they do we'll see if it makes any difference. Perhaps someone has already mentioned this issue in the bugs forum.
Anyone running the mission please continue to drop your feedback here if you like.
I used to have f/x, till my video card took a S9 to the knee...
Irregardless of this issue. The general space loot drop rate since LoR was released has dropped to 40% of what it was. Before LoR any space battle you did you would get at least 1 of any thing to drop...now you can go 3 battles and nothing at all.
The drop rate of the Core it's self was bad before LoR as I would run this every day. Since I got back to STO this month, not a single one dropped. The last time I was on..I had gotten enough to run that one mission requiring these 4 times.
