As we all know, the Children's Toys doff chain has been nerfed to hell. Since a patch around 2 and a half months ago, I haven't got a single purple console. I run 5 purple engineers with 1 crit trait each and for about a year I used to get at least 2 purple consoles for every 9 missions I started... and plenty of valuable purple consoles that made doing the missions worth the while and resources.

Sadly I have had to stop doing this chain because it's become useless, and is doing nothing but bleeding resources. To the devs, please put the drop tables back to the way they were, energy credits are a big part of the enjoyment of this game, and without a way to earn great quantities of them, like this doff chain, it really hurts the game for the players that rely on it.

Also want to ask the devs to start adding all the changes they make to the release notes. I'm getting sick and tired of things being changed/nerfed without any mention of it being in the patch notes, as if we're not going to notice it just because it's not listed. Please stop insulting our intelligence. Thank you.

Umm, no dude.

While it was not amazing, with my doffs the drops were good. Some of the purple drops were crap, and some were excellent and this was consistent for around a year since I started doing these missions, then around Season 6 it all stopped. I have not had a single purple drop since, not even a crap purple console, NO PURPLES. It's broken, and needs to be fixed.

Guys, keep in mind this is a fix request, not a pop in and try to troll the thread starter thread. If you can't do math, and you don't fully understand what's going on here, don't bother posting.

No, nothing was changed. The reward table is exactly the same as it has always been. You've just been unlucky.

It has indeed been changed. If it hadn't I wouldn't have had consistent drops for around a year, only to have it suddenly stop on a dime and have nothing purple at all since that patch. It doesn't work like that bud.

While there has been some questions about the RNG being "sticky", I note that I've gotten several purples in the time frame you specified. So there is no stealth nerf to Children's Toys; beyond all the consoles you get being made obsolete by the fleet holdings.

This is a game, people who play a Star Trek game want to be the Captain. While the justification for it in game may be weak, who cares? You get to fly your own ship.

Yes, yes it does. That's exactly how it works sometimes.

Especially when the RNG hates you.

Liiiiittle late to be worrying about this chain anyways. Fleet sci, fleet eng, and fleet tac consoles, really no point to this mission anymore.

Bad luck on your side doesn't mean an assignment is broken. For each person having bad luck in that time period, there are those who have gotten 5 purple mkXII tac consoles in a row.

The only real "nerf" this assignment has seen was the introduction of cheap fleet consoles, which has ruined the prices for purple mk.XII engineering or sci consoles and which will do the same to tac consoles once fleets have finished their new holdings...
