Everything in this game is getting rediculously easy. Borg gear will soon even be easier to get.
Crafting is a joke. The particles you need now its just rediculous.
Fleet actions? Can be Solo'ed. (Tanking your way against 30 Gorn ships or what)
Seriously Cryptic, You might do this for the newbies so that they stop complaining, but you also make people complain who like/need a challenge.
Why have I stopped playing PvE a long while ago? Just because if this reason. The only challenge you still get is by PvPing against real world players.
I know, I said newbies. And yes i was a newbie myself when I started this game, even when I finally got to Vice Admiral I was still a relative newbie. Did i want everything to be easy at the time? No. Absolutely not. Even then I wanted a game to be challenging. Cryptic, you ruin it for all of us just because of some 10% of the newbies complain about difficulty in different aspects of the game.
Thanks ALOT. Oh wait Ive got a great idea. It just came up to me.
Put the Borg gear in the C-store, this way people dont even have to do any trouble for any STF, and you've got another part of the game for sale.
Im not disagreeing with anything you've posted. Cryptic's set the bar so low that keybind / autofire is all it takes to win in pve, at any level.
Cryptic, always a measure of excellence
This is why PvE'ers cry and whine when they get wasted in PvP. So cryptic will nerf some skill to satisfy the lowest common denominator player. I would still like to know how to people who win cheat or hack?
The other day I attempted my first Romulan encounter on my LtCom in some obscure nebula. After dying about dozen times I finally realized I can only take on the 2 Bird-of-Prey groups (Not the one with 3) and everything else including the fighters obliterates me. It took me quite a while to find enough of the birds to get 8 squadrons in (Especially with jumping into pvp match to discover i lost progress when I got out), so I wouldn't say that the content is too easy, just not all of it balanced. I also received a generous 850 skill points for those 8 squadrons, only reason I kept at it.
I just did the Kern system assault on my now Captain 8 (he leveled during the mission). 4 Starfleet ships guarding 5 Satellites. Every ship was a Battleship. 2 Noble-class, 1 Sovereign-class, and the typical Typhoon.
4 Battleships. 4 ships qualified to be level bosses.
Why was it so EASY?
I'm serious. Never did my shields drop below 80%. I've done the Pi Canis Sorties too many times. I've done the Deferi dailies so many times, that yesterday I vaporized a Chel Gret Cruiser and took basically no damage, because it took me less than 5 seconds to demolish him (This guy was my level, I was at Outpost 3). I batter down battleships, sear science vessels, and escort escorts to Gre'Thor. The Breen fall so pitifully easily too me, that I've gotten BORED tanking a Chel Gret and 3 Plesh Brek Frigates in the Kelvani Belt.
Cryptic, I implore you. Please, for the love of the Prophets, Agosoria, Q, and whatever OTHER Star Trek diety you can think of, find some spare time to engineer something more for the KDF to level on. There's a reason that only 18% of STO is in the KDF. We need CONTENT! Even if it's some extra story meat about the War (I plotted a really nice series where the KDF tried to ally with the Terran Empire, and another where they started pushing back into Romulan areas to outflank the Federation), it would be SOMETHING. Give us patrols in the sector blocks you gave us in S4. Something, please!
Content is FOOD, and we are STARVING! There's FAMINE on Qo'Nos! Please, HELP US (or, in Klingon, "bel QaH maH")!
