When do all the story missions get unlock so they reward Romulan and Omega Marks?

I am not really interested in grinding the old stfs because im fed up with them, and I do not want to test the newer stf and other team missions as I do not want to get bored with them before they go live!

It means the STF stores will no longer sell the 'Standard Issue' weapons, which were normal except for a [Borg] proc or bonus damage.

Not sure on what will happen with existing [Borg] weapons, but they will definitely not disappear, and nothing should happen to your MACO, Omega, and Honor Guard weapons. Perhaps the [Borg] weapons will become new anti-borg weapons, but they will probably remain as-is, and any new ones you purchase will be the new Anti-Borg versions.

In the new system, the number of STF runs needed to get that last piece of gear is reduced down to a definite cost that has a finite number of STF runs to obtain which is 60% less than what it would have been previously in the random odds table.

Sure you might get lucky and get the last piece of gear you need in the next two months, but the odds are against you in the current reward table. You are more likely to get the last piece of gear you need by leveling up the Rep system than leaving it to chance.
I love how you ignored every other part of my post... to correct me on something that may or may not be true.

You know what could have fixed the issue of low drop rate? Raising the drop rate... that would have fixed it... and guess what... you wouldnt be shafting anyone with partial sets.... oh, but I guess you wouldnt be able to monetize the system with dilithium...

OK, how about you at least make then account and not character locked.

I know this is not a big issue but what is happening to the Borg Duty officers that you could purchase with Edc's?

The final numbers which are being worked out calculate the average player completing the Omega Fleet Rep system around 2 months, which does require a time investment, but is a much better timeframe than "maybe someday you'll get the gear" which is what it was under the random loot drop system. Now you'll alway see how close you are to getting the gear and it won't take a year (like it has for some players.

2 months to bloody months. of forced time spent forced play time.

thats not better than the current way sadly.

we allready calculated it to be 23.5 days or 552 hours.

thats just wrong.

i could have agreed to 1 week or less but 2 months. grats you killed the game.

There will be Omega projects that generate Dilithium similar to how you could trade items in for Dilithium. I don't have specifics or final numbers on what the inputs/outputs of that project are yet.

All existing gear you've purchased via STFs will remain on your character. The Omega set is not going away at all. There are some slight changes happening to the Borg Space set in that you only will need 3 set pieces to get all 4 of the set bonuses, and a second additional set (2 weapons and a console) is being introduced that uses the console that is being taken out of the original set (but the bonus still remains). So the only change is that the set is getting better. Again - these changes will be available on Tribble soon for those that want to see it in action.
Mr Stahl I put it to you

WILL YOU DO THE HONOURABLE AND DECENT THING OF RUNNING A CHECK ON THE NUMBER OF STFS THAT ALL PLAYERS HAVE RUN AND COMPENSATING THEM WITH A HEAD START IN THE NEW REP SYSTEM

personally I think its the decent and right thing to do do you not agree ? some of us players who have supported this game have run in excess of thousands of STF runs

Very well, those 2 pieces of info are good news. I have to admit that. Now please make those "Omega projects that generate Dilithium" abundant and as cheap as possible.

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!

Dilithium, Fleet Marks, Omega Marks, and Romulan Marks will be available from a wide variety of missions once Season 7 launches.

Generally speaking
if it is missions against the Borg, it will reward Omega Marks.

If it is missions involving New Romulus or the new Sector it will reward Omega Marks

All Fleet Actions that previously rewarded Gear only, will now reward Gear and Dilithium at all scores with a special 2x Dilithium bonus for coming in Gold in Fleet Actions.

Fleet Marks will be available from more PVE Queue missions.

Dilithium Ore will be available from more missions and via the Reputation system
