Possible that the ground loot drops were stripped from STFs at the same time as the space loot? I don't do ground STFs very often, so I wouldn't know if S7 changed anything there.
No. I just did Into The Hive Elite today with some friends and all of the loot mentioned above was droping like crazy - as always during ground STFs, I might add. Nothing has changed in this regard in S7 from what I can tell, that's why I'm finding these patch notes a bit confusing.
Sooo dark mistress of the foundry, what prevents players to place some captain level enemies in a mission with a couple dozen allies around that 'assist' with the kill so you can rake in some shiny purple itemz?
I'm not fluent with the Foundry but that 'feature' came to mind when reading the patchnotes.
If you set up a mission like this all the NPCs you spawn will get most of the kills instead of you and you wont get any loot for any kill attributed to them.
Rex, oh sunshine of the foundry (*smile*), can you also do that for space mubs, not just for ground mubs? ^^ I mean can space enemies also drop a few large shield batteries and stuff ADDITIONALLY to normal drups? That would be really cute.
Also, don't you mean just Captains and Dreadnaughties? Because if you add battleships, Commanders on ground should also count. ^^ I think Captains and Dreadnoughts should be enuff though, as there are way too many battleships and Commanders around in normal maps and then blue or purrple loot might just get too common.
PS: Could you up sum mubs in Fleet Actions or Defurry Salvage Operations to Level 54 like in Ker'rat so they have a slight chance of drupping MK XII stuff, whatever rarity doesn't really matter.
PPS: And hey, is it possible to make space mubs in the foundry non-scalable? So that you could add a nice epic boss battle with a Dreadnaughty against the player and scripted helping ships? Of course the player would have to add assisting ships or he could just leave them out for a real challenge. A "single enemy captain" mub, also for ground in a 1 vs 1 battle (without away team) would be sumfin I really appreciate.

You have many bugs in game after season 7 and your priority is working on change loot tables?
Maybe you should focus more on bugs like:
repair and make available private queues (starbase defense with only own fleet members it is not possible, mine trap too, fed + kdf team is not posible for team queue)
kicking players out from fleet actions 10second after join it
