# 1 Elite STFs Bravo !
11-25-2012, 09:33 PM
First off let me say what a great job season 7
Is I'n regards as to the improved quality of the
Elite STFs

Minor bugs with high crits and invisible torpedoes
You need to correct this

The Borg are starting to fight back wonderful !

Having enemies not firing back was breaking immersion
For me badly it great to have a enemy that fights
Back.
Minor adjustments are still needed

Spawning ships at cure should come out fighting if a player is
I'n sensor range and detected

The nanites generators top tier need to be beside the cubes and the lower
Tier I'n the old tiers place underneath

Borg tractor beam and cutting beams needs it's own ai that targets
Closest enemy. The carrier needs double resists and gravity 3 well plus
Tykens rift 3. The fighter spawns need triple hitpoints and a faster
Spawn
The carrier needs beam arrays and beam overload 3 with faw 3

Infected elite
The gate needs to spawn turrets at blind spots on sides and bottom
The small gate cubes need triple hitpoints

Khitomere looks pretty good as is

Add 1 neural processor and 500 dilithium
To each elite STF

Copy over season 6 elite rename as veteran with
Current rewards

Good job on the stfs !

Each elite stfs gives 1 neural borg processor and 960 dilithium not 500.I dont see anything good about this as it has no reward or reason to play it at all other than pew pew 15 minutes than log off .

I suggested they

Add 1 neural processor
And 500 Dilithium

That would raise a elite STF too

1460 dilithium
2 neural processors

The current reward would become the vet reward

I think he means add another BNP and another 500 dilithium.
You know...throw in Purple quality loot too and I would accept the current ESTF gameplay.
Even with the insta-invisi-kills and 0 funfactor.
I do NOT want to use ARC to play STO

Purple quality loot would be a bad idea because it would be too easy to farm and purple stuffs should be very rare ,but a unique reward would be welcome because it would give players a reason to play each stfs like pre s7.
When I say unique reward I mean something either cosmetic (borgfied parts for your suit ...you dont always have to get gear thats better than the one before ...people like to have unique visuals and make their toon as much as possible unique ) or something thats collectible (people like to collect stuffs) .They would only have to use the same strategy used in lockboxes.

Even dilithium drops would make them more interesting because people would start playing them to hunt for that big lump on dilithium.

They have to fool people think they will get a big shinny from each stf or mission in game and be sure people will play each mission in that pve menu one by one in order just to get that "shinny".For that they only need abit of imagination to create some uniqe rare stuffs.

As long as the loot is identical in each STF, there is no reason to try any of the others. While I am happy to see them fighting back, I'm not particularly pleased with the kind of power the Borg have. In Season 6, I could tank a Borg cube the entire STF. Not so in S7. Usually all my heals are in cooldown at any given time. It's more like a job than a game. It's not a challenge to kill the Borg, it's a challenge to simply not be destroyed.

I thought maybe it was technique and I worked on that all this week, but I'm convinced the STF's have been over-fixed and with as much trouble as it is to complete one, I'll just pick the easiest one and do that and not bother with the others.

I can dig it if it's a plausible challenge, but for all but the very best of the best (I'm not one of those) it is not a plausible challenge and the reward payout simply isn't worth the aggravation.

I would hate to see it simplified to the point someone could solo it -- it needs to be a team game, but it's just not fun the way it is.
