What makes you think we haven't run them or have gotten lucky?

I had a full MkXII on 5 toons before the rep change...

Most of my toons earned the 300 STF completed accolade before they finished their sets.

And for the record my main uses the full Borg space set because its better suited for his build. My Fed tact is using full Aegis because its still a great set for escorts.

The old system was a luck of the draw, the new system is a promised path. If you don't buy any gear until T5, you only need to run about 25 STFs for enough marks.
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.

^^This

A lot of folks are whining about the "grind", and in a way it still IS a grind (in the sense that grinding is repetitious activity), but THIS time you're guaranteed to get something when it's done.

I have friends in-game that, like me, have been STO players since BETA and prior to Season 7 have NEVER acquired a single Mk XII STF set item, all because of the luck of the draw system for prototype salvage and tech, due to simple bad luck and people always, ALWAYS voting Need during drops, because trading in Salvage and Tech was part of other people's dilithium farming.

But now they can finally get that stuff, and they know WHEN they can get it, and how soon.

S7 is by no means perfect, but in terms of making STO more playable for the average player, i.e. most of the folks not whining on forums, it's more good than bad.

The STFs scare me. So I've been doing the Defera easy ground missions. (Gonna take a lot of 5 mark missions to get those Tier 1 Mk X engines for 450 New Romulus is so much faster!)



...still wouldn't buy marks from the c-store, though.

You could always do one of the Zone Wides for 15 marks...and then have it not turn in because your inventory is "full".
