Well, to be honest, the retro STFs couldn't be returned to the game the way they were. The enemies are a joke against current available gear.
Then lets add the strategy back a bit. Remember when nodes use to make the drone regenerate at death making them untargetable until they come back at full health. Or we can add back the old bugs that make them harder like when on KA the gates would regen at a stupid rate during the 2 minutes when shield was up for that 2 minutes.
yeah i don't want to waste my time on that old system, i remember it but I quit playing then. When they added this new system I came back. I just hate this fleet garbage and better items in there... I don't want to join a fleet it's just disappointing every time i tried.
