If you can beat you face on the keyboard , you can do infected Space. It really is the bottom of the barrel of Borg PvEs.

This was long before Fleet Gear or Rep Grind. STF gear meant having to do all the STF's, not just Infected, to get full sets, with varying timing on when you'd be the lucky drop.

as for passives-they didn't even EXIST...and only because Cryptic was being embarassed did they lock shuttles out of it.

Ahh the Good old days.

I have seen someone force 3k DPS out of a Tier 1 ship, which means they're officially Good Enough for all STO content now.

Same reason for the tricobalt nerf. Someone posted a video of a gateway being one-shotted through its heals. 2-3 weeks later, tricobalt damage was halved and crit variance reduced.

But recording game problems is a very consistent way of getting Cryptic to fix them.

Well they revamped the game so that you always have a shuttle and starship ready. Shuttles are for shuttle missions, ships are for... everything else. You no longer need to manually switch to a shuttle to do a shuttle mission. But that does kinda lock you out of doing regular missions in them.

Yeah, why? Player feedback.... related to the debut of Operation Gamma. People hated having to manually switch to a shuttle to do the mission.
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
