1: Drop Percentages

30 stf normal runs .... 0 rare techs


2: Mechanics

INFECTED SPACE
optional reward would be much better if the activation for a rooms borg to to start assimilating was clearly marked or set as the door way. Its far too easy for a stray party member to set it off early

CURE SPACE
Armek.
Being locked in with him is fine however using combinations of some meleeing and some at range doesnt work.
Instead just all get point blank and out damage him. Why cant we have tactics to beat him not just who has the biggest gun?!

KA SPACE/INFECTED SPACE
The gates and the tac cubes are still, if not even more than they used to throw critical after critical..hell i would love to have the & crit chance they have.
Being hit multiple times for 103K+ is a tad off putting. and if your in an escort..its insta kill

The problem with insta kill.....you cant setup your ship for it, you cant work around it with tactics.
Luck based games are minigames..not main content.

AND no it wasnt the torps(which insta kill if you dont brace) it was the beams from the gate/tac that was doing this.

I agree.

Since season 5 I only got 1; count them ONE rare borg salvage.

I did KA Elite with my fleet. Not a one got anything for MK XII gear.

Yes, the tactical cubes are putting out a lot of damage. Beams regularly hit my cruiser for 30k-40k, and the torps, as I've posted before, hit a high of 350,000 (it was a regular torpedo, not a heavy one), and I had emergency power to shields 3 up at the time, with full shields and hull.

You can't sell tactics on the C-Store.

I've run about 12 STF's this weekend so far and I've gotten four rare Borg tech. Usually running The Cure space on normal as that's really easy to do and has a simple bonus objective.

In every case the bonus objective is where I got my Rare tech drop.

It's pointless to do the elite space missions since the difficulty makes the bonus adjectives much harder and the mission take twice as long (at least). IMO, the extra borg chip you get for Elite isn't worth the extra time taken vice doing the normal version really quick.


Now, does anyone know how the heck we're supposed to get "Prototype Borg tech" drops? I see the best gear only takes that for payment. Is it a purple drop? Anyone got it yet?

9 normal space STFs done myself with 1 ship token drop (deflector) ,4 rare borg tech drops and 9 data chips along with 1 ground normal STF with only 1 data chip. The drop rate for the new gear is just way to low going by my own experience and from what other players and fleet members have said

I wish I had your "low" drop rate...

I have been constantly running the STF's this W/E and i have not got any of the drops, lost count how many i have ran through...........

There are lots of problems with STO in this build, let me explain.

Cryptic you have made it way to easy to level up , FTP crowd will rip through this within a week, and yet you added Boosters......

They will hit end game and the flaming will start up once more, they have this new end game Borg loot etc to do but you must get them sorted asap.

There needs to be alot more STF's and i mean alot, running same few hundreds of times is tedious beyond belief, ive ran them alot now but i cant stomach anymore so allready i am bored.

The balance between Space and Ground is a complete Joke, who made and designed these things?

Why would anyone run a Ground one, that takes 3times as long as a quick Space one for the same reward?

As for Elite mode, your a game company yes? come on sort it out!, Grinding is to be expected , but there is alot of gear there to get and they cost a fortune and way too many runs, made especially bad as there are only a handful of STF's (most are made pretty terrible too)

This should be roughly how it should be, especially if you want to leave Elite as it stands now.

Normal:
Space - 1 Data
Ground - 3 Data

Elite:
Space - 3 Data
Ground - 6 Data

UP the drop rates considereably.


Something like that, or you will end up players just doing Normal Space, and they will tire real quick.

Sorry tbh but as it stands now it is a complete Joke. How about changing around who makes these?

When this goes live and FTP crowd join , it is going to be crazy, everyone will be maxed out very quick, and this end game stuff is not fit for it.

to the OP: infected and cure space doesnt happen on the ground....and all cryptic has to do is add a guarantee tech drop from the optionals, sure you all would have to roll for it, but then youd at least have a 1 in 5 chance at it, instead of 1 in unknown number thats too big for anyone to be happy. BUT its not 0 since ive gotten 2 tech drops from just beating infected space(actual space, not ground) and cure, so im just doing KA til i get that...then ill do em all so i can get the MACO set too.
havent seen any drops from the ground missions though. and infected can be rough when NO ONE knows how to do it
