# 1 STF sets?
01-17-2012, 11:31 AM
I just saw the new Free to Play trailer and, correct me if I'm wrong, I saw a group in the video all wearing a full set of Omega Force armor; which made me think...

Has anyone seen, or gotten, a complete set of any of the new armor sets form the STFs? The final set, mark XII I mean.

Talk about the Devs playing out a Tantalus scenario, dangling something we all want just out of reach.
Just wondering if it is still an impossible dream…

I believe the images in the trailer were actually the space suits people can wear during the next FE.

I saw those ones (they do look a lot like the MACO sets), I was referring to the group of officers that were looking at a borgish facility in a alpine landscape. I hope the ones I saw are not Omega Force, and instead a comparable (easily attainable) counterpart!

the full MACO set comes with a helmet, wrist gadgets, and maybe 1 or 2 other things. someone posted the entire mk xii set somewhere on here, but dont expect to see a lot of people with the mk xii set- the drops are what amounts to a myth. the mk xi sets are similar with the biggest difference being the lack of a helmet. you will see many people with those on. mk x gets no visuals from my understanding.

Yeah I know about the differences in sets, I was just hoping that they had made them easier to get with free to play.

nope, its still a grind fest for mk xi and luck of the draw for mk xii. however, we ran 3 elites last nite and in each one someone got something- we got 1 prototype tech drops and 2 prototype salvage. so maybe they upped the drop rate recently?

I am not certain what the drop rates are for the prototype tech, but it seems to be no greater than 1% and no less than 0.1%.

That means that you have to play on average at least 300 elite STFs to get one set.

Ouch, that is certain death for a casual gamer like me, I don't focus on DPS, or what have you, and I do't want to hold other groups back by joining an elite mission, that leaves me up a creek without a paddle.

All casual gamers that is.

The biggest complaint Elite STFers seem to have isn't "players who don't have perfectly optimized builds" it's "players who don't listen to directions and fail to bring components/regenerators/remodulators." If you can pass those two requirements you should be fine.

Personally, I just don't care enough, so I don't bother.

I don't know about that. Normal STFs is more like "follow directions and bring a remod". Elite STFs are an exercise in masochism if you don't have a powerful loadout. For example you severely hamper the efforts of your team if you don't bring a high DPS ship to a space STF, simply because they are so DPS dependent that they almost rule out anything but escorts.

OT but does anyone think the Omega Force armor/set looks ridiculously out of place for Star Trek? I mean he's got walkie talkies with an antenna on his shoulder! I've never seen a trek device with an antenna. And clips of ammo? Please. It looks like the Omega force suit belongs in Halo and not in Star Trek. The MACO armor looks much more IP appropriate.
