I promised myself I wouldn't do this but I just snapped. I've been running STF's from back in the good old days when they we're released. I was happy and sad when you broke them down for the sake of the new comers and the casual community, as more people can now play them and sad since we lost what was a nice storyline and explanation for all us captains getting a chance.
Now I have been happy with the tech loot lotto and was amazed when I got my first armor drop after a month, and then I got an engine and another armor within a week. I was on a roll, but now I'm in a downward freefall, everyone seems to be getting drops on most runs, now I know I'm not alone in this problem but after running each ground STF over 100 times on elite now and seeing people get the sets within a small number of runs it's disheartening.
I know you want to keep the "best" gear in the game to be rare but right now it's essentially unattainable for a large percentage of dedicated players.
The idea that was me and some folks have been throwing around is using the 100 run accolades to unlock a store to buy them. But with the added twist of having to use prototype salvage and edc to craft a tech piece. So you'd have to run elite stfs and not just grind through normals.
Any useful feedback or ideas post them here to try.
What they should do is make that you can trade a number of EDC for example 200 for 1 your choice of prototype borg tech or maybie even more so you can grind but still get something at the end instead of getting nothing
I personally think rare and prototype salvage should be usable in a set amount to get a piece of the mark XII sets. 1, their rare, 2 one only drops in elites. So it's not like everybody is going to grab them constantly, and making it cost 10-15 rare and 2-4 prototype would keep it still a low number. And the best part, it makes the salvage have some value!
