I am just wondering once you have the complete MACO or OMEGA set, what will you do then?

I simply no longer do STFs, maybe once or twice a week to help fleet mates get their Mk XI sets, nobody I know now grinds for the Mk XII sets, they have been doing it so long they understand the futility of it all and have decided that the sacrifice of hundreds of hours of their lives to wear a shiny helmet is not an equitable trade.
+1
You're right.

The loot system is total trash, as far as I'm concerned. Purely RNG. Doesn't matter how many times you've done it, or how good you've gotten at it--nothing you do matters because the game's RNG is the only determining factor; and this is why the system is total trash.

Hell, I don't even understand why the elite end-game content even rewards blue (rare) quality items at all. End-game content ought to only reward end-game loot; this is how virtually all other MMOs work. If the end-game content needs to be more difficult to justify this, fine, make it more difficult, but make the rewards worthy of completing the end-game content. This shouldn't be too much to ask.

Randomness has its place in moderation, there's always going to be some degree of randomness when dealing with programmed/scripted PvE; but for nothing but RNG to comprise the entirety of the equation is a poorly derived concept. There must always be an end in sight.

I log on to my Fed character 1 time this week, do 1 elite STF, get a prototype tech. On my KDF, I log on daily, do elite STF after elite STF for several hours straight, and get jack--just a bunch of crap that I end up throwing on the Exchange, usually no one item worth more than 40k EC. EDCs that are no longer of any real value, rare salvage/tech that I don't need for anything, more stockpiling of dilithium that I can't convert fast enough. It's mind-numbing and frankly, with each elite STF + optional I complete every day with absolutely no progress made, it becomes that much more difficult to log in.

I don't know if the OPs approach is the way to go or not, but most certainly something needs to change. This has to be one of the most unrewarding, and blatantly greedy MMOs I've every played; right up there with SWG post-NGE when they implemented their lovely TCG. That turned out well for them... lol.

I want to disagree with this. Cure Space Elite and Infected Ground Elite are insanity, and the changes Gozer made to Khitomer Ground the last time he poked at the STFs has made nabbing the optional in Elite problematic... but, it would at least give a discernible goal to work towards.

Or, YET ANOTHER SOLUTION:

Just put the proto tech in the optional drops with at least 50% rate. As it currently stands, succeeding in getting the optional objective complete is pointless unless you need the accolade.

Whatever they do will be based on principles learned from rat mazes, shock testing, and a Beautiful Mind.

Cheese anyone?

I would not mind getting MK XII gear by upgrading MK XI with (x) amount of proto tech. That way at least I feel i am grinding to something.

I'd like to add the suggestion of crafting to your input. MKXII Armor could cost (X) proto salvage + (Y) EDC's + (Z) Rare Tech.
