I've lost count on how many proto salvage/ shield/ deflector/ engine tech I have picked up.

But I have not seen one proto PSG/ armour/ weapon tech in any ground STF (over 4 toons with 100s of ground runs between them, I have picked up heaps of rares though). Its about time some proto tech dropped for me :/
I drink, I vote, and I PvP!

Same I can not get a ground gear to save my life..I purchased all 3 of my 3 mark Xi's on the ground, not one Mark Xii ground drop, have lost count on all the runs. Plenty of Space Xii and I barely run space.

To me I think they nerfed the drop rates, I guess to pander to hardcore people. I don't think that is wise. I have been having the same problem a month of those STF's and nothing... So its not bad luck, they just nerfed it.
I get 2-3 rare and proto techs a week, and I play 2 STFs a day when I'm not on vacation. Currently I have plenty of free time, and I can tell you it's a lot more. 5 protos this week for roughly 25-30 STFs.

It's not the game, it's just you. Terrible luck.

Don't worry, you'll get something significant sooner or later, just don't give up, and play two stfs a day.

Edit: If you want ground techs, stop playing space stfs. Be smart. Don't play space if you don't need space.

Sometimes you just get bad luck, sometimes you get good.

Yesterday on my main I finality got my Prototype Deflector to finish my MACO set, and a Prototype salvage, and on one of my alts I barely play I got the common shield and engine. Everything else besides a couple of very rare MKX weapons has been junk the past week and a half.
My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.

For the ground missions i have never gotten any Prototype mark 12 drops..
But to be honest i dont play ground elite much at all.
I have gotten many Rare armour/weapons drops but yeh never Proto.

I still would love to finish off my set of Mark 12 for my Sci toon..Just need to get those 2 deflector peices.

Do u think it makes any differance how quick the mission is completed it maybe??

Guys, does anybody know if the chance of getting rare borg salvages of any kind is somehow related to the amount of impact you had during the STF?

With "amount of impact" I mean your contribution to damge or heal in comparison to that of your fellow STF participants.

The reason why I am asking this: I have the feeling that I gathered more borg salvages with my tac toon which is able to deal a good amount of damage.
With my engineer on the other hand I am not able to get any borg salvage yet. The equipment of that toon is far from perfect yet. In fact I have installed blue XI weapons that do not have an extra anti-Borg effect like the STF equipment has.

Greetings

It just seems to be very random. I got the very rare shield and deflector prototype in two STFs I played back to back with my eng and I even got an additional prototype salvage in one of them. But after that I got nothing in a like 10 other STFs.

Got a full set of mk12 and then recycled it for dilithium last week. Tonites catch was 2 mk 12 shields. Yes yes the maco stuff for those who would be wondering

I am not intending to boast but i feel there is no need to tweek it any further.

I can't believe it but after 150+ STFs of KA I finally got both Mark 12 Deflectors.
Very weird..I got them back to back as well.. So strange.
And in one of them I died once as well..so I don't think it makes a difference..unless it glitched and didn't count it or something??

I'm just very happy now all my 3 toons are complete and I can enjoy the STFs just for the fun of it now..lol
