Now I feel stupid. What is this new rep system everyone keeps on talking about??
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Tired of Wasting EC and Time trying to get Superior Romulan Operative BOffs? Here's a cheap and easy way to get them, with an almost 100% chance of success.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder.

this is the information age...the guy with the most information and the means to get them is the new alpha male. Deal with it!
Once you start using the internet as it was intended...you will feel a sense of enlightenment.

For starters just klick the link provided on the MAIN PAGE that leads you to "priority one podcast at cryptic"

but in my endless generasity i will provide you with the "sacred" link

somewhere after 20 minutes it gets interesting.

To those with excess EDC's trade them in for Retro borg engines/shield/deflector. 5 EDC = 1 of those.
Buy like 20 of them.

Go to any trader on DS9 and turn each in for 100,000EC. That stack of 100 EDC soon turns into 2mil EC.

It's not 100K EC, but a bit less aka 80K. But it's in general that the drops went down, even on missions : dropboxes, batteries, food are the most that are given. The new course that Cryptic is going for STF's, Roman/Reman, or anyother kind seems nice, but what about those that still at the start of the whole game. Will they be able to proceed as in the STF's & the rest, with projects of their own & getting reputation for that or will they still get valuable item drops, so they can turn those in for EC's if they wish.

Can't help but wonder if the drops have been nerfed as part of the pre-season buildup. Can't have people gathering MACO/Omega gear through the 'old' method now, can we?

If you recycle them in the replicator (like anything else) yeah you will get less. Go to the commodities vendor on DS9 and sell them to him. 100k EC each.

Works out at 20k EC per EDC.

it's a 100k at vendors. But in view of the reputation system, i would keep em just for now...you may need them to increase reputation with omega force in season 7.

PS: 1'd rather take the 1k dilithium for 10EDC...EC are so easy to come by theses days anyway. (common fleet doffs)

Well, just did a Cure Space Elite and the only drops were Uncommon MK X items. How rewarding is this then ? Nougabolle as they would say in Flemish or Not !!! It's rather an insult towards the players then a reward.

BTW, the biggest grief and frustration of all is the optional of these STF's : Why on earth, when the whole team is succeeding the goal, do have that optional to be a "need or greed" lottery ??? Why on earth should a few of the team members getting rewarded, some with loads, some with little, loads with no optional reward at all. It's a team effort, so IMO each team member should get the total package of that optional, as an equal reward for the efforts.

True and it might improve teamwork in pugs if everyone knew the optional could be a very nice prize instead of the current grab bag.

Agreed. I remember before the lockboxes came out when they used to give us an extra piece of loot per player in the rewards bag. Then came the lockboxes with the promise 'We'll not be replacing loot with lockboxes. They will be extra'... Yeah, right.

Here's an idea... If a group manages to get the optional on elite, give them a key each.
