I'm sure pretty much everyone will agree with me when I say space STFs are the easiest to do, while ground is much harder. While I personally like the reputation system, it's most likely going to virtually kill ground STFs.

Why grind Cure ground when you can repeatedly do the super easy Infected space.

I know a couple of people who actually like ground missions. Don't ask me why.

My guess is that you also like ground missions (or else why would you care if they were virtually dead).

In any case, I bet there will still be enough ground STF players to keep them alive (at least in the custom channels).

In the 50's people were saying that oral contraception would make everyone having sex in the streets. It didn't happen. It's not because there's a minor change that everything will dramatically change forever, etc.

I like when people predict that doom will come and that the end of the world is close because something unusual happened. Ground stfs won't die. People will still queue for it. You can still find idiots to queue with you for the gekli feeding grounds if they notice there's someone there, so why would ground stfs die?

BTW I like ground, it's even easier than space - less stuff to click on and pure keyboard gameplay FTW.

Speaking of which Into The Hive seems kinda fun. Too bad I'm wearing just Jemhadar gear. :p

Jem gear works decently well vs Borg. You will likely want to make the Jem weapon secondary or just not use it. The armor has decent stats for fighting Borg. Good energy resist and both HP and shield regen.

They won't be dead; it'll be all I play now. I have my MACO Team Commander on my main from playing the Space Elites, and I only play the space ones on her for the tech (still yet to get any of that). My other characters are all Team Specialist/Specialist at least whilst they grind away to get the weapons/sets to do well at Elites. I play Ground pretty much exclusively because I find them a lot more fun!

It's one of the few times where my sci and engie captains (one for each faction) feel much more powerful and useful than my tac captains. And I love it!

People were talking about this in another thread, that I think does have some credibility. People forget with the old STFs, when Marks were around, people mostly did Infected, because it was the easiest STF to get Marks of Valor and then Emblems.

So with the S7 STF changes, the only things that keeps people from solely doing Infected Space all the time is the accolades and the cooldown timer.
NO to ARC!

Season 9.5 = STO's NGE is Here! Welcome to the Grind!

New Crafting = It's not Crafting, is an overblown Reputation System.

So basically everything will go back to the way it used to be before the overhaul that made them all equally played?
