I don't think they will remove it. It is actually listed in the project description that you can get the Reman Shield through the Coliseum mission. Besides its not as impressive as the Assimilated Console so you will have a ton of people skipping over that version of the set to get it at Tier 5.

1500 dilithium? That is less than two days grinding. I believe that that has been the historical cost for the borg items.

If they'd remove the "bend over and spread 'em" dilithium costs from this stuff it wouldn't be so bad. Dil is more of a chore than ever to get, but you need ridiculous amounts of it for most things.

Because you can't "just play the game" anymore. Cryptic has very specific hoops you have to grind through if you want to advance your character.

I would love to "just play the game" the way I want to and accrue advancement points, but that's not what Season 7 is about.

79 cents for a box of banana walrus wafers? That's ridiculous!

Uh, no, you are wrong, like, 100% wrong. Borg set items used to cost 5 EDC. It was a nice starter set that would give you something to use while you were working on the MACO/Omega sets.

5 EDC was 5 STFs (or WAY less if you got lucky or did them on bonus days). You could also get the drops that would earn you the item without spending the EDC (that option is long gone too).

Now the items cost 500 marks and 15000 dilithium (plus an EC cost in materials that for the sake of argument we'll call 'trivial').

How many STFs would it take to earn that? 480 dil per STF. So somewhere in the neighborhood of 30.

5 STFs vs 30 STFs.

I get that they have no content and they're stalling for time, making people re-earn the right to purchase things they used to earn for just playing STFs, but seriously. The lower tiers are just plain ridiculous.

Uh, no, the Borg set used to cost 3, 3-4 hour long missions. Then the best set became the cheapest set to get in S6.

When I say historically, I mean including the time before EDC. Remember Omega Fleet? Probably not. >sigh<
