# 1 STF and Azure nebula questions
12-30-2012, 11:53 PM
Hi peeps

Just wondering if anyone knows if there is an actual pattern or theory of how you obtain the 11 or 6 neural processors.
I always thought it depended on how much damage you inflict and at the end of the mission it's calculated and awarded 11 BNP to the person who did the most damage and 6 BNP to the second person. And everyone else gets 1BNP.

The second question is why is it when ever I do the romulan mission azure nebular why am I flying around for ages waiting for ships to appear? I could be waiting up to 2 minutes waiting for drops. Why is this? It's frustrating.

Thanks for reading peeps and have a great new year.

I, personally, assume it's DPS based.

I frequently obtain either six or eleven neural processors when using my Tac.

However, when using my sci, which I primarily do, I only ever obtain one.

Sad fact is DPS remains king, which is (obviously) not what sci is all about, so I'm basically left having to accept the 'penalty' of chosing to play Sci over Tac in STF's.

Nope, my healing sci gets more of them and better loot than my dps-crazy tac. I think its now completely random.

its random according to dev post/notes kinda like the old loot drops salvage huh...lol but you only need 10 for one xii part so 30 stfs with a luck chance you get alot more before the 30 is up
EDIT but now everyone can get it and stuff instead of random drop

I've run a few dozen STFs since S7 came out, and I've always gotten 1 BNP except on one occasion. I was doing CSE yesterday and got 11 of them, and I am running the fleet tactical escort retro. So basically If a dps crazy machine like my ship doesn't get 11 BNP all the time, it's random.
