Best way I've found to farm materials is to do the various queued missions. They all give material packs. The downside is each one gives specific materials, so to get everything you need you have to do a variety of queued missions (not just borg for instance).
Yes, for many of the good rare items you need to do both space and ground events of all types. I kind of like that I have an incentive to do non-ISE/KSE/CSE events now.
Yeah, there are pro's and con's. I like that I have incentive to do the other stuff, but it can be next to impossible to get into some of the games through the public queue. Might be nice to run some fleet events from time to time to do the other stuff.
