    I have a 2012 rMBP that had issues with daisy chaining my 3xU2414H with DisplayPort. Are Apple seriously not offering MST capability in the new MBP's and will I have to go and buy 3 new USB-C to DP/HDMI cables or adaptors and fill up all the ports?

    Mac OS does support MST but only for hires, not for Daisy Chaining. Windows will support MST including Daisy Chaining on the same hardware, not sure why Mac OS hasn't implemented this yet.

    Your best option would be to use a TB3 dock that will give you 2x Displays output.

    I don't think this will work either. I have a TB2 dock with my current mac that won't support a MiniDP and HDMI monitor unless they are mirrored.

    A TB3 dock will work for this scenario. TB2 docks (as you mentioned) does not support this for various reasons. TB3 has sufficient bandwidth for dual displays from the dock and it is a noted feature of most TB3 docks that have multiple ports:
