Will feds get our plasma leech in next patches?
Hello there i just gotta know for sure if there will be a true reason for me to keep on playing with my KDF and generally stick with this game.

I cant afford to keep paying the game so in two weeks or months the company kicks in and take down all the things that made me play KDF and exist as a unique faction.
Also make feds so much OP that no matter how good i play and no matter how much i pay i will just a federation puppet only reason existing is the entertain them NO NO NO THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEND!

First of all the company is treating KDF so much unfair i cant believe it.

They dont even listen to us when things get out of the hands and many klingon come 2gether to rightfully protest for all those promises and all those things given to feds when none was given to KDF then THEY SHUT US DOWN AND LOCK DOWN OUR THREATS AND BAN THE OP'S.

This is unacceptable we are customers also we pay the dudes that lockdown our threads they got no right to shut us down we rightfully protest here.

I bet this forum moderator he admited himself he got a KDF toon but its not active (meaning hes KDF hater and FED lover)

Now leave my rightfully protesting threads alone or i report you with email to PWE and Cryptic. You bet that if you ban me again without a true reason or shut down my Question thread this one i can and will report you. Even from your forums ''jokes'' its obvious you favour federation and you throw ''dead'' tribbles at KDF.

Last thing we might be only the 19% of total pop as some say but even if thats true 19% is a big number and LOTS of money to throw away just to soften even more ur spoiled federation kids.

Because if what the tittle says comes true you instantly kill KDF and the 20% of total population. But if you leave things as they are now and maybe show a little more attention to KDF side then you can keep the already happy customers the 80% from federation and also keep us the 20% of the KDF alive and paying. This is a lot better for everyone. the federation the KDF and the company and us players who will enjoy a nice balanced game.

But srsly killing the KDF just to share via lockboxes one console this is not good idea.

Because if plasma leech is shared its a major hit in KDF and even if not all 20% quit i bet my degree that 5% WILL QUIT INCLUDING ME AND THATS A LOT OF MONEY YOU GONE WASTE AND YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU WONT GET THOSE MONEY BACK FORM LOCKBOXES!

PS. i copied all protesting KDF posts into my computer its about 100 pages or more keep shuting us down here and maybe we can copy paste everything into another blog/forums where we can continue our conversation without interuptions.
PS2. Because i got better things to do rather than defend the right and the justice into a game and trying to save the company customers and money, i would like someone who is in charge and responsible enough to reply me if the feds will get our plasma leech in next patches idc if its one week or one year but if that happends at some point i would like to know it from NOW!

I would ty in advance but i wont cause no reply will be given to me and most prolly gone lock down the threat again and bad me because i expose the unfair treatment the company is showing to KDF faction and its playerbase

As long as decent ppl keeps on playing KDF i will be here to show them what is right or wrong i will never stop unless you start treating them fair and square.

Have they noticed the MACO shields also give their ships power?

Plasmonic leech is +1 per weapon per activation
MACO shield is +2 per activation.

Both have the same timer duration.

The difference? KDF gets the power bonus by shooting, feds by getting shot AT.

...and the fact that the federation gets the STF MACO shield for FREE while KDF has to BUY a ship to get it.

The leech cannot be given to the federation unless the maco shield or a similar shield is given to the KDF. Otherwise one side would have the ability to double-stack power bonuses.

Can you imagine how overpowered a federation ship would be with +40 power gain by using both of these? Ridiculous.

If I shave this dead tribble, dry it out completely so it shrinks into a gnarled little fleshy ball of skin, do you think it would work for a Golf-like game for Klingons?

Or maybe a version of Polo using giant targs as mounts?

On the subject of KDF being left behind.

Quiet the madness Cryptic, finish the KDF.

The simple fact that we see so much KDF angst over the situation of how the faction is should be more than enough evidence that an issue exists and needs to be fixed to fan satisfaction.

I agree with the OP in principle but..

where did he read the Feds are getting the leech?

They already have one. Its called MACO shields.

If it does happen, will KDF receive a power level boosting shield?

Surely its against forum rules to make a new thread saying the exact same thing as an old thread that was closed because it had run its course?

As long as this one stays on topic and doesn't turn into a flame fest, it's good.

The question at hand is, do the Feds get the leech? I think that's a fair question.

If they did get it, what imbalance would be introduced? Also a fair question, and good feedback.

If they did get it, how unhappy would the KDF players get and why? Legitimate feedback, as long as it doesn't turn into a flame fest.

That is the point I hopes get seen through all this madness. I care little for the plasma leech, but alot for the future of the Empire.

i couldnt agree more it seem that anything that had made for interesting play on kdf is quickly sold to feds.

i dont think cyptic care its obvious fed stuff after fed stuff NOTHING for kdf.

but there is nothing we can do about it as its aagist rules or where ever. personly id like to see all the podcasts standing up for kdf and encourging a boycot of cstore fed play or boycott the game for a day.

unless it affects the $$$ they wont and dont care. im sick of the way kdf get treated and everytime i hear any talk of adding another faction it makes me laugh so hard they cant or wont finish the kdf.

maybe more players could do what i have done i delted all my feds and refuse to buy anything fed until things are fixed.

A poster in another thread (now closed) said he heard a rumor that the leech was going to Feds in an upcoming patch.

I never saw any source. Maybe it came up on Tribble?

If there's a link to a thread where someone actually saw it, I'd be interested in seeing that thread. And so would every other KDF player.

Why am I posting here? Just gonna repeat the same stuff I have posted in carrier threads, Fed cloak threads, Fed battle cloak threads, Fed Orion costume threads, universal BO stations on all Fed ships threads, Fed BoP threads, Fed "Klingons are OP in PvP and do too much damage" threads... on and on ad nauseum.

Don't know why I bother. Feds have carriers, Feds have two ships with cloaking and the Rhode Island, Feds have universal stations on more ships than the KDF do, Fed fleet escorts now pack more tac console slots than any KDF raptor or BoP, the trend seems to be let the Feds eat cake.

I'm tired but while I am staring at the ceiling as I try to figure out what color to paint it while I wait for the Feds to get off... Well I guess it's the same poo on a different shoe all over again.

Feds should not get Plasmodic Leach. Yes it is buggy right now, (which is why I seldom use it), it is on the table for yet another revamp to control just how much power it gives the the person who slots it. So I ultimately know they are not gonna get the "I Win!" button they are looking for.

That aside I am, as always, against the Feds getting it for all the same reasons as in all those other threads, primarily novelty of the factions. Plasmodic Leach is well positioned for a thing called "Perfect Imbalance" in that on the surface it looks OP but if the Devs get the math that underpins it just right will be effective but in the long run able to be countered. This, like the Fed AMS console, makes a novel niche for the factions that will encourage better meta gaming.

The Klingons should have a couple game mechanics to themselves. Most everything novel to the faction is now able to be done on the Fed side as it is. That means that carrots to lure Fed players try KDF play have been removed from the table.

Given that a new player has less incentive to actually commit to a KDF toon as they have to wait till level 26 to even roll a KDF the KDF needs every single hook they can grasp.

Blocking Feds from KDF exclusive toys like Plasmodic Leach is not in any way being stingy. It is trying to avoid further faction population stagnation.

That is my peace.
