Choosing a Side; Disparities
 
For RP and cool purposes, I strongly want to make my Rom(s) ally with the Federation.

But the sad fact is, KDF has better universal consoles, and through the lockboxes, gets all the best Fed Consoles, while the Fed still doesn't have 2 (or more) of the KDF's best (at least Plasmonic Leech and Aceton Assimilator).

This is disheartening.

Have you looked into what the various C-Store Rom ship consoles are like?

I haven't been following it that closely, myself, but I'm not a PvPer so I don't worry much about the console powers.

If you're right, maybe this will lead to a boosted KDF side population when it comes to PvP queues... isn't that a good thing?

I would start a KDF/ROM fleet as I suspect it will be a popular thing soon, but then I'd actually have to bother to do recruiting. It seems like a lot of work and extra time.

And after getting bitten before, I am not being in anyone else's fleet. If someone is going to simply log off and kill the whole thing, then darn it, it's going to be me.

But maybe if a few of the forumers want to start one, that could be cool.

Been my experience that you have to go through about 3 fleets/guilds/kinships/whatever before you find a really good one.

LOL! I was in EXACTLY that situation in STO!

In TOR, however, it's more of a "find really good one at first, get kicked, get kicked, and get kicked again" situation. :(

Yeah except you forgot to mention KDF get a lot of terrible fed consoles as well while the Feds always get a good KDF Console. Get your facts straight first. Besides Plasmonic Leech and Aceton Assimilator are nothing more than trinkets now. You have to be frankly an idiot to die to an Aceton Assimilator while Plasmonic Leech is easily countered by power insulators.

Feds should never have gotten KDF Consoles and vice versa in the first place.

Plasmonic Leech is not good because of what it does to the enemy, but because it buffs your own power. Very useful for Romulans, who start in the hole on power.

KDF now gets AMS (pure awesome), Nadeon Detonator (pretty good, boff power that doesn't take up a slot), Impulse Burst (good GTFO consoles), Point Defense System (excellent for torp and fighter spam), and Photonic Displacement (super meh).

The only Fed Consoles left are Cloak Seeking Torp, Transwarp Computer, and Tachyon Detection. That is, the 3 crappiest ones.

Fed gets Theta Radiation (meh), Isometric Charge (meh), Subspace Jump (useful, but not great), Graviton Pulse (fairly good), and Bioneural Warhead (pretty good).

I would call that a disparity. KDF gets all of the Feds best consoles, while Fed gets mostly meh consoles.

Fun use for this; blow past an an enemy in an escort on a strafing run, throw it into reverse and use Impulse Burst to put them BACK into your forward firing arc...then do it again. :P
