I find it amazing...and interesting...to see Fed players posting in numerous threads about the May update, and how it is going to solve all KDF problems, and how all of the complaints will be addressed, the factions rebalanced, and how there will be no more reason for KDF players to be a thorn in the side of Federation C-Store ship progression...

It goes to show two things...

1. That it irritates the you-know-what out of a certain element in the playerbase to point out - repeatedly - that this perfect game that they love to play is actually unfinished. Once you step outside of Fed dreamland...that becomes very apparent.

2. That there is an element of the playerbase that looks at the KDF faction as being the sole obstacle to the introduction of the Romulans as a faction due to past promises made by Cryptic. What that playerbase does not realize is that given that past promises to the KDF that have been repeatedly broken...the truth is that Cryptic will introduce Romulans when they are ready, regardless of the state of the KDF. That is the pragmatic truth of it.

Another aspect -- the Fed playerbase is obviously getting tired about hearing about the unfairness and outright prejudice being shown the KDF faction players...and so they want to point to something - anything - that helps balance the scales...once May comes around, if there is any progress made on the KDF side (not holding my breath given past promises...), there will be a push to say that the KDF faction is finished...or as finished as it is going to get.

To be honest...I hope I am wrong...but somehow I don't expect that much out of the May update. Maybe it is because of the past SEVEN seasons that have been by and large dissapointments for the KDF, even those seasons touted as being KDF updates.

I am not whining...just pointing out the obvious. Pull up the C-Store, click on "Ships" and select "newest first" for the order...and you will see what I am talking about.
