the Typical Feddie Pug in C&H and Arena does not work at all well together, they either "Kirk it up" or hoard their heals and buffs and leave their teammates hanging out isolated and unsupported against KDF enemies who've HAD to learn to work as a team because of serious deficiencies in their ship designs relative to the Fed average.
This is REALLY visible in Ker'rat, where the best the Feds can manage is to ball up and spawncamp the KDF spawn-point, and that only works when they outnumber their opponents more than 3 to 1.
Fed players who consistently fail to understand the advantages they already enjoy, want Cloak/Battlecloak because they think that those are HOW the KDF is beating them-rather than understanding that BC is the only thing that makes the Bird of Prey class VIABLE.
"when you're out of Birds of Prey, you're out of ships."
I play KDF, because being a genocidal maniac works better with Klingons, than explaining it as a member of Starfleet.
