That is indeed a concern amongst some KDF players, that this will just imbalance things further because this will be a way for Federation players to get a cloak without having to grub with us smelly Klingons. There's some concerns that the balance will be shifted towards Fed-Rom due to the content the Federation has, their slight edge in starbase maturity (more fleets at Tier 5), and the general numbers the faction has.
I don't know how it will turn out. I'm waiting and watching this whole thing unfold. I'll be returning to the game itself in May (currently on a hiatus from it) to play the new content that's come out over 4-5 months.
As to how cloaks will affect PvP between KDF and Fed-Roms. . .I think we KDF will just have to start carrying around countermeasures against cloaks
The aceton assimilators ought to help with that.
