I find it amusing that ALL Romulan ships apparently have battle cloak. And I really wonder why all KDF ships don't have battle cloak, and why ALL birds of prey don't have the advanced battle cloak.

I'm guessing play balance.. but then I'm an old hard core gronyard of a gamer.

The enemy has not intention of giving you a fair fight anyway, so whats with the concern over if a ship has a cloak? Or what type?

As A KDF player I almost never cloak any more other then to set up for a de cloak alpha... and I don't even bother against AI simply because the way the combat system works, yep, its pretty much suicide, so I don't bother cloaking in PvE unless its some sort of mission requirement.
Well, I've argued several times that ALL cloaks should function as battle cloaks currently do, and that - in order to preserve the uniqueness of birds of prey as well as the B'rel - every battle cloak and advanced battle cloak should be buffed to the next tier.

In the case of BCs, it would become an ABC. ABCs would in turn be buffed (shorter decloak, no decloak, ability to fire energy weapons... whatever Cryptic decided to do).

But apparently, nobody ever listens to people like me...

I will admit, however, that unless all Starfleet ships would gain access to the cloaking device console (as well as any non-Klingon KDF ships), there would be a bit of imbalance.
Infinite possibilities have implications that could not be completely understood if you turned this entire universe into a giant supercomputer.
And I don't pretend to understand them.
