The following are some ideas for Cryptic to begin stemming the losses of further Klingon dedicated players.
1) Introduce a Game Title for all Klingon General level players. Reward their dedication to the Empire. This title should only be available to Generals who leveled before the next update of PvE content.
2) Include some special item for General players. A Bat'leth or other cool Klingon weapon or Costume change.
I'd love to see the long coats that are worn at the High Council made available to Generals.
3) Announce the intention for full Klingon Episodic content.
4) Annouce a purely Klingon update targetted for the next 2 months.
5) Annouce the intention and timeframe for the introduction of limited consentual PvP with territorial implications.
6) Announce a competition to write an Klingon Episode open to all Klingon Captains and above.
Do you have any other suggestions?

You have to have credibility to draw people in. Cryptic has lost credibilty and will have a very difficult time finding new players , forget pulling old players back. It's about depth of gameplay this game utterly lacks that aspect.

You don't get it , it's not about Klingons . They are a small minority of the player base . The majority of the paying customers ( that's what it boils down to ) play Fed. The game is meant to function as Fed orientated , Klingons Romulans and Cardassians are monster play for those that crave PvP . God forbid that the PvP be challenging in Cryptics world or the gameplay.

The following qoute is from Cryptics Ask Klingons Round 3.
"Due to the community’s demand, we are also releasing more PvE content - fleet actions, Special Tasks Forces, Star Clusters and, down the road, unique episodes. Eventually you will be able to play a Klingon character to General with PvE alone".
The important part for me is "unique episodes".

Nobody in this messageboard can read. That "ask cryptic" is 3 weeks old and not one person who has posted "doom and gloom" seems to understand that it is coming.

Really , let's see my join date July 2008 , Yours Feb 2009 , so you've listened and heard the promises almost as long as I have . What I do understand for a company to have credibility they have to release a game that was promised they released half a game and a bunch of unfulfilled promises . People will not wait nor bank on promises any longer , that the issue. MMO's basically get one chance to make a good impression Cryptic obviosly missed it's

I cannot beleive you have been here longer than me because if so, you would remember last fall cryptic saying that they where NOT GOING TO INCLUDE KLINGONS ON RELEASE. A month later they said they woudl release them with the bear minimum. And what do we have? The bear minimum.

You have no right to be shocked at this. I...I can't accept it.

Do you go to a dentist and say "I had no idea you where going to check out my teeth. You should have told me" or "What? This car I am willing to buy is going to cost X amount? It is the same amount as the sticker price!".

Please, explain why you expect more than was promised.

Um, we read the message all right. "Doom and gloom" aren't coming, they are here.

That "Ask Cryptic" has been analyzed closely and consists of 6 parts fluff, 2 parts non-answers and 2 parts promises of more non-specific "stuff" at a later (unspecified) date. You should go back and reread it a couple of times, with a critical eye.


WE DON'T TRUST CRYPTIC TO DO THE RIGHT THING. Especially after that Federation (with a bone to Klingons) 45-day update.


Cryptic should be kissing Klingon butt, not the other way around!

Keep that word in mind. fact of the matter is these changes they are doing to the klingons (The explore missions) could have been done a long time ago, but for some reason they just now tumble to the idea "Oh lets put them red side!" its something that could have been probably included at launch to cover their butts or at least stop the flow of Klingon players leaving, but they didnt. I'm i the only person wondering why they were not? or why the Expanse missions did not just simply auto level with you since they can be done solo?

I'm not saying they are not working on the problem now but seriously, why would you miss something this easy to throw in?

Putting this a bit back on topic...

I really like the idea of BG5 Klingons getting a special Blue Bat'Leth for their service to the Empire. BG Klingons already get a special uniform option in the mantle that unlock at general (I think it is under the sashes section of the uniform customization screen).
