# 1 Whiny feds getting cloak?
05-17-2010, 05:06 PM
I havent been on the test server for a while cause with all the changes it would just put me in a bad mood and I dont need that. But had a bud call me and tell me that fed dogs are getting cloak? I laughed at him. Told him even Cryptic is not that stupid. But I have seen talk about this. Can anyone confirm? If it is true, KDF game play is done.

There is a reward ship for both factions the Galaxy X Cruiser which has a forward aoe cannon and a non battle cloaking device being added.

Yeah if they can talk 5 people to buy the game and actually pay for a month, or they can purchase 5 copies and pay for a month of game play. There may be a few come into the game but I dont think there will be many. Besides they will still suck in PvP and cry we are still OPed because we use teamwork. I am a little concerned about the "special" weapon they will get with it, being able to shoot all the targets that are infront of or behind the initial target (if I understand the specs correctly).

What was the Klingons reward ship? I dont think we will be getting the Galaxy X.

Being a squeaky wheel pays off in this game. Look at the coming nerf all the complaining about Escorts and Burst Damage has brought about.

yep. both kdf and ufp players that actually get 5 people through the raf program get to use the galaxy x.

depending on the boff slots, i dont see why klingons would wanna take it over a raptor.

THere is plenty of whine from both factions in this game ... however, the defiant bonus and Mask Energy Signature are the only thing I know of even being close to a cloak in this game for Feds. However MES is not a true cloak and you can still be seen if the enemy is close enough rendering it essentially useless.

What amazes me is that this is supposed to the future ... even in Star Trek ... so to be silly, it's the future's future and the Feds have still not figured out that a cloaked escort has a signifigant advantage in it's alpha strike. Oh well ... no one said humans were the smartest creatures in the Universe.

I play both factions and like them equally. More content Red Side would be nice though.

arc, in the lore, theres this treaty between the feds and romulans that prevents feds from pursuing cloak tech. its not that they dont realize the value in a cloaked flying gunboat, its that they (due to good faith reasons) cant make a cloaked flying gunboat.

also, MES does not work in pvp, only in pve.

There is an old diplomatic agreement between the Romulans and Federation that prevented the Feds from developing Cloaking technology. Treaty of Algeron Came about as a result of a war between the 2 powers and the peace agreement following it.

It's not that Starfleet doesn't have the technical know how. It's the Federation is good with their word. Capt.Picard went to great lengths defending the treaty in the Pegasus incident.
