Depends on what you consider enough. Last time there was any discussion, Dstahl mentioned that 18% of the playerbase has played a Klingon. Take that for what you will.

I've seen a lot of new Klingons lately. I've seen some of the older Klingons leave. In general, the Klingon community is welcoming of anyone that wants to try the faction out. Most Klingon players would like to see more.

That said, if you are finding the levelling aspect to tedious and dull, don't torture yourself. Only play in a way that you find fun. It is a game after all.

Personally, I kind of find that number (as well as the previous '12% #) a little off. 18% have played is not the same as 'are currently playing as main characters.' I have to have 2 of my nearest dearest friends in the game switch from their Fed toons to get a Ground PvP (FvK, Lt Gen/VA) to pop any given day of the week-or else it just doesn't happen.

I've seen a lot of new Klinks too-all lower levels. I've seen a LOT of KDF-as-mains-players leave. I myself had to take a 6month hiatus, when I came back, my fleet had left the game there's significantly fewer Lt Gen's than there were 6 months ago. Most? EVERY KDF player would LOVE to see more Klinks. Join the party! we has Orion wemenz


SPOILER ALERT they're all dudes IRL

I have 4 Fed Va's and 2 KDF LG's. I will most likely level one for KDF to LG as a sci to have one of each profession. Majority of our fleet has toons on both factions all LG's to play with. Flavor of the day to run Fed or KDF. We were beating Cure on KDF side like no joke. Then the game crashed and we had to restart the ground. Went even faster this time until right at armek the game was taken down for 2 hours for emergency work. WE may not be a KDF all the time fleet but we have atleast 20 active players who can play either side at any time.

The actual lack of KDf content and the devs abuse of the faction itself as well as the statement s from some Devs indicate that they don't want KDF players. They had more then a year to add content, but added only sparingly. Cryptic has shown that they have created a Starfleet Online and never intended to keep up to marketing and promises that there will be a full fledged out 2nd faction.

well like i said last time i was on my klingon there was hardly any high level klingons which made any end game pve or pvp pretty dull.

PvP queues for klinks at LG level do pop, and while you're waiting for them, it's fun to kill Feds in ker'rat.
