This is one of a few bug reports about KDF items being unusable on the Jem HEC.
There are multiple attempts all through the forums to get some attention, even one on Cryptic's Facebook page.
This thread was moved from this General Community Feedback to the dank dark corner of the Klingon Fleetyards.
It's been almost a month of multiple requests, many of which could not have been missed by devs and mods. There has been no statement, no acknowledgment of the problem, by anyone.
Then comes a bug report that Phased Tetryon DHCs will not slot to the Vesta. It received a response that the fix would be in the next patch. The response came in two hours.
Mods, as a paying customer I request that you draw dev attention to this as a complaint. This is not a game balance issue. I don't want a nerf to something because of the way I want to play. I want to be able to use the things I paid for. I want customer service for my purchases.
Further, I respectfully request that you leave this in a well traveled forum. If Cryptic fixes it I will be the first to come here and sing their praises. If a dissatisfied customer doesn't get to have a voice here, then where?
Edit: As of 2/27/13 3 hangars and Quad cannons reported to be functioning on Tribble. Thank you!
ive made several posts over the years about the ktinga model that you see at a distance having glows, but up close it not having those glows. seems like it would be an easy thing to fix, just swapping the correct model reference around in some code.
and the kdf vet ship, since launch, wile in sector space its engines do not stay extended like you see them when they warp out.
i use both of these ships, these bugs are a big fricking deal to me, but they don't seem to care about these kdf specific issues.
latest threads in question about these problems here, with pictures and everything
You'd think if Cryptic was smart, they'd realize that paying attention to KDF would not only resolve a lot of customer (we're not just gamers, many of us are customers, myself included) dissatisfaction and go a long way towards boosting the image of STO and Cryptic to potential new players out there, it would increase demand for KDF characters.
More people playing KDF = more people wanting to buy c-store KDF items.
Since Cryptic really only cares about making money, more people wanting to play KDF (since roughly only 12-15% of STO players primarily play KDF) means more people spending money not just on their Fed characters, but on their KDF characters as well.
You'd think they'd be smart enough to stop being completely lazy about KDF entirely.
they made a bunch of gorn, nasican, and orian ships and no body bought them. proboly lost a bunch of money on that. but why did no one buy them? they weren't end game, and they wanted to push consoles, and built an entire ship for each console. no wonder logan got burnt out and left. they should not have built half of them imo, just the tier 4 ships, and they should have made them tier 5 too, and not such fed ship clones. if we wanted to use fed ships we would play our feds. desirable ships at end game are worth the price, but after that experience they wont go near kdf c store content.
until they tried again with the bortas, and that sold like crap too. but why again? well, unlike all the fun kdf cruisers, its basically a fed cruiser clone, slow moving and huge. they made sci consoles good again too at the same time thanks to the new skill tree, so suddenly it having no sci consoles really sucked. for any sci related offense you want to be stacking flow or particle, for heals shield emitters, and for personal defense field projectors. but it cant do any of that, and the only weapons it can used do crap damage, even more so today then back then. it cant be half the healer the ody is, and the ody has saucer sep and up to 4 sci consoles for healing duty.
so continued badly placed and poor product are actually why kdf c store stuff has not sold, and why they dont spend any billable hours fixing kdf related issues. they think its a bad investment, because they haven't made anything desirable. except the kdf vet ship and kamarang, now those are awesome ships. the fleet bops are good to, especially with the hull buff.
all the kdf fleet ships are pretty awesome actually. the somraw is a fleet patrol with a cloak, the nasican escort is an advanced escort with 17 turn, the fleet corsair is basically a kdf odyssey, the fleet ktinga, kamarang, and negvar make awesome tech doff powered DHC using battle cruisers, the fleet vorcha is great even without tech doffs, the bops have an extra LTC station power or 4th tac console, they are all pretty damn nice
