Within the last month, I found myself playing a lot more on KDF over my Fed (which essentially become my alt) - and I am wondering why that's the case.

What I like about Fed:
-customization options on characters and ships
-More selection of ships should I choose to buy
-familiar ships


What I like about KDF:
-Better carrier play - I always been playing Pet Master / mobile nukes, be it STO, CO, or any other games that give me options for usign pets. Also allow me to have carrier for free.
-Better DoFF assignments, especially Marauding
-Better fleet - the Fed Fleet I joined seems to grow stale even though it suppose to be a division of a bigger fleet, not to mention not letting me use the fleet bank. The KDF fleet I join is growing, even if slowly, and let me use fleet banks.


So what I want to know is: am I abnormal, or is KDF actually better than Fed? I am trying to find a reason to make a Fed-Rom, but it seems KDF-Rom will be better...

Is someone weird or abnormal because he prefers ketchup on his fries instead of mayo?

No. But you're weird for asking.

People don't all base their decisions on the same criteria. There's some distinct advantages in KDF play. But I don't like the backstory for it, so I've got the dilithium farming alts and called it at that. For playing the game earnestly I generally prefer the faction that has more options for First Contact than "Destroy" and "Destroy for the glory of the Empire!".

By the same token though, I'm not going to care for one moment about anything related to any Romulan character I create, so that or those character(s) will align with the KDF as it's the only way to get some use out of the subterfuge trait and I can always use more dilithium farming alts.

Yes. Mayo on fries rules.

Hmm is this some weird attempt to make more players join the KDF? There have been plenty of those lately...

More players should play as the KDF. Period. It's not like Cryptic are making you pay for it, so why not play as the KDF?

I like my characters, but ever since my KDF Engineer got his Andorian Boff, he's had a bit more character to him than any of my Feds.
Iconian? A label created by the Dewans to give voice to their destruction.
In the end, what they chose to call us is irrelevant.
We simply... are.

Pretty much this. I do hope more players come to the KDF after the LoR release. One of the big problem areas was the grating red UI that KDF players have to use, and now there will be options to pick from. That, combined with the starting from level 1 thing, will probably boost KDF numbers at least a little bit.

It all depends on what you like. Some weekends, I spend more time on my KDF than my Fed. Then another weekend, its the Feds turn. It all depends on the mood I'm in or what I need to do on the game.

When the Romulan joins my line up. That will be even more different. Since I have 3 factions to play with.
