Before, I start. I don't want to see any posts criticizing those expressing their pros nor cons. Let's keep this clean.
Is it imbalanced?
1) Yes / No
For me, in Klingon vs Klingon PvP, the balance is relatively even. The only real differences is the experienced vs the inexperienced.
However, in Federation vs Klingon, there literally isn't any contest. In every Federation vs Klingon Space PvPs I witnessed since Headstart, Federations were greatly out gunned (witnessed from the Klingon side as well as the Federation side). Even the old Fed-Ball in Open Beta is no longer an issue.
its balanced only diffrence is like previous poster mentioned exp and also klingons do go in as groups alot and that also means most will be on voice with eatchotter wich makes it alot easyer to get prim targets and focus fire on them one at a time.
In T1 FvK Klings have the upperhand 90% of the time. This is due to 90% of the Fed side being level 6 with starter white gear and not knowing how to play. No imbalance except for the people controlling the ships.
I think Klingons just need a bit more love at T2 and loot wise. We need a tank in T2 or it is very hard to push through Fed balls and we need some way to get loot otherwise the Feds will always beating us via gear. The only reason Klingons fight well now is because we are forced to, if we don't at T2 or higher, we get ripped if the Feds play anywhere near decently. We don't have the gear or usually the numbers, so we work together to overcome the odds.
I'm sorry, but you have no right to tell me that. Especially when you don't know me.

I'm sorry, but I paid for this game (several times over), and I'm going to give my input on matters I feel needs to be investigated.

I agree, there does need to be PvP Team chat, not people grouping out of necessity.

Didn't Cryptic just say that they were adding Klingon Cruisers to T2?
Cryptic obviously isn't testing PvP like they should be. Klingon BoP and Raptor's Front Canon arcs quickly overwhelm Federation shields, even 1 on 1. BoP's manuverablity is far better than Cruisers (no, I'm not saying nerf BoP's, I'm saying give Fed Cruisers more capability to fight).
Then there is the angle issue, where people can exploit canon arcs by flying above or below.
And finally, there is that PvP que that starts matches 1 sided, without waiting until there is a equal number on both sides.
Everyone just needs to learn how to play their race and role. Also learn to work together and stop running in single file.
That's what I've noticed also.
Every time I've jumped in on the KDF side, we always worked together. Even if we weren't teamed up, we still acted as a group. The Fed side seemed more unorganized. They weren't supporting each other and just doing their own thing.
Like Jester said to Maverick...."You never leave your wingman."
Hopefully it will get better as people get more practice. There are still probably thousands of people who have logged in yet. After the head start is over we may see things change.
Well Feds have some missions where they get Blues as rewards, also the problem atm is that Fed loot tables are broken(working as intended O.o ) so they get blue drops from some missions (and they are repeatable missions).
so blue gear vs mk2/badge
I am just hoping that the last tier dont have the same problem,
Feds doing missions and looting "epic" gear level and we(Klingon) buying only blues from vendors.
how about it Devs , you wanna break some code and enable "epics" for feds soon ?
