Nah.. Kurn was a special case.. "softened" by his fed-bro.. - real Klingons don't whine and even embrace impossible odds (aka fed-leech??? lol)!!! What did Martok once say? .. "A vital mission, impossible odds and a ruthless enemy, what more could we ask for?"

I thought the federation was comprised of good moral character and compasionate hearts for thier fellow sentients yet we have them descending like vultures in this and other threads to feast on the KDF's pain at feeling screwed again.
Guess both fanbases failed to live up to the ideals of thier fandom.
STO is very much an Adam One culture and completely inarticulate about Adam Two.

Guys, we all knew this was coming. We've got the Maco shields through the Reputation system, which provides +10 to power levels while in combat. Add plasmonic leech with a full spec in flow caps, which gives us +16, and you've got +26 to all power levels while in combat.

I do agree, though, that this is once again a horrible trade. But if that's a reason for ya'll to stop playing KDF, you weren't worthy of the red UI anyway.

This doesn't bother me at all. You could even look at it as a tacit admission by Cryptic that the Romulans need this console. The leech is great, no one will debate that, which means it's going to be in very high demand Fedside. Fed-aligned Rommies will want it, sci captains will want it, cruiser captains will probably want it too in order to make their ships less derpy. That equates to extremely high sale prices on the Exchange, which will go to even more insane levels after the boxes stop dropping. Or you can always gamble with keys and enjoy an inventory overflowing with doff packs and dil mining claims. Meanwhile on the KDF side, you pay 1000 zen ONCE and have the leech for every KDF or KDF-aligned Rommie on your account, forever. I will buy exactly one leech console Fedside, for my sci alt. All of my Romulans will be KDF-aligned, so they can enjoy the leech consoles I already have unlimited access to.

I'm still waiting for the all the whining once everyone Fedside who didn't skill into flow caps realizes they now need to buy a respec.

I will still play a Klingon when servers come back up with LoR going live... some stupid console going one side or the other will not change that and I do not care...

The only thing I don't like about it is the timing. By putting that console in a box now only aids to players choosing Fed faction with their Romulan character.

That little bit up there was exactly what came to my mind a little while ago, I can imagine a lot of profiteering off that console box...definitely isn't going to be 50k like the last one.

I can imagine outrageous prices for it since it is probably the most desired KDF console in the game. Millions definitely...maybe even tens or hundreds of millions for it. If people get really greedy I could imagine seeing the console box go for more than the ship itself lol.
