I was going to start a thread about it, but since you mentioned it, let me give a brief description.
"KDF Empire" is meant to be an all KDF discussion channel, unlike "KDFdefera", which is a call to battle channel. Some examples of the discussions that, ideally, would happen are: ship builds, battle re-caps, PvE, PvP, farming, grinding, DOFFing, and anything that relates to the KDF. So if you feel like having these types of discussions, please feel free to join. It is a public channel.
Last thing, "KDF Empire" is not a replacement for "KDFdefera". I really enjoy the service that "KDFdefera" offers, so if you haven't heard of them, try out their channel too, as well as bootyboots' "KDFsocial".
