As I said previously, I have been going to Defera and you have to wait hours to find a KDF group, since there is so few who go there.


And not sure how you can do Defera Hards with your BOFFs, since it requires you to be in a group of 3 players to do them.

And you can generally run a cycle like that in less than an hour. *shrug*

And that's only because we don't have a KDF NWS team up yet...

I'd say it's definitely been worse. I just wish the Starbase Defence queue would fill, or be made cross-faction (optionally, maybe).
I appricate people reminding me there are other ways, but the point is the other methods are not primary ways to earn Fleet Marks, which was the intention of the Fleet Mark Event. And if nobody does it, well doing the other things takes a lot more work to earn those fleet marks that you would get during a Fleet Mark Event.

And that's my point of this thread, I for one, don't want to be stuck literally hours grinding away at smaller events to earn the same fleet marks I would get in a few Fleet Mark Event runs. Especially when it's far easier with the Federation side, due to the higher population. That's why I'm asking if Cryptic would think of something to aid Klingon Fleets. Especially very small Klingon fleets who are just barely making anykind of progress.

And I'll tell you, it is a job to build a Starbase in STO on the Klingon side.

You can do that?
WTF?
U/L a video.
I do NOT want to use ARC to play STO

The best suggestion that I can give you is to join the channels listed in the >KDF Channels List<. Or any other KDF channels you may know for that matter, that might be helpfull.

Since joining all of those I don't have much issues picking up random groups for PvE if my fleeties aren't in the mood of doing runs. You can usually get a group for almost any content, but sometimes you need to be a bit persistent to shake the people up to notice the chat. But honestly, I've been doing even 20 man events like Fleet Starbase Defense fairly often recently.

Hope this was helpfull in any way.

So do the devs need to change something if a player is unwilling to use the tools available to earn FM?

On my 3 main characters I earn anywhere from 800 to 1500 FMs a day (total), Doffing 2x daily for about 10 min each. If it takes someone months to earn 10k CXP, you are doing it wrong.. holodeck performance of hamlet alone can give you more than 10k cxp.

I see a lot of excuses in the thread and not a lot of trying

rumors say that the game is going crossfaction with a end to the war in S9. If so, I hope they make all endgame cross faction playable.

For KDF characters, you really need to earn your Fleet Marks by doing multiple small grinds to get what the amount your need. There is no one silver bullet to knock out the amount you need. I will say that if you have more than 1 character that is KDF, you might want to try setting up your characters to do back to back missions, whether it is Defera, Fleet Alert, Crystal, etc. That is what I am currently doing at the moment with my characters for my small KDF fleet.

Proof is in the interview .... http://www.gandtshow.com/?p=3059

KDF discussions begin and continue off and on from timestamp 35 minutes onward.

But Geko says the way is ending ... even had Michael Dorn record lines to that affect for future use.

Cross faction queues going forward.

For fleet marks ... Yes .... You are right on the "mark" with those events. Add in the defend the station one with the Elachi as well as the Elachi Alert.

OH ... You can also earn fleet marks with some of the DOFF missions on the dilithium mine ... at least if it critz.
