The following are some ideas for Cryptic to begin stemming the losses of further Klingon dedicated players.
1) Introduce a Game Title for all Klingon General level players. Reward their dedication to the Empire. This title should only be available to Generals who leveled before the next update of PvE content.
2) Include some special item for General players. A Bat'leth or other cool Klingon weapon or Costume change.
I'd love to see the long coats that are worn at the High Council made available to Generals.
3) Announce the intention for full Klingon Episodic content.
4) Annouce a purely Klingon update targetted for the next 2 months.
5) Annouce the intention and timeframe for the introduction of limited consentual PvP with territorial implications.
6) Announce a competition to write an Klingon Episode open to all Klingon Captains and above.
Do you have any other suggestions?

You have to have credibility to draw people in. Cryptic has lost credibilty and will have a very difficult time finding new players , forget pulling old players back. It's about depth of gameplay this game utterly lacks that aspect.

You don't get it , it's not about Klingons . They are a small minority of the player base . The majority of the paying customers ( that's what it boils down to ) play Fed. The game is meant to function as Fed orientated , Klingons Romulans and Cardassians are monster play for those that crave PvP . God forbid that the PvP be challenging in Cryptics world or the gameplay.

The following qoute is from Cryptics Ask Klingons Round 3.
"Due to the community’s demand, we are also releasing more PvE content - fleet actions, Special Tasks Forces, Star Clusters and, down the road, unique episodes. Eventually you will be able to play a Klingon character to General with PvE alone".
The important part for me is "unique episodes".

Nobody in this messageboard can read. That "ask cryptic" is 3 weeks old and not one person who has posted "doom and gloom" seems to understand that it is coming.

Really , let's see my join date July 2008 , Yours Feb 2009 , so you've listened and heard the promises almost as long as I have . What I do understand for a company to have credibility they have to release a game that was promised they released half a game and a bunch of unfulfilled promises . People will not wait nor bank on promises any longer , that the issue. MMO's basically get one chance to make a good impression Cryptic obviosly missed it's

I cannot beleive you have been here longer than me because if so, you would remember last fall cryptic saying that they where NOT GOING TO INCLUDE KLINGONS ON RELEASE. A month later they said they woudl release them with the bear minimum. And what do we have? The bear minimum.

You have no right to be shocked at this. I...I can't accept it.

Do you go to a dentist and say "I had no idea you where going to check out my teeth. You should have told me" or "What? This car I am willing to buy is going to cost X amount? It is the same amount as the sticker price!".

Please, explain why you expect more than was promised.

Wow , what game were you following , they said from the outset this was going to be a two FULL faction game , with all the selling points. ( One could argue that they never said when ) It wasn't until last fall as the deadlines drew near that they began to hedge their bets an change the tune they were singing. This in effect is a single player game much like BF:BC 2 or CoD. they only difference is that the loading screens differ , if you're Klingon. At least with those other games I don't have a monthly waiting fee. Please prove to me where they said they weren't going to release Klingons ?

A year ago it was going to be a fed/kling on release. Last fall, when the deadline got closer, they said that it was only going to be fed. Last December they not only posted it on their front page, on the forumns BUT THEY MADE A VIDEO OF IT that they where going to release the klingons as basically an empty class at launch. If you don't remember or didn't read, that is fine. But it was clear as day to me.And before I buy anything, I read everything I can about it. But, for this, it had a video, man. The only thing more clearer would be a puppet show.


I am not going to prove it to you. I don't have access to the entire site because it is blocked at work.

in the end, what they said was that klingon content would be "spartan". what we got wasn't "spartan", it was "broken". that's fine, it will take them some time to fix things like broken pvp vendors, which is apparently a very tricky technical issue because six weeks in they're still broken. and they'll also be adding more content, which will also take time. that's fine too.

but it's unreasonable to expect customers to pay $15 per month to sit and wait. on the fed side it's easy to say "just wait, more content is coming." feds can say that because they have plenty to do in the meantime. on the klingon side, there's little to do while waiting except unsubscribe and come back later (or roll a fed alt, which many of the klingons have done).

the problem is, it is comparatively rare for a person to come back to a game once they've left. so by the time that new klingon content arrives, there will be relatively few klingons still playing, and relatively few of the klingons who left will come back to try it out, because they will be playing something else instead.

as for myself, I've reduced my subscription from 3-month renewals to 1-month renewals, because the first month of gameplay convinced me that I am not the type of customer that Cryptic is trying very hard to keep. that's fine, they can't please everybody and it's a sound business decision to cater to the majority. I don't fault them for it, but in the long term there's no reason I should continue to pay for it, either.

Vuk, you're a very opinionated egocentric individual.

Even if the entire klingon community of today leaves, there will always be klingon players. I know its hard to understand that you're not the only klingon players that could possibly ever play the game. You guys have every reason to quit playing your klingons. I played feds for one reason, they have more robust pve.

Whatever players leave today will be replaced by the players of tomorrow. If you don't like it, stop paying for it! Hopefully i'll get to stop reading the same posters rage drivel every time I read a klingon post.
