Okay, so it's been a couple weeks since I played my Klingon alts. When did they change Cloak to look like CO's crappy Sneak power?
Were there complaints about actually seeing an appropriate Cloak? Were there players who didn't know where their ship was because of it? Really, why was this change even considered, let alone released live?
I can't get a decent Cloak screen shot anymore. Sorry to say I hate the change. Hate it.
btw... i tracked down why this wasn't in the patch notes - it turns out the fact that it feels "different" now is because there was a bug in a related system having to deal with Klingon color tinting. When that got fixed it turns out it corrected an issue with the cloaking FX.
After talking with the FX designer, he confirmed that the way it is now on Holodeck is how it was intended to be from the start.
