It is unclear if you are trying to insinuate that they haven't gated the FE's by level on the Fed side or not. But just for clarification's sake, I am fairly certain that FE's are gated to both factions at the same level points. I could be wrong.
Not yet. I can't get The Vault on anyone until 31 (Captain 1), while on Fed side, I just ran them on a pair of LT6s. They claim to be planning on doing the same to Fed side, but they never even announced the change to KDF side before doing it, and only mentioned it after the uproar it caused.
