I went back in and held my own for a good while, played 15-20+/- PvP rounds yesterday and it was only one group of fed cruisers tanking around in a few games, I held my own in the other matches. Maybe "I'm not that good" but if thats the case PvP should rank players in comparable groups per match. Regarding the matches in question, all the klinks just left as it was no game, I stayed in trying to at least be a mosquito and harrass them but even then they destroyed me within seconds EVERY TIME. Thats not a game. I'll keep trying but I am apporaching 700 days and consider myself at least a decent if not a little above average player, I played on advanced and elite alot before going into PvP. If that is the way PvP is then no wonder most people don't do it, its nothing more than a slaughter for points from a few who've evidently figured out how to nuke anybody. I try to keep faith in STO, the only game I play, but I am starting to understand what "cracks" and "P2W" means. The game really is no fun when you have to run a spreadsheet to play in the top tiers, thats insane.
Boo Hoo.

The majority of Feds deal with this every time they PvP.

I haven't played in months but tried a few times in the last couple of days, since I was forced to respec my character, I lost the original settings I had and before, I could hold my own at least half the time, now, as it is, I can last only by keeping engine batteries on hand so I can escape.

As it is now, I doubt I will PvP after this week....

My experience is that the Klingons win... Always...

I've fought in just about 100 PvP arena matches, all fed vs klink, all with klink victories. In fact, it's unusually to see more than 2 or 3 fed points in these matches. I know that I myself am new to PvP and it's more subtle than PvE, but there are serious balance issues. I should have seen at least 1 fed victory in 100 matches...

To be honest, that's probably more to do with a lack of experiecne dealing with alpha strikes.

However, yes, Klingons are overpowered and that's before even looking at their P2W consoles. They have been since the game started.

That's just a shame to read.

I can take a beating but one shot? gimme a break!

I've got some important news for you guys...

This is a game where power selection / ship piloting / teamwork > gear and individual play. Every single time. Just a thought...

You need to ask some of the fed players on this forum for some tips, I'm sure they can give you plenty. Get a kling tune, level it and play against a good fed, llike most on this forums. Then you will say Feds are OP...

I already have three Klink toons (well five technically), one of each career, two of which have access to battle cruisers, carriers, BoP's and raptors. The ships handle so much better and are so superior it's insane. The only time I find there is any difficulty is when the opposing team is a premade. Even then, it can be a walkover. In fact that's why I stopped playing KDF so much, it's just so easy. No wonder I don't see any of the good Fed PvP regulars in FvK.

Negh'Var - Same BO stations as a Gal-R, way better turnrate, can equip dual heavy cannons, cloak, has more tact consoles then a Gal-R. So, way superior to the Gal-R, but still an RA ship that doesn't cost C-points.

Vorcha Refit - My personal favourite ship, but it's still unbalanced. Same BO stations as an assault cruiser, vastly superior turn rate compared to any T5 cruiser, can equip dual heavy cannons and has little problem maintaining target even when it's a good player escort, can cloak. The slightly lower hull HP is meaningless to any good tanker and I find I can easily deal damage and tank without much effort.

BoP - Meant for hit and runs due to thin shields, but equipped correctly they can be as tanky as any escort, if not more so.

Raptors - Nothing really to say here as it's rather balanced (even without the defiant class).

Carriers - Lordy, where do I begin. Super thick shields, high hull, good breadth of tanking abilities. Fighters, BoP's, syphons and drones that spawn as soon as you finish off the last bunch. Tachyon drones and power syphons will render most ships impotent. All this while at the same time your trying to fend off other ships. Less said about the Aceton field and tricobalt spewing frigates the better. The Negh'var and Vor'cha refit? Forget them, they are well and truly balanced in comparison to this type. Fight a team with just one and you have a chance, more then that though and you are screwed (unless the carrier captain is second rate at tanking and there are some). The only problem I found when flying them is they take a whole map to turn when flown conventionally, but then you let your fighters and drones do most of the hard work.

Then there's the P2W consoles and equipment. It's bad enough the Feds have AMS, but it's nothing in comparison to vent theta radiation, aceton assimilators etc. Yes I can avoid theta (cruisers aren't so lucky), but it won't save me from the next BoP covering me in the stuff as soon as my APO runs out.

Battle cruisers and Bird of Preys I can just about forgive. I do wish fed cruisers generally had the same punch as the battle cruisers though. The Carriers and abundance of overpowered P2W equipment on the otherhand...

The ship issue is bogus. They are different but hardly over powered. It's so much easier Klink side because more often than not you face a bunch of Feds who are half there, selfish or just inexperienced with builds barely suitable for PvE. Carriers are just dumb for the spam issues and the funky UI issues but Feds aren't lacking in that department.

On the console issue I agree. They are poorly balanced, have no global cool down, and you give up nothing significan for what you get. Not to mention that the counters to Theta and Drain Drones are weak or broken.

# 189 PVP is os corrupted now.

I don't get the purpose of PVP now. It is not fun for the average player. It has become a haven for teams of computer geeks who know how to crack game codes. They blast through everyone's hulls and shields, killing their opponents in seconds yet their own shields and hulls don't take any damage. There should not be secrets out there for a game that everyone is supossed to enjoy. The Jem'Hadar shield use to work but since this last patch it doesn't regenerate at all and torpedos go right through it. The Devs definately nerfed it or bugged it. Now I have no defense against the teams of game hackers out there harrasing normal players.
