I refuse to belive that the carrier is the reason for KDF players to play and stay KDF.
I only play KDF and I have never owned a carrier, I fly the old reliable Hegh'ta and though she is a great
ship she is getting a little long in the tooth and I am in the opinion as many others are that it may be
time to revisit the handicaps that were placed on it at launch and give it a little boost in light of the many
new Fed ships that can do the same exact thing the BoP can without giving up anything.
I like the KDF because it's where the cool kids hang out and talk about fighting the system maaan.:p
In regards to the carriers, the Federation now has the edge, they carry the ability to not only deploy spam but to counter it more effectivly (point defense console) as well. I actually cant wait for the next lock box as I hope it gives us the point defense console but seeing the last two wonderful consoles we got, I foresee us getting the Defiants cloaking device universal console instead.:p
I carry a squad of Scorpions on my raptor (haven't used them yet), but they would't help against the torpedo cheese that Armitage puts up. Am not sure what would against 40 free photon torps every couple minutes.
But I've seen on many occasions what a good caitan carrier captain can do against a Borg boss ship. Simply AMAZING !
I have had the KDF for a few months and its mostly the same as the Fed, only the ship is better when you start, it Moves!!!! lol, and I am not the only one who think/knows
this.. when you start out on the fed side, your ship, is crud, I am not saying every one thinks that, just a lot of players do. I am still lvling my KDF toon, ( Jane ) and still every things almost the same as the fed side I say again. But yeah I am enjoying the Klingon side, the only down side though?
Every ones yelling at you!!! lol, Talk later.

Yes I have played klingon since sfc 2, thats when the blue plauge really came into being. The Kdf ships are far better than the fed counter parts. Once you go klingon you never go back. And we need our esg like the lyrans had, .
I play the KDF cause I see it is fun. And a different way to play compared to Federation. I do play them both. It depends on my mood for the day. The Fed I fire my guns more and like the story. On my Klingon however I like for the comp to come into hand to hand combat range. So I can start cutting them with my blade. And see how brutal I can be. Plus I'm happy to cruise around in the K'T'inga which is one of my favorite ships of this group. I plan to see how far I can take this cruiser. So the KDF is my way to challenge myself to a harder game play. I'm more a "weekend warrior" on this game. Last weekend was my big KDF playing. As I worked on getting R&D up to match my level. Now I can make my own more level weapons for my personnel and ship.
I recommend KDF for any new player. At least give is a try. I did and found out its lots of fun.
I'm one of many who felt carriers should've remained on the KDF side to give the two factions some uniqueness. Same can be said about sub-system targeting, it's not a warriors style to take out an enemies engines etc.
But hey, we don't matter, we are only 16% of the consumer base and thus do not matter to Cryptic/PWE. It has been stated over and over again by the higher up's and the constant lame excuse why no work is done for the KDF faction.
KDF - Doing more with less since launch! The 18% - Own it! - Be proud of it! - Make it grow! Disenchanted
