Back in the early days KDF did not really have any content other than pvp. So you were mor ore less forced to pvp your way up to 50. That resulted in much more experience on the average KDF player.
These days things are different. But you still need a fed char first. Also there are less quests on the KDF side so you might still try to lvl a bit with pvp. While I don't think the difference is a big as it was I still have the feeling the average KDF player has more experience than the average fed.

Also there might be a disadvantage concerning ships. Now while the federation offers top escorts and sci ships it kind of lacks cruisers other than healers. The most popular ship from the shows is likely a cruiser, the enterprise.
Building a fed dmg cruiser is challenging. Most people don't want to be a healer or supporter. Most people don't even heal their teammates. So many feds sit in their cruiser, that can't support and can't do dmg and are pretty useless.

Now I sorry to hear that your enemys quit the arena. There should be a leaver penalty but I don't think there will ever be one. Most of the time I see feds quiting but there are black sheep everywhere.

Not really. It doesn't suck any worse than being TB'ed to a stand still.
I'm just glad somebody, like yourself, has come at the issue by making a anti-spam builds rather than just biotching endlessly about the drones that are slated to be fixed.

The answer is very simple:

The bad guys are always skilled players, our Fed cruisers in an offensive role suck, the KDF has more efficient attacking ships with battle cloak and universal Boffs, the average Fed cares nothing for crosshealing and teamworking, and...most of all...we Feds don't have hot Orion chicks...evil Klinguns!

I figured a really simple solution! i only que against other fed players now, all in all it seems much more fun. in my head i just pretend they are alternate universe federation lol

i won the last 3 matches in a row. the last match was very close 15-14. Pvp seems fun again.

As a klingon waiting for pvp seems to take forever, now i see why! no wants to fight the klingons lol

Well done, Fed comrade! Improve your combat skills by training with other Fed players...but when you're ready, then try the real challenge against the KDF!
You may lose, but at least you made ​​them suffer a little...
And don't listen to Bitemepwe...he's an evil Klingun...one of the worst...

Only thing evil in this thread is the fear of the KDF becuase its unfounded and causing players to lose out on part of the game.

Everytime a Fed team plays against the KDF the fight can go iether way depending on the teamwork involved and the skill of the players.

The KDF has not secret advantage or game enhanced buffs or any special "thing" that makes them better at PvP and any fed who uses such excuses to rationalize only playing FvF ques is only fooling themselves in to thinking that its more balanced.

You see...Bitemepwe is a real evil Klingun...
First of all we Feds never afraid of you evil Klinguns...unfortunately we don't have the Cruisers suitable for fighting you as seen in the tv movies...Kirk simply doesn't exist in this game, period!
We fight disadvantaged, we know that in this game the best Cruisers are KDF ones, not to mention the Bop targ packs who terrorize the Fed rookies...
But it doesn't matter, you evil Klinguns don't ever conquer the Galaxy because we Feds prevent it!

While I mainly play KDF, sometimes I do play FvK on the Fed side too. It can be anything from 0-15 to 15-0 depending on the teams. If your pugs aren't cutting it against the other side get a team together and it should provide a more fun match for everyone. It's not much fun to be part of a stomping for either side involved.

Its this attitude that lies at the base of the issues of teh Feds in PvP versus the KDF.
You believe your at a disadvantage before things even start and it is not true.
