Of interest to KDF

No mention of any new KDF ships prior to 18.5 min into interview.. Al notes the many ship varients needed for KDF ships.


HAH! Average fleet size is 25 players *players, not player characters*(target number) obviously these guys don't play KDF!!!

Nothing really in part 2 for KDF players..

Bummered out.

He doesn't know their names, but he knows they need more variants...

...Pakled jokes started to come to mind and I had to go for a smoke by the time it got 20 minutes in. Like several I know though, we couldn't get past 29-30 minutes in for the remaining 40 minutes of it. I might try again today.

Alot being planned, just not for us. Business as usual.

I was quite annoyed about when he spoke about the decision to put the Andorian battlecruiser they are also working on (go figure), in the cstore, because if it was in a lockbox, that means they would have to create a KDF ship as well - God forbid. They wouldn't want that now would they.

Please prove me wrong Cryptic - I have faith in you.

Its a simple sentence and its meaning should be obvious. Try reading it again. A few times. Slowly.

To be honest though, c'mon - they're looking at doing the Fleet Peghqu'...just waiting until it only pisses people off instead of really pisses them off.

Don't forget the Regh'Var... the Regent-like Fleet Negh'Var...right?

As for the variants, think the first will be the D'Gavama? The one that Dan let slip has been ready for the B'Rel since before F2P but never made it into the game? So the first one will be "Hey, look at the hard work we did for you guys! Er...a couple of years back."

It is technical in game, the B'Rotlh BOP Pets have it as their skin.

I want to see the M'Char skin for the Norgh.

Cryptic! Need some FREE KDF uniform options that you wont have to make? See Here.

Part of the problem is the hole they've dug themselves into.

They rely on fed ship sales but how do you tell your main cash base that you're releasing KDF cruisers with better turning and DHC enabled? Fed cruiser pilots already complain a lot about how inferior they feel their ships are compared to escorts, imagine if they really caught on to how much better the KDF battlecruisers are? Sure, they may be slightly less durable but they move better and punch harder.

And the most interesting part of it being that the Fed. cruisers don't actually suck, but they made them suck themselves with the DPS favoring game-mechanics they implemented.
