Any efforts you want to make on the Fed side would be greatly appreciated!!
Just refer them back to this thread - I'm going to concentrate my time on the KDF since I spend more time there anyway and honestly, the KDF have had a much harder time of things than the Feds have.
That's not to say that the issues we're discussing don't affect both factions but the removal of the Fleet Marks reward isn't the whole issue, it's just a symptom of Cryptic ignoring what its players want in favour of 'metrics'.
If we're going to appeal to Cryptic for a meaningful dialogue and transparency in its handling of issues that affect the player-base, I think the KDF is the obvious place to start
I'm going to be writing to a number of the big KDF fleets to try and get them to support us - wish me luck!
I'll bend my bow to your will, sir! You have my blade!

Many in the community are still unsettled by the depth of the cutbacks to Dilithium rewards and the increased emphasis on grind that was introduced with Season 7 and this latest move is seen by myself and others as a further step towards taking freedom of choice as to how to enjoy this game out of the hands of the players.
These issues aside, the KDF as a whole is still in dire need of more content and Dev attention - I won't go into specifics here since we're all aware of where Cryptic/PWE has failed the KDF.
So I have a simple request - Cryptic has inadvertently given the KDF a means to peacefully protest when the Federation has none - the 'Disenchanted' title that's given as a reward for completing the Fek'lhri missions.
I'll be changing the title on both of my KDF characters to Disenchanted until such a time as Cryptic/PWE shows itself to be addressing the concerns of not just the KDF, but the player-base in general and I appeal to all of you that feel the KDF and the game deserves better to do the same.
I've been playing STO since launch and I find it very frustrating that the Developers have done so little to bring the KDF up to the same level as the Federation players. I dabble from time to time with a Klingon toon so I see first-hand just how little the Klingon's have in the way of content compared to the Federation side. STO is making a killing on the cost of lockbox key's and needs to take some of it and sink it into creating content for the KDF. You have my support.
@aegisprime - if I'm not on feel free to send me an email

I've read many of your posts and they've always communicated so well your frustration with Cryptic and the state of the KDF, but also the hopes you have for things to get better - thank you so much for your support!!
