Playing kerrat last night just getting my fed 10 had this one fed player in a lifer ship which I killed 6 times, pretty much one shooting on the alpha decloak.

He/she starts saying that I'm the problem with the game and the klinks make it no fun.
At which point I pm him/her saying its nothing personal but the ship he's in has weak shield and he's/she's slow to react to my bop doing an alpha strike on him.

Just wondering if anyone else is getting stick from the Feds in kerrat when they go boom!

My most recent "lulz" in Ker'rat involved the following.

Typical restart spawn camp.
Typical change in numbers that breaks up the spawn camp.*
Finding a Vesta that was involved in part of that camp engaged with the Borg. Ahem, decloaking and delivering the fatal blow.
The Zone complaint about KDF not wanting to fight 1v1 from the guy in the Vesta. Yes, this same guy that was moments ago participating in the restart spawn camp.
Finding the guy in the Vesta once again engaged with the Borg. Decloaking, killing the Borg, giving him a moment to heal, and then killing him.
Additional complaints in Zone about KDF.
The guy mindlessly attacking me at the KDF spawn because I've ticked him off, dying over and over to the other KDF that were probably scratching their heads while I just flew around in circles, and getting one of the fastest Kill10's I've ever gotten.

*Funny how that tends to work. Are you a Fed getting slaughtered by KDF? Wait 15 minutes. Are you a KDF getting slaughtered by Feds? Wait 15 minutes. Some of the best play in there, imho, takes place during the moments between those shifts where things are almost equal in there.

it's just BOP jelousy...


You see, your average fed see's a Bird of Prey and thier mind goes "wow, what a kool looking ship.." then they realize that the BOP is not a fed ship.

and when they realize that a well handled BOP is every bit as deadly as it is visually stunning, with... they turn into 9 year olds having a bad day. 9 year olds, with overly indulgent parents. Unfortunatly Daddy Stahl, and Moma "Geko" Rivera just refuse to make the BOP any easier of an opponent for them. They have to dig into the data base of exploits cheats and hacks to win.. or learn the games combat systems... and... how to fight thier ships. And they have to learn the ships...

When ever I feel I need to be entertained I go read the fed ship forums and such with the constant threads of This ship is OP, or that ship is OP, buff/nerf some particular class of ship, and my favorite "WHAT SHIP IS BEST?" (now personally I have a thing for KDF battlecruisers, but thats just me.)

Eventually they either learn, or go find another game to play.

I do miss the good old days a mate of mine had a science ship that would deal massive damage with feedback pulse (pre F2P) and survive the fight even with 3-4 Bops alpha striking him. Why because he had a great ship and looked after his build for those who remember him his name was (jacklehop).

feds moan all the time its what they do but here is alittle tip.

when you load into kerrat.

Turn the camera around and wait for the strike then pop a few shield buffs and the fight goes on after all thats not hard to follow now is it

To be honest... I play both Fed and KDF. I've found that for PVP MOST of the time... KDF is more fun due to the built in cloaks and battle cloaks. However... I do quite well on my Fed Engineer(my true main) and have no problems with Alpha strikes taking me out because I know how to play my setup and how to get the most out of it. Here's a tip for Fed players...
Science ships aren't weak... don't think they are... you're absolutely wrong. Subspace Jumper console is a GODSEND for PVP. Keeping Tactical Team up at all times is also a must... someone decloaks and alpha strikes you? They have to get through your absurb shield capacity x4 thanks to Tac Team. If you get hit REAL hard... Subspace Jump and Photonic Shockwave and Tractor Beam.... you just ended their Alpha Strike quite well. Birds of Prey don't have any true advantage persay when you know how to build your ship properly. I highly recommend doing some research about abilities and how they can be used both offensively and defensively. One last tip: Energy Siphon isn't so much a power drain from your enemy... but a power buff for you... use it like so.

Yes, many feds still do not believe Ker'rat is a PvP zone.

Yet its our fault when they come in expecting PvE and get attacked.

Its all moot now as plans to change Ker'rat are in the works and I bet dollars to darseks its to make the zone less PvP oriented due to fed outcry of us mean old klingons doing exactly what we are suppossed to do in the zone to begin with given its design and function.

I guess Kirk, Picard,Sisko and Janeway used the last of Star Fleets strong back bone up before sto came to be.

Whats a "Lifership"? To my knowlege there is no ship restricted to lifers.

He/she starts saying that I'm the problem with the game and the klinks make it no fun.

Poor playstyle, but thats really not your fault.

Just wondering if anyone else is getting stick from the Feds in kerrat when they go boom!

Getting stick?
And before you go ahead and gloat too much, you might want to dig around the forums a little... There are significantly more KDF than Feds crying over Ker'rat.
My name may say "PWE member", but I will never be.

Well let's be honest about a few things here.... as a Fed Sci ship captain of an Intrepid

1st- Klingons have superior ships with better turning radius and the battle cloak

2nd-Klingons can now push a button eliminating ALL space hazards.

3rd-Klingons have OP equipment like the plasmonic leech and the aceton assimilator ect...

4th- They nerfed scramble sensors so that the opponent can continue to fire on you instead of firing at his/her own faction.

5th-With the last patch Engineering Team 1 now clears Viral Matrix 3 so there is no way to placate a Klingon ship or thier massive spawns

The game has changed so much in the last year and there is no balance anymore so go ahead and yuk it up 19 klinks shooting a poor Fed.
