Hello! I am General S'kaa of the Gorn Hegemony and I am here to tell you why the Empire needs attention! If you just going to bring this down, go back to the FEDs and stop bugging us mature people who honestly just want more for thier money here on the Empire.
Well here is kinda a double sided thing. I will break it down into sections.
PROMOTION SHIP SELECTIONS
Ah yes, the wonders of the small selection of ships that are actually free. Let me see... ah Yes , Raptor 100% for Tacticals, Battle Cruiser 100% Engineer and BOP 100% Universial. And the main problem here is 1: Selection for all you get is they same ship beefed up and 2: NO SCIENCE VESSLES!!!!!!! The only free one you get is at LvL 40 (BG) and its a carrier! I mean sure carriers are good but to have to wait 20 lvls just to get a Science based ship is just sad!
Ah yes.. this too. Here is a General Idea... Last ZEN Ship? May 2013. Last Fed Ship for ZEN: December But there is more... with this fact in mind, KDF is sparce on LG Ships. 3 Regular, 1 Pack of 3. FEDs = 8 Regular and 2 Packs of 3 So mostly KDf = 6 LG Ships and FED = 14 LG Ships... THATS MORE THAN 2x THE AMOUNT! (This is NOT including other ranks)
And we can not forget that new ship comming out this week (2/17/13>2/23/13) on Federation with (OMG) Side Facing Weapon Slots. On that note, very unfair to KDF.
Well to make it short... some or most KDF ships are nerfed! Borstaqu is one (See talk on page 2). And I know there are some other ones as well that got into the deepest part of Grethor for Nerfs (For Gorn, Being with the Great Father)
FYI the only ship the KDF has received in the past 2 years was the Hoh'sus bird of prey. All others have been copy/paste versions of ships made for federation and slapped onto a different ship model for the KDF ...with minor tweakages.
Fleet ships do not count as 'new' because its again a mere copy/paste with minor tweaks. I'm talking NEW ship designs. In the likes of the armitage, the vesta, the yellowstone, etc. The Hoh'sus was really the only new ship made for the KDF that provided *some* small break-away from the standard ship design (we gots escort with 4 tac consoles! OMG!).
Now the federation is receiving another freaking overpowered escort with unique design (broadside) and the kdf gets... more empty promises.
It would be really nice of the devs if they could hold off on their federation bias and at least have the balls to make a unique KDF ship and release it alongside the Fed unique ship WITHOUT THEM BEING COPIES OF EACH OTHER.
