Im my eyes.. I will belive it when I see it. I am getting Lifer regardless (hoping for a discount on it soon). But still... the Empire needs work. And I telling yah if you gonna bail Cryptic, please note I wont be able to trust you many more. I have seen the history of the Empire and a lot of lies/postpones/promises have been badly shown though the years. I understand the ship problem with the point if not many=not money thing but you gotta remember... Quality=Quanity=$$$=Happy KDF Players=more KDf Players=+$$$+=More KDF Content=More KDF PLayers=++$$$++= et cetera.
My statement was more saying that I believe there are people out there, with money in their hands, ready to throw it at Cryptic if KDF is in a more polished state. I have been a player since day one of closed beta and first flight inside a closed box called Sirius sector block (closed beta testers will remember that day). But I did suspend my sub after all these failed released for KDF... I do not recall any other instances of a game development talking of such features for so long and saying "sorry, there is no cups in the kitchen, can't released KDF feature lambda" this time, it will be soon...
So, all I am saying, I will wait for May and see, no hopes or expectation... my money is on the sideline, ready to go in their pockets. Who else?
I would be happy to see more ships (cough Fleet K'Tanco cough), but personally, I think the KDF is fine as it is. We have pretty much all the same end-game content anyway...and I certainly have no use for a bunch of low-level crap. We play KDF to skip that nonsense, we don't want MORE of it.
