Well if Roms and KDF both complain about the cloaking bug, together they will probably make 1/3 to 1/2 of the playerbase. That bug will get fixed at least. There will be some bright side to splitting the Fed fanbase.
Together they will total about 20% of the playerbase.
Thing is, the cloaking bug affects all the fed ships that cloak. And affects Mask Energy Signature.
It hasn't been fixed to date. And has affected potentially 100% of the population.
The only reason I see the bug can get fixed is, there's a chance that they're going to be working on all kinds of code since they're making a 1 to 50 levelling experience for the new faction, a faction that will have cloaks. So finally someone might actually be in that particular area of the code.
But there's a much better chance they'll just break something new about cloaks instead.
