It seems that since the last patch that the Tier 2 pvp has greatly improved in terms of balance. At first I found, as many others, that Tier one was heavily balanced towards Klingons and Tier 2 heavily balanced toward Federation. Since the last patch, however, all of the Tier 2 games have been close matches with klingons and federation winning in relatively even amounts.
Now I suppose that it is possible that the Klingon players suddenly managed to get much better at the same time as the last patch.
However I attribute it to the hard work of the Star Trek Online team - credit where credit is due.
You missed his point... the devs did NOTHING with the live patching affecting PvP.
Yesterday the KDF was wiping the floor with the Feds. Today we've been getting pummeled into the dust until only very recently. A bunch of factors went into whatever success or failure you had in PvP. As for me, my BoP's catchphrase today is: Being Focus Fire Target
