It is not; unless you fight idiots. But then you wouldnt even need cloak to win anyway... and they'll probably petition that you are exploiting a bug or two if you use jam sensors, or anything like that...

I have lost track of how many fed players I have seen screaming about jam sensors and scramble sensors as if its some kind of hidden devhack known only to the klingons. Starfleet's recruitment standards obviously slipped massively when they went for the whole hippy, wear any uniform you want angle.

I find this to be invalid since your referring to a point in time 100 years before this game takes place and cloaking technology has improved. In TNG and DS9 cloaking technology was nearly perfect which is why tackyon fields and other tools were needed to detect cloaked vessels.

I play both Klingon and Fed in PvP.

Firstly I dont bother using a Klingon ship class fitted with" battle cloak" as its not that much good in battle because you cant really get out of range before it wares off unless your very lucky.

Also Shields do not recover when you are cloaked.

As to this all Cloaked ships are vulnerable to Sensor sweep available to Sic feds so if your not in a group with a Sic Fed then its your own fault.

And Klingon ships are built paper thin so taking damage is a real problem.

----------------------------

On the fed side... most ships are fitted with Beams or Arrays than can shoot out at any angle so sneak attacks wont be that effective if you equip your ship correctly.

Fed ships have far better shields, most Fed Curser class ships cannot be taken down by one Klingon alone.

If you work as a team you can deploy mines that will counter any cloaked klingons

Shoot "Group FOCUS Fire" target on one ship.... unless every ship in your group is facing exactly the same direction which is unlikely that a single klingon ship will breach target shield if you do this

I find this to be total horse#%@!. I'm only Cmdr, so maybe it changes in higher tiers. I think thats how it *should* be, but in practice I don't see Klingons being "paper thin" against damage. Not at all.


On another topic, I think it makes sense that all players should be able to point and shoot at nothing. Shouldn't need a target.

I'm so glad to see all the kling's sit here and make fun of the feds QQing over fact that you ARE overpowered. The whole fact that you can cloak while doing an evasive manuever is in the cannon sense impossible. When you cloak a ship you have to take almost everything active offline or the generation of power would give you away. That means you couldn't scan the encryption data cubes in borg hunt while cloaked or when coming out of cloak be at full weapons ready, including the ability to uncloak... stun the opponents entire ship and then sit there point blank and rip open one side and tear through a hull and then cloak again all before he's able to move again. You wouldn't even be able to travel at a fast speed for giving away your position. I for one can't wait to see the tables turn.

this is mainly about some Klingon's ships ability to cloak, but I'll add...that the tactical operative kits are waaaaay OP, no one cloaked/invis/camo should be able to stand right next to another player and stun them or melee or 2 shot'em, yes. waaaay op....yesssss....this is OP...indeed...I can run circles around 5 feds using this kit on my klingon (solo), and give one heck of challenge utilizing it on my fed tact....(oh but the majority of Klingons can see invis' players anyways.)

Sounds like you are jealous. Join the fun and see for yourself. Until you fly one you really have no clue.

How many posts in this thread tell you what to do about a ship trying to cloak...shoot them especially with Torps.

Most Klinks don't battle cloak out of trouble anyway. They evasive maneuver and then hit full engines and gone.

We make fun of players that blame everything under the sun other than their skill, poor ship builds and poor skill selections. We pour almost all our points into ship combat, we don't use BOFF's for pve as we have no ground pve. We pvp all the time, you don't we are just better. We would crush you if we used the same ships you do to.

I do however agree with you on one point, firing should be closer to point and click. Personally I think changing the way weapons are fired might be balancing act the Federation is looking for. Anyone should be able to fire anywhere. If you want to fire into space then fire into space. If you think the Klingons are out there you SHOULD be able to fire around (Assuming they stop making us appear on the radar!!!!)

I wouldn't begrudge a lucky guess from a Federation Player or well placed Torpedo Spread.
ok as long as when the escort in your fleet runs into your firing arc and takes damage and dies from friendly fire lets give it a go
