Hi guys, I'm a fed and I like the immersion of this game in a lot of ways. I like the fed vs klingon aspect of pvp and I tend to have fun fighting you guys in space. I know i'm a bit of a whiner here, but I completely stopped queuing up for ground missions for one reason: I never ever see any klingons.
No I don't mean you guys don't queu up and I don't get to play. I mean I've gone through dozens of queus without ever once seeing a Klingon, Gorn or really anything other than some monstrosity in the alien creator. I found against a team that was almost entirely human once!
Really, the super short midget thing or the stalky legs tall skinny aliens are getting annoying. It's not funny, its not helpful, it just makes you look stupid. Slider bars give you options, abusing slider bars by seeing what wierd stuff you can make when you slam them all the way to one extreme or the other isn't original, it just makes you like everyone else.
So if you "Klingons" are having trouble with your ground queus, I know I and a lot of friends are refraining from it for exclusively this reason.... Q'pla.
Why make a klingon other than for RP? Or if you're weird and and care lots about ground combat.
The only reasons I see for making one.
RP? You must have am much more active imagination than mine. Most RP goes on over on the Fed side. Theres no storyline at all on the Klingon side. I guess if you just role play loving killing the same fed ships over and over again you could get some kicks from it...
I have two Klingons, and both are of the Klingon species. Be'toQ is my BG5 engineer and Khel is my LC4 tactical officer who I am leveling slowly in hopes that the 45 day patch will bring new experiences to enjoy.
It's a personal preference for me because I like the Klingon species itself, and from the canon, I will NEVER make an alien race just so I can maximize the silly advantage an alien gets (thanks Cryptic) or even one of the "conquered" races like the Nausicaans. The KDF would NEVER have Klingon ships commanded by anything other than a Klingon, and no position on a ship would be had by any alien species of any type past menial/manual labor. The reason for this is the Klingons believe every race inferior to them and they don't trust easily. They might ally themselves with the Orions, Gorn and such, but they would never allow these species to hold positions of power in the Empire.
