Eventually you will be able to play a Klingon character to General with PvE alone".

I'm i the only person wondering why they were not? or why the Expanse missions did not just simply auto level with you since they can be done solo?
I'm not saying they are not working on the problem now but seriously, why would you miss something this easy to throw in?
The following are some ideas for Cryptic to begin stemming the losses of further Klingon dedicated players.
1) Introduce a Game Title for all Klingon General level players. Reward their dedication to the Empire. This title should only be available to Generals who leveled before the next update of PvE content.
2) Include some special item for General players. A Bat'leth or other cool Klingon weapon or Costume change.
I'd love to see the long coats that are worn at the High Council made available to Generals.
3) Announce the intention for full Klingon Episodic content.
4) Annouce a purely Klingon update targetted for the next 2 months.
5) Annouce the intention and timeframe for the introduction of limited consentual PvP with territorial implications.
6) Announce a competition to write an Klingon Episode open to all Klingon Captains and above.
Do you have any other suggestions?
Putting this a bit back on topic...
I really like the idea of BG5 Klingons getting a special Blue Bat'Leth for their service to the Empire. BG Klingons already get a special uniform option in the mantle that unlock at general (I think it is under the sashes section of the uniform customization screen).
I cannot beleive you have been here longer than me because if so, you would remember last fall cryptic saying that they where NOT GOING TO INCLUDE KLINGONS ON RELEASE. A month later they said they woudl release them with the bear minimum. And what do we have? The bear minimum.
You have no right to be shocked at this. I...I can't accept it.
Do you go to a dentist and say "I had no idea you where going to check out my teeth. You should have told me" or "What? This car I am willing to buy is going to cost X amount? It is the same amount as the sticker price!".
Please, explain why you expect more than was promised.
He doesn't understand that creating a faction is difficult, and that Klingons will receive more in future updates.
He wants to be dramatic and pretend the sky is falling... He'll quit, join in 2 months after the Klingon updates have come.
I wouldn't try and convince him, the lack of intellegence is getting in the way at this point.
Nobody in this messageboard can read. That "ask cryptic" is 3 weeks old and not one person who has posted "doom and gloom" seems to understand that it is coming.
Um, we read the message all right. "Doom and gloom" aren't coming, they are here.
That "Ask Cryptic" has been analyzed closely and consists of 6 parts fluff, 2 parts non-answers and 2 parts promises of more non-specific "stuff" at a later (unspecified) date. You should go back and reread it a couple of times, with a critical eye.
WE DON'T TRUST CRYPTIC TO DO THE RIGHT THING. Especially after that Federation (with a bone to Klingons) 45-day update.
Cryptic should be kissing Klingon butt, not the other way around!
Hope this helps with the argument, it is a re-link of the article with a cut / paste referance to klingons:
STO.nl: Just last week it was announced that the Klingons are more of an additional advancement path for players looking for PvP combat and that they will not have access to any robust PvE content. Can you explain why this decision was made?
Craig: There are tough decisions that have to be made when you get close to launch.* We felt that other parts of the game would have lacked if we tried to hurry along the PvE portion for Klingons.* If the community really wants more PvE content for Klingons then it is something we will definitely look at adding in after launch.* That is the nice thing about MMOs is that they are constant work in progress and you can add things in that you couldn’t fit in at launch.
