On the FED side many from our fleet form teams and join instances. Its not uncommon to have an Admiral, some Capts, and a few Lts all playing the same instance. However we tried to team up and play together on the Kling side and we found that we could only play together if we were the same rank. Not sure what the logic for this is.

1. Why can feds team up and play whatever but Kling players cant? Isnt the point of an MMO to team up and play together?

I really hope they fix this or we find a solution. A couple of us have higher level characters and the rest of our Kling fleet has abandoned us and moved to Fed only play...all because we cant play as a group at dufferent ranks.....Just seems counter MMO to me...

Didn't realize Feds could do that. They cna do this for PvP? Or just certain things like enemy signal contacts, Crystaline Entity and Borg hunting?

Yes, teaming up is the point on an MMO, but as far as I know STO is limited to teaming with your own tier - excpet for the three previously mentioned missions which are really PvE.

Sorry I wasnt clear...Kling PvP is limited to Rank.. as it should be..I was talking about PvE..."defend the empire" missions and such. feds can team up and do pretty much anything together...Ive had Captians share Capt missions with me as a LT. I think the Feds only limit PvP to rank.

Fleet Actions are currently limited to same rank on Fed side. DSEs are not. Missions can only be shared with higher ranks, i.e. a Lt. Commander can share his lowbie mission with a RA, but a Commander can't share his missions with Lt. Commander.
In exploration, cross-rank teaming is possible, but the enemies will be the higher rank's level, so a Lt. Commander teaming with a RA5 will get crushed.

My fleet has done tons of fleet actions with diff ranks....encounters too. As I said.. my FED Fleet has done everything but PVP together....Sometimes the enemy is atthe high rank level.. but thats fine. I want the same option as klingons...

And we have never been able to do ANY missions as Klings IF we were different ranks. We have never even been able to enter the same instance as diff ranks.....

I stand corrected. Now we can do explore missions...never usd to be able to though...might have been some odd bug. We still cant do anything else together..sadly.

Now that you say it... I once tried to do a warzone with someone 400 points below me (Lt. Cmdr/Cmdr), and we were unable to access the same instance (though 'no maps available').
I haven't tried warzones on Fed side, usually I'm the only player anywhere near the ground zone and if I get lucky, I find 1 or 2 players to team on the map. I shall try that.

You will discover many things on the Klingon side are different than on the Fed side.
Welcome to our world.
Now that some bored Feds are trying Klingon and discovering the unfair differences maybe they'll start posting thier discontent and Cryptic will finally take notice as the number of complaints increases.

I just think is odd. All I ask is that game play options that are all about playing as a team are the same for both sides. No wonder so many have left the Kling side....who wnats to MMO all by yourself?

Certain things are limited to playing together in tiers because they are PVP oriented. Obviously you can't mix tiers when queuing up for some PVP. Also since 'Warzones' are PVP, they are tier-enforced, even though there's a PvE element. This keeps the high levels from coming to the low level zones and just wiping up. Fleet Action are tier-enforced now, though they didn't used to be. As of the Season 1 patch.

For everything else... It isn't tier enforced, just like with the Feds. There's not any imbalance here. As a Brigadier General I've helped people with Defend the Empire missions and Explore missions who were a tier below me. This is exactly the same as it is in the Fed side. So I'm not sure what kind of imbalance you guys are talking about.
