My observation is that the Klingon was developed to give the Federation player something to shoot at. This hypotheses seems to be widely accepted among the Klingon players. There is no mission content to speak of and this has taken its toll. Several weeks back the Fleet I am in as a Klingon had two pages of names on at any given time and now there are only a few on. These missing players are still around on vent but involved in other MMO elsewhere. When I speak to them they inform me that they are still on the game for another month to see if the devs do anything for the Klingon.
I have a BG5 and can never find enough people to do the BG5 mission; Infected or Cure. There for I find myself in a very similar holding pattern and am in my last month too. If Cryptic’s idea was to raise up a monster class as was done in the Lord of the Rings I feel you failed. Please do something for the Klingons while there is still some left. Oh yes, I hope the Romulan are not treated in the same manner.
Congratulations on grinding your way to BG5. Dispite my intentions to play nothing but Klingon I couldn't force myself to go thru that. So now , dispite my contempt of the Federation, I have a RA3, might make 4 before my subscription expires.
My Klingon Fleet (BoK) also had pages of players, but most have moved on.
It's really a shame, I planned on playing STO for a couple of years instead of 3 months.
well i gave them two mounth to sort the klingons out but no ther look cool but i like pve with a bit of pvp. in case anyone still cares this will **** up the fed cos no klingons and the only have fvf to pvp on.
It seems that the developers have forgotten the Klingons. All the C-Store stuff seems to be on the Fed side, but bridges and common items such as a respec. Like many here we cannot do the BG5 missions because there never seems to be enough of us on. If we waits for hours we may get enough of the KDF to do a mission. I think because the Cure, Infected, and others seem to be in a sector where the Borg is a common enemy, so why can we not team with the Pu'tog Feds to fight the Borg? This way we would not have to wait for hours on end to find a group or just log.
Indeed, Cryptic has promised Klingon Missions/Episodes/content for us ever since the game came out-and what did they give us? Playable Klingon Trill (wtf? I mean, Dax was a special case, she was an Ambassador in a past incarnation! I mean, the Rigellians would've made more sense since they did some dirty work for the Klingons or even the Ferengei since they would sell their grandma to anyone (includning Klingons) for a few creds. X_x) and missions you have to be a BG5 to play (and have a WHOLE team!). I mean, I love STO and can stomach playing a Fed-rat, but c'mon, WTF Cryptic, just WTF!? At this rate, I'll soon have enough WTF Cryptic for a Top Ten List. So far I got:
1: Mirror Universe Costume by buying some other game I don't want to play (for life).
2: Tutorial for only Fed-Rats.
3: Lack of Klink Content/Episodes/Missions.
4: Klink Trill.
5: A promo w/ a restaurant that most of the U.S., let alone the world, has never heard of. X_x
6: Surveying for a new playable faction when the other anti-Fed (Klink) playable faction is still incomplete.
7: Turning "crafting" into "vending" with "farming" mats, err, "anomolies".
There's more probably, I just can't think of any right now, plus it's a Top Ten, not Top One Hundred. XP
Sorry, I really do enjoy this game (all though it may be hard to believe from reading the above. XP), it's just I wish they'd flesh it out more before they released it. And ranting can make you fell better too.
Face it, it's over for the kdf. There are what, 3 or 4 good pvp'ers left on the kdf side. That is not enough to put together a group, and even then they are all dps'ers, which is not good enough to crack a balanced team.
Why would they bother with new content for what amounts to a handful of players when the federation players are not going to bother with it now even if they did, might as well go for a new faction and hope the 'freshness' of it attracts some players over. Roll a fed and just move on, at least fvf is supposed ok and you have content, not that i have seen any that i actually thought was fun to do, tho the odd quest has a decent reward which makes it worth suffering.
the forums are all but dead i have seen more posts and posters on swg and that game has been classed as dead for yrs what is left of the population moving to only a few remaining servers, there are what 20 or 30 people who post here with a game losing subs left an right, i wonder how many more will be gone at the resub cycle on the 5th
I really wish i could help save them. I roleld my Klingon after CB again but got so bored of it i havnt logged on in weeks. I really wanted this 1.1 to fix the Klingons. We Feds need them. whats the point of an RVR with no Klingons!!! However Cryptic is obviously doing what it wants with the faction which is simply to kill it.
It's not as bad as you guys make it sound. You have to give Cryptic some time to work on the missions. You can't expect them to release a whole game's worth of PvE content for a faction in the span of two months. They did what they could in the short time between Release and Season 1 and gave us Explore missions. You all have too high expectations for the speed and quality in which Cryptic can release these things. If you guys want it so fast, expect it to be bug-ridden and incomplete. I'd rather give them some time to flesh it out and make it worth of release. If they release it with poor quality, people on the forums will have a total fit. Damned if you do, damned if you don't, huh?
I have plenty of fun on my Brigadier General, and she still has a long ways to go before "completion"; I still have to equip her out with better gear and do the Special Task Forces. But I rolled her knowing full well what I was getting into-- a PVP faction without any PVE (this was before Season 1 came out). Heck, I knew there wasn't even a tier 2 option for Cruisers, and I stuck it out and had a lot of fun-- and continue to have a lot of fun. I'm sorry for everyone who was hoping for an engaging PvE experience with the Klingons... but even a few moments of research would have told you that wouldn't happen for a while. But it's coming.
At least some small additions of content (I don't mean Endgame content) would have been good to show that there is really interest in keeping up the Klingon faction. By now there are only warm words that at some time in the futuret here might be an update.
