WOW!

I just read the thread about the Galaxy X. Holy crow, that ship is a total beast. How are you supposed to even fight that?

It has, essentially, a freebie Beam Overload power. Sure it shares a global cooldown with normal Beam Overload, but that's not stopping you from picking up the normal power and having an extra boost every 2 minutes. The phaser lance essentially translates into an extra tactical power.

It has the officer power slots of a Star Cruiser, meaning this ship can have an extra heal that other Cruisers don't, or an extra support power-- whatever.

It also has cloak. It can equip Heavy Cannons like Escorts and Battle Cruisers.


This ship is essentially an Assault Cruiser + Star Cruiser + Battle Cruiser, all rolled into one. All it's missing is a console.

It's way OP.

I just hope you wake up the next day and find the Galaxy X was just all a dream/alternate timeline....when its mysteriously missing from your inventory.

Dev said it would be on Tribble next Tuesday

To be honest, Galaxy X is tthe most broken ship. Like a Vesvius from Wing Commander vs. the Victory.
Klingons get nothing to counter that beast

Heck, I've just posted in a topic on the General Discussion where a Fed is asking for the Orions to be a Fed race also. I mean haven't they "stolen" enough of the KDF already? Fed has playable Klingons already and now that Galaxy X.

I REALLY am curious how Season 2 patch will pan out because I'm growing more and more suspicious by the day about it when seeing the changes coming for the Feds. Episodic content for KDF is all good and well but if it's only like 3 missions, then what the heck is the point?!

So the biggest problem I've had with that particular issue is, I myself could never think of a ship to add. I'm old. My brain is slow, like a pakled. And I was just not seeing any options.

Then THIS THREAD got posted.

Blew me away.

All of the ideas are very Klingon flavored. Maybe there's some fine tuning and details that need to be ironed out. But as a whole, wow, that was exactly the type of suggestion/feedback I think this topic/issue needs. A concise, specific list of what to give Klingons that is all very very very Klingon specific.

I really dig the Referral ship idea:

Quote:
Referral Ship: General Chang's BoP that fires while cloaked. Make it look like the T1 B'Rel and T1 B'Rel Refit. Would be the same size as the T1 but same stats as a T5 BoP. Give it target sub-systems just like a science ship. As for firing while cloaked, give the cloak a similar ability as Jam Sensors but with no timer. Just like Jam Sensors, the higher the Aux you have, the more damage you can do before decloaking. If you're careful and have high Aux, you can stay cloaked.
That's what I call incentive.

Sure it might need some work. Some tweaking. But generally that's an amazing reward that I think would motivate just as much as a Fed-with-cloak motivates. And it's also something that is a very notable and fun piece of Klingon history.

Imagine quoting shakespeare when launching your torpedo from cloak.

Good stuff.

"Don't worry guys, things will get better with the 45 day patch."

Just keep forking over the money, month after month. Keep on waiting for results.

...and neither is it evidence of work. The pattern of past behavior is not encouraging. At this point, I hope the Klingons get some overpowered BS like the Galaxy X. Then PvP will become an empty wasteland except for the blessed few who have these special ships. Then, Cryptic's failure will be complete.

Fully agree.

The behaviour shown by Cryptic and the regular videos for Federation niceties paints one simpe picture.
At least no Dev showd up on the Klingon forum fro a long time to post anything.

Let's see... Klingons will be getting 8 storyline missions. Then there will be faction-agnostic missions. This means in Season 02, Federation players will not get any new storyline missions except those they have to "share" with Klingons.

And then there will be mostly faction-agnostic weekly episodes.
Do I want more? Yep. But I am getting something that I really want, and more of it on the Klingon side then on the Federation side. Sounds neat.

Yes, lets all celebrate the pittance and breadcrumbs they are finally allowing the Klingons to have.

...huzzah...

If anything, Cryptic's behavior has put me in the mood to make a Klingon.
