I've been waiting for non-Klingon KDF-Specific Uniforms for quite some time. I've been waiting for KDF story arc missions for even longer.

And now that they're here, all I see populating the forums is rants and vitriol about how Cryptic ignores Klingons and hates Klingons because they put a SECOND cloak on a Fed ship ... and because Klingons don't have diplomacy focused missions.

Yeah, I'm cranky.

The things I've been waiting for to improve my klingon's gameplay experience are being buried by the same nausea inducing wave of churlish complaints that have been around since february.

The PVP complaints are getting hard to stomach right now since no one's even flown a single retrofit ship yet.

There's nothing Cryptic can do that will satisfy KDF people. They're too dug in. They're in these little virtual reality bunkers armed with cans of soup to sustain them for a long-term posting campaign. They forgot half of what they wanted from Cryptic. And completely forgot why they wanted to make a KDF side character in the first place.

If season 2.0's Klingon focused content serves only to anger and upset you ... it's time to play a different faction. Because nothing cryptic does will appease that frustration.

People have been waiting a lot longer than you, and entire fleets left when Cryptic announced that the faction would be mainly PvP; and the population has been in steady decline for months now.

No, now that they are here we find out that we got a mere handful compared to the Federation and possibly even less actual missions than the Federation got; when the entire time people have been asking to be on equal or near equal terms as the Federation.

The addition of Federation cloaking is just like throwing water on a grease fire.

Many of these complaints have been around since before February, you just missed them since you weren't here for the closed beta (not being mean as I say that, just making a point that you didn't see the forums light up like the Fourth of July when the announcement was made).

True, we haven't seen them yet so we can't really judge too much. But I do have to say that with two commander slots in the same profession, good PvPers will become unstoppable with those ships....

We haven't forgotten what we wait, we've gotten tired of asking for it and being ignored while more and more content gets brought in on the Federation side.

It's not that we're getting some content, it's the lack of content that we're getting. Cryptic would have made a huge PR coup to only release Klingon content with season 2 and save the Diplomatic Corp and refits for 2.1 and 2.2, but instead they threw it all out there and showed everybody the reality that the Federation was getting just as much if not more than the Klingons.....again

the current T5s have an extra Boff slots, and will probably be balanced out in other ways.
so they won't require special abilities, since the retrofits will be weaker ships in a side by side comparison (ignoring the special abilities)

What people though? You can't be counting the entire fleets that left can you? They LEFT! They are no longer waiting. So adding up the time, there's even a good possibility I've been waiting longer since I didn't leave. I really don't see what you're getting at by telling me entire fleets left in Closed Beta. Game wasn't even formed properly yet and people left. What of it?

Well, we are atleast getting a clicky for fleet support at 50% hull damage instead of it being random chance.

I do wish they'd add more tray bars, though... my 3 trays are full.

Those that stayed behind......

Of the active and recruiting fleets that are left in the faction, one is still focused on PvE content. Here is a link to a list of the remaining active and recruiting Klingon Fleets: Here

With two on-spec Commander consoles, I'd say the Escort definitely has a better spread than prior escorts and the sci and cruiser are at least as good BOff-wise compared to the old options. It's the other stats that will need closer comparison.

I really want to see your face when you see the saucer separate

(although to set some early expectations... the saucer "returning" isn't perfect ... we had to compromise a little because it is really freakin hard to get a docking sequence to work when you are flying your ship around)
i really have to say this, firstly congrats on the promotion. i took a break from STO and only came back a few days ago, and its a totaly diffrent game after such a long time away from it. im glad to see your answering ALOT of questions it gives me, and alot of others more confidence in what you guys do. communication is KEY,and thats one big things you guys got going right.

and from launch = no saucer sep'. to only a few months down the road and its allready on its way. great work.
