# 1 Klingons Rule PVP...Still
08-13-2010, 04:39 AM
Even after achieving the highest Fed Rank and equipping with the tol shields and weapons, I am no match for the Knlingons in pvp. Is anyone else in the same boat? Anyone aware of any plans to rebalance?

doesn't matter what epic gear you kit your ship out with. If you aren't up to the task you will get yours handed to you regardless of what faction you are on.

PVP, even at max level and with all the gear equipped (actually, even moreso at max level with all the gear equipped) is a test of skill. Until we get the queues that allow one on one dueling, one of the primary skills tested is teamwork, your ability to work with others on your team in the given scenario. If the rest of your team hangs you out to dry, blame them, not the 'OP' Klingons. If you're wandering away from the rest of your team, blame yourself.

Yeah I'm a LG1 Kilink and I die all the time. Don't hear me complaining about over-powered Feds.....
I make all sorts of silly mistakes, thats why I die.
Check your skill set-up using the drop down window in the character Skills UI (upper right corner)
Make sure you have not wasted any points in any skills that don't effect any of you abilities and even do a respec if you need too. (plenty of guides in the forums on skill-point spending)
Check your ship loadout and see if you have any conflicting abilities due to cool downs.
Most importantly , just try to have fun and don't worry about being the best.

PVP has a VERY steep learning curve.

I assure you it's not because the klingons are over powered. It's because most of them know how to play together, support each other, use good individual and group tactics, AND make the most out of their builds.

Against that, a little fed that just runs against them expecting to go pew pew will go boom, it's not rocket science.

You'd have the same chance against an experienced Fed group, but those are rarer because Klingons for the most part only have PvP content, so that IS what they do.

Also, keep in mind that Klingon players (and frankly, other players too) get rather upset when every 2-3 days a new person goes into pvp, get's blown up to bits by virtue of not having a clue what they're doing, and then immediately thinks the best course of action is to run to the forums and ask for nerfs instead of actually learning to play. So, here, do take your pick:

- escorts are overpowered, they deal too much damage!
- cruisers are overpowerd, I can't do enough damage to them!
- klingons are overpowered!
- Fed players are overpowered! (seldomly, but it does happen that new players roll Klingons)
- science is overpowered! They stripped my shields!
- cloaking is overpowered! If we had cloak WE would win all the time! Oops.. we have cloak now and still we always loose.. huh.. err.. I know! Klingons are VERY over powered then!
etc etc etc

However, if instead of the typical "nerf this!" post you start asking how to become better, you'll find people are a lot more receptive, and will help you out a lot more than if you try the whining cry for nerfs approach.

Personally I think we should make Klingons run cargo ships in pvp

You can already do that with the private queues.

They are not overpowered. Its just teamwork. Many of us only group people in Vent. For example, my fleet wont even recruit a person that wont get on Vent because he would not know what we are doing in PvP and might cost us a match.

teamwork & Vent > purple shields, weapons and etc

To many posts state that klingons are overpowered so I must be wrong. Please nerf the klingons because I can't take it anymore.

Same here. We don't recruit members who don't use TS. It's essential to win.
