# 1 So how are klingons now?
01-16-2011, 03:46 PM
I left the game not long after the VM nerf in protest of the lack of klingon and pvp content and my beloved Joined Trill having never made a KDF captain in release, only fed sci/sci and tac/esc captains.

Only just resubbed and have made myself a new Joined Trill KDF engineer, hurray!

Now my fellow KDF enlighten me...

Is it no longer monster play?
Are there enough missions to break up pvp and nebula grinding to a bearable amount?
Has pvp been improved?
Are these new Aegist/Borg sets required for pvp?
Are raptors still naff?
Do the feds still stuck at pvp?

1. No idea what you mean
2. There is now other things to do (missions every 10 levels, sorties, couple other things including the weekly episodes that come out as series.)
3. Define improved
4. No (even though aegis doesn't take much to get if you got tons of EC)
5. No
6. That's argumentative.

Last one was a joke :p.

Monsterplay is from Lord of the Rings Online, where the bad guy faction could only pvp and was a simply sideshow distraction to playing the free peoples.

Improved is, are there new maps? Improved queues (less 5v2/3 stuff).Less stuff like old viral matrix and reverse shield polarity.

Sounds better at least than how it was.

Well honestly yes the feds do still suck on the most point :p

No, there is more content that you can do without even touching pvp if you wanted too to level. The sorties are actually quite a nice addition and can be done every 30 minutes (and there is two that'll take you longer than 30 to do one at a time).

Queues are quite improved so the 5v2 has gone down to the point I've never run into it. (Think I once saw 5v4 but thats due to someone disconnecting at a bad time). VM is pretty rare and RSP got knocked to only lasting5 seconds with a shared cooldown so it's used as the "OH CRAP IM GONNA DIE" button like it was supposed to be.

1) It's still monster play.
2) No. And dstahl gets mad and yells at people whenever they bring it up.
3) If you left that long ago I think you'll find that PvP in STO is a LOT different than you remember.
4) Some people think so. I don't PvP a lot so I'm not qualified to answer that.
5) No.
6) Yes. New threads calling for the devs to 'nerf Klingons' are started at least once a week.

1. Not really.
2. I believe yes. I am also balancing with RP and Fedplay though. Might be different if you focus on KDF only.
3. In some areas.
4. Depends on people's skill. They do give a noticable edge.
5. Not really, but compared to the Bird-of-Prey they feel kind of redundant.
6. They've gotten better (some Klinks play Feds, some Feds play Klinks now), but some never learn.

1) No, that's not to say there's an abundance of content, but give the weeklies another year and it should have about the same that Feds launched with. course, the Feds get the weeklies too, but you know, I'll take any bone Cryptic throws me.

2) Almost, but we're not there yet. There are 8 Klingon specific missions, 10 missions that came out as weeklies (2 sets of 5 each), multiple dailies that came out with those, and the sorties in Pi Canis. We also get some of the Borg/Undine content in Gamma Orionis. Like I said above, give it a year and there should be enough to do 1 story mission per level like the feds are able to do.

3) Cannot comment, I don't PvP.

4) See above, I think not.

5) I could answer you if I knew WTF naff meant.

6) Can't personally comment but there are lots of threads calling for nerfs to Klingons, so probably.

As far as content. With the Daliys, Defra-Eta,Pi Canus, I think I can get two levels in two hours. Which I think is respeciable. Plus you can replay the Featured Episode Series, there are a couple that you could do in the Devidian sereis that would take no time at all and are fun.

My current new Klingon is a Commander and as yet to do Exploration or PvP. Did a few Empire Defnese, but just the "introduction" where you get a crap load of XP.

Well I'm halfway through LTC5 and it's definitely much more fun than when I went klingon in beta, pretty comparable to the fed experience, but I know this is really more like Tortuga at *** launch than a complete thing. Ty for opinions. Anyway naff

Don't forget that the Foundry should hit in the near future, potentially providing more KDF missions than you can hope to do in a lifetime.

Oh, and there's KDF crafting now.
