The problem with Fed pug and some fed premades is
1) They group together, ergo, they can't fight one on one.
2) They are all in cruisers and usually sci's so they can't do spike damage.
If you look at the kdf, if they aren't in carriers or battleships they are at least half in BOP (more after the patch that fixes cloak). Great burst damage.
If the Feds get into their escorts again and learn to fight one on one they will start to win.
I didn't say its all mighty. I said its a "free" advantage in PuG environment. Cloak stops being much of issue in top tier organized pvp, where good healers can counter the sudden spike...something pugs usually cant...especially in lower tiers.
I'm sure pretty anyone with BoP experienced their alpha killing off the ship without it even using single ability. It would hardly be possible so easily without cloak.....although some people explode fast anyway....
