Meh. I guess if the verb in question suggests the statistical probability of self-inflicted grievous bodily harm, blunt force trauma to the nether regions, or ludicrous levels of public humiliation, sure, why not?

Well, you still get an "A" for effort.
Unlike whatever mandate the new Conjectural Corporate Communist Chinese Gentlemen Overlords(tm) are trying to invoke through their Dev minions.
It's like they're not even bothering to put up any appearances anymore.
See, it's not the getting fleeced part that rankles my jimmies so much as it is they're thinking that a nice coat of wax on a freshly produced cow-patty somehow makes it more palatable for consumption.
At least make an effort to pretty things up before putting on the lipstick and telling me to grab my ankles.
Seriously, no kiss, no KY?
This is the equivalent of telling Ned Beatty to squeal like a pig before going in dry.
What content? What is this KDF content you speak of?
KDF has 8 storyline missions.. Thats it 8..
we have no patrol missions to level with.
We can run explorations zaone and those missions for the mosrt work right but by now most of the KDF players have given up complaining about them, becuse they're still broken after over a year since the were added to the game, and by now we all know the work arounds. The Bug tickets have been in the system for over a year. There is not real incentive to bother with exploration zones anyway on tribble.
PvP nothing new to test, same wall exploit bugs as on holodeck on certain maps which has not beeen fixed yet.
The Path of the warrior missions are there, but not tied into the PvE cue. They're kinda content...kinda...
STF's were running STF's.. I am seeing lots and lot and lots of KDF in in STF missions... Is this the "high level content" your talking about? We're there, we're posting bug reports.. we're waiting on the next build. If theres any changes please let us know in the patch notes and we'll check 'em out.
You want us to test KDF content. DUDE.. put it in the game and we will test the crap out of it. CRYPTIC could have a full content progression in and working on KDF side, and bug free by mid december if it were here in front of us to test. We would love to do it. God knows we've waiting 2 yeaaars for the content. Any time baby, Lay it on us.
There issues that have been there since KDF was unlocked on tribble that still iare not fixed.
Its like the old comedy routine..
Your stupid and your going to die"
I don't belive you and I want a second opining.
Ok, Your Ugly too!
You could talk to some of the foundry mission makers and see if they would like thier missions turned into official content, credited and everything. You could prolly get by with giving them some C-store points, some extra foundry slots, and put thier name or handle in the opening flyby ****le screen for the mission.
There are several compleate series's of fan made KDF missions out there that could be used. Why dont you talk to these folks? If you don't have the manpower and resources, maybe we can come to some sort of arrangment that benifits everyone.
I want to congradulate you. One paragraph out of you dev blog posting has generated a tremendous response with the most important GAME KILLING BUG clearly reported to you. All things considered I would have call the lack of KDF content a pretty major bug that may ya'll might wanna get on right now. And I suggest you show some real flexibility in solving it. Because if there isn't progress ..serious progress made to redress this issue, its gonna turn around and take your heads freak'n clean off come free to play.
You have a lot of really phenominally smoking angry customers out here Mister D'Angelo, who all things considered find them selves insulted and entirely slighted by you blog posting and the message it conveys, and the inherent insinuation that we could care less about the KDF content and nothing could be further from the truth. What KDF content you have here on tribble works just as well as it does on Holodeck..
Talk to your internal QA team and I ma quite sure they can lay it out for you.
So bring on some content dude. We would love to actually test some content. It would be a unique and novel experience for we KDF players. In stead of hashing the same old unchanging in spite of two years of feed back crap.
You post a dev blog and slap your KDF players.. Consider this your slap back.
Bring out the great KDF revival early and we will test it.
As of right now the content is only ships, DOffing and the Academy that I can tell.
(And I do like them very much- Thank you.)
All the older content is the same as it ever was, except for a few new bugs popping up for some players.
I care not for rewards or shinies for testing. The Completed KDF is the reward I look forward too.
Mission wise this is true what others are saying. We have bringing down the house and the raid the fed shipyards missions which are fun and also the Fek'lhir missions which are also fun but apart from that we are identical to the feds in skills and generally available FE/STF missions. The ships are nice although not having access to our LG ships is again still not nice things to have taken from us.
The Academy does look very pretty but the floating disk above the vendors is something which i still cannot understand the purpose of or can see how it is even supported. I am thinking this is one of your modeling test pieces which got forgotten.
Doff system is superb and is currently seemingly the only way us KDF folk can get BoFF's without dilithium. can we have them back soon please?
Ship wise: The carrier controls are very nice but it would be nice if I could move them out of my general skills area and let them have there own bar on my screen
Consoles: Quad cannons cant really say how they are damage wise but look impressive coming from a Negh'var. Would be nice if they were allowed to be equipped multiple times especially since they are not top tier items.
Orion fighters: Other than being rare and looking different are they any different from To'duj fighters at all?
Power drain platforms: Not sure about pvp but can serious take out various npc groups by themselves
General observation: would be good for a new player to receive a message saying doff system is unlocked after bringing down the house mission when people try to enter the doff interface at creation.
I've levelled up a KDF to 51. Hated almost every minute of it.
Hated might be a strong word. I got extremely bored with it. I've done the 2 KDF missions available on the KDF side (sorry for the understatement in numbers). But honestly, you might as well remove the KDF from the game until you can live up to your promise of a complete KDF faction. Launching it like this will make new players run from the game. But if that is your intent, go ahead put F2P on Holodeck asap. The only thing I looked forward to on Tribble KDF side was to be able to fly Orion ships from the get go to LG1. Well that was impossible. First they weren't even in the game. Then when they were added you charged dollars for them. Yes we got a minuscule stipend to buy from the C-Store with but really, too little too late. Now I'm LG1 and tired of the KDF even more then before. You need to take all those Federation missions that are set against the Klingons and make Klingon versions of them. Like Starbase 24, Doomsday Device and so on. You have the story, you have the art work, you have the maps. You just need to modify them so they would be from the KDFs point of view, which is far more important then changing the crafting system.
Port over a Klingon toon and waste EVEN MORE of my time doing grindy, boring, not-fun, tedious, repetitive, unappealing, soul-sucking stuff just so you can validate a slew of unpopular changes to game mechanics?
To this proposition I have a three-word reply:
Last word, subject "yourself."
First word, imperative "Go."
You can probably figure out the verb in the middle.
I'm still only little more than half way through tier 1 of Marauder, and Military. I'm having very little faith that I'll reach tier 3 before F2P goes live. (Doing mostly 1-2 Day missions).
Meanwhile on my Fed, tier 3 diplomacy knocked out before I even hit VA. Kind of skewed in my opinion. Is diplomacy even being considered one of the DOff reward trees? I mean, it's so easy to come by and farm, it seems kind of absurd and unbalanced for FED vs KDF for time spent and reward.
