You know what's Great, People who can Name all their Ships/Captains in their signature. I've Leveled 8 KDF to Max level, I was Happy, but I'm not casual. 11 days is all a KDF toon takes w/o a QxP weekend for me to level from 6 to 51. Only about 5 days with a QxP weekend starting 2 days before......

I know the KDF lack PvE content.

I know the PvP Ques "Estimated Time" is a liar. Unless it was meant as Days/hours.

I would rather Kill Players, if there were any left...

What was I talking about again.......

"Do you (KDF) want the f'ing patrols?"

You bet your sweet *** we do. I would be something to do!!!

Here is what KDF get to do on Holodeck....

Make toon.. do your starting run around First city stuff to learn your way around First City. Go to Khalass expanse.. Kill fed AI.. Also encounter zones fro True way, Romulan and Borg. Go to exploration zones.. which consists of the following missions..

Assult a base, Scan consoles in a base. Defend a base. Assult, scan consoles in, defend a ship.
Assult, scan consoles/items on a planet. Kill x domes on asteroids in space and thier defnders.. Kill x groups of ships in space. 10 basic mission with small variations in the exploration zones taht it there.

8 Story line missions. Borg DSE's Path of the Warrior missions, Devidian, Romulan, Breen story arcs. Undine missions. a friegter rescue/kill and the stalite repair mission. And then there is the PvP content which right now is just not done by many players due to the lack of interest. and once you drag your sorry butt up to level 45 there are STF's which as of yet must be done on Holodeck with faction pure teams. Oh yea we do have a 2 or 3 fleet action type things we can do.

Adding 2 or 3 KDF sector blocks of a totat of 6 to 9 sectors along with the current sectors with KDF territory in them could add an additional 50 missions easily for KDF players to do. Having the missions cycle up as redoable every 2-3 days with scalling enemies and rewards would more then double the actuall content availible for KDF, beside simply giving KDF player more to do. It might be grindy, but for we KDF players it would be a refeshing change of pace to actually get some damd content.

We need the PvE content just to get more players interested in KDF play. For the long term we need a multi sector Persistant Territorial combat.

Considering all the effort that is put into Bridge officers I still do not understand why there are no Multiplayer PvP maps where Captins go down WITH thier away teams to battle other Captains and THIER Away teams. It has never made sense to me from a story or canon viewpoint why we players are going into PvP combat without our Away teams of Bridge officers. This is not Elite Force.. We are ship captains.. why are we not doing ground combat with other ship captains and our crews..?

The game is about commanding a Starship and a crew.

There is so much "missed the boat, missed the point, never got the point" of a good and unique MMO mechanic that Cryptic has gotten so close to but never done in STO that are easily within the capabilities of the game engine. If you can go into an stf and have 5 players battling against wave after wave of Borg, then why cant you expand thos very same Ground actions to have Capatins with thier away teams doing the same thing? If you can put 100 characters both AI and players on the same map then give us our away teams we've invested so much time and energy in to fight by our side doing STF's.

One of the things I've seen during the F2P on Tribble is comments by Dev's that they want to really get players to concentrate on just one character. Seems to me that several opportunities have been missed to encourage that through game mechanics since launch.

But either way.. The topic is KDF content. So yea we'll take patrol missions KDF side and happily. Because we do not have them now, and never have. Any content KDF side would be an improvement.

Just seems that anything Cryptic plans for the KDF is veiled in thoron distortion fields, and duranium shadows. Throwing KDF the occasional bone since launch, while pandering to the Fed players. At what point are they actually going to start making KDF story driven missions? Does this mean that the Romulan and Cardassian factions are delayed indefinetely?

With regard to the Doomsday mission, if you can make Feds into Klingons. Why not a couple of mission, to make Feds and Klingons into Cardassians and Romulans. Have a series of mission, where you are acting behind enemy lines for Starfleet or Klingon Imperial Intelligence. We get to play around with their ships and get to run around as if we were members of those factions. Would give players something new to play with. Plus we get immersed in the goings on in those factions as well.

Then again that doesn't surprise me as I have often found the UFP to be a hypocritical entity founded by those whom wish to have a peaceful co-existance with others as long as we "others" follow thier rules.

Its simple really, what Humans had done to each other and some continue to still do in the future, with thier wars and petty self-concerned motivations to grasp power without th effort to attain it, is cease to do it to thier own kind and instead use as a backbone of thier desire to do it to the other races.

What? Your a warlike and Violent race created from a dangerous world that pushed the survival instinct to the limit? Well we can't have that, says Star Fleet and they will wage both a political and convential war (but thier not agressive- thiers is a peace keeping force) and play the Universes Police Force, telling all how they are doing "it" both wrong and how they should be doing it.

They are a meddlesome and irritating race of self indulgent peoples and I can only think Feds survive as a species becuase the Universe doesn't want them in the after life.
I can't blaim the Universe iether, I wouldn't want to pass into to STovokor to find they had arrived and changed it from feasting, fighting and fun to Anger managment courses, basket weaving and emotional inner bonding all while hidden behind a viel of socialism.

The truth is that all we can do is wait and see what happens and ignore such stupid dribble as, "we (Devs) can't justify the effort since Cstore sales are so low KDF side" or "Thier is not enough interest to justify it".
Of course thier is interest in the KDF - we just are not buying anything until we know there is a place for us.

So I wait.
If it doesn't happen I can always go elsewhere, assured that something will come along that has more respect for their customers other than whom has the largest wallet.
Largest wallet?? Funny never saw Cryptic as a size Queen until STO and I've followed them from way back in City Of Heroes.
*wistles and cheers* tell like it is my brutha!

So much for Season 4 being "The season of the Klingons" huh?
Just remember, they raised the starting level of the Klingons to give them time to more fully develop the Federation...Ahem, I mean the Empire...yeah...sure they are...
Nice that they change the crafting, making it more difficult, take away the 'Pengs (on tribble since the new crafting implemented) add Dilithium to it, then revamp the Fed patrols to give better rewards so the Feds won't be so dependent on crafting to get decent gear.
Yep...can't wait for Season 4 and all the new Klingon missions.
Wait, they said content, not missions...oh noes...

Sadly all we can do is wait and test evidently.
DOffs seem fine - they DOff quite well
New Ships, really enjoy them except for minor bugs
The KDF Academy, looks awesome kinda small though with no real purpose but thanks none the less.
Honor Guard costume pieces, look so cool it should have a fear bonus proc.
New KDF revival parity content - waitiing waiting waiting.....

Regretably with what I saw on tribble I'm less the hopefull for the KDF.
It becomes a major Pay factor as the many ships will be C-Store only what will drive many many players away from us and into the arms of the blue side, which have much more stuff for free.
Additionally there is nothing on the horizon of the "massiv KDF revamp" that we we promised.

So sorry, but I have just lost my hope oon KODF AGAIN, we are just getting glorified monster play coupled with C-Store cash cow options.

Worry not my fellow Klingons, for Cryptic has a plan...

When the game goes F2P and we get that huge influx of players that they (Cryptic) are expecting (praying for?), we will have enough KDF players to justify them actually making some dedicated KDF content.

Whats that you say?..........The new players can't play KDF side?...............Good point, thanks to Cryptic's clever planning, any player joining the game after F2P will have to spend considerable time (and money Cryptic hopes) levelling up a Federation character before they even get the chance to make a KDF character.

After getting attached to their Fed character, should some of these new F2Players remember there is (supposed to be) a KDF faction and want to try, they can then create their new character. At which stage they will find all the new ships are C-Store and they have barely a dozen missions to do before they run out of content.

Fast forward six months.......we find the KDF percentage of the population is still in single figures and Cryptic states that they are abandoning any future plans to develop KDF specific content due to lack of interest.

The future is indeed bright for the KDF.....bright red with blood spilled and anger.



Disagree with my vision of the (Cryptic) future? Then please prove me wrong Cryptic, please I beg you, prove me wrong!

Yeah, there are the dark days that I'm thinking as you. Regretably there have been no prove for more KDF only content, only warm words from Devs and modeaators and that since more then a year. I will only believe again if I get hard trustworthy evidence.
