StormShade, if whoever said there will be content is really in the pre-planning phase remind them of the community.
Not in the sense that they should talk about the stroke of each pen with us.
But even though I've only been here since Jan 2010 I've seen people post their ideas and concepts for new missions, new campaigns many of which were beyond the scope of the Foundry so I find it unlikely they've been "used up" in this fashion.
Look them up, see what ideas can be translated into stories, into campaigns.
If nothing else this untapped potential should give you a much larger pool of ideas you could use.
Please don't let it go to waste.

Cryptic Credibility isn't a high currency Klingon Side.

Also, we have become jaded. We do not believe because we are told to anymore. We need to see.

This does not mean we will stop being Klingons. Only that we will be sour and mistrustful.

Sadly, that Short Term Roadmap Devblog only seem to give fundation to our reservations.

No Klingon specific mission content for another three months at the very least. (unless they are pleasant surprises)

But what is three or six more months compared to all the months that has passed before?

Absolutely no mention of KDF content.
No surprise to me. Cryptic has given up on the KDF long time ago.
I won't trust any word for "KDF revival" until I see very hard evidence point.

Good lord I was already down to begging Cryptic to listen to us and give us at least something new to do, but that Dev blog changed my mind radicaly.

Yeap ... We are stubborn Klingons, and you hit the nail on the head.

Hard to believe? Yes...

But stick around. I've got it on incredibly good authority that giving some much needed love to the KDF will be being served up.

I know you've all heard this before, but one of the things PWE really beleives in is a strong KDF. They realize that in order to make that happen, they're going to need to invest some serious resources into your faction in order to bring you up to par with the Feds.

The day is coming when you'll be able to level a new KDF toon, starting at level one, with KDF Content.

Thanks,

Stormshade
Bring IT! bring IT! We will test it!

man, this line moves slow.

It's hard to believe, but it really is true. If I hadn't been assured of this by so many people of higher pay grades than my own, at both PWE and Cryptic, that this is the case, I honestly would not be here saying it again. KDF content is almost the "third rail" of STO. If I wasn't confident it was actually coming down the pipes, I wouldn't be touching it AT ALL. My rep in this community is taking enough of a beating without needing to touch that rail.

Thanks,

For what ever it is worth I personally play Federation .. exclusively. IMHO some of the things in place for the Federation "to do list" that really should be placed on hold. Those who are playing in thye Klingon faction have been far more than paitent than any other MMO group I know of.

I respectfully request that as much as possible the KDF be given priority. I think it goes without saying that some of the Dev team really WOULD like to make this happen. Someone is arranging the "things to do list". (Note: please remember the old story about "crying wolf" too often).

This is not meant to be a rant, nor another aimless post of just another faceless player, but rather a request from one businessman to another. It really is a SOUND business decision to invest more time and other resources into the KDF. We can no longer debate over HOW we got to this point in STO with this faction in such disrepair and for all practical intent and purpose is disfunctional. What IS VERY MUCH needed is resolution to the matter at hand.

I believe you in that there are plans on the board. IMHO those need to be a matter of reality.

Thank you

12/20/11, my response to the mistreatment of the Kdf faction, it seems another company that I will not name here knows how to properly support both factions...AT LAUNCH

Well... that logic does make sense. I can see where you're coming from, and I can grok the third rail analogy

Thanks very much for the reply!

Its nice, just needs a purpose other than social zone.
Though I would've loved a cool-looking longcoat.
