From the start I've been saying that I don't believe the Klinks are over powered. With the explosion of terribly unbalanced Consoles I've been of the mind that Klinks aren't innately over powered but they do benefit the most from broken mechanics. Now though I'm not do sure they benefit all that much more than Feds who have plenty of their own. Mostly I think a lot of it goes backs to what the problem has always largely been. Your typical Fed doesn't fly the right ship, use the right balance of abilities, or have the right mindset to be successful. The most basic advantage that Klinks have over Feds is that the faction itself calls for damage and so they fly to do damage. I realize I'm over generalizing with my assessment but the list could go on well beyond my lunch break.
Anecdotally, when a team of five Fed Tacs consist mostly of Cruisers who can't combine their healing or damage to equal that of a single Escort something is wrong and it's not the Klink's fault.
Klinks have the best consoles...and stupidly OP Aceton Assimilators, Tachyon Drones, and did I miss anything?
Yeah... it doesn't actually take skill to run a klink team.
Whether people want to admit it or not, but between the Cstore console spam they have, and the worst part the Carrier pets (which you can throw out more, than can be killed) alot of the skill that it used to take for the KDF is gone.
Just load up on your favorite console cheese get 3 carriers and auto win.
I'm done with FvK. Cryptic ruined it with the crap they gave the klinks. (I'm also done with KvF cause frankly I don't like to auto win because my team mates opened their wallets)
Unfortunately, STO community doesn't have the "arab spring" moment like what happened in Eve Online like a year ago.
For those who do not know, Eve Online's community went berzerk when an employee shared info on major Pay2Win intentions - similar to what we see here in STO with IWINs for just opening wallets. After major losses in revenue and some kick in the nuts, the company came to their senses and Eve was somewhat "saved".
Wish to stick to STO but it isn't easy if things continue on this route.
