KDF is in the same bad shape as before.
In certain terms it is even worse since it es exploited by the Federation to quickly farm dilithium for their faction.

Being a former Fed Troll i have pretty much reversed course of late and being posting hard about the need to do something for the KDF - i would say that is a pretty big change.

Still Have not gotten an answer from Mr Stahl about my Idea to inform new players in game with a big screen announcement when then become eligable to create a KDF character. It's a simple thing - however - it may take some players of the path to the end game Fed money machine so I am not sure it will get done.

I do so love this idea.

Can it also play the Klingon Propaganda cutscene?

In that regard, since I first arrived here, I have witnessed no improvement, but meanwhile, the tutorial has gotten more obnoxious with no method to skip it like the Fed tutorial, and Engineers have been nerfed. So there's your decline update.
If the game were a closed ecosystem, with the players sealed inside, and no way in or out, this would hold true. The devs, on the other hand, represent an outside force acting upon the game. They are expending their energy to counteract the contant entropy toward which the game would tend.

The KDF faction is vastly improved since launch; there's no denying that. At launch, we had no storyline missions whatsoever; deep space encounters and PVP were all we had at the time.

It still needs help to bring it closer to the state of the Federation faction, but I'm confident the devs will eventually do this. I'm just getting tired of waiting, and it gets especially frustrating every time I see a new Federation ship in the C-store, with nothing being added on the other side.

To be honest, even with the new Lock Box fluff, I am getting so bored with this game that tonight I am going to download and try out SWTOR which is now F2P.

The KDF has been the only thing holding me here and I log in only to do some dilithium grinding and converting into Zen in case the Dev's ever decide to do something about the KDF. I doubt they ever will. So should have never gotten that lifetime membership.

There is hope for the future of the KDF. It sounds like season 8 is going to give us a boost.
That means that in the next 4-5 months or so the KDF might receive more material (all of this assuming, as Stahl said) on how well season 7 does. Our job, as customers, is to make sure that the devs know that there is a consistent demand for KDF material.

The fact that we just received a new science ship (albeit a lockbox one) attests to the devs responding to the KDF need for a true KDF science vessel. It is movement, but at a snail's pace.

Sidenote: I for one hope that majesticmsfc does not give up the fight. He is such a valuable voice in the KDF community! I know what will inspire you: some good old fashion pain sticks. Come here and let me inflict you with much glorious pain!!!

I think you'd do more inspiring with a heat rock sauna than painsticks, in this case...

Sorry I just realized I wasn't clear on why I posted to this thread. It was in reply to being the redheaded stepchild. I really wanted to believe in the game as a whole and KDF specifically. But just canceled my sub at the end of Nov. Reasons?

1) Total lack of anything remotely KDF oriented development. Granted they have a lot less options to work with than Fed but still. Everything I'd seen felt like a half baked attempt.

2) PWE. Though I came after F2P started I stayed because I looked into cryptic. Needless to say I didn't do enough or PWE would probably have kept me away. The idea of playing a REAL game run by a company that's setup to run like Farmville just disturbs me for some reason. If I wanted a dumbed down game I'd play Farmville or other iteration of the same thing

3) MMO Burnout. POST WOW I just can't stand the whiners in games anymore. I guess I'm just old but when every day brings a new post whining about how they can't get their shiny perfect mission because some person with imagination and creative thinking decided that a Tac officer in a Sci ship was a pretty good combination. Personally my favorite was Engineer in a BOP Loaded up on Engineering and Sci BoFs but that's me.

So I'm pretty much done with MMOs which saddens me. I really thought there was a future for them but until we as a species quit trying to get dumber and start thinking again I'd rather not deal with masses anymore. Starting to regret all I spent on sub and getting my oddy plus various other things like more char slots so I could load up my Klingon side once I fell in love there. For a casual gamer there just isn't any point to playing MMOs anymore as they've been totally taken over by the people willing to spend more money on trinkets for an I win feel but the same people aren't willing to spend for a $15/mo Subscription. Oh well I guess it makes sense to them.

There's another thread down that had some rather biased against KDF questions for Salami and it's clear that the P2W and other forces trump true development and gameplay anymore. So there really isn't a point as P2W has replaced true subscription games that you spend years and a few hours at a time to develop. /rant off /communications closed

You still get a red hud. Friendlies are still red on the red hud. Enemies are red on the red hud. Objects are still red. Its all red. I hope you enjoy red.


Klingon hud is still the worst hud in the history of video games.
