a question for the guys who play Blue side exclusively (but anyone is welcome to chime in...)
Never flown that ugly piece of pseudo engineering that Klinks call ships
As a Fed, with the release of LoR, will you be taking your fed-aligned Romulan into FvF pvp, or will you only fight Klingons as god intended?
Probably yes. Always wanted to fly D'Deridex. But it will something I do "from time to time". I think my main ship will be Fed one (Patrol Escort/Vesta (as battlecruiser) for tac, DSV/Nebula for sci).
If you ARE taking Warbirds into FvF, what do you think the impact will be ON FvF play?
Is this positive, or negative?
Utterly, completely and totally negative. Warbirds (or better to say: decloaking alpha and battlecloak) will kill PvP. I will play Warbird only because I like this ship and will do it from time to time to fly the big, green and ugly.
i want to make my rom a kdf, but feds just get more access to pvp
i can only hope that theres a ground swell of new kdf players, but i doubt it. my 2 kdf want more matches to pop! and not vs farmers. other then the first few missions for them theres no incentive to play them at all. the romulans are getting all the attention and fan fair. the kdf are so middle child now it hurts.
oh, and fvf got ruined a long time ago. when the federation got thier own carrier pets and ships with hangers. now with roms, theres really no difference between FvF and FvK. can my kdf just get it over with and join a fed fleet now? cryptic should have not given the roms the choice of siding with the federation, only the kdf. the kdf faction would have been saved, not damned

Well, as there is finally no real difference of what players can expect in FvF in comparison to FvK maybe Cryptic can finally get rid of the former. At least then I don't have to wait for half an hour until my PvP queue starts. My Romulan will be KDF alligned because that is where my fleet is and I would love to get the chance to test him in PvP outside of Kerrat.
However, I predict the Feds will find a new reason why they stay away from the evul Klingun queue. The leech console will probably considered our new 'I win' button from their PoV as soon as they find out that the battlecloak is not as great as they always thought.
Yes, where will the feds run to now that the evil Battlecloak is among them and can not be eacaped?
Whom shall be the scapegoat for all thier complaints now that one thing that they avoided in fvk play is now stuck to them as glue?
STO is very much an Adam One culture and completely inarticulate about Adam Two.
AND, the new toon won't be the only toon I play with. Levelling will be by doffing, and doing the "necessary" missions because of the rewards. I expect it to take 2 or 3 weeks. So in time the Reman is levelled, I also have a clear picture which ship to choose.
To an extent, I think it's likely for some that it will come down to what's in the next lockbox, eh?
Emission Seeking Torpedo/Plasmonic Leech
The Torp added to the box because of the cloaking.
The Leech added to the box because of the lower base power.
Cause face it, with the lower base power of the Warbirds - AKHG/Leech will have an advantage over MACO... folks have already been complaining about the lower base power in exchange for the Battle Cloak/Singularity Abilities. All those folks that haven't followed it who would have complained are likely to complain...
