If Cryptic decide to release a ship of the discussed configurations without seriously sitting down on the KDF - I will need to move on to other pastures.

Maybe it will be 5 REAR slots and 2 forward!

Thanks Steve! Hope you doing well mate, but my short lived rant did not see the light of day. It melted under the sun of the arena haze

I'm also in the 5-fore, 2-aft group. It just makes sense after the recent Ask Cryptic.

I just hope if it is going to have 5-fore weapons it's not like an overblown Chel-Grett, with high HP, good maneuverability, and an 8th weapon slot. Woe betide anything that gets in its way should it also have 4 tac console slots, as would make sense for an escort.


Slightly off-topic... if it does get 5 weapons upfront, how long will the wait be for the KDF getting a version?

From the podcast, I would assume there are no plans for any KDF ships on the horizon.

I would hope to be proven wrong, but I doubt it.

Yeah, that completely blew my mind - but that's the impression that I got as well. Admittedly I still haven't gotten past that 29 minute mark, but in that time - well, there was just the mention of the potential moneymaking to be had off a Fleet Peghqu', the Fleet Assault Negh'Var, and the confirmation of even what Stahl had said about there being additional KDF costumes that exist but are not in play or that need to be created.

Compare that to the Kumari and everything Geko went on about various Fed ships - even a Founders of the Federation doohickey (yeah, who doesn't want to fly a Pig Cruiser? /meh)...

...it still kind of blows my mind. I honestly thought the K'Vort would be coming with the Ambassador (cause you know, that was the KDF ship in the show). When they said they were going with an original design and did the somewhat original Kamarag (which honestly looks like the kind of thing they did with the Jupiter/Typhoon that Geko used as a reason for never having the ships in the game) - I thought okay, when they do the Kumari they'll do the K'Vort. Kind of have that balanced thing going for it...

...when they did the Friday screenshot and said the specs would be coming this week.
...with what Geko said in the P1 supplemental.

...yeah, I'm guessing no K'Vort - much less any new KDF ship any time soon.

Ody 3pack...tada, Bort 3pack.
Vesta 3pack...tada, er....oh well.
Kumari 3pack...tada, why bother?

Why bother making ships for a "dying" KDF when they can just spend all that time making a whole lot of new Rom stuff so that people are wowed and go "omg cryptic is amazing!" when they pump out Romulans?
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

But they've already said that the "dying" Romulans won't get anything as they spend time making stuff for the "dying" Cardassians that won't get anything so they can make stuff for the...
