Thank Kahless he didnt come to the forum to cry about it like a beaten targ.
Ego erupts in kerrat chat as it happens, I just hate the forum whine.

At which point I pm him/her saying its nothing personal but the ship he's in has weak shield and he's/she's slow to react to my bop doing an alpha strike on him.

Just wondering if anyone else is getting stick from the Feds in kerrat when they go boom!
Nope when I have pissed of a FED and made them cry I know my ancestors are singing tales of my daring do in Sto'Vo'Kor. I'm a Klink its what we do.

As I said, I recall it used to be like that (with the dilihtium rewards, 1440 for every 3 runs, plus a piece of ship equipment) from what I recall. Especially since Kerrat had no cool down time that I can recall. After they mostly removed the large dilihtium rewards with the exception of the one that shows up every now and then, it largely gotten back to being balanced.

Unfortunatly Daddy Stahl, and Moma "Geko" Rivera just refuse to make the BOP any easier of an opponent for them. They have to dig into the data base of exploits cheats and hacks to win.. or learn the games combat systems... and... how to fight thier ships. And they have to learn the ships...

When ever I feel I need to be entertained I go read the fed ship forums and such with the constant threads of This ship is OP, or that ship is OP, buff/nerf some particular class of ship, and my favorite "WHAT SHIP IS BEST?" (now personally I have a thing for KDF battlecruisers, but thats just me.)

Eventually they either learn, or go find another game to play.

I'd never been to ke'rrat until i got dragged there by a fleet mate, and i could feel the Fed chat suck several IQ points from my brain, they're just little kids in there. So i was in my oddy, playing the objective when out of no where a transphasic torp boat kept on attacking me, and for some odd reason, it could cloak in battle *shrug* I'm at 30 HP, and he comes over my stern for another pass, i activate ramming speed and destroyed his little flimsy BOP, (for the record it was the default ship) and then he rages at me for killing him and leaves. I just avoid kerrat period unless i'm on my klingon now. The klink IQ is generally higher than feds.

It is astounding how most of the Fed' players do not even try to use teamwork, and I am a primary Fed' player!

It's understandable somewhat.

Due to the KDF's smaller playerbase and the obsessiveness required to keep playing them, the average skill level skews far higher than with feds.

Also Kerrat attracts mainly Fed PvEers and KDF PvPers (since Fed PvPers have the more active FvF queues), so there's going to generally be a big difference in skill level.

Hehehh

First - Where did you hear that? I kinda' hoped the Elachi lockbox started a new trend of creating new universals that can be used by everyone.

Second - If true, can't say I'm really suprised.

Can I just add that I was told by a little tribble, who heard from someone else long ago that the devs once said that c store consoles would eventually go to the other faction?

But seriously, I did once see a vet player say that the devs once said that.

Even if Feds ever DO get AAs in a lockbox, 95% of em won't know how to use it properly irregardless, then probably complain about it being 'underpowered'.

Especially if the devs fix it's CD to be 3 minutes like other stuff.
