As the title says, our faction may not be on equal terms with the Feds, but what we have is soo much better. I'm talking about everything, from ships to the player races and the art style of our bases and tech. The KDF fits the needs of this game so much better than the Federation (99.9% of all MMOs have combat in them and involve a war of some sort).

Our basic, non z-store ships ALL cloak, load dual cannons, turn better and have higher crew than their Fed counterparts. Staring at lvl 25 (?) isn't so bad, it means you get to the endgame quicker and are more experienced, while this does make your Fed a throw away alt you only need one to be lvl 25(?).

Most of the Fed cruisers are crap, even fed players admit this, I've flown many ships and found my self happy in an Ambassador class, it's almost an equal to my fleet corsair.

i agree, if you look at the consoles that we get from the zen store compared to them ours are way better. personally i am happy with a bop; i don't need some fancy ship with some bugged console that doesn't work.

They do have some great ships, especially escorts, and few others.

Still I'm enjoying the KDF faction, and I love my fleet corsair.

Yes we do need one of those, maybe in photon form, since according ENTERPRISE, photon torpedo tech was Klingon to begin with.

What do we need a wide angle torp launcher for?
Aside from the mobile starbases (Borty, Voqy) our ships are usually maneuverable enough to get in firing position.

I'd rather see a heavy photon topedo that fits the giant launchers on some of our ships.

Hehehehe... KDF soooo much better than Fed...

My Fleet Tor'Kaht on my KDF out-does even my Fleet Imperial on my Fed side. There is no comparison between ANY Fed cruiser and the Vor'cha family.

Our only weakness: lack of science ships (barring the Gorn ships, we don't have ANY dedicated science ships).

But we have better Carriers, better Destroyers, better BattleCruisers (we have them for that matter), and we have Birds-of-Prey. Alas, due to how sprites are designed, our raptors are at a disadvantage in turning wars, but who cares, they're still better XD.

End of the day, my KDF racks up more kills, deals more damage, and is just more fun.

Q'apla!!
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

I honestly think that's more "Pilot" than gear, to be honest, though I will concede that the Tor'Kaht's a sweet ride (for a Cruiser), and the Feds have nothing in the same class as the Bird of Prey (Kind of like how we have nothing that really lines up as a Sci ship-our "Fleet" Gorn Sci ships are roughly equivalent to Feddie "Free" sci ships...), but...

I've seen you run, both on ground and in-space, and you're good. Most Fed players aren't.

I suspect that's got more to do with your kill-rates than any gear options.
"when you're out of Birds of Prey, you're out of ships."

Look into Vanilla PvP if you're tired of the endless pursuit of grind, utterly unbalanced selections of geardo-inspired traits, and generally unbalanced and careless 'development' made mostly to turn this game into a second job.

Newsflash: KDF ships are no longer 'quality'.

The federation receiving the best and unique cstore ships consoles for free has destroyed 'quality'. In return we received their trash consoles.

All other ships KDF has received in the past 2 years have been copy/paste of federation ships. Hohsus is the only real kdf ship we got without it being a copy.

To see that KDF players are relying on free event ships and lockbox ships to add diversity to their anemic ship lines is beyond pathetic and only shows what a poor game design this company has.

I'd rather have a 45 degree photon torpedo that did twice the DMG and would fit in line more with the KDF.
