I think you're mistaken. I've read thousands of posts since this game launched complaining about how OP the cloak is. Let's just even the playing field!

A T6 Connie! That's perfect. It can come with ... that Romulan cloak that Kirk stole as one of its perks!

Uh, the Galaxy X already has a cloak, so why'd you keep playing the game all these years?

Thats my point. If I would play a Fed focused on PvE, I would not spend 2500 Zen for a cloaking device. No $$$ for cryptic.

If I would play a Fed, focused on PvP, I of course would. But I would also notice that 2 teams both cloaked in a PvP match is quite boring. At first, some $$$ for cryptic, but from the point of view in long terms, they loose customers focued on PvP.

Cloaking device can only given to all factions equally if cloaking is massivly reduced in efficency - this should be even the case by now, since cloaking is far to effective and hard to counter. Imagine a MMOPRG, like WoW, where one faction can be completely invisible. From the point of view of game balance, this is just insane.

Of course I mean ... it's time for the Romulans to start equipping their federation allies fleet with ...

CLOAKING DEVICES!

Have at it canoneers!
In this case... i have to agree.

The Tal'Shiar are shooting at us on sight anyway, and the only legit government now is our Ally, unless the Klingons have a treaty with the romulans to not share the tech because they are allies too... yapp screw it, Battlecloaks for everyone!

If the reason for the Romulans joining is "getting their technology" ... then that should go both ways.


Not saying i want it to happen at all, but from a canon perspective, it makes sense to lift the old Treaty of Algeron, if not now then when?

From a Star Trek storytelling perspective the Episodes where the Defiant relied on the cloaking device had a nice sub marine feeling and it worked well in those episodes, i see no reason to withhold that tech from Starfleet any longer, in particular if D'Tan wants our tech for his Ships.

What's with all the aggression friend? I must have struck close to the mark to elicit that much venom. Hey chill, it's ok. DStahl and Cryptic already assured us that it's ok. For the past few years they've shared their metrics with us. They're pretty open about what the federation players desire most.

In all honesty the FED's shoudl not have cloaks... they have too much already. Idk what LOR holds but man you feds gotta stop sucking the targ's milk and begin more solitare in the Fields of Asphostrite and be happy you have what you have.
that is something you should ask your new romulan allies what do you get feds got cloaks but I say to you this both fed/kdf should be saying hey I want them blueprints to them romulan ships seeing you are getting ours !
the age of launcher... is over...!! the time of the ARC has come!!!!!!!!!
One ARC to rule them all, One ARC to find them,
One ARC to bring them all and in the darkness bind them!

I just don't like people calling me a liar... Wich is pretty much what you keep doing...

Couppled with the fact that I think you're wrong, that scores you pretty bad credit
My name may say "PWE member", but I will never be.

Same with KDF ships too huh? Like you even though of that... seeing a LG KDF ship cloak that is powerful enough without the cloak?

I never called you a liar. (Though you did call me one). I simply cited Cryptic's own statements and the data they use to back them up. It's what the devs and DStahl keep saying and posting, year in and year out. Not me. Them.

I should have the Quatloos needed to cover that.
