The bop will loose its uniqueness, and sense there is a poster who likes to dig up dirt on other posters in this thread, I will take it one step further. I also previously asked if the Defiant should have a battlecloak. All Klingons ships have cloak, but only the bop has battle cloak. Now they are giving battle cloak to all Romulan ships. Not a single federation ship has battle cloak. Unless the hull points on the warbirds are extremely low. This takes one of the few remaining unique things of the KDF away.

I am a huge fan of the Klingons, but in sto I did not feel that I was stepping into that universe, except on rare occasions. They can complete the leveling experience, but I think it would be prudent to give all KDF ships battle cloak. This I think would help out the faction. Right now I just do not see the Uniqueness of the Klingons, or as the op said whats the reason to make a klingon now.
While not testing myself, I heard from others that are testing that there is a final tier warbird that has HEC (Fed escort) stats, 5 tac consoles and a battlecloak. I don't know how accurate that is but it just seems a "tad" much.

I realize most people would dismiss a claim like that but Cryptic IS trying to sell more ships above everything else. They also had no qualms about releasing a ship full of bugs (Kumari) knowing full well about its unfinished nature. Nevermind about the 5 forward weapon slots on said ship.

These are not the Romulans from the shows.

All the old KDF players are stuck with just the KDF gear as I see it now.

So unless I am wrong - other than Klingon fandom - what possible reason is there to start/keep a Klingon toon when you can - or a new player can get access to all your stuff+their new stuff?

So those fleets that built up bases - you get to build ships and gear for the Romulans - that you wont have access to as a Klingon!!

I hope I am wrong - but if this is true - the Klingon race is going to almost disappear in STO.

relax dude. romulan ships may have battle cloak but they get -5 to -10 power to all systems due to thier singularity drive.
also thier turn rates suck

kdf allied romulans cant get our tier 5 ships.

in the end what will happen is feds will whine. and Cryptic will give feds singularity cores.

then romulans will drop down to 15% playerbase like us and we will have publicized evidence for why Cryptic cant ignore a faction just cause everyone wants to be the "good guys"
personally as far as playerbases go, KDF is the good guys and Feds are a bunch of whiners and ragers.

Really, its a game.. relax

Breathe in.. Breathe out

Say it with me "Its a game"

That being said, most of my toons are klingon, been playing klingon back when pvp and nebulas where the only way to level. Sure, ill roll a rommie, but Im not giving up being a Klingon, and in the end, even with my strong like of the STNG Rom ships, I will end up back to playing a klingon.

Really, if everyone else leaves the klingon empire to play roms, I'm fine with that. Less lag for me. In the long run, you will have die hard rom lovers roll roms just because they love roms. You will have min maxers roll rom kdf as in the end, KDF just is better (IMHO) ad you will have stubborn folks as myself who wont give up the easy, non lag or blood red screen anytime soon just to roll a new race


Overall, new races, new player factions are a good thing. It shows the devs are putting an effort into expanding their product offering, they are willing to vest time & money into it, and as a consumer, Im willing to pay them for the effort. With luck it will be so successful that it will spurn other player factions to be rolled out, and with it all the awesome canon and ship designs. So relax, this isnt WoW, the devs actually seem to pay attention, they offer a product worth buying, so much so they offer it free and you can buy the features you want, its the free market at its best, and I fully salute them in their endevour

Based on our game population the only way the KDF can be facing extinction is if I die in my sleep.

We wont let that happen. You will die as any true warrior of the Empire, on your feet, blade in hand, fighting till you last breath.
Have you checked tribble yet?

But seriously, is it worth checking? I'm not sure how much they have up for the KDF on it, and I don't wanna re-download the game to play Rom (soz).

I mean, I heard the KDF stuff was going up sometime in May, but I haven'r heard how much and when.

Thankya

Depends on if you feel like waiting to see it or not.

Anyone can copy a character over to Tribble I think and check out the new Klingon stuff, except for the beginning tutorial itself. But then again, I also have a closed beta invite, so I could be mistaken.

Though honestly, having played it, it is 1-20 leveling story content exactly as promised after so long. And most of it really and truly does feel like playing a Klingon.
