Unless they use a Lock Box.... otherwise I kinda agree with OP... I mean.. not as much as he says but more the fact that it took too long for this and it feels weak yah know? Even with new missions we barley have VO.. which I soon found is matched w/ Romulan low VO.. and FEDs can kill you with all the VO they have.. anyways. I'd rate the likeability of KDF on 7 out of 10.. just because I like it and I play Gorn and stuff . (PS: have 7 KDF Alts, 2 Romulan Alts And 1 (LVL 1) Fed Alt... That proves my point! )

The Rommie seemed to be a good cloaker but I didnt think it hit that hard on ground.
I had some mk12 nanite pulse weapons and they were good but it seemed like the rommie didnt impress me much on ground. Had a hard time getting tht one shot, too.
Am I missing something didnt seem any better than any other race.

I switched to a sci at this point. Was running a rommie tac.

Because they have Gorn's and Gorn's are cool.

Because the Fed has nothing that looks like a Guramba Siege Destroyer.. their ships with their nacelles all look the same to me. It's as if they bring out a new designed car, only thing that changes is some curves and make it more smooth and sexy.. and paint it fancy.

It's fine if you want to relive TOS, TNG, Voyager, Enterprise or DS9.. but things like the Odyssey is just.. Meh.

Give me something with teeth. Something that looks unique and not like another new fancy Ferrari.

You know what would be awesome? Customize your entire ship by using ALL parts available (whats unlocked to you through Zen-store/Lock Box) and make your own design. Now that would be awesome.. STO-Shipyard x)

Wouldn't that be awesome? You have maximum hull/shield, console slots and various other depending on your ship-building research? xP Throw tiers out the window and let people gradually build their way up to like a Tier 10.. whatever the limit could be.

Enough rambling.. Klingons are awesome and they rarely bull**** each other. Finally, ESD is a Troll-haven.

Roms having more advanced cloaks I'm sorta fine with, given they're the cloak experts.

That said the rest is a bit crazy.

A dreadnought that can equip 5x DHC, has battlecloak, scramble sensors casting pets AND singularity powers... That is just insane.

An escort with a fleet assault cruisers shields and console set up... Bonkers

On top of that, before my Rom acquired the embassy boffs and before I even started grinding the rep system with him, he had already got a higher crit severity and crit chance than my ex-mains.

Ground: self explanatory. Just look at what they get.

Ships: All romulan ships have 'tier 6' type design. You simply cannot compare the performance of an = tier KDF and romulan ship.. its a gap in performance as vast there is between a Fed Nebula and Fed Vesta.

If that wasn't enough, we see the talshiar lockbox ships are literally making every tier 5 kdf ship obsolete when it comes to cruisers and escorts.

Our consoles will be available to romulans through the cross-faction consoles too.

So, really.. why would people bother joining the KDF these days? With the history of zero unique ships being made for KDF in the past 2+ years and the bulk of the kdf fleet being old releases and romulan ships having the 'tier 6' design at end game... well... you would only join KDF for the bloodwine.

I love how people seem to think there's this ultimate advantage to being a Rommie nowadays, every faction has its advantages in and out of combat, any T5 ship from any faction with the right setup and skill setup can become a killer opponent, all the lock box ships are available to all factions... There's pros and cons to each faction, too many for me to bothered to list right now.

But in short, KDF for honour and glory!

I like my Ferasan.
STO would have been better as a Stargate MMO than it is as Star Trek. Go figure.

why play KDF ?

1) worf
2) perfect starting storyline - with worf .... omg we have chance fight together with worf !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

much better and dynamic storyline , minimum looong and booring missions like Feds have ...
better ships - yes Scimitar is cool , and maybe in future i try one romulan and buy him too - but this is only one "must have" ship

but we Klingons have our BoPs , Negh'Var etc ..... i personaly now want Tor'Kaht which is "on paper" awsome
Sorry 4 my bad English , is not my native language
K'eldron , son of J'ardis - KDF Klingon TAC , Fleet Tor'Kaht (beam/gunboat hybrid)
V'endy - KDF Orion SCI , Vo'Quv Carrier (GW spammer/heavy gunship)
Tanis - FED ally Romulan TAC , Ar'Kif
