Yeah, two lowbie ships. Big whoop. Nobody cares.

Wow.
Nobody said LoR was 'neglecting KDF'. We're appropriately grateful for Cryptic finally doing something with the KDF faction via LoR. That doesn't mean we're gonna start sucking their schlongs at every turn and worshipping the ground they stand on. The KDF as a faction has been f**ked over a few too many times to start believing what Cryptic has to say about future content.

On that day, PWE/Cryptic will be grateful to the KDF players.

But we still won't have any new Z-Store ships. rofl.
I think that neat-o MMO is called Destiny and I believe it will claim this Warrior

Makes me wonder what the devs had to do just to get a few new KDF missions in to complete the KDF side content wise for the 1-50 leveling heh.

My sole reason for playing STO was the Klingon's B'Rel Bird-of-Prey. That has always been my favorite ship from the Star Trek universe. As soon as I unlocked the KDF, my Fed was shelved until after the game went f2p. I made an Orion instead of a Klingon but I flew my B'Rel Retrofit until the pylons developed stress fractures and the nacelles had structural fatigue.

Now I'm in my Fleet Corsair and I can't get enough of it. The utility of the ship is fantastic and makes it far more enjoyable than the Federation cruisers. It's not escort-like DPS but it's more than enough to make it viable in ESTFs with the added utility that no escort can bring to the table. I can captain a vessel that makes the game fun and enjoyable without having to use the Z-store for shiny objects. I don't even use (nor have access to) Plasmonic Leech and the Fleet Corsair is still absolutely awesome.

I don't care much for the story telling because I just want to get to blowing things up with my ship. Sure, some of the stories were pretty cool (mainly the Featured Episodes) but the rest was just filler for the same types of missions, "go to planet X, kill Y, explore Z". Fed missions aren't any different so it's not like the Federation is any better or worse in that department. The story missions are there just to gain xp for leveling. You could level to 50 on DOff missions alone if you really wanted to and that goes for any faction.

I was never a big fan of the tea saucer with chopsticks ships the Federation has so the KDF BoPs and battlecruisers were my hook into the game. The Romulan Warbirds are kinda cool with a lot of utility and I enjoy piloting them as much as the KDF ships. The Federation really doesn't have the versatile ships the KDF and Romulans have. I can look past a majority of the bugs and issues in the KDF because I have far more fun there than I do in the Federation.

I didn't mean it that way at all. I just meant that it seems criminal for letting players into a seemingly unfinished portion of the game without refining it.

Of course that's been going on for years.

I just want everyone and every faction to get the attention they deserve. That's it.
More anything?

Because KDF faction development started on year 3.5 from the opening of STO, so all the comments stating that KDF is like the first year of release for the game, is true.

KDF have too long been neglected.

Until recently, playing KDF seemed like a waste of time. When cryptic set you to start at level 30, that's practically screaming "unfinished" so why bother?

Then Legacy of Romulus happened. I was so impressed with how much content they added to every faction. So much so that I created a KDF character. I went into it hoping that I would experience the same quality work as in the Federation faction.

I could not be more disappointed.

The KDF side is so buggy that it beats out STO's first year or so. What was cryptic thinking? I honestly think they should suspend the KDF side until its actually playable, like they did with the foundry for awhile, because I would rather be held back from that faction than given the option and keep thinking its gotten better since last time.

The missions sometimes won't finish, some aren't even 'completed,' I spend 50K ECs on an Orion Boff a few days ago. Today I logged in - she wasn't there. The Physique modifiers for the Gorn aren't in the tailor. My ship showed up instead. WTF?!

I'm sad to say this is the kinda stuff that pushed me away from STO many times before. PLEASE CRYPTIC. YOUR GAME IS GOOD EXCEPT WHEN ITS BAD. FIX IT.

/rantend

anything you guys are disappointed about that you want to add? I'm sure you've had much more experience if you're a KDF main.
I don't think they should turn kdf off, but certainly they should fix some things. I recently became a lifetime member and my KDF toon cannot locate the firework device as promised to toons in the lifer awards speal. Well I complained with a trouble ticket. About 3 weeks later they responded with a page long canned message that basically said they are sorry for any inconvenience, but they aren't going to fix it and my kdf toon will never have a fireworks device. Gee thanks for taking my money...

LoR was the biggest treat the KDF ever got. Be happy with it, the feds got nothing.
Let us wear Swimsuits on Foundry maps or bridges please! I would pay zen for that.
