Just a quick curious question about the Avenger Class, but was such a design / ship type requested by a group of people, or was it something that the Devs figured we might need so they made it for us short of anyone actually requesting it?

I very much assume that it was a Dev-implemented idea - there were no real hints or anything of the like too far beforehand, and the first hint that we received that a new Federation ship was in the pipeline was in a thread pertaining to how long the Ambassador had been sat outside the window at the ESD ship yard - Branfrakes hinted that it wouldn't be there too much longer. A few weeks later, we got the Avenger.

The question being asked is, "How do we stop players from doing this?"

Ah, so the ships people request are subsided for ships that the Devs think we might like?

Being that fed players always request ships the KDF have, it was a no brainer to make.

People were begging for the uss vengence, so this was as close as they could get.

A lot of people were asking for ways to beef up cruisers. Cryptic gave us one OP cruiser. I assume it was to make money on zen sales.

Heh, that has always been the case. I remember when the level cap was raised to 50, the Federation got the Defiant, Galaxy and Intrepid retrofits. The Klingons got the Fek'lhr Kar'Fi battle carrier because the Devs loved it.

You just hit one of the biggest gripes among the KDF community for years.
People ask for X, Cryptic gives them Y, which has little to do with what people asked for.
Result: people don't buy what they didn't ask for and KDF stuff doesn't sell well...and it's all the evul Klingunz fault.
