# 1 Buff Klingons
02-01-2010, 10:31 PM
This is ridiculous, we are amazing in Tier 1, but by the middle of T2 I can't even skill up my Boffs. I've barely managed to finish outfitting my personal character, I obviously can't buy kits, so I'm still using the starter kit. By the time I outfit my ship I'll be in T3, and I probably won't even be able to fully outfit it. So then I'll be in T3, with no upgrading boffs, flying a ship using T2 and T1 equipment because there is literally no way to get anything better.

And to top it all off, I come to the forums and see nothing but fed players whining about how they went into a pvp match at level 6 still using their starter white gear and were unable to solo 5 klingons before dieing.

This makes me a sad klingon

Maybe the gear aspect for Klingons has to be improved, but face it, Klingons are still the dumbest most overpowered thing ever.

Take any other MMO with two factions. Now say: "One of the faction gets perfect stealth on every class and the other faction gets nothing to counter it", think how that would be balanced in any way. It never is.

It's not here either.

If you like Rothnang.

Klingon cruisers have the burst of Federation escorts. Give or take a little bit.

This is general post from other thread but its a good information source

Gearing Issue : Feds get mission loot and drops (blue) that is on par for the next Tier. So they do T1 missions and get T2 loot, and this continues to T5 i assume. Klingons do T1 we get sub T1 loot, and same continues to T5. This is something the DEVS have to look into... really big issue.

------------------------

DEVS, nerfed us in OB (more noobs who comed to play didnt know how to play Feds and started QQing/Crying/Whining/Sobbing/yelling for mom etc).

And now someone is saying we are getting a nerf in prelaunch, and possible in the future.

Now let me say this much, you can keep your retarded game where your Developer tongue goes so deep into casual fed players aft that i dont wanna be any part of it.

T1 feds are flying and sunday driving in white gear, ups they get their ass handed to themselves by PvP players, big suprise.

T2 Feds get Cruisers, WOAH i wanna fly a big bad cruiser, and guess what, its so OP ship in T2 that in general team with the most Cruisers wins, and btw Klingons have none.

T3 Ive got reports that Fed gearing is so OP compared to Klink side that Cruisers can take 5 players for over 30 seconds and even survive as Klingon side looses ships more faster then Feds. Part of the problem is Federation Alpha when 1st guy uncloaks. (1st burst comes from Feds)

T4 no reports/info

T5 no reports/info

-----

Now ive talked about the 1st burst from Fed side but no one thinks about the problem, Klingons have frontal attack, so when one of us is devestated from start and he looses his shields INSTANTLY upon decloacking, he has to face away and start tanking = ZERO Dps.

On fed side they keep shooting coz of wide arcs.

So basically in every tier from 2->5, the 5vs5 games are not 5vs5 games, they are 5 vs 4 (4 Klinks and one tank who cant face the target).

You can argue that one Klingon should use wide arc weapons, but be realistic, was the game really developed that in mind ? short answer , it wasnt.

---------- Devs Stop listening to Federation Whiners , Listen to CB OB Prelaunch Klingon players who 99% say how it is ------------

The OP isn't talking about who is overpowered. He is stating a simple fact that Klingons do not get Honor for PvP. This is a huge problem.

/agree

We have enough diminished gameplay by comparison. Fix this.

Fed faction gets better ships at every tier. Klingon faction get's to cloak out of combat.

Fed ships at every tier have more hull, more BOFF slots, and more weapon slots.

Fed science ships get an innate ability to target subsystems. Klingon BOP ships get an innate ability to cloak in combat.

For every perk the Feds get, the Klingons have a different perk, and vice versa. BOPs can cloak in combat, science ships can wipe out subsystems at will. Feds have better defense and offense than Klingons, Klingons can cloak while not in combat.


The only huge discrepency is that past T2 Klingons no longer have access to decent gear, and cannot maintain their bridge officers with promotions or skill changes.

LOL "nothing to counter", there are plenty of counters. Saying there isn't just shows your lack of skill. Only in tier1 are Klingon's are overpowered.

Using WoW, it is like a warrior fighting a rogue. We got the stealth, we can do burst damage and first hit, but your abilities, your stronger ships, etc, can defeat us if we fail our attack in any way.

I agree, Klingons should get better access to gear in the same grounds that feds do more or less. I think its coming though in the next content patch so rest assured, devs are aware.

It sounds like the general method is still in force: keep and level your fed alt, and ship all the good gear across via trade in the NZ or mail. A slower rise as a Klingon, to be sure, but at least you'll have parity in gear.
