What do you miss of old STO pvp?
 
PVP has changed a lot in 4 years, I miss a lot of the feel of PVP from 2-3 years ago, and I am sure others do also, what do you miss that has changed?

I miss when factions were unique with different tactics

I miss when free ships were viable in pvp and they were most of what was used. The Fleet escort (now known as Patrol escort) and Heghta BOP were great ships back then.

I miss when you could use 4 DHC builds

I miss when you could use torps without being a BO vaper

I miss when not everyone cloaked.

I miss when you used to see more faction ships then lockbox, lobi and event ships

I miss when you could level to 50, do a few STFs then jump into pvp without having to grind rep and fleet credits for months.

I miss when crafted, loot, and exchange bought consoles, equipment, and weapons were useful

I miss when there were less god mode doffs

I miss when there were no doffs

I miss when there were less cheese consoles and before there was cross faction consoles

I miss when Feds couldn't hide in FvF

I miss when you could change sides in Kerrat

I miss when you all start at the same spawn in kerrat for epic battles

I miss when tricobalt was useful.

I miss when a2b used to share eptx cooldowns

Sorry for rant lol, I just wish the old days could come back somtimes at least partially

You're mean...I don't want to remember that stuff! It's bad enough keeping up with how PvP was better a couple of weeks ago without looking at everything over the years...

Logging in and having fun.

I wasn't around in the old days, but long enough to know that it used to be more fun.

What do I miss? PvP. This thing we have now is just a sad excuse.

You have been here around 2 years maybe more. Enough time to notice a lot of changes, many not for the better. That was right around when they started Fleet starbases and before the rep system, so you got to experience PVP right before and as most of the power creep started

Anything specific you and others can think of, what did you used to like or what don't you like now that used to be different?

I joined the game because I saw the pretty ships and wanted that cool free ship they were giving away (the Odyssey). Basically I "grew up" in STO just before it all went downhill. I remember playing through the Dominion FE when it launched, but I most of all remember the day the Cardie lock boxes came out. I celebrated when they stopped dropping, and thought it was over and done.

Heh.

I miss literally being able to go to the exchange, buy gear, and then hop back into PvP with a new setup.

If I want to change something now, I gotta grind days or weeks just for a few items from the fleet/rep store.

I miss the days before the serious power creep.

Back when space PvP was much slower paced. I really miss not having cheese flying everywhere. Now PvP consists of ships flying in crazy circles while ships yoyo damage and heal, with science/rep/lock box garbage taking a dump in my face every 4-7 seconds.

Oh, I also miss when only Klingons cloaked, and only BoP hit-and-runners recloaked in battle. Now with Rommies, people can just recloak when going down.

And I miss RSP being green...

If PvP could speak...

I miss not having autofire so you could keep up the APM rather than fire and forget.

I don't miss replacing my keyboard every week though :cool:

I miss all the OP said.

I think season 2 or 3 was the golden age of PvP not too many things broken. Escorts killed, cruisers healed, and sci ships did science. I think that time the holy trinity was the most balanced.
