Klingons are cowards, PVP is dead forever?
 
Is it just me or is there no klings willing to fight in pvp anymore? Been this way since lvl 1 through to where im at now at rear admiral. Then if they do bother to join they just cloak / run away but thats IF they bother to join in pvp match which usualy takes over an hour of queing?

PVP is dead for good?

As it stands right now, PvP is not that popular to say the least.
But it is far from dead, as updates and fixes can come up at any point in the future.

It's more likely that one or all of the following is true.

- The majority of Klingons are at max rank now, so if you aren't max rank, you won't see them in pvp.

- Many PVP players have moved to private queues, because the current system forces KDF and fed to be on opposite sides, and a lot of players like having mixed teams.

- With the recent launch of F2P, many players have started new characters to help their friends level.

- Since KDF isn't unlocked until 25, anything lower than that will not have KvF pvp.

There is a host of reasons for the hit and run behavior.

1.) Its the freaking hat of the klinkers to hit and run. If, for example, a BoP pilot notices his attack did jack shiite, he is not gonna hang around a swarm of angry cruisers, escorts and sci vessels.
B'rel captains certainly have not bought that ship to then simply ignore its special ability.

2.) Running from overwhelming opposition is, especially in arenas, vital for the teams success.
Arena has no use for HEROES that stand bravely in the face of overwhelming odds. Every kill counts. Avoid handing out those kills. By running smartly.

3.) Klinker population is low.

4.) considering the number of feds overall ,the number of feds showing up for pvp is low.


5.) I am mainly fed, and i want more pvp. so Q up ^^

What klinks? If KDF had 15% population months ago I wonder if we've reached 1% now.

Well all im saying is it only takes 5 klinks for one pvp match and if the game doesnt even have 5 klings willing to pvp in the WHOLE GAME.

Yes pvp is dead...right now its impossible for lower level, medium levels and ( il find out shortly ) higher levels to complete there pvp dailys, for ground and space.

PVP is broken / dead. It needs attention or it will stay dead. Cryptic plz stop putting things in casino bags, the cstore and actually do something with your pvp.....might be an idea....:rolleyes:
