Reality Check for the STO PvPer
 
Just a curiousity question for the remaining pvper's out there. No hidden agenda on this question whatsoever. Me just being curious.

What makes you stay in STO for pvp?

Possible answers:
Too much invested financially in it to leave.
Too much invested time wise to leave it.
Love the way STO is right now.
I believe what the devs are promising will happen.
No other alternate out there.
PvP is only 1 part of the game I enjoy.
Most enjoyable game out there.
Friends in game.

For me it was the friends I made in game that was the last thing that kept me in the game. Previously, in years gone by, it used to be all of the above but sadly, over time each one disappeared apart from the last one and now most of them have gone / going.

^^ that
And: The wide variety of ships, skills, weapons, doffs etc. that allows for almost countless possible variations. That was always what I loved about STO...

I'm not sure that's why I'm here now. Without being able to do the quick STF runs to grab Borg/MACO/Omega - I'm not taking my rerolls anywhere near PvP. I'm not doing PvE because I enjoy the PvE - I'm doing it because it's a gated grind that I need to do if I want to PvP again somewhere down the line. So, I'm still here with the hopes of doing PvP again...

...or something like that, eh?

Then again, by the time I get anywhere with the grind - who knows - they might actually do something about PvP...

...okay, that was just silly of me - them do something about PvP - lololololo...

...oh well, back to Archer so I can fight next to the Enterprise!

These really. Else I would be playing GW2 way more.

Actually, I will probably never "leave" STO. Make breaks often yes, as I dislike the grind...but all of the MMOs I have played, this is the only one I regularly return to and pay money for.

Simple as that. Sure things could be better here and there, but overall, it is just fun.

I hate the grind but I love the pew pew... even if pvp has problems currently.

And I also made friends in this game... people I'd never met otherwise, from other cultures all over the world...


BTW Naz come back to STO we need playas

I was online for about 4 hours last night. Why? I was chatting. Played 2 matches. 1 against cheese, made me think about logging out. I started chatting so stuck around, I really do like a lot of people in this game. The 2nd (almost 4 hours later) was against a KDF team that was using skill instead of cheese. That match was fun and reminded me why I kept playing as long as I did. The problem is fun matches are not the norm anymore.

You wait anywhere from 5-10-15+ minutes. When you get in there, the following is likely:

Your team has an AFKer or AFKers.
Their team has an AFKer or AFKers.
Your team has folks breaking out the cheddar.
Their team has folks breaking out the cheddar.
Both your team and their team has an AFKer or AFKers while the remaining members of both your team and their team have folks breaking out the cheddar.
Etc, etc, etc, etc, etc...

Faint memories of fun matches is not enough to make the gamble, take the risk, in bothering to queue...

HOPE

Hope that PvP in STO will one day reach it's potential.
The PvE game is just a way to prepare for it.
