Most Important question you guys forgot....
 
Now that LoR is released, granted some kinks will need to be worked out. Are Cryptic now gonna live up to the promise of PVP getting some real attention?

Forget the petty lock box whining, the P2W bs arguments and all that nonsense.

This is the true question:

Is it the PVP community's turn to get the proper attention as promised by Cryptic?

The measure could be:
A PvP environment in which a true tournament can be run without any "real" complaints and without any community made rules

Gozer was "planning" stuff, then he left and pvp got passed on. I remember this: http://kotaku.com/5909914/star-trek-...ames-pvp-sucks

The answer is very obvious Naz: Yes.

But question is IF we are being heard at all unless we do something "drastic" as boot camp again :confused:

Tick boxes may be your friend here

Allow Lockbox ships
Allow C store ships
Allow Fleet ships
Allow exotic consoles
Allow cloaking (federation)
Allow Respawn (not ticked and you have true one death pvp aka "truecore")
Allow Reinforcements (if not ticked disables ALL ship spawning abilities)
Allow Warp out
Allow VOICE Chat

And Fleet exercise (no pugs)

i really and honestly wish they would make a pre-made and a pug button for joining arena.

i dont mind playing against pre-mades even if im rolling with a pug but i know many people who simply wont pvp because when they have they lost 15-0 because of pre vs pug and it turned them off of pvp because they feel they have no chance.

"As promised"? When was the last time they actually promised pvp related things? The S4 repurposed FE pvp map?

On the other hand, one of them did talk about dreams of tournaments with real money prizes. And what's better then to give out real money prizes that people have to pay money for to have a chance?

Cryptic obviously doesn't care for a balanced esports-style approach or they would not have let balance deteriorate as much as they did. But they might be greedy enough to go into full golden bullet mode and then do tournaments with actual prizes to draw players in and essentially make them buy true p2w consumables to have a shot at winning.

(Not just accuracy weed, jevonite and team batteries. Think big. Think boff abilities with limited charges, and obviously weapons with limited charges, too.)

On the other hand the pvp population seems to be too small right now for this to be worth the development time.

But it's come up in the other threads...

"All PVP in the new system will be cross faction queues."

...and it's probably likely that happens.

Think about what Geko has said about maintaining Red vs. Blue. It's not about maintaining KDF vs. Fed...because with FvF and KvK, there are still RvB teams. So it won't matter if it's F-Roms/K-Roms/Fed/KDF vs. F-Roms/K-Roms/Fed/KDF...it will still be RvB.
