The biggest problem with ground pvp is that it is not fun for pug groups. You need a pre-made and established group, otherwise your chances of succeeding are a complete crapshoot, even if they other team is just as badly set up.
I should have elaborated. I do not enjoy FPS-like games. Ground PvP is FPS-like.
It would not matter if STO Ground PvP was the best FPS combat out there... they could not pay me $15 a month to play it.
Heck, 12 some years ago - we ran a ST-EF server over in the IT department and would stay late on Friday's to play... FPS-like games are simply not my thing.
