Low Gear Dependency - Sure, there are the STF sets and they basically ruin a lot of item choice, but it doesn't really matter whether you have the Mark XI or Mark XI variants, and even the "old" style STF sets are still highly competitive. I don't like to grind to have a hope of being competitive in PvP, and I don't need to do that in STO.
Just gonna quote this guy and be done with it. What kept me in sto pvp originally was that I didn't have to win by buying multi-million ec loot of the auction house. Like, I didn't need a high level alt to "feed" my lieutenant level captains to compete. When I lose, i've generally always had the feeling I was beaten by
players, not better
C-STORE and especially lock-box ships are sort of ruining that feeling for me, though.
