However IF... we had a PvP paper doll ship... you select your PvP ship just like you select your shuttle... and when you map load an arena or a cap and hold or some new game type I hope... you load into your PvP ship.
That ship should have nothing but Hyper/Combat/impulse and Covarient/resistant/standard shields and the standard deflectors.
No Fleet gear... No Rep gear... No rep passives... no lobi Gear...
Make Blue weapons and gear of every type purchasable from a vendor with a -p on the end meaning they are only for use on the PvP paper doll. Make this gear Free or at the most like the cost of pve junk gear from the vendors.
Create a PvP merit system... or simply bring back the old currency.
Create another vendor that sells purple weapons and gear. (standard 3 mod stuff)... and sell those for merits. Set it up so every 2-3 matches you could pop in a purple weapon... and after a night or two you could grab a purple shield engine what ever.
At that point I think we would all see just how balanced the Boff Skills really are... and how un game breaking the doffs are on there own.
Balance eh? go play Call of Duty if you want balance- or take your pick of game that has ZERO variety.
I have been playing MMO's since ULTIMA ONLINE back in 98' - and I have played about 90% of the MMO's that followed ---- NEVER have I read about such a resistance to change in a game before- period
guys, seriously, the past is GONE, let it gooooo
its time to embrace a more complex, more rich pvp experience- were the build matters, and the gear matters- VS in the past it was simply about skill (cause everyone had the same $hit)
Its time to go the way of the dinosaurs... or evolve.
(besides, who does't LOVE the look of a romulan warbird, comon, any fan of the TNG show loved that ships)
Just because it is not a cookie cutter escort does not mean it should not be in the game.
Win or lose, in the end it does not reflect on who you are as a person, in the end it is how you treat others that really reflects who you are.
