# 1 Boarding Partys PvP Style

I'm beting this has been brought up before. If you were able to board another players ship (only during PvP of course) to add alittle twist to the game would you support that. Or on the other hand would that be something you'd like to see added?

The only game that I've seen make ship+boarding combat work was Pirates of the Burning Sea, and there it takes quite a bit longer to down even a stationary ship. Here, ships pop far too fast to make a transition to boarding combat feasible. They would seriously need to reduce the rate at which all ships can be destroyed in order to give enough time for a boarding op to play out without the boarding ship being taken down in the process.

This was an idea I was hoping was implemented when the game launched. The defending captain gets to use his bridge officers and crew to defend his ship, while the boarding party uses their captain and bridge officers to assault the enemy ship engineering / bridge, etc.

The two ships that got engaged in this type of combat are made untargetable in space.

If the boarding attack is successful, then the boarded ship is destroyed, if it isn't, then space combat resumes as normal or something like that.
