Ahhh!
It is finally Starting! The Slow Rise of PvP!

America!

Geko said in the interview they removed the dilithium requirements with the rep system leveling.. They are planning to release it soon I believe.

With Cryptic's history.....I'll believe when it's actually in game,till then it's nothing more than smoke up our behinds.

So are leaderboards and tournament queues.

Since June of 2010.
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

sounds like pvp rep is next, with defera, cardasian and tholian later. tholian? you don't really interact with them, you shoot them. reputation as a menis to them?

i am glad to hear about the other reputation missions arent going to charge dil, that dil nickle and dimming that we were facing with that was bad.


the new passives for the current rep are a scary thing for pvp, i don't want to know what they will come up with for focus on pvp.

But can't you picture the following down the line?

The group of five that has T5'd their reps with 5-6 groups - where they're flying a Drek'Hi, a Warbarge, a Balaur, and two Ravagers...

...and seeing the guy show up in his brand new Sovereign ready to rock and roll.

Can you imagine the forum posts?

He said that the Reputation system is where they COULD put a PVP reputation, same with Tholians, or others.. Not that they WOULD..

You think that your beta test was bad?

Well all things considered, with a huge bulk of PvP players gone to Mech Warrior Online and Guild Wars these guys may have got the message. Then again, I could be wrong.

I think they thought we were bluffing.

Let's take a simple calculator to the test, tachyoknetic converter is being bought a lot by PvPers to my knowledge as a replacement to the Borg console. That's a $50.00 console easily.

Let's say there's 200 PvPers, and say 75 of them are gone to Mech Warrior, that's $3750.00 per character right off the bat in loss of revenue! Although this number is deflated a lot, it just shows how high that dollar number can get with inclusion to respec tokens, more players, and other releases. Vesta for instance is probably going to be another $50.00 package that will have a lack of consumers due to their neglect to PvP.

This is my assessment to Cryptic/PWE's losses for this month. Then again, they could deem it all as a write off and intended for it all to happen. I can bet their value as a 50 million dollar company has been depreciated since PWE bought them.

Every penny counts Crytpic/PWE. This business relationship between pvper and developer has become more a long the lines of investor and corporation. And the investors are pulling out, one by one.
