Fun is pretty much the main reason I PvP. I enjoy the challenge, especially when compared to the mind numbingly easy PvE.
I enjoy fights that are gimmickless (no P2W consoles, no trics, no SNB doffs etc, no power siphons), just using skill and intelligence (with regards to builds) and are either pug vs pug or premade vs premade. Basically I enjoy a fair fight, whether or not that leads to me being blown up.
Personally I find I get more enjoyment out of pug matches, since there's more self reliance and hinges more upon individual skill.
On the other hand getting focus fired while getting numerous hold/slow/stun disable isn't remotely enjoyable, since it takes control away from me. This is infact one of the reasons I primarily run an escort instead of a cruiser, as APO means I can break most holds and slows.
Also to be honest I find cross healing to be an added bore. Watching someone who has zero skill being kept on lifesupport by his team is annoying. Don't get me wrong, as long as it's available in the game I'll cross heal, I just find it makes a match less enjoyable.
First, Snoge00f, what is FOTM? I can't quite figure out what you mean.
Second, I REALLY wanna make a joke here.
Third, I find the most fun to be an exhilarating match, using skill and effort to try and defeat the opponent, not just cheap tactics. It's really very exciting when another player and I, in an arena or something start to duke it out, doing an unexpected 1 v 1. Sometimes I kill that player, sometimes that player kills me. Either way, it''s almost always extremely enjoyable.
When it starts getting into paid-for consoles and ships, with every bit of cheapness under the sun to win, then it loses it fun. When the enemies are weak, without any to no skill or just AFKing, then it also can lose it's fun.
To me, PvP is fun, and as long as it stays fun and enjoyable, I'll do it. When it loses it's fun, I stop doing it.
The real fun is...to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women!
Seriously, fun means do not give any importance to an humiliating defeat when you have done everything possible to prevent it.
Fun means to lose against the evul Klinguns in arena and having been the best Fed.
Fun means to vaporize a Vo'quv or a Kar'fi and then escape from the targ packs (Bops and Raptors) vengeance.
Fun means to congratulate your enemy when he defeat you with skill and cleverness and without dirty tricks.
Fun means to remember this is a game and we are all here to have just fun!
After a fierce battle against the evuls a Fed Captain needs some relax!
