That kind of sums it up doesn't it? Clearly an Issue but the Devs aint listening or doing anything to improve, fixing the queues aint exactly going to bork PVE is it? if they are so worried about harming PVE

Look at Counterstrike in the old days, it was a free game, but big tournaments held both nationally and internationally, big prizes, big sponsors from both Intel and Razer. Why? because the creators supported the game and made it grow into it's fullest potential.

given the Star Trek IP the potential could have been far greater, it's a real shame that those who PVP are very few compared to PVE players who are happy to pop cubes and it gives them a power trip they are God. But they queue for PVP they get Roflstomped and don't bother with it.

There's only so much you can do before it becomes pointless and seems you are banging your head against a wall when the Devs don't appreciate issues and ignore them.
Just make the queu cross faction and it will be more interesting for evryone and all the PVE player tryed to pvp one day but they dont ahve many uption of game play ...

I am sure somebody will come along and say you can always go to Ker'rat for some action; the problem with Ker'rat is its frequent imbalance of players due to being an open warzone, with the result that some days you are bored and other days you are being ganked and only occasionally do you get an interesting fight. It doesn't help that switching instances is bugged and the player cap per instance appears to be somewhat low for an "open" warzone.

As I think of it though, I do like the idea of an option to queue for a mixed-faction team fight, as a separate option from the existing choices. It would require some justification for story purposes but once the dev team comes up with some simple "cover story" most players won't really care. If Fed vs. Fed or KDF vs. KDF fights are "wargames" then mixed-faction teams going at each other could be the result of Section 31 and/or Klingon Intelligence and/or Tal Shiar influence. Find a way to mix up the intelligence services and possibly Battle Group Omega or some other cross-faction initiative or something new and it'll work.
IF you want RP with STORY go private lol

I tend to agree we need a cross faction queue on top of the ones that we have.

The problem as I see it though is that people avoid KDF sometimes. That was probably the case in the past as the KDF had the battlecloak. Not so anymore.

On fed v kdf I still find myself getting ganked fairly hard. I don't blame the KDF players rather the feds that seem to play.

Anyway I would support a completely RANDOM pvp queue too. One that would mix up teams, throw you into either cap&hold or arena. Could be fun.

+1 from me.

Part of it was cloak, particularly BoPs with BC. But more than that, it was the other 'Klingon cheese'.

Graviton Pulse
Theta
Power Siphons
Etc

That put people off to playing against Klingons a lot of the time. Nowadays though, the dislike stays, yet most of the cheese is on both sides of the field.

But agreed, we need cross faction queues.

I'd just settle for something simple like spell check...

I suppose they could eliminate the queue and just make a "PVP" area, if you want to pvp you enter that zone/instance/whatever and all the PVPers can just go nutzo on each other.

Assuming more than 1 person who wants to PVP is signed into the game at any one time lol.

They killed any dreams of that...it's PvE Territory Control, Players vs. the Voth.

Geez... bad enough we have Romulans fighting each other in open combat, now you want the same nonsense for Starfleet? Why the hell would teams of Starfleet & KDF officers engage in open combat against other Starfleet & KDF officers? Yeah, there's a lot of crazy stuff in this game, but for me at least, that would really be jumping the shark.

How about instead, you ask them to actually fix PvP to make it more than alpha-strike insta-kills vs. magical insta-superheals. Then more people might play it and you wouldn't have to wait 20 minutes for a queue to pop.

You already have Feds and Romulans killing other Feds and Romulans on the other team, what would be the difference. We need cross faction queues now otherwise might as well let the KDF be abosrbed by the Federation like how Romulans are.
