You see, this thread is why I don't let Vox outside the fleet during peak business hours. This is why when he goes on holiday the national guard need to be aware. This is why we don't give him lemonade after 5pm. This is why I keep all Lag members electronically tagged at all times when mixing with the public.
This thread is also why I PvP. It's hilarious.
These threads are partly why I visit these forums so frequently. That and my secret love affair with Mimey.
Please, can we have some more ego-bruised Kirks, and not a wiff of Dev feedback on why PvP is so hopelessly behind, game-wise?
I guess they're all off making the next batch of Winter Event scarves or something, hehe.
@Aquitaine985 Lag Industries STO PvP Fleet - Executive
A Sad Panda of Industrial calibre. 2010: This is Cryptic PvP. Please hold the line, your call is very important to us...
Player 1: In order to make PVP better, the devs need to address a fundamental flaw in their approach to balance, which in turn affects everything else.
Player 2: BUT BUT BUT EXTREME OUTLIER CASE!
have fun babysitting those cooldowns.
try using a model with the flexibility to address those extremes.
the game needs overhauled mechanically.
doubters of this need to play games that arent mmo's for a bit
-star trek online minimum DPS requirement vortex probe hp = 62365 x3 = 187095. speed = 0.8 km/s(about) giving about 25 seconds to kill them while in range, this means you need an effective DPS output of 7484, or your build is a failure. Star Trek canon depictions of battle: 1000km in dialogue = 1km on screen.
Wouldn't it actually be a case of playing more MMOs?
After all, it's an MMO - it should play like a MMO...it shouldn't play like a FPS, RTS, boardgame, SPRPG, etc, etc, etc...no?
I don't know, I can see where he is coming from, games with different factions have different units in each faction that work differently and need balancing properly against one another (in a RTS setting) and they usually do it quite well so as an example of STO vs a properly balanced game I can see where a different game style would demonstrate this.
