# 1 Feds not available for PVP
04-06-2010, 06:00 PM
I have not played in a few weeks, thought I would try STO again and work on my Klingon. He is only LC1 so I log in and access the PVP queue and WTF? Most of the space queues are sitting with 5 Klingons and 0 Fed players.

Did they overpower Klingons in the last patch or something?

Get to t5 and it's the other way around; always seems to be about 40 Feds and 6 Klingons to share between em.

Time to play some KvK then. The Feddies got their own ballgame now, they don't need Klingons anymore.

Did you try both ground and space?

not that many fed players at lower ranks anymore...

not much new blood coming in since alot want klingons and it isnt the easiest to level with general lack of content.

hell - we just recent got 2 end game content things... 2 about 3 months after release and 2 1/2 months after many peeps reach top level...

Very true. Those who started at the begining already leveled up, and leveled their alts as well. STO is not getting any good publicity so there is virtually no "NEW" players. I pity those trying to level Klingon right now, PvP ques at T1/T2 are very dry. I gave up on my 3rd Klingon Engineer; leveling through exploration missions is just too painful.

I run both Klingon and Fed characters. As a fed player in PvP at Tier 2, I can tell you it is a painful experience. We are always outnumbered, underarmed, and underfunded. The large numbers of BoP decloaking and Alpha Striking, usually two per ship, leaves no time left for even a little bit of maneuver. We die. The only plus there is the spectacular fireballs we make light up the night sky beautifully.

As a Klingon player at Tier 2, game play is the same, the only difference being I am on the dominating side. Fed ships in small numbers just don 't have a chance. Only twice since I began playing this game have I been in a fair fight with the Feds. That was over a month ago...6 on 6. Last time I did PvP as fed., there were three of us, all armed with MK II weapons, MK II shields and MK II engines (That's pretty much all you can get as a Fed early Tier 2) against 7 of them with MK IV cannons, MK IV shields and MK IV engines. We simply never had a chance.

Back to Klingon. The house battles are where it seems to be now. I can always find a good house battle but only rarely find a good fight with the feds. All those 5 on 1 queues and the like, I don't even give a second look. I just watch the house battle queues and jump in on the one with the most interest.

Yeah, sadly I have deleted my new Klingon toon. Gonna have to wait for the PVE content Klingons have been promised because I am not intersted in seeing if I can make another Fed Admiral in 5 days or less.

With no Feds to fight, I have stopped playing.

Why bother. I came to STO to PVP and there really is none here.

While checking my feddie bank toon, I overheard some feds bragging bout how FvF means they don't have to deal with "cloakability" any more. FvF? WTF. How does lore even support something like this? Game mechanics are surely not.

Feds didn't kill PVP tho. Cryptic did with their lack of PVP experience.

Way to cripple the PVP faction and PVP itself.

why would you go to a cryptic game for pvp?

there are like 232626234235624234234 currently running in english mmorpg's that are purely pvp. there are better options - even a better space option for pvp

My problem is with not enough of Klingons at T4. Wait time was about 45-60 minutes between matches last weekend. At least can do some pve missions as I wait but I would rather pvp.
