Seing how extremely rare it is to get pvp games going in t1 - t4 nowadays, would it be feasible to make t1 and t2, t3 and t4 share maps?
and to get rid of the obvious balance issues how about giving the lower tier players a "pvp buff" simmilar to the one they use in Warhammer online that enhance the players stats to be somewhat competitive against higher tier players?
sfor example, buffing a t3 player up to captain 5 in terms of damage and ship health?
Also, Cryptic should put in a little pop-up tutorial at the beginning of the game that explains that drop down menu so that new players know where and how to que for PvP if they so desire. I believe this is a big reason why Lt and LtC PvP is so sparsely populated at times.
