Let's face it, Cryptic doesn't give a damn about pvp. (And don't you dare saying "ground revamp", this is a pve development with repercussions for pvp.)
On the other hand, almost everything that they can sell on the C-Store will make it into the game. This leaves us with one last option: Bringing PVP to the C-Store.
Premium PVP maps (arena and C&H)?
Access to a territory control sector?
Paying for being flagged for open world pvp?
Cookie cutter ship builds? (FOTM dps cruiser, fully set up healboat, ...)
Let's hear any ideas we can come up with to give Cryptic all our money and get some PVP in return. Desperate times call for desperate actions.
So we need to pay more for less? The Klingon Factions lifeblood is PvP. So they are to pay more just to play.
