ok pvp is a little sparse, and the rewards arnt what id hope, but its ok for a young mmo, as long as some sets come in soon

ground pve enemys have to be high on hp because they are thick, its the rly long holds, seducted or knock backs that pee me off (i payed to play not watch my bos while i can do nothing)

1 shot kills are for console games not mmos, go play halo or CoD if you want that

enemies level with you, the skins for level 1 BoPs are very different from VA BoPs (aboth the size of T2-3 crusers) so its not the same model of #ship# you are killing at X level so it makes some sence

but yeh, it gets a bit boring at times, cos most players solo pve, so STF's fleet actions and senarios have very few players, cryptic needs to improve the rewards for missions that are done with other players (like they did with the borg set)

i remember waiting a year to get into a battleground in WOW.
Nobody did it. That was the worst PVP i have ever seen.

There are no spurious, heavy-handed unmeditated acts of excessive moderation. The moderators are relatively fair and they don't always take a report at face value and moderate the guy who was reported.

If you've been moderated unfairly, I am sorry to hear it.

Yes. I have other things to do with my day. 15 minutes waiting for PvP is unacceptable no matter how common an issue it is.

I've played...

WoW
Age of Conan
Eve Online
STO
DDO
Rift

In Eve and Rift, PvP can instantly be found anywhere and it's totally awesome.

Yep. The op may have other things to do with his day.

You mocked the op for finding an aspect of the game frustrating. I do deem that disrespectful.

I have a fun time with my fleetmates fighting them instantly while they're online without waiting for a PvP queue at all. It's awesome. My personal best was taking on five of them all at once (at VA) in my cruiser and winning one fight out of three.

I wouldn't have wasted the time. I had a life to live, and that's my point.

I'm wondering if the Tournaments that snix mentioned back in July will ever appear in game?

It seems like Tournament Seasons are what drove WoW's later PvP community (that and more PvP options the higher you go). (yes, WoW's original PvP was lame but it's developed nicely over the years)

More is on the way, but the above is in development (or already in testing) and should be out soon.

Thanks as always for your patience,

Then ask for the Thalaron drones and the SwordMasters to be removed from the game altogether.

The fact that you (and your away team) can be wiped out in one shot, but you cannot reciprocate gives this game a sense of unfairness. Orbital Spittle comes to mind as a one-shot squad killer that actually isn't, but should be.

And I'm talking in Normal difficulty. I don't know what happens in Advanced/Elite.

I do have to agree with some of things said here, like for instance the pvp wait time and shooting mobs over and over with yer high tech phaser and them not dying. Ide suggest them maybe putting in "dodge" and "cover" in the ground combat to make up for the lower hp enemies would have. and perhaps making shields more important, or more apparent visually. If you see your hitting a personal shield bubble around your enemy at least you dont feel like your firing peanuts. Atm you hit them and the only way to know your hitting a shield is that you see the little blue bar go down.

They are however hard at work with the next big patcho (wich is ground combat version 2.0) i guess we'll have to wait and see

Ide offer up suggestions for the pvp queue aswell but tbh i think the problem is a bit to complex for me to help in any way. trick is to just go out n do some exploration while your in pvp queue i guess ?

It would be, except for the fact that there's this nasty little bug that pops up often that kicks you out of a queue when you zone. This means that, when it starts popping up, you're best bet is to not do anything while in a queue (a queue that, at least for me, has had up to 2+ hour waits to get into a match).

Wrap your head around THAT.

Ok...Today, I'm doing a mission where I must escort a cardassian woman to a temple on Bajor, and then, she betrays everyone to deliver the Pah Wraith. Cool mission at first...but then...

My first BOff decided that she was tired, and just remained in position, doing nothing. I tried everything to make her moving, no way.
My second BOff fell into the flames of hell...Ok, it was in combat, so no problem with that.
My third and fourth BOff, getting tired of all the fights against the Cardies, decided to have some rest, like the first BOff...So I had to take down a whole platoon of Guls alone, before returning to these two stupid guys...just to see one had comitted suicide, and jumped into the flames.

All of this in less than 5 minutes.

Please, Cryptic...Do something...it's getting boring...(sorry I'm no so patient when I have to pay to play a game I've already bought...)
