I think we've been promised twice now that the FvK queues were being removed from the low levels. Both times, this has not happened. Don't hold your breath when the inevitable third promise comes and goes unfulfilled.

Fanfiction! ZOMG! Read it now!
What I find most worrying is not that there are Feds queued for FvK at a level where we all know there are no Klingons in existence - as has been mentioned above, Cryptic are aware of it and have even promised to look at it before but since its PvP (and Klingon), don't expect a quick response.
The worrying bit from my point of view is that it says the average wait time is 20 minutes for both FvK arena and FvK cap n hold, when neither can possibly start! Should not the wait time show as infinity??? Just goes to show that the wait times displayed are pretty much random numbers, designed to persuade you to stay queued, rather than any meaningful estimate...
Come on Cryptic, such things don't exactly show you guys in a good light.

Here before PWE (and hopefully) here long after PWE is gone.
The state of PVP isn't good, and it's atrocious below LtGen/VAdm.
I still remember the early days of STO PVP when all tiers, including Lieutenant, were popping in PVP. There were alot more KDF players back then, qued up for PVP with an ungodly amount of Feds waiting in line. Through all tiers, and I still have fond memories of PVP at the Captain ranks in those days.
Rolling an alt now and trying to rely on heavy PVP for your progression will stall you completely below the Gen/Adm ranks. It just rarely happens anymore.
I made a post last week and Borticus replied saying this should've been fixed and he'll take a look. Maybe after he gets back from vacation.
And it took me 1+ hours to fire up a match as FED commander, with real klings in the queues. Its a shame there are not many players leveling through PvP, but to be honest you kinda get squat for doing it, other than some EC.

We fight, we love, and then we kill...
Yeah... they really should remove the FvK queues below commander level, what with KDF not existing below that and all, just a thought.
Are you mad?? The less contact between Devs and code the better! For all their good intentions if they tried to do something like what you suggest we may end up with the queues not working at all and not getting fixed for a few months... if ever!
