Indeed, even PvP'ers like to pay for stuff, even if they can just fly their favorite ship in PvP and NOT even for the reason because it would/should be more powerful, thats the stupid thing cryptic will never understand. I would pay 20 bucks for a Jemmy even if it was just as bad as the fleet or defiant or mvam escort simply because i like its appearance. Cryptic is just dumb.

In mechwarrior like i said before every mech is quite equal and you choose a mech not just because its good but because you like its appearance, and if you really want to get it fast (you can always get it for free) you can still spend money on it.

MWO = pay for EVERY SINGLE AMMO YOU SHOOT.
STO = free reloads of torpedoes.

MWO = Nvidia fairy or coconut bobblehead on your mech.
STO = so many costumes for your captain AND your entire crew.

MWO = No Bieber
STO = Bieber is here!

MWO = you can only fly your mech while you have jumpjets.
STO = you zoom through space at 14 times the speed of LIGHT!

MWO = new pvp maps
STO = so many maps randomly generated in exploration missions

MWO = you can't spam spacebar unless you keybind it
STO = SPACEBAR, MOAR SPACEBAR!

MWO = No OPVP chat
STO = OPVP chat AND zone chat

MWO = no heals
STO = Can i haz sci team? Yes, I can haz sci team

You know that's what I used to think too. Until I tried it. I was hooked within a few days. In fact the other day Jorf specifically mentioned how great it would be to try to get you in there playing.

Weapons are fairly balanced***********Weapons/Skills totally out of whack
Awesome PvP existent***************Hardly any decent PvP
Very nice tweaking system************Unbalanced Skill Tree which requires Money (Respec)
Queuing up = Instant game***********Wait 5/10 minutes, KDF 30+ often.
MWO Skill based, Aiming, Teamplay.*****Less Skill based, you get 'better' with better gear/lockbox/lobi ****.


For the most matches, you really need to get your self skills up in means of aiming your weapons properly, trying to avoid attacks, Long range missiles, and team play is a very important aspect. Even a reasonable decent team of friends versus a pug is not always a guarantee for a win, thats the nice thing about it.

For now the only game mode is assault and you can either kill all your opponents, or capture their base faster then they do, or do both. lol You can actually choose. Its like Arena + CnH from STO combined.

This is just the tip of the iceberg though :O
I see so much aspects which STO could be just as good at it is really unfortunate it isn't
+1 good job

at the very least a PVP rep system wouldn't be a grind to us, unless you consider pvp a grind. i don't think any of us do.
Its not the grind. Ive merely found my passion for STO has waned greatly of late.
Where I onced looked forward to playing I now find it too easy to find something else to do.
I might get on to DOff real quick but a quick kleenex to my keyboard later and Im feeling dirty but still leaving to do somethong else.

Well No offense to you but... If you think it is better, go play it and leave STO. Honestly we are on these forums for STO. MWO Forums is somewhere else where people who plays Mech cares about it...

I will stay to the bitter end for STO but talking about how better another game is better wont get things fixed. I really dont wana hear the "been here for 3 years" speech either. I have faith in Bran and the Dev team. They will get something done in 2013 I'm sure of it. But if you dont, MWO is waiting for ya bud.

This is aimed at all those who talk about MWO or GWO2 or whatever other game you think is better. go play it and stop talking about how it is better. It would be better obviously if you are still on these forums.
The Average PvP player

1) Teamwork and timing is #1
2) You cannot "Kirk It" in every ship
3) You are going to die, just get back up

Come join us roach. MWO's actually very casual, and it's not like we can't play both games.

Yes, I agree. It's bad to compare different products with other people so that maybe the inferior product can incorporate some of its competition's concepts.

Doing that can... gasp... lead to the product becoming better.
