That won't happen! If pvp starts giving useful rewards, a large portion of the players will show up, and then everyone will find out how neglected PvP really is! No, we got to herd the flock towards the new and shiny content! :p

but from what i understand, its been 3 years of neglect that has led to the low pvp turnout...

people dont play it because nothing has been done to it and nothing has been done to it because noone plays it....

Well, in my opinion one of the biggest issues is the lack of pvp-centric content. Or even tangentially pvp-centric content. When the fleet system came out, pvp was sadly neglected. They could have had a fleet-vs-fleet pvp system that awarded fleet marks, and I'm sure many fleets would have jumped at the chance, but they didn't.

And now we've got Omega and Romulan marks going, and still no PvP content. We're cycling through the same maps over and over, and the only thing changing are the ships. There is SUCH a wealth of potential for PvP and they're not taking advantage of it, and it produces a vicious cycle.

If you are on a FE mission, or Story line... then perhaps you have multiple entry options (exactly how it is today). But Patrol missions (which should have daily awards) you are going to patrol the system (ground/space)... which has NPC's as well as the potential for other factions being on patrol as well.

But there needs to be objectives (preferably different ones for each side) (aside from getting blown up every few minutes (Full Disclosure, I am not the best at PVP).

I still think they could do this in so many other "zones". Why couldn't there be a PVP Starbase Blockade (Attackers get points for destroying freighters, defenders for saving). PVP Starbase Incusursion (Defenders, same goal as today (stop the incursion) attackers, plant bombs). Colony Defense seems ripe as well...

Sigh... if only
