I'm a team player. I was a team player in other games and try to maximize that approach in this game. I have fun in heal builds, but I also like to blow stuff up.

I won't use exploits. I could outfit several ships with snb doffs, but would never do that even if the community turned to doing it. At that point the game would be dead to me. I'd just play Black Ops 2 or Halo 4.

I like to have a tough little ship that blows people up..

Sisko was my STO hero. He was so bad ass he punched Q and got a way with it.

He even became a God like being and transended..

So there.
You think that your beta test was bad?

I'm an afker in pug/premade PvP matches.

When I'm under attack at my spawn, I suddenly come out from being AFK not wanting to die. Only to annoy people with maximum amounts of spam, trics, sn doffs, and voldemort. When I respawn at another location, I go back to being afk. -_-

Don't hate me.

I love Borticus and hate PvP.

i was hoping someone would bring up borked gear and powers.......

which is kinda why i asked how morality impacts you in PVP.... and since its thanksgiving, i thought it might bring out the best in us.

unfortunately, this game still has lots of balance issues. there are 8 million things going on, and sometimes its hard to even know where to begin to tackle the list of: this is really messed up....

last night while pugging it and raging in OPVP with maverick and lantern about politics, in several matches i found myself recieving a combo that looked like this:

you have now been:
grav pulsed
time bubble thingied
caught in a tykens (btw, who the f is running tykens right now anyways?)
being hit with that vesta def dish beam
slammed by tric mines
slowed by chron mines
grav pulsed again
did that guy just use jam sensors?

and the thing was..... i was still alive.

it was just 45 seconds of me staring at the screen and smiling while hitting distribute shields. and this happend twice, maybe 3 times last night.... in Solar Wind.....idunno, i was a little drunk.

so when it all comes down to it, they are all just little toys that really do not mean crap unless you put them in the hands of a team that can coordinate and make the best of them.

thats why everyone says: man, i was just cheesed to death, because eventually, there will be a hole in that cheese, and you will either get out, or die. leaving no actual GAMING SKILL being lent to the kill.

which is WAY UBER LAME!!!!!!!

how can this be what we want from our matches? all i want to do is have fun kill bad guys.

I absolutely love having a good healer that's got my back as I fly a tac escort. It's really something else. Because of how awesome I think it is to play with a good healer on my team I decided to make a heal boat myself and return the favor. Unfortunately, it gets very little use. I'm not in any premades but do fly some pugmades from time to time, which is quite enjoyable, except for one little thing: the competition, or lack thereof. I team with some really good players in my pugmades like Hei Qin and dontdrunk, and over 90% of the time there is no reason to run a healer unless we're fighting another pugmade or premade, which rarely happens even though I post requests/challenges in opvp.

I'm not really sure what I'm trying to say other than I wish I could fly my healer more and there was some sort of infrastructure that put teams up against teams and solo pugs up against other solo pugs. That would really add a lot to the experience imo for both sides. If I use my healer as a solo pug, it's a complete crapshoot as to whether there will be any DPS on the pug team, which is why I usually fly an escort when I'm soloing it. I'm just a little sad at the current state of pvp because it has so much potential, but I'll get over it.

Yeah, there's so much that's a complete mess in STO I wouldn't know where to start were I asked to help clean it up. I mean, chain nukes are legit, don't get me wrong, and so are trikes... sorta...

Well, I'm just a shoulder to lean on. Sometimes the state of the game bums me out but I get over it pretty pronto.

I've also seen a Crits team field five (?) Tyken'ses at once and, yeah... it gets pretty nasty. lol

Hehe, you'd have a lot more luck running into him if you logged into a certain other game... I'll stop there to prevent the derailment of Horizon's thread.

On topic: P2W is a part of the game now. There is more of it available to use than not (or close to). Honestly the overwhelming number of abilities that can be thrown at you, many with no counters, is why I stopped pewing in this game. It became a spamfest... one that frequently bottlenecks my internet connection during primetime hours (my isp oversold bandwidth in my area and there are no alternatives), causing me to ping spike well into the several second range (I had the same connection before the addition of Danubes and Uni Consoles, but never noticed I was having bandwidth issues until the spam levels went off the charts).

My primary hope is that Cryptic and PWE will wake up, see the potential of STO space Pew, and fix it. Because I really, really want to play (even if only between midnight and 6 pm, thanks Windstream), 3 years of trying should testify to that. I just stopped having fun, and the availability of "free" extra abilities went a long way in contributing to that feeling (see Horizon's list above). When you combine them with the fact that Consoles were doing better CC than my Sci Boff abilities my role felt diluted as a Sci/Sci captain. Useful still? Yes, but very diluted.

Anyway, keep up the good fight, kill those bad guys, and don't let them take your fun away too.
