LOLOLOLOLOL are u serious? PVE in this game is a joke, you get mobs that are triple the hull of urs and dont use the skills PvPers use so how is it prepareing for PVP? just think...if they gave the npc's the ability to use our skills at the right time (Better AI) all the PVErs will cry "this game is way too hard" <<< OH wait, they do that now and the AI sucks

$$$ to buy PvP gear
...and of course that lucky purple gear drop.

PvE is so mindnumbing simple it's all about the grind for gear and passives, nothing more.

I don't PVP in STO right now..

Because I want to get my Reputation stuff done first.

That and I'm not happy with the way PVP is currently.
You think that your beta test was bad?

What makes you stay in STO for pvp?

Possible answers:
Too much invested financially in it to leave.
Too much invested time wise to leave it.
Love the way STO is right now.
I believe what the devs are promising will happen.
No other alternate out there.
PvP is only 1 part of the game I enjoy.
Most enjoyable game out there.
Friends in game.

For me it was the friends I made in game that was the last thing that kept me in the game. Previously, in years gone by, it used to be all of the above but sadly, over time each one disappeared apart from the last one and now most of them have gone / going.
i want to be the one that people dread running into in PVP. i'm not that guy now, but working towards that goal.

Freinds mainly but to be completely honest I'm now treating STO like my Booty-call PVP source for when I can't get better somehwere else.
When the itch hits I jump into the game but quickly become bored knowing that not much actually exists PvPwise in it and what does is woefully unbalanced on several levels.

My LTS.
I like shooting or healing stuff with my ships.
I can't completely abandon all of my effort in the game.

I don't have any expectations of any improvement to the gametype.

I only see more lockbox additions and z-store additions.

I've never been a gamer (being a code hore has been a lot of fun for me for many years) but the few games I have enjoyed are Fight Night (a local bar used to have tourneys which was a lot of FUN!) and UFC. But only against other players.

Supreme Ruler 2020, SOASE and Supreme commander were somewhat enjoyable as well. Never did any multiplayer with them but wanted to try. However this game came out around the time I picked them up, so STO has been a real time killer for me for almost 3 years!

That said, seeing the general direction and lack of any fixes on THE MOST BASIC stuff is pushing more and more of my friends off this game. We're suppose to be trying to help players get into PVP and the constant QQ is getting more and more frustrating. Just this morning, I was teamed with Qin, and apparently the fact that I team with a friend is EVIL and I guess ... W/E.

I have about 5 friends who regularly queue KDF and I only get on to team with them now. I will say I have had a couple really fun matches against the 110th, a Italian KDF premade, and a couple fairly fun pug matches the last week. That doesn't change the fact that 99% of the matches are MEH!

Otherwise the general state of the game is absolutely appalling, whereas, about two years ago kerrat and pugging arenas was just a absolute blast. Granted it could be frustrating getting a pug group teamed at the start! But still more fun than pugging now.

That match was fun and reminded me why I kept playing as long as I did. The problem is fun matches are not the norm anymore.
That was one of the best matches I had all day. Had great pvpers on both sides and was a hard match both teams going back and forth. And what no tric mines no voldi wow hmm so if cryptic fixes this stuff or people don't use it pvp is fun?!

Quit licking your windows cryptic!

- Friends
- Ability to customize builds in highly unique ways
- I still feel like I am learning a lot from the whole PvP experience
- I am a die-hard Star Trek fan and would simply have a hard time putting time into a non-Trek-based MMO.
- I have hope for the future of STO PvP
