Cryptic will only ever do anything if the player base is there,

It's all about making the wonga

Which is a massive catch 22. There would be a bigger playerbase there if they did anything to improve pvp

Sad really

i call bs.

thats the "excuse" theyve given us before but its also THEIR fault the pvp player base is so low.

thats like offering a hungry kid a bag of empty cheetos and telling him he should have taken his time in eating them.


they need to endorse pvp, they need to hold pvp events (not just shuttle wars) they need to make things FOR pvp, not just consider it half-assed after the fact when they release something "cool" for pve....


but they wont. history is constantly repeating itself with this game and pvp. i look forward to the next broken gimmik introduced to this game (ie the romulans and all their BS)

Where is the money in fixing pvp?

A very small minority of people playing STO dare into PVP content, so polishing that system under Cryptic philosophy will not generate revenue. Nevermind their 'if you build it they will come' philosophy they spew during Neverwinter interviews, fixing pvp and making it awesome will not encourage people to spend more money.

theyve monetized everything else.

I'm pretty sure religious posts aren't allowed. Divine isn't an adjective I'd use to describe cryptic either.

only time you have any fun any more is messing arround in karrat if getting ganked see how long you can live and try to take a few with you if no gank happening change instance tell gank occurs!

Another is when you do a fleet vs fleet premade with a dam rule book the size of obamacare!

It's a vicious cycle. Because there is no development, fewer people enter PvP. Because of that, PvP development profitability drops. Because of that, development is cut back even further. And so the cycle goes down and down.....
PvP-ready toons: Ishmael - Betazoid Sci - Vesta - U.S.S. Yukikaze - The unsinkable destroyer - T'Scurr - Romulan Tac - Mogai - I.R.W. Archer - Countervape overwatch - Ffairl - Romulan Sci - T'Varo - R.R.W. Yuudachi - The nightmare of Solomon

Take it easy!
