No one so far seems to like the idea but it would solve that problem.
As your level increase you can use higher level equipment on the lower tier ships. Also as you level up your character gets additional powers (spells). The BOs are limited by the station they occupy.

So, a high tier player flying a T1 or T2 ship has better weapons, engines, shields, consols. And he has more powers (spells). Under the current PvP 1 or 2 upper tier players would be overpowering to lower tier people they are in battle with.

What I think STO needs are some all-tier PvP areas. Not 5 on 5, but many on many battles (ground and space) on big maps where several low tier players can escort larger ships and gang up on upper tier players.

Some 1 on 1 challenge arenas and maybe a 40 player all-on-all (last man/Klingon/whatever standing) cage fight. You know, sporting events where Fleets can organize bat'leth or other tournaments.

That would work too.

I covered the limits needed more detailed in another post.

Basically its :

Have your character play at the top rank of the ship your flying in pvp, limit weapons for the pvp to the top one for that ships rank.

I know that everything is backward compatible but putting a check in there to make sure the player has the right equipment to qualify for the pvp wouldnt be hard. This owuldnt effect pve just pvp.

# 13 Klingons in July?
03-21-2010, 07:40 PM
My friend told me he read on the forums, but can't remember which thread or where that a Dev came out and sort of stated that we Klingons should be receiving the in-depth pve experience much like the feds have in July (ball park figure).
Now with that said...I am still scouring the various forums looking for this, and if anyone else has seen it by all means please link it please.
IF it is true, then while it is still far out (3 and a half months) at least it would have been some sort of guideline for when we are going to see it.
Sure, it's not here now, but if I can find it at least I can be happy that some sort of answer has been given and a timeframe.
Havent found it so I don't know.

# 14 Klingons in Season 2
03-21-2010, 07:56 PM
Ahh here it is.

http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=140294


And yes before we all start lamenting the wait...our last big request we have been asking for is communication. Here it is. I will wait to see now. Will I wait in or out of game? Dunno. But our question has been asked and answered for the time being.
Sure, we would have liked more and sooner.....but who wouldnt in our positions. But now I have an informed position to go on.
Let us look towards Season 2. If it isnt there by then...well.....we will see, we will see.

OP this has been requested adnauseum since the beginning of the Forums. I doubt it'll happen and if it does it'll only be because the loss of player base is so so significant that they have to have draw for new players.

QorChang , it's folks like you that allow MMO devs to pull this crap . The more I see of people posting crap like this , makes me think , you get what you deserve. Which won't be much .

Ok Vuk,
Now your talking out the ridges on your backside.

You obviously have not read my past posts on this subject. I have been vocal...to the point and in no way soft or pulled any punches when I got frustrated over all this. You are speaking from emotion, nothing more.

I posted this because we demanded an answer...and an answer has been given.
And it's the FIRST time we have been given a serious answer. I have told no one to stay...or go.
I have even said in the post it should have happened a long time ago....but thats an old rant. Nothing will change what is or what was. Our latest request was for an answer. And the answer was given.
If you read what I said you'll also see I never even said I believe them 100%. You heard me say We'll see.
You didnt hear me say "Everyone should stay!" I even said I didnt know if I would stay that long.

Your post paints it out to be a call for us all to stay...my post was a message of "Hey! They finally said something!"
I personally wouldnt dream of advising any of the KDF to stay or go at this point. Each to decide on their own, but at least we have some information besides utter silence to make that decision.

I think your a little quick on the ole flame thrower there pal. If your that fed up, you have the same protest ability we all do. Which is only to cancel our subs, beyond that we really dont have a stronger form of protest.
I'll play a little longer...this is true....will it be all the way to July? I honestly couldnt say. I'll take it one day at a time.
My only advise to you would be try not to be so quick on the trigger. I have yelled as loud as the next and been as self righteous in my protests as any.
Again...I was just trying to spread the info that the devs FINALLY said SOMETHING about the KDF.

It's not personnal , although you may interpret it that way , it's about the game that Cryptic plays and the people that fall into that frame of mind of hanging on their words . This may or may not include you , only you really know. It's the last sentence that sums up the problem of your post . It's not like Cryptic has never discussed Klingons , it's the manner they discussed them . It's the utter comtemptuous manner in which they've addressed the faction that's the issue. It's the post that you have here that only encourages the behaviour, and tells Cryptic that you're willing to submit to their abuse as long as they say the right things.

Well thats just kind of it Vuk, you called me out personally so it IS personal LOL
Granted I can see where you might interpret it as call of support, but I also see in the conversation ensuing that the intent has now been clearly defined I hope.
And you are completely correct in that the problem arises from the fact that it took cryptic so long to really say something to the members of the KDF about all this. I am simply giving cred where due in at least they finally DID communicate with us.
No of course I am not happy that it ook so long and so many voiced raised in protest before they did say something. But my last requests from them was almost a challenge to at least tell us something...they did. Ok. For some it will be enough...for others it won't.
All we can do is sit and wait. Many of my friends that game with me have also already cancelled their subs and will wait and watch.
I can say this.....with TOR coming, Cryptic needs to do this right or TOR will steal most the rest.
But I am sure they know this.
You and I agree in almost all points if you look back and posts we have both made.
I honestly had no intent other than pointing out Cryptics response, or better that they HAD indeed responded.
So now all the rest of the KDF can decide what each of us wants to do about it.
Other than that.......

Appreciated - it will take some time to get sufficient info for more entries, what with real life commitments, but I'd be delighted if I can manage to put some more info together.
