Is FvsK dried up?

Have we lost the ability to level?

No. I've found it's just as popular as ever. PVP's still kind of a small community in the game. That's all.

as far as leveling fvk is rolling fine. Im not sure about the xp comparison between pvp and exploration at that level since i just hit bg right after the patch, and have only done them at that rank.

the ultimate question between which is the best way depends on how long it takes to complete each respectively.

Pvp works nice cause there's always extra missions you can work to accomplish ( always a mission that rewards a few 100 skill points, for completing x amount of games, in addition to kill missions), and its relatively fast. i would avoid capture and hold while leveling (map is fun but playing a single battle for 30 minutes plus for 150 skill points gets annoying),as well as ground pvp (again takes a long time).

PvE: again times the biggest factor, but every exploration completed out of the 3 rewards xp (like fed side but you dont get any crappy data gather missions). At captain 10/11 to BG5 you're getting around 6-800 skill points by the time the mission is completed.

Outside of which ones gonna level you the fastest, you should also consider that you'll make grips of money pvping (conservatively estimate that i made at least 4-5 mill over the course of leveling), pve missions will be the same variation of kill space/ground, scan ground, and pvp while the same maps is you playing against characters which can be more exciting.

Also (although you can accomplish this with explore badges, just takes longer) if you level through pvping by the time you're mid level of your current rank you'll have gotten enough pvp badges to upgrade everything on your ship.

Unfortunately, the best way to level is roll a Federation faction Klingon and PvE. Probably gets boring after the 2nd or 3rd character, but not as boring as leveling your 2nd or 3rd Klingon faction character will be.

I notice that while you get XP for killing things in the various sectors, if you accept the "Defend the -X- sector" as a mission, then you get the XP while doing it, and you get a better bump of XP once you've completed killing 3 sets of squadrons, or whatever the mission is.

the best way is which ever way appeals to you. From a specific drop/points/badges/...etc. Honestly I can't tell you. I do exploration missions when I first crack rank... I prfer to go into PvP with the best equipment on my ship or person as possible. I find doing exploration missions takes very little time. If you've nothing to do for a week there is no reason you can't whip to BG in a week time. Just go with your instincts. I do Exploration with a little PvP for spice. I can run a group of three exploration missions averaging about 29 min.. usually 3 triplet explorations per level. 30 missions later you've bumped to the next rank. Takes a few more as you go up in level, but still pretty fast. And I have had plenty of Green drops even some blue drops out of exploration missions. More so then I had with my fed toons. SO I'm not displeased with what cryptic has done. I would of course have preferred more but for now is better then it was.
