Many people have been asking when we will be able to challenge our friends to 1v1 pvp. Cryptic has replied that this is not on their immediate agenda - 'not top of their list'.
Well for those of us that want this why not simply remove the 'minimum number' from private pvp matches? At the moment if you create private pvp you have to have the same number of players as though it were an open pvp match you have queued for. Why? I'll repeat that as it is the core of this post... why?
Surely this would be a simple way of allowing us to pvp 1v1 immediately - just remove this requirement to have a set number from the process.
I'm wondering if the gameplay just doesn't add up 1v1 and that is why this simple mechanic is not in the game..... i.e. a good cruiser will kill a good escourt all the time, a good sci ship will kill everything all the time etc etc.......
(PS, Devs, in create private pvp it uses the word MAXIMUM - When it is both a MAXIMUM and a MINIMUM requirement.)
Okay for over an hour a friend of mine and I tried to create a friendly match to no avail. I highly agree that the solution is to create a private game and allow the minimum number of players to be scaled by the game host This is something that I KNOW a lot of pvp players would like to see so they can test out their ships and play with their friends, as well as conduct role playing battle scenarios. (yep, even role players want to be able to blast their klingon nemesis.. or chase down a rogue federation captain from time to time..)
Please move this "onto your list" of things that we'd like to be able to do. Thanks Cryptic!
This would be a great thing for them to do. All they have to do is remove the # restriction in the private queue. Another way they could do it is by turning on Andoria. It's there.....its set up....all they have to do is turn it on. It looks great btw.....all icy and crowds waiting for the duels to begin.
