Hi all.
I'm noticing a decrease in the already small amount of PvP players.
Whats alarming the most is its Starfleet players as much as the minority Klingon player.
I was wondering if Cryptic have any ideas to breathe new life into PvP?
I've had to give up and leave the queue after extreme wait times alot this week.
Is Cryptic considering PvP a low priority issue?

I've said it from the beginning. There are two things that are needed to save PvP.

First, we need BALANCE. Klingon ships have a HUGE advantage, especially at lower level. When you're able to outdamage your foes in excess of 10-1 without any real effort, it points to a problem. If you leave that discrepancy be because it evens out at higher level, you will still lose PvPers, because no one will get to higher levels. The low level imbalance will scare off the people who might have carried on if it was balanced. This is absolutely critical.

Second, we need something to fight FOR. We're at war, but there's not really any reason to fight. No systems change hands, it's just empty combat. This is highly suggested.

I think trekkies in general consider pvp a low priority issue.
Its like trying to sell candy to a kid who has no teeth, can he eat it? Yea but its going to take some time.
Then again, I know many people expected pvp to be totally different than was presented here and then you have to deal with the whole balance mess and its a never ending debate about stats,overpowered/underpowered items, wah and moar wah.

Personally, I hope PvP dies altogether. I'm tired of game developers making sweeping nerfs (i.e. SWG's NGE and STO's escort DPS nerf) solely because of the great minority known as PvP whiners.

I disagree it is caused or has anything to do with Klingons being OP at lower levels. I don't think there is even a balance issue any more after the latest nerf bat.

At this point I think there needs to be more space maps and I think some of them need to have smaller overall populations to play. Instead of 20 players total make it smaller denominations.

Man pvp has everything to do with someone being overpowered at any level. I maintain that its a never ending cycle of insanity. A downward spiral even.I cant speak for anyone else but since I started gaming in uo, ive grown sick overtime of hearing all the wahh that is associated with pvp and its overall effects on the game in general. PvP balancing ruins games. I have never seen games get better because of balance passes and item stat tweaking. I think its just caused more bitterness, boredom and cancellations in the long run.

I have stopped PvPing with my RA5s and BG5 for the moment. This is mainly due to the queues, I spend ages for the queue to pop only for it to be an unbalanced match.

Something needs to be done to bring more people into the PvP queues. And the leet Gods of PvP need to learn not to chase them away.

Yea, whiners of the wah wah variety. They come in all types of fruity shapes and sizes.

PvP to a dev is like a father taking his son to gamestop, the kid says i want that game! so he buys the kid a game, then the kid gets home and sees that latest game commercial and now the father has to run back to gamestop.

Thats never ending insanity! lol
wah and moar wah Cry moar!?

Oh god please no just stop. shhhh, hush, logout, cancel, go away stoppit, quit, no, just.. ffs leave the game alonnnnnneeeahhh. hahaha
