# 1 Pvp
08-18-2010, 08:28 AM
Whats the point i can never get into a pvp match because no one ever plays pvp

so Why link quests for valor points to pvp quests when we cant get any pvp , and if we do then its the same old boring gank and run match

as for getting to VA Rank , cant see the point because i dont get anymore Valor points for purple gear ,

and all the X1 gear ( that i have already and can use at upper admiral ( but can only obtain by doing more mind meltingly boring dailys at VA )


I actually thought it would be worth resubscripting to STO but i was mistaken its still a very average mmo

still only a few more months till The old republic comes out cant wait

I have lined up for PVP several times today, and yesterday. Yesterday the Choice Dialog Box came up 3 times, and the first and last, I clicked "Engage", to no avail. The second time it came up, it was gone so fast I did not have time to even click a choice. I have no idea what the problem is, but if the box does not take me into an incident, I guess it might still be broken???

There's a fix on tribble. It looks like it's working, but honestly, as long as we "queue" up to fight in an "arena", then we might as well not be at war.

Of course, the War is just hype by the Starfleet Media. After all if we were really at war then why do we have an exchange program with the enemy? :p

But yes, I made a thread a while ago on the Tribble thread that PvP matches at VA isn't going towards accolades like they supposed to.


As for PvP, Season 2 really borked it up as a whole. Resistance Stacking is insane now with Cruisers and even BoP's (don't tell me about their fragility) are able to tank powerfully. Escorts with the new tactical buffs in a surprise attack (IE Cloaked Attacks) can be extremely devastating with insane numbers (I have seen my regular cannon fire in the 5 digits).

And then there is the borked up queue, which some say the fix still needs work on Tribble.


All in all, Cryptic needs to ditch the Arena system and go Open PvP.

azurian dude what in gods earth do you want , do you want the fabled IWIN button ?
cause after reading 2 of your posts this morning thats what it sounds like to me .

you say resistance stacking is shocking in this post (but in the other post your cruiser cant last)
then you say your escorts do so much damage & bops can tank

maybe a bop can tank vs your cruiser but there are many cruisers out there they cant tank.

news flash a lot comes down to trial & error .. one all my bops use phasers why (because of that chance to disable subsystems).

1 of my bops the tac has 2 rsp infact here im no where near the best pvp player but these are my bop setups.

tac bop

commander :tac team / thy2 / crf2 / csv 3
lt comm : eng team / rsp1 / rsp 2
lt :eng team / eps2
lt: sci team / HE 2

engineer bop

commander : tac team / THY 2 / crf2 / crf3
lt comm : eng team / rsp1 / eps3
lt:eng team / eps
lt sci team / HE2

lol infact my sci bop is exact same as my engineer bop but after playing with the assault cruiser last night i think im gonna pop one in to a neg.

As I told you in game man, it needs to feel like Star Trek again. Instead it's Star Wars.

BoP's are powerful and yet instead of doing hit and runs, they end up tanking another player's ship. Get two or three of them and it's just plain ridiculous.

And then there is the crappy shield systems. It all needs revamped to feel like trek again.

needs to feel like star trek again ? what does that mean exactly what the feds have a 99% chance of killing everything that comes in there path ? a button on there control hud called IWIN ?
cause going by 99% of fed players thats what they want because thats pretty much what was in the tv shows.

Simple fact is how boring this game would be if that was so ... to the point most feds when they hit pvp are noobs some learn how to build there ships & become very good pvp players.
then the majority scream klings are OP (ie) there is nothing wrong with my build so it must be the klings are OP.

I was also one of those feds .. is still dont claim i am great at pvp but to some of the fed only players i must seem well OP.
Then when i meet some one who has a good ship build & they whoop me .. i dont come crying nerf or crying they are OP .. i sit down & look at my ship builds.
Try to see where i can improve on it .. then some times i just think mah screw it i do good damage i do good healing.
Not the highest but defo not the lowest..

Seems to me the way your going on you want to be able to put points in everything & anything then just jumble up some fancy sounding BO set up & say see i should win.
Because im me .. not because you have what it takes just because your you.. like so many fed only players
i though with you having maxed out a kling you would have grabbed a jist of pvp.

Like my first pvp was after my first toon made RA5 .. & man i though omg my ship rocks .. then i got in pvp vs kling (game was like 3 weeks released by then ( omg what an eye opener that was)
To say i died very quickly & many times is being nice..
i didnt come here putting multiple posts saying this is not right thats not right this is not the way it goes on the tv shows .. this is NOT startrek.
No i sat down looked at my ship & rebuilt .. tinkered with it here & there (BO) wise.
I then sat down & started my own kling alt & that was an eye opener for me pvpin most of the way through the ranks.

blah iv typed to much point is take what is known to work then adapt it to suit your needs best.
& please for the love of god stop with the posts every other day about how bad things are ..

OH & DEVS MY FEDS ARE SO , SO OP please un`nerf my klings

I have seen a undead cruiser tank three BoPs at the same time of course they cant kill any of them because all their skills are in tanking. There is no way a cruiser should be able to do that, but it happens and no Klingons are on these threads QQing away so suck up and get to work. I will agree on the OPEN PVP PLEASE!

# 10 Open PVP
08-20-2010, 04:19 AM
I think the current PvP is not providing the combat interaction I desire. It is too confining, and it makes me long for the Star Fleet Command days in the Dynaverse. Now I would hope Cryptic would be able to develop a scheme more exciting than turnig a hex blue, but the current system not what I was hoping for. Dev's, please give us an open PVP where real combat can take place for gains in territory/asset control and glory can occure.
