I know a guy that really enjoyed it:

It actually started out as an interfleet game-thing. Then we thought getting a 10v10 going would be fun.

Thank you.

so....I find this thread, I join the channel. I ask does anyone have any constructive advice and I get a smart reply. Real friendly and helpful....so I want to say THANK YOU......You would think that being in an organized pvp channel that you could ask a question like that but.....I guess that's not the case wow....what a great reception. So I guess that new people aren't really welcome here. That's good to know, also it's good to know that asking questions about advice won't be answered or taken seriously. So since that's the case and my dollar is just as good as the next person's......Cryptic you need to put out MORE information about what it takes to succeed in PVP please.

The channel has lots of people in it... some times of day you may run into some that are not so helpful. Create a new thread in the PvP section... ask your questions in it. Most likely you will get some good feedback. This way people from any time of day will see your request for info.

I hope some of the non constructive responses where at least witty and funny. lol

It takes a bit of patience to succeed in PvP too. Sometimes people aren't all that great but most times they are. Don't give up. Don't be rude back (since that only begs for more of the same in return). It never hurts to ask but it doesn't always help instantly either.

Don't give up. Do keep a cool head.

If there were a popular 'complain about spam channel' OPVP would die :p

I don't know if it was you, but I replied to someone asking for general pvp advice to "be humble"

No it's not a put-down. You do know that most pilots in opvp are... well... pvp'ing in matches and can't really type if they're busy fighting

In PvE:
If you afk and autofire you will beat most NPCs in this game, ground or space
You're the center of attention
Everyone will praise you and compliment on what a great service you've done for the federation

In PvP:
You're NOT the center of attention
You WILL blow up a lot, because there's a very steep gap in terms of being effective in PvE and PvP
It's the only form of gameplay in STO that involves teams

"Be humble" means you swallow your pride if you get blown up, and think about how the guy killed you. What buffs did you see when you were targeting him? How did you setup your officers?

There are no tooltips or tutorials cryptic can put out regarding PvP, because they themselves don't pvp to any sense of respectability. Just look at PvE. That is how they view their customers. Not capable of being challenged more than autofire/afk.

We've all seen the famus pve video with no powers, but here's another one showing the INSANE difficulty of elite pve with my brilliant build:

ET1, RSP1, ET3, AtS3
ET1, AtB1, EPtS3

oh yeah, and i don't use shields, they're just not canon enough for me.
