# 1 Match Timer
01-03-2011, 04:30 PM
This seems like a no brainer, we got these matches to 15 points and at low levels ground combat may be a 3 on 3 or something, suffice to say one side is usually going to be at a pretty clear disadvantage and they will all log off before the score is reached. The game just continues forever and we get no reward... kind of lame. At least end the match and give a pro rated reward if the entire other team is gone...

I'm not much for ground PvP, but I'd be down for a match timer in space if only because lower level matches against Klingons tend to drag out because they're "setting up" for ten minutes at a time and also because some VA Cap and Holds last a ridiculous amount of time.

A match timer is a horrible idea. I don't have a better one for dealing with people who grief, others who are impatient, or whatever else is a problem but a timer is not the answer.

Maybe instead of tacking on a Match Timer, they could instead bring out a new PVP map that is MENT to be timed. And I don't mean timed by a kill count, but an actual time limit. First team to X by the end of the Timer Wins. If a Tie occures, "Sudden Death" First team to Do "X" wins.

For example, in a 5v5 Ground match, Team with the most kills wins. If it's a tie, Team who gets the next kill wins.

Or a Capture the Flag type game..

Just a suggestion.. I honestly would rather then actually make New maps with new options then tack more complications onto maps already in the game.

Klingons run in, alpha strike a kill, and cloak for 15 minutes. Then to counter that feds bring all cloaked ships and then no shooting occurs at all. Then STO wins best PvP 2011.

I like it.

I am still a fan of the PvP map idea for a type of freighter escort. There is a natural timer on such a map - the time it takes the freighters to move from A to B.

^Yep.

For C&H it could simply be setup such that when the teams hold the same number of flags, both teams lose 1 point/second. In that way a C&H match would be guaranteed to end within a reasonable time (worst case would be around 40 minutes I think?)

So I can understand that a timer is not a good solution without something to combat the one kill and cloaking scenario. At the least if the entire enemy team leaves the match it should be a win for the team that remains, that we can agree on I think.

It is not so much an issue in cap and hold PVP because even if the other team leaves you can still win and get your reward.
