I'm one of those who hates PvP with a flaming passion, but do it just to get my emblems.

Am I the only one who is tired of devs forcing PvP upon us? Yes, I know technically it's not forced, but it's 3/6 emblems a day I give up if I don't do it. Why is it they give a reward for PvP that's useful to PvE?


This is a message I've always tried to tell game devs.

Those of us who don't like PvP are not going to like it if we just try your version of it.

Forcing us into it is just going to give you more AFKers and "bads" who aren't really interested in it and are just going through the motions to get our 3 emblems.

Why are you grinding so hard for Emblems if you don't do PvP otherwise? Is it for ships? Cause gear is not really that important in PvE.

It's an MMO...it's always about gear.

Even PvP.

As there are other ways of getting emblems than "dirtying" myself with PvP, I don't.

Next question?

I'm a big believer that afk'er or the losing team shouldnt get full rewards. I think you should have to WIN 3 matches to get your emblems.

Your real request should be more pve ways to get emblems, while I personally feel like there are plenty of emblem dailies.

Don't Q up if you're not going to play, or "try". I understand that it may be "Easy" to get the emblems, but it ruins pvp for those of us who do enjoy it when Emblem grinders shoot once then afk.

PvP is horribly neglected at this point in the game, no new maps, modes, systems since launch, so for you to say stop forcing pvp upon makes me Grin, then reach for the stress ball.

there are emblem rewards for pvp'ers, and for pve'ers. But you've chosen to go for both, thats your perogative,
but don't complain that you dont' like doing it when you have that choice, I personally don't do any PVE when I can help it, but yet, there are those mish's were I want equiptment or Weapons and I have to grind PVE to get them....I.e Borg sets from stf's...I'll chase down emblems in pve dailies, and be bored out of my mind for it, but I won't go as far as to say im being forced to do anything.
with all due respect OP, whats your alternative, no emblem rewards for pvp? the Q's are already hard enough to get a pop, without afk'ers/emblem chasers/ect acting like victims.

If you want give up 3/6 emblems a day...and that does add up.

It's a long time pet peeve of mine...giving PvE rewards for PvP and from what I've read PvPers generally feel the same way about giving PvP rewards for PvE.

You require wins to get emblems....PvP will be a lot more dead than it is now. I assume most of us who dislike it at least try, even if we don't have the practice/gear/specs for it. If you require winning I'm pretty sure we'll all collectively say "screw it"

I more of the person that hops in every once inawhile to do a match or two. Mostly i dont find pvp all that interesting in this game. Though mostly because i seem to jump into matches with kilngons that always have BOP's and i hate when ppl can just run and hide. I do enjoy some of it every as an alternative every few days or so.

Honestly if you dont enjoy it dont do it. Yeah your not getting those but its better to not do something thats only gonna tick ya off in the end. Also like someone else said if your not willing or wanting your gonna interfere with the ppl who do love it. If you have to have them do like me just jump in and try to talk to the others and maybe with their help telling you ways to be successful youll enjoy it or atleast not loathe it so much. I didnt like pvp much back when i played another mmo but after friends started helping me with tactics to use i got really into it.

That's the other problem with it, people worse at PvP than me (no small accomplishment)...I was in a match this morning 13/9 our favor.

I'm not an expert, but I would think focusing on the science ships and escorts to knock out the last two points would be the way to go...and said so.

Yeah, my teammates were dutifullly plinking away at the cruisers doing....NOTHING.

We snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

Taking into account I'm not interested in the gear that is sold for emblems, and that no c-store ship interest me, I usually grind an average of zero emblems a day. Actually, it's close to zero, but not zero exactly, because I do b'tran cluster missions, and I intend to play the STFs, that reward emblems too.

Right now I find more rewarding playing the re-runs, leveling my alt, and helping new players.
