Fighting all those npc's has taught you bad habits and been a disservice to your skill level, it doesnít matter how bad your items or weapons are, you will win every time. iíd love for everyone to give it an honest chance, and to ask questions if you cant figure out what your doing wrong, there are plenty of people on here happy to help get more people into pvp
Preface: I have a Fed toon that I leveled to VA exclusively via PVP. I also have a LG KDF toon that I leveled with some PVP, and a lot of explore and PiCanis missions.

PVP has definitely required a higher skill to play compared to regular PVE. However, winning or losing is highly dependent on your team. It doesn't matter how good you are if your team doesn't work together. And PUG teams are hit or miss from that standpoint. Sometimes, you find yourself on a good team, and you basically stay together and keep queing up. Other times, you find yourself on a crap team, leave the team after the match, que up, and find yourself back on the same team again - sukage.

Sometimes, after a long day, I just want to log on a blow stuff up. PVE is too easy? Well, I don't care. As long they blow up, and I don't, it helps me relieve some stress. On those days, nope - no PVP for me. I imagine for A LOT of people, the "I win" feeling trumps the "It ain't a challenge" feeling most of the time.

i can understand that, but after more then 1000 hours of play time, killing npcs offers no satisfaction for me.

Almost 1900 hours of play time here. The AI doesn't interest me at all anymore. PVP is why I stay subbed.

Call me cynical, but I suspect they're the only members of their fleet.

I hear ya. I made the same mistake with my first character. Of course I come from the old school of arena shooters, where getting your arse handed to you at first is expected so I didn't get too turned off by starting PvP late with my first char. I stuck with it and learned how to stay alive - some of the time - and played for a while and had fun too.

But I've gotten a little sick of FvF, so I have rolled Klingon chars. I'm doing PvP as many times as possible through each rank with them. I just wish I could find matches like I can in other games or shooters. I can play until I get sick of it on a daily basis in those games.

Perhaps they need to make a mandatory PvP part in a modified tutorial or an early part of the game to get people's feet wet. It's not so "bad" once you jump in.

Ugh you missed the good stuff Snog.....in my day all we did was lvl pvp game was new tons of pvp going on.games poped so fast KDF side that you had to stand by the the vendor just to make sure you were geared up.

lvling was easy then infact we lvled so fast had to wait for feds to lvl and get into the next rank of games.

Why? Because we don't want to.

When you pay other people's subs for them, then you can dictate how they play.



I am not against PvP...I just don't find it as exciting as others do...I used to...but I lost my enthusiasm for it long ago.
