Hi, I am about to create my first character and I am big into Player Vs Player. I am wondering if anyone could give me some advice as to what class or ship I should do as beginner and PvP minded player.

I am not new to PvP or MMOs, I have been playing over 10yrs.

Thank you much for any / all help, have a good one

hi there, welcome to the wonderful sto pvp community. first things first, join up on the OPVP chat channel in game. you'll find all kinds of awsome people on there that can give great advice,

now as to directly awnser your question, what kind of role do you like to play? healer, support, dps, crowd control, some sort of multi role combining 2 or more of those themes?

this awsner would greatly help determine which char type to level up.

I strongly suggest leveling a science officer. You can never, ever have too many science officers on a team. Science officers excel in any role, although I'd keep them out of cruisers because the slow turn rate makes subnuking a bit difficult. Sci escorts are deadly.

I can't think of a time I went up against a 5 sci team and won, and I can't think of a time I was on a 5 sci team and lost.

I'd also recommend Science, personally. It's quite a versatile class both on the ground and in space, in my experience. I primarily play space, and Science Captains get some rather useful inherent abilities to play with. As well, you can put them in just about any class of ship and create a fairly effective build.

In the end though, it really just depends on what you want to do, and how you want to do it.

Not good enough! You need 3 tacs, 3 engys, and 5 scis like me!

But science is definitely the best all-around class and is a good choice for a first toon.

Yeh, I agree.. Science or even Engineer for 1st toon.. Cruiser for the ship, since its a good platform to learn the capabilities of each class.

And I thought my 7 toons was excessive

I just need a klink eng to round off my toons.

2 tacs, 4 engineers, and 3 science here.

Just remember to make your captain alien so you can take accurate, efficient, and elusive traits.
