We all played the Arena PvP Map before...
above that broken Planet (seriously how are so many Planets broken to pieces in STO?)... with Players pushing the battle upwards all the time.

Which is ridiculous if you respawn only to see that you have to corkscrew your way +80k UP to get back into the battle (probably only to die 5 seconds later because all your teammates are somewhere on the same way behind you)....


So my request: Make a new Arena PvP Map:

The BADLANDS !!!

On top and on the Bottom you have that... Plasma or whatever Storm raging it damages your ship if you fly to low or to high. -> problem solved.

+ for the random lolz some of these Tornadoes can pop up and rip a few ships to pieces. (especially if a "FED / KDF Ball of Death" is forming, this would be good to spread them out a little further).


-> http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Badlands


of course in such an environment Tractor Beam Repulsors could get seriously OP... but that is something for the Dev's to worry about ;P



The Devs said repeatedly that there would be a new PvP Map for the DS9 Series, what better place than the Badlands to do this?

Even The Map already exists, it just needs a bit of tweaking.

Totsally approve of more variety of PvP maps. They don;t need to have new features necesarily, just different config of terrain.

Of course I would LOVE to see a fighter map in an asteroid field - esp. if you had collision damage!

Nonetheless, just churning out a few new ones with no new mechanics would at least spice it up a bit.

Awesome idea





And ever since the galactic economy collapsed there just has not been a demand for quality world building and sadly cheap knock-offs abound. :p

Idea; Approved.

I especially like the idea of limiting the corkscrewing, and forcing people to think fast or die laughably with the plasma storms.

Add this to the list of

- Rura Penthe ground pvp
- Andoria ground pvp
- Vulcan ground pvp
- Quonos ground pvp
- the space pvp space siege being re-added
- king of the hill pvp that was supposed to be added
- Kerrat reworked
- open pvp added

Good idea, for Badlands but in almost 2 full years we've gotten ONE new pvp map and lost a pvp map with nothing but failed promises since. Basically, don't get your hopes up is all I'm saying.

Well-played. most of those items have been in Engineering reports too.

Toss in snix's PvP Tournaments mentioned last summer--as in 2010.
And Featured Episode Maps for PvP (i.e. Haarkona Station/Coliseum).

I like this idea.

I also would like to see the Mutra Nebula Arena.
You'd have static on your screen, your map would be useless, you'd have reduced visual range so you wouldn't be able to see a foe until you were right up on them in some cases, and your shields would be either reduced or gone lol.
