# 1 Level Locked Queues
01-10-2012, 02:34 PM
After seeing this thread (http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=247677) I thought: why not add PvP queues for different levels? Queue up for Commander level PvP, and you'd be downgraded to Commander level for the duration of the match, for example.

doesnt matter, you can level in less than a week tops. i work 40 hrs a week, ahve a 5 year old kid, demanding wife... and still level a toon every month AND play 30-40 hours of pvp with my VA or LG toons.

im going to be straightforward and honest here....

wtf?

In the thread I linked, and others that I've read, as well as some comments in game, I've seen people talking about lower level (commander specifically) PvP as a great place to PvP (in space, anyways). So I figured, rather than only experiencing it once as you level up, allow people to head back down to lower level PvP if they want to?

It would be nice if it was possible. But the regular "downleveling" logic the game already supports via the squad system won't suffice. It has to take away powers we wouldn't have at that level, and skill points we wouldn't have.

I don't think skill points would be too much trouble if players had them. The powers could be done by downgrading ships - make each ship have the same BO slots as its science/cruiser/escort counterpart at a lower level, or black out powers for the highest level BO entirely. I don't know.

Just make people take a level appropriate ship or kit; and disable captain powers that are awarded at higher ranks. The skill points really might be an issue though.

That is fine but every capt at VA will have fully specced into skills and also have every capt power available. It would be a blood bath.
