Yes pvp is dead...right now its impossible for lower level, medium levels and ( il find out shortly ) higher levels to complete there pvp dailys, for ground and space.

PVP is broken / dead. It needs attention or it will stay dead. Cryptic plz stop putting things in casino bags, the cstore and actually do something with your pvp.....might be an idea....
Crytic has done well in driving away nearely the entire KDF population.
They have given the Feds their Wargames so that they don't need us for PvP. As a Dev said "Live with it".
What you experience are2 years of Anti KDF work by Cryptic.

# 13 Pvp Is Poor
01-21-2012, 03:41 AM
I just started a kdf account and has lvled him to max within a week, as poor content seems to drive people not to play klingon. I have always liked pvp and as a klingon i join as often as i can but i have to wait over a hour to play so its both sides that lacking players, some of it has been explaind in past comments.

I;m one for hit and run lol cause i seem to get 6-1 so its gets annoying when u get blown up everytime though its part of 1 of my quests is to be killed by starfleet 25 times lol

but anyone who calls klingon cowards should step in and face us in battle to the death as you will lose

There are some guides on the forums on how to use these systems by using two versions of Aux to Dampeners (which would have a shared cooldown) plus Evasive and possibly plus Engine Battery.
Honest question: what do you mean by continualy? 2-3 minutes? longer?

First of all I'd like to point out that it's the Feds that are constantly whining that the KDF is OP like hell.

Second, I never PvP in public queues again because I'm sick and tired of being grouped with PuGs and getting threats flung to my head from angry PvP kiddiez afterwards. I think the majority of former KDF PvPers does follow me in this statement.

Third, what's the point of open queued PvP anyway? None. No special reward, no special incentive, nothing. Cryptic basically butchered PvP a long time ago and it isn't very likely that PvP will ever be a focalpoint of this game ever again. Maybe with a huge PvP package update but I severely doubt it'll pull in the PvP numbers they had at launch.

1: There are numerous Dev posts on this very forum detailing how it's impossible to "cheat." Grief, yes. Exploit a glitch, yes. But, actually "cheat?" No. The method of key binding is specifically setup to avoid an "I win button" and if you send a hypothetical "cheat" command to the server, it's just going to ignore it because no such command exists on it's end.

2: Hit and run tactics are what Klingons do. It's doubly encouraged by giving Birds of Prey (aka Raiders, get it?) a Battle Cloak. The question up thread was brilliant. Why should a lone ship hang out in a swarm of big mean cruisers, escorts, and science ships? To make the other players feel better and give the other team an easy kill? I think not!

3: I'm no PvP or Klingon expert only having really started a Klingon character in earnest this week (Captain 32, now!). But, I've been playing continuously since launch and I've been on more than my fair share of Fed teams that got rolled by Klingon PvPers who were masters at their craft because they had nothing else to do.

4: Again, I'm not an uber player, but I know what my personal, albeit anecdotal, observations have been. The Klingons in PvP actually work together, or at least have been playing PvP for far, far, far, far longer and more often than their average Fed counterpart. 9 times out of 10, when I'm on a Fed team, they don't even bother to team. How can I easily see who needs heals and where they are? Outside of the times my Public Fed team would get lucky and get a Science Officer setup to heal, not once in nearly two years has anyone in a public group lent me even one single heal in PvP.

Or, rather, my experience has been that public Federation teams take on the hero mentality. Every man for himself. The Klingons learned the hard way that doesn't work in this game, so for the most part, they adapted and they win.

Sounds more like EVERYONE is a coward, since there a is a same faction PvP queue as well and that never fills up either.

Have you ever flown a Klink Cruisar? Its not uncommon to see them with cannons. I get 26 degrees per second in my Vorcha. I can fly circles around fed cruisars. At least untill they hit my engines.

I am maybe 50/50, fed/klink. And i used to q every day. One thing to consider is the only way to get geared up with MKXII gear is elite level STF's. And it looks like its gonna take awhile.....

I'm sorry but this is simply not true, have you seen all the new gear that the kilinks have? I play my klinks as much or more than the rest of my toons. They where created after i knew what i wanted.

A whinny bunch, yes. Unloved, no.

We got a new first city, new ships, new consoles, new abilities. And we already had better ships....(that should stir it up a bit, lol)

The only thing i really need is new boots for my Orion slave girl. Them tall, sexy ho boots like the fed girls have. Than I'll be happy, lol
