Come on already - the care bears always get there way?

We PvPer still dont have any real combat. Look at Starfleet Command for example. When the game worked
( dynaverse ) is was a blast.

Look at Steve Coles Starfleet Battles - they has a gird system defining Klingon. Romulan, Fed, etc space.
When 2 or more factions met in the grid - we fought it out.

Where is this in this game. Well, you can thank the care bears for this.

Look at Battlestar Galatica online - Open PvP, they fight over sectors and resources like in any War.
Not this game. The only down side to BSG is that a lvl 40 can attack a lvl 10 in the PvP zones.
They do have safe zones for the care bears that do not want to enter the PvP zones.

Where is this War Spock keeps talking about in the game intro ?

I though by now we would have systems one side or the other can take over. Like in real War.

After so many star systems were conquered the war would reset.

As it is - PvP in this game is Still LAME.

The only good thing about this game as i c it - is that it is FREE to play.

Not to mention the Star Trek canon has been jacked up here. Why do Klingons use Phasers and Feds use Disruptors ? Wasn't the plasma torpedo a Romulan weapon ? What happened ?

The only true PC game that was canon.

PVP here has gotten no attention in so long, I don't even know when the last time was. There is pretty much zero ambition aimed at a solid PVP system it would appear.

It still irks me to hear the voiceover when a new character enters Eta Eridani:

Each death has meaning. Every victory can turn the tide.

These are the conflicts that will determine the fate of the quadrant.
They made Leonard Nimoy a liar.

While I'm of the ilk that believe everything could be better but finding
satisfaction in what we have leads to happiness...

..I find STO's PvP, in its current incarnation, is a strong base and one
that lends itself to future 'open' PvP game play.

I just wish they'd get a move on!

o_o As a newbie, I was running around this icey.. antennae white-haired
blue skinned planet, (ok, fine, if you're a LORE YO then I apologise - I like Star
Trek, I also like many many other things and while I'm sure they have a name..)

and these... rangers.. were warning how anyone can be challenged to
a duel 'here' so be careful.

As a clueless FTP bandwagon hopping loon, I spent a good 30min running around
looking for someone to challenge/be challenged by...

..no joy. Probably missing the point of the entire area but yes - there's a framework
within which Open PvP could readily be implemented - so, like, ya know?

::

Long story not so short - give Open PvP. Today. Or sooner.

Care bears? Do you mean the non PvP players, devs or what?

The term "care bear" is a many-years-old MMO community term referring to players who exclusively stick to PvE.

And I assume used by those that are 'lacking' in other departments so have to be dismissive of others play preferences to make themselves appear somehow superior?
