Think I might hang my phasers up soon.

The saying "Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a new out come is bordering on insanity" is starting to describe me.
The amount of trust I had in cryptic saying to the effect "promise we'll get round to pvp soon" and not seeing anything materialise is a running joke now. Just look at Mav's forum signature of broken promises.

Hopes were high for me when Cryptic stated that fleet bases will have pvp elements to it. Now "later". Sound familiar? Mav get ready to add to the list of broken promises.

I really do feel that pvp will be dropped from STO. Cryptic are just leading us on to try and milk the last bit out of us.

The systems team don't know what they are doing. Sci resists - what a screw up. Made the sci toon about as useful as a chocolate fireguard. Unbeatable scenario on tribble - what a joke it is. I bet they were thinking, "but the numbers on my screen say no one can do it."

Gozer can add all the pvp content he wants, but if the systems team carry on screwing things up, what's the point? Gozer, good luck to ya buddy. Feels like you'll be truly against it.

Is there a big rift between the various teams at Cryptic? I dunno. Sure feels like it.

Cryptic, why do you think pvp is failing and then saying no one really plays that part of the game? Thought of the answer yet? Let me tell you. You spent hardly no resources on it since STO was released.

Almost come to same drastic conclusion as someone else did recently. The systems team needs putting it politely, sacking! Then we might have a chance. Systems guys, have you ever pvp'ed to see the "fruits" (more like lack of) of your labour?

For the rest of you guys, enjoy the table top Orion dancers at Drozana. That's about as much pvp action you'll get in the foreseeable future.

Even Jupiter Force has stopped airing STOked. Sign of things to come for STO?

Question is do I wanna carry on my STO subscription? I really don't want to stop it but way things are going,
Soon gonna terminate my monthly subscription. Way to go Cryptic.

Work and life forced me away for the last two months or so; and I've found that the longer I stay away, the less I want to log back in.

Back to a further crippled pvp system? No thanks. PVP probably won't be there when I leave and come back.

but Pvp is the way it is BECAUSE of listening to the various whines and complaints of our so esteemed holier than though PvP scene ..i am frankly ecstatic gozer has decided to take Pvp by the reigns and be hands on instead of flipping through the pvp sections various rants and whines and just nerfing something BECAUSE....and many players have agendas , they want the game to evolve around their build and what power THEY feeel they should only need and if a power turns up that makes them regret/rethink their build idea instead of respeccing into a better system they hop on here and cry until a system is nerfed into uselessness....just look at sci capatins...a derect result of PvP escort players...PEFECT example feedback pulse. YA you had to spec into it and basically cripple the rest of your powers just for it to be effective and because escort pilots couldnt 3 second pop you without dieing they cried on here to have it nerfed....as a matter of fact...if ANY ability effectiviliy counters the dreaded alpha strike from tactical escort players it is sure to be nerfed into uselessness....lets compare danube and siphon nerfs....siphons are still extremely op .. and renders them unable to move OR fight back as they are sitting on 0 power all across the board....and when danubes only hinder their movement NOT their ability to fight back you see hordes of klingons on here crying...when in actuallity the fighters/craft from the fed carrier are about half as effective as the fighters on the klink side



So ppl what i am getting at is i have great THANKs for gozer taking PvP by the reigns as it is dying due to PvP'er own agendas and mass rants to further break a broken system in favor of their favorite ships

I think i have said enough i hope everyone takes this at face value and dont bother trolling me becasue this will be my only post here and have a nice day

Unsub most of us did.... um the game is F2P and there is zero reason to give them money. If you have multiple toons which I am sure you have if you really decide you must have some cstore junk... play 2-4 toons each night for a couple nights and let some new F2P kid pay for your shiny stuffz.

I will say that I HATE Cryptic they are one of the worst game developers in the industry... I still like some of the underlying game elements and the people the game has attracted. Giving them Zero of my funds really does take an edge of the hate while I'm playing at least. lol

You must not have been here long.

The dev promise allot of things about pvp..

pvp hasnít change or been added to in 2 year...

Let me rephrase that they did add a map which was available in beta but cut before launch.

Power balance like old snb and VM + the HUGE NERF to sci capt but as a whole pvp is untouched same maps , same kerrat.

To the op , you'll be back I was gone for 6 months playing Tor and other MMO's but all it took was one night back in sto and I got hooked again.

It s a shame the devs do not relies the potential STO has in pvp instead they decided to ignore the one thing that makes people return, hoping the devs have done something. There is no other game I have seen with the commitment of this pvp community to make something out of nothing and try so hard to get something done for pvp.

At the beginning everyone had high hopes, now we feel like cryptic spit on the ip they have license. Its never the devs fault remember they can only do what the suits tell them and Atari was hemorrhaging money, so I doubt that helped. All we can do is hope PW puts the funds where it matters.

Last thing is if you think sto is broke, I say L2P STO. You must not be a vet. STO is so random itís like a box of chocolates, forest said it best " you never know what youíre gonna get." Adapt no one build is un killable, there is always kryptonite to your superman.

Iíve seen thread like p2w QQ lol, my first night back, I got hit with all these new console abilities. Did it really matter much no, lol past pvp experience kick in and it felt like the old VM /SNB days all over again. This keeps you on are toes this is what make 3 hr pvp zombie cruiser premades end with a winner it is the randomness of STO. Sto is balance like this there is no op build but there sure are allot of really strong ones/ unique builds. WHICH allot were taken away with the sci nerf I see. This led to a huge staleness in sto and I wish they fix this one thing because sci as a option is just sad now.
