hmm... destroying carriers is one of my favourite pasttime. Just takes a cloaked ship and a serious alphastrike. Most of them are to busy hearding their pets to notice the treath I represent before it's too late.

(I'm sure a carrier piloted by a serious player can be almost impossible to kill, but 9 out of 10 carriers fold like a house of cards)

I hope the reworked reward system will implement some serious PVP gear. If it is only to get more credits than the other one in the team, then you can keep it.

Without a token system (like it allready existed) and high end gear for it, what good are the statistics anyway.
In other words...i had 15 killing blows in a single game, can i get more than a picture?

But it definitely is a step forward, and GZ to that!

Hope to see it soon on tribble.

Question… what good are these weekly PVP updates if Gozer is not going to participate in discussion with us here on the PVP sub-forum?

I mean, it is great and all that he is sort of keeping us in the loop with regard to what is going on or what is not going on… however, how the hell does that help the community or even the Cryptic Team understand what the community really wants or expects out of the PVP overhaul verses what Cryptic Studios is able to do realistically?

How is he going to address our concerns, aspirations, question et-all when he isn’t to be found in dialog with us here on the PVP sub-forums?

IDK… I’m just one more disgruntled customer and maybe am out of line in my thinking. Guys… am I wrong here?

Just a quick note...

I'm not sure what you expect here. I've seen a couple of posts like this over the last couple of weeks. I read every post on these weekly threads. I don't have time to reply to every post on the thread.

For the next few weeks / months I won't be talking about specifics with PvP. It's too early in the process to talk about specific features. When we get to that point I'll be more active in the conversations, but we are not even close to being there yet.

If you want me to stop doing weekly updates just let me know. You guys have two choices here.

A. I can continue to post a weekly thread even if there isn't much to really talk about. (What I've been doing the last few weeks)

Or

B. I can wait until i have several things to discuss and I need feedback from the community. ( This is what I did with STF's and I was much more active in those larger threads.)


The choice is up to you guys... I can do it either way, so let me know. There is however no Option C, D, E, etc. A and B are your two options. I don't have time for anything else since I have to actually spend the majority of my time actually creating the new features not talking about them.

Anyone with half a brain would take option A, with a caveat. The problem with option A is that if you give any detailed information and end up cancelling it, it will come back and bite you in the ***. This always happens, regardless of the company. Cryptic's promises of open beta and scoreboards long ago that weren't delivered really ****ed the community off.

Gozer, I commend your refreshing frankness. I would much rather take Option B because that is a better way for all of us to spend our precious time. If people have enough time to complain, they aint busy enough and should be busier than what they are.

I don't know...
I find content-less Dev posts irritating. But on the other hand seeing at least some positive PvP related activity by the Devs is good for the PvPer Soul. And at least the initial post spurned some interesting discussions by the community.

Maybe you should put in some "leading questions" in each weekly. Even if you don't really need the answers yet. (Half of us will assume that anyway. And the other half will assume that half the time .)

I am more than happy to see weekly updates until stuff is nailed down. i look forward to reading the updates even if if they dont always have much info for that week in general. i know you will become more communicative as the system takes shape.

Option A all the way. I'll take knowing what's going on over just sitting and hoping for news any day.

Thanks for taking the time to do the updates; they are appreciated.
