So here's a screenshot of PVP from the first month STO was out in my fleet escort.

You don't have to assume if you truly understand the mechanics of the game, and the way it stands there are many jarring abilities that are absurdly OP and it would be suicide in PVP to do without.
Not to diminish your acomplishments and skill as pvper. But what does this screenshot prove ? That half of the enemy team were noobs ?

And exactly that is the problem. Not only is your ship op you are also a good player who knows how to use it.
To win a fight you need to be more skilled than your opponent or have better equipment (of course there are always things like luck, lag etc). Now if you take a good player and give him the best stuff who is going to defeat him?

A horde of crying, rampaging Pandas perhaps? Had some fun blowing up Inquisitors earlier today, even though I got called an exploiter because I accidentally had Repulsors on my escort from running PvE. :/

What's impressive in Aytanhi's case is that he actually doesn't have the expensive [acc]x3 weapons, attack pattern doffs, etc, and still manages to be one of the very, very best pvp'ers in the game. The OP bug ship does help though.

As to the thread's actual topic: I would generally agree with the sentiment of PvP being 'hard mode' in that the depth of knowledge required to operate in PvP is a complete superset of that needed for PvE, with what works in one generally working in the other. What I'd like to see is more PvE content that requires the PvP skillset (the no-win scenario is an excellent example) and has rewards commensurate with 'hard mode' play.

.
i dont recall anyone saying you were exploiting that, just that it was a bit off poor judgment to use something to shove us against a wall and then have your way with us


did learn an interesting bug from that though, apparently if youre dead and pushed outside the boundrys it can bug you out making you unable to heal your teammates and be able to attack them.
.


ALSO! when did the camera become so horrible when at the ceiling? i dont remember it being that bad but my god... it was horrible, also felt like we all kept getting stuck.
