# 1 pvp weekly update 8-15-2012
08-15-2012, 10:32 AM
hye doodz and doodettez!

SO! we had big news in the last Ask Cryptic.

pvp wont be really "focused on" until season 9! thats right! we all have to wait another year. nice....

Brace yourselves, another new cruiser is coming....

plasma leach seems to have been fixed to acceptable levels (by the devs, the community still thinks its too powerful), HOWEVER! every other power drain in the game needs to be looked at, and shield drains and power drains NEED to be seperated on the skill tree.

dispite all the asking in the ask cryptic, it seems that we might get a map testing "new technologies" before season 9 but no mention if we'll ever get fleet marks for pvp.

going over the klingon fleet ships, it appears they've been given a good shafting so theyre not really worth it.

i dont understand why ALL the federation major escorts have 5 tactical consoles, wheres the difference?

rumor has it phaser procs are/still broken. even though theres supposed to be an immunity after a proc ends you can indefinataly be chained while proc'd.

Anything else?

- ground stealth is being fixed.
-PVP is being excluded from the bonus rewards for fleet mark week. since there is no pvp that rewards marks.... -cries-

not much happened this week, people trying to tric mine each other to death mostly. the trek con was last week so that proboly had a lot to do with the lack of anything happening.

someone at cryptic just needs to take a week and hook up some new pvp maps. the space map for alpha for cap and hold, the prison facility for ground, there was a couple of others i thought of but cant remember. those foundry guys that hook up maps, have them do it. you have got to give pvp something before another year passes.

leach is still op as hell, i dueled some one with it and got my ass kicked hard, then he took it off and it actually became a close match.

the fleet ktinga, fleet vorcha and fleet nasican escort have all proven to be formidable ships, and all costing $20 each. all these 5 tac console fed escorts are some bull**** though. nothing should have 5 tac consoles.

ya the phaser proc fix has a loop hole. you can receive an unlimited amount of procs before the first proc ends, so when you need the protection most, it lets you down. now you get the proc from blue beams too, and at a frightful pace

So? business as usual. I.E. Cryptic developer says that PVP won?t really be worked on until Star-bases are done. We have Star Bases in game now? and what of PVP? oh? maybe Season 9ish.

I?ll anticipate PVP being done just as much as I anticipated a fully-fledged out Klingon Faction. In other words, Cryptic will say whatever they feel like saying to keep our attention but really, they will do nothing but collect a paycheck.

Honestly, with how quickly Star Trek Online was developed, I can?t for the life of me understand why they seemingly lack any ability to seriously add any more content to the game? anyone ever wonder about that as well?

The gain of Plas Leech has always been OP, but it's like beating a dead horse after pointing it out for over 1/2 a year now. Other power gains are out of line as well.
Yet, personally I'll keep using it along with tet glider until KDF get decent Fleet options for BoP/Escorts and shield repairs via doffs/borg 3 part et al get looked at and reduced.

A raider/escort should be built to survive w/team heals or retreat. It shouldn't be capable of withstanding anything other than a 1v1 dogfight and even then it should win by applying the most damage while evading incoming damage. It shouldn't win via out repairing the otherside's full on alpha.

In addition to the lack of quality of options for fleet ships, there's no T5 KDF ships being improved which means the price is always full for KDF. Further w/o fleet currency rewards in PvP they're forcing yet another PvE grind on PvPers. Imo, these are further choices by Cryptic mgt to justify nuking KDF development as a faction and PvP as a playstyle choice for financial reasons.

It's terrible but easy, and these Borg are way cooler than the mess STO and Voyager left us.
May not actually be "way" cooler or even "slightly" cooler.
