Q: Linkdown Will we get any PVP love.

A: Yes. We plan some PVP love during Season 4, and more specifically Open PVP areas if we can get the tech and rewards ironed out.

By love, they meant more p2w stuff and lockbox ships.

Wrong. June 2011. 2011. When F2P was not even a mere thought. P2W stuff wasn't even in yet. Lockboxes in STO? What are you talking about?

Exactly that, the lockboxes that cost a buck twenty five to open.

I think there's an important qualifier in that statement. See here for details.

I don't care how long you've been playing. I only care about how you play.
And remember to follow the rules.

It's called humor. Get some.

I know what time frame he was referring to since I was playing at that time.

And besides, that is the path they went to in the end.

That is all PvP has received from them and will likely receive for a long time.

Cryptic hates PVP more than the Klingon Empire. The amount of development each received should say enough. Too bad I like both...

Come on guys...it was a simple typo. Let's not bust their balls about it.

Of course, those qualifiers always apply.

But, seriously, go through and look up every single Dev post that mentions PvP. It's always "Seriously, we swear, PvP stuff is coming VERY soon!" or "It'll be here in this/next Season!"

The string us along with false hopes. They either set wayyy too high of goals for themselves (I guess even getting out more than 2 FEs is a challenge?) or are blatantly just lying ("exaggerating", if you will) that they plan on doing things.

Sure, you can say that Heretic (or Gecko, or whomever it was) was doing something for PvP, but we don't know what that was. And even still - let me know how long it takes to add a few spawn points onto already existing maps, and then guess as to why we don't have them yet.

My favorite was the "... in testing, and to be released soon!", in July of 2010. Still waiting on that one.
