Well, it might not be dead, but it is certainly on life support right now. Only those of us who keep getting strung along by promises of improvement (which I seriously doubt will happen soon) are keeping it barely alive.
PvP is like guy with now untreatable cancer. Unless new treatment will be applied that can help it - he (PvP) will die. And as Cryptic is not investing much into such treatment (if anything at all) then the outcome is known.
I do PvP, but mostly because there is no other MMO ST-based game or even good space MMO with good space combat. Had someone made Starfleet Command MMO with PvP I would've gone away from STO in a minute and never looked back.
In denial much? Your statements are littered with it like pollution.
LOL! i suppose im actually not having any fun, even though im having fun enough of the time to keep me coming back. what would improve my fun is more people being at a higher skill level. there is absolutely nothing untrue about that last statement, if you ONLY get rolled, the problem is you.
