I know it sound Strange but I meet a player in the Queues Last Night who I know is predominantly a PvE player.

He was in fact one of the DJ's from subspace Radio and I asked "What are you doing in PvP" when I seen him. He answered for the Dil he was doing his PvP arena dailies to get all he could before season 7 and this was his 1st time pvping since near Launch.

So with a reduction in the rewards from STF's do you think PvP will...

1 Stay the same and continue to its Demise

2 See an influx of players as more people do their PvP daily's

3 Zombie Apocalypse lots of players AFK'ing and completing their Dailies for Free.

What do you think ?

This!

And yes, matches will last days - as neither side budges to do anything so the match ends.

Sure PvP will become more valuable as a source of Dili. This will lead to:

1. More players coming just for the dili.
2. Some of these new players will be wiped a few times, and then become regular AFKers.
3. Some will face similarly inexperienced players, and will have a blast of a n00b fight, allowing the monster of PvP addiction to sink it's claws into them!
4. = Profit!

(That said, I believe s7 will also introduse some other ways of making Dili, so maybe PvP Dili will not increase in value after all...)

What I fear is not AFKers... I fear players who will try to finish the match as soon as possible... T1 ships and no shields... charging full speed towards the enemy...

we will fight such foul play with griefing. simply warp out on afkers so they waste an hour and get nothing. we need to fight back, if someone is so low brow they t1 no shields in pvp, hope they had fun that one time, as theyll be ostracized mass ignored and warped on.

I'm hoping for number 4, and that new players learn to enjoy PvP as I and others have in STO.

Maybe it'll even bring those balance changes we've been waiting for.....
