Ahhh!
It is finally Starting! The Slow Rise of PvP!

America!

Geko said in the interview they removed the dilithium requirements with the rep system leveling.. They are planning to release it soon I believe.

With Cryptic's history.....I'll believe when it's actually in game,till then it's nothing more than smoke up our behinds.

So are leaderboards and tournament queues.

Since June of 2010.
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

sounds like pvp rep is next, with defera, cardasian and tholian later. tholian? you don't really interact with them, you shoot them. reputation as a menis to them?

i am glad to hear about the other reputation missions arent going to charge dil, that dil nickle and dimming that we were facing with that was bad.


the new passives for the current rep are a scary thing for pvp, i don't want to know what they will come up with for focus on pvp.

But can't you picture the following down the line?

The group of five that has T5'd their reps with 5-6 groups - where they're flying a Drek'Hi, a Warbarge, a Balaur, and two Ravagers...

...and seeing the guy show up in his brand new Sovereign ready to rock and roll.

Can you imagine the forum posts?

He said that the Reputation system is where they COULD put a PVP reputation, same with Tholians, or others.. Not that they WOULD..

You think that your beta test was bad?

The word "developing" feels a bit misleading considering what he actually said was, "Would it help at all if I mentioned that we've been kicking concepts for a possible PvP Reputation track?" So sure, 'kicking concepts' could be considered an early step in the development process but I wouldn't get too excited.

If there is anything history has taught us about Cryptic and PvP, it's that you can't expect... anything. All they said is that they could do a PvP Rep system and they might, but there are too many other things they said they will do and haven't.
