In last months (11) of constant degradation of PvP I started to wonder - would it be really that hard to make separate PvP game out of STO? You have everything ready, just set up server for it and start it.

My idea is to take current STO, scrap all the P2W things that were introduced - lockbox ships, equipment sets, C-Store items, DOFFs - everything. Keep just the plain, base game. Make it subscription based and here you are. Relatively good space PvP game that is founding itself.

You could use the income from subscriptions to make additions and rebalance/fix things without any sort of influence on main game income. And if those fixes would be working there should be no problem of implementing them on main STO game (assuming you made the programing in half decent way).

I think a lot of those players that migrated to MWO and other games would've returned in such case - and payed you real money. Steady income from a game created with minimal investment, free platform for fixes (players pay with subs for them) and testing mechanics for main game. Think about it.

Ok, I know I'm dreaming, but it would be soooooooo coooooool to have such game for PvP.

This would involve work. And more importantly this would involve work that would directly improve PvP, and that's just not going to happen.

Pre-s4 (if not earlier) base FTW less the smelly shield glitch and voldemort. No lock box/c-store ships either. Just the base T5 refits. No Aegis/Borg. Would be awesome but won't happen. The skill tree is somewhat okay verse having to spec a certain ship/weapon type.

Unless all it involves is a few flicking of switches, nothing PvP related will be done.

Not that new. I'm not from beta times, but I remember when sci was ruling the battlefield, and escorts were for best players who were not afraid of dying after enemy players looked in their direction.

But for me fun from PvP started to vanish a year or so ago.

Don't like robots. Actually not great fan of PvP either. Only STO PvP. Hell, I don't like MMOs that much. Just like Star Trek

Wanna my "fire all phasers" fix without loosing sanity in the proces (and current STO id doing just that).

The concept of a stripped down version of STO for pvp only on a seperate server is a nice idea but that would involve DStahl actually caring about the pvp community when it consists of only .02% of the game (those were his words by the way).

But there is Hope for PVP.......its called Mech Warrior Online......want good pvp go there its worth the move
Galron Says PEW PEW!!!!!!!!
