I opened a ticket about this today, but I now figure it would probably be quicker to get a reply here in the forums. I have a few questions.

1. Does Cryptic consider people who AFKer and or feed in Public PvP queues to be griefers?

2. If yes, can we expect any action to be taken against those who grief public PvP queues up to and including bans?

3. If not, why not?

4. Also unrelated, can we have a stickied thread which lists dev acknowledged bugs that can be exploited? So, we can refer people to said thread and report them should they continue to exploit. Tbr was latest example of this, but there's also lesser issues like the Vet Console shield vamp being effected by Aux2batt when it shouldn't be.

Edit: In the mean time if I choose to report all those who AFK or feed will I be accused of spamming Cryptic?

Post it in the PvE forums, it'll be processed normally.
"No, there is no real problem with P2W in STO. Obviously, if you fight against someone with an equal level of skill in the game, better equipment will give you an edge. But usually, it is the skill level that determines the outcome, not the P2W." -Logimo

One would think so, but I posted a thread about the Vamp console bug coming back and got zero replies.

Considering it's helping killing off PvP, they probably consider the greifers to be their champions.

Yes I know that's rather an unfair thing to say, but it's been almost three years guys. Three years.

Please, just throw us a bone, even a bone that's been pre-chewed by an eppoh.

I've actually personally reported two people who griefed in Pvp (one called Kodim who would AFK in every match and Attack0 who had to fly his damned shuttle). To a certain extent it's a good thing they don't ban based on players reporting them, given how many of us have been reported for cheating (read: player can't believe someone is that good).

I would recommend that you edit out those two names. Calling out people on the forums, even worthless griefers, isn't really allowed.

Given reports of another old bug coming back, can we get the stickied thread I mentioned in point 4 so people can at least attempt to self police until we here what Crpytic's official stance on what the player options are for exploiters and griefers?

Edit: Also I'd like this thread to stay around, so no name and shame plz.

I'm rather stumped as to why they haven't simply removed dilithium rewards from PvP all together. They took it from STFs so it's not like the idea hasn't crossed their minds. What are they up to...

The best you can do is ask your team to all report the player with you.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

I disagree, the best I can do is ask for the Dev's to comment and or take action based on my OP.

Well theres that too, I thought it was implied by the thread itself.
