To be honest, I can set up my main in a tank that no ones going to beat 1v1 using current game rules. But limit my tanks shields to say a MK8, & limit a tacs weapons to say MK X . Limit classes of toons to certain classes of ships. remove all the P2W . It would be very difficult to do. But if Soph is serious I bet he could figure out a way to make a 1v1 tourney do-able. It would take a lot of work though.
& i cant see a 1v1 cruiser battle ever being winnable. unless one of them is a n00b.I've been gone for a couple of seasons though & could be wrong. I'm coming back to do my pewing using hilberts classic PVP rules. Back to fighting using season 2 ships & equipment. S2 was the best season for balance, & 1v1's using these rules would be far better than they are today. here's what I'm talking about. http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=533671 Read the link I posted in the first post. I believe using these rules as a base would help make a balanced 1v1 more possible. I still think It's an incredibly difficult task to pull off.

You're not kidding with that one.

I've done that once or twice for kicks with 2 beam-cruisers vs. each other, and it's a snoozefest to end all snoozefests.

I Remember Soph as the Don Quixote of the forums, always tilting at windmills about different aspects of the game in opposition to pretty much all of the PVP community, It's nice to see that some things will never change.
I Think if he really wants this kinda thing to happen, it's going to be up to him to figure out rules to make it work. The devs are not going to fundamentally transform STO to make this happen, & I'm pretty sure he has to know that.

Yes, you ignored the part where I put the burden on you to prove that flaws within STO lie in the balancing for 5v5 and not some other area, such as defense as an avoidance stat like uncle Thissler keeps muttering about after he nods off in his recliner whiskey coma.

No - he actually now believes EPTS is OP and game breaking - Remember the time when Soph thought it was useless in the biggest ever disguised troll thread "Lets talk about my useless hunk of pet holder...."

He's the Trollmeister for sure. I mean, there is no way he's serious with all this.

No, but most of the writers where, ergo the characters on the shows where as well.

So in summary 99.99% agree that balancing on 1 v 1 matches is not balancing at all.

Is that correct guys and gals?
