# 1 PVP Tournament without the BS
03-20-2013, 12:54 PM
Please can the participants read this

For your information, Regulus & Sargon will be here to help in any way or take over if life throws those unexpected curve balls at me! - Thanks as always guys, much appreciated.

This is nothing to do with Pandas - I repeat nothing to do with Pandas

Based on what i've seen on the PVP forum so far, Mini's survey, Novalus' suggestions, CSI 's & TFS's lead, and also trying not to fall into the same pitfalls sadly the mentioned fleets / people fell into, I want to host a Space PVP tournament for all in and out of the PVP community.

I am going to keep the rules simple.

01. Have fun - Most important
02. No siphon drones and danubes (Not fun and skillfull)
03. No more than 3 of the same captains or ship types
04. No Boarding Parties (Broken)
05. No Dkora EMP burst (Broken)
06. No scramble sensors with the DOFFs (Without DOFFs no issue)
07. No Grav Pulse (AOE 50 second hold not fun)
08. Once you are in 1 team an have played, you cannot move to another
09. Temporal Inversion not allowed
10. Tachyon Mines


Reward: Knowing you are the victor and vast amounts of fun.

All I'm gonna ask for is put your team down
Rules may and will change based on the latest screw up by STO :0
There is not going to be a debate of any description
All I will say is I will be extremely fair

Please Put down your name / Fleet / Team in this thread and nothing else.

If you dont like the rules, please don't derail the thread and you dont need to participate if you dont like the rules.

Thanks in advance and remember, we are here to have fun. Forget the bad blood of the past and aim for the fun PVP bit which we are all looking for.


Time & location finalised:

The tournament will be held on 6th April 2013 - Time 9pm GMT

The Teamspeak Server will be the Boot camp server (Thanks goes out to Pheo - Again)
Address: pvpbootcamp.com:1406
No Password

A big thank you goes to CSI fleet for combining their previous efforts into this tournament. Thank you.

If it was "just for fun" why does it need any restrictions?

Soooo 3 Eng/Oddy 2 Sci/Recluse Extend circlejerk? Yay!

Fully rainbow turret-ed out, of course.
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?

Because use of the restricted abilities makes it not fun for the opposing team.

If i am in it for fun, i dont care what you use... if theres really no goal then i dont have a vested interest in restricted anything.

If this is for fun, there wouldn't be any rules. People just want to win, and not PvP for fun. I.E., these rules. Boarding party is not broken, for your information.

You would say that when you got hit with a 30s gravity pulse... and clear it... and get hit with a 40s Gravity Pulse... and have a team mate clear it... and get hit with another 30s Gravity pulse ?

I think not.

Restricting the anti fun is logical.

Are you really saying you would like to use anything on Nazs list ?

Why even bother with any restrictions whatsoever? If everyone wants to ride carriers, let them ride carriers; they want oddys, they'll use oddys; etc. Seriously, you're just in it for winning period and while my brain tries to rack-up a decent response, I'll let the late George Carlin say it for me.

2. No siphons drones and danubes (Not fun and skillfull)

Never faced them, dont know how bad it can be, but im having fun with my friends so have no opinion.

3. No more than 3 of the same captains or ships

I enjoy my fleet defiant, my bug ship, my dreadnaught carrier and several other ships so this doesnt phase me that much. Any of my ships will perform well.


4. No Boarding Parties (Broken)

Dont think this is actually broken and can be easily removed with tac teams.


5. No Dkora EMP burst (Broken)

Ive never seen this do anything other than look pretty... meh


6. No scramble sensors with the DOFFs (Without DOFFs no issue)

no opinion


7. No Grav Pulse (AOE 50 second hold not fun)

grav pulse, referring to gravity well? I can counter this, in about 3 different ways.

Grav pulse is similarly countered, in multiple ways.


8. Once you are in 1 team, you cannot move to another

This i understand.


Also, if your trying to remove annoyances, or OP stuff... I see nothing about no plasma builds, or romulan builds, or clusters, transphasics or any of the other OP annoying crap that can pop up.
