would love to jump into some low tier pvp. maybe disable earned abilities in-game and only allow properly ranked weapons on your current ship to be able to join up for low tier pvp? would make old zen ships more useful and sure as hell couldn't hurt.

No way. Not enough money to make by letting players play low level PvP without all the reputation, P2W stuff and everything else. Forget it or roll new toon.

But then I would love it too. Low level PvP is the best. No OP stuff, you need to know your ship and the power as you can take only few. Things are possible that would not be possible at lvl50 (like boarding party, beam escorts etc).

Sigh. I love low level PvP.

Low tier PVP is great fun. Sadly it's a rarity.

wow, everyone SAYS they like it, but I have recent experience with levelling toons and trying to find PvP at levels below 50 says otherwise-flat fact, all the whining aside, people WANT that broken **** in their games-they just don't want the other fellow to have it.

Some of them - yes. Some - maybe. Some may not know, some are already using it (saw a cmdr escort with theta console).

I can, with hand on my hearth say, that I do not. Not worth the money and time - I was never grinder, I never set a a foot in the reputation system and fleets. I just like the pre-F2P PvP too much. Put me at disadvantage to the others who were using fleet stuff first, reps later. The further into F2P the bigger the gap. That's why I stayed out of end lvl PvP. And I intend to do so.

I love flying my Galaxy as a captain and blow the **** out of Klinks and other Feds, or simply keep other people alive with it as a healer. It's great experience without all the broken stuff, overhealing or overdamage from escorts. Unless Cryptic does something about the skills, heals and damages I doubt I will visit endgame PvP for anything more then some C&H run or a round around Ker'rat.

I wonder what will happen, when LoR hits and (I hope) current endgame PvP start reroll their toons and (I hope) visit low level queues. I do wonder how those players, used to lockbox ships, tons of consoles, even more reputation stuff and lot of BOFF/DOFF powers/combinations will find themselve in reality where all they have are 4-5 BOFF powers, no consoles, no magical shields to save their arses. I assume they will buy DOFFs for new ships like crazy to offset some of the "disabilities" they got with low level ships.

I suppose it will be fun. I mean... no SNB! Gods, no SNB! And the Alpha Strike, where is my APO.. of, no slot for it... and APA... of, only APA2... AAAAAAAA

so you want pre-item matches with your zen ship, is that right

the devs arent going to do any work on anything that cuts off the item grab, thats how they make their money

if you want to do, you'll have to roll a noob yourself.

wouldn't believe how much EC was spent perfecting only to click the promote button anyway.

scavenging the ch'tang for it's console was possibly the hardest thing i'll ever have to do in this life.
