Since I see no bashing coming from Hilbert (mancom) or myself, I can only read your response as someone taking a very defensive posture on the subject. Which, is.... interesting.

I just made a suggestion for a real team play tourney. Something a lot of people have asked for in the past and it's never came to fruition. And to see this event being planned, makes me wonder if they have the time to do such things... Why not just throw together a 3v3 or 5v5 tournament? They provide us with a queue system which pits us 5v5....

And please, no one is ruining anyone's vision of what the game should be. Hilbert and I are both part of very casual fleets. You can find most of us running stfs and going for fleet marks or rep stuff most of the time. We pvp casually. Just.... Not often in shuttles, we see the game as being much bigger than that, and this is evident from the tools that cryptic gives us to play the game.

Have fun kill bad guys

I've been apart of the shuttle event once before. Kind of enjoyed it. But I can see where my other fellow PVPers are saying.

Perhaps this is still a bit of a disappointment of Cryptic pulling out their support of the PVP Tournament that was being worked on in the past. But it is still something that, in the future, I would like to see. And I can only assume that others who pvp would like to see, not just a PVP community Event. But an actual PVP Community Tournament Event.

It would especially be maybe a nice way to usher in the Romulans into the fold. Perhaps a month or two after LoR comes out to give players time to Level up their new characters.

Either way, don't hate us just because we're "PVPers". Especially when we are trying to do our best to PVP in a game environment that doesn't look like it will get the help it needs from the development staff for another year. (Making it 4 years since any true PVP content and updates have come to pass)

Anyway, I wish I could participate in the tournament, but real life stinks. And it is taking up most of my prioritized time for such things. Good luck with it Brandon. And have fun.
You think that your beta test was bad?

Sadly this falls into a bad time slot for me. I do want to say thank you to Bran for doing this!! If you ever do this on a weekend I can guarantee I will be there!

with my current schedule I might be able to make both time slots whee

Maybe sometime after the 21st when every faction has access to 1-50 ships we can see this expanded to a level 1-10 player ship event more pilot skill less dependence on boffs and consoles, overall I like the idea.

btw, Bran do you know if KDF is getting anymore low level starter ships (besides the 2-bops),
like maybe a lethean ship or the nausicaan npc destroyer escort (fingers crossed maybe all the npc ships as they look amazing after last tribble patch). Great work from all the texure artists with the new tribble stuff makes me not wanna go back on holodeck after seeing how even my characters looks like they have more detail when on tribble, truly amazing.

Edit: PVP wise at this point I would love some more ground arena/assault maps (like the New Romulus warehouse) be added in

Good Hunting

I think Cryptic getting "personally" involved in the PvP community as a "standard function" of tournaments hosted by them (Cryptic) would be a major (and I mean major) conflict of interest. What about the rest of the community? STF'ers, People who Mission or role play on Drozana. Would they get the same personal level of attention that the PvP'ers would get? Would there be contests on who is the best actor/roll player, who is the best STF'er?

Someone from Cryptic doing it on their own time, with their own personal account would be exempt of course and rightly so. Its their personal time. But using their Cryptic account for such things is where the conflict of interest arises.

I think this is off topic, but necessary.

If you want shuttle/ship 5v5, 3v3, 1v1, 10v10 etc, then the community should coordinate something outside of Cryptic's help or assistance. If not, then Cryptic should do the same for every group in the game. I am sure there are a lot of people that would like them to set up some kind of function for their game style play...

A PvP queue that auto adjusts for tournaments with auto-pairing would be super cool that has leaderboards, etc... I would like to see it but doubt it would happen given the awesome stuff already on their plate...

I am sure many are gonig to say I am missing the point. No, I get it... Fun, casual PvP event, that I myself might attend just because its there. Its still a great idea Brandon...

Brandon,

great idea and I think fleet, and other PVE events would be great to have on a regular basis keep up the great work

So as the GM, it might be high time to utilize the other 90% of the ships in the game for a proper PVP tourney?

You mean like the foundry contests that Cryptic run? Or how about the litracy contests that Cryptic runs? Oh and not to mention the random "Let's go to Quarks and RP" evenings.

Fact up first.
