# 1 God job Cryptic
05-07-2013, 02:34 AM
Almost all we see in the forums these days are people complaining - yes there is alot to complain about, but there is also things to be happy about and give credit for. I have played sto since beta and I can garantee that if it wasn't for a fun pvp experience in this game, me and pretty much all of my ingame friends would have stopped playing sto along time ago (and stopped paying).

So all in all I would like to congratulate Cryptic on a fun pvp experience and a good job. That beiing said - you still have alot that needs to be done to pvp, but I'm sure that if you guys focus on what makes the current (and past) pvp experience good and dedicate ressourses towards giving pvp some much needed love - I believe you guys will be able to silence the crying in the forums.

you must be new around here.

most of the bad feelings is from the YEARS of negelect and broken promises. Give it time, you'll be as bitter as the rest of us

enjoy pvp while you can.

I guess the PvP development could be described as following:

"who doesn't do anything does not break anything"

I agree, however people come to the forums to complain about something they don't like, if they are enjoying the game they don't really come here unless its to pick up new tips or to check on patch notes (why I am here).

But I +1 (no I don't use google social networking site thing, its just quick and easy to write it like that) the Good Job Cryptic statement, they have done a great job outside of PvP and STO PvP really is still awesome if you pair and fight a good team that dosen't use cheesy stuff.

Yes yes - laugh of me all you want, but if you are a veteran sto pvp'er you'l know what I'm talking about (give it some time it will come to you ). Yes the pvp has alot of flaws - broken mechanics/boffs and yes we have been neglected (mostly) from day one and none of the promises ever came trough (mostly).

If you are still not convinced. Ask yourself this question If sto didn't have pvp would you still be playing activly? if yes then good for you, if no - then you just realised my point.

So good job to cryptic for what they have done rigth with pvp, but a reminder that we are getting tired of broken stuff and empty promises.

I agree with the thread author because the PvP is a valid reason to continue playing this game when finishing all (or boring about) the PvE contents.
I love pugging at Ker'rat and in the PvP queues, this is the real Star Trek Universe...where Escorts and Bops vaporize anything and Fed Cruisers are silly sitting ducks...cough cough...
anyway the fun is great.
But the rage among the real pro PvPers is justified by the broken promises, no new queues maps, no ranking system, no gear gained through PvPing and above all a terrible game balance getting worse every time the Devs modify something.
We casual and average PvPers instead are very happy with the fun of the PvP experience but again I understand the pros...they are pros because they are searching the perfection and wanna win only with their skill!
