I am commander . Recently I fought in Arena (yay, queue poped up!), an FvF. In the first match, there was I (Fed in Akira), and 7 Romulans. Serving as a bait in an escort is not really funny thing to do.
In the second one, there was me and another Fed with 2 Valodres and the other side was 3 Romulans with 1 Fed.
I had also the bad feeling, that with the warp cores and other stuf native to Romulans the relative balance of low level PvP was thrown out of airlock.
After those two I wonder... what's the point? I was fighting FvF when I got enough of flying around in Ker'rat in vain hope of finding some Klink and getting fight. Or cursing when half dead one was running away and cloaking and I had my Evasives on CD. Now there is no reall difference. FvF, FvK...
Why bother with those anyway if there is no difference? Actually - why bother with PvP if there is really no choice as of who you fight (Rom, Klink - it's the same)?
Do not misunderstand me. I love FvK on low levels. I join queues, roam in Ker'rat. But when I join FvF it is to fight another Fed, not Romulans. I was doing it to have nice, clean fight without hiders. Just some hull smashing.
Now it's all fracked up. Cryptic messed it up a bit to much for my taste. I probably just roll a Romie to check new storyline. And then check Witcher I bought year ago and never played.
Thanks Cryptic. You are really good when it comes to screwing up with PvP experience for me.
give all Fed Ships Cloak too and problem is over ...
or take out PVP of the Game because no one plays it because its not good made and other Games do it better
First there was just FvK, but complaint by some followed and we got FvF and FvK and the other ques so those whom did not want to fight "unfairness" could PvP without it.
Following the same pattern of thoughtless ideas will not fix anything.
The need for FvF was vehemntly fought debated and near demanded by the player base becuase of KDF unfairness in FvK pvp. Over the years the lines between fed and KDF gameplay has become vanilla due to a similiar set of circumstances. They near play the same, cheese and all, especially now with LoR released.
