I for one believe that this may revolutionize game play. Tear the control of Player versus player from the establishment of exploiters and neckbeards. Huzzah.

Things like this pop up, which ask to divide what is left of the community. Those that are used to OPvP are probably going to stay there. And what makes matters worse is it seems like this might be a more exclusive "Ruled" PvP channel.

Meaning that if somebody Pew Pews the wrong person, even if fair, they might end up banned from the Channel. That or without any form of chatter, the channel will be like Public Elite STF... Very much against conversation and very pro acronyms...

Sorry but PvP is about more then just one fleet going after another, especially when the thread is put together to complain about an already existing competetor. Maybe one day we can have an OPvP vs this Channel thing... Im in for that.
From my observations and the background of the owners of the channel and the guys behind it its simply running away from the current state of the game. (I suppose the rules of the latest tournament that never got lift off the ground can be associated with the main idea behind this new channel)

We dont have to accept all the stuff thats going on in the game, some aspects of this game are truly OP on a per console/ship/doff comparison basis versus price, but ignoring well known and old skool tactics, scramble still called OP, disruptors that have been in the state they are in since Season 4 (Aka proc buffed by raw dmg buffs) all that stuff is just pure subjective and are being despised by a specific group.


I don't like Opvp all the time because of all the bs going on there, but I think its still better to have a neutral ground like Opvp where ppl fight each other like chickens but not choose a side and try splitting up the Community because a bunch of friends/groups believe certain stuff is OP and they do not like to fight against those 'things'.

Stick with your fleet and arrange some interfleets, leave the community out of your personal opinions.

I'd say man up and pew, where there is a will there is a way.

wait wut?


how does a single channel (opvp) have control of player versus player?

i also remember a time that opvp was run mostly by TSI members, and it was thought that was fleet biased and crap. but we always had a "hands off" on the channel. i remember a few times i had to tell other members that "no we will not censor people, no we will not change the way the channel is".

seems like its all working as intended. a community of people that like to bs and sometimes do pvp together.

id imagine that pvp in this game would be even worse if there wasn't opvp in the game.

im surprised cryptic never made any "offical" chat channels in the game.

i mean seriously, how hard would that have been on their part?

they even had promised a "life timers only" chat channel that never happened and eventually was removed from their "coming soon" on the lifer rewards.

ah well...


i think ill go drink some nice 'merican kool-aid

I will not join any other new pvp chat channel, however I appreciate the additional possibility of setting up matches, so I will check things out when it starts.

Visit the Inner Circle YouTube Channel to watch some pew pew PVP action!

16 members last I saw. Not a good start. Advertise please, 100+ in a few days is very attainable. Focus on 'newer' PvPers to start, teh pros will follow.

If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting. ~thlaylierah
So realistically, you only need to have the exact number of doffs that you need. ~leadme2kirk

Keep in mind 1 more day until the PPC Event starts. The more come the more fun we will have.
Also feel free to add yourself to the PPC Channel.

Lillte secret for some who might not know you can have more than 1 channel. So you can have both OPvP and PPC.
