# 1 Cryptic, fix the queues!!!!

Cryptic, fix the PvP queues and quit killing PvP without making a declaration!

There is no reason why 20-40 people should constantly be sitting in the queues for 20+ minutes without a game popup!!! And even if the popup does occur, most often it is canceled because people have been waiting so long, they went on to do other things and don't want to do the PvP any longer.

And when did 16 players become necessary when it used to be 8 for cap and hold... huh?

fix it!

i was sick of this crap an hour into LoR. are you throttling down pvp so the servers only have to run 1 or 2 matches at once?

I have felt your pain but in STFs in the past of all things which is almost kinda funny lol but yep I don't see why this is happening unless they are trying to alleviate server stress ?

I posted a bug report about this very issue on 07-27-2013, at 12:50 PM LINK But since its related to pvp it fell to page 7 and got lost, i bumped it up again, and submitted another bug report (in-game bug report) but i doubt anything will happen as its pvp related

Actually, if you notice the queue window says "participants" now, so when you see 20-40 participants you're seeing active matches in addition to those who are queued. It's an annoying change regardless and I don't really see the point of it. It would be nice to get a reason for not having a separate window for in progress matches anymore.

I'm not sure that this is true .
STO will be out of Beta in another 2-4 years ???
... you know after another 3 story arc remasters, crafting revamp, skills revamp, PVP upgrade ...
*note : the 2-4 year guesstimate came out of comparing Cryptic's Dev speed and that of a snail . Sadly the snail won .

I second this. Fix it Cryptic. Since start of LoR I had like one C&H started and that's it.

When I see things like this I'm starting to believe into all the "Cryptic wants to get rid of PvP" conspiracy talks.

no new pvp maps in 3.5 years.. pvp always takes a backseat to pve... AND, it is next on the list (coming in 4th) for the last poll that Dan Stahl had last year... that means PvP is next on the list!!!!

what kind of game doesn't have a strong sense of PvP?... even atari had player versus player back in 1976 with it's first console.

Come on, Cryptic!!! DO SOMETHING! Quit strangling PvP!!! You always have since day 1!!!!

Here's a great picture of the queues! Why are 50 waiting?

Take a look. They just refuse to give an answer, or to change it again.
This is Crypticverse...
