New Tech and maps are coming!!!!
Ask Cryptic 08.2012
Quote:
Dstahl: [Over] the last year, [=2011, Havam] the studio has [...] dedicated internal development resources to analyzing and building a fun PvP prototype. This has helped us learn and understand the tech necessary to make PvP a healthy part of our games.

That effort was largely successful internally and helped identify how we should proceed with PvP in the future. Earlier this year, STO jumped at the opportunity to be the first Live Cryptic game to use this new tech and started work on revamping a space PvP map that could serve as a test bed for players to provide feedback. That test map was nearly finished when ?Gozer? left the team. It has since passed to another designer on the team and he is coming up to speed on everything that had been developed over the past several months.

[...] The first step is going to be putting a test map out for players sometime in the next few months [08.2012] and then seeing where we go from there. Only after we believe the existing PvP community confirms our opinion that this is an improvement to PvP, will we consider putting serious development effort towards a releasable map set.

Thus, the writing on the wall is that PvP will continue as is for the duration of Season 6 and will slowly begin to improve in Seasons 7 through 9, [counting LoR we are at S9] with the end goal of having an awesome and fun PvP ?battleground? like map by the time Season 9 ships.
so far so good, new tech in testing, new czar is on it. By the time Season 9 ships (aka Season 8) all will be done.

Good news new rep!

[TTS] <Dev> Oaks@dstahl: PvP is probably going to be the next Reputatoin we do
[TTS] <Dev> Oaks@dstahl: pvp reputation is definitely in the cards for 2013 - probably the next one we'll do
Great PvP rep, more grind, but fun grind. Also as for universal consoles and factional specifics lets not forget Gozer

I see lots of threads about KDF players having access to gear that FED players do not. This isnít going to be a problem in the new system since their will not be any FED vs KDF PVP. All PVP in the new system will be cross faction queues.
Well he's no longer there, but look this guy is

<Dev> dMorn@dstahl: re: PVP - we have a dedicated specialist revamping PVP to allow cross faction matches and any level bolstering. We are starting with a space arena revamp and going from there - post S6
while we're at it look what the cat brought back

<Dev> dMorn@dstahl: re: PVP leaderboards - these are planned for the PVP update
Great new rep, and leaderboards, SNix would be proud. wait what????

Dstahl: It has been in our design all along that Starbases will eventually see PvP, and not just Deathmatch PvP. Season 6 is launching with Starbase PvE Challenges. Starbase PvP Challenges is a feature for a future Season. [07/2012, havam]
[...]
Dstahl: [...]we have an amazing array of new content designers, such as Mr. Dods (Alpha, Starbase Incursion, Starbase Alert) who will be continuing the work on PvP as we move closer to the redesign of the system. We expect the updates to PvP to happen on our Test Server first and will not be going Holodeck until the PvP community has had ample time to provide feedback. We know that this will take some time, [...] We will continue to make great content, such as what you are seeing in Season 6.
yeah so devs, what happend?? Time for a smoke check out stowiki for more fun PvP vaporware>>here<<

[TTS] <Dev> Oaks@dstahl: PvP needs gear, better maps, and two full factions - it isn't fixable overnight
you guys are really pushing it, awesome job, and thanks for all the improvements that have materialized already.

Cryptic Math...

Can't count LoR as a Season.

It was an Expansion.

So PvPers have to wait until Season 9, in 2014.

Yeah. That's it.

And ofcourse season 9 will include another new faction with 4% CritH/10% Severity doffs exlusively for that faction with full cloak ships and 5 uni boff ship layouts, and another season has been on hold ;P

Nice new tactic pw3 to skip another decade of pee vee pee ;P

Yeah, I no longer look at updates for PVP as being something that they are willing to release while they have to release more PVE content first.

Its like the Federation Vs the Klingons..
You think that your beta test was bad?

Yeah i heared he even killed people in a sci ship. Not a healing wells, but an actuall cc bild using sci/sci..... must have been something.

I m convinced that his disappearance had something to do with non-release of the vault shuttle pvp map. He seemed to like the idea.
