# 1 PVP FIX: Random PVP game mode
10-09-2013, 02:10 PM
To solve everything in regards to the community out cry against the pvp fleets/premades and their steam rolling... add a random game mode.

Add a pvp option that assigns players to a random game mode (space or ground) and a random team(you can not Q as a team). Tie the game mode to a daily mission and watch pvp interest grow and the community become a bit more at ease with the topic of pvp as it will become more tolerable to the casual players.

This fix requires hardly any work at all. It is economical and fair for all.

No one said you have to do it, but at least the option would be there. Also, it would be great to see people with speccs that have a balance for space and ground opposed to a player changing toons for every situation.

The random Q would mostly serve the casual crowd who is suffering the most right now. The casual players far out number the less than 1% of players who are pvp fanatics and are very capable of ruining the fun for the other 99% of players by choking the Q with their premades. A single premade can choke the Q for 3 hours on average. 8 premades(from different time zones) can choke the Q all day. That is only 40 players!!! It is insane to know that 40 players can shut down the ground Q all day in an MMO! The same goes for space.

The casual players need something to allow them to enjoy pvp opposed to realizing they are up against a premade, removing their shields, and hoping for a swift end to the demoralizing steam roll that is coming their way.

I think randomly getting space or ground won't work, many of us use different characters for that. The random teaming in the queue has been suggested many times, and most people support it save for the people who d endplay on premades most of the time even though we don't ever say to remove the team queue, just give players the choice of queuing for a team or random match. The premade players know most of the pvp community isn't interested in their style of play and would desert the teamed queues and their days of pugstomping would be over. They would have to either wait in the team queues for an actual team to queue against them or join the random queue and have their team broken up.

me personally I only want to do team queue stuff on the weekend when I can find more people on, my schedule during the week makes it so where I'd rather just quickly get into random matches instead. And if in the team queue on the weekend and it still doesn't pop I would have no problem joining the random queue then too.

It's not for them. It's for the casual community.

Mixing ground and space ques would never work.

As for space (unless you want to find people and start ground matches).

As for the que... I have said it in a few threads now... the que needs a TD overhaul.

Teaming should be allowed but only as a way to get your frineds in the same match... not the same team.

Cryptic needs to employ a back end scoring system that would track dmg kills healing wins ect ect and use that data to auto balance players onto teams in the que.

Hibert created that exact tool for the TD channel in a few hours of his spare time... Cryptic has no excuse.

I support this, and advocated it somewhat quietly for a while now. The reward should be significantly larger in EC and dilithium or perhaps bonus pvp rep marks when the pvp rep is introduced. I have proposed that PvP needs more game modes and a random que system as an option. I only play space, but would consider adding ground to the mix on the unyielding condition that stats are independent for space and ground.

All captains should have equal footing in both space and ground. I am not talking about taking away skill points, instead add 34k more and mandate that 300k are space and 100k are ground or something similar. The current system is stupid and I just don't get how anyone thought it was a good idea. I have some reservations about sto, but the skill tree is absolutely dumb in that you are not provided equal parts for ground and space among all characters. At least trade offs should be of the same food group, no sacrificing space abilities for unrelated ground and vice versa.

I would play the heck out of this if it was implemented. But.. I'm one of those people that likes both ground and space. Many spacers wouldn't like the idea of getting thrown into a ground match, or vise versa.

It would force people to try ground though, maybe that would help its popularity.

But given the state it's in at the moment, maybe not too.
