Once you stop thinking STO as trek the game becomes fun

Nah, that's strike force armor, not EVA suits.

I played it on Tribble and it was probably the most fun I've had on ground in the game.

Yes I do quite like ground to begin with, even if space is way better, but it was still really enjoyable and I would love to see this converted to PvP one day.

The fact it scales from 1-5 means that even on deserted days it should still let people play if, even if they have to wait for others to show to complete it.

I'd have to say no to that one.

It's a bad idea on so many levels and I'll give you two of them:

I played a game where there was a simplified terroritory subgame based on PvP.
It was roughly akin to factional terrority control.
90% of the time, it was controlled by the faction equivalent to KDF, the Starfleet equivalent barely got to do anything.

Also, I'm very much aware that fleets are inequal in size in this game, it would be possible for larger fleets to completely dominate all the smaller ones through strength of numbers.
That I saw as well, the terroritory control game was always controlled by the biggest fleets and for everyone else, challenging that control was impossible, so nobody ever did.


And one more thing to consider, which may or may not apply to STO.
Champions Online has PvP queues and they're dead, just because players stopped going to them.

Ok i am going to be honest now.....THIS LOOKS ****ING AWESOME!!!!!!! This is the kind of stuff we wanted all these months when we ask for new PVE content. Please make it tough! So it lasts! Even when geared. Will there be an elite version???? You need more elites, so people can still enjoy the PVE content when they are fully geared.

-pvp will be optional so no one force player to pvp
-the pvp maps to have a limited number of players, 5vs5/10vs10... not like 5 vs 50
Also in all games i played in pvp zones all time small specializing in pvp fleets was winning over big 400-500 fleets.

Some part of me keeps thinking REDACTED is the Omega Particle....

But then again, it also sounds like a faction of some sort like the Iconians.... Maybe I keep thinking Omega because I recently watched that episode.
