PVP, Where is it?
I remember when I first started this game close to launch, and either as a Fed or a Klingon you had the ability to level and get gear through PVP. However now it seems even at max level the players are needing to wait for an hour to just get into one random match. Some have even given up and only do premades.

What happened? Is this the sign of the player base completely dropping off from a F2P game, PVP is so horrid that no one does it anymore, or is this a software issue where the Queue is bad and they should go back to the PVP systems where you queued at the docks?

Its the oposite. See the balance for pvp isn't good so people don't do it. They aren't dropping it, nor is the player base, its just simply not good in most peoples opinions so they stoped playing pvp. Most the sales are from people doing pve, and a large amount are more then pleased with that, and currently a lot of pve activity gives you a very clear advantage thanks to the fleet system.

So players are declining on their own do to the balance issues, why hop into it and find yourself out gunned or classed? Add in the constant bickering over who is the best since unlike other pvp games where everything is copy pasted, this is not and people get upset. I do find it funny the pve players argue the ships are too similiar stat wise, but the pvpers argue the oposite and some ships and factions get an advantage due to slots and stats.

There is a very active pvp community, join to OrganizedPvP Channel, we have friendly matches, tournamets, etc (also check the PvP section in the official sto forum). Queques are slow if u are in KDF side, kdf pvp is pretty much dead until they do crossfaction queques.

wait they still have pvp in this game?!? lol
Player base is fine it's just 90% of the players are pve simply because like everyone said, pvp has not been high on the devs to do list, and it is still unbalanced to a lot of players. There still is an active pvp base, but you prob need to join a pvp focused fleet to get into it.
