    • Improved the PvP Queue UI:
      • Queue list has been reworked to be more readable.
      • Each queue displays an average amount of time it will take to get into a map.
    • The queue minimum requirement for large battles has been reduced to a lower value (smaller game) after a queue timer expires, allowing for both large and small games to be accessible from the same queue.

    • Players can now challenge other players to private PvP matches
    • Up to 20 players can participate
    • The teams can be mixed faction
      • Feds can invite Klingons to these matches, and they can be on the same team.
    • Participants can be from any tier
      • All tier 5, or any mix of tier 1 through 5
    • The teams can be unbalanced
      • For example, 10 tier 1 ships vs 2 tier 5 ships
    • The map the game will be played on can be set specifically
      • Maps are still restricted by game type
    • Players can set the number of kills to win on Arenas
    • Players can set the amount of influence to win on Capture and Hold maps
    • Players can set the amount of Station Health is allotted in Assault Maps
  • Challenge System UI:
    • There are team lists where players can change which team they’re on
      • Click and drag your name to the team you want
      • The initiator of the challenge can adjust the team of anyone participating
    • There is a chat window embedded in this window for all players that have been invited
  • Consoles can once again be interacted with in the Shanty Town Assault map.

  • All enemy and friendly NPCs will reset when the Fluidic Space Fleet Action is completed.

    • Permissions are now organized similarly to the Fleet Settings window.

  • The Bridge Officer Trainer UI now saves your preferences from previous sessions.

Known Issues:
