One more question would this be in a challenge match? can't you make mixed teams?

No, you can have them on the same side, but they can't be teamed. Makes it hard to see the status of cross faction team mates and select them. You could run a targeting script to help compensate, you could also try to make sure there is even distribution of klings and feds per team so everyone has the same issue (eg. 2 klings 2 feds assuming a 50/50 ratio of attendees). Having your view set up to show health bars on all ships helps.

...Or something that might be fun and interesting is not allowing any teaming. Each player would be teamed with one other person not particapting in their match to insure no one cheated. Would make healing *very* interesting to say the least.

Player Pool and "ROlling":
You could enter all player names in an Excel Sheet and have the "dice" being rolled as a kind of script. (There must be some Excel expert here that could do it, I am not one of them unfortunately.)

For cross-faction teaming, we will probably have to wait for Season 4.

Though we could theoretically play on Tribble if the build is ready by the next match. That also solves any problems players might have to adapt to the "fun skills only" restriction. But it relies on Tribble running at the time of such an event.

Maybe. I think it wasn't listed yet, but snix mentioned once that it was in a branch of the Cryptic Engine and since Season 4 is going to merge the STO branch with another branch, there is a good chance it would be available.

That doesn't mean anything for the Qeueues, but it could mean Joint STFs and Featured Episodes, and Private Challenges with cross-teams. It could very well be possible but still not activated, or it could be a different branch...

Since there is no official announcement yet (AFAIK - I didn't notice it yet in the latest Tribble patch notes), my post might be over-optimistic. *backpedal*

Mmm..

Depending on date, Id be game..

What is the plan?

We get teams set, and they figure out which ship/setup everyone is running after?

Otherwise I could see 4 cruisers going against 4 escorts easily

I can login between M-F 8am (0800) -4pm (1600) and I normally have to logout by 5pm (1700) est is better for me since that's only time slot that I can really play.

Weekends are spotty for me.

What about Velveeta setups, we all know Velveeta isn't really cheese.
