That actually sounds exciting. Imagine Capture and Hold...

If the Romulan faction is done and is a resounding success, I'm hoping Cryptic might also implement the idea of a Dominion playable faction. (Dominion players are isolated in the Gamma Quadrant until level 40 or so, then can rejoin the Alpha Quadrant. More territory would be available for high ranking Fed/KDF/Rommie players)

i would not be surprised if a 3rd faction was the death of faction ques. do we really think they would go to the trouble of making all the que types? and if they did, could we even fill them so half of them ever had games pop?

Its just a Logo. Where is the text telling us anything?
Nevermind found the video.

Though rumor says it may be a great update for the KDF to move toward completion with the start of the RSE finally begining. It may even have an adventure zone for the two factions.

Only the Devs know for sure.......

You are a more reasonable fellow than your beard has led me to believe, Roach-san. I shall do you a great honor and take your words of wisdom to heart... as should we all.

Ya gotta admit, though, it's nice to fantasize a bit every once in awhile, though.

Worst. Idea. Ever.

Given all the canon references we have to Klingons, we do not have a functioning KDF faction.

Now, while we *STILL* have a non-functioning KDF faction, everybody and their brother is excited about them making *ANOTHER* faction, that has *LESS* information and backstory then the Klingons do...

I have 10k EC says this time next year if we do get a Romulan faction the boards are full of people complaining that its not finished, and that the KDF is still not finished.

Finish the KDF. If you manage it, then start a thrid, unneccisary faction.

There will be Empire to defend!

On the serious note, i hope it will give players everything that was lacking on kdf side.

Work being done on the queue system?

Would be the perfect time to get rid of ques alltogether (except privates) and make open PvP zones for all to enjoy.......

Faction Queues and STF PUG-like Queues.

Faction Queues:
FvRvK - first come first serve. If there are only 10 Feds in the queue, it will be a 5v5 FvF. If there are 5 Feds and 5 KDF, it will be a 5v5 FvK. If there are 5 Roms and 5 KDF, it will be a 5v5 KvR. If there are 4 Feds, 4 KDF, 4 Rom...the first two to get to 5 will go while the one that didn't get 5 will have to wait. If the two that got 5 manage to get 5 again before the other, that other will wait again....possibly again...and again. If that other gets 5, then they will face whichever of the other two queues five first. If there were 5 additional available for two, they'd make it a 10v10. Priority given to establishing 5v5's and then filling out 10v10s.

Plausible?

STF PUG-like Queues:
Mixed teams of Feds, KDF, and Roms...
