So, if its a reference to that, I see nothing but a S8 story arc and content teaser for the Romulan/Iconian/Sela connection to the war. NOT another half-assed faction.

I agree. And it makes more sense that it's that, then the Romulan Faction that I'd love to see, but not at the expense of the Klingons not being finished and fully fleshed out. Because we know they are not.

They'd also have to find a way to introduce new maps and new PVP options when they release a new faction. Something else I think we're still at least another year or two from getting.
You think that your beta test was bad?

A new faction? Maybe after the KDF gets more to it it'll be better. But I'd still play it for the half dozen missions.

More story missions progressing from the situation from three years ago? That'd be nice.

Story locked behind a rep grind? Have fun guys. I'll be in the Foundry instead.

I'm cautiously optimistic, regardless.

other 2 faction pvp mmo's have found that adding a 3rd faction is a viable solution to common balance issues that arise. Battlestar Galatia online is adding a 3rd faction to deal with this issue. So its not far fetched to think that STO might do it as well.

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.
Sounds pretty good, minus the 10v10 stuff.

Nothing wrong with 10v10 mayhem. If you have no guts, you do not need to queue Jorf

oh noes...

Don't they know that walking under a raptors wing, much like walking under a ladder, is supposed to bring bad luck?

Deal breaker is that you can only have five people on a team, and assuming you can fix that the game is still far too spammy for those kinds of matches to be fun, not to mention performance issues.

I just so hope it is really the Romulan faction. And I also hope that PvP will be implemented well for it. ^^
