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?
Think about this: American Football has been in open beta for 144 years. ~Kotaku
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.
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.
