We already have 10v10 though...so you'd want to remove 10v10s?

With what I had there, it would work something like this:

4 Fed, 4 KDF, 4 Rom.
+1 Fed, +1 KDF.
5v5 FvK launches.
4 Rom wait.
+5 Fed, +1 Rom.
5v5 FvR launches.

...or...

4 Fed, 4 KDF, 4 Rom.
+1 Fed, +1 KDF.
5v5 FvK launches.
4 Rom wait.
+1 Fed, +1 KDF.
The 5v5 FvK becomes 6v6 FvK.
4 Rom still wait.

It's basically what we see now with the FvF, FvK, KvK queues. Though, I suppose one would have to add a third group, eh? Cause I didn't really provide for FvF, KvK, RvR...as much as I did Faction X vs. Faction Y, where X and Y could be Fed, KDF, or Rom.

So it would be Same Faction Queues, Faction Queues, and Mixed Queues.

But still, it sounds like you don't want there to be a 10v10 fight at all...? Even the 10v10 we already have, you'd rather not have?

ill be flying something small, turny, with enhanced battle cloak and universal boff slots for one of my unusual sci builds.. green and loaded with torpedos

PVP should be
KvF
RvF
KvR

and one persistent ZONE with holdings / flags / capture where all 3 factions would compete.. could give an XP bonus for the whole faction according to actual score too..

lulz, how about we see how Cryptic does it before we go nuts about the potential queuing system.

Yes, keep 10v10, and give me that back that one PvP mission that involved protecting freighters or something.

But, but, but... my potential queuing system's so simple and would work regardless of how many factions they added!

Course, I honestly don't think they're adding Romulans. I agree with what was said about the name being a tie into those books about the Romulan-Earth War during the ENT era. That it's basically going to be a Romulan vs. Romulan War where the KDF/Feds are backing the "good" Romulans while the "bad" Romulans are still being backed by the Iconians.

I will bet that May 2013 will be a new series of Featured Episodes, not a Romulan faction.

The D'deridex tactics dont seem to indicate that, its a ship that usually decloaks and tries to end the fight without moving much, considering its size I would not think it can turn as fast as a Galaxy class, you are making it out-turn the Excelsior and the Soverign ... heck you are making it out-turn the Connie at 10 turn rate.

Likely its big, does not turn very well and its squishy and Galor BO? Dont think so at least certainly not a Eng Sci station, Lt. Cmdr Tac is a given due to the usual trick of TB -> HY III but NPC ships also use Viral Matrix and Photonic Shock Wave so at least Lt. Cmdr for Science as well, its Eng I suppose will take a hit.

the big escort thing from nemisis will proboly be like the breen ship, a destroyer type big fat escort
The Valdore? lets not go over that one ... also its in the game already, Mogai class (novels decided to name it that)


Quote:
the bop will proboly be like the defiant
I am sorry but if the centuries old venerable Romulan Bird-of-Prey that dates back to TOS have the same abilities as the Defiant I will die laughing.

No, its not like the Defiant because we already HAVE a Romulan Defiant ... the Valdore/Mogai.


Quote:
and the scimitar will be a carrier type, guessing commander tactical, the rest of the stations eng and sci
I do not think we will ever get a Scimitar, the ship is far too powerful (we ARE talking about a ship that fought a Soverign class AND TWO Valdore at the same time) to be put on the players hands.

Im hoping and praying they dont make the scimitar class carriers. At the most just make it a carrier dreadnaught hybrid, just one bay plz, the nemisis battle was so awesome and they didn't use the fighters for it.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.
