With the newly arriving Romulan faction, are we getting 5 vs 5 vs 5 matches now?

Sadly I doubt it'll be 5 v 5 v 5, since I suspect that'd require new tech, rather they'll be the usual 5v5.

This is something that's worried me slightly to be honest. The FvK queues have enough trouble popping as it is and an additional option might make the wait even longer.

If it required 5 Fed/5 KDF/5 Rom...it would kill queues.
If it was not going to require that, then it might as well just be crossfaction queues where you're lumped together with random folks unless you brought a team.

Do we think they're going to go with:

FvF, FvK, FvR
KvK, KvF, KvR
RvR, RvF, RvK
FvKvR

Or do we think they're going to go with:

Red vs. Blue

It's an interesting thought process, mind you - since as it stands - even in FvF/KvK - you still get Red v. Blue.

But now there's Green!

Will be interesting to see... have to figure sometime around Feb of next year they'll get around to thinking about it, eh?

Wasn't there supposed to be something about doing away with faction queues and just those who queue up to have randomly assigned teams?

the 3rd faction presents a bit of a problem for faction pvp. the number of players pvping, stretched between 3 factions, pops arent going to be happening i don't think, except for all you fvf only guys. say good by to faction pvp, want all kdf? role a pugmade i guess

How about a combined queue that doesn't allow mixed teams? In other words, if I queue as a Klingon it will stick me on a team with other Klingons, but the team I'm up against could be either Federatoin, Romulan, or even another Klingon team.

The devs have talked about all factions in the same PvP team or they could of meant what Hurleybird just said above.

Min 4 with the following in queue:

4 Fed
3 KDF
9 Rom (5 that were Fed and 4 that were KDF)

3 Fed
3 KDF
8 Rom (4 that were Fed and 4 that were KDF)

It's along the lines of the various reasons for not splitting Premade/PUG, gear levels, etc, etc, etc - because it's splitting the queues.

Then you get the RvR disaster: Two teams of invisible ships each waiting for a target to show up.
