It would save time with balance arguments in lobbies if there was a clear display of the total strength of the teams. I appreciate that it wouldn't be totally accurate because ratings are not exact, but I think it would be very helpful nonetheless.
There's a mod called Kyro's lobby mod that does this.
@archsimkat that's great, thanks!
I've tried searching for that in the mods section in the FAF client but can't see it - am I missing something?

There is a readme with it. I got it to work using those instructions.
It's not a regular in-game mod, it's a "lobby mod" . . . you can't modify the lobby itself using game mods that are installed/managed in the normal way. That's why there are special instructions.
