There's no way around it...
 
Guys....we need Romulan STF Missions.

Okay, now lemme explain why. Grinding for Omega Marks, and Dilithium is unbelievably simple thanks to the PvE queues and the rewards you get for the time put in. Anywhere I go, all I have to do is go to the PvE queue, join Infected Space Elite....accepted 5 seconds later, BAM. In about 35 minutes I just made ~75 Omega Marks, 960 Dilithium, and 1-11 BNPs, accounting for up to 2000 more dilithium. A couple of these a day I can fill my projects daily with plenty of Omega Marks left over for equipment requisitions. SWEET!

Now let's do the Romulan Reputation! Alright....um, well I'm at DS9, so I guess I'm gonna have to cross space to even get to New Romulus...and when I get there, I can do about 2 missions in maybe 35-40 minutes, that's 20 Romulan Marks plus 5 for the Beginning a New Future mission...about 25 marks in the time it makes for me to get 3x as many of the Borg Reputation System AND I get dilithium out of the latter. :( see a problem here yet?

So I appeal and say Please give us Romulan STFs. I get that the Romulan missions are easier and therefore grant us less marks, but why can't we have harder missions with greater rewards?

What if we got some space/ground missions involving Stealth Strikes against the Tholians or the Tal Shiar? Plus Elite versions, giving us ~75 Romulan Marks and 960 Dilithium (or Fleet Marks ([50]?). This will be much more convenient than having to fly to the Tau Dewa Sector Block, beam down to New Romulus and get less than half the rewards in the same amount of time.

To ensure that New Romulus doesn't lose its popularity at the same time (and this goes for the War Zones on Defera and Nukara as well) I recommend increasing the rewards to 30 Romulan Marks per mission completed (except for Epohh tagging which is different) and a bonus 20 for the Beginning a New Future mission.

And don't forget, give us transwarp to New Romulus

No Transwarp should be only to your Faction's HQ . Nothing more .

If you run five of the patrol/kill missions, (can even be the same one) you get 75 rom marks from the sector contact (forgot her name). This is actually the best constant gain of rom marks, 75 a day, vs about 50 per day for the epohhs (5 days for getting tags, 3 for raising the epohh to max and you get 400 marks (400/8 equals 5), unless you have a really good doff when converting tags to epohh research, if you crit you can get two or sometimes three epohh research from tags).

But 75 marks for about 20-30 minutes is about the same as an ISE run in both time and marks you get. No dilithium, but its a single player mission that's easy as cake.

I was thinking the exact same thing takes me ages to get a few romulan marks but get plenty of omega from the STFs

I agree with the warp to as well, one of them paid warp to missions.

Why aren't you tagging epohhs? Sure, it takes a few days to get set up, but once you do, it's five minutes a day, and you collect 400 marks every few days. I got through my entire romulan rep just by tagging.

Because playing patty-cake with space bunnies isn't what a lot of folks want to do?

I don't particularly care for it either, but it IS a legitimate way of obtaining RM.

I am tagging epohhs, and its pretty good I suppose, but it doesn' seem as consistent as the STFs...as in, you need to conserve marks, build them up over time and not blow them all on something right away.

The patrol mission, sure its alright, but its the only real option, and if you ask me, kinda lame.

maceruk 02-06-2013 02:41 AM

I will look in to the tagging, i hear people shouting for teams when i visited new Romulas but did not give it a try as no idea what its about.

I would still prefer some more space and ground options though as i like combat.
