[Romulan] Which faction will you ally with?
 
With the newest Ask Cryptic, we found out that Romulan is not a straightly "third side" but an ally to one of the side.

So in this case, would you ally with Klingons like TOS days, or ally with Starfleet?

I personally feel that I do not know... KDF, save for the lack of missions, actually have better DoFF missions, but I fear that everyone and their mother will pick Federation and make teh "war" even more lopsided. I would rather they just stay neutral and can swap back and forth as I feel like it - you know, actually like a Romulan.

Seeing as picking either side is not an alliance, but servitude, crawling beneath new masters and doing their bidding, I want to pick.. neither!

3 years I've been waiting for playable Romulans. 3 years, and now this. :(

Most of mine will choose to infiltrate the Federation.

I may roll another one, perhaps a Reman if I get that far into Rom Rep, who will infiltrate the KDF.

Certainly Fed, and ultimately join the Fleet I already have set up there. A second character I make may align with the Klingons. Maybe.

Neither.

I'm not going to complete that mission, I will just wait for the day where Cryptic fixes this mistake.

Now if that day ever comes, eh...

join the feds and be subject to bad pvping and ESD chat? never gonna happen.

I was hoping to play a Vulcan-Romulan half-breed sci captain, and if I stick to that with the current role definitions then I will have to play Fed. TBH, I dont know that I want to bother with grinding another toon, no longer enthusiastic about it really.

Neither. I'll play to level 10, and when I get stonewalled there by the stupid 'choice', I'll just stop playing that character.

It's a shame that the hybrid option is locked behind a paywall. Combined with the Reman being a reputation system unlock and the inevitable liberated borg being lifetime only (seriously, two species of a four-species faction being restricted to paying players? The heck?!?) I don't see many options here. I think that playing a Vulcan-Romulan hybrid would be interesting, too bad I won't be able to.
