Ok, the naked truth
 
Romulans are not a real faction, we are Fed or KDF mercenaries. We can't play Romulan episodes together.

Sad, very sad :(.

Why is that the sole definition of a faction?

Romulans have:

Exclusive ships
Exclusive missions
Exclusive social zone
Exclusive tutorial

everything the other 2 factions launched with, and some might say a lot more than the KDF did.

but we don't get are own kits fleets and not talking about starbase's we are addons to fed/kdf end of story

The sole definition of a faction: players can group together, period.

Can Fed group with KDF? No, diferent faction.
Can Fed Romulans group with KDF Romulans? No, diferent faction.

It is very easy but yeah, we have exclusive ships, missions, social zone, exclusive tutorial, we are a faction!!!, good point.

Fed and KDF can team up for just about everything at endgame. Be honest, how often do you group with anyone before that?

I'm just sayin, what makes a "faction" is only black and white if you cherrypick one thing and use that as the definition. Not every game has to do factions the same way and they don't have to do every faction the same way within one game either.

That's cool. And you guys know in advance that you'll need to each ally with the same faction so you can group. No worries there.

Do you have friends playing STO? Don't ofense but I have friends who want to play Fed Romulans, I will play KDF romulans, have you seen our problem?. We have different faction now. STO is not just end game so we have a different point of view about this game my friend.
