Tal-Shiar?
 
I tried searching in the sub-forum for my question, but I think I screwed something up and didn't get any hits.

Is there currently a way to join with the Tal-Shiar and not the Republic? I vaguely recall a devblog mentioning that at some point we will get to choose who to side with, but I don't know if that's been scrapped or not.

At one point in the tutorial you have some dialogue with Hakeev, I was a bit antagonistic, but if I had been submissive would anything have changed?

Thanks!

No, it wouldn't, because Haveek hates everyone. (but especially you)
And there isn't any way to join the Tal Shiar.

I think you mistook the choice betweeen KDF and FED alliance to a republic-talshiar choice.

No, I was mistaking the nebulousness of the first devblog about the "three" factions within the Romulan society. Pretty much they made it seem like you would eventually have to choose between D'tan and Sela, but I suppose not D:

Thanks!

Gecko and a few of the other talk about this in like every interview at the moment. Tal Shair are not bad, not evil THERE VERY VERY VERY BAD AND EVIL!

it comes down too that most people don't want to play VERY EVIL and BAD toons, I know you want too, but i mean in general, and the numbers prove this, (they talk about the numbers in City of Hero's vs. City of Villains, and KDF vs. Fed etc.)

Also the other reason is the story. They want the Tal Shair to be the bad guys... they're working with the Iconians and there up too a lot of bad stuff.

But City of Heroes came out years before City of Villians. And you have to be Fed to get to the KDF. Doesn't that massively skew the numbers? And even if it doesn't, shouldn't the people who want to play bad guys have an option? We have three factions and the worst ones are the honorable opponent Klingons. Is there no possibility of playing a Romulan as a Romulan?
