I hope this is not an April Fools joke.

As I have said in many threads, the only problem Cryptic has is in communicating. Once the interviews and advertising conflicts, the players will start to react in a very negative manner.

After the new website went up, the impression everyone got was that a full-blown Romulan faction was on the way. Within a matter of a few days, two contradicting statements were released.

Reference One: Ask Cryptic: Legacy of Romulus

Reference Two: Legacy of Romulous Info. Page

According to those above statement, the Romulans will be a full independent faction. One the following was added later the next day, the new information contradicted the first information.

Reference Three: A note from dStahl:

Cryptic doesn't communicate clearly.

Regardless about what we finally obtain, I will just be happy to play as a Romulan. I just wished Cryptic was not being so complicated.
The way I understand it, the RR is a faction that doesn't have independent Fleet functionality at launch. And it will be able to access some of the stuff from their allies. That's really all that sets it apart from the Fed/KDF factions.

And I doubt a lot of people will choose to fly their allied faction's ships, because who creates a Romulan to fly an Odyssey or a Bortasqu'?
