Knowing the LOLCryptic the rommies will have ships every bit as good as fed or KDF Fleet Ships, by default and not have to worry about starbases. It'd be an ultimate **** Move.
Though it has one tremendous upside. It gives New PvP Fleets a chance to grow against the rest of us on even terms.
Would I move over? Only if I could start at level cap. PvE in this game is so bad I can barely level my new kdf sci... who gets a level every quest turn in.
yeah. Not having a separate empire like the other groups would be a huge disappointment.
But of course it DOES take a lot of work to create the planets and systems, and nps, et.c. for a particular zone of space. Hopefully all that will be done by season 10 or something.
I guess it'd depend on how good the Romulan faction/ships are. That and, well, who doesn't have a cross-faction toon or two? Can't see anyone not at least taking the Romulans out for a spin once or twice after launch-day fever has subsided (maybe launch week would be more accurate).
