Yes, yes they are coming. Anyone who says otherwise either doesn't want them, or is too much of a conspiracy theorist in that they believe it's some great Cryptic hoax. Ignore these people.

All signs point to yes, but nothing's been stated outright.

Now sit back, relax, and wait for "Romulan Faction Thread #8642947".

There is something about Romulans in the May update, but whether it is a playable Romulan faction is not known. All I know is that if they introduce a playable Romulan faction without completing the KDF faction will cause a lot of KDF players to be seriously ticked off.

Funny thing to say, when all you got to believe in, is based on a conspiracy theory ..

Which signs would that be ... Forum speculations about a Wallpaper ...

There is absolutely no official announcement 3 months before release ... and most signs point to "probably not" like this :

Dstahl: We are not ready to begin discussing the details of what is in our May update, however the reference definitely suggests that it is related to Romulans in some way. We will share more news about the update and give a clearer response to your question as we get closer to May.
.....
we need to reserve these ships for a future update when we can implement a playable Romulan faction.
.....
If and when we release a Romulan faction, ....

That was several 'Seasons' ago... it seems to me that by now, They probably have more than enough KDF-only missions on the back burner waiting to be added.

I'd be really surprised if come May, the Klingon starting point Isn't bumped back to level one.
Sorry i call BS on this one, I don't believe for a second Cryptic is working on KDF Content for the last Seasons and is holding it back till now ... I don't even believe they have a complete Tutorial ... all you might get in May is 1-2 Missions ... and I don't think they're gonna be KDF only like the Season 2 Stuff ...

This doesn't make much sense, since technically all we have to go one is a webpage with a logo and a slogan, nothing else.

I would say we need tapered expectations, especially when considering Cryptic's past with this game. All you are doing is setting yourself up for a major letdown.

If a Romulan faction comes, great. If it doesn't you all will be quick to blame Cryptic for getting your hopes up (and even I, as a very outspoken critic of Cryptic, would probably side with them).

Of course, we can only hope Cryptic decides to stop acting like the National Security Agency and just comes out and tells us yay or nay.

They won't do that until the may update is ready to release. Why? Because people nerdrage too much. If they tell us ANYTHING, it gets treated as an ironclad promise.... which is stupid(of us, the players). But stupid or not it happens. Thus they don't give us any data at all unless it's been triple checked and confirmed.
