With the Romulan Faction, and the way it is now, being allies with the federation and klingon empire was only temporary and that later in eather another game update or expansion, there would be an option to just go strickly Republic Romulan without the need for federation fleets or klingon fleet holdings to be used by Romulans. That you would have your own Romulan Starbase. Would you Feel much better with what we will be getting in may in terms of Romulan Faction?

Or are you happy with how the Romulan Faction is being developed currently and being tied to eather Federation or Klingon?

/discuss

For me if there is a major plan by the devs that the romulans are only allieing themselves with the federation and klingon empires strickly because they are rebuilding and will eventually be in my terms there own faction with there own starbases ect, I would be happy. For me I just cant get over the fact that I just dont really like the romulans being "to me" developed currently and being forced to choose sides between selecting the federation or klingon sides as allies. To me I see something totally wrong with this. If these are republic romulans, why are they choosing two different sides which would result in there species fighting each other for two other factions issues.

Yes, if the Dev's flat out came out and said that Romulans being forced to serve as auxiliaries in foreign fleets was temporary and that we would get the choice to form our own fleets and fleet progression I would be mollified. I would also like them to add 3 way pvp but they have planted their flag that this will be a two way pvp game.

Which is a shame because the best non-fps PvP ever is D.A.O.C's three-way RvR. Hands-down.

I was a little disappointed that Romulans weren't really going to be their own faction, but i suppose the explanation is a good one for the time being. Maybe further along down the road they will correct this, or add a dominion Faction as a full faction, but for the time being i'm okay with this as it's new content that i don't have to pay for.

having romulans ally themselves with either KDF or FED is a great idea imo. it instantly creates mroe content for romulans just by linking them to a current faction.

at Tier 5 ( or some other tier) romulan reputation though, there should be an option to create a romulan fleet with romulan everything.

I was thinking about 3 faction pvp and while it would be fun, i don't think it would make sense for the romulans. after all they are rebuilding and already accept aid from both KDF and FED.

seriously though, allying with fed or kdf and geting access to their ships while playing a romulan faction? thats gona be awesome! can't wait to see what kind of builds will come out of this, "BOP defiants", klingon bops being used by romulans with romulan bop gear, "scimitar galaxy x". will be cool.

It can be a "great idea" but like you mentioned as well as I did, they are currently rebuilding there "faction" so why would you allie with eather a kdf side or federation side, and having to pretty much fight your own kind in the process...

Its great to get gear from another faction and the ability to play other faction missions or even share your own missions but never the less 1+1= doesnt equal 2 for me that is in this equation.

yes maybe not a great idea to ally with fed or kdf for a pure romulan faction, but I like it because maybe romulans can have the best of both worlds.

What if they do add a Cardassian faction one day, are they just gonna do this with them do? Why call them new factions, they would basically be faction expansions.

I like a lot of others was super excited till then mentioned the choice, I don't even know if I will play but a token Romulan unless they make the ships really interesting with the Quantum Singularity cores.

Same here. I still dont get why it cant be done. They should really list reasons why this cant happen.

My whole thing is that, these romulan republic romulans are just getting over what happened to thier planet and are trying to rebuild in a sense, and even trying to get away from the Tal'shiar, why would they allie themselves with two different factions and letting their own people fight each other in a war they shouldnt be part of in the first place. Dont they have the nessary equipment to make a starbase.. is just dosnt compute on my end here at all. I understand the federation and klingons are helping the romulan rebuild.

Ask the Klingons. They'll list some of the reasons why the devs couldn't do X, Y or Z for that faction.
