We obviously won't agree on this so I won't waste time arguing over it. I did already say I liked your original idea though.

Question why should Romulan player need a reputation system for their own faction while the other two faction Federation the KDF don't have a reputation system for their faction. But get their high end stuff from their faction.

Bwah?

Non-combat alts?

How does a character advance in this game avoiding combat? Is there a feature I'm missing?

To answer your question, exploration missions will take you all the way to VA. But that's not what happens, rather people make alts to grind dilithium

Speaking on behalf of my Own Romulans (currently in tribble test limbo)
We don't trust ourselves and D'tan DEFINATELY should not trust us as we are both planing on setting him on fire

So let me get this straight.

You're willing to give the Romulan's an unequal advantage in the Romulan rep system, because of the storyline (which I agree with)

But you're against having an account wide unlock, which would make it fair to all players, because you don't want non-combat players wondering around in useless (to them since they don't do combat) MK XII stuff, due to asthetics?

Reputation is your char's reputation with the faction. It's not the reputation of your dil-grinding alts, its the reputation for the chars that have actually earned sweat equity with the faction, as represented by the faction marks that are awarded.

Now, your Romulan char should have a good reputation with the Romulan Republic already--you earned it during the campaign. But, the reputation gear is so much better than the regular Mk XII gear, it is hard to justify this much of a jump. So, a compromise, is to let them rank up twice as fast: let them get level 1 in a single day instead of two days, let them get level 2 in three days instead of a week.

All the other chars still need to earn it, since they have not proven themselves yet.

I wouldn't be opposed to a small mark reward for completing Romulan story missions - maybe 5 or so marks per mission. This could be rewarded to allied characters who teamed with Romulans to run missions together, and, perhaps, even for KDF and Federation story missions where the primary foe was an enemy of the Republic - in particular, the Tal'shiar and, when they finally make their appearance, the Iconians.

The only edge I could see Romulans having with the Romulan rep system is adding some Romulan marks to their episode missions, at least the ones directly linked to supporting New Romulus in any way.

I have a mule toon that never left the acadamy map and got to 50 simply by doffing. (had to do a mission or 2 to get to the level you can doff but really the toon more or less stood in one spot)
