pvp in this game is turning into cloakers online, we all know the kdf had cloaks most of which were not battle cloaks, only the b'rel had enhanced battle cloak and it paid for it with very weak hull and shields and now the rommys come along with hull hp of normal ships and they all get battle cloaks that are even better than the kdf cloaks with no down sides, and don't give me this we have less power crap because with the leech console open to the rommys and the new warp cores power levels are a joke its easy to get well over 100 in each sub system now and some of the unique rommy boff skills are stupidly op.
This game is a joke now it was bad before but you had 2 clear choices fed= great hull and shield vs kdf= weaker hulls and less shield mod but had cloaks now you bring in the rommys with the best of both worlds soon this game will be rommys online and then the game will die.
Perfect world you will destroy this game with your own greed you cant see 2 step infront of your own faces, i used to play perfect world the game and you destroyed that with your greed and your going to do the same with this game too, this power creep thing has got to stop

OP, like you I am not fond of the romulan ships having all but the kitchen sink with little or no real penalty but as theres a snowball chance in hell of them doing anything (rommies are the new cash cow), learn to slot abilities that can decloak them and as soon as you see a pesky rommy playing hide and seek, hit them with it - better yet, carry two so you can outwit sci team
While I have been in several pvp pug teams that are all roms, I must say that on the whole, 5R v 5R is is generally not my experience. Although I will say that I haven't been in a pvp pug that didn't contain at least two others in non-lockbox Rom ships.
I did once however enter a pug with a friend and the team consisted of me in a TS BC (sci), my friend in a D'd (eng), a T'Varo (tac) and two feds in non-escort ships (tacs). If I remember rightly, the other team were all in non-cloaking fed/lockbox ships and we all died pretty much straight away in the opening battle. T'Varo guy wasn't happy and suggested we not play their game and to use cloak hit and run tactics. 'No battle cloak' I said, and promptly was told I shouldn't be coming into pvp without one. I wasn't really in the mood, and I was getting terrible lag anyway, so I just said 'Ok' and left, which is something I rarely do, if ever, especially in pvp, but just take a look at the team set up again... How dare those feds come into pvp in a ship that doesn't have a battle cloak....
So I think that while it may not be as bad as all that, there are definitely some players out there who think the game should be 'rommys online'.
Could have been worse Feds could have had to face off against Pure Romulan faction.
Personally I still see more Federation ships than Romulan in PvP que for Feds. I see a lot more Romulans from the KDF side. The few Romulans I do see are either new players or Feds playing Romulan that really don't know how to effectively use the cloak.
The only 'balance' in this arguement is Romulans are open to both factions, doesn't mean you have to roll a Romulan but you can always get one in your team.
Romulans do have access to most universal consoles though, we have been gifted with an unfair advantage in this respect.
