At the absolute least, I guarantee they'll make clear one thing - whether or not it's a faction or an FE. They'd be monumentally stupid to not clarify that well before the release. The outrage would rival the Fleet Marks debacle or the STF Dilithium Incident, but unlike those, they wouldn't be able to just tweak a rewards setting to quell it.
And if I'm wrong I will buy you a fleet module with my own EC. I'm serious.
I couldn't agree more. If it is anything less than a mini-faction, Cryptic would be well advised to clarify that to people very soon.
The dancing around the question that has been done is understandable from a professional perspective, but the fact they have refused to deny that a Rom faction will be launched in May has just built up a lot of peoples expectations/hopes for a third faction.
There will be a lot of rage if they don't deliver one and haven't let people down gently in advance.
...not to incite anything but even if it happened to be info on a new faction...the fact the rep system is PER CHARACTER is a horrid incentive to make a new character -_- (even if it wasnt a new faction its still bad to make a new character lol)
I keep looking for more hints in the planet. So far ive found a lobser-shaped land mass, a Charizard face, and a pair of open pliers. guess they are teaming up with the lobser-ppl, using a Charizard they will pry (using pliers) at something...
It's true, we're teaming up with Highlights Magazine.
