Cautiously interested to see what the impact is of all this to the KDF side.

PS I'm assuming we can (re)play the new 1-20 missions at lvl50, right?

Nothing.

The KDF gets to start at Level 1. Now it's becoming a full faction. They're probably adding new missions, otherwise, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to get to Level 50 in the amount of time a Fed would. The KDF gets a new tutorial. So dude, the facts are there for you. It's better than 0% more content.

Logically, that should be correct. As one usually can on the Federation side, I would assume such for all Factions.

I've seen a lot of rumors about all these new missions that the KDF is suppossedly going to be getting... did I miss a dev update or something, as I haven't seen any information supporting that.

Yes they are letting us finally start at level 1, but that is in no way a promise for more missions. The best we could possibly hope for is that any missions developed for the Romulan side will be faction neutral with Fed/KDF variants made. As far as any unique KDF only content, that is very doubtful.

The developers have repeatedly said the KDF isn't worth the investment of time and money, that isn't going to change now that they have a new faction that they have to share development resources with.

Right now the most logical outcome of the Romulan faction being added is that the KDF will be left with scraps of faction neutral content such as lock boxes and reputation rewards, with them eventually tweaking the few remaining low tier ships that haven't received fleet variants yet.

This, 100x this.

Since the game launched, the KDF has been the only faction to receive faction specific missions. Everything the Federation has received has also had a KDF mirror (or been a reworking of an existing mission). The KDF faction specific missions are by far better developed, better looking and have improved tech over the Federation missions.

The KDF also received a ton of new ships while the Federation received very few. There is near total ship parity at this point (not perfect, but closer than one could expect). The argument could also be made that the KDF consoles are superior to the Federation consoles.

What I really want to know is can the KDF survive without their common anger at Cryptic? It has been so long that I believe even if Cryptic copied the Fed side of the game, turned everything red and called it the KDF, most KDF players would still believe they were owed more content than the Federation.

As a Romulan fan, I am happy to exist in STO. I would have been more than happy with what the KDF launched with and appreciative of the abundance of support that Cryptic actually did give the KDF.

This is the final nail in the coffin of KDF.
