I was wrong [edit: oh wait, I wasn't. LOL.] about the Romulan faction. I was right about the Rage and Tears. They will flow in bucketfuls.

And epohs are actually an easy way to grind marks.

If I could tag Borg puppies for 5 days, then turn it in for an item that in 3 days gives 400 omega marks.... I would be *Happy* .

After all, when STO turned 3 years old you still had to play 25 levels as a Fed to go into KDF and even then you skipped through 40% of the levels.

I'm still concerned about the content and how they plan on having enough for 50 levels of Romulan play and an extra 20 levels of KDF play. Hopefully this is something they've been secretly working on since PWE bought them a year and a half ago because then there's a good shot the players will get what they want and expect.
To you I say:

LOL!

Well predictable responses came from all the naysayers, who have all now moved onto naysaying whatever is left to naysay now that they thing they naysaid has proven its anti-nay field was able to withstand the nayionic torpedoes.

Of course now it's, "Yes but the Romulan faction will suck/won't get enough dev attention/won't have enough players" even though of course we know YOU'LL roll a rommy and so will I and so will... everyone!

What will really happen is they'll have to finally update the PVP system to accommodate a third faction. Wow a change to PVP for the first time since beta!

NOW THAT WILL ONLY HAPPEN IF HELL FREEZES OVER.

I am going to stick with my original opinion: It's better to be cautious and expect the worst, and then be happily surprised, than vice versa.

AND... If it is a full working faction, STILL remains to be seen (Think KDF), but granted it does look better now than before.

I thought they previously said we wouldn't be able to fly a Deiderex.

Now they say we will be able to?

Which is it?
If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting.

I believe they only said we wouldn't be able to fly it as a lockbox ship (unlike the Galor).

I cried last night because I was so happy to hear that we get a faction at last, something that I have been waiting for since back in beta. I suppose I wasn't totally discounting the idea of a faction coming in May, it was more of a "I'm-too-afraid-to-get-my-hopes-up" thing.
^^ This one has learned the power of pessimism! Optimists are either right or have something to be down about. Pessimists are either right or have something to be happy about!

I was sceptical about a faction to be added and came to doubt it more till it was annouced so happy again. Though I wasn't committed which way knowing MMO's in general lol

Let's just wait till the faction comes out in may before we pass judgement.

They said we wouldn be able to fly it by getting it in a grab-bag...
