I am NOT saying no to the the Romulan Faction, but did we really want them that bad? Or rather, was a romulan faction your first choice?
I personally wanted more Federation and Klingon content. The content they have been realseasing , I love. I am also sure they would not make another "Hide and Seek" , but more past imperfects ... (if you see what I mean)
So ... me? I would have choosen more story content
since day one as well. I'm a SFC and SFC II veteran, I've also loved star trek armada, and was used to the romulans being playable in those games. I'm glad to have the chance to sit in the big chair of one of these powerful warbirds once more
The future of the game depends entirely on the presence of additional factions. Fed and Klingons shooting at each other runs out of gas very fast. Feds and Klingons and Romulans all shooting at each other makes for a lot more opportunities. I hope they add more factions sooner rather than later.
