having romulans ally themselves with either KDF or FED is a great idea imo. it instantly creates mroe content for romulans just by linking them to a current faction.

at Tier 5 ( or some other tier) romulan reputation though, there should be an option to create a romulan fleet with romulan everything.

I was thinking about 3 faction pvp and while it would be fun, i don't think it would make sense for the romulans. after all they are rebuilding and already accept aid from both KDF and FED.

seriously though, allying with fed or kdf and geting access to their ships while playing a romulan faction? thats gona be awesome! can't wait to see what kind of builds will come out of this, "BOP defiants", klingon bops being used by romulans with romulan bop gear, "scimitar galaxy x". will be cool.

Which likely would be a massive disaster.
One would like to imagine that they've already thought about how this would work, and when they've got the resources to do it, they'll make it happen and it'll work.

That being said, to believe that you need to be optimistic, and my optimism (at least as far as Cryptic goes) has run dry.

It's not an explanation, it's an excuse; an excuse they wouldn't have needed with proper planning and implementation.

Dont they have the nessary equipment to make a starbase.. is just dosnt compute on my end here at all. I understand the federation and klingons are helping the romulan rebuild.
This is a question that I don't think they've asked themselves. Be sure to post it in the next 'Ask Cryptic'. I bet you wont get a reply.

It can be a "great idea" but like you mentioned as well as I did, they are currently rebuilding there "faction" so why would you allie with eather a kdf side or federation side, and having to pretty much fight your own kind in the process...

Its great to get gear from another faction and the ability to play other faction missions or even share your own missions but never the less 1+1= doesnt equal 2 for me that is in this equation.

in the ask crpytic a response said something along the lines of not wanting players to have to start from scratch with romulan starbases, and not wanting a whole bunch more little fleets that have to compete with large fleets for players but rather have new players that join the game because of this expansion join the current small fleets that already have progression.

Did they forget about having to grind through all of the Reputation Projects? ~ That's going to take away from what we're putting into fleets too, and I don't see them making that any easier for us.

yes maybe not a great idea to ally with fed or kdf for a pure romulan faction, but I like it because maybe romulans can have the best of both worlds.
