I started way too many sentences with 'and' there, my old english teacher would probably have a fit lol.

Edit- I know I've been perhaps a little unfair at times with my criticism, so I just want to clarify: Overall, I'm ecstatic about the idea of being able to play as a romulan, and God knows I'm still excited about it. It's just a couple of little things, like a lack of fleets and access to other factions ships that's ruining it a bit for me. I'll still play it, it's just soured by knowing it could be so much better with a few simple changes.

Any chance you could respond in real-time and then just update your reserved thread as you post? That way it functions as an archive (as you intend) while letting people engaged in the ongoing discussion see your posts as they appear.

It makes perfect sense and I thank you for it.

Sure. I'll start doing that.

I'm glad that Romulans will be able to crew their ships with Romulan BOffs and Doffs, at least. Not so happy about Feds/KDF also getting Romulan crews.

Still don't like the alliance thing, although at least Romulans will be able to team with each other for neutral missions, I guess? But I'm not silly enough to believe it'll be scrapped in a month. I still think it ultimately makes Romulans just Fed or KDF characters, especially with the ship sharing, and in such a way that essentially prevents the "faction" from being further fleshed out; I just can't see any MMO company forcing players out of their current fleets to do so.


All in all, I'm still convinced this "faction" was designed with the Z-store foremost in mind, which is ultimately why I dislike f2p systems.

Some people are happy with it, some aren't. We are listening and considering the feedback. We'll consider changes as we have in the past. If at the end of the day you decide that you just don't like our decisions, then all I can say is that I'm sorry.
Indeed I never meant to imply that you said those words. You have said similar in the past, but I just didn't know how to do a quote within a quote, lol.

That being said, the idea of "If you don't like it, don't play it" suggests an end to the conversation. That's the feeling I get when I hear a developer say that phrase. I think it's fair to suggest that the systems within STO are much more often in a state of continual development (ie KDF) than in other games. To me, I think this means an open dialogue with the players is much more important than other games, and is perhaps a unique feature of STO.

It's a pet peeve of mine when I hear someone suggest that the discussion isn't worth having. If anything, I think you guys can see just how many people are passionate about the faction and the things we feel it's lacking, or how different it is to what we were hoping for.

How is 40 levels of Romulan-specific content, Romulan/Reman captains, unique uniforms and 50 levels of unique ships the same as what you said?

What you describe is nowhere nears the same as what we are getting. My Romulans may never deal with their allies at all, unless I decide to do so at endgame. That, to me, is a true faction.

The ship in that screen is the ship that I upgraded to after joining the Republic Fleet and reaching level 11. It is exclusive to the Romulan Republic. There will be a blog later that goes over the ships and details. There will be a variety of Rom Republic ships at end game, it isn't just D'Deridex only. Most of the ships you fly in the Republic will have End Game versions.
