Thus all the current KDF Mission could be reformatted into the first 20-30 level of KDF play without needing to add more new Missions.
He said ~40 for Romulans, and late 30s/early 40s for Fed/KDF. He said that of course will vary depending DOFFing, patrols, Mirror, etc, etc, etc - I mean, as it stands now, you can hit 50 long before getting to the Vault (listed as 34 for a Fed or 36 for KDF).

Klingon War is 1-19
Romulan Mystery is 20+


Federation War is 20-30
Fek'Ihri is 31-33
Romulan Mystery is 34+


It's definitely complicated with how they'll fudge the KDF story to get there. I mean, seriously, look at the Federation War story arc...er...

Bringing Down the House and The House Always Wins - well, they're not Fed War. If anything, they'd be a good transition over into the "Romulan Mystery" arc, eh?

Second Star to the Right, Straight on 'til Morning and Keep Your Enemies Closer fit in with the Fed War - but the next mission is Temporal Ambassador. WTF? That lends itself over to the "Romulan Mystery" as well.

Then it's five episodes into the Devidian story arc. Er, so all in all - there wasn't much Federation War going on there was there?

You've got the four episodes for the Fek'Ihri Return - which, would those even be possible if you had not already done the first two House missions and gotten in good with Worf?

Perhaps a little bit of rewrite there - so it's something like the following:

Federation War
new episodes
Second Star to the Right, Straight on 'til Morning
Keep Your Enemies Closer
new episodes
Skirmish
Spin the Wheel
What Lies Beneath
Everything Old is New
Night of the Comet
new episodes

Fek'Ihri Return
Blood of the Empire
Destiny
Afterlife
The Gates of Gre'thor

Romulan Mystery
Bringing Down the House
The House Always Wins
new episodes
Temporal Ambassador
new episodes
The Vault

Basically something along the lines of the Federation War taking place 1-16, Fek'Ihri Return taking place 17-20, and Romulan Mystery starting at 21 or so? Basically keeping that Temporal Ambassador episode at 25?

Or perhaps the Fed War being shorter, Fek'Ihri Return being earlier, and thus starting Romulan Mystery earlire...?

try planetside 2 tribesascend and ghost recon online, rather that funding the acme shaftme machine that ea is to the point that Riccitiello has had to resign due to ea infuriating everyone.
Or, click on All Games at the top of this page, and then Blacklight: Retribution. It's a pretty decent lobby-based F2P shooter, published by PWE, and written by Zombie Studios.

I don't think it's a wise idea to give Romulan players access to it's allies ships, especially given the whole singularity core mechanic they are already going to be receiving.

There is a benefit to keeping ships exclusive to certain factions, regardless of alliance, having both a fed and kdf character at max level is an example of this currently, once you dilute the exclusives of a faction not only are you removing a prime motivator for picking up an alt, it also biases the game itself towards one race.

If we are to swallow the pill that Romulans are indeed a full faction and not just Klingons or Federation characters with an extended tutorial and story, then at the very least they need to be bound by some of the rules the existing factions have had to put up with since launch.

I can understand Cryptic's motivation here, Cstore sales from Romulan players purchasing ships of other factions will generate revenue. This revenue will come at a cost however as the Romulan faction will become artificially inflated with players, and won't actually reflect the playerbase as a whole.

The Romulan faction is becoming the golden child, given benefits the other players that have dedicated 3 plus years won't be receiving, and that's just not cool.

You want us to treat this as a full faction Cryptic, you need to treat it as a full faction too, obeying the restrictions the original factions have lived with from the start, or removing all of the restrictions entirely.

Roms do not get singularity cores.Rom ships do. I seriously doubt a Rom will be able to put a singularity core in a Fed or KDF ship. Getting to use the singularity core is one of the bonuses for using a Rom ship.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

Correct. The core slot is on the ship, not the character, and they're limited by ship class in the same way cannons and certain consoles are.
