# 1 Romulan Factions

I'm trying to level up the "old fashioned" way by doing story quests rather than griding PvE and I'm at the point now where I'm LC 6 and fighting Romulan factions and frankly it's taking the ****. They're stupidly overpowered. Let's look at their ships:

Warbird: Equilivent to my ship, a light Escort (tier 2). Can fire Plasma Torps which are hugely more powerful than Photon or Quntam torps.

Tactical Escort (I forget their name): Equilivent to Tier 3 Federation escorts, such as the Akira. Has the firepower of a Neg'var which is a bloody Battleship. A single Disruptor blast tears through my shields (I have over 4K of them) . If I fit regenerative shielding (Tier 3, 2.2K for shields), I loose shields and take moderate hull damage in a single volley.

D'deridex: The game classes it as a Battleship so Soverign class? At the very least a teir 4 such as the Galaxy Class. Magic "disable your ship and all its systems for 15 seconds" ray. Tractor Beam. Dirsruptors. Heavy Plasma Torps. I get disabled hit with a dirsruptor blast which strips my shield and doing moderate hull damage and then hit with a Heavy Plasma torp. Game over.

Same goes for Hirogen ships.

Now these may well be balanced against their Federation counterparts but not at where I am in relation to the game. The missions I'm undertaking require me to be in a larger, more powerful ship yet short of grinding PvE which I've tried and frankly hate, I've reached an empass.

So where am I going with this? Cyrptic, please scale missions to your rank or allow us to level up faster without having to grind PvE.
