Yeah well at Vegas there might be some black and blue going on.....

Seriously though....im 99% convinced they forgot that we are part of the game.

They did. They spent more money perfecting that famous Romulan green gooey glow than actual Romulan content.

I don't get what's difficult to understand when we just ask to have the same basic stuff the other 2 factions have.
we have the top borstaqu uniform; it is a part of the Virel's salvage clothes; perhaps the devs are lazy

the difference between males and females is huge in matter of clothes. females have no choice, except to be half naked

Here I agree with you. Roms have no proper Fleet uniform of their own. The uniforms unlocked by alignment are just that. This isn't hard to grasp, yet some clearly fail to.

Incorrect. The 2nd Anniversary in February 2012 saw the release of the Odyssey-class' and Bortas-class non-C-store versions. The Fleet system was introduced in July, several months after the Odyssey and Bortas as well as their C-Store versions became available. In other words, the name was not at all "unusual"- the uniforms given to both factions were named after the factions' respective flagships.

They aren't fleet uniforms, they're faction uniforms available through fleets. This should be as easy to comprehend as Romulans not having a fleet uniform, yet somehow...

What's even worse is that, not only did the RRF not get a Unique FLEET Uniform, but they allowed us to still buy it, and then said "Oh yeah but you Rommies still can't wear it"

Not even a "Romulan Variant" of the Fed or KDF uniforms that is "Fleet exclusive" and not being worn by half the players in game and all of NPC's (in the case of Feds at least) Not even the option to wear our chosen factions Fleet Uniform, with an RRF badge/communicator ...
Yeah, it was a bit silly not to ensure Romulans were released with as many equivalents to true faction stuff as possible. We still don't have a set of endgame ground armor visuals for Romulans yet, for starters, nor a timeshuttle, nor a proper flagship class/bundle. I can understand why they wouldn't prioritize some of those things for the big release, but they should have been in the pipeline at least for the next season.

My apologies to all. I wasn't aware of the timing of the releases, so thankyou for clearing that up.

I still think though that they were Fleet Uniforms based on or influenced by, the fact that their were only 2 Fleets options in the game. But ultimately that's beside the point ...

What's even worse, for me, is that one of the only truly unique uniforms in game, that being the Reman Uniform/s, has essentially now been given to everyone, in the form of the Xindi costume.
Please ... Make it so ...!

It was a perfect opportunity, since the Oddy and Bort uniforms are from respective flagships (currently) that since the Scimitar is now our flagship
and that flagship was last seen on screen in ST Nemesis, that the uniform that we should have received as a fleet option was the Romulan Nemesis Uniform...its stylish military looking and we don't have it after a year of being alive still....

how could this be missed??

Wild guess. They have to pay royalties?

roms already have a heap of cstore uniforms, starter uniforms, and faction uniforms.
im finding it difficult to muster much sympathy for the romulans.

Then don't..just saying

We Romulans would like our stuffs....we were left out of the whole "Fleet" uniform update...so why cant we ask for something...

I still ask for Klingons to get their cloaks and stuff that are already in game for the non paying npcs....you all should just mug them, the streets on first city aren't exactly lit well.

Meaning the vast majority of Romulans should infact have the Nemesis Uniform in storage at the very least

It wouldn't make much sense for the Republic to be sporting the Tal Shiar uniform as the standard uniform since the more Republic is more akin to what Donatra was aiming for, and we would be in those while Sela's group would adopt the Tal Shiar uniform as the standard

I dunno, in the end all I do know is that its been over a year and we still haven't received on any level the most obvious uniform for Romulans to own.


(also since it was shown in Enterprise toward the end of the series it stands to reason that the Nemesis Uniform is the defacto uniform that they keep falling back to after they decide the other ones weren't working)

I agree with you. Also, it would be very nice for those of us who RP, to have a very up to date and to some degree, intimidating uniform. The Nemesis uniform is striking, yet elegant in its simplicity. It is also modern looking and form fitting. For those of us who role-play in endgame, and don't recognize the Abrams verse and barely Nemesis, something that doesn't look like a patch work quilt-trying-too-hard uniform would be nice.

I am grateful to the devs for introducing the Romulan faction. I almost even like the uniforms, but like every other faction uniform, the basic sets just add too many lines, creases, overlaps and they get too complicated where they should scale back and be more simple. A military uniform should be simple and sharp, but clearly indicate to which organization you belong.

I think with the Nemesis uniform we can accomplish these things in one simple outfit.
