- Cryptic has said the Romulan faction probably won't have Hirogen, but I figured I'd include them just in case.
- additional ships can be created to fill the roles of dedicated Cruisers, Escorts, and Science Vessels
- ranks can be compressed if Romulan faction isn't full 0-50 levels
- Romulan ships will all have Reman skins
It would be great if they could do what they should have done at launch, and that is divorce rank from level. At any rate, the wind is out of my sails on the Romulan faction question; the whole idea of a mini-faction just doesn't sit well with me.
What I heard was "we would like to do it", maybe you read something I didn't
I think what everyone is mainly focused on is it only being a new skin with no story aka "sub faction" in oppose to new content.
Me I just want a romulan carrier with cloak so I can send the fighters in and be afk cloaked watching a movie while grinding stf
I never cared about the so-called story since it doesn't have any impact on gameplay; when I play sto I am the story.
I only ask for everything, I want to have a story I can impact and that impacts the game.
If it's just a poor cutscene with some random text.. well I am too old for that
But ofc it would need a romulan homeworld and the classic uniforms for starters - it's easy to imagine them making the romulan faction a level 50 unlock so that they don't have to build 5 tiers of ships though : /
Cryptic has essentially confirmed that they'll be releasing a playable Romulan Star Empire faction in the near-future.
Could you provide some links to this confirmed info?
Everything I have read (Dev posts, Stahls Ask Cryptic&Raptr Q&A), listened to, etc, have shown them bouncing around the idea of a playable Romulan in the KDf/Federation.
