They will probably bide their time until they regain their strength again and ultimately stab everyone in the back (including the Remans) and go back to their sneaky hobbit ways.
Best thing Feds/KDF could do right now is nuke the crap out of them.
And if Cryptic were interested in having the KDF do what it would actually do in these circumstances, that would already have happened. . .or they'd have conquered that silly colony in the name of the Empire, and appropriated Romulan technology.
The whole thing disgusts me, the way it's being handled. One of the reasons I don't use the Romulan zone. That, and it's ground. I hate ground BS. I haven't done anything on Nukara, and only beamed down to Defera once for about 20 minutes. Of course, these three effing zones represent a ridiculous amount of Cryptic's time and resources. . .so in the meantime, I'm forced to stick with content that hasn't been significantly upgraded or added to for a LONG time (especially PvP). I do Klingon content (by which, I don't mean that pasty cross-faction BS that they laughably call 'KDF content'), and I do PvP. Neither of which are on Cryptic's list of priorities, seemingly.
With the rise of New Romulus, what do you think will or would happen with the Romulans as a people or an Emipre?
::: Disclaimer :::
I'm not a dev for cryptic, just a person that like reading what people have to say.
The Klingon Empire finally stops pretending it's a part of the Federation, and finally conquers those backstabbing, green-blooded petaQ'mey, and appropriates their cloaking technology into KDF military technology.
THEN we stop screwing around with the Federation and finish it off like the lame animal it is.
D'Tan and his 100 people will live in the colony, heavily guarded by FED, KDF and Tal Shiar
rest of the romulans splits into another factions - free traders, clans, etc, makes their own Colonies
Then Tal Shiar or Sela, or someone with a big gun or a big mouth comes, conquers it all and the new RSE will be born, New Romulus will not be a part of it (will join Federation some day - effectively achieving the goal to reunite with Vulcan's, the Klingons will be raiding it for a Sunday's blood bath -I'm so gonna enjoy this )..
what will happen?
wait and see
what i would like to see happen?
i wanna see Rator III and wanna play the new Romulan faction under Sela's reign
