The Klingons fear a Romulan empire...They fear the Star Empire will achieve everything they could never, they fear The Romulans to be the equals to the foolish Federation....and The Federation just fears us.

"My theory is that they'll put up one of those Romulan "Raptor" statues in ESD and the First City throughout the month of March. Done and done. "

Couple that with a new ./emote march and we're set to go!

Of course they will put the statues in ESD, and the first city....It's what Romulans do to show the land as been conquered in the name of the Star Empire.

In the past DStahl has been very specific about what it would take to get the KDF up to par, and it has matched what the players were asking for. SO if that's changed, it's in character with Stahl, but it won't do to try and shift that on the players saying the company had a different idea. The company is keenly aware of what's expected here. And has been since Beta. Most definitely since Season 1's fiasco.

Then perhaps both sides have been a bit to grandiose in their expectations...

The only way the KDF will be able to "catch up" to the Feds, is if Cryptic Stops Adding Stuff, to the Federation side of the game.

Something that in all likelihood, is never going to happen.

Not in the slightest. All the KDF wants is to be able to level from 1 to 50. There's a gap in that. Fix the gap, and let people choose Fed or KDF at the beginning and go from there. That's not grandiose. That's pretty average expecation.

That's not true at all. Everything about the end-game has been multi-faction playable for ages now. Each new piece of the game added, be it an STF, the DOFF system, or starbases has been playable by both factions. That's already caught up. The only thing that needs attention is the gap that has caused them to make KDF 20 to 50 when Fed is 1 to 50. It's a small hole that needs some filling in. That's it. And that doesn't require stopping creation of Fed stuff or adding stuff. It never has. The end-game, which is where a lot of the new stuff added comes into play, has been fine for the KDF for quite some time. The part the KDF wants completed is the journey to the end-game.

On this, we're in agreement. But that's because I feel the person in charge of this project keeps saying "I like the KDF. I want to complete it." And then does the exact opposite. He did this before he went to Zynga. He does this now.

Based on their track record, this isn't the development team you want creating a new third playable faction. Is it?

It has been heavily hinted at a "new" Romulan faction.

I really want it, badly!

Although I also remember that Cryptic, in the past, have been very good at hinting stuff, but then pulling the rug out from under our feet afterwards.

We can only hope it is indeed true

Most likely it'll be a subfaction, with you allying with either the Federation or the KDF and using their content. Pretty much what Dstahl has said about the possibility of a Romulan faction in the past.

We'll probably get a few Romulan only missions and the rest will involve playing a factions existing content.

Not surprising really when you think about it.

You've got faction specific lockboxes (Krenn and Wells for example), starbases, doffs (of which there are a huge amount now), rep system, doff assignments, fleet actions etc, boffs, c-store equipment.

That's an awful lot of content.

Um, actually... yes. The curent Status of the KDF is acceptable to me. A romulan faction with a third of what the KDF has now would be ok to me.
