Countdown on FR teaser page shows two days less. But not on the DE page.

Mistake ?

not that i really care though. i have little interest in romulus if i can't run around the capitol. i likely won't be creating a romulan unless there's a time travel mission that takes me back to the romulan home world.
What if the Iconians have technology that allows them to warp space time and they cut a deal with Sela to bring back Romulus has it was before it was destroyed provided that the Romulans serve them till death.

It would explain how a race that is now and endangered species would be able to make such qotes has " Our Shadows will block out the stars"

I'd like Romulan monster play where you buy to play as a Romulan faction with a minimal storyline, with the main fun being PVP against fleet starbases as an absurdly overpowered Scimitar protected by an attendant Romulan fleet, vs combined Starfleet/KDF defending fleet, because the situation is so dire..

...or something Iconian.

As I noted in the news thread, this is a few days after PWE's Q4 shareholder report.

So my guess is that Cryptic is under gag until PWE talks to shareholders about the big picture and this accounts for details.

I remember something back in 2012 where Stahl said we'd want to max out embassies or Romulan rep for the May update.

If it IS "monster play" I wonder if the idea isn't that maxing embassy and rep provides an unlock for a level 50 Romulan alt with a brief tutorial.

That would also explain how they address other future factions.

So we max out relations with a faction and then get to make a high end alt of that faction to "join the cause."

Its a countdown to mass dissapointment and when STO players finally wake up to the fact Cryptic have been stringing them along for months.

Its an April Fools Joke people... Thats all that March Beneath Raptor's Wings was about. You guys are going to be gutted.

I was just about to mention there being several new ship models in there...

New ships will probably be just NPC ships we'll encounter, as well as placeholders as player ships for a Romulan faction later down the road. You know, when Cryptic gets it together.
