Someone must have asked Stahl if there will be playable Romulans in May - if his response was not - yes

Well you know that it's not going to happen. Heck he could even say yes like he does for the KDF then say "sorry had to put it off for later - promise it will get done - double promise!"

I'm not really sure what the May Update is anymore. I'm just trying to keep my expectations low so as not to be let down yet again.

What I do know is this: After allowing speculation to run rampant and not quashing the idea that the May Update is a playable RSE, if the May Update is not a playable RSE then the STO team will deserve all that rage and vitriol that is cast at them by the disappointed players.

They have a PR person? Because the evidence of the last few years says otherwise.

Cryptic isn't stupid; they know we want an RSE faction and they know people are setting their hopes on one for May thanks to the vague and suggestive teaser page. If May doesn't see an RSE faction, Cryptic is in for a world of hurt.

To be fair ... it's next to impossible to quash the idea anyway ... even if Dtahl confirms there will never be a Romulan Faction, a lot of people will still speculate they are secretly working on it for years ... because he kind of did it already ...

Now it's underlined. "In a way" is quite explicit.

Either way, its going to be another PR fiasco, as is par for the course at Cryptic.

Not to forget :

Dstahl: We have always had a plan for how we wanted to implement additional factions and we have polls dating back to early in the game?s life when we were looking to see which future factions players were most interested in. If and when we release a Romulan faction, you can expect that it would set the stage for how a Cardassian, Borg, or any other faction would be introduced into the game.
