Agreed. I only just recently finished the rep grind on my main, and find the looming burden of rep grind to be totally dissuasive to working on an alt. If they don't redesign the rep grind to be more alt-friendly, I may not even make it to May, and if I do, I doubt I'll more than dabble with the Romulan content before moving onto another game.
I can't stand the Rep grind. If everything worth having, especially the 'customized skilled' alluded to is stuck in there, I'm going to be really disappointed. Repeat the least entertaining content in the game again and again and again and again... ugh.
I'd be surprised if there were many who wouldn't at least try it.
As for me, common sense is trying to tell me that I should 'stay calm', 'wait patiently', and even 'give it a few days after it launches to let the rush die down'. The rest of me is chanting 'Romulans! Romulans! Romulans!' and bouncing up and down in my chair.
I don't think common sense is going to get its way this time.
Exactly....patience and calm are for Vulcans. I've been waiting for this faction since open beta.
I plan on creating one. At least get one started. It will be a while before I level he or she though. Since I want to see the Fed side of the story and what is new. Plus I still have my Klingon to work with. So the Romulan will share my time with my 2nd Fed, who is a tactical.
Looking forward to see what ships you can fly. Before I make my decision on my Romulan. I seeing either a tactical or engineer. And a Reman will be my 1st officer so it will make a sweet combo.
