Battle cloaks require planning and balance. So, no, I don't expect them on every Romulan ship.

a battle cloak is not the greatest thing in the world and cloaking at the wrong time can make you go BOOM!

If they're going to match the feel of Romulans for the series and movies.. Battle cloak on everything. and a romulan enhanced battlecloak will be a very scary thing as it will not only be able to fire beams/cannons while cloaked, it will still have shields.

Feds worried about KDF.. HA! Romulans a lot more unhappy with the Federation the the KDF.

PvP against romulans should be ugly.

This. Who knows though since this is Cryptic we are talking about. Cryptic design decisions have a tendency to be cryptic at times.

Yeah, I share some of the viewpoints that some have discussed here, Iam kinda basing what ive seen npcs do thus far in game and also what romulan ships are known for. My view, is that possibly a good chunk of the romulan ships we will be able to pilot will have battlecloaks. Itll give them an edge, and possibly a more uniqueness compared to the kdf side. Iam not going to go that far and saying having a battlecloaks gives you a "I win" notion but never the less I do feel that romulan ships should have a battlecloak on it.

D'Deridex on the other hand... its hard to say yes to it having a battlecloak, if it does great, its not "to me" going to be game breaking, but if it doesnt and is just equiped due to the power core it has "non combat cloak" thats fine as well.

Practically every Romulan ship should be able to battlecloak, the balancing factor can easily be a longer cooldown in battle based on the size of ship you're in.

On all ships? Maybe. The video and web page kind of suggest that the Romulans are only getting one type of ship, the warbird class of ships. And the graphic only shows four ships. It looks like, not counting whatever they release on the c-store, that romulans are only getting a handful of ships.

However, I'd put my money on Battlecloaks being BROKEN by the May update, for everyone. That seems like the type of coding error that Cryptic would mistakenly allow to go live.
