Ive been reading alot of posts since the announcement of the new romulan faction and are people happy?

For the most part no and why?

Complaints, complaints and yes more complaints

And what about mission what about the KDF what about the feds what about all the little things that dont really matter but your gonna mention it just so you can gripe about it.

There is more but that covers alot of what ive been reading

Common people were getting the long awaited romulan faction dont over think this and enjoy the momment

Romulan Faction, level 1 KDF, UI looks awesome, new trait/advanced trait system sounds intriguing...

Color me thrilled. The only reason I can see to complain about Legacy is....well, I got nothing.

I guess I wont truly be happy until the moment I get to fly a proper Romulan ship with a ungodly smexy hot Romulan chick captain. Then I will likely soil my pants...

Already loaded up on about 30k in Zen. You just know there is going to be some good ol' gouging in the shop....

Y'know, I was one of those people who used to pay to play (so I've been here for at least a decent amount of time) and I always wanted to see a Romulan faction... but I dont see it working out, it's going to be even worse than when the Klingon faction was introduced.

The screenshots and preview show that the Romulan faction will probably only have one race (romulans), though it's possible remans will be available as well. You cant create an entire faction based on a single race.

Where are the Hirogen? We know they're allied with the romulans. Where are the other races? Surely you could add in Lyrans or Mirak or some other romulan-centric species to fill out the ranks. People want OPTIONS, and I'm not seeing them here.


Beyond that, I cant see an entire shipline being available for the Romulan faction. The preview says we'll get "warbirds", and so far as we know the entire romulan empire only has two classes of military ship - birds of prey and warbirds. That might equal out to escort/battlecruiser or something similar, but where's the science ships? What kind of unique ships will the Romulans have to seperate them from the other factions? Likely nothing.

So far, in-game, there are only two romulan bird of prey ship models - the old style and new style - then we have the mo'gai escort and the d'deridex warbird. It's possible you could throw the scimitar in there, but I highly doubt it will be available considering its rarity. Still, that only leaves you with five ship models at the most - are the devs really prepared to come up with an entire shipline beyond that?

A full shipline, at minimum, consists of 16 vessels: 5 ranks for each of the basic ship types (escort, cruiser, and science) and one starter ship. That's the bare minimum. Right now we've barely got enough ships in-game for a third of that.



Sorry to be skeptical, but unless the cryptic devs can pull a miracle out of their collective backsides this is just going to be another KDF for the first year or two, and worse than the KDF when first released.

I have been waiting for a Romulan faction since launch.

I am extremely happy with how it is turning out

a) i m happy to wait for romulans, so that they are a full faction at release, unlike thekdf.

b) romulans should not be a club of many races, its just not IP appropriate.

c) I don't mind minor skin variations and upgrading flying d'deridex, Warbirds, Scimitas etc. since these are the only ships we have seen. Just like the oddy n co, why not have three differnet bridge and consoles layouts per skin?

all in all i m still doing my happy dance

@telbasta7386 - There are many ships in various classes available to them methinks - not just two. It depends how much into soft cannon they go and of course how much artistic license they have from CBS.
