Which is a very GOOD thing. The more money Cryptic gets the more CONTENT they can provide, the more ships they create, the more uniforms they release, the new FACTION they just announced!!!

Cryptic getting more money from players enables this game to survive and grow!!!

you never know. after all the main reason KDF has a low population is the level limit right now. if Klingons could be made from the start since F2P then they might have a higher population.


and a lot of people prefer rommies to feds.

i bet in autumn we will see the factions populated like this:
1 - FED --50%
2 - Romulans --30% or more
3 - KDF -- 20% or less

I would say you would lose that bet.

When they made the poll back before when they were still making the game the KDF won and that is part of why we have a KDF faction, even if Romulans might not be in the same situation (PvP only faction, grind leveling) I dont think they will stand up to 30%, to start a lot of people are likely to roll a Rommy but when that new faction smell wears off they go back to Fed because they have their main over there or because they are more invested (in money, Pay Ships and Lock Box ships), after all we can start a KDF after a while and KDF is certainly not in the current state because people cannot start at lv. 1.

No, KDF is on the current state because there is nothing to play or at least we get more buck on Fed missions as far content go.

Things will depend a lot on what Cryptic does.

It would seem like it, but afraid not. Even at the very start of STO, when the Klingon population was at it's peek, it still wasn't even half of the Federation population.

And at that same time around launch, there was a poll which faction players would play, and included Romulans, and the Romulans was half as favored as the KDF. That's why it took Cryptic this long to finally get around to a Romulan faction.

That's why I said in the long-run, the Romulan population will drop. Because after people have exhausted the Romulan content and back at endgame, many players would favor maintaining their Federation characters and avoid the excessive grinding to catch up.

The only ones who remain after two months, are the True Romulan playerbase.

I admire the enthusiasm, but I see the population spread more like this by August:

73% Federation
14% KDF
13% Romulan


Right now we know KDF have an 18% of the STO population, since the Devs threw that number multiple times. 1 or 2% of the KDF playerbase will become part of the Romulan playerbase. While the Federation will lose maybe 5% their total playerbase.
