# 1 About Legacy of Romulus
04-18-2013, 08:30 PM
So Ive heard that in order to play the Legacy of Romulus content I need to actually BUY the expansion?

Lets see where this is wrong of the developers. The reason this is wrong is because for the longest time this game has been Free to Play from lvl 1 to 50 with no content restrictions what so ever aside from stuff you can get as a paid subscriber like the Chimera Heavy Escort and the Captain's Yacht and the free retrain tokens, but not actual content like missions and other things.

Now along comes Legacy of Romulus, oh look you gotta pay for it, this game has now ceased to be Free to Play because your being denied game content unless you pay.

Good job Cryptic, very good job....how sad.

Edit: It appears I have been mistaken about the nature of this expansion, please disregard this Topic.

As far as I know LOR is Free to play, the only things that they are offering to players to buy is the two starter packs, where did you here that you had to pay for Legacy of Romulus?

You are completely wrong.

The Legacy Pack is just a bundle of C-Store goodies that is available for a lower price.

Making a Romulan character, playing free Romulan warbirds and playing Romulan missions is free. Period. This has been stated many times before by Cryptic/Branflakes.

The amount of misinformation going around is absolutely hilarious.

I heard it from a friend who must have looked at it wrong.

The Legacy of Romulus expansion is a FREE download and update to STO and anyone will be able to create a Romulan on May 21.

You will be able to level a Romulan up to max level for free just like you can with the other factions.

The Legacy Pack is a pre-order bundle of C-Store items that is being offered at a big discount prior to the launch. ALl the items (except for the titles and reman doffs) will be available individually as c-store purchases after the expansion launches, but they are not required to play the game. They are premium enhancements to the game that are there if you'd like them.

We want everyone to enjoy the new Romulan faction. If you love what you see, then you can support the game by purchasing items that you are interested in, but it is not required.

Cheers!

Reman Character creation was going to be available via the Romulan Reputation system, correct?

Correct - if you've hit top tier in the Romulan Reputation on any of your other Characters, you will be able to create a Reman character when Legacy of Romulus launches. If you purchase the legacy pack, or the Reman species after launch in the c-store you will also gain access to create a Reman.

What if you made Tier 5 ... and then deleted that character?
