you can be either a KDF romulan or a fed romulan. That answers it.
That doesn't answer it at all. It makes sense for Romulans to be able to get the Fleet benefits for whatever side they ally with, but it does not make sense for them to be limited to Foundry missions that are specifically written for other factions.
We need to be able to build Romulan Foundry missions that appear only for Romulan players, the same way we can build for Fed and KDF right now. I put that question in the Ask Cryptic: whether we'd be able to build for the faction at launch. I'm disappointed it wasn't picked while at the same time he picked a question on the Silent Enemy and didn't answer it at all. I'm certainly willing to wait for more information, but as an author who is very excited to build Romulan missions, it is a pressing concern.
Check out the latest episode of The Foundry Roundtable at StarbaseUGC
So, I am confused, a Romulan could fly a starfleet vessel but a starfleet captain cannot fly warbirds? Just wondering, at the end, I would prefer roms not being able to touch fed ships... maybe except the non-starfleet ones (same applies to KDF).
Does this mean romulan players cannot start a fleet until reaching lvl 50?

HAHA, what MASSIVE cop-out... Instead of adding a THIRD unique faction, your basically adding a mini-faction, which you must CHOOSE to ally with either FED or KDF at a certain level. Where do I remember this from? Oh right, World of Pandas (Mists of Pandaria).
No self-respecting Klingon would ever willingly help, much less, ally themselves with a Romulan. The only ones (in canon) who ever allied themselves with Romulans, were labeled traitors of the Empire.
From what i'm reading in the Ask Cryptic, your basically saying that the Romulan "faction" will be launched with a handful of new episodes that are unique to them, then at a certain point, you must choose to ally yourself with FED or KDF. Whereupon, you end up running exactly the same mission content that we've already had these past 3 years.
Actually if you read it properly you will see that he said the Romulans have their own INDEPENDANT story line. Seriously is so difficult to people to read and understand simple things instead of jumping the gun?
Feel like its not a 3rd faction at all. Just romulans joining the current 2. March beneath the raptors wings??? March into the arms of the federation or the kdf would be more accurate. Very disappointing. I don't agree at all with your reasoning for this. It's a cop out. And I hate to say that. All that quality hard work for what's not actually a 3rd faction.
You side with Feds or kdf. In pvp you fight their war. This expansion divides the romulan people not unite them. It makes them more splintered than before. So roms will fight roms under the name of kdf and fed. Awful decision.
