Your sig is epic.

And while that would make sense, it hasn't happened for Aliens & Lifers in the other factions. If they made it so, that'd be great, but... yeah. Not expecting much.

Reviewing lifetime perks, I bet this is there way of not making a vet ship, you can take the fed or kdf vet ship so romulans don't need their own...

cryptic never said a flat out No to Romulan Lib borg... those three are just what the got completely planned. the Lib borg could be part of their vet rewards talks. they might add in rom lib borg at that time.

It's highly likely considering there is an existing precedent for the KDF and FED. It is however, completely absurd that there would be not one, but two species restricted to paying customers (and not even being a zen store unlock, requiring Golld or Lifetime) when there are only two FTP options available, including one that will inevitably require Romulan Marks and Dilithium to unlock.

And here's the specific question about Lifetime rewards:

Q: (robdmc) Will gold and lifetime subscription perks get applied to the new Romulan faction?

Dstahl: We are currently reviewing all of these perks to determine which of them will be available to the Romulan faction at launch. We?ll finalize a list once we get closer to May.
So relax about the Liberated Borg Romulans. I think they're a sure thing. Cryptic just doesn't want to say so until they start making announcements.
Close. I was actually talking about question #2:
Quote:
Q: (kekvin) What races (species) will be in the Romulan faction?

Dstahl: At the launch of Legacy of Romulus there will be Romulans, Remans, and Alien-Gen hybrids. Reman species are an account unlocked reward that will be added to the New Romulus Reputation or available for purchase. Alien-Gen hybrids may only be created by Subscribers or Lifetime members. In the future we will be adding more species to the Romulan faction.
See? It specifically says "we will be adding more".
HAIL HYDRA!

What gives Cryptic? You've completely wrecked my character plan at the moment...so is this a "right now" answer or "we'll get to that soon(tm)" answer?
but when you bought LTS you knew what you get.I dont think it said anywhere you will get romulans or liberated romulans.

Consider this: how many KDF races are "paywalled"? Lib Borg(LTS), Joined Trill(Zstore), and Ferasans(Zstore). There are 5 races in KDF that are free.

that argument would be valid.... if Cryptic had planned on releasing the romulan faction at start. for all we know once may comes around a lot of those perks in the LTS/Vet reward list could be redone to include the word "romulan" in several spots.

Indeed... They didn get any added to the C-Store/Free during Season 5 like the federation did, did they?

And one for the Romulans, considering the Remans will cost marks/dilithium.

And I don't think Gold/Lifetime restricted species are in any way comparable to Zen Store Species, because, liek with the Remans, enough Dilithium grinding (plus a trip to the dilithium exchange) and voila! You have enough Zen to buy them. The other two cannot be gotten by FTP players *at all* because they require lifetime or gold. There's a bit of a difference between 'max out my dilithium for a few days, then convet to zen and buy' and 'buy lifetime or gold using dollars' Even the KDF do not have two species that are treated this way, just the liberated borg.

Not sure if this is sarcasm or not, but last time I checked, the *only* species for both fed and KDF that isn't either free or unlocked via the zen store is the Liberated Borg for both factions.
