Yep, they are powerfull.

No consoles, My pure Romulan captrain+ rare romulan boffs with subrefuge+superior romulan operative, stats are:
Fleet Hafeh NO consoles : 85% defence, 17% crit, 78.8% crit severity, 11 seconds recloak timer. All Space traits.

With consoles such as borg, tachy, romulan ZP, stats are: same 85% defence, but.. 20.4% cirt,95.5% crit severity.

Recloak timer 12 secs. You can play with Reman and Romulan boffs so you can have near same stats but with 95% defence 14 seconds recloak timer and 14 seconds decloak ambush buff. So i can decloak, and after 14 seconds ambush buff recloak again, i feel like a true romluan
2010 is my join date.

The balance for Romulans getting a bit more crit is the fact that they have to fly ROMULAN SHIPS!

Sure battle cloak is probably good for pvp where you can continously cloak and decloak without killing your effectiveness, but you are still flying a ship with worse turn rate than its counterparts and significantly lower power settings at its disposal.

The ambush damage bonus is a percentage of base weapon damage added to the final damage figure. Making +100% damage (fron 5 subterfuge Boffs) only about another 300 dps. The extra crit is good for non tacs and tacs alike. More so because they don't get AP:A to boost their crit chance.

And remember you dont get 5 Boffs with +2% crit AND the +10 seconds to Ambush duration. Romulans get Superior Operative, Remans get Superior Infiltrator. No overlap.

So yes, Romulans get slightly better BO traits. But they get slightly worse ships in general. Especially considering the massive imbalance between Singularity Cores and Warp Cores (made even bigger by fleet versions).

And do sweet f-all damage in pve content (the majority of the game) because you spend half your time cloaking doing no damage.

KDF/FED players can buy Romulan BOFFs with the blue tac having superior operative and others having the normal versions, if you want to have a crit build. Then, there are the universal consoles.

but beware, because there are also efficient letheans, the humans with leadership, and other traits available, and these can help your survivability more than a crit BOFF.
LITTLE EDGE? Are u kidding me? 25% constant base damage increase plus a much much higher critd and cirth? Sure, very little
And u can't compare efficent letheans or humans with leadship, leadership has been nerf into oblivion and efficent is pretty useless, there are many better ways of got extra energy. And we don't need more energy as tactical players, we need more damage, i don't care if i can got +4/+5 energy to shield or engines, is pretty useless in my role.

Yeah, poor romulans, the Ha'feh is a JHAS with cloak...poor of them. When you have battle cloak, you don't need 55 turn rate, and with the lastest changes (and the upcomming neutronium+rcs consoles) u will have more turn rate that u will need, there is no diference in turn rate when u can do an almost instant 360.
And why u don't compare them with the KDF tactical ships? it will make you cry...

u can get boff with both (Superior opearative and superior subterfuge), so yes, they overlap. Not sure about infiltrator+operative, but at this point won't be so crazy uh?

Everyone can roll a Rommie FREE!!

You can spend millions of dollars and time upgrading you new rommie and it will keep you playing for a long time.

So as to making any changes to Romulans:

Hmmm, this seems to sound like one who is defending their own use of inappropriate builds and strategies.

There is no need to be upset by the truth.

Faster stronger better... where Vulcans with souls.

Don't worry at some point you will be able to get some of us to join you and replace those weak beings you have manning your Engi and Science stations now.

Oh stop crying...

Role a Romulan tac for your premade.

Feds shouldn't be flying escorts anyway... its not cannon.

Seriously though... the Rom ships are fairly well balanced... the JHAS is still the best escort as far as having a perfect balance of everything goes.

The -40 power IS a draw back...

Fed Science is still the best option there.

Fed Cruiser still the best option there.

Is the crit high with a full crew of Superior Boffs.... Yes it is.

Are they going to give that option to every one soon with an embassy upgrade.... hmmm lets see it will instantly get people to sink another 100-200k D into the hole... so you KNOW cryptic will be doing that shortly.

Expect 1-2 months to get an embassy upgrade. I would imagine they will also be adding Human and perhaps Suarian/Leatheans to the embassys as well.
