Are you happy Romulans will be able to use most of their allies tier five and tier six ships?"

    Yes About Time!
    I voted Yes, About Time, because this move takes us closer to the actual alliance that is the big part of the end-game narrative following the Iconian war. And considering that any new factions being added really have nothing to do with PvP and are merely an origin story for their respective species, It is absolutely no skin off my proverbial nose...

    Hm I would love to see feds/kdf be able to use rom ships and rom be able to use fed/kdf ships

    My thoughts.

    I can't see how Feds should have a problem with this. They've had the lions share of ship content over the years. KDF I can see more of an argument for.

    DPS wise barely anything changes. Roms already have carbon copy equivalents (CBCs, pilot ships, multi mission explorers, etc.) or an outright better version ( T6 D'D > T6 Gal) of most of the fed & kdf endgame ships. The only things that will be completely new are the Arbiter and Kurak lines with their cmdr. eng seat and the 5/3 layout. But since roms have the scimi those two also won't make much of an impact.

    T5 I was personally hoping for, T6 I'm not overly pleased about other than the fact it does mean more Admiralty cards.

    An earlier post said that now they will not have to make a rom ship for megabundles. I think this is the correct reason, because the sales of single faction bundle probably vastly outweigh the mega bundles. and with a FOURTH faction the mega bundles will be far too expensive for most casual players

    Well the major plus is i will always have enough ships for admiralty - i have about 35 t5/t6 ships on my feds and 30 on my kdf which now can be used by my roms.
    Taking into account t1 to t4 ships on those factions and shuttles as well,some of my roms will have 60+ ships just for admiralty.

    This may well give roms a big advantage over feds/kdf,in some respects -easier to get cxp and skill points,dil and ec.

    Yes, albeit only for admirality reasons.
    Dear Cryptic, can we HOPE to get some vulcan themed T6 ships this year?
  • zedbrightlander1zedbrightlander1 Member Posts: 14,501 Arc User
    As far as I can tell it just a few ships and the one I really want my Romulan Captain to be able to use in not among the few, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

    That said, I'm happy for the folks that can use Fed or Kling ships that they really want to use.

    I'd rather not have the temptation to go buy more ship slots for my Rom toons now. They were quite happy with what they already had. I also don't like it that there's a strategy for new players that simultaneously maximizes endgame ship content and minimizes factional lore. (That is, just use two toons, a Rom-Fed and a Rom-KDF.) It's like affirmative action gone bonkers :).

    Yes About Time!
    I voted: "Yes About Time!" although I won't say I'm happy about it, it just doesn't bother me, & I think it is beneficial to the Romulan mini-faction without taking anything away from the 2 main factions. I'm surprised Cryptic even allowed some tier 6 ships to be included. Even with this change though if a player doesn't like it then the player has a choice to benefit from it or not so it is on us.

    best fed now is rom-fed. get pure sro on all BOs now. get almost all the warp core ships and singularity ships... heck it is all zen store warp core ships. only T6 ships you dont get access to is the gamble box ships.

    Does that mean you can use the super fast transwarp vesta console T5 set on the Romulan Explorer Warbirds? Wish they gave old consoles to both kdf/rom.​​

    I don't care either way. My Warbirds are better than what the Feds / KDF have anyways. What they will get are unparalleled ASScard collections.

    if console is universal and can be used on any ship... then you can use it on a warbird.

    if the console is restricted to a type of ship... that remains.

    I am glad that my Romulan main can get more ships for Admiralty, but hoping my Fed mains will get access to Romulan ships like they will with the new Jem'Hadar ships!

    Wouldn't have minded if Fed and KDF characters got access to the bulk of Romulan ships in return.
  • wufangchuwufangchu Member Posts: 778 Arc User
    This certainly takes us closer to our faction Masters.. You now. The Federation, which gets every thing while the KDF starves for attention with Romulus running a close second..
    I still think they need to allow us to join the Tal Shiar..

    Yeah, for Jem'Hadar ships you have a new mastery level that let's you use it on Fed/KDF.

    Yes and No. I'm happy to have more ships for Admiralty but I'm not happy they are giving playable tier 5 and tier 6 fed/kdf ships to the Romulans
    I'd be happier if there were a quick way to assemble your admiralty cards without picking up and dropping ship after ship.

    As long as all the Ship Traits that I got to 'open' for free (I assume there were some?) because I could not use those ships don't disappear and I am made to grind them out for real!

    Didn't think to add that option but its a good idea for a poll option. Maybe next time I'll think of adding such an option if I think of it.
