High loading times

I've been playing star trek for just over a month and found that the loading times for maps and levels are incredibly high at times compared with World of ******** (the MMOG i played prior to STO), i was wondering if this has something to with my connection (which is good) or if others players are having this problems,

Probably not... You see, when you install WoW, you install everything, when you install STO, you don't install everything, hence the long load times as you're doing what's called "On Demand Patching". I honestly don't have a single clue as to why this was done, but I'm sure it has something to do with the F2P push. Since that's the case, we all have to experience it from time to time, I hope you're able to move past this and enjoy this game.

Good hunting ;)

another point would be disk fragmentation especially since sto loads new stuff every play
