Tholian Red Alert problems?
 
Everyday, every time I see the red alert pop up, i click to join...and again and again I am removed from the map immediately upon entering, showing the objective failed.

This happening to anyone else as well?

Yes, it the same issue with Borg Incursions were it can send you to a map that have already been finished.

It seems the system is not generating new maps for players and instead is throwing players into existing maps without any regard to the status of the map.

Actually this is starting to become a major issue. Out of all the Tau Dewa dailies, this one seems to be a huge pain to get done.

I still have a Tholian Red Alert daily from LAST WEEK on one of my fed toons. My klink got lucky last night and actually got into one (poor Tholians, I can still hear their squealing as they were blasted into oblivion), but for the most part, every time I see one pop up, it's either finished successfully or a failure, and I get drop-kicked back into sector space.

So either redo the map refresh, or revamp the map generation, but FIX THE DANG THING...

Yeah I haven't been able to do one since last weeks patch.

Would request 7 days or so in Rommie Marks in compensation, plzkthx. :D

Biggest problem is with how the system is. Instead of just having it setup for the lucky 5 who get in and either botch it or win it, make it for a time period available. For examplenred alert triggers all players have 5 mins to get into the maps, keep it as is with groups of 5. After the 5 minutes the alert disappers leaving the groups that got into it still doing it. Bit it no longer showing. This way people dont fly into them long after just one group finished it. I have hopped into a redalert 10 minutes AFTER the group i was with finished it. Got out of a mission seen it up and thought another one spawned. If they have the flag show for a set time and then disappear its like a true red alert. Get there before your enemy completes its objective and leaves. This also grants more players the ability to win it, and does not leaveus going into a red alert long after some pugs failed or completed it.

I don't seem to have to much trouble at all with other red alerts...but I've never been able to get into one of these at all since season 7 launched.

Because borg redalers are old news . romie red alerts are what all the cool kids are doing these days :-)

Unless I use a Proxy sever I can't login due to the patcher never connecting to the patch server.
