let me say I am not surprised to see this. I know after one major content launch...I think season 1....this same issue happened randomly. I have not logged in yet...I am still patching but I was 100% certain there would be some issues. This is exactly what the dev's have done with this game from the beginning. Put stuff out that wasn't ready to be put out. The reason or cause is unknown to the casual player. Me and my peeps think that their must be a bonus somewhere for them if the game fails. However there was a lot of nice talk about stopping that kind of deal and putting out a quality product etc. etc.
That was nice of you to tell us you were aware of it and then eat all the flaming as a result. I love the "News" tab on the launch window thing:
"Map Transfer Freeze", "Season 3: Genesis Available Now" and please vote for us for some players choice awards. Like in between random map transfer freezes, I will go vote. I think I encountered that same thing on tribble as well like someone had said.
Regardless I am sticking around mostly cuz I bought a lifetime sub and I still enjoy the game after you fix all the crap you screw up.
Season 4 - "No Bugs". - make that your mantra for the next one.
Why the indignit attitude? Everybody knew there would be issues after the new patch. Hell, I'm avoiding any real playtime for the next few days specifically because of it. Just report the problem and move on. Belligerent attitudes don't make them work faster.
