Looked thru the Forums before asking this (may have over-looked it)
Anyway, whats up with ESD? Logged on, beamed into ESD to grab some things, and noticed big Plasma Fires in and around the Transporter Room, all the way to Admiral Quin's Office. The Admiral himself was sitting OUTSIDE his office...
Was just curious about that
ESD has recently come under attack by rogue Klingon assault teams. I suspect a breach of Starfleet Security to be responsible, perhaps the Klingons have stolen a shipment of transwarp coils.
On a serious note, there've been a few cases of this in the past few days, it seems that Klingon players have found some new way of reaching ESD. Cryptic has a habit of "accidentally" giving new KDF ships the "Transwarp to ESD" power, instead of the proper "transwarp to Qo'noS" power whenever a new KDF ship is released. I suspect that this happened to one of the new lockbox ships.
Luckily, when it happens it's usually only in one instance. These days most social zones have mutliple instances, so you can change to get away from one that's missing NPCs.
This happened just the other day and it affected ALL INSTANCES. I was that there was a guy exploiting a bug in Quinn (I won't tell how.) There are some reports that Klingons are doing this - he was NOT KLINGON (wearing uniforms only available to the Fed chars) and was exploiting a bug in the name of showing Cryptic that he was mad that they had not fix this problem... I told him to just reporting and not ruin everyone elses fun. He refuses to stop, so I reported him to Cryptic, hopefully they will "fix" the problem with him.
Just because there is a bug, if you really love the game, don't exploit it, otherwise leave. You just confuse new players and make others mad. You may say "So what they get mad...?" or "so what is they are confused for a while...?" If this causes players to stop continuing playing STO, this can cause a critical loss of revenue and affect the future of STO.
Yes there are bugs (ALL software has bugs) that may have been there for too long, but don't make the problem worse! If I had been a new player and figured that this is the kind of people that play STO... I might not want to come back. Fortunately I have been playing for a while and have not seen to much of this behavior, so I continue.
