Hello,

3 days to go to official release date and the game has lots of bugs even in the first missions (Kinjer for example needed to be done several times to finally get credit for on my side).

I strongly suggest that we either won't be charged for the game until it really works or the beta period will be extended.

Right now, Servers are down (again) and I'm stuck on the "Connecting to Logon Server", waiting for what seems an endless time.

As from my perspective this ain't no RC yet. Even the forums are creepy slow and I wonder, if - when I press submit - it will not timeout...

Extend the beta for gods sake.

He didn't use the word flawless, did he?

Like I said in beta, the game is not ready for a release and now everyone is seeing why.

The hardware is not sufficient for players to even logon and play, not to mention the software is buggy and a lot of the game mechanics do not work.

I want to see the game succeed. It just needs more work.

Don't know if that really is the point.

Not talking about a "flawless" start of it. But I expect at least to be able to log on!
Its just headstart at this time. What do you think will happen, if the regular players on Feb 2nd join the team?

They won't I guess. Because they are unable to even enter their Keys of the Retail... think about that.

All I'm saying - and I'm sure not the only one - is, that this is not even close to RC.

Anyone still remembers World of Warcrafts release and first few months? Not flawless either, tbh: far from it. Compared to that this release isn't doing too bad.

you may be right that this is not ready to release, but I cannot keep playing in beta. I must play the real game and have all my hard work saved up. I want that escort ship, dammit!

A MMO is a very complicated and big thing, it deserves patience, and if you ask me its going very well actually when comparing to other MMO's in the past or present.

Usually its make or break with MMO's/games. This depends on many things, including constant development, market value, and offcourse gameplay. I see a game that is built by veterans, and something that has been built on proven technological ideas.

Im also thinking about how there was an unexpected large amount of players playing the Beta and buying the pre-order version. Cryptic actually had to muscle in some extra servers as i recall to deal with the xtra load.
I will understand and have patience.

That's right and I agree. Patience is not the problem. I have plenty. Just don't think the game is ready for release yet. And if you track the board, you'll know why.

But some people obviously have to get personal instead of replying/discussing in a civilized manner.... thats just what StarTrek IS NOT all about....

Seriously, this game is going live on Tuesday

Do you seriously think the forums will delay it?
