Do we really have to go through this every maintenance? So for the new people, again, The scheduled downtimes are done when statistics show the least amount of players online in game FROM AROUND THE WORLD if it's done at 6am PST, that's 2pm GMT. Last time I checked, 2pm is smack in the middle of a work day for most people and not exactly considered prime time

You are going to have to pay money for the better versions anyways, or did you not read the blog? The free ships are 9 console weaker versions of the soon to be released c-store ships, the only thing you are getting from the free ships are the core and additional deflector.

If you have come to the forums, to complain about the AFK penalty, than it is WAI.

Just wanted to throw out there that I appreciate you guys taking some time to give us a heads up on this. Communication does not seem to have been your strong suit in the past, but it's nice to see that we're being kept more in the loop about this.

Also, I was finally able to get into the game and try out the new FE; I really enjoyed it and did not experience any of the bugs that I have heard about- I will have to keep an eye out for them in my next few runs through. Thanks for the great mission and good luck quashing those bugs!

All I have to do to get a free Science Destroyer ship:

1) Enjoy an amazingly epic Feature Episode with Tuvok!

2) Spend TWO MINUTES chasing mini-Qs each day for 15 out of 28 days.


Why would I complain??? Why do any of you complain?

BE APPRECIATIVE!!! We get an epic ship for FREE, and all it takes is the above - which is FUN!!! We get Dilithium as a reward choice every time we do the little "Party Patrol" mission.

Dont listen to the naysayers devs. The MAJORITY of players enjoy all of the game and dont believe in "grinding". We do rep content and runs and we keep things varied so we dont have to spend weeks doing the same exact thing. We get rewards as they come without going crazy grinding for the "bestest coolest im leet" rewards.

The "vocal minority" might seem like a majority on forums, but they are hardly that. Send a questionnaire to every account holder and you will see the real majority have no problem with the anniversary event.

Some bugs? Thats normal. Server shutdown? Sucks - but its not forever.

Only problem I had was not being able to get the Fed Retrofit on my Rom rnk9 and the raptor retrofit on my klink rnk 13. Should have been able to get a requisition box or something until we could open it. But, some free stuff is better than nothing at all.

We get an amazingly fun and varied epic game with sooo much to see and do - and its FREE!!!! And people complain sooooo much!!!

Notice how the complainers are the players that A)play wayyyyyyyyy too much each day , b) play wayyyyyyy too many characters and sabotage their own games by forcing themselves to repeat the same content in a mad rush to endgame and c) players that are ALWAYS rushing to endgame skipping content/dialog/etc... just to feel powerful. too stubborn to realize if you can complain about something soooooooo minor like the anniversary "grind" for a free ship - you shouldnt be playing STO and/or you need to take a break asap!

Cheers to STO devs for a great anniversary patch. I know that by the time i log on tomorrow Ill be able to finish the featured episode mission i started Salute!

I will say this- I am not thrilled with the idea of grinding for the ship; however, the Q daily mission is not nearly as bad/difficult as I was expecting (in fact I kind of enjoyed it), and the ship featured in the FE performed quite differently than what I anticipated. I'm not sure I like it enough to throw actual money at it, but I will be pursuing it if only to play around with it.

Update! We're conducting our final checks now before opening the server. Additionally, We were able to patch Holodeck during the outage. At this time, this will replace our planned morning maintenance. We'll let you know if this changes.

Notes can be read here: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh....php?t=1002401

I'll post and resolve the thread as soon as we open it back up (10-12 min or so).

Cheers,
