Never played one of these MMO games before but completely addicted to STO already, and dragged friends with me.
however, I have not bought any lifetime subsciption etc as I have to say I am worried as to whether there is capacity.
From the start (for me that is - Saturday) Star Base One at Earth has been an issue - fine when you get docked but outside the station lag to the extreme. Indeed been kicked off the server several times around there.
However last night I got a "you are in a queue" message. Furthermore it was not advancing and the line was getting longer and longer.
This game has not yet even been released and it seems the servers cannot handle the load - how are you going to cope when it is released?!
I don't want to criticise and it is probably the best game I have ever seen, but I can't risk spending more on it if it is not going to be playable - there is not even a 1player practice mode you can use offline.
What is the word on this? I am sure you have thought of it.
