As a computer admin, I am well aware of necessary downtime for maintenance, backups, software updates. I can even understand unexpected downtime when something acts up and the servers need a restart.

With Cryptic offices on the west coast and the STO server farm on the east coast, maintenance windows for software patches has to be a killer on home life. My hats tipped to'em.

I don't mind the downtime either - I look forward to the release notes when there's a patch included and it gives me some time to catch up on the forums

I do not mind a regular server maintenance as long as it is established and adhered to.

The problem is that the current server is not able to handle the volume of users making these unscheduled outages quite annoying.

There are lots of things to be fixed. If the new patches fix these things then the downtime will be making me happy.

Like, if today's patch fixes the unlockable uniforms on bridge officers and sorts out the female TOS dresses/skirts, plus repairs the Borg character/officer skills and fixes Aceton Field, it will all be worth it.

If the next patch notes just say "increased server stability and improved the regen rate of the Crystalline Entity", then not so much.

It doesn't bother me, it is expected with new releases.

Don't mind it.

Things getting fixed = good.
