When this game first came out I had hardly any loading issue, now I find myself sitting for 10 to 20 min on some sectors and also when starting up the game.
I'm sorry to say that is going to be a on going issue I don't expect a lot of people to stick with this game. I know it's still new but these are issues the company should be fixing right away.
Also I have to say lowering my video setting really should not be a option. They put all these nice things in the game and now I can't enjoy them. That's not a option in my book.
I play wow and have my settings almost at max and have very few lag issues unless in areas where there are many players and still I can enjoy this game. STO I have yet to enjoy in the last 4 days as I have not been able to get into the damn game because of the 10 to 20 min loading issue. Come on Cryptic get this issue fixed.
