I am starting to agree that this looks and sounds like the best game however, if you can't play it what good is it? If this continues I'm going to call my CC and complain and demand a refund on this. I'll just go back to my old Star Trek Armada II which works just fine.
As someone that works 6 days a week to make endsmeat I have little spare time. When I get home from work at 1 am I get a message saying the server will go down at 3am for maintenance. When I wake up the server crashes and I can't play.
Am I really working this hard to be a beta fool and pay for it? I agree with others that a free month is in order. Right now I am in my free month and I can't even play the game!
