1) BOFF XP is being boosted (well, I don't remember Minefield giving out 1,200 BOFF XP on Holodeck)
2) Pathfinding is annoying on Holodeck as well, hopefully that will be fixed (recent playthough I still lost a couple of BOFF's in the fire caves)
3) KDF skill chart, yeah, that is annoy from what I hear
4) Mail should hopefully be fixed soon (very annoying, I agree)
5) I have seen a few Plasma torps with the "all white" icon, so its a common bug right now
6) Cryptic did say that they did not want to allow people to skip cut scenes
7) Use a beam escort, its simple, works but yes does a little less DPS
8) KDF lower mission rewards, this too is happening for the Feds if you notice due to the accelerated boosting, we should hopefully see this changed later.
I think that covers some of the problems mentioned, and probably a few of my own.
But yeah, this IS a test server, so stuff is going to go wrong, if there were no bugs, I would actually be alarmed.
