After all the posts i've read, my guts tell me it S6 AND CP to ZEN conversion. Don't see the latter taking too long as Cryptic has been sounding the battle horns about the conversion for a while now. Also, the actual conversion process is probably replacing all instances of CP (graphically and in the code) to ZEN and a simple mathematical equation to convert on a 1=1.25 scale.

As far as S6, guts tell me they had enough info from Tribble Test Weekend to get most of the major bugs worked out... logically speaking 7 hours is really an aggressive estimate...

So is the betting pool open on how long the downtime will really last? LOL.

I wouldn't rule it out quite yet. People are forgetting that some of the servers between these two games are linked (account, mail, and who knows what else). All of the involved servers and databases obviously have to be down for the currency conversion and account updates. If they do release season 6 tomorrow, they would still have to keep the Champions servers offline until the currency conversion was done and tested. Cryptic might still decide to release season 6 tomorrow, their business day hasn't ended yet.

Can someone tell me is the launcher crash problem has been fixed?

Last time I tried to get on the game didn't launch after "Engage" and then F'd up my wireless and I had to go to Best Buy to fix it...

There's the problem... you went to Best Buy.

Only problem I've seen (and it's really more of a minor nuisance) is that the launcher keeps patching the same 408kb of data since last pre-patch...

Can a Dev please come on here and put us out of our misery and tell us if this is a season 6 launch or not? This is too much suspense and with no patch notes it's driving me nuts! Nuts I Tell You... NUTS!!!!

Please say this is going to be worth the wait. Not that it will hurt me too much. Food bank day. But letting us get started on the starbases would be nice, if for no other reason than our banks overfloweth :-D

Has Cryptic ever released a season without some initial acknowledgement (i.e., release or patch notes)? Would be interesting to know.

Why the crack to Best Buy? My local one has been beyond helpful and kind.

For myself adn others the launcher just dissapears and nothing happens. This ontop of the game constantly crashing after a few minutes has made STO unplayable for me...
