50+ and growing, actually And that's just STO. Each game has their own team.

And yes, the team is back from their break and ready to rock and roll! We should be returning to our regularly scheduled patching program next week.

Cheers,

Will the maintenance address the lack-of-sale-price problem of the Costume Sale announced here?

Neither myself nor two of my fleet mates are seeing the sale on Costumes within the "Zen store". A couple of posts in the above-referenced thread also indicate a lack of sale prices showing.

I've tried both FED and KDF sides, changing characters, logging off and on, as well as exiting and restarting the STO game client. Also, I checked both the in-game store as well as the Web-based store link provided here.

The price I see for all costumes is 550Z. I would expect the 20% off price to be 440Z with some sort of indication of a 20% discount (as is usually seen with sales). Just in case the 550Z was the sale price, I reversed the math and have trouble believing the "non-sale" price is an uneven 687.5Z.

The only store item I see on sale is the "Enterprise Era Bundle" where the description actually states "Save 20% by purchasing the bundle!"

HOW can there not be a maintenance when so many bugs has been adressed to your attention?

You have one huge one in the duty officer department, where the embassy tier 1 romulan doff which lowers cooldown on ground skills, is affecting space combat as well. Does the devs have any IDEA how this is effecting pvp? Its irresponsible, especially after I and several others made a post on this DAYS ago, only to have it closed cause the devs supposedly is aware of it and working to fix it.

Really? Is it that hard to code?!

I see nothing done. So I ask again: HOW can there not be a maintenance?

Because the devs need holidays too?

Seriously dude, these aren't robots we're talking about, these are human beings doing the best they can, we'll likely have a larger than normal patch next week to make up for no patches for the last couple of weeks.

So what?! Im a working person too, having my limited vacation and a demanding job. BUT you dont see me whining and crying that i didnt give priority to my time off when it was given to me. And besides, they should have people on and some people off in this case, to ensure the quality of the game, and that gamebreaking bugs stays out of the game.
This is the second week they postponed patches, so i guess they deserve 2 weeks wheras us commonfolk barely deserves a week. I expect better of a proffesional company!

Obvious entitlement is obvious.

Seriously, get over yourself. You have no right to think you can run the devs or the rest of staff around like rats in a cage because of issues that YOU personally are experiencing.

There isn't a patch ready, ergo, it's not being done this week. Most PWE games aren't even getting a maintenance this week, let alone a patch.

EDIT: Better yet, read the posts of the players below mine. They're better at counter-ranting than I am.

The only person I see whining and crying is you.

Patches were not postponed, they were not planned, they never are during holidays unless it's some sort of emergency.

Having 2 weeks break does not mean they are not professionals imo.

If you're that angry about a game you should take a step back, breathe deeply and move on.

Obviously, these issues are more complex than we the players realize. It's not a simple matter of changing a line in an .ini file somewhere.

And two weeks vacation is what GOOD companies offer as a perk, along with other benefits. Instead of being angry that certain people get more time off than you, get off your butt and find a GOOD job that offers similar perks.

You expect professional conduct and quality work every day of the year? Not only was it Christmas, it was New Year and such. Kids are on their winter break, and it's pretty much time to kick back and relax. Taking two weeks off does not reflect anything on their professional abilities, quite simply.

But seriously, the fact remains that the code people are working as best they can when they can. Why are there no fixes yet? Because they haven't found out the problems yet, and nothing we say or do will rush/fix that

The bugs you've mentioned, probably don't have the issues tracked down yet, or fixes haven't been formed yet You can't rush a fix to holodeck when it hasn't even been discovered yet
Was named Trek17, but still an author.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'.
