Patch notes can be found here, and we expect this maintenance to only last for 4 hours. The test server may also be unavailable during this time.

Thanks for your patience and understanding,

- The Star Trek Online Team

Just imagine you would log in after the patch and all your hypos are gone, instead of them you've got a full MACO/KHG adapted ground-/space-set, or you would have got 100k more refined Dilithium... That would cause massive problems, since hypos don't drop from every enemy you defeat.
Would this optimization not be touted in the patch notes?

So what are these "stealth nerfs" going to be that you claim?

Well, once again, shard maintenance is happening at 2:00 p.m. here in Europe, to 6:00 p.m.

Would it hurt them to just Once ? in a while, do it at a time that is Not so unfair to

Europe? It's Always at a time that goes good with the West! (And I know, it's cause that's where the game originates), yet how bout us Europe Customers eh?

They are going to nerf all the healing percentages of the food no one ever uses The horror of it all no more drinking blood wine out of combat for me!

Edit: Or maybe they are converting all that foods into tacos

In the patch-notes you've got information about bug-fixes and changes to the gameplay. You won't read anything about updates to the OS of the servers, database optimization or something like that.

You should also remember that Cryptic/PWE sometimes fails to merge multiple Tribble-'Patch-Notes to the Patch-Notes for Holodeck-Server. So if there were more then one Tribble-Patch since the last Holodeck-Patch, read all the Tribble-Patch-Notes to get the complete picture.
First one half of the so called Community complains: "Give us instant access to all veteran rewards, for going lifetime.", then the other half of the same Community complains: "I've earned 1000 Day membership, I want a special reward.".
Stop complaining, if it is enough for you, you could have the "Captains Table" for the real veterans, I don't want access to another dead social zone...

because that's the time they work, and that's how it always has been.

The game was created by the West and run by them, who are controlled by the people in the east.

I kinda prefer it this way. Allows me to do something constructive with my day.

At least you know this happens on a Thursday afternoon. If they started to move it around it would be more awkward for everyone.

They should specify in the notes that they're doing that; they can't sit there and claim they have common sense and expect people to be content with it taking 4 hours to correct 4 typos.

I personally don't mind the downtime, it can be down all day, I have other things I can be doing, but I just don't see the reasoning in not letting people know they're doing larger maintenance behind the seems, else they build a stigma of, well, laziness.

Every other mmo I've played does this (the last I know).

Yes; it would increase the number of users who are inconvenienced. It's pure numbers.
