Newbie here (insert vile klingon obsenities)

Wondering if you have to keep patching the game anytime you have to play it?

I have wasted 2 days of my life waiting for the game to patch liturally.

Any comments are welcome.

MMOs are living, breathing games. That means that yes, you pretty much have to update it every time you load the game. I actually take that into account and start the upgrade process long before I intend to actually play.

At STO, we do the bulk of our updates on Thursday. Today just so happens to be Thursday.

well.... at least you guys know that your patchnotes are disappointingly short.

patchnotes: look more like ... maybe 3 Devs bothered to work this week.

i know, i know not everybody is fixing stuff all the time and working on the next big thing on the schedule instead, but maybe exactly that is the problem.

MMOs are by nature "work in progress" games, yet the patchnotes do not feel like any decent progress is made.
And i get that feeling regularly because i hate to say it the length of last weeks patchnotes are the exception, these 4 liners are a lot more common.

I want to see Patchnotes like last weeks ...lets just say, more often?

There are too many bugs still left after Season 6 + 7 to let any week go by with 4 liner Patchnotes.
I don't expect the whole team to work on bugfixing and polish... but lets try to make 15 liner Patchnotes more often hmm?

One can argue that if it works properly for some, the problem must be user-based. Otherwise it would impact everyone.
No, you can't argue that. You said it right there: it works properly for some. You must be among the oh-so-lucky ones who never get the same bugs as everyone else. Good for you.

I for one get every single bug listed there on a daily basis --some have been like that for A YEAR now-- and I am positively sure that the problem is not on my end or "user-based", since several of my friends and fleet mates have those exact same problems, not to mention all the people complaining about it everyday in zone chat.

So just because it doesn't affect YOU doesn't mean it's not a real game-based issue.

I agree with this.

If they keep up the feature creep without actually fixing the existing ones their program will, sooner or later, be irreparably messed up.
It's something that has killed quite a few MMOs.
