At least you can login and play. THere is another game that is going FTP in February, but they are supposedly letting people go FTP right now. I downloaded it (a huge game) and was all set to login...and the "Play" button doesn't work.
I even went through all of their troubleshooting stuff to the point of filing a ticket. I sent them all the data they asked for and they come back a day later and say it's a connection issue on my end. I follow all their instructions again. I even run off another internet connection I have available to me and still no dice.
All this trouble...and I've not even logged in a single time yet. Needless to say, it's not looking good for this other game.
That's too bad, I know the game you are referring to and it's a good one.
As far as STO goes, I can rarely play for more than an hour or so at a time before my game just CTD without warning. It's to the point I can almost preempt it and restart my entire game client before it happens. Still very frustrating, along with all the other bugs still present from when I quit a couple years ago. It would be really nice if the patch notes for this game had some actual repair for holes that have existed for possibly years now. I mean, 5 items? It would be funny if it weren't so sad.
