Also various other issues now and then.
I'd estimate there's one day with serious problems per month on average.

Reading this thread is almost as entertaining as actually playing the game. So much nerdrage. You'd think we sto players lack... oh **** what do they call it again? Oh yeah, LIVES. In which case there are always reruns, folks.

Ok so the problems are stopping people from accessing launcher, logging in etc

Here is solution

You need to join a VPN or virtual private network

A virtual private network will allow you to route all of your incoming outgoing internet traffic through a server of your choice anywhere in the world.

Now give the fact that this issue is not an issue in certain parts of the world
(west coast USA for example)

You can connect to a server there or anywhere else until you get a working connection (Worked for me in about 2 minutes)

Anyway I found a website that sets all this up for you

http://billing.purevpn.com/aff.php?aff=1360

it is possible to get a trial account the link is in the bottom right hand corner of the target page

You can google search purevpn if you are not comfortable clicking the link thats fine but please use my referal code. code 1360 or if it asks for my email Aj_backontop@btinternet.com


Once signed up for your account trial or otherwise should take less thna 5 mins to get logged in to STO

LIVE LONG AND PROSPER

So any long time players have any advice (preferably ones that are still right in the head).
As always, you should just decide for yourself; but overall, the game server has been pretty stable since about a week after Season 7 launched (major updates always cause some issues for any MMO) up until yesterday. Occasionally, they have run 30 minutes to an hour beyond the weekly announced maintenance windows; but once it's up, it usually stays up.

Ok thanks. I will give it another month or so and decide after I have had more time to see how it goes. I have been a Trekie since I was a kid. I probably would have did cosplay and went to conventions if I had the means lol. I have been waiting for a game like this and finally found it. I would really like to get as much out of it as I can.
