Those are really important problems, far more important than the tholian red alert. I am glad they will be fixed.

"Q will now provide a short-cut contact to the engineer giving the anniversary episode."

Are you telling me that someone actually had a problem finding the engineers?
But, how do you expect someone like that to even finish the mission?....scrap that, how do the log-on to STO??

This "patch" just baffels the mind. How can anyone not find Q at ESD or Kronos?? It's not exactly hard to find him or the engineer at all...

My head almost imploded that this is actually something even worth taking the servers down for, I mean REALLY???

Other than that skeptisism, I agree with the sane people here. Get -- rid -- of -- the -- stupid -- balloons. They are a cool idea in a game that consists of a sane and sensible player base but, unfortunately, that game does not exist. Every game, STO being no exception, has a large percentage of morons, 'tards, and general idiots that spoil it for everyone else in any way they can. The way they can right now is with the balloon gun. Take that away from them and everyone can enjoy the game, not the grief. After all, isn't the game the reason that most of us log in?

Everyone but those who enjoy the balloons.

Turn your physics low if you don't want to see balloons. I had my setting low, and I never saw any. In fact, at first I thought my popper was broken. I now run with a 100 setting.

It's sad that Cryptic listened to the minority of whiners who couldn't figure out how to change one setting. Damn RPers.

Turn down physics and it should not draw most of the balloons. I have never been disconnected by balloon spam. Sounds like another issue.

Was hoping you'd fix it so that Q could morph us again, great fun. Glad to hear the balloons are getting fixed, love them but they're OTT right now. How anyone has a problem moving between Q and the engineer I dont understand. ESD to the academy and back is also so damn simple that anyone who plays STO should be able to do it in there sleep...

I said this in an earlier post just after the problems started and I guess I'll have to repeat it.

Why should I have to alter my settings and detract from my gameplay just to satisfy a bunch of morons who can't control a childish urge to swamp the game with idiotic balloons. My graphics are set to normal gameplay and that is how they should be able to stay. They worked perfectly well prior to the advent of the balloon gun which, I might add, serves no purpose other than to satisfy the childish desires of griefers, those 'tards who seem to revel in causing arguments in chat and attempting to fill essential rooms, like the bank, etc, with balloons.

Incidentally, this is a MMORPG. You realize that RPG stands for Role Playing Game, right? Thus, your denigration of role players is rather idiotic in itself, isn't it? Role Playing Games are designed for RP'ers.

They can't help themseves. They are so used to "nerfing" things that it has carried over to the ballons. Next week's Patch will nerf boobs.

BTW......Did I miss something? Thought Event was ending today?

I just hope that they break the servers again like last week. I have too much to do this week so not being able to play would be a great help. Fingers crossed.
