What is the typical eta to server back up once you have posted these types of notes zero? 30 mins, 1 hour, 2hours, a fortnight next tuesday?

Yes.

But seriously, I handle posting patch notes, and another team handles actually doing the patch. We try to coordinate the process as best as possible to make it as seamless as possible for the players, but that's not always possible, especially on Meetings Mondays.

A tribble once bit my sister.....that is such a terrible bug is it not and to think we havent even been able to test romulans on tribble yet.

Here is a list of bugs ive encountered i already have this in the proper place on this forum im just posting this here in hopes you guys at cryptic will atleast look at this.

A) During open space enemy encounters and sometimes during missions:

1) I have found some battlecruisers usually klingon that just sit there no shields they dont attack they just sit there and let you blast them to bits.
This happens alot during open space encounters dont get me wrong i enjoy target practice but then again i dont like bugs either.

B) During Mission "Secret orders" From fed klingon war episode :

1)While approaching B'Vats' secret base my ship began to do a left hand turn it became stuck for about a minute.
I did think at first i was lagging but i was able to fire on some metreon gas succesfully while stuck in the turn it has only happened on tribble and it happened during this mission 3 times.

2) Once my away team beamed into the base i was able to get to the scientists easily however once there i encountered a klingon handler that took me 5 minutes to kill.
My team attacked him got his health to 0 but he would not die i exauhsted all my hypos during that one fight finally for no reason at all he just vanished did not die just vanished....this is the first time ive ever seen this happen.

3) Greandes what is the point you try to get the drop on an enemy patrol by tossing a grenade but your away team attacks and the enemy rushes you avoiding the grenade.

4) I decided to sit and watch the klingons in the main chamber where you plant spacial charges on the weapons for a few minutes see if there was anything amiss.
I was not detected and my away team just stood there for about 5 minutes i decided to try grenades again this time turning on passive mode.....and as soon as i turned on passive every klingon in that room attacked.
Did i mention i was standing there undetected for 5 minutes while a klingon patrol walked right by my away team?

5) I managed to fight them off somehow though it was annoying and managed to escape the base.
Well i went ahead and attacked the fleeing cruiser....but during the attack not only did the left turn problem crop up again (I started wondering if there was a NASCAR influence) but i kept getting the viewscreen of my sci BOFF informing me about stuff which shut off my engines and i could not fire.

6) Ok so i managed past the viewscreen annoyance then something new happened...my cannons stopped working yes i had plenty of energy yes my subsystems were ok yes i my weapons were not disabled....they just stopped as if they ran out of ammo or something.

Update

C) During Task Force Hipocrates:

1) Upon landing on the surface of xarantine my toon for no reason began walking in a right handed circle i did not do anything such as push the walk button she just began walking in a right circle upon beam in.

2) during the "Clipped wing" portion of this mission i encountered a Vor'Cha as ive stated before just sitting there no shields nothing just sat there and let me blast it to bits.

Well anyways i like the UI though i hope we can start testing the romulans soon

Holy mackerel... the KDF is starting to get desperate. What's next... tribbles running the transport service?

"The KDF transporter chief will once again allow players to the Academy and their ship".

HUH? Should this read:

The KDF transporter chief will once again allow players to BEAM TO the Academy and their ship.

Still no option to change back to the old UI that is live on holodeck now? That sucks

This new UI in all its "variants" is just bad, hideous. I will be taking my 800 bucks a month I spend on STO and move elsewhere if this UI and its low res, low quality and unclean look go live without the option to revert back to the old one.

Take care
