Although I missed some people at the last convention I went to... BUT, and this is a bug BUT, even if you are right, and 51% of the folks playing are from N. America, for the rest of it, it might be inconvenient for us living in a nation not so great like the usa, that the servers are down when we have time to play. I am for example only able to play more then just 1 hour on mondays and thursdays... so today is a big **** up . And it has nothing to do with childishness, I just stated the fact, that a, you might call it "not so important european and rest of the world server" with a different patching time, woult be nice for 49% of the people playing
i dont want to fight with eanyone but 90% of americans say thay have 51% of players but thay are talking about noth america not the usa but thay dont know that canada is not the usa and there are a lot of players from hear and i think it is an insolt to all canadians to be called usa so please use the right words say the north and central americas not the usa ty and sorry if i afended some one

if u have 2 beams front and 2 aft, us should broadside

Mornin' all...

Haven't read through all the pages yet - How many pages are taken up by the standard whining about .eu vs .us on time of maintenance?

really? Canada not part of the USA? omg thank you for clearing that up... I was so confused back in the 2nd grade when I learned all 50 names of the states and Canada wasn't one of them. Where have you been all of my life?!

Seriously, beyond having to translate what you said, I don't have a clue what you're rambling about. 90% of Americans don't say they have 51% of the players because the majority of Americans could give a rats ass about this game, I would be shocked if more than 3% of Americans play STO.

Also, you really shouldn't tell people to "use the right words"... just sayin.

You forgot to mention "with one hand tied behind your back"!

Made me LOL

On a side note, does anyone know for sure if the Event Reputation system is one tab, for all events? The way I read it, it sounds as if this rep tab will be used for various events. They're not going to add a 'CE Event' rep tab, and then a 'Winter Wonderland' rep tab, etc. The projects associated with the current event will available during that particular event.

OK, so the reason I'm questioning this is - the blog said to input your shards into the rep system instead of going into your inventory. OK, all good, except that what happens if you don't get all 14 during this event period? You will have an unfinished project, which may then block the next event project?

I assume that they will allow you to cancel, but lose all your inputs, as they did for the winter event starbase projects. But then you won't have your extra shards. I'm thinking of last WW, I have a short stack of 8x10's in my inventory, which I figured would put me ahead of the game for next time if something comes up. If I had input them into a project, I assume I would be losing them now in order to free up the CE event project space.

So... sorry, about the rambling nature... bottom line is I think I'll save the shards until I know I can complete the project before actually slotting the project. That way if something happens and I don't get all 14 shards, at least I won't lose them.

^ - This.

And, as for the Europe vs. North and Central America player bases, this is exactly why Cryptic should have set up regional servers like every other MMO out there. I do not have anything against foreign players. What bothers me is that there are American players that yell at German, French, Italian, etc. players who choose to speak/type in their own language in zone chat, demanding that they speak English. On top of that, whenever someone gets a Lock Box ship and we get the announcement, the announcement is presented in their native language, as opposed to English.

Long story short, Cryptic could avoid this issue of downtime, and these arguments about player base by simply setting up servers for Europe and Africa, servers for the Americas, and servers for Asia/Oceania.

About 1 page at this time. There's an interesting USA vs Canada brawl brewing though.
