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.
THIS is what i am referring to all the time. The STFs and Events could link the servers, so that it would be possible to actually see people from other nations in an STF, same goes for pvp. It would mean, that you would have to choose your server / region in the beginning, but who cares? Most of the people speak english in this way, some better some worse (like me **** im tired) But who cares? It would solve lagging because of peak times and problems with patching times

well you're just not doing it right. I suggest we get the tutorial missions to include a "how to" on use of the ignore feature.

Patch notes can be found here, and we expect this maintenance to last for 5 hours and 30 minutes. The test server may also be unavailable during this time.

Thanks for your patience and understanding,

- The Star Trek Online Team
Wrong time for Maintenance. 5AM PDT is 14PM in my country. I finish with my job at 16PM and I Hardly can wait to come home to play Star trek online and because of your bad timing I have to wait until 19.30PM to login. You give to people of my country a good reason to quit.
From monday to Friday you should do your maintenance a lot before 5AM PDT.

Cryptic devs are crappy devs! They add lot of stupid features and much bugs on existing things day by day and they are not able to fix any bugs.

I'm sure they're eagerly awaiting your job application, oh great guru of all thing Devvy.

I have to agree with you there, except for maybe Yuengling Black & Tan

cryptic is on a budget and if they had a bigger budget than what they have they would have a seperate server for europe but i think that requires a seperate team to do the patches and network issues related to that server and since the europe hours are ahead of the u.s. hours so it doesnt make much sence to expand the team alot and add a extra server for europe right now. maybe when the team grows they can add the server and have a seperate patch team for europe players but not right now.

cryptic operates on do as little work as possible for maximum gains. In a given week, they do appx 15 minutes of actual real work. Putting up extra international servers would shatter all of that.
