I think they would have helped you out, Sollvax, even if you weren't a subscriber.
The better question is what the 'limit's are on service for non-subs.

This SOUNDED like the most appropriate place to ask this - correct me if I am wrong.
What is up with the server?
Is there anything in the works to upgrade the tech?
There are days where the server lag is so terrible that the game is virtually unplayable... "Server not responding" has become my worst nightmare - I wake up with sweats in the night, terrified that a red "server not responding" message with a second count is at the edge of my vision... the world frozen around me, but I can still move. No matter how far I go, I am teleported back -repeatedly- to where I was standing.
In all seriousness though,
There are days where it is manageable I.E.: 2 mins of lag every 25-30 minutes.
And there are days... 2-3 mins of lag every 5 mins where I want to rage-quit my hardware (Throw computer out of 3rd floor window).
PVP, PVE, and missions are not even worth playing when the server gets like that. It's frustrating.
Especially when I have a direct wired connection to the Ethernet and no other equipment running with a 100mbps connection. It's not my end - so what gives server folks??
I am worried for the Romulan faction release because as much as I want to play as a Romulan, I don't even want to imagine how integrating so much more content and the many more players who will join STO... will affect the servers... when they can't handle current demands.
I've only ever tried twice since the game started, to get GM help...
Both times it took several days, but They did resolve both problems to my satisfaction.

I have reported someone a few weeks ago. He was afk in pvp. His char name was "dilithium farmer" (not in english). I made sure many people hit the "report" button. I also know him as a very aggressive player on his main LTS account. Many people complained about him.
A few days ago I've seen the "dilithium farmer" character again in pvp. Which means that "unlimited customer service" means that as long as you buy zen or a LTS you'll never get banned, even if you're a jerk.
On my Klingon I can't edit or change outfit,custom outfit, fleet outfit .KHG,AKHG,OMEGA . I spent lot of EC for nothing last 2 month cant do anything with outfit with Klingon . On the other side Fed problems are gone not all but most of them from patch to patch.
This is what I got from new """" reputation system you can see that your tailor for OMEGA MKXII don't have one hand to be precise this set missing RIGHT WRIST ATTACH WHY ?
I remember a few years back... When the maybe 3 times I requested GM support it took less than 20 minutes for a GM to respond and quickly resolve any issues I had then...
Now, it's been about a 2 hours at this one single mission, trying to complete it. This time I've been sitting in this mission and still no response what so ever, except from these forums.
This is the most single ill-supported game I've ever been in and it's leaving a bad taste in my mouth, which will definitely transfer over to any whom I have to speak to about this game. And that is much sadder
For me - I remember a few years back... When the maybe 3 times I requested GM support it took less than 20 minutes for a GM to respond and quickly resolve any issues I had then...
Maybe last week, I had a problem... Again! And finally found the 'answer' through chat. Today - for the past 2 and one half hours I've been sitting in this one single mission, trying to complete it. I've gotten no real response what so ever, except from the forums about my issue.
This is leaving a bad taste in my mouth, which will definitely transfer over to any whom I have to speak to about this game. And that is much sadder. It may also force me to either cancel my subscription or just let it run out...
What about the rest of you? Please answer if you read and have requested support. "Generally 'they' are suppose to read some of these threads..." Therefore the more people whom respond will give them a better indication of how "they're" doing, at least I hope...
Support in this game is atrocious.
Asking for ingame support gives you a ticket number but then no tickets show up ingame and never get answered.
The website gives you a blank page nine times out of ten leaving you to search the net and find an old forum thread with a direct email address.
Once you finally get through it takes 3 days to reply and you never get the answer you ask for.
Ie i asked why my at name (Chunter) was considered bad,the Gm kept skirting round the issue quoting the ingame email i'd received..duh! if that hadn't of been so vague i wouldn't of asked.
in the end i had to settle for a slightly different at name with no reason why after 991 days it was considered bad.
