So there I am about to change system and I get a DC, upon logging back in I see this in the launcher....
Star Trek is currently blah blah.....................2 Hours...
Please just announce it in game and let us know whats happening, I don't mind the fact you are trying to fix, debug, smooth stuff. ......... but the communication is dire and you really could do much better (Woo sound like a teacher..).
It doesn't take much to placate a good majority of the player base with simple and timely messages about whats happening. Posting emergency maintenance on the Forums is no good for those of us in game.
No kinding, I was loading a ground map when I got booted with an error message saying the map crash or something. Kept on trying for like 15min before i got back in and start doing the mission to get booted again 5min later. I figure it was just another hiccup or something...till it keep on failing to connect at the logging server.
I'm sure it would have been announced, if it was planned. The average downtime for the 6 or so weekend crashes seemed to be roughly 2 hours. I'm interested to see if there is GM and Dev interaction with the community when the non-headstarters begin to join the game.
I guess the point is we dont know if it's a crash or a "maintenance".
Emergency maintenance isent planed... its done cause it crashed... if you look on top there are several difrent versions of the msg... a couple is planned and some are cause of crashes.... Emergency normally meens in any place in the world that something went completely wrong... there is a reason its called emergency..
also they been trying to get out message about planned ones so... this was a crash... they can say what they want to calm you lot down but there's a reason for the difrent msgs
