No compensation needed, it was a server crash and to be honest, i think we have been quite lucky compared to a lot of other MMO's in their release week.
Its annoying as hell yes, but it is also expected.
Go call your grandma, tell her you love her, have a chat for a while and the server will be back up, and you get a bigger present at next birthday / Christmas, whichever comes first Also you might learn something from the old person
I propose that when the server goes down in the middle of someone's mission, that person automatically be finished that mission when the server comes back up, with an option to redo it if they want to.
I'd be pretty annoyed if it finished the mission for me and I don't particularly want a retry option. The storyline missions atm continue from the start of the last stage which I like.
The fleet action missions like breaking the planet are just on an endless cycle and people can do them as many times as they need. If you want to get to about the same place, try entering the mission and then on the area map change the instance you're in until you find one at about the same place.
It's launch, these things are expected. Every time I got into something major in this game right now, it's always in the back of my mind that the server will crash. Frustrating yes, unexpected no.
Now, a month down the line and this is still happening, I would be up in arms.
"Its only Beta, we should expect this". Yes expect these types of comments for MONTHS. In 3 months it will be "Oh but the game is only 3 months old so of course it isnt stable or has endgame content, it will come"
