The server is down, and it's all my fault. I brought my friend into this game, knowing his effect on computers. I think he has some sort of electro-magnetic field that causes computer systems to fail, as he has done it on multiple occasions. I gave him a computer I used problem free for 18 months, and it was short-circuited within 3 weeks.
Well now I have brought him into ST:O, and I swear, every single time I have met him to group up, the server has gone down. Not one, not twice, but five time have we agreed to log in and run some missions together, and the minute we group up and arrive at a mission the game crashes.
Unfortunately, this is his first MMO, and he isn't as big a Star Trek fanboy as I am. He is definitely not seeing the point, even though I have tried to express this isn't normal MMO behavior.
I am really hoping I get the chance to show him how awesome things can be, so could you keep the server up during primetime? It's the only time he ever plays.
