I get home from work at 4 pm eastern time and log into the game and I see that there is now a waiting time to get in game which im fine with me if it helps the lag and the server stability. I'm placed in line 400ish/500 and I wait the 40 mins and I get in only to fly my ship for a few seconds and have a Cargo ship ask if i want to trade, after hitting yes im booted right out of the game with a game crash submit form and so I suck it up and log back in only to be in a bigger line this time 1024/1050. So i spend the next 2 hours waiting in line and this time its going on 7:30 and Ive playd for at most 5 minutes out of the last 3 + hours. This time I decide to stay away from dumping off my loot at any sort of cargo ship assuming its a bug and i go to a system to do a mission, only to have the load screen go about 1/4 of the way and come up saying unable to connect to server and im booted to the log in screen (an improvment from the last time where i was booted right out of the game). Now i am stuck in a sytem that must be down because everytime I log in and get loading screen it just says server is unable to connect and drops me to log in screen.
This just has happend today , the last few days ive not been booted once and have never had any lag so it must be something new but the point of this post was to show how even them implementing a "q" seems to be improving nothing, at least for me. Time is now going on 8 its been 4 hours and ive playd for a max of 10 minutes and the q is now up to 1100 so I wont be waiting anymore , hopfully this will be fixed within a few days so I can try more of the game.
What I'd like to know is how the people who spend 45 mins just hanging around outside the earth space dock are doing so with out getting booted out? When I was there last night there was a small army of ships just sitting there, went on the station and did my business....took maybe 20-30 minutes since I explored a bit. Then I left and came back a while later and most of the same ships were sitting in the exact same spots they had been when I left. If you aren't going to play freak'en log out and let the rest of us in. Don't try to hold your spot while you're off doing something else.
I can't believe someone would ask this question. Preferably, someone would have had the sense that a property as popular as Star Trek that has literally millions of potential players throughout the world would require a much larger capacity than what they have currently.
The game is totally unplayable in its present form. A 2 hour login queue? You've got to be joking me.
2 hour que? Ive logged in and out 4-5 times in the last 2 hours. Always gotten in within 5 minutes.
