It may sound selfish but thats how i see it.
They do everything to give us a nice game environement and for that the y have to bring the servers down...
I raise a cup of coffee in agreement. btw is it just me or did OP mis read one of the posts?

No offense.

Also like you said OP. Cancel your subscription (Ohh impatient one)

I'd gladly fill your spot if we get max capacity again

i don't particularly care about the down time but why are you doing it one the weekend? The most busiest time of the week and your doing a server patch???Wouldn't Monday be better when most people are either going to work or school.

This is not intended to offend you in anyway, but there are many many more threads like the one you have started here, and they all wind up being equally pointless. I'm sure Cryptic are painfully aware of the unhappiness of their players over the downtime, so there really is no need to keep starting new threads on the same tired topic.
Well said. Well said.

I agree 100%.

As an added to what you said.

Who in general *IS* happy during downtime. Ya so you get 2 hours to yourself. I spend it drinking coffee and just took a jog down to Tim Hortons. I see others spend it on forums and not complaining.

But you have to be the one (referring to OP) that have to write a thread based nothing else but the bellyaching of downtime.

I have a question. How long did you play today?

My friend played for nearly 16 hours stright. I played 8 hours. and 2 of my other real life friends played for 12 hours.

This is more then a few hours.

Unless cause I am canadian and i duno but few where i live means 3.

btw heres a clip for those that spend their time on forums writing threads like this one.

I am not offended. And you are right, Cryptic is trying to figure out how many people are playing at one time. But one question that comes to mind is. When will Cryptic get more servers to accomodate more players? Look at what Blizzard is doing for WoW. Maybe Cryptic can learn a thing or two from its competitors.

Hey folks,

We just wanted to update you on our in-game server capacity status. Throughout Head Start we noticed the overwhelming response to the game and we are working on changes to further increase the number of people who can play Star Trek Online at any given time. Our current plan is to have these changes in place sometime this coming weekend. We will, of course, keep you updated on progress as it happens.

Really, we just want to thank you all again for your continued support and patience. If it wasn’t for you, we wouldn’t be here.
