You know vain, every time I see you forum avatar I keep expecting to see an erection.
I'm not sure why that is
I'm not often rendered speechless, but this came close.
The avatar is actually a wood print of a spirit called Orobas, horse lord of the undeworld. I love horses (in a platonic way, so no erections).
I thought it would be a good ship "flag" design for the USS Crazy Horse, as I saw the UFP flag emblazoned on my Light Cruiser. But alas, I do not believe we can paste custom art on our ships, but the avatar stayed.
It does look like some kind of depiction of pagan spermatic joy, I suppose.
I like scheduled downtimes, it creates routine, however i would prefer it if it was to start an hour earlier so it would sit in a window of 10am til 12 noon. This would mean the server availability would be there during lunch breaks.
Downtime here or there is a necessary thing.. and anyway it gives folk chance to go do other things and not be (hopefully) sat in front of the pc. I use this time wisely and you get to enjoy the downtime as much as the time you spend playing.
That said, I had a life before STO came along... In fact, I still live it. In a situation when STO isn't available, I look to my outside life for something else to do. It's not really all that difficult a concept. Of course, I'm paying for STO now... But just like any MMO, maintenance and server crashes become more infrequent as time goes on.
I do not mind at all. I can understand the bumps on the road, especially on the game launch. I had been playing EVE and on-hour downtime everyday is not anything unbearable. I only wish Cryptic make it official .
