Yeah, it was a crash vs.planned maintenance which they usually warn you about. Believe it or not, the servers are a lot better than they were in beta, but clearly they still need work. The first month or two is usually pretty rough for MMOs, so give it time, but this is definitely one of the thngs they need to fix sooner rather than later.
hmm sunday the 14th feb 3 down times already wtf they playing at
Yeah, I'm getting really tired of this too. City of Heroes didn't crash this bad when it first launched in 2004. AND that server tech is considered out of date by today's standards. I've been a Star Trek fan for over 30 years and this game is truly the most promising of ST games to be created. However the server issues MUST BE FIXED soon or they will loose this gamer's business.
