Unfortunately they don't work quite right and for the next few weeks you are going to have to put up with extended downtimes while we partially fix things that will mostly likely never get fixed in their entirety and break other things in the process.

If this game wasn't Star Trek...

Might surprise you guys, but...

I find it annoying, too. I don't mind them completing as I log in, but if I'm just logging in to alts just long enough to DOFF the wait is... annoying was the right word.

My assumption is that they either added steps to process the assignments and it's just taking longer, or they throttled it for performance reasons.

Either way, I can live with it for now and I don't need a quick fix. But I sure would like to see less delay per assignment.

Throttled for perfomance??? one of my kdf toons they must have put in park ten of his assignments and his r&d projects will not finish. I thought last week's patch fixed this ??

The "fix" broke more than it "fixed". The delay is bad enough but some of us haven't been able to doff for over 5 days now.

The slow doffing is one thing.

Very irritating, an introduced bug, but one I can work around.

The frozen doff missions is another kettle of fish.

Two of my toons now have not been able to progress any R+D at all for nearly a week.

One of those toons does have ten doff slots still open, but the other only one.

That problem is one i feel a tad impatient about.

That is how most fixes go with this game.

# 17 Not Fixed Yet?
08-25-2014, 07:36 PM
Alright... This is a game breaker for me.. I have gritted my teeth and put up with lots of crap but intentionally putting in minutes worth of wasting time just to get started when I log in is unacceptable.

As far as I am concerned, this is the last straw and I am gone till Doff missions complete when they are supposed to complete instead of not till the next time I log in.

If there is one mission that is bugging out, disable it, but don't break everything for a mission that isn't fixed anyway.

And this time?... Not threatenning up front to not play... No... I already haven't been playing since this change because my mood to play gets ruined the moment I have to wait for Doff assignments to finish.

I am also tired of this.

Logging in only to wait 1-3 minutes per char to wait for assignments to "finish" one by one, nicely spamming the view screen and preventing you from assigning R&D tasks etc.?

Seriously, this supposed fix for the problems of a few is lacking, it's screwing up everyone else.

I am pretty sure Cryptic wants to attract new players to STO with the expansion and not to drive most of them away with such annoying issues right after they get to DOFFing.

Smoking!

Hell what about the radiation poisoning I am getting, from sitting and waiting in front of my computer (wireless), for them to complete?

Oh, and yes, smoking in between waiting too!

I knew you were one of us all along.

With the old system layout it took no time to Doff, add to that the lack of organization and it's made something enjoyable very frustrating.

I find myself trying to fill slots up with whatever asap and hop.
