I've come to dread new seasons in STO. Hey look! Great new features! 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.
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.

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've wanted to post about sending a bill to Cryptic for the increased amount of smoking that I've been doing because of this change. 21 assignments, 4 R&D research...on 9 toons...@5s each, that's ~19 minutes that I spend of each game session just waiting for things to finish.

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