i have played mmo's where you beg for maintenance or the company doesn't care. so in my opinion this is better then a game you can't play because its broken. also all the maintenance is not always game server affecting if your logged in. just so you know my gaming experience is 25 years so i do have some experience. also STO is a living growing piece of software that craves attention.
I know this game is only a year old but I just joined two weeks ago and in that short time there have been 7 server downtimes.
I've played MANY MMO's and this MMO has by far the most frequent downtimes I've seen.
IS this the level of service I should expect from STO in the short and long term? if so then I think I deserve a refund! these outages are waaay too frequent.
I am living in Thailand atm and these downtimes are hitting me during MY prime time 6:00pm
Can someone from Cryptic please respond to this?
welcome to STO! i have been here since Beta.... normally there is not this much server down time. They tend to do regular maintenance and stuff on Thursdays i believe? (correct me someone if i'm wrong)
however recently they have had a flurry of things to do... account servers have had to be updated due to CoH going free to play and a number of features are getting ready for release. Its a busy time for STO and that will show in server down time. its annoying now, but its going to be worth it with how much they improve the game.
