Why did Cryptic change the maintenance times? I like to get up early and play a little before work and now they have the server down during that time. I'm Pacific time, but Central and Eastern would have this right in the middle of the day.

What was wrong with the wee hours of the morning for these updates? Seems like it changed the Perfect World took over. What time is this in China? Is that what's governing it?

Change it back!

Wrong, during work i do not complain about that, because I'm still at work when its down, with the current and the old maintenance times.
Of course right now I'm on the last days of my vacation and sit here waiting for the server to get back up lol.

# 35 Maintenance Times

And you can't please all the people all the time, but I would think since the majority of the players are in the US, they would want to work around US time zones.

And if someone wants to say that the majority aren't in the US, I would ask, then why is the game based in San Francisco and we are typing in US English?

I disagree. I tried to do the Fire Caves a few weeks ago and it was a pathing nightmare with BOffs constantly running into the lava. I took-up the character again over the weekend and had no pathing issues with the mission. How quickly they get fixed depends on how quickly people send in bug reports. If you never report it then it does not get fixed - because only a small percentage of the threads on the forum get read by a Dev.

Server down-times are adjusted based on internal server data - they choose the time when the least amount of people are online, per average.

How do you call ships with more console slots / BO skills compared to their counterparts on the same tier? Toys? Think again. They are pay to win. The consoles are just a nice gimmick.

Oh, the devs said there is a counter or a counter is comming soon. Great. I don't believe in any date or timeframe Cryptic has posted. You should be grown up enough, too.

I missed the causal relationship to my P2W remark. Not all changes are bad. But... who likes the B'rel?

No it's not. Take 4 of your most skilled fleetmates and compete against a team that spams Pengs, Scramble 3, Charged Particle Bursts and Torpedo Spreads. Have fun.

Cryptic started to offer better lower tier ships for real money. Now they added T4.5 ships. Won't take long until they offer T5.5s. And the sad truth is that you actually have to buy them to stay competetive in PvP.

I think the last ship skin to come out was the Tor'Kaht back in October of last year. I would not put much hope into the idea of it being a skin option.
