Thank you for the information Brandon. I'd like to defend Cryptic's support and say they are going above and beyond the call of duty to solve this sort of thing (not specifically this) BUT given Cryptic's track record I can understand why quite a few people are sharpening their pitchforks and lighting torches. It's not the first time Cryptic's taken something working and broken it.
Still "patience is a virtue" or for those seeking a trek quote; "Time is patience so we must be patient with it".
Above and beyond the call of duty?
Excuse me, but keeping their servers accessable is part of their call of duty. There is nothing above and beyond about them working on this. It is their job, and it is what we pay them for.
Must really suk to have the problem be 1500+ miles away from where They are.

There are No Longer any STO Veterans... We're Just Minions who have Played the Game for the last 4.95 years.
Not bashing, usually their maintenance is routine & finishes before the stated time, but they could just upload the patch, give us the url to download it so we can move it into our sto folder and run the exe.
I remember having this problem back in Season 1; but, I would have thought they would be byond this issue, now. I am having the same issue as the OP. Checked everything. I can sign into other MMO's, but not STO.
