Confirmed - this works - got directly on using my mobile as a 3G hotspot and my home broadband disconnected. (Just be sure to avoid nasty large roaming charges by reverting to normal Internet once your in!)
Snip - only way I can get on as well via my mobile hotspot
"No, there is no real problem with P2W in STO. Obviously, if you fight against someone with an equal level of skill in the game, better equipment will give you an edge. But usually, it is the skill level that determines the outcome, not the P2W." - Sprinkles
any NIC on the way could be faulty, that is true, but then there would be other services impaired as well... maybe there are, maybe not. But since players are online and I guess it's the same Datacenter, the problem should be well within the Datacenter...

i was ingame 11 12 ish hours ago working fine then began to get some server not responding again then just went to bed was sleepy now same thing launcher loading check connection unable to connect to patch server connecting is fine i'm able to be here my guess is this is whats caused all the recent server not responding issues since intel graphics patch(not intel user just using as point of reference) i'm guessing the fix may be too much for a section in the hops to play too many people all of a sudden again overworked parts of the connection something had to collapse trying to keep up.
i really hope you guys at cryptic have a back up plan for this i really really do i love the game
I don't think it's PWE's fault... Boston has just been hit by a 120-megaton thermonuclear weapon.
It's terrible - they're stacking the bodies like planks of wood, they turned our local food court into a triage center, people are walking around with melted faces and horrible radiation burns. There's been a spate of looting and home invasions.
Boston appears to have been the first city hit by a massive surprise attack from the diabolical forces of the European Union. New York should be hit shortly. I would imagine the West Coast should be feeling the burn in a few hours at most.
With all this horribleness going on, I'm glad I just bought a gas generator, an uninterruptable power supply, and satelite internet. I want to unwind from boarding my windows and doors with some Star Trek Online, and it frustrates me that the servers aren't available.
I don't care whether it's because of PWE ineptitude or nuclear war. Fix the problem. Now.
This just made my day. I tip my hat to you, sir. Although let's be honest, you live in a lead bunker...it's probably your internet connection that's the problem.
