But it's the truth. The only way to get Cryptic to shift maintenance times is to get more people to play during 1100 to 1700 UTC.

Their normal Maintenance times are fine for most of Europe, children are at school and adults are at work so i don't see the problem. If they shifted it to something like 8pm GMT then I would not be happy.

The thing is, servers are usually still down for another two hours when I come home after work. Unfortunately, that's exactly the time where I'd want to play in order to relax and clear my head a little.

Again?! I guess my sarcastic comment about the 486 DX33 servers is actually true then... Cryptic it may be time to use the Cstore income and buy some new servers that don't need an hour long reboot everyday you know.

have they fixed the eternal time warp bug now so 1600 - 1700 utc means 1700-1800 CET?

Daily maintenance is not new for an mmo. I believe Eve takes 30 minutes every day at the same time. While we may have been use to 3 hours every Thursday or once a week. I believe they are still need to improve the process a bit. If you think about it they did manage to make it only an hour window today. Hopefully they figured out enough from the emergency maintenance to avoid those issues again.

eve does a restart everyday, but eve is a different monster allltogether and no relevance to sto

...and to all the new captains that started playing STO since F2P launch: yes, this is what we paid for the last 2 years. maybe you should reconsider and spend a monthly fee for a real game. this is what i will do

Eh.. **** happens, I suppose.

Although what I find slightly baffling is that I had no stability problems whatsoever after the initial F2P patches at the start of the week. It's only 2 performance patches later that I've seen any issues.

Well, with any luck this'll sort it out.
