its funny how many people over react when the sto server goes down... OMG ITS THE END OF THE WORLD!!! NOOO I CANT PLAY STAR TREK. All this complaining makes me think I'm trying to play World of ******** not Star Trek Online.
Agreed. The ETA has been stated, and while people don't want to read a 100+ page thread, I've seen posters rattle off the remaining time until the server is up. So, for the record, the ETA is 9:50 PM PDT (That's 12:50 AM EDT). So that leaves approximately 20 minutes remaining.
Firstly I have to say that CommanderJackson900, you are my hero! Why you may ask? because everything you said is true, personally for me I love the fact that I can now live my dream of being the captain of a ship stopping those green-blooded Romulans, and quelling a True-Way uprising.
Secondly I would like to say that we have all just survived another crash, yes, I know that for those of us who still pay or have a lifetime membership it is kind of disheartening, but in the programming world these things happen. I know because I used to run my own game server several years back for an older game, Tibia.
What we need to do is take the time we have from this, and come to the forums and thank the programmers for all the work that they have put into keeping this beast alive. Not only that, for EVERYTHING they do for us, there are a lot of things that have been changed/added to the game that many players have asked for, and they went forth and made it happen.
Thirdly, to the haters dissing those who complain, thanks, we enjoy having something to occupy us while the server is down
