The thing that amazes me most with Cryptic is the ability of the EP to answer 'as far as I'm aware' or 'I'm not sure' on so much ;-)

That's like all day for me?
Or am I mistaken from what the news says?

So little doubt that we can expect numerous threads in the coming hours, posted by the ignorant and inattentive - many of whom don't usually bother with the forums, complaining about:

Length of time it'll take for the patch to download
Speed of patch download
Length of time game offline
Game speed (once patch applied/downloaded)

And lots of speculation (since the issue isn't entirely clear) as to whether the season six patch will be implemented in the downtime.
No apologies for quoting one of my own posts.....

Guessing that the in-game notifcations regarding downtime may have started, since the type of thread that I described have begun appearing.

[Sarcasm]No, it's just a rumor and Cryptic/the Dev's posted various news items, and in-game messages, pertaining to the sever downtime just for the fun of it[/sarcasm]

Possibly, but you should be 49% sure, not 99%.

Here is what has been said regarding this:

As some have deduced, it may also mean the release of Season 6, but we have not announced anything as of yet. We realize there are still a few reported bugs from Tribble. The team is working pretty much around the clock addressing issues as quickly as possible. If you see an announcement or release notes that Season 6 is being put on Holodeck tomorrow, then you can expect several updates over the next week to address any remaining or newly found issues. We appreciate all of the testing we've had on TRIBBLE over the last 6 weeks. The entire STO team is focused on addressing both reported bugs as well as individual feedback. Thank you for your patience.

Hands up if you've ever been involved in a major update to an e-commerce service?

A lot of the time you may be planning to do something at a certain time... but unforeseen circumstances are all too common. Stahl just doesn't want to commit to a release date/time that might not be guaranteed. It's not incompetence, it's caution.
