What happened, you are doing 'unscheduled maintenance' but why? No reason given? Why?
if you find that annoying, then you know what you sound like to most of us.
Seriously though, when a player is not doing anything wrong and the server kicks him her or off and then someone says 'we're doing unscheduled maintenance' and does not give a reason, it sounds like an insane person just walked into the room. When that happens and we are not allowed to log back in because of the maintenance, it just stinks.
You also said if you are logged on already it should not affect you.. guess what? It did. Ok, now just tell us when these things will work properly so we can get away from complaining and back to playing.
The game is BARELY tolerable for me as is. And yes, I have a lot of free time on my hands (unemployment tends to do that to a person). I have a number of other games I play from time-to-time, when I get the "urge" to play.
It's funny that you find it enjoyable to deconstruct every comment I make, yet you take ZERO consideration into the possibility that I might be playing the game, because it's "Star Trek". If there was a Star Trek MMO made by ANY other company, i'd jump at the chance to play that instead.
This is an example of those weird priorities around fun I was talking about.
You openly admit that this game is not fun for you.
The only reason you play it is because it has a Star Trek name on it.
I repeat NOT FUN for you.
The day that I actively do something that isn't fun just because it says Star Trek , or Dungeins and Dragons, etc etc , is the day I am checking myself in someplace for some help.
I found the Dungeons and Dragons movie to be awful.
I was having no fun watching it.
I walked out of the theater and went and played some hackey sack with friends instead. The proper response I think when something that is supposed to be fun , is no longer fun , is to STOP doing that thing.
Regardless of the name attached to it.
