Its the freakin storm I bet! aren't the servers in NY or something? That's still no excuse for this delay. Hurricane or not they got an obligation to us, especially those of us that pay.
the fact it's not just STO but CO as well indicates they're dealing with a hardware-issue ( or most probably failure ) which can happen to any MMO . I distinctly remember extensions of maintenance for other MMO's as well ( and those were 100% subscription based ) , often extensions of several hours . And that was always due to hardware failure . Let's just hope they have a mirrored copy : we don't want a repeat of the Metin 2 debacle, lol
