I'm wondering why the time slot for maintenance is ALWAYS 15:00-17:00.

I can only log on due to other commitment then and it's always affecting me, can it not be varied slightly, even by an hour or two?

Same her, BUT the character that i used for testing on tribble still has the progress it had before, so probably only a problem with copying

The only thing that tells me he was reading anything on the forums is him telling some of you people to "learn some manners"

Good call there Mr Stahl.
I'm sorry, but drivel like this really makes me angry.

If Cryptic had taken the time to study the 'data' on my playing habits post-Season 7 all they'd have seen is that I've logged on a lot less, done probably 5% of the STFs I used to and that I've been spending most of my in-game time grinding Contraband on my KDF characters.

What can you gather from that? I no longer find the STFs as rewarding, I no longer find the game as compelling and acquiring Dilithium has obviously become a concern.

Metrics alone aren't enough to resolve the problem - it's only part of the picture and in order to see the complete picture you have to engage with your customers.

Yes, some people have been very angry and very vocal about their dissatisfaction - and honestly, I can't blame them for that at all. Cryptic has shown nothing but contempt for its customers with Season 7 and the player base responded in kind.

If I'd ever screwed up as badly in my job as Stahl did with this, I wouldn't expect to be in that job any longer. But as unimpressed as I've been with Cryptic, I can at least understand their motives.

The people I don't understand are the ones that willingly sit there and do nothing whilst they're being taken for a ride (and then have the gall to criticise those that do place value on their time and their money).

I applaud the changes that are being made - they don't go far enough in some ways (and strangely overcompensate in others) but at least they've shown they're willing to meet us part-way.

The answer to that question
First one half of the so called Community complains: "Give us instant access to all veteran rewards, for going lifetime.", then the other half of the same Community complains: "I've earned 1000 Day membership, I want a special reward.".
Stop complaining, if it is enough for you, you could have the "Captains Table" for the real veterans, I don't want access to another dead social zone...

Dang. I was looking forward to spending part of the morning playing.......... I was going to do a PVE event. Only need 600 skill points to move onto the next grade, and those Gorn Minefield events are pretty good for getting skill points....((( Well, in my time its suppost to be over at 9 but its 10 right now, so I guess I'll have to keep waiting. Dang. And I'm starting to play the new Romulon missions, so that's pretty cool. I am addicted to this game!!!

Did you move scheduled maintenance's to wendsday's?

Or can we expect another maintenance tommorow? (normal day for scheduled maintenance)

Tomorrow is a holiday. The schedule will go back to normal next week, I suspect.

I would just like to say thank you for removing yet another 1440 dilithium reward. It is most excellent that you guys have removed VA B'Tran , now the daily fleet action, ruined stf and lets not forget the increased cost. This seems to me as a pathetic attempt to make it take forever to progress or maintain 8,000 a day. Oh and the gods merely laugh at those of us who play more than one toon, trying to progress 1 is stupidly hard now. Let see considering stf is the ONLY EFFECTIVE means of gaining the 8,000 a day this means that anyone with 1 or more toons is subject to a min of 8 stf a day..every day...so people with 4 toons to hit the refine cap takes oh 13 hours..... Great work guys way to keep the consumers happy. Glad to see 300 cancelled accounts and 1,000 deletted accounts showed you guys absolutly nothing at all. Yet you semed surprised when people quit the game or refuse to spend money on a sinking ship. You cannot get more blood from the stones you have so heres a hint...GET MORE STONES. So how do you entice new customers? how do you increase sales and climb the charts to game of the year? It is actually quite simply . LISTEN TO YOU CONSUMERS. we dont want to spend 14 hours a day just to get 8k and never be able to enjoy the rest of the game. we want to come in do a couple dailies hit our refine in a hour or less and go play the game. Once you have created a situation where logging in feels like going to a job...people quit playing....really how STUPID are you guys seriously do they pay you or is it a bunch of trained chimps you guys got running things?
