If Cryptic has any sense, they'll take the servers offline until they can get some more to take the strain. I love how they've toted that there are 2 million individual accounts, but there's now a queue of 4000 people who can't play.

Have you ever been to a concert festival where the space was below the capacity sold?

Have you ever tried to make a cell phone call after a major situation... disaster, celebratory incident, etc?

Planning for critical moments of singularity type events, no matter the situation, is impossible.

Queues exist everywhere. You call the phone company, you get put on hold. You go to a auto shop, and you drop your car off.

If the queues weren't there, the lag wouldn't be a problem: the servers wouldn't be online. You are no more entitled to be online, than any of the other few hundred or thousand people also trying - and the reality is, if you were there last, then you no more deserve to be on there than the person that was waiting there an hour before you. While you may not understand the situation, that does not mean you have to forego understanding towards it.

There is not a game in the world that does not have queues. Be glad you only experienced it here on STO today, while others face it daily on many other games. Cryptic has done a relatively good job of predicting demand over the course of the last 3 years, and overall their track record for handling demand is actually relatively spotless in the grand scheme of things. Blizzard couldn't prevent queues to save their life for the first 4-5 years of Wow's existence... and I won't even get started on the few hours of waiting on some other games.

Whether you pay daily, are a lifer, or just simply a f2p player... the truth is neither one of those titles has any true entitlement to it, other than the granted gift of playing the game - but that gift is entirely dependent on the availability of space for you to play. It may not be the grand solution you want... but its a solution that is and always will be the accepted one. Servers don't grow on trees... neither does bandwidth.

Is it just coincidence that my graphics card went out right after a STO update?

I don't know the answer to this question. But don't go pretending you know the answer either. Stranger things have happened!!

For the record my card was 8800gt 512mb more then enough for STO.
8800GT 512MB... A GT 520 is better than that. I had a GT 520, I then switched up with a GTX 660.

Your drivers will fail because of the card. This game taxes your card more than you realize.

Yeah well the waiting time between loading screens whichever way you look at it is an insult, 3mins plus!!

Let's add the various random disconnections, and factor in that as a lifetime subscriber, i'm supposed to get preferential treatment for logins, in the small print somewhere. been waiting over 15mins now to log back in as the servers are full. So what have i actually paid for here?

Oh yes and i quote, "Your queue position is 905 out of 6707". Thanks for making me feel special. Bloody joke!!

I don't see that as a viable solution, and actually I consider that a rather selfish one.

You can't play, so those that can get on shouldn't be able to play either? Gameplay isn't broken right now... map movement may be, but I was able to complete the event quest just fine on two characters now... and there are plenty others who are online doing the same.

And, what happens in three days when all the overwhelming shiny traffic has gone down... what does cryptic do then with all the money they put towards 72 hours of peak, and another 6 months of 30% of that?

Turning them off during the whole event would cause more suffering and far more outrage than queues. Doing that, especially after the full downtime that was experienced earlier in the week, would only serve to cause more outrage and even more desertion... and it serves even more to generate a nice rift between those who were playing and those who were waiting to, and then we have a warring player base on top of everything else.

I don't see any of that as a reasonable solution, or an acceptable outcome.
