Open up your options, go to video settings, click the "show advanced video settings" box, scroll down to the detail tab, go down to the bottom of that and look for "Max physics debris objects" and set it to 0. Then, whenever people create balloons, you'll see them briefly as they come out of the party popper, but they disappear instantly once they've been spawned as a movable object. Then you can mute to your heart's content.

I know that this will effect exploded things in ground maps, like grenade shrapnel, blown up turrets, etc, but to be honest that stuff isn't very important or even pretty to look at. I dunno if it has an effects in space.

Happened to me just last night at K7. Balloons everywhere to the point that you couldn't see where you were going, tried to change instance and got the "no possiblemaps" message. Then the game locked up and I had to kill it with task manager.

It was many played games ago since I stopped get "annoyed" by things like this, and later changed all together to enjoy them.

As long as the stuff like the popper doesn't really break the game, affecting some other code I think it's a cool/fun addition.

About the lag it may cause, I think this will only happen for a few days when it's still new and exciting to celebrate the anniversary.

In the age on entitlement and "me me me me me" those few who constantly annoy with those infernal things cause people to have to restart the game.

Why do the few have to ruin it for the majority? Why should I have to change instances? Why should I have to adjust my settings? Why should Star Trek have such inane things? Is the player base so small that we need to attract the griefers to boost numbers?

Well that sucked! This is why the devs should revisit this popper and try and tweak them somehow so they don't create so much lag etc. Because I have to admit, they are fun but the lag they create is not!

What kind of connection have you guys got if you're getting lag from this stuff?

Well, I've a 50MB fibre power connection. So that can't be the problem. Not for me anyway.

Solution:

Upgrade that ancient system of yours. It's not Cryptic's responsibility to cater to the oldest and antiquated systems out there.

It's a social zone, you accept the possibility of being annoyed.

It's not a theater, lol. In a theater there is at least some expectation of quiet given that the reason for being there is to enjoy the movie.

LOL at these antisocial types playing in an MMO. I loathe zone chat, and I choose to ignore it because it's banal nonsense most of the time. That doesn't mean I should force them to stop it. I use the tools available to me to not have to deal with it.
