Definatly the surge of us all trying to get onto the servers giving it a stressfull time, and normally happens i guess in most MMOs when something new to see. As be a larger amount then cb now trying to create adn play this ST game.
So what's going to happen, we have to play roulette? I would have thought with the hype and push for the beta, there would have been enough severs up to handle this. if this is a preview of Feb, how are they gonna get people to want to play and stay?
This never happend in CO, mind you there was a hell of a lot less of us playing then. Right now the servers are going through a stress test to see what needs to be done to prevent filling up too fast, its a normal part of beta's, they only have so much resources to make improvements with, so they need to test what needs upgrading.
I'm aware of the open beta, and I understand that the open beta LOL is pretty much just a stress test, but jeeze, I've never seen it this bad on an open beta, but then again, the only other game like it is EVE and it isn't STO.
So far I've been booted durring the character creation several times, finally created, then one of two things happen, I either make to the loading maps or I never do, LOL and get kicked back to the sign in screen.
I do hope they up the capacity quickly due to all the keys given, they should have taken the beta's stability for what it was and how it was getting towards the end and multiplied that several times over for the open beta.
I honestly hope they are quicker when it comes to launch however.
