I just figured it was Cryptic being bad at counting again lol. It would have been nice if the countdown was a little more clear, but I assume it is to do with maybe the announcement of the May changes.

Bingo. Either that or when it gets down to a few hours, the countdown will go away and Cryptic will say "What countdown? We never put up a countdown."

And not that final countdown, THIS ONE! It's got a carrier in it!
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

Could be worse, they could all be so totally messed up at counting that the only number they know is 250. Been down that road won't go back. Talk about a messed up economy. Came back to this game and it was a sigh of relief. Some of you know which game I'm talking about. It starts with a G. and the devs name starts with an A.

I thought it was funny too that it was before the month changed over and wonder what they will be releasing when the countdown is up. If it's just an announcement that's a little odd.

They know 400, just ask the Exchange.

They pulled you out of shore leave for this, I hope you're well rested and high in fiber you're going to need it.

The following message will appear:

"The STO Server is down for maintenance. There are no patch notes as this is just for hardware maintenance. We took the option of a 3 week countdown in response to player complaints that we never gave enough lead time for server maintenance announcements. The countdown to the next maintenance period will start aftwer this maintenance cycle has concluded.

Yeah, great I can't wait..... but, one minor thing. Before anything else is released fix some minor issues:
- enourmous lag;
- failure to connect to patch servers.

Yep, that's right. That countdown isn't to troll *us*. That countdown is to troll *you*! They told you guys to do all this hard work for something big, and made a show about keeping it a huge secret and not telling anyone about what you were doing.

Then, when the countdown hits 0, nothing happens. They say, "GOTCHA!", point, and laugh, and since they didn't tell anyone about what was going to happen, well, you can't fail to meet expectations when you never gave anyone any real expectations to begin with.

Or maybe when the countdown hits 0, your alien overlords will finally bring their plans for world domination to fruition, and from that moment on, we'll all hail Alan. The Cowboy.

Anything could happen!!!
