Let's hold off on the pissing contest for the moment. Can we all agree that if the server stability is corrected to match the increasing number of people that wish to join up on STO so they can be able to enjoy this game is just as important as any bugs currently happening.
Secondly for all we know, the romulan expansion could possible have the corrections and fixes to most of the problems that are currently happening at the moment of time. Please keep in mind that Cryptic is doing what they can when they can, when as many people as they possibly can.
Thirdly would you rather they send out fixes and corrections to problems that could possibly and potential cause more harm than good and could also cause more problems?
I'm sure that Cryptic isn't in any way, shape or form trying to neglect nor forget about those bugs and issues that are currently going on. And if they did correct a "small" issue that is going on don't you think that they have to prioritise and sort out how much of an issue and its urgency to when they should have it corrected.
Please don't take what I say as a mean to be nasty at anyone. I am just stating and asking that we all should be patience and please give cryptic's staff the chance and opportunity to fix everything as best as they can.
id certainly pay to be on our own server where i know people would have to know english so maybe they would understand the instructions im giving in a stf and therefore maybe they wouldnt fail as often as they do in pugs. also be nice to not see loads of gibberish fill my chat window up as well and it be nice for them to do maintanence when im sleeping so i can play when im awake.
Firstly, regarding the timings of fixes and maintenance. Has it occurred to any of you that Cryptic is going to do these things during the time when its staff are there to do so? Just because this means that it is 2pm-4pm UK time doesn't mean that they are doing it deliberately to upset UK players. They are choosing the best time to fix things in their own time zone. It's not their fault this affects other time zones differently.
Secondly, as regards the bugs everyone moans about. As a former programmer and PC Engineer of many years I know just how difficult it can be to track down and fix a bug at times. First you have to reproduce the bug and find out how it occurs. This may mean having the bug appear a few times while you track down its cause. Then you have to try to solve the bug without affecting the rest of the program. And in a game as complicated as STO that can be difficult.
And while most programmers would love to be able to fix every bug in a program, there are always priorities and schedules to keep. Which means that you just don't always have the luxury of time to find and eliminate everything.
So how about we cut these guys a little slack here and have a bit more patience.
Now realize that the USA is larger, more people, more gamers in general.
If they made a chinese-language version of this game, then the maintenances would be done during the times when the chinese were asleep, or at work, because they'd skew the player level numbers.
Metthinks you need a pair of glasses, if you stick to this reasoning. Europe, population of 603 million at 2008, North America (USA, Canada, Mexico) a 444 million at 2008. Now realize that you are talking out of the back of your neck.
The moderators need to start locking these threads. They are meant to be for information in regards to server status, not for whoever can troll the most or sit there and whine about bugs and in game issues that have been around since PWE took over. Or even issues that existed long before then. If there's an issue, then please post it in the appropriate section of the forums, and leave these announcements alone. Noone likes sifting through page after page of trolling.
