"find out what quest .... cannot be completed"

Exactly my point. Now it will take another 40+ minutes once I'm back in-game so I can see if the quest can or can not be completed. And any issues with it.

If I was just playing to level it would be different. I'm trying to do what they asked - run every quest and notify them of issues I run into. But that's hard when I have to keep re-doing quests due to things like this.

2)This is beta, not hte real deal. Crashes should be a bit expected, I think...(First beta, sorry if I'm not more helpful)

3) Not being able to finish a mission is better than being in a mission where everyone suddenly appears, steals all the loot, and leaves, not really helping one way or the other. Maybe they should just give everyone the same loot when enemies die.

Ok, 3 is my main complaint. I was in a team with my Dad and suddenly 3 people show up, get blown up a lot, and steal the stuff that the enemies dropped. I was able to get some of it, so I'll have to exchange what Dad wants later, but it was just rude. I do have another complaint about the "Open Instance Team" system, but that's because of the first complaint.
I always try to help out with whatever I can, I normally don't get any loot though lol, I think I got the short end of the stick in that respect. And occasionally I do get blown up, but sometimes it's because of magic zombie BS, as in one moment my shield is taking next to no damage the next it's down and my hull is losing integrity at a rate that shouldn't be possible.

I'm sure a lot of people are like me and don't want to repeat the same hour long quest 3x just because we don't know what's going on with the server.

This is the second time I've been through something like this.
You're supposed to be just playing at Cryptic's leisure right now. It's just a glorified no pay job that you've agreed to do.

When game time rolls around, then you have a right to complain. As it stands you're helping them. You're not even paying yet.

Don't know what a pram is but I wouldn't throw my toys. I love my action figures, :p

There should be a mandatory IQ & Maturity test for some people before they are allowed into any BETA sessions.....

Obviously, you would be one of the fails, and we would be spared your ridiculous comments,,,,,,
