After selecting a character, the login counter reaches anywhere from 93. - 98.9 quickly (in seconds), then freezes, and Server Not Responding appears. I have let the SNR run up 5 minutes with no change. Have to CTRL+ALT+DEL to get out of game and try once more.
I have tried at least 10 times. Managed to get on to Tribble with one character after an SNR time of under 1 minute. Rest, endless SNR.
This has only happened after the latest patch (10/27 I think)
EDIT: Whatever was broke seems to have been fixed or what was off was turned on again. Two characters so far without SNR on login. Yay.
EDIT 2: Third Tribble copy character I tried had the same issue. Oh well. Still having problems.
There must be some fundimental difference between Tribble and Holodeck, during the login process. I do NOT have this problem trying to get onto Holodeck at all. Only Tribble.
I am replying to my own post with each patch, hoping that things change.
This post is post-Winter Event activation.
It is not a consistent bug, either. This morning, I first logged in one character with no problems. Then I tried switching to a second character. That one had SNR for about 12 seconds before logging in. Not too bad so far.
Third character, tried twice and both times SNR at around 93.8 login, after selecting the character. Tried a fourth character, same fail.
I have tried force-verify with no change. Whatever is going on seems to happen on the Cryptic end just past selecting the character.
