just log of with no issues to speak of. a few seconds of server not responding but right back into the action. Really this is better than I expected. Only glitch so far was trying to add colors to my ship. had the energy but it would never save the changes. Very minor issue in my opinion. Overall very impressed. Saturday will be the true test as I am getting the rest of my liffers together and running as a fleet using the same internet connection.
Opposite experience for me...I can't even get the launcher to update ><
Well that sucks. I am beginning to wonder if some ISP are causing issues with this game. I have not had any server issues since day one and I am playing on a laptop that is below system specs and on a wireless internet connection. Sure their could be issues with Cryptic servers but I can't say I have had any issues.
See if disabling your firewall on both your local machine and if your router has one helps. That's the best suggestion I could give you.
I've had the same experience as the OP, few server not responding messages then jumping right back in to the action. Very few DC's, all far between. Got two characters to level 5 already (had to start over once I got my borg) and I've been having a blast playing with my fleet members.
Sounds like conflicts between ISPs and Cryptic to an extent. That or their server bandwidth is somehow misconfigured to not equalize across the board, giving some people more bandwidth access than others when logged in.
I'm just guessing since my knowledge in this area is limited. I may be completely off target.
I 100% agree, I haven't played any other MMO really besides WoW, and I could not stop gushing about how smooth this was. No lag whatsoever, rubberbanding occasionally. I haven't seen a patch in wow that can even do that after so many years!
I was also very impressed with all the features that STO has that wow is just now implementing.
