i know it annoying as hell cuz we all want to play but hang in there guys it will get better (fingerscrossed)
i honestly think the biggest issue with this game is how popular it is. as in the devs had no idea how many star trek/sci-fi nuts are out there waiting for an mmo like this. open beta & pre-order have blown there projections out the water and the network infurstructure just can't cope.
i'm from the UK and when all u guys in the US are asleep the system runs alot better with very few of the lag/crash/login issues.
so all i can say is give it time. i know thats not how we want it to be. but most of us r guna keep playing anyway so at least take comfort in the thought it will get better, if u can
The board forums are also clogged. I can't even get into the Dev Notes section, it always times out.
This excuse of "we had no idea how popular this would be" no longer flies. They had a very good sense of how overloaded things would get in OB, and now things will get even worse. If your network people cannot reasonably predict server loads by now, fire them.
I agree it looks like a load issue. Hopefully they'll knuckle down and spring for more hardware. Though I can't imagine ANYONE would be surprised, it's not like Star Trek is on the same level as Champions in terms of franchise popularity!
