This is stupid - i cant even imagine whats going to happen on feb 2nd - i mean really ( U expect me to pay to get constantly kicked ) from the game right in the middle of a mission , not once twice but 5 times in the last hour.
as far as im concerned there should be no charge to play STO online until at least the common major systems are in working order - i feel really bad for all the people on release day there going to be a lot of really ****ed off and disgruntled people, I suggest you make it FREE to play till fix the damn thing.
I canceled my pre-order because i don't want to PAY to just try logging in when STO goes live - or get kicked just because your servers cant handle the amount of people that will be trying and failing to get in,
Seriously stop being tightwads & hire some programmers that know what there doing, I am aware that every game has bugs but just logging in shouldn't be one of them and is a major failure in programing.
I expect this to happen a bit while they continue to tweak the servers to deal with performance issues. Granted we all would love to see a more stable server, however we all know there were deadlines for this game, so they are doing the best they can with what they have.
Not too bad overall, considering the number of head start players that are basically stress testing the servers non-stop in the beginning areas.
Agreed - although it never ceases to amaze me. I've played a few MMOs at launch and all of them were pushed to release too early IMHO. They have all, without fail, felt like games still being tested, rather than the finished product. I suppose profit rules in this (and every) case: the sooner they get paying customers on their servers, the sooner they start raking in the cash.
Still, I think they've done a good job with what they've given us so far, hopefully the stability issues will get sorted out sooner rather than later.
I was talking 2 one of the npc's in K7 and am i right in thinking that we need to buy our ships when we gain a rank? additionally do we get any credits when we get a rank up? as most missions i do tend to only give tiny ammounts of credits and i think they were asking for 25k credits.
