# 1 Double XP?
01-31-2010, 12:11 AM
Cryptic,

The remaining headstart period should be flagged for double xp. This would go a long way to placate those of us who have been denied the ability to play the game. This would go a long way to rebuild some of the enthusiasm of the player base.

And please address the lack of communication on these outages. I know its the weekend, but we are t- minus 2 days to launch. Good busniess sense would be to have a team on duty during the off hours to address issues. Just toss us a bone, and let us know.

Take 30 seconds and say "Yeah (sigh) the server is down. We are on it. "

Some communication is better than none.

Totally agree.

You say "I know it's the weekend", I laughed my head off. In my mind, there should be NO weekend for them considering launch is on Tuesday.

I mentioned in another thread about the lack of communication. They may not be communicating because they may not know at the moment why the server keeps going down. Although, it would be nice to know that we know they are working on it and not just calling it a night.

On their defense however, the last downtime they had, they did put in the news about the unexpected down time, although it was like an hour before they mentioned anything to us. It's like, yeah, we know, the servers are down because we aren't playing right now. haha

I really don't understand this desire to rush through levels. There are only so many of them after all.

heh I'm having trouble just piddling around so that my connie still has a use (besides uber coolness). Just chill lol. Headstart means big deal. Everybody wants to finish the game before it even releases officially

Take your time. Fondle your tribble. Experience the evolution of the title. If it dies so be it. I think the IP is strong enough that in some form or another it will be around for a bit yet.

Why rush it?

Indeed. The only thing you're rushing towards is having nothing new to do in the game

Nevermind the fact the game is too easy as is and this game doesn't use XP but... Do you want to see Admirals by friday?

There are already people playing every waking moment [when the servers up ]. We're going to see some high level players soon enough. This would only make the problem worse.

If anything, we should ask for something silly to show we made it through the headache of headstart. A suit made of tribbles. I'll take that. How about as special race preset.

I agree, no XP.

I know it would be fun to be capped and on release day laugh at all the poor newbies just getting into the game, but then your laughter turns to tears when there is nothing left to do.
